Newbie vs. “scholar” w/o experience - Posted by Brandi_TX

Aren’t they the same thing??
From our chat last light, you stated you have read $2,000.00 worth of courses and been studying this site for a year now. Yet, to date, you have no deals under your belt. We all learn and do at our own pace, but doesn’t that make us BOTH “newbies”?
While I commend your quest for knowledge, I do think there is such a thing as “over educating” yourself. I truly believe in continuing education, but not at the expense of letting hands-on experience pass you by.
You are submitting an offer for your 1st deal today, and that is great!! You said if you wholesale it, you will profit 3k. We all have our own opinions, and in mine, this deal will still leave you in the negative. Why? For the simple fact that 3k minus 2k (for the courses), leaves you with 1k. Don’t you think all the time you spent on-line over the past year is worth more than that? (Not to mention all the time you spent studying those courses.)
We both have one thing in common. The need to GET A MOVE ON our business. You have been very careful to not “jump” into anything, costing you valuable time. Just because I MAY have access to 45k and have claimed the title of a newbie, does not mean that I will ignore all the great advice here and jump without looking.
“Newbie” DOES NOT = “Stupid” And for those of you that disagree, where did you begin? This flame is not going out simply because there are “dream-killers” on this sight.
I’ll tell you what, Adam. I will promise to use little or none of the 45k to swing my 1st deal - IF - you promise to incorporate a little more dealing and a little less studying and making excuses. DEAL? After all we are both still “newbies”, aren’t we??
Best of luck to you - I will see you in the Player’s Club
