Actively Seeking Out Mentor( Paradise/ Portola, CA )

I have ordered Dean's book online( How to be a Real Estate Millionaire ) through a friend back in June prior to the big fires we had up here. I've already read the book three times and am currently reading it a fourth to reinforce the life-changing key concepts Dean uses.

Currently, I am employed as a carpet cleaner/ janitorial maintenance cleaner with a local stable family-owned cleaning firm in Paradise. Since my vehicle( 1990 Toyota 4-Runner ) blew two heads this past May, I've been without any transportation to assist my family's needs as they are presently shouldered by my wife( a role I'd love to have yesterday ). It's no fun having to pay for insurance and registration on my feet along with a vehicle that does not run and expected to have repaired sometime ago. The private mechanic I have trusted to perform the job is slow on the draw as I could not afford my primary mechanic's services at the time. to top off the elevated stress levels between my wife and I, she will be starting a job close to home this week using her vehicle while leaving me high and dry without a ride to work and take care of family-oriented responsibilities. I don't know about y'all, but I see that something has to change right away at yesterday's pace.

After reading Dean's book, I have rediscovered my dreams while working hard to improve my credit status with my meager earnings. I'm not looking to get-rich-quick to miraculously buy a brand new vehicle off of the lot only to take the hit the moment I drive it off of the lot, though downsizing has seriously crossed my mind several times in the past three months. I just need to meet my family's needs while actually transferring the present skills I have gained over the years into an investing career.

Thank you for taking out the time from your busy day to read my post.

Hi Don,

Welcome to the DG family. It is good to have you here.
Congratulations on rediscovering your dreams. Smiling I have no doubt that you will turn them into reality as you pursue your future in REI!

God bless,


Location isn't that important

And why limit yourself to one mentor? I consider all here my mentors. I learn from even the newbies especially when the pros chime in on their questions. I've also recently found that real estate is real estate no matter the location. I live in southern CA and am in the process of buying a house to rehab in North Dakota of all places. You can see my "Offer Accepted" on the home page here.

I wish you the best. I know you will do great. And I admire you for deciding to pick yourself up from where you are to attain your dreams.


Years later, how'd it go?

Perusing random postings in the forum, I was drawn to this and wanted to know how you are doing today?
