Lonnie Scruggs has generously offered to teach a full-day
“Money-Making” Workshop on the day before the Convention,
Thursday, March 29th.

ALL proceeds from this workshop will go to the charitable
“Make-A-Wish Foundation.” In the charitable spirit of the
occasion, the Atlanta Marriott has offered to give us the
meeting space for free.

Attend this workshop and learn how to create financial
security and financial freedom for yourself and loved ones.

I’ll let Lonnie explain…


Hi Folks,

On Thursday March 29th, (the day before the CRE Convention),
I’ll be doing a workshop on how to make money. It will be
at the Airport Marriott Hotel (same as the convention)
from 9AM-5PM. While this workshop will be geared to newbies
and/or folks with limited knowledge of the investing world,
it’s my hope that we will also have some of you experienced
investors who will be willing to share your knowledge and
experiences with the class, and offer some tips and money
making techniques which have made you successful.

The primary purpose of this workshop will be to learn and
teach various unconventional techniques and strategies which
will enable you to make money without working a “job.” And
my goal will be to eliminate that “good education, good job,
good benefits” mentality that the schools teach you.

This will be an informal workshop, geared primarily to newbies,
and/or folks who want to learn what they don’t teach in school.
We’ll spend the day discussing various ways, strategies and
techniques that you can use to create passive cash flow, and
how to create financial security and financial freedom for
yourself. You will learn how to stop working for money, and
learn how to make money work for you.

We’ll discuss topics such as:

  • Using the calculator for fun and profit

  • Time value of money

  • Financing your way to wealth

  • Power of compounding of interest

  • How to create, buy, sell, & trade notes

  • Buying and selling parts of notes

  • How to pay full price for a note & still make high yields

  • How to make hard money loans and earn 40-50% yields

  • How to buy dollars for 50 cents each

  • How to get out of debt

  • How to buy your own mortgage and make 20-30% yield

  • And whatever else you want to talk about…

The cost for this full-day Workshop is $67.23, and ALL
proceeds will go to “Make A Wish Foundation”. And JP has
even gotten the hotel to agree to furnish us with the
meeting room at no charge.

There will no work books, no coffee, no doughnuts and no
frills. You will need to bring your own pad, pencil and
calculator. No coat and ties allowed.

This will be a casual, hands on “working” workshop where
you will have the chance to learn how to make money,
without working a “job”. An informal workshop where you
can ask questions, present your deals/ideas etc. And if
you don’t get enough lessons by the end of the day, we’ll
have our own “round table” in the lounge in the evening.

So plan on coming to the convention a day early and
let’s get together.


You will need to make your own hotel reservation for
Wednesday night, and Jeanne will tell you how to do that
in your Convention Confirmation Letter. The rate is $87
per night. But be sure you mention that you will be
attending the CRE Online Convention to get that negotiated
low rate.

By the way, JP tells me that reservations for the convention
are running way ahead of last year. So if you plan to attend,
make your reservation now.

Folks, I’m excited, and I’m and looking forward to seeing
you at both the workshop, and the convention. You have a
great opportunity to learn what you never learned in school.
Don’t pass it up. Make your commitment and your reservations NOW!

To make your reservation for this Pre-Convention Workshop,
you need to call Jeanne at 888-901-4111 (Mon - Fri between
8AM and 4PM PST). If you can’t get Jeanne, you can call me at
757-436-2197 (Eastern Time).

I leave you with these thoughts…

If you don’t understand how to make money work for you, you
will spend the rest of your life working for people who do.
And, if you do the same things this year as you did last year,
where will you be next year? Remember, when you do nothing,
you’ve made a decision to stay where you are. Is that where
you want to be?

See you Atlanta!



Again, all proceeds from this Workshop go to the Make-A-Wish

Thanks to Lonnie’s generosity, you have the opportunity to
both advance your financial education and to help give a
terminally ill child a last wish. We sincerely hope you will
join us.


I want to remind all attendees of our 1998, 1999 and 2000
