I’m 21, just got the Carleton Sheets course. I haven’t made any deals yet, but I can tell you that reading it was definitely worth my time. It makes you realize how easy it is, and there really aren’t any tricks to it. It’s all common knowledge that he has put together for 30 some years so you don’t have to wait that long to figure it out.
Remember, that it’s not a get-rich-quick program and it’s possible you can be “wealthy” in 5 years, but I wouldn’t try and take the chances where you’re putting all of your money on the line. Take it one deal at a time and the properties will speak for themselves.
You’re still young, younger than most people who want to take control of their finances, and trying to be wealthy by the time your 21 isn’t something that should be of concern. It would be great to have it that way, but being young, you have alot of time for your properties to appreciate, and if you save your money in an interest-bearing account, the time value of money and compounding will greatly benefit you.
