I spent the last hour talking to RIna and it occured to me that one of the reasons for my reverant irritation with people lately is not that I have grown and their questions irritate me...no thats not it.
I believe the answer is that the foundation is not completely there.
Please understand - I think every book Dean has written is AWESOME! but for me, and I stress, for me... the foundation to my REI success has been Be A Real Estate Millionaire.
BARM gave me the basis and the knowledge to try a multitude of different strategies. I think that if you read on of the other two books and don't read BARM then you dont have the complete picture.
It may also be the fact that BARM has way more creativity in it for me. It allowed me to open my mind and explore the REI possibilities that others never thought of. It allowed me the abilty to ask for things that I would have never othersise thought of.
I keep multiple copies of BARM all over the place. I se it to teach my real este investment group. I refer others to it. Now please don't think that I do not value the other two books, because I do and I am even in them, but I just realized that for me.... reading the other two books without reading BARM would be like watching the sequel in a movie and never really understanding the point of it because I never saw the original.
So I guess what I am trying to say is that if you are still finding yourself with lots of questions or wondering if yo missed something, maybe you should go and read Be A Real Estate Millionaire. The information and imagination in there is invaluable and if you want to FEEL the real Dean...then take a good read. For me I feel that there is invaluable experience to be gained from the reading of this book.
No I am not trying to get you to buy anyhing I just wanted to express my thoughts to you on what helped me. I re-read this book probably once a month or more and use it for reference all the time. I just want everyone on here to have the same skill set that I do and gain the same abundance of knowledge that I and so many others did. Read all threee books to get the complete picture - THEN - take the REI world be storm.
And in case you are reading this Dean..know that I love you and all you do. I just wanted to share what made me the REI I am today, and that was you and BARM!
Go Get Em' Guys!
