I was thinking of purchasing Carlton Sheet’s “Women in REI” Course. Has anyone used it?

The info came with my original purchase. I never gave it much thought. I am working on rehabs and seem to be getting some mixed comments like “women shouldn’t work with contractors”, & “Why don’t you have your husband call me.” Also a little concerned about “image” when asking for money. On the phone I’m great, but in person I’m not sure if I need to look like I can handle the work or if I should have that “polished” business image.

I grabbed this from Carlton’s website.

hi linda i have one ? for you. are you doing well w/carletons course now? i mean have you purchased any r.e. due to his course? if so then go for it, but if you havent succ. w/his course yet then why throw more money into it?
if you have done well w/his course could u answer this…? did you have good credit and or money to use *your own) also how much are the homes that you are buying? i live in NYC and the homes are over 250k and i have no credit actually i have very bad credit and no money to play with and no family to borrow from. i have found a house in my area that seems to be totally run down it is very out of place its horrible but i dont know how to approach the situation. or what to say, i have had sheets course for ovr ayear, but i have to reread it as i dont remember much.

I read sheets course cover to cover (twice) I bought the professional invesotors series and read every word of those twice too. I started following his week by week instructions, but soon found my own path. The course gave me a very solid “base” I understand the terminology now and I never would have gotten started without it. That said, Maybe I’ll cough up the 40 bucks & order the course.

I have decent credit. I don’t buy in “my” neighborhood. I found a financially run down neighborhood about 1/2 hour away. Maybe in NY you have to drive further, but I would try to find a MUCH lower cost area. It will be hard trying to start on $250,000 houses. I used hard money, so credit wasn’t an issue.
