It’s a very friendly group. There will be lots of other new people there, too. In the meantime, post your state when you post, so that you can find out who else from your area is going. Bring your business cards, or make some for the occasion, and plan to collect as many as you can while there, or any contact numbers. There will likely be
a bulletin board to post people looking for other
people, or ads for properties. Try to get familiar with
the lingo by continuing to read here, and use the archives to check out unfamiliar terms. Look at the posts.
I also find it’s better to have some courses to tie it
all together. Reading the posts is helpful, but they are all over the place, not in an outline form that helps you organize like a book or course notebook. (Except that there are archives now). I need both.
Make a notebook of all the subjects and your questions.
Also, attend a few REIA meetings in your area if you can, they often have speakers, sometimes on non-meeting nights. They don’t ask what you do for a living, or when you’re going to quit your J.O.B, or how many years experience you have. Once the agenda is posted, look up the speakers and read their articles on this board or elsewhere.
For example, the keynote speaker will be Roger Dawson,
I was able to get his 12(?)-tape audio course on negotiation from the local library. I’ll review it again before the convention.
For every one snarly person ( I acutally met one!) at the convention, there will be, what is is now, about
400 nice people, many of them with decades of experience, many new, all helpful on some level.
After all, it’s the creonline.com convention, so who
do you think is attending? WE lovely folks!
Hope to see you there!
