Don't give up. 

It's not easy at the start and will feel like trying to push start a truck, but once you find an area and a deal, you can leverage the knowledge of that area and of the letting agent, if used, and suddenly you're ahead of probably 90% of investors looking in that area.

I'd say the number one bit of advice I'd give is to be completely aware of your long-term goals, and don't lose sight of them.

And always keep learning. Things change, especially over time (e.g. new taxes, building regs, council crackdowns etc.), so to be and stay successful, you need to be on top of things. You don't need to know everything, you just need to know who to call...
