Thank you for the warm welcomes… it’s much appreciated.
JohnBoy… on this short notice I’m not sure if making it to the convention is feasible but this might change in the next few days.
I’m intensely reading everything on this site and have been at for 8+ hours. I’m compiling a list of reading materials from the suggestions here. The Finance board is just packed w/ information but much of it is going over my head indicating much study/research is required.
I was originally drawn to this site by the Carleton Sheets forum (as I take it many are as well). But the wealth of infomation that I’m gathering from reading the many posts on the Finance and other forums is opening a whole new vista of ideas.
Tons of ideas and thoughts to ponder and lots of reading ahead… I’m very much looking forward to it all.
The amazing thing is how much more comfortable I feel about REI now that I’ve been here. At 8am this morning I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the prospects and uneasy/nervous at what I preceived to be the process of REI. But after a day of reading several hundred posts I’m so pleased to find this resource of information and a group of people who have many of the same goals and fears as I do and a group of professionals who have been where I/we are now and have made a successful and very profitable career in REI.
It has increased my comfort level immensely and reduced my uneasyness by leaps and bounds. Always nice to learn that you’re not floating in this ‘ocean’ alone – I see that there are many others with me and lots of experienced captains to help steer us through. (Is that enough seafaring analogies? ;>)
