What's going on BP! So I listened to the Lance Wakefield podcast yesterday and I mean it is truly inspiring. If you have listened to it you know what I am talking about and if you haven't I think you should check it out.
Now, I have literally done just about everything I have read and heard when it comes to starting out. Calling bandit signs, stopping at job sites, social meadia messaging, craigslist ads, offer wholesalers to drive to locations to take pictures, stop by current flips and say "if you ever need a hand doing some work let me know." etc... You name it! If I have read it or heard of it working for someone else I have tried it. I have even gone as far to find a deal, negotiate and bring another local wholesaler into the deal with me so I can learn the process and that person even bailed on me.
Basically what I am saying is if someone said they tried it and it worked, then I tried it as well. I drive for dollars (due to budgets), cold call FSBO, I attend CFRI and events like that. I am a hands on learning, there is only so much I can do with knowledge from books, podcasts and forums. That is why I stop by job sites and try to reach out to local individuals because I like tangible things.
Everytime I think about throwing the towel in I hear another story, like Lance's, that inspires me to continue the process because I truly do believe in it. I know all it could take is that 1 deal to net a good amount of cash or meeting the right person to take me under their wing, to then really hit the ground running.
I am Ex Military and a family man and those 2 things alone keep me striving to do better. I'm not really asking for anything but more or less reaching out to the BP family to get any additional advice or a different view point on things. I am in the Orlando, FL area as well if that helps.
Thanks again BP for keeping the spirit alive!
