I have the course and maybe another course owner who probably has a little more experience and would like to partner up and utilize this system together. I don't have a problem with sharing the profits, just want someone with experience who may can help!

Thanks,

Ta'Quila

GREAT! Have you closed a deal with it yet? I don't want to get a house out of state and can't move it (like tied up with a bank) Im comfortable with private sellers, Larry's not purchasing notes in Michigan... so I would like to work with someone who actually lives in another area. LIKE YOU! Email me please

Ta'Quila,

Let get started! I have sent you a detailed e-mail reply, outlining my plans and my desire to work with you. I look forward to a long and profitable relationship. How to you feel about the state of Florida and Texas for possible out of state investments? I also know where we can obtain free signs for the properties. Please e-mail me.

Hello Regina, Ta'Quila, all,

I am looking for someone that is experienced with the Filthy Riches system to work with. I have access to some houses that would fit this mold, that I would buy in blocks of 50 to sell. I would finance the houses, and would like to find a partner to sell them at a % of profit spread. There would be no out of pocket expenses for the partner.

If interested, please email me

Look forward to hearing from you.

If you have thoughts about this course or experiences with it, Craig, please post them here to share with all. In particular, I'm sure all members would appreciate hearing about how this course helped you do more deals and make more money.

Just curious, has anyone in their life ever seen or read a respected news source that featured or interviewed a wealthy person who said that the way they made their money was they bought a real estate course from a guru?

Great point Eric - they make it sound so easy then after closing their deals leave the students floundering like fish out of water. I received a few emails from the guy and after reading them sent them to the junk files.

No.

Absolutely I have! You will find that there are MANY people who have started this way and in fact Larry Goins bought his from Ron Legrand off the T.V. if I remember. However, they definately are not all the same and you must be selective. I agree that some do leave people floundering. If you REALLY want some good guidance visit the Equity Trust Company website. They specialize in administering IRAs and 401Ks for people that invest in everything from Wholesale - Shortsale - Rehabs - Tax Liens - Ect...

I have had my hands on Larry's course before and I think that it is probably one of the better ones out there. Like ALL of the guru courses you adopt some of the materials for your use and abandon some. His had a lot of content instead of *fluff* which I sure appreciate. I learned a few ideas from him and would recommend his materials to someone who is new to investing.

As far as knowing anyone who has been successful using guru stuff ... I have known dozens who are successful and started with a course. It almost always develops, integrating their own style and personality into their investment business but non the less they started with a course. That said I know hundreds of people who have purchased multiple courses and have never bought a thing. Sad really. At some point you have to have the guts to jump off that cliff and do it, most sadly are bound by fear. No real estate course I have found can change the moxie of a person.

Hope this helps.

Ok, cite the legit media outlet source if you have seen it.
One guru who bought a course and decided to create his own course and become a guru doesn't even come close to counting.
I am talking a real legit media profile of a person who got rich by following a RE course he/she bought..

Hi Larry,

I see you will be in Philadelphia at the Pyramid Club in Oct. I'll try to make it. I don't know a single thing about your course but I like hearing different ideas and success stories.

All the best

The most useful information I have used towards running a real estate business is the bachelors degree I received from a 4 year accredited university. If you do not have that, then networking at a local REIA meeting with the right people and to steal a line from Nike--"Just do It" is a cheap way to get started.

I agree 100%. Not so much that you have to have a degree but really it comes down to taking action. At this point I am doing networking events, reading, setting up my business and continuing to build capital. However, I know that if I don't pull the trigger at some point it may be all for naught.

Good luck to all

I have a book by Larry Goins sitting on my night stand, so I clicked on Larry's picture to look at profile here at bp, and I want to ask why is it that under completed deals it says : zero.
I don't mind following advise from authors, gurus, pros, but I want that person to have done it successfully before.
