Hi Gang, Could some of you be kind enough to advise me, ASAP! STOP! DON"T DELETE!! LONG MSG. but PLEASE READ IT!! Your ANSWERS could HELP MANY! Need to know which would probably be quickest way to get some cash on RE deals, quickly if not quicker! (***Previous career: Nursing…patient died Jan 23, tired of nursing after 21 years!)
*Let me say, I do have ‘some knowledge’ of RE. Have inactive RE License, practiced only about 6 months before going back to nursing. DO NOT WANT to go back to RE as an agent!
I have many of the RE Courses, Carlton Sheets, Ron LaGrand’s…all 3 courses, Steve Cook’s…Simple Man Guide,
Robert Allen’s, and some others that are much older…even William McCorkell’s…HA! I have already invested several thousands of dollars into courses, training, etc. I even have several ‘good contacts’ in RE plus I know a guy I spoke with about parterning with, he has no RE knowledge but he does have the CASH! He’s in agreement, if I can find and work the deals.
Just overwhelmed with whcih method to ‘start’ with. I have studied all of these in the past, have been doing 'some reviewing past couple of weeks. Should have done this a long time ago, but to be honest…scared, or more so BASHFUL, to get out and attempt to ‘deal with owners’. Need a ‘bolus of nerves’, or an injection of ‘confidence’ but have not found where I can get these dispensed! Ha (But sure have searched!)
PLEASE , someone tell me how you got the nerve and fortitude to do this RE Investing. I love RE, and do so much want to be a success with this. I feel if I could get my first deal quickly and get it closed successfully & quickly…that I would have the confidence to continue. I do know that I have got to do something, quickly. Unfortunately, I have gotten use to eating, having lights, gas, phone, etc; so maybe now, with my back against the wall, I can muster enough courage to do this!
If I only knew which would probably BE BEST TO START WITH! PLEASE ANSWER THIS! ***I am sure there are MANY OTHERS that have these same problems and concerns, maybe their backs aren’t against the wall yet, that would certainly be interested in the many different answers from several of you! So THIS is NOT JUST FOR ME, but for the many that didn’t even have the ‘nerve’ to ask!!! Thanks so very much! Looking forward to a very prosperous ‘new career’ in RE INVESTING! THANKS FOR ALL OF US!!! ‘BJ’
