When John and I joined the program, it was a very stressful time for us. The business we had for 25 years was struggling, and I was unhappy at my job, (which was in jeopardy due to impending mergers). Our son was in college, and our daughter was less than two years away from starting college. We were deep in debt.
John started buying books about real estate investing and was sure that this is what he wanted to do. He read several, and felt he was ready. I was very skeptical. Everyone said it was a bad time to get into real estate. I was also concerned, thinking it was too much of a risk. The first couple of deals did not turn out very well. He was discouraged, but not willing to give up.
John saw Dean’s infomercial late one night, and bought his book. He immediately knew that this book, (and the author) was different. Not only did it offer better tools and ideas, it left him motivated and EXCITED about real estate. He then joined the coaching program and things took off! I ended up leaving my job a little over a year later. We are now working together as full time real estate investors.
