    Hi Cristy

    Welcome aboard.

    I'd start by educating yourself. Read widely and continue to visit this forum.

    Get an understanding of the fundamentals and have an idea of the strategy you'd like to use.

    At that point, if you feel that you still require a mentor type service then you'll know which ones will be more conducive to the way you'd like to invest.

    Cheers

    Jamie

    Thank you for the response Jamie,

    My husband & I have been studied for quite some time. We know exactly what type of education we are looking for but not so sure with the reliability of the institution. 

    Thanks,

    Cristy

    Hi cristy,

    HAve you done a search on the institution on this forum? You may find some more information. Or you can put the name up and someone may have already done that course and be able to provide more info.

    Cheers

    Hi Richard,

    I am looking for a course of mentor program that can fully help within time frame, 15 months or 2 years. Any thought?

    Cheers,

    Cristy

    It depends on what you are looking for. I believe that mentoring should be designed to suit your needs. What I do is work out what the student wants to achieve. Before you do anything it is important to work out your motivations. It is important to work with someone who will challenge your thinking and also that they are not trying to sell you a property. They should be making suggestions that will work for you.

    I agree with Nigel.

    You alone know what your strengths and weaknesses are, and a mentor is only worth even approaching once you've decided what your first set of achievable goals are.

    Its like a fitness class, some people want bigger biceps .. some want a six pack .. and others just want to look at fit women in the gymnasium while they exercise. But they all will tell you they want to get fit.

    Your property 'fitness' will depend on how much you want or need to know, the timeframe you will give yourself to achieve your goals, and from that .. the risk level you are prepared to take on to achieve those goals.

    Dont be afraid to challenge yourself, just make sure you do that with the appropriate knowhow at hand.

    And again .. quoting Nigel .. the solution that works for you .. is the one you want.

    Thank you Nigel and Xdrew,

    I have set up my goal and research on some of institutions that not sell the property. I almost register with one of them but their salesperson is really hard sale and pushy not providing much information as i need. so i called to the other branches to required more. But the guy called me back and call me crazy woman and told me to stop call other branches if i don't like his service: go ahead somewhere else. i did call back to complain and spoke to the owen but doesn't seem answer my thing. So i am going ahead somewhere else which on the process of research. 

    Just my condition have to do online cause we live in pretty remote area.

    Thank you guys for all of the response. and yes you all right it need to suit my situation and my goal.

    Cheers,

    Cristy

    Most of these groups are just trying to sell you something. There are exceptions. The results guys are good. I also run mentoring. Many of my clients are interstate so most communication is by phone or online. Generally the larger the organization either the bigger the sell or the more you will pay. If its a structured mentoring program how much of what you are being taught is relevant to you

    Cristy, what I found helpful in making a decision is to be clear about your goals. What is it that you are after?-An extra income stream? then go for positive cashflow. Tax deductions? then do negative gearing. Capital growth: then do buy and hold. Big amounts of profit in short time: reno, flips, developments, vendor finance (although these strategies require quite a bit of skill). Also, networking with other investors may give you more directions. Hope that helps.
