Maybe you could attempt to read posts before replying to them. Read the whole thread and the post I was replying to.
I don’t hate Sheets, nor do I try to criticize him. He’s just an educator not a deity as the original poster believes. And other educators are not just Sheets students trying to capitalize on the wealth of knowledge Sheet’s created. Few educators I have ever known are even Sheet’s students.
And I am not a “player hater” as you intimate. I’ve turned down infomercials from since before Sheets was in the business of education. I replied to a post that someone made that was ridiculous, then he attacked me, my motives, etc.
Read that original post. He basically stated Sheet’s created the world and everyone and everything here is just stolen from Sheets. That is a naive and ridiculous statement. I pointed out that creative real estate and many of the other educators were around long before Sheets and then this guy started insulting me. I have no problem with Sheets, but he neither created the industry or the material he sells. I don’t care about that or whether he does infomercials, coaching, etc.
But, he did not create the material. Every other course and educator did not steal it from him. Of the many, many tens of thousands of students some have been successful. More have not. The successful students I have talked with or heard from started with Sheets and then heavily supplemented their education from other sources. That’s why they had the success and is the approach people should take.
Yet, to claim Sheets is the result of their success is like a Kindergarten teacher taking credit for the success of Bill Gates.
The material is basic. It is not original. Sheets did not create it. Some students have found success. All in all, he has added value to the industry by sharing what he has (repackaged material from others).
But, he didn’t create it and everyone else in the world did not learn from him as the original post stated. Read the posts first next time before you insult people.
“Write an article” Maybe you should also read a little on the internet too before you cast insults. There are many articles here and hundreds throughout the internet that I have written. In addition, thousands upon thousands of posts here. Sheets drinks Margaritas and plays golf for his spare time. I help others.
I don’t “poo-poo on the newbies”. There are very few people who spend as much time and effort helping them as I do. Thousands of posts and thousands of hours. So maybe you should look at who you insult before you insult them also.
Nothing in my posts were “grumbling, I coulda done that”. I responded to the original post that Sheets didn’t create the universe. Then the guy questioned my intelligence, motives, etc. and I responded.
I should have known better than to even come over to this particular forum. There is rarely any value in anything anyone says. Bad attitudes and nasty insults. A collection of guru haters and guru worshipers with little interest in really learning about real estate. Most don’t even take the time to find out there are other 'real" forums on this site.
This particular forum was created for the specific purpose of directing all of that nonsense away from the main forum so that people could actually get an education and help each other. I don’t post here often, but the original post - which you probably never read was ridiculous. So, since you likely did not read it, here is what he said that I responded to.
“You have all learned all you now know as a result of carleton sheets courses ,so, quit acting like you are some kind of genius who thought it all up yourself. get real !!!”
