DGFam - so often I get asked about how to get started. Frankly, it kind of mystifies me because everyone has access to 30 Days to Real Estate Cash - Dean's fabulous cookbook to getting your first deal done! He gives away tons of free copies all the time. So the actual instruction is out there. Therefor, I have to conclude, it's more a question of getting yourself in the right mindset to jump in. If you are totally satisfied with your life today and what you are able to contribute to those you love, then, well, you don't have to get going. But you wouldn't be reading this if that was the case. I honestly wish I could just push you all in the pool so to speak, and then you would have to find out you already know how to float and swim, or learn real quick to survive!
