I’d just like to say a few words about the CREO convention coming-up in Dallas (see the banner at the top of the page). I am in no way affiliated with CREonline. But I’m a huge fan.
There comes a time when some of us realize we’ve talked and dreamed about improving our financial positions in life and never really put out any real effort to do so. That time came for me about a year and a half ago, when I first sent away for the Sheets course. Then I happened to be surfing the web, and came across this site.
I made a promise to myself that this time I would NOT allow excuse after excuse to keep me from what I knew was best for my family and me. NO ONE ELSE would do it for me. It was time to put my foot down and reject the typical rationalizations keeping me from the Real Estate success I knew I could achieve. So, after reading and researching this site for a few months, I happened upon the announcement for the first annual CREO convention.
At that time I knew in my heart that this would not be a dog and pony show, simply from the high degree of integrity and factual assistance given on this site. So, I made the decision to spend the money to get to the convention. This was one of the best (and most proactive) decisions I have ever made to get myself closer to financial independence.
I have to tell you at the risk of sounding a little flaky, that when I returned from the convenion I was so excited and invigorated that I could scarcely sleep for days. I was introduced to a whole world that I had no idea existed. Successful experts gave me (and those in attendance) information that was worth several times the small cost of the convention. I have to say, if I had relied on the Sheets course and my own good intentions, I seriously doubt I would have completed any of the deals I have to date. And I still consider myself a newbie. The convention was “life changing” for me.
This is getting long, so I want to sum it up. If you are serious about real estate investing, you owe it to yourself to jump-start your efforts by attending the CREO convention in Dallas. You will be very happy that you did.
