Let me tell you a story about opportunity:
Around the turn of the century (20th), two shoe salesmen were sent to the continent of Africa to try and drum up shoe sales for their respective employers (competitors). They were to arrive, take orders and wire back if they needed more than would be shipped to them while they were there.
The first salesman took a look around at all the people and noticed not a single one wore any shoes. He IMMEDIATELY wired back his office and wrote. Bad news! Turn the shipment around! Not a single person here wears any shoes! It’s a big waste of time!
The Second salesman, upon taking a look around at all the people walking around without shoes IMEEDIATELY wire his office and wrote: GREAT NEWS! Second a second shipment of shoes! Not a SINGLE person hear wears any! Unlimited potential market!!!
I guess what I’m saying here is twofold. You can take a look at your investor club and think, I can’t do this. Or, you can look at them and think, Wow, there’s so many of them, there must be enough business for even me to join!
Not to mention, that’s 100 fellow investors who can:
-Buy an assignable contract from you when you want to flip
-Birdog for if you don’t want to control a house
-Be a hard money investor to you
-Be a partner on a deal you need a partner on
-An unlimited source of support and information (much like this board)
-100 people to choose from if you want a Mentor
-… and the list can go on
Personally, I agree with JohnBoy. When I drive or fly, I look at ALL THOSE HOUSES out there and think, there’s no way anybody can handle all that business out there by themselves.
So, are you gonna be salesman #1 or #2?
Best of luck to you!
