Vicki Irvin-SET THOSE GOALS! Maryland Real Estate Investing

Thank you so much to all of you who provided me with remedies and prayers for my cold! Guess what? It worked! I feel so much better and that is GREAT because the Queen is quite busy all weekend and I can’t be slowed down. The free seminar last night was great and I was bombarded with people who were so happy they attended and obtained a wealth of knowledge that most people would never even share. I am currently teaching my next group of aspiring investors how to take their financial status to a whole new level. This weekend’s boot camp if going to be exciting, I have a good mix of newbies and some experienced investors ready to catapult their investing career to the next level! I’m on break right now!

While I am teaching my real estate investing boot camp, what will you be doing this weekend? Hopefully you will take some time to think about your goals. Getting into the habit of setting both short and long term goals is the first step to financial freedom. When you have an end in mind, and then map out a realistic plan to get there, suddenly it becomes a reality for you. When you speak about making changes in your life, but don’t write down a plan of action to get there, in reality you are just talking and blowing smoke. Things don’t happen by just speaking them, you have to REALIZE your dreams and draw up a blueprint to attain them. I had a student who came through my very first real estate investing class. Darryl and his wife own their own business and are quite successful! Darryl wrote to me and told me the goal setting work book I gave him to complete prior to even coming to boot camp, has forever changed his life. He used the principles from that work book to take his current business to the next level, not to mention to formulate his real estate investing plans and goals. He stated that there were several areas in his business that he struggled with, all because he didn’t set a proper plan of action. But that is a thing of the past now! All due to something as simple as setting goals.

So this weekend, no matter what you do, I want you to start thinking about where you want to be. All of us have the potential to do whatever we want, but we have to work at it and hold ourselves accountable. Having other positive people to support you goes a long way. Every time I get ready to make an excuse for something my husband is right there in my face giving me a million reasons why I am just making excuses. And it works, because he is right (although I hate to admit it). It’s human nature to make excuses, but it is also crippling to our success. Don’t have anyone to help hold you accountable? I’ll do it! I am dedicated to your success, so always feel free to post to my blog or send me a private email. I will be here to pick you up when you are feeling down. Let’s support each other!

Thanks for this information; it is so, so true.

At the meeting on last night, the gentleman gave a wealth of information, but one of the things that I took away with me was the 5-year goal setting plan.
I thought I had one, but somewhere in the middle of life, I lost site of it, due to all the other issues life brings, and pulls you off course. So I have vowed to re-set my goals, and make them a priority, so I can dream again, because some where in the middle of life, I also lost site of my dream.

Thanks for offering such valuable information that some of us may not have gotten otherwise, if you had not been led to offer-up free of charge.

God Bless

Need I say you are the BOMB Queen…Buzz on Buzz on!!!!

Thanks so much for the 411 last night. I became interested in investing over a year ago, went to some meetings and could not get reliable people to work with….so I got my r.e. license and I hate the traditional way of buying & selling. I do believe you are an answer to my prayers.

I wasn’t able to attend the meeting last night because of work. I am really interested in “getting my feet wet” in investing. What exactly is the real estate boot camp, and is it still possible to attend on tomorrow?

i haven’t had the opportunity to come out as of yet…but definitely on my list of priorities beginning the first quarter of the year.

i just wanted to say although i have not attended…i enjoy the daily buzz almost as much as my daily inspiration.

keep up the good work queen! looking forward to meeting and working with you all.

Acts 20:35

35 And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.

My husband and I finally made it out last night! This has been on our “things to do” list. You all provided a wealth of information and I’m so glad I was there to hear it. I’ve been interested in real estate investing for sometime now. And, we too have purchased several of the books, tapes and CDs from the infomercials. But, it was truly refreshing to finally meet someone who said that they “walk us by the hand” and teach us everything we need to know to be successful. That is truly awesome because I know everyone is NOT willing to do that. Thank you! You all are truly making an impact in PG County! I truly look forward to spending more time with you and learning the real estate secrets….

The seminar was excellent! As things would happen, I missed the first 20. The enemy had me a little distracted, hopefully I didn’t miss an opportunity. I am looking forward to changing my life and the life of others. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

I would like to discuss with you one-on-one with respect to the seminar that I attended. It was very informative as it touched on a lot of issues concerning investment, However, I was not able to participate in the boot camp but that is not to say that I do not want to in the future.
Be Blessed,
Yours Sister in Christ

I am a part-time real estate agent. I too don’t like the traditional way of buying and selling as agent I would prefer to be on the investing side of things allow me to have the supply. I want to make a choice of giving up my other part-time job and just go full speed ahead in the investing business. I did make a little start with this by purchasing two investment properties, but I need more knowledge and directions in setting my goal. Sometime I feel like I need a mentor who can take me under their wings and really teach me the ropes. Help is what I need. When will be your next free seminar?

Thank you very much for the wealth of knowledge that all you shared with all of us. I thank God for all of you. I really would like to take your Boot Camp Seminar, I truly believe that once anyone obtains the very valueable information that you teach, the money will be made back and it will pay for itself.  As soon as I am able to, i plan on taking the class. I am the young lady that shared my Halls cough drops with you in the hallway while when you were coughing. May God bless and keep you and yours.

So far everything I have heard from the audio cd and read on the blog seem very encouraging. I like the fact that you and your husband are local an willing to share such valuable information with ordinary people like myself. I am definitely interested and plan to attend the next seminar. all I need is to get started with the purchase of just one house and all of this will become real to me.

I wanted to start by saying THANK YOU!!! The Seminar on Thursday was so inspirational that I went straight home and tried to contact a couple of people who I thought might be interested in attending your next seminar!!!!!!!

I also want to say that I am a mother of 3 who has gone through alot of career downfalls. I now understand, that I am just one of those people who just can’t do the whole “CORPORATE AMERICA” thing. For many years I have been struggling to find what it is that I enjoy doing, and I must say that It has been a very long road. I have always been a people person and I feel at my best when I know that I can help in any way. I think that I myself need to have the freedom to come and go and not feel as if I am being used and at the same time unappreciated. I am just getting started as a Real Estate Agent so I am working a temp job that is being offered as a permanent position in January. I plan on taking that 1st step that you were talking about before, and indulge myself in your secrets of SUCCESS!!! So I am not going to accept the position.

P.S and when I do get to that point of having the knowledge and understanding, “I TOO” will help empower our community with everything that you have so kindly enlightened me and my family with. May God Bless you ……. and again thanks!

I am really interested in your program and will very much love to be a part of it being that i know that i can make a killing and be out of debt before you know it because it all lies in my faith in God and all he has done for me. I plan to apply for your boot camp. i will succeed in doing this and can be making money in the matter of weeks because through Christ i can do all things. I have been very blessed by you guys teaching people this business and helping them get on their feet it is a great thing and you will be blessed even more for that.
