first let me say I’ve never read or heard the CS stuff at all. Have lots of friends that have. From what I’ve have heard is that it gives a good basic start in Real Estate.
Now with that said, it sounds as if your ready to change your life. If you are you have to start educating yourself somewhere. This education needs to be in an overall understanding of business and Investing without you’ll probably stay in the same circle of life.
To many people worry about the vehicle they use to get them there and not enough about the fundamentals of investing and business.
One you understand the fundamental basics, you could sell peanuts on a street corner and get wealthy.
So the real question is… Will RE work for you? Is RE for you? Can’t answer that one.
This is what I would do. Buy(run to the store) Rich Dad/Poor Dad, and the Cash Flow Quadrant both by Robert Kiyosaki. Then Start your RE education by reading everything on this site, Newgroup one, two, the Cashflow forum, money making ideas, success stories, how to articles, and on and on. If it still interests you, then jump in and decide what the next course of action for yourself is.
RE is an excellent way to go, wish I had discovered it 20 years ago.
