Free (really) eBook: Success - By Design

And when I say "free", I really mean it! You don't have to create an account, give your email address or even your name. Just click the button and it's yours!

"Success - By Design", downloaded over 4 million times is a bit different from all the other "secrets of success" books out there. It details 10 immutable laws of success, why they are important, and how to implement them.

My name is Bill Vaughn, and I was homeless, living in a shelter in Manchester NH. Now I am what most would call successful and wealthy - I own (free and clear) several homes, and all of my vehicles and "toys" are paid for - cash! I "work" less than 8 hours A WEEK (if you don't count working around the house, or on my classic vehicles, or on the wife's "honey-do" list)! And best of all, I do not owe anyone a red cent!

While living in the shelter I awoke one morning, stuck my mug in front of the bathroom mirror to cold shave, when it hit me - I deserved better. I NEEDED better. And I realized that only I could make "better" happen. I could no longer simply wait for my ship to come in, because I was waiting at the wrong pier.

I spent months putting together the 10 most important things that I believed to be necessary for success. And then I simply implemented them.

Within a year I was on my way to the top. I have not stopped. Even the economic collapse of '08 did not stop me, because these laws of success are sound and do not depend on a fickle economy.

And I knew I was on to something. I put all these things into an eBook, published online. And I made sure it was absolutely free to all. And if you are wondering why, then I have a challenge for you - Read the book. Within its pages is the surprising, yet logical answer, and it is the key to everything. It's the "magic" that makes everything work. It is sure to provide a "Eureka" moment for many.

So go ahead - read it. There is nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

Oh, and let me know if you figure out the answer to the riddle at the end.

Real Estate Investing - Cost vs Results

You have likely seen at least one "infomercial" where some real estate "guru" like Than Merrill, Armando Montelongo, Ron LeGrand or Carleton Sheets promises the listener can reap huge profits in real estate. All you have to do is attend a free seminar or some such. The sales hype is very compelling - they are masters at hawking what they have to sell. And what they have to (up)sell will cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to upwards of $60,000. To unsuspecting folks desperate for financial security, that still sounds like a bargain. But is it?

Real estate investing is not nuclear physics. Ordinary people have been making their fortunes in real estate long before the first "infomercial guru" ever hit the airwaves. I have been investiing in real estate successfully since 1969 - years before the first guru bought TV time. And I learned from my Dad, who had been investing since the Great Depression. In fact, people have been doing it since the time of Moses.

So the first thing a person should learn in Real Estate Investing 101 is simply this: you don't need to pay thousands or tens of thousands to learn how to do it. In fact, if you have that much money to put into some snake oil salesman's pocket, you could simply cut out that middleman and buy your first property with the money. All you need is to learn a few simple basics to get started and expand from there.

And, no, you don't need all those "apps" or "lists" or anything else - the gurus use those "bells and whistles" to try and make you believe that only THEY have the magic key to the kingdom, and it's worth every dollar they want to soak you for. Nope! You don't need any of that stuff, and for the most part, they are either worthless, or at best a minor convenience that helps lazy people stay lazy.

So, just what do you need to succeed in real estate investing? Just 4 things:

  1.  Knowledge of the methods and strategies, and how to utilize them
  2.  The perfect agreements and contracts that keep you from risking the farm, designed by   investors, for investors
  3.  A good, experienced mentor - a coach with at least several years field experience
  4.  The drive, determination and effort to use those things and get 'er done
The first three standard with "The Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate", developed by a veteran investor with almost 50 years of sound experience - and that would be me, Bill Vaughn. I developed my program in 1989 as a not-for-profit, for the express purpose of offering people an inexpensive (under $100) alternative to the exorbitant prices of the various "infomercial gurus". A program that teaches far more than any of the others, and does so in a simple, easy-to-understand format. I also developed software that easily creates all the agreements you will need. I have even enlisted investors, all with over 20 years field experience, to provide free, unlimited mentoring to help insure your ultimate success. Our clients always have a professional to turn to with questions, issues or assistance.

Of course, that still leaves the "4th thing" needed. That one is the responsibility of the individual. We cannot do it for you. So, if you don't think you have drive, determination or ambition to grow wealth, then you would be wasting your money buying ANY program.

If you have ever considered real estate as a wealth builder, then you owe it to yourself to at least check out my program, used by over 316,000 people since 1989. While there, download all sorts of free real estate and financial info for free. And if you know anyone else who could benefit, please don't hesitate to send them a link to this page, or to my homepage. They will thank you for it.

Now, before you go, if you would like a free eBook on the real secrets of wealth building, visit and download it. It is so free that I don't even ask you to provide any info - not even your name or email. Just click it and enjoy! I wrote that little book to share with everyone, so don't be shy about passing that on to friends, relatives and associates if you find any value in it. So far, it has been downloaded over 4 million times, so it seems to be popular!

Whatever you decide, may God be with you, may He bless you and keep you safe.

Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate - Recent BBB reviews

Just thought I would pass on these reviews of "The Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate", posted with the BBB by actual customers. All the advertising in the world can't bea word of mouth by customers.

Mr Brun posted, "I just wanted the opportunity to thank God for your support. I want to express my gratitude for your incredible, impressive, coaching style. I love your direct, no-nonsense, simple, prompt professional precise answer to the questions. Your experience is felt in each and every answer to my questions. It gives me such peace of mind...because you are in my corner of the ring and I can count on your seasoned prompt support. I have always believed and paid thousands of dollars for the added value of a great mentor. Without mentioning my 15-year real estate and business experience, I have paid, listened, read, and tested other very high-cost mentors. They don't even come close. Your business model is an ethical, honest giving back to your students your received blessings vs. the up-selling personal money-making machines out there in the market. You are the best. Thank God I found you. I'm impressed"

And from Mr Clowry, a customer for over 20 years, we find this: "This is a really great program. Well thought out advice with a down to earth touch. If you are looking for a company that can "get you going" in Real Estate and other life learning practical things, you would do well to check this out. I've never been disappointed in any of my contacts with them."

