But There's Still Something Crucial Missing, And I Know What it is.
My name is Vena Jones-Cox, and I've been buying, selling, financing, and renting properties for over 20 years.
I've made money in up markets and down markets; buyer's markets and seller's markets; markets where getting financing was as easy as fogging a mirror and as hard as scaling Mt. Everest without a Sherpa.
I've also been teaching real estate entrepreneurs to create and build profitable businesses for over a decade through non-profit real estate investor associations and my own seminars and courses.
It's because of all this personal and teaching experience that I know exactly what it is that's stopping you from creating complete and total financial independence:
You Don't Have the Support You Need to Make "Rich" Happen for You!
I amazed at the number of budding and even experienced real estate entrepreneurs I meet that believe that every successful investor around them is a self-made millionaire.
I've never actually met a "self-made" millionaire.
I know I'm not one.
If I had had to "go it alone", I would never, ever have found the courage to make my first offer...
...much less the resources to finance it, get it fixed, or get that first big check in my pocket.
See, here's the big secret EVERY real estate guru, group leader, and millionaire knows, but no one talks about:
Education is Crucial to Real Estate Success
But it's Not Enough. Ever. For Anyone.
To make money in the real estate business, you HAVE to learn your craft.
It's soooooooo easy to make big mistakes when you're reinventing the wheel - in fact, my guess is that 99% of budding real estate entrepreneurs who try to "learn by doing", without so much as a homestudy course to guide them, lose money on their first few deals.
So yes, you've done the right thing by socking away all that information in your brain.
But although there are some awesome manuals, CDs, and seminars out there (and some really bad ones, too), the fact is that:
No matter how thoroughly you've been educated,
No matter how obsessively detailed the instruction,
And no matter how smart or determined YOU are
You simply can't succeed without ongoing support, encouragement, and study.
I've seen it over and over again...
You attend a workshop or read a book.
You get it. You understand what you're supposed to do and how to do it.
You go out in the world to do it...
And you get completely STUCK.
You can't actually "do" the deal, because you have questions that your education didn't - in fact, COULDN'T - answer.
Have I evaluated this particular deal right?
Have I thought through all the pros and cons of this particular property?
What does this weird clause in my agent's contract mean?
Is this crack in the foundation a big deal, or just normal settlement?
The seller just asked me why I can't get my own financing - what the heck do I say?
The buyer wants to pay my wholesale fee in 6 months - what do I do?
And you know what ends up happening? You either:
• Don't make the offer at all, because you're afraid of making a mistake or
• Make the wrong offer, because you weren't able to evaluate ALL of the pros, cons, ins, and outs of the deal right up front.
You Need Expert Support to Do Deals, Period.
Ask yourself this:
"How much more successful would I ALREADY be if I'd had an expert - preferably a 6' tall redhead with 25 years' experience - that I could call on to help me evaluate deals, weigh out the pros and cons of strategies, and kick my butt when I needed it?"
If you're being honest with yourself, I bet your answer is, "A WHOLE lot more successful."
I've watched literally thousands of new real estate investors succeed and fail - and I can tell you that for those who actually make it in thus business, this kind of expert assistance is absolutely crucial.
In fact, I had a mentor when I was starting out in real estate and at every stage since. That's the God's honest truth, and if I hadn't had this help, I don't know how I would have done the 600+ deals that I have in my career.
I was just as scared and confused as you are at every step of the way - from making my first offer to wholesaling my first deal - and without the coaching of my various mentors, I'd probably have given up and become a corporate drone.
