Terry hit the mark… the ultimate person who will be responsible for your success is you. The Cash Flow program is pretty solid, and it has turned out some very successful cash flow professionals - but it is expensive, and very few people make it. The biggest reason is that too many students somehow convinced themselves that spending that kind of money by itself, would make the business work.
Anybody can make it in the note business, but not EVERYBODY can do it. Research has shown time and again that a good many people are afraid of money, period. Not making it (although a surprisingly high amount have that fear too??!) - but dealing with it. Others can’t cope with punching numbers and getting comfortable with operating financial calculators. And the plain truth is, not everybody is cut out to run their own business.
Much better to do what Terry suggested. There are plenty of low cost books and courses you can start out with to get familiar with the ground, before you spend a big chunk of dough to find out it’s not something you can stick with. And, right here on this website, you can put your own FREE mini-seminar together, simply by plowing through the Archives and the related How-To-Reports. Too many folks just want somebody to open up the top of their heads and pour the knowledge in - but it isn’t that simple! You have to learn it! And to learn it well, you have to LIKE it! You can get it done pretty well on your own, in three months or less, and for less than $700 (depending on how many different things you try to learn). After that, you’ll spend more as you go along… none of us stop the learning process.
By the way, American Cash Flow does publish an excellent monthly newsletter (the American Cash Flow Journal) that is something every note broker can benefit from… it’s $99 per year.
Hope that helps, and best wishes for your success!
