My name is Viki and I am married to my high school sweetheart Tom. I am a CPA and come from the corporate world. I was looking for a way to generate income to replace my job so I wouldn't need to rely on anyone for money. The crash in 2008 taught me not to rely on others since the company I worked for went through a dramatic downsizing eliminating over 200 positions, mine included. Job security is a myth.
I always knew real estate was the fastest way to build wealth, but I was scared having been burned on a deal before. I went to several of those "guru" seminars to learn more and to me it was just a lot of hype and sales pitch. They never gave you the "how to" just the "buy now". I kept looking and one day Tom stumbled upon an opportunity.
We were invited down to meet a man who with several others were running a local community of investors. After our brief introductory meeting we were invited to come back to an event where we could meet local investors and be introduced to the real estate investing education they offered. We were excited. Finally there was credible education with a local community of support and mentoring to learn how to invest in all phases of real estate. There are over 50 1-2 day classes offered as part of the real estate investing education.
As you continue to read, if you are looking for the right opportunity for you, maybe our story resonates with you. Have considered getting involved in real estate investing but not sure where to start? Or have you attended those Guru Seminars and came away with nothing, or spent money on their courses yet never did a real estate deal?
