Thanks for the clarification John I must have missed that part in the ad that it was ONLY for people already making money!

Hi Ed! When will you have a workshop in the Phoenix area?

Hi Jammy,

I’m a recent alumni of the workshop and I highly recommend it. For me the cost hurt a bit, because I’m a relatively small investor. However, in my opinion the cost is somewhat irrelevant. If you’re planning a carrer on being a full-time investor I feel the seminar is a must. They say knowledge is power and you’re surrounded by saavy and seasoned professionals that you can learn and network with. Not to mention having Ed and Terry’s ear for the next few months.

Even if you never follow up with Ed or Terry, I bet you probably will learn enough to save a point on your next loan. That will pay for the seminar…

As an alumni of the workshop who has attended in two locations I am not sure that it really matters where it is.

The program is geared for experienced investors. Terry & Ed screen the attendees to make sure that only people with a certain minimum experience attend (they do decline some people who have the money but not the experience). Hence the program is normally attended by folks who can afford to make the trip. Even when someone is local a fair number stay at hotel unless they are really close by. Networking early in the morning and late into the evening are part of the value of the event. As some of that is done in the bar a few members are better off for not having to drive.

So, if cost is the issue then try to get an extra deal done and hard to the next one even if it is not in Phoenix. If you need to take a vacation day or two to attend then I speculate that it could be very well worth investing the 1-2 days of vacation.

Definitely understand that a large part of the value comes from the 6 months of coaching after the weekend event so most of the time the distance is not a factor.
