Sounds good I can't wait.

You will receive what I promise as always

Ask Nate or Nick I always do as I say...ALWAYS.

I do not need it I am just offering to help as I always do. To give the opinion of a true professional unbiased and not concerned with what folks think.

Some may find that type of honesty PRICELESS. Some may not. Just offering to help as always.

Will this be an open review for all to read?

Bob,

I do not have the cash to flip. I believe the only safe way is to do it without going into debt.

Damn Dave Ramsey..... Got me thinking correctly I believe.

If I had the cash to do it outright without borrowing I would be doing it now.

Thanks for commenting on it Mike.

312 pages. Lots of info.

We've already sold more than 1/2 of them, so we'll likely put out a new edition the first of the year. If we use any of your tips, we'll include you as a contributor inside the front cover.

I must say the title really got me wanting to start reading last night. The part to get really, really rich sure grabs ones attention. I could not sleep anyway and I figured all the ideas would really keep my mind racing. I did start this morning and it is a going well. I'll be consulting in Orlando for a couple of days this upcoming week and likely get in a bunch of reading time after hours as I'll be all alone.

It's a big book. Maybe too big.

Well just a little update for you all so you know I am keeping my word. I am about to page 100. Not to bad for a guy with very limited free time.

So far I must say:

If you are thinking about being an inspector..........BUY THIS BOOK.
If your are an inspector....................................... buy this book

I wish I had read it before I did everything I have done in the business so far.

Those who come from other careers likely do not have any idea as I did not of THE RIGHT WAY to do things. So far I do not think I disagree with anything I have read.

It explains things that some people think they know but may have it just a little off. If you take the time to read everything even though you think you know all about whatever the section is about I bet you learn something new or find out you could have done something different and more importantly better.

Reading this book as step one of becoming an inspector would benefit anyone who does greatly. Why reinvent the wheel. The info in the book is tried and true. Learn from the experiences of thousands instead of trying to do it all from your own mind.

I especially wish I had known all I learned in the web page sections BEFORE I made even my advertisement wind mit special page.

If I continue in this business I will definitely eventually redo all my sites using most of what Nick talks about. I do OK with my websites but I learned it all on my own through trial and error and that cost time and money.

Thats all for today as I am in my child's Aikido Halloween class. Time to put down the computer and pick up a book. I can tell you that does not happen here often with free internet access. Anyone want to guess what book it will be?

The book is a very easy read in good big clear print and you end up wanting to read when you get the chance just to find out what the next pages will hold.
