July 19 2009 OK. I am a 54 y.o. who has been "tinkering" in Real Estate on and off for the past few years. Things have gotten to the point in my life where I must make a dramtic decision to become wealthy via the real estate model. I had bought some investment properties in the past but never anything to write home about. Due to the recent downturn in the economy my private business took a major hit about 1 year prior. This caused me to go into major debt with credit cards (used to pay off business loans) and now i am trying to play catch up which is not easy. I was up one night (couldn't sleep, gee I wonder why?) and caught Dean's infomercial. Something about the presentation caught my interest. Don't ask me what, but my gut feeling was singing loudly. I attended seminars in the past (ie; Rehabbing homes; Real Estate courses; etc.). As of today I never really put much time into any of them. This time though it was different. I devoured the book and took copious notes. I wrote a business plan and road map to follow. I decided this time I was not going to re-invent the wheel and instead focus on what Dean was teaching. I am in such a positive frame of mind I know this will work. I will keep you up-dated on my progress. I will start today:
DAY #1 - Day #3: Worked on setting up the free web site. Almost finished. Signed up for COA phone messaging service, will still need to record my messages but I will tackle this next. Got the AFF site partially done. I am doing all of this in time I have found that normally would be wasted. I am dedicated. I still have my own business to consider but i can work on both.
My Goal: Be out of all debt in 18 months. Do 5 NMD deals by October 1 2009. Make at least 10K per deal. I also statred to take more of an active role in my life. Some recent books I have purchased and read. "Success through a Positive Mental Attitude" W.Clement Stone; Success Principles by Jack Canfield. I will be asking for advice and posting hopefully on a semi-regular basis with much shorter entries. This 1st entry was just to introduce myself and my present situation. Good Luck and Success to all
