I'm Patrice, and my husband and I ordered Deans books a little less than a month ago. I started on the first, "How to be a Real Estate Millionaire"; and pretty much am finished with it. I started "Profit from Real Estate RIGHT NOW!" and it's like I can't get enough of it! I feel like I'm almost there as far as the exact knowledge that I need to gain in order to get started. To be quite honest, I'm a little nervous. The truth of the matter is how many "no"'s do you get before you get a "yes"? Eventually it will come, right?!
So then, Devin, my husband, won the "Gain the Edge 09" kit and man, is it AWESOME!! To me, it was like confirmation that this is what we need to be doing. So, with the Edge and the books I seem to really feel like this can happen.
I know what I want to start focusing on first, as a plan is always necessary. I want to start with assignments. Get a little money to pay off some of our debts, like from college and just life in general. Then, start rebuilding our credit. My parents keep asking us about the $8000 incentive that will be up this month to buy a house, but I just don't know if we should do that right now.
My sister works at a bank and she can get me a copy of all the banks foreclosed homes! So, I do have a stepping stone there. I think my challenge will be in finding buyers for the properties. I picked up the "Southside Shopper" (that's like a penny pincher) and I did see a perspective investor. I just feel nervous about contacting them. I don't want to sound like I don't know what I'm talking about. HOWEVER!! I stay on this website, in the books, and watching the DVDs.
I continue to think about those who achieved even though others said they wouldn't! I just have faith that this is a venue to get my family where we need to be. As Joe would say, Believe and Achieve!
