I consider one of the best ways to be taught the enterprise of actual property investing is to listen to how others have achieved it. When these interviews have been recorded, I requested the interviewer to ask questions that will assist the viewer see how these of us received began.
I wished to listen to the struggles, the successes and a transparent path and clarification of what they needed to do to make these offers occur. I did NOT need them to be a bunch of individuals telling you ways great Joe Crump was. I wished content material, examples and actual life experiences.
I hope we succeeded.
