I never had a personal experience in real estate investing although my parents owned some commercial properties for lease back home in the Philippines (and doing great). I became very interested in real estate when one Saturday morning of November '08 while doing my exercise I saw Dean doing his infomercial. Got hooked up that I stopped stationary bicycling and just listened to what Dean was saying. I was magnetized with his persona and convinced to buy his book. Read his book but not really putting much effort to take action. It was only this summer '09 that I realized I can no longer be working pay check to pay check. I need to do something and pursue my dreams to financial independence. That's how I got back on track again to real estate investing. I bought the EDGE kit and feeling excited. My goal is to make at least one deal before 2009 ends and to attend the next Dean Graziosi's Live Event next year.
