I'm writing a story of having arrived to real estate investing and the purpose of pursuing investment excellence.

I have a 6 page rough draft written but need a lot of help punching it up, editing, distilling and creating a strong and compelling story about how I got into real estate.

I will eventually be presenting this so the story has to reek of simplicity. I need to simplify the story to its actual core. What is the core? Why does it matter and why does somebody care? I want the story to never be forgotten. It needs to be sticky, in other words elegant, simple, vivid and memorable. I need someone to help me be absolutely ruthless in editing and simplifying this story so that there is absolutely nothing left to take away. We need to include all the key points as they are inside the realm of real estate investing but represent this story in the simplest form possible.
