I’m glad you asked. Now you’ve got me started so sit down and get comfortable for my response - it’s going to be long…
First I suggest you take a look at the post above titled Thank you Lonnie, Jackie and JPiper written David S… I think it will give you an idea about the power of the information that you will receive at the Creative Real Estate Convention.
Second let’s get it straight about the difference between a late night infomercial and the convention.
An informercial (as I’m sure you know) just teases you with vague ideas and lots of numbers about how much money you "could"make. There is absolutely NO meat - nothing you can take home and put to immediate use to make money. Am I right?
At the convention - each one of the speakers will go into great detail, often with real life examples of transactions, about what they do, how they do it, why they do it, what the alternatives are and what is the best way for you to get started doing the same thing.
You’ll learn some new techniques for squeezing money out of deals that most people would just walk away from.
Sure they will all have something to sell - but there will not be a sales pitch (it’s just not allowed) they’ll just tell you if you want more information I have some materials in the back.
The speakers aren’t going to tease you with vague information. They will give you enough details that if you have a half way good understanding of creative real estate you’ll be able to go home with just what they have taught you in the presentation and make more money. You don’t HAVE to buy anything.
It’s the information the speakers talk about that is NOT in their courses that you will find most valuable - you might call it insider secrets. The real powerful stuff!
How many times have you read a course and listened to all the tapes but STILL just don’t quite understand what to do - or how to do it. That’s the magic of the convention - the speakers understand the topic so well (because they do what they teach every day) that they will be able to help you achieve a crystal clear understanding. And if you still don’t get it - just raise your hand and ask - they will clarify the topic to make sure you understand.
Most seminars have a front man that is there just to sell stuff - chances are he hasn’t even done any of the deals he is talking about but he is darn good at selling courses - you just will NOT find that at the convention - these folks are the REAL THING!
And if that’s not enough - how about being able to sit down with the speakers at the roundtable and ask them as many questions as you want AND get answers - you just don’t get that on an infomercial nor at any seminars.
Do I need to go into the value of networking with all the other investors that will be there? People like David Segars (remember his post above) or Jim Piper – these are real investors out there doing the business day in and day out - I bet you’d like the opportunity to pick their brains - believe me they can teach us ALL a thing or two - AND the best part is they ARE willing to do it!
This is NOT an infomercial - nor is it your typical seminar/convention - REALLY! It’s time well spent as an investment in your future - an investment that can help you take your business to the next level. The question is … are you really ready for the challenge?
