Hi, my name is Josh Strickland and I am 19 years old. I currently attended college fulltime and I also work two jobs which are PennDOT and Reading Crane and Engineering.
I bought Dean’s books in the beginning of August 2009 but I didn’t have anytime at all to read them. So on September 27th, I finally realized how much real estate could change my life for the better. To make time to even start reading Dean’s books, I deleted my Facebook, Myspace, and AIM accounts; and I also took the television out of my room because it was to much of a distraction. You have no idea how hard it was for me to get rid of them, but now I don’t even miss them! Its great! By getting rid of those four pointess time wasters, I created plenty of time to read and do research on real estate! I have currently read both of Dean’s books, his minibook, and the big newsletter he just released! There is soo much information!
Even though I have already gotten through all of that information, everyone I know including my parents; think I’m an idiot for doing what I am doing and it is impossible for me to become a successful real estate investor. They are ALL wrong! When people tell me negative things like that, it just makes me want to work even harder just to prove them wrong.
I may only be 19 years old, but I have guarantee I am more dedicated, hard-working, and optimistic than 99% of people out there. When I create a goal for myself, I do whatever it takes to accomplish it! I don’t know how to fail. My goal is to become a great real estate investor like Dean and a lot of you!
If you have any tips or pointers, please shoot me a message! I will get back to you within a day! I look forward to talking and learning from you!
Thanks for reading.
