Who is a mentor? Could be most anyone. Ya just never know do you?
I know that I have written in the past about bending the ears of some great full time investors here, Jackie Lange, Jim Kennedy, David Alexander, William, Joe Kaiser and Bill Bronchick as well as others.
I hope, nope IT IS on my agenda, to get to know JPiper, Merle, Phil and Steve Cook a lot better at this upcoming event.
Today I had a great time watching a master of people skills in the Bassman. There was no doubt he is a people person who I could learn a lot from. I enjoyed the lunch also. I was not sure about meeting with a Realtor, much less one that was an investor also.
Let me tell you I would be missing out if I didn’t go. He already gave me comp info on a house that I would have more likely passed on that could now give me a great deal of equity ($20k worth).
Was the lunch worth it? Do you need a second? All this while also we talked about things we were both facing too personal to mention here so it was not all work. And that made it even better.
I keep seeing people ask what should I do? What do I do next?
Find out who is doing what you want to do and meet them. You don’t get what you don’t ask so ASK! I heard that a few times today. Examine your circle of friends. HARD.
Try to give back what you recieve and more. It’ll make you feel better.
Those are my reflections on the day.
Yes I made an offer on another deal that looks like it will fly as well. (No Offers No Deals)
Pretty good day.
