I’d agree with Jon’s comments about the one course being focused on brokering and the other on investing. I’d guess they were complimentary, but I haven’t listened to Jon’s course yet. I picked up a copy to review, but have been a little too pre-occupied with other things. I’ll move it up on the priority list, but all I have ever heard about Jon Richards or his course has been positive. Jon’s course is the beginner course I recommend. My video course does start from the basics, but after 5 days moves into some pretty intense techniques, etc. When I review it, it seems to hit the basics well and was taught to a totally beginner group. Some feedback I receive indicates it may be a little too advanced for a beginner, but maybe some others could comment, because I can’t compare the two.
As to the brokering and investing questions, my course is more directed to investing. I cover brokering a little, but with a veryt strong emphasis on quickly moving towards developing your own financing, being creative in buying, fixing, restructuring notes others won’r buy and generally working the “nooks and crannies” of the market. It can be extremely profitable.
As to the current note world? The competition in brokering notes is intense. The infomercial gurus still churn out students by the hundreds each month. The good news is they have a Kindergarten level education with notes and a good course like Jon’s or another would give you an immediate edge.
Yet, there is so much competition, that it would be good strategy and possible to just begin buying notes yourself right from the start. Basically, the best analogy is that brokering notes is a heavily competitive, but potentially well paying sales job. Investing in notes is an investment that can pay you up front, create a monthly income and retirement all in one. It’s like being a real estate agent and making a commission versus buying real estate, putting the same amount of commission money in your pocket up front and having either a monthly cash flow or retirement income on top of it. In addition, when you have notes in your portfolio, there are over a hundred ways to make greater profits with them by being creative.
Hope that helps.
