The Carlton Sheets program may not be a bad investment. While I admit that the nearly $200 you paid Carlton vs the $30-$60 Lonnie charges makes Carlton look like a crook, you will find the $200 is not alot of money in the RE investment books arena. I know others who have paid several thousand dollars for a course and they felt it was well worth it. I believe you can get your moneys worth with Carlton Sheets.
And I think Lonnie is an awesome person for passing on his knowledge at such a reasonable price. My opinion is that he would like to see people succeed that are willing to put the effort into making their life financially better. He is “paying it forward”, sort of like the movie. And I also think that is one of the reasons this is such a great forum. The theory of passing on knowledge and not expecting too much (or anything) in return has become contageous. Thanks Lonnie!!!
Carlton gives a basic overall understanding of REI. If you are a beginner, you will learn something from his series. I would love to be on his informercial some day, lol. That said, I personally do not recommend getting any additional materials from Carlton. I have not found the 4 additional books/courses I bought to be a significant addition/improvement on the original. Just my opinion.
