Guys, let me say that the best thing that the sheets material did for us was to start us looking for CREATIVE SOLUTIONS to problems, not at the problems… and what I read in your post is a long list of what you consider to be problems - of sorts. So, if nothing else, get ahold of the stuff from Carleton second hand.
Yes, I think LeGrand’s book is Grand. I also would suggest you spend $12 on Rich Dad, Poor Dad… a mind changing book by R. Kiyosaki.
But down whoever’s path you choose to start, give it the attention it merits. And start right now becoming familiar with your real estate market… look at ads, for sales and rentals, in your area. Call on a few and pretend you are a buyer (it costs nothing). Feel a bit foolish. Start asking questions. Pick up a few of the REI books at the used bookstore. Something.
My hubby used to be dean of students at a college nearby, and when he spoke to adults who were contemplating getting / finishing their degree, and they would say “but at night it will take me 5 years!” his response was to ask them what they’ll be doing 5 yrs from now if the DONT finish it.
I tend to get all intense about this stuff… but I wish someone had suggested to me that I start at 3, not at 49! We would be financially independent long ago. As it is, it will take us another couple of years, no doubt…
Oh well, if we HADN’T gotten started when we did, where would we be today…?
