My introduction to BP

5 Replies

Hello Everyone,

My name is Evelyn and I've recently heard about wholesaling through the fortune builders 2 hour class. We have signed up for the workshop but we don't have $25k+ to get into their mentoring program. I live in Nashville, TN but I used to live in Indiana. My husband and I have been doing a lot of reading but we would are still not sure where to start. If we can get tips that someone can give us that would be great! 

Welcome Evelyn! I think you can learn a lot more on this site than from any $25,000 workshop. So you came to the right place.

Listen to @Luka Milicevic on this. As a rookie, a 25k mentoring program will do nothing except drive up your debt.  Do the free education first, network, and get out there and try to find some deals.  Later, if you find a weakness, or you want to specialize in some niche, spend some money a course or conference that focuses on that.

Good luck, and if you get a deal wholesale it to me.
