working diligently to contract more big names like Lou Brown and Robyn Thompson so as to provide a greater
diversification of expertise for all levels of investors. Know this that the greater amount of attendees at our
monthly meetings the greater the names of the speakers that Nancy can bring to speak. For instance to bring
in a name like Ron LeGrand one of the undisputed masters of the industry we would have to guarantee a
minimum of 300 people in order for him to even consider attending. Though not every product that these
guru's sell may be for everyone and I am a firm believer in buy only one, master it and as your needs change or
your business grows consider others. As was the case with Mitch Stephens who most would say would not need
to buy any courses ended up purchasing Lou Brown's course. As Mitch said, "this guys got stuff that I haven't
seen before" at his level that says a lot about the need for ongoing education. A bit of information that you may
not know about our agreements with these speakers is that they are required to provide 90% education and only
10% of their presentation can be a sales pitch. So if your busy mastering a course that you already own or still
looking for the one that strikes the right cord attending the general monthly meeting will allow repeated
exposure to the information that the speakers are required to provide. Assuming they were speaking for 100
minutes you get 90 minutes of information without investing a dime just your time once a month. And that
one free bit of advice or technique could result in a major transition in your real estate investing endeavors or
even be the solution to a current roadblock. One last thing and then I am off to go find an ugly house or
multiunit somewhere; my deepest gratitude goes out to all of the volunteers, your help during these events his
