somehow, Berwyn’s name was still

The description of the Trilogy says it assumes you know the basics. Where do you learn the basics, and just how basic do you mean? I know what a note is, and can kind of run a financial calculator (a Texas Instruments BA-35, nothing fancy like you big boys use.)

I cashed in a small mutual fund so I’d have some money ready at short notice in case an opportunity popped up, and now have that $7000 mouldering at 2%.

Where would one find paper for sale here on the Tundra? North Dakota only has 650,000 inhabitants, and it appears none of them are mortgage or note brokers.

(Can’t wait to get to Dallas for the convention. I was shoveling today in minus 30 wind chill)

Actually the trilogy would work for most anyone on this site. Knowing the basics means a little about real estate, investing and the time value of money. Sounds like you have a basic foundation that would work from what you say here and the posts that I’ve read of yours.

You have more qualifications than I had
when I get John Behle’s video course.
If I wanted to do someone a favor, Iwould
recommend he/she read all the articles
and the posts here. If they are excited
by and/or can see the potential in notes,
start with John’s video course and work
backwords, getting the other material.

I will qualify that by saying, it was
only after watching the video course
that everything made much more sense.
Now I go back and read the other material
with much greater insight and interest.

I wouldn’t wait for the convention at all.
You would probably get much more out of it
having already taken the course. Then, you
can become the Note King of the Tundra.

Here in balmy Chicago, we hit -10 a few
days ago. I, too, was shoveling in -30
wind chills, under 20 inches of snow.

Good luck to you
