I got into investing in houses a few years ago when my third son came along. I read everything I could on the subject and spent a lot of money on courses and such. Some of the info. good, some not so good.
I am a college grad, business and finance, I underwrite mortgage loans for a "real" job. I never got into this to get rich. I make out OK, we do without compared to most, but I am at home every night to have dinner around the table with my kids and tuck them into bed. That was the goal with the houses, and so my wife could stay home. Anyway, I came across some of your info. on a site a few years back and it blew me away. I remember reading it and thinking WOW, as I read it three more times. You can't do what you do in the "real" banking world. At least not in the starched collar mortgage environment I work in. I wasn't ready to jump in then, but I thought when I was, your info. was what I wanted.
Like one of the other posters said, It's too bad a few had to ruin it for those of us who really value what you have to say. There is so much garbage peddled out here now, it's confusing and it takes the fun out of doing it. Buying houses is fun. Buying a course that's full of crap is not. I am the type of person that wants to know all I can about a subject, while working it. I do not want to buy a million courses however to learn all the aspects of that topic. I bought three houses before I bought my first course.
I guess I can do the note business the same way.
Anyway, thanks for the reply and you do what you need to for your sanity and your family. Losing any of that is not worth it for a bunch of people that don't even appreciate you.
