HELP GETTING STARTED - RALEIGH, NC
May 11, 2009
On July 28, 2008, I was involved in a 43% Reduction In Force. I have very strong skills in my field as a Facility Manager and didn’t think that I would have trouble finding a good job. Wow, was I in for a rude awakening! When I started my job hunt, it became very clear just how bad the economy is. I posted my resume on all the major job boards, used recruiters, looked at the want ads, etc., etc. The end result is that I have not to this point been able to find work in my field. Due to this, I have been on unemployment insurance since then, which is $494 per week (with an additional $25 per week recently added due to the Stimulus Package). This doesn’t go very far, it barely keeps my wife and I going but does NOT provide enough money to make house payments or payments for health insurance (we have no health insurance).
In October of 2008, I purchased Dean’s book ‘Be A Real Estate Millionaire.’ I didn’t do anything with this. Then I saw another one of Dean’s infomercials and in February of 2009 purchased his book ‘Profit From Real Estate Right Now!’ Well, since I couldn’t afford to pay for the training then (or now), I didn’t do anything with either of these books until today, when I finally started reading his current book and I must conclude that this is fabulous! After seeing how Dean breaks down the process step by step it seems clear that I can do this and become financially independent the same as others that have used his methods.
My real motivation about doing this now is my current economic condition, which has gone from bad to worse. As you could probably conclude from my opening paragraph, my wife and I are now on the verge of losing everything we own. So I have two questions to ask the group:
1. Can I be successful with this just by reading the book? I would love to have a trainer but I just can’t afford it (unless there is a possibility of paying for the training after I have made a few sales. Is this possible?)
2. Is there anyone in the Raleigh/Durham, NC area who is successful and would be good-hearted enough to show me ‘the lay of the land’ to help me get started?
Here is hoping for everyone great success!
