22+ year veteran in the Corporate Rat Race. I am done with trying to convince people how smart and capable I am. I decided to take matter into my own hands.
This summer I finally graduated with a Business Degree (Summa Cum Laude). I have also been getting educated in real estate and other matters using resources like Dean's books and websites.
A month ago my husband and I bought our first real estate investment (after seeing dozens of homes and making 6 failed offers. In 25 days we bought the property, fixed it (mostly touch ups) and rented for a cashflow of over $400. We closed on our second property about 10 days ago and we are making a plan for this one because it needs more work but it is in a better golf-swim-tennis community. Truly the ugliest house on the block. We expect to have a better cash flow than the first one.
It is SO exiting to put in action what we have been learning and I can't wait to rent this one and move to the next one.
Thank you Dean for your passion and enthusiasm. It is truly contagious.
I listened to your taped conf call from 10/1 and made me want to quit my job and dedicate myself to real estate full time. I know...it is not smart. I won't do it, but I do have the goal to be Financially FREE by my birthday of 2011 (Dec). That means that I have 2 years to make it happen. I make it happen I will.
