This day has saddened me.
I humbly would like to thank those who have come to my defense.
J.P. Vaughan has brought this to my attention yesterday.
I don’t know these people. I don’t know why they would find pleasure
in putting me under attack. They have never been to my workshop.
If they knew anything about my workshop, they would realize that it’s
geared towards experienced investors. I have let some newbie’s attend if
they demonstrated that they were committed or were going full time.
You can’t fool experienced investors, a newbie can be misled because they
may not know the difference in the information, therefore can be easily sold.
Experienced investor expect and demand much more.
I’ve had real-estate brokers, mortgage brokers, commercial real-estate brokers,
attend our workshop. The SUCCESS STORIES that came from our workshop are
from real participants who have either met me at a convention or the workshop,
but prior to that, did not know me or Terry Vaughan.
The workshop is the Sizzle on the steak, The value of the workshop is the mentoring.
When you do a workshop, the information no matter how good it is, is hypothetical
and general, and may not be applicable to the investor. The mentoring makes the
difference. When mentoring, were no longer talking hypothetically, but are one on one
with the individual, and apply the information that is applicable to them.
Terry and I do three months of mentoring. We do not use assistants who may have only
a few years of experience on the participants. The participants pay for us, and that’s what they get.
I don’t think anyone can question the generosity I give with my time. I want to be there when
they need me. To me Deal making is PARAMOUNT. I’ve burnt the midnight candle with many
of my participants when need be. 10 p.m. is a norm. Saturday’s and Sunday’s are a norm.
I can’t begin to tell you the THRILL and HIGH I get, when I’ve walked someone through a deal.
I can’t tell you the PAIN I feel when we’ve lost one.
This explanation was for you not them.
As for them, I feel it often shows a fine command of language to say nothing, and that’s what I’ll do.
