I read this book and then read it again. Then, I bought his course and began actually putting the concepts into motion. His website has over 100 hours of materials on it. I plow through more of it every single day and still have a lot to go. Not a day goes by that I don't learn several things. Mitch Stephen isn't a big "guru" like so many others out there. He's actually a real, live person who truly cares how the program is working for you and wants to see you succeed. If you demonstrated that y ...more

Mitch is a great story teller who writes with a passion for more than just real estate. The book is a must grab for real estate investors or enthusiast but do not expect it to be a "how to", as its more of a autobiography of Mitch Stephens life. Real estate investing poses challenges everyday, but this is not a story of someone who did it and got lucky, Mitch is a work dog and had to pound the pavement for years and years before he reaped any reward. Whats truly inspirational is how Mitch would ...more

“I have heard Carlos say it a thousand times, “What a Country!” After the betrayal he has experienced, I don’t know how he ever forgave this country. ME: How did you ever forgive the U.S. for what they did to you and your countrymen? CARLOS: There is a big difference between the men (presidents) that come and go and the country itself. Take Cuba for example: I love that country and my countrymen even though I hate the dictatorship that currently rules and ruins that land. Today, my allegiance is to the United States. I may agree or disagree with the president of the day. That is part of what makes this country what it is. But no matter who is in office, the United States of America is still the greatest country in the world. No other place in the world provides for opportunity the way America does. As long as countries are run by mankind, I doubt there will ever be a perfect country. But the United States of America is the only place in the world I could have lived the dream I’ve lived. What a country!” 0 likes
