"In The Beginning".....

Journal Entry: "In the beginning".... 1/18/2011

I ordered Deans' books last Tuesday, (1/11/11) and they have yet to arrive. I am so anxious, it has me pacing the floor.
As a catalyst for comfort, I've decided to pick apart this site to obtain all the information i can. I am starving for knowledge and am more motivated than ever.
Just to provide a little background on me, and my situation, the following jargon is a bases for what i hope others will have to compare their current status to.
I was unemployed from Feb.2008 to Aug. 2010, went through a divorce, lost my house, my kids, my car, MY LIFE! Don't get me wrong, although I should be, I am NOT bitter, I am DRIVEN!
Over the curse of the last 2.5 years i have spent literally every penny on scams and infomercials that have yielded NOTHING! I have watched Dean many times during that period but was always skeptical.
Real Estate has always presented itself as a viable means of securing a future, but i have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that you can obtain property for basically nothing,(money wise, i realize it takes HARD work and am willing to do just that).I know that it DOES happen.I understand the principals, i just can't seem to make it happen.
I'm hoping that it's just the fact that I have always over thought the process, and that Deans' books and my newly adopted family will take me by the hand and show me the way.
I now have a good job, but something is missing. The constant fear of what tomorrow could bring, layoffs, economic strife and again being faced with nothing, lends a NEW desire to open my mind.
I have already found 5 properties here in my area, (N.E. Ohio) that are available 30-60% below market value. Some of them require a bit of work, but i am WELL versed in the home rehab/remodel department as well as the construction trades. I have been building and rehabbing properties (residential as well as commercial) for others, for over 20 years.
Therefore, i am creating this journal to serve as a proclamation of "TAKING ACTION!"
