A real people guide to real estate investing
Author Anthony “Von” Mickle shares his road to success in achieving profitability
Bloomington, IN (Feb. 5, 2009): In Real Estate for Real People, author and Washington, D.C. area resident Anthony “Von” Mickle shares his experiences as a person that was without work for eighteen months, with just a small portfolio, to someone who turned his life around by investing in residential real estate to the tune of a three-million dollar portfolio over the next thirty-six months.
Mickle’s success can be duplicated by real people if they are willing to heed the mistakes that he made upon the way as he offers encouraging words to those wanting to learn. The chapters follow chronologically so the investor can take the steps necessary to be successful. They also include many insightful tips in the “something to think about” sections and encourage everyone to read some of the great success stories in other books as well.
“This book is a great motivator and proof that the American dream is still very much alive and well -- even in this tough economic time,” Mickle said.
One of the ideas Mickle lives by is PTFL: Passion, Timing, Fear and Leverage. He wants you to share your passion with others, know that the best investors don’t suffer from paralysis by analysis when it comes to timing, they don’t let fear consume them and they that you should use leverage to get something bigger.
But as Mickle says, Real Estate for Real People is a journey, not a get-rich-quick scheme. It takes very diligent work but with the steps he lays out in plain language everyone can understand and by staying away from the pitfalls, the reader will have a great chance at success.
So bring your team together and walk away informed, empowered and motivated with a plethora of new information and a new outlook on many things in your life that is just beginning to take off!
