I’m not sure how much inner strength it requires to give someone a used Carleton Sheets course. I suspect not much.
You asked a question earlier about “which form to use.” It was obvious to me that you should not be thinking about attempting the deal you described if you didn’t even know the basics of how to do it. You also talked about a form you got from Bronchick’s site as though it were something important (it wasn’t). On top of that, you misunderstood the purpose of the form itself.
All that immediately raised red flags and that’s why I replied. It was not possible to simply state what “form” you needed since the form was, in my view, the least of your problems. And in case you haven’t noticed, that’s all we do here . . . state our views. If what I said was something you didn’t need or want to hear, well, that’s fine too. Just take whatever information you can use and get on with things.
The problem, of course, is that you let my reply “get your dander up,” even though it was something you needed to hear or at least think about. Apparently, you weren’t able to see that. Hopefully, at some point you’ll learn that it often makes more sense to listen to people who know more than you.
Finally, until you’ve actually done a deal successfully, it really makes no sense for you to be giving out advise to people who really want to learn how things are done. I know that sounds harsh, but it isn’t . . . it’s reality.
