Heres a "Litmus Test" I plug in ,and apply before I consider buying any REI course or coaching program
01. Call the Guy,,,,,Yeah.Is he "not busy enough" to take your call or even return it? Thats the key really,,Is The Guy Accessable,,,or is there "A Firewall" between you and him...even after you give "The Guy " what he wants,,,,i.e.,,,,"Your Money",,,,
02. Call the Guy Again ,,,at this point you might get ,,,"The Gatekeeper " on the phone,,,,Great!!!!
How does "THe Gatekeeper" treat you on the telephone,are the helpful, courteous,responsive,,,,,?
Or are they ,,,,arrogant,contrary,indifferent,"catty",rude,surly,,,or do you get the feeling they just want to get your off the phone go to lunch,,,,,
03 Make a conclusion ,,,,
Guess what guys ,,,the way "THe Gatekeeper" treats you on the telephone is very likely the way "The Coach" is gonna treat you,if your lucky enough to talk to him at all
Since "The Gatekkeeper" is also "The Coaches Employee ,Liason and Representative" their attitude and conduct is a good indication of the quality of their product and services they render
04 If you get bad vibes on the telephone ,,,put that debit card back in your wallet Charlie Brown ,,,,get off the phone,,,and Run Forrest Run,,,,!!!!back to Grandmas house!!!
Seriously ,,take your time and do your research before investing in any course or program.If enough people are saying the same thing repeatly about any individual,,,you must take note of it.There are plenty of good products and programs out there if you are vigorous and thorough in your due diligence.
And yes,,,Bigger Pockets is a tremedous resource if you take the time to read the posts relative to your interest.I am amazed what I have learned here,,,,,Thank You BP,,,
