What do I do if my job says it's a conflict of interest to invest in real estate?

If your job has a non-compete clause, or is finance related and doesn't allow investment in real estate, you will likely need to utilize an entity, or possibly an entity in a trusted loved ones name to pursue investing. While it is normally only an issue of violating company policy, it is best to consult with an attorney to ensure you do not violate any laws. As long as you are not violating any laws, you merely run the risk of losing a job. If you truly are passionate about becoming an investor, that is more important than a temporary job that can be replaced.
