Payal Dalal | almost 4 years ago  

I'm a newbie currently in the education part of my plan. Without boring you with details, I have a history of getting into things that I know nothing about, learning as much as possible, then becoming successful based on what I've learned. This guide and this website has that ring of truth and value that I know will lead me to success in this field that I essentially know nothing about. I just want to thank BP for this space, and I also want to thank all of the people that have taken the time to write blogs and articles and post videos to help somebody like me gain the knowledge and confidence to take on my most ambitious task yet: Getting in to real estate in order to secure the financial future of my family. Thank you all so much!

Nice eBook, I've managed to download it, now the task remains upon me on reading it thoroughly as the eBook is special for beginners of whom I belongs. Thanks indeed.

Juma Manase | almost 6 years ago  

Can't download either! 😔

Phil La Mere | almost 6 years ago  

Having download issues as well. First time attempting to download and your site is telling me my limit is four per day. Help, please.

Tiffany Wesley | about 6 years ago  

Download link doesn't work...I've tried everything suggested by other posters....Looks like this is an ongoing issue for many many people. Give me access to your backend and I'll fix it in 1 minutes time. (I have found a bunch of problems within the site so maybe you should hire an IT guy)

Thank you so much for the book and the advice.

Kinaz Samour | almost 7 years ago  

Thank you so much for the advice. You saved me a lot of money by getting into some "Guru's" really expensive mentor program. There are many seasoned investors that are on this site that are willing to help newbie investors such as myself. Rather spend my money on my investments than line someone's pockets.

Stephen Richey | about 7 years ago  

Hi guys, If directly clicking on the download button doesn't work, try right clicking and saving the link, or save link as (etc). This right click action is "usually" available with most browsers. If you're still having issues post back here & I'll try to help.

Steve G. | over 7 years ago  

Download does not work with Firefox. Try IE instead as that seems to work

Chuck Away | over 7 years ago  

Your download does not work with Adobe Acrobat and your system the prevents attempting to retry the download.

Jerry Konecki | over 7 years ago
