I just thought I'd post what's going on in my life to see if anyone had some wisdom they'd be willing to share. I've had Dean's last 2 books for about 6 months and am just about finished with his newest. Each time I read them, I'm encouraged to put it into practice and then life throws me a major curve ball.
As it is, I have now been laid off from my day job twice in 6 months and have yet to make any headway on real estate investing during that time. I am a student in the Success Academy (at least I think it is - the one that is connected to PMI's online lessons) but evidently haven't figured out how to use their knowledge for my benefit. (Any success stories or thoughts would be helpful here!)
Also, since all of my cash and savings has been wiped out or earmarked for home/food, I'm looking at assigning properties or finding good lease options/sandwich deals. Unfortunately, I seem to be looking everywhere and getting no where, which is leading to frustration for both me and my wife.
Going back to square one, for those of you for whom these skills or who have had success in Oregon, what are your recommended steps to conquering either assignments or lease options?
Thanks in advance. Trying to stay positive!
