Bill called me today in response to my answering his
After conversing with Bill, I realized that there is a lot of
all of us.
Here is a man who is retired and has been trying
to do deals as
mentioned on this site with out the success he feels he should have
received. When an
individual works a technique or system that everyone
seems to be
successful with, and it doesn?t seem to work for them, they
confidence in that technique or system and feel it?s just a lot of B.S.
Bill was frustrated about the whole thing and decided to challenge the
board, and for no better choice of words , as kind of a reality check.
His thinking was, since he was not having much success with doing
deals himself, then let the people who say they are doing them,
partner up with him and show him it can be done.
Sometimes when we post our success on this board, we make them seem
easy. The truth of the matter is, that a lot of hard work goes into them.
I?m sure a lot of viewers feel the frustration felt by Bill.

I watch people who read and learn the information necessary to do a
deal, find that it won?t work when they apply it themselves.
The reason being, is even though the courses and information
provided by this forum is invaluable. It doesn?t teach negotiating or
how to sell, which is paramount in deal making.
Terry Vaughan brought this to my attention 6 months ago, and
suggested that we incorporate this in our work shop.
At that time I told Terry, that we only have 3 days and already we
had to eliminate information.
But after seeing Bill?s posting today, I?m thinking that Terry is right.
What?s your opinion ?
