Ok, guys.  I know you’re not supposed to mix messages here, but the truth is this blog post has 3 distinct purposes:

1) To update you on the status of Bob Norton’s “Wholetaling” training.

2) To announce a special, private interview coming up this Sunday night (and invite you to eavesdrop if you want)

3) To share five specific tips on how to effectively manage the due-diligence process of analyzing a real estate product, without being blindsided or feeling overwhelmed.

First, A Video From My Heart (And My Messy, Messy Desk)…

Coming Next Week: “The Beans” on Bob Norton’s “Wholetaling” Training…

(Bob "Nada-Guru" Norton)Please watch the video above for the full scoop.

But in a nutshell, amid the buzz from our 2 free training sessions recently with Bob, we’ve been asking for your feedback on whether or not Bob should open up some in-depth training walking through his current “Secret Profits” model.

You spoke, we listened.  We’ve got a green light, and details will come out next week.

One hint. Codename: “Kiss Flipping”  🙂

Coming Sunday, Jan 25: Private, Unscripted Interview with Than Merrill

(Than Merrill)Again, please watch the video above. It’s all there.

But I’ll say, don’t expect anything for sale at the end of this call.  In fact it’ll only be roughly half an hour or so, and the whole purpose is for me to spend a few minutes grilling him about WholesalingU. As a wholesaler myself, I just want to get an honest-engine, Reader’s Digest look at it before he opens it up.

Think of it like “Reality T.V.” but on the phone.

If you want to eavesdrop in on us Sunday night (and maybe squeeze in a question or two of your own) please go here and you’ll find everything you need.

How to Swim Through a Tsunami of Information…

Is it just me, or does it seem like there’s a new info product (or three) being released every day or two in the real estate investing arena?

Let’s see, at the moment we’ve got WholesalingU and Gerald’s Ultimate R.E. System 2.0 Software

(creepy REI guru)…..And then word on the street is there’s at least SIX MORE REI products on the horizon in the next couple of months alone. Yowzers!  Can you spell I-N-F-O…O-V-E-R-L-O-A-D!

Ok, look.  I’m not trying to insult anyone here.  In fact, I happen to know some of these products are very, very good.

And heck, we all know the value of a good education, and the tangible difference the right information can make in accelerating your business and your bottom line.

But I also know first hand how ridiculously frustrating and downright overwhelming it can be to try and sort through the tsunami of “opportunities” that fill our inboxes each day…

…all in hopes of finding the BEST place possible to invest my hard-earned education dollars.

Having navigated those waters myself a number of times over the last 9 years or so, I offer you five specific questions I think you should ALWAYS ask yourself before you click the “buy” button on any educational product.

But to find out what they are…you guessed it…you’ll have to watch the video above.  🙂

Hope you guys find this helpful.  As always, your comments are welcome.
