Don’t lay such a heavy burden on the Gurus. If somebody (potential investor) buys a course or material from a Guru and leaves it in a box, never tries it, that is not the Gurus fault. However, that should be a definite signal to the buyer-I don’t like this stuff, I don’t understand it, I can’t(will not) make it work, etc…Please don’t spend any more money for something they you(they)will never use and then find countless reasons why it didn’t work, never mind their own admission that THEY DIDN’T WORK!
I started my education with a guy named Ed Beckley-kind of a forerunner to Mr. Sheets- who has long since been out of the picture. I have acquired many current day Gurus material. But, the best info for me, personally, has been from Ron Legrand. I bought his three mods initially, and, have gone on to buy just about everything he sold at SDI. I have been to numerous SDI boot camps, while Ron was there, and I never looked back at anything I bought. Even to this day I buy materials and attend work shops or whatever the current description is.
I never intended to fail, I intended to win. I did what ever the teacher said the best possible way I could do it. Not everything that I have done works. Surprise, surprise. But, I don’t quit trying.
I attended a$3,000.00 work shop in the early part of this summer. My wife wanted to know why I was going,one of my mortgage brokers wanted to know why I was going. That thought I knew it all. Well, I am smart enough to know that I don’t know it all. I must continue to learn. And, so will any successful business person.
I just went to see my cancer doctor. I learned he had just been to a convention. I wonder why. I thought he knew it all. Well, if he goes and learns I guess I am not such a klutz after all.
I currently concentrate on pretty houses, taking subject to. If I can’t get the deed I don’t get the house. There is usually some fix up, usually some payments to make up, but, that is where I have found that I am most comfortable. I usually generate 20-25k net per house. I average about 1 per month.
I hope this helps.
Good luck, and, good investing
