I'm Scott. Hello to my new family. Well I am not afraid to work hard to earn the things I want but I am also lazy at times. So with that in mind I am copying some of my 'About Me' here.
I currently live in Waco, Tx. I will be moving to Victoria, Tx soon. March(2010) is my goal month to move. I'm broke, of course, but I have a strong back and I am a hard worker. I am hungry for a better life and that hunger motivates and inspires me to go the distance.
2010 is MY year. 2011 though 2014 are mine also. I own and cherish BARM. I read it once though and am starting on a second time now. I planned it that way. The first reading was just that reading only with no action. A few things about that book: One I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would enjoy reading a book about real estate so much. Yes, I know that is an unfair statement about the book. It is so much more than just a book about real estate. I am not really sure how Dean did it since we have never met before, but I know he wrote Barm with me in mind. He knows me really well for never having met. The book was obviously written for me, to me, and about me. Dean, if you ever read this well nevermind I'll tell you in person once I joined the inner circle. I am doing a bit more than reading it this time. I am highlighting and taking notes, doing all the things that are suggested like writing down goals etc. Studying it like my life depends on it. My new life does actually depend on it doesn't it?
I am working on a plan for my new life, which will include goals for the here and now and also for the next 5 years. I am StudentScott right now and not DGReiScott because until I have invested in real estate twice I am just a student. Investing once would make me an owner, twice would make me a beginning investor.
As I mentioned above I will be moving in a few months. I am going to Tucson for a month or so to help my parents out in about 2 weeks. They are retiring soon, sometime this year, and moving back to Texas. I am going to help them do some things to thier house getting it ready to sell. So with all that in mind my plan is to study and learn over the next few months. Building my confidence and preparing myself to be "DGReiScott" and not just StudentScott. I am taking a little slower approach but based on the big picture of my future not just the right here and now. I am going to arm myself though learning with the power of knowledge over the next 3 months and there after to battle life for the freedom I desire and WILL earn.
I have spent many hours reading and studying here and I would like to thank everyone for eveything you do and to truly express what I mean by that let me say this. If I took no action at all. If I did nothing more than what I have done so far. Just reading Barm, and the hours I have spent reading and studying here with all of you has alredy changed my life for the better.
My goal for today is to complete a rough draft of my daily schedule for January2010. How I will study and learn about my new life as a REI.
TODAY is the first day of the rest of my life and I need some really good sunscreen.
