Are there any newbies in Michigan that will be attending the convention? It’s a little intimidating for me, though I’ll make every effort to go. Just wanted to know if anyone else feel the same way.

I was a Michigan newbie attending my first convention last year. I cannot emphasize enough that you should go. At that time wasn’t sure what area of investing I wanted to get into. I too was very intimidated.

When I got there, I had a blast!! The guest speakers were great (loved Jeffrey Taylor!), and actually did most of my learning in THE BAR. That’s because I got to meet great folks like Phil Fernandez, HR, Steve Cook, Lonnie and Joanne Scruggs and a host of others. They all freely shared information on deals they’ve done, and seem to enjoy sharing info and helping others. I decided after the convention to get into mobile homes. This year I’m branching out to another area, to be determined soon. All my successes are due to what I’ve learned through creonline and all the great folks associated with them.

Send me a private email if you’d like, I’m downriver as well. Would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

KJ, I and my partner (actually my sister-in-law) will hopefully be seeing you in Atlanta. We are newbies too from the Detroit area. Looking forward to it!

You’ll find a nice mix of new investors, old time investors, and investors that have done a few deals. It’s probably around a third of each. Having gone to the last two and already signed up again for this years convention, I can tell you it’s an extremely friendly helpful group. The older guys make the newer guys feel right at home. And you will notice this right away on Thursday when you arrive. I saw no egos, just everybody having a great time. We are still learning also. Doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in the business, there is always something to learn.

Hope this helps.
