I bought the book, read it, got excited, have done some searcing on properties both in and out of state. I actually took the step before to e-mail and even call to try to get some information on a couple of properties - but got no response at all on those.
FEAR began to take over. I read once that fear stands for False Evidence Appearing Real and I believe that to be true! I began to feel that maybe this won't work since I couldn't even gather information.
There was one particular property that was a big BINGO all the way across the board. It was about 4 hours away and I had planned for several weeks to go take a look and try to contact the owner face to face since I could nto find any phone info. anywhere.
WELL I DID IT! I finally drove up, found the property and waited until I thought someone would be home. I was scared to death but knew I HAD to do this since I drove all this way - to make it a little shorter - I drove over and talked to the owner - THAT WAS MY BIGGEST HURDLE TO GET OVER but I did it.
No, things don't look as if they will work out at this point - but information was exchanged, etc.
THE MAIN POINT IS THIS: It was a big step that was taken and I proved to myself that I can do it despite the fear.
Do NOT let fear (look again at the acrostic above) paralyze you.
I look forward to posting a note on my first actual deal before too long.
Thanks for allowing to share my excitement!
