Yesterday I got a chance to actually go to an REIA meeting. It was the first one I’ve been to all summer, and I’m not exactly sure why. It was good, but it reminded me that the reason why you should go is not for the pitch fests but to network with the other investors. From my experience there aren’t a lot of successful investors at these meetings, mostly people just starting out. The real investors usually show up at the subgroup meetings, which have been on hiatus all summer because they are relocating there offices.
The first presentation was this young guy who was trying to pitch his seminar. It was an hour long and he could not have been more generic with his information and all his stupid catch phrases…oyie!!! “POWER THINKING”….give me a break! I seriously hope nobody bought into his shpeal. He was asking $900 (for two people to attend), but that was discounted from the 3000 bucks he normally offers it for. Anyhow, I shouldn’t complain to much as at least he is trying.
The other “presentation” was from Realsource, which sounded good but brings me to the main point of this post…
When did I start thinking everyone who is trying to pitch me a product is trying to scam me?
…I mean, if they are selling something, I think they are trying to scam me. I never use to be like this, but now I can’t help myself. The first thing that pops into my head is, “What’s the catch?” Is this normal, or have I been reading about to many GURU programs or foreclosure scams that take advantage of people?
Who knows, but I guess it’s because I’ve read so much on the great forums I visit and Steve Cooks course that I know most of what these guys are going to teach. Maybe my head is just to big! possible
