The start of this enterprise (real estate), seems to be cautious for the majority, unless the individual is fully equipped, prepared and well funded to achieve the spectacular results that the field promises. The caution you've alluded to is sound, however, you will be challenged to achieve your first "deal" trying to become a master juggler. Put yourself in your client's shoes, how would you feel if your "professional" (in any field) were working part time on your most important financial transaction in their life?
Not trying to point out the obvious, but, again, you would be best equipped to do this business allying yourself with someone that does it full time and learn the ropes, so to speak, by watching them work YOUR deal and give you a fair share of that once completed.
Good luck, and happy trails!
