Re: Legrand boot camps vs. course material? - Posted by Jim Beavens

I too bought his materials at the convention, and over the weekend I received a letter implying that I was going to soon be offered a special price to his boot camp.
So far I have gone through his FSBO and Lease/Option modules, and my impression is that although these courses are very useful for the beginner and help in building confidence to call people and come up with different offers for different situations, he leaves out certain details to be covered at the boot camps.
For example, I remember in the Lease/Option module somebody asked a question about what the process is when your tenant/buyer is ready to exercise their option (or something like that). LeGrand said that’s a good question, and that he goes over it in his boot camp, or if they get to that situation then they could call the hotline. He went ahead and answered the question and talked about a bit, so it’s not like he was holding back anything, but I think that the boot camp delves into some of the minutia that is involved in closing and following through with deals.
The letter I got said that participants can bring their own leads, and the group would call sellers in their hometown from the boot camp and try to construct some deals right there. I could see how this might be useful to some folks.
As for me, I spent a lot of money at the convention, and it’s my belief that I obtained everything I need to get started. So I made a commitment that I wasn’t going to spend any more money on my education until I have used the education that I am currently receiving to do some deals.
Personally, I bought both LeGrand’s and Bronchick’s materials, and I think LeGrand’s stuff is great for analyzing all of the myriad situations that are going to be thrown at you to find out how to profit, but for many of the details on exactly how each method will work, I refer to Bronchick’s courses and forms. So far I’m only 2/3rds through Bronchick’s lease-option workshop, but he seems to go through a much more basic, step-by-step approach through the entire process.
I think I will eventually attend a boot camp (with proceeds from a deal, of course), but right now I think I have all I need to do quite a bit of damage in this business.
