July 14, 2009 the day I went Pro ! ? !
For a few years now I have wanted to be apart of the real estate world as a investor and a landlord. To reach this goal I have completed several home study courses taking something from each. I feel that I have quite a bit of information but have failed to succeed do to lack of commitment to action. The one thing I can guarantee you must have to succeed in real estate is a commitment to action.
I was brought up working middle class and have known the stability and comfort of a good job. Well the last couple years have not been so stable so I needed to make a change. That is when I started to become interested in real estate, and started dreaming the real estate dream.
The first couple of years hurt my situation by buying into a program that just was not a good fit especially at that time. My consumer spending had made my income to debt ratio unacceptable. The mentoring program that I joined pushed my credit card to the limit and the mentor was going to show me the awesome tool of credit card debt as short term investment capital. What could I say "thanks that's great". Time to get serious.
I started studying for my Real Estate Sales Person License about a year and a half ago. Just about the time I purchased the first set of materials from Dean. I have now obtained my license and now have a desk at a large nationally recognized firm.
As a license my goal is to help others and learn the industry inside out. I believe what goes around comes around, so if I'm truly helpful to others I will be rewarded for it. The knowledge and resources that I gain will ultimately benefit my investments and working as a agent will satisfy my working class upbringing.
