The Convention - Posted by Josh MA

When a prospective buyer expresses an interest in one of my rehabs, I do not chase after them. I want someone who is serious enough about owning a home that they return phone calls, provide documents, etc. on a timely basis, without prodding. My theory is that if I have to coax and cajole them, then their heart really isn’t in it and they are likely to bail out of the process before settlement.

What’s that got to do with this thread? This wannabe investor wants others to provide the solution to his problem. When he didn’t like the various solutions that were offered, he posted this pitiful, poor-me surrender. I think he is doing exactly the right thing…sitting home wishing he was an investor. Like the unmotivated buyer who is unlikely to make it to settlement, this guy is unlikely to succeed as an investor.

That’s my opinion, anyway.

The pawn shop! But pawn off something that you need so you will be sure to go and retrieve it when you return.

See you at the Convention pal, er will we?

If you’re motivated to attend you will, otherwise you’ll sit home pouting and whining that someone should have paid your way like you thought they would.

It don’t work that way pal, but if you really want to attend you will. Most doers will and all wannabes won’t.

Show me what you are

Not to be harsh with you here, as I don’t think anyone has been harsh with you, I’ve got a question for you.

A week or so ago Jim Rayner, a highly successful investor from your area, offered you a solution to your money problem or the lack of money to attend the upcoming convention. As I recall, Jim kindly offered you a part time job with him so you could earn the money to attend the convention. Did you ever investigate that opportunity.

Here’s hoping you will reconsider Jim’s kind offer. I’m pulling for you, as long as you are willing to sacrafice to get to the convention.

How bad do you really want to become an investor? I won?t let you off this easily.

According to my calendar the average ?e ? person would have at least 12 days off between now and the Convention. This is surely enough time to come up with the necessary funds if you really want to become an investor. This isn?t an overnight transition that you think you want. It takes time, patience, sacrifices, sweat along with a complete turnaround in one?s view of money, life and living. Are you really cut out to be an investor? You hold your future in your hands and based on your post you?re thinking ?inside the box.?

You need only to look outside the box, and there you will find the answer you seek. Is there not something or someone who offered you a solution to this problem just in the past few days? What could you do with 12 days off that could solve this problem? Is there anything that you could do that would perhaps be helpful in becoming an investor?

An opportunity awaits just make that call this evening
