With investing, most will find that there are hidden costs or unspoken secrets and even unmentioned failures. Having a grounded value for being prepared and educated is of most importance.
Recently, while mentoring a group of investors; I overheard an associate telling a new investor to get back with him when he has the money available to invest. This was completely wrong and misguiding. He should have told the investor to start looking for properties, hone his education and be ready for the deal before it presents itself.
One secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes. - Benjamin Disraeli
It is time that the mentors become accountable.
Far too often, investors are given substandard material and set on their way to fail. Whether it be reading a guru book on how to make millions investing in tax liens or how to buy houses with no money down, there are learning curves to be met.
