Bootcamps teach a much more in depth, advanced level of training than can be learned from just books and tapes. It accelerates the pace that you achieve your goals. It’s a little like s_ _, reading books and listening to tapes about it just can’t come close to the live “hands on” action.
I may be a little biased (I’m an instructor at Ron LeGrands Bootcamps and work on his Hotline), but I can tell you this - the results we see from our student/customers after their training are tremendous. I get to read the letters and take the phone calls from people who have gone out and completed their first deal. Some of them nearly bring tears to my eyes. That’s the reason I keep this part of my career. Their excitement, their enthusiasm, their feeling of finally seeing the pathway to success, that’s better than any paycheck could provide.
I realize I could make much more money for myself if I was a full time investor and didn’t commit so much time to working the events and the Hotline, but I have learned what Zig Ziglar professes - the best way to become successful is to help other people become successful. It works.
