Just this February, I found myself “self unemployed” and two weeks away from not having any income coming in. (not good but I was there)Ill spare the details of how this happened, but you must know, it wasn’t on purpose! I have an awesome wife and two fantastic boys who look to their Daddy for food, home, clothes, and Taco Bell money!
Anyway, I had NO money, two houses over 100K I was trying to sell (to keep head above water),great credit (I paid out like a slot machine)and bills that were compounding with no answers as to pay em. I had read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” and found where Kiyosaki was speaking at some kind of CREonline deal in Atlanta. I figured if he could write a book that good, maybe he could give me some direction as to get out of this hole I had dug. So, I put what seemed like a life savings on my credit card (the last one with any credit still avail)and made plans for Atlanta. Kiyosaki spoke for an hour and a half on the first morning and was GONE! No answers, no meeting him, and still No money!I was stuck there with all these crazy “real estate” people…Thank God!
It was there I heard people like Ed Garcia, Terry Vaughan, Ray Alcorn, Lonnie Scruggs, and many more who inspired me to go home and DO SOMETHING.I went home a Full Time Real Estate Investor! While listening in that convention,Ed and Terry offered a workshop in April on, How To Get Lenders Fighting To Give You Money, for those that qualified. Oh how I had to qualify! Since I didnt have any money to do deals with I HAD to get to that seminar!So I put what seemed like two lifetime savings on a new card and got to that next seminar. From Feb. to April I had done a few deals (thanks so much to David Alexander who coached and coached and coached) so I wasn’t totally in the dark…I had qualified! It was there at the workshop listening to Ed & Terry and networking with others that I gained the knowledge to empower my new real estate venture. The workshop was everything they said it would be and more! Dot (my wife,business partner and best friend) didn’t get to make it but immediately caught my enthusiasm when I got back home. Since those seminars, she and I have bought and sold sixteen properties, leased one of the 100K+ homes for $500 per month cashflow, sold the other one and hold a 10K note on it, have two other rent houses and 3 duplexes.Our income troubles are over, we have respect from the banks in town and now the attorneys are even on our side! We are even in the process of purchasing our first apartment complex (thanks again Ed for the hours of mentoring process after the workshop) and Jim Rayner for all your expertise and unselfishness.The monies invested in gaining knowledge have long been paid for and keep returning profits.
Most of all, we want to give all the glory for our success to our God, who has shown himself strong in all of our deals by granting us uncommon favor and Blessing us as we put him first. Thanks again David Alexander who took us under his wing and helped us with a brilliant, creative mind, and kept telling us to GO FOR IT!! And Thanks so much JP & Terry for creating CREONLINE, and inviting Robert Kiyosaki to speak at convention this year. See you again at this years convention with my wife.
