My name is Derek Pierce, and I live in Alabama. I have just taken one of the biggest steps in my life by becoming a full-time real estate investor. First of all, I always thought that I wanted to be a corporate man and hold a big title with a big company. After about a year with a wireless phone carrier, I discovered that it wasn’t for me.
I started reading articles on this website and as many books by Robert Kiyosaki that I could. The information that I received has changed my life. While I worked full time I started by buying a couple of houses. I had three before going to the CRE Online Convention. After hearing William Bronchick, Jon Burley, and Ed Garcia, I knew what I had to do.
I went back to my room in the hotel and wrote out my 90-day goals: to quit my job in 90 days or less. But wait, all of the doubts were there because I have a family just like a lot of others. But the information that I received from the CRE Online Convention and the courses that I purchased helped to give me the knowledge and courage that I needed.
Since I have come back home, I have bought two houses that I am holding. I have put three houses and one mobile home under contract that I am flipping with a double close to other investors to make over $15,000 in cash money! All of these deals have happened in about the last six to eight weeks.
This was all of the proof I needed to make that next step. I accomplished my 90-day goal. I quit my job on June 22, 2001. It is strange how we can become “lucky” if we only plan our future to be lucky. I just wanted to thank you for this website and for putting the CRE Online Convention together. I’ll be back next year.