Of course, not all customers are so positive - no matter how good a product is, there will always be those who complain, and that holds true for us. But we know our product and service is very good, so, while complaints do concern us, we don't let them bother us much. As long as we try to make everyone happy, that is what counts.

"The Simple Man's Guide to Wholesaling" takes the reader through each step, in vivid detail - from locating target properties, making the offers, using the right contingencies, how to avoid the pitfalls, how to find buyers, closing the deal and every step in between. There has never been more detailed step-by-step instruction.

Wholesaling, AKA "assigning", is perhaps the simplest and quickest method for making money in real estate. But successful wholesaling does require sound methodology, like that found in this new ebook.

Bill has trained over 316,000 students since he first offered his full program in 1989. His program includes detailed instruction on all 22 methods of real estate investing, and each new student receives free, unlimited coaching. And now, Bill is adding his wholesaling guide as a free bonus to every new student.

But Bill issues a caveat - the current market won't last forever. It never does. There is a lot of money to be made now, as the economic train gains speed, and now is the time to get on board.

Check it doesn't cost anything to look.

Than Merrill's FortuneBuilders vs The Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate

A couple of days ago we received the following email from a client who had first gone to a Than Merrill FortuneBuilders seminar. This individual discovered exactly what we have been stating for 30 years - real estate investing is not rocket science - ordinary people have been using it to create wealth for over a thousand years. And as such, learning how to succeed in it should not cost thousands, or tens of thousands of dollars. When you compare the $50,000+ that  most "gurus" charge against the $100 cost of the complete "Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate", there really is no comparison.

Here is Kim's letter - we receive many such letters every month:

Subject: Than Merrill
Mar 25 at 11:20 AM

Where I already knew Than Merrill Fortune Builders would try to sell us on a more expensive program. We went to get some insight to the weekend workshop.

Having previously been involved in some RE dealings but still learning it did give me some helpful info worth my $200

We knew they would try to upsell a larger program & after looking them up expected $15,000-$30,000 as their price. People fell over at the $49,000 price tag then $34,000 or $25,000. In addition $97 monthly for software. $20,000 for an intense 2 day program after the Mastery program. It went on & on.

They should be ashamed to ask that much. Sell books at $100-200, sell software for $250, sell forms for $300. Anything in bits & pieces people can choose, I would think they would get more sales as opposed to having all but 2 people walking out

It's not an accredited college so don't compare it to one with those prices.
Yes invest in knowledge but don't rip people off.

If they were doing so well & enjoying RE, they wouldn't be trolling people in this manner they would honestly be helping knowing they don't need to make their true fortune from the students

We are so glad we found "The Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate". A simple, complete program at a VERY affordable cost. Thank you

FortuneBuilders - Building a Fortune For Themselves?

Anyone interested in real estate investing has probably heard of FortuneBuilders, operated by the former star of A&E’s “Flip This House” Than Merrill. It appears no city in America misses his real estate seminars.

But as Forbes magazine so aptly pointed out, seminars are not for teaching - they are for selling! And Than's "FortuneBuilders" is very good at selling.

The primary purpose of this article is to try and help keep some people from falling into the “medicine show” trap of the seminar circuits of infomercial gurus like Than Merrill, Armando Montelongo and the rest. That is not to say that their programs cannot work - what I am saying is that success stories are relatively rare, and NO real estate investing program is worth upwards of the $35,000-$60,000 some of these people charge.

FortuneBuilders first lures people who are desperate for financial security to their “free” seminar. This seminar is just a teaser, where a high-pressure sales pitch is used to get attendees to shell out $1500 for the REAL seminar. And at that “real” seminar the attendees are pressured to protect their $1500 investment by plunking down another $35,000 for the "full Monte”.

For those who want to know more about the real story, here is a full, objective and accurate Than Merrill/Fortune Builders Review - it’s a real eye-opener.

There are legitimate real estate investing courses available, but you won’t find them on late-night “infomercial” TV. And they will not cost an arm and a leg. Courses like “The Simple Man’s Guide to Real Estate” which includes everything needed to invest successfully, including free mentoring for life. How is that possible? It's easy - they operate as a not-for-profit, run strictly by volunteer investors. It's unbelievable what you can do when the profit motive is removed!

"Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate" Rolls Out Free Guide to Wholesaling

So many of todays' real estate "infomercial gurus" are touting what they call wholesaling. And almost every one of them teaches a method that is technically incorrect - even illegal in most states.

The method, itself, is actually and accurately called "assigning". To set the record straight, and in an effort to teach the correct (and 100% legal) way to assign, Bill Vaughn has written a new ebook, "The Simple Man's Guide to Wholesaling Made Easy", and it is currently being offered FREE to all customers.

"The Simple Man's Guide to Wholesaling Made Easy" takes the investor step-by-step from the very beginning - what type property to look for, and how to find them - all the way to cashing out and taking the assignment fee to the bank.

And, as always, "The Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate" course includes free mentoring, just in case you need any further assistance.

"The Simple Man's Guide to Wholesaling Made Easy" is one more way that Bill Vaughn has your back, and continues to provide the most complete, most effective real estate investing course available. And the entire course is still under $100, complete.

And with real estate now on the up-tick, and set to explode, there has never been a better time. Prices are relatively moderate, rates are still low and the population increasing daily - and everyone needs a place to live. And it certainly does not hurt to have a White House that is friendly to real estate and promises some overdue deregulation.

Maybe it's time to check it out...
