**UPDATE** IS FREE!!!!
(OFFICIAL FREEDOM DATE: 12/16/2011) whooohooo!! lol

Hey I'm Jen! I'm a 33 yr old single mom of an incredible 16 yr. old son. Background is accounting both in construction and manufacturing fields. In 2008 I saw Dean's infomercial while I was in the hospital. No pen or paper, so I plugged the # into my phone. When I got home I ordered the book. It came, I barely broke the first few chapters and didn't finish it. In late 2009 I saw Dean again. Ordered the 2 pkg book deal he was offering. They came, and this time I read both plus the unfinished 1st. Couple months later I got a call from the Success Academy. Although I was seriously robbing Peter to pay Paul, I joined on a gut decision and act of faith. I knew it was what I was suppose to do. What I had to do! Some how, some way, I would make it work! It took me about 7 mo to do a deal (I had alot of 'junk' to get through and get over myself. I had some growing to do). Since then I haven't looked back! It was the start of a life that would be forever changed. That's why in my signature on posts I have "Revised Product of DG" because I am. Dean gave me hope. He provided me with the tools, the knowledge, the hope that if I'd do the work I could have the results. So I trusted him! Because of RE I bought my life back! I AM free! YOU CAN TOO!

**UPDATE** IS FREE!!! (FREEDOM DATE: 12/16/2011)

hi Jennifer...

missgee64's picture

just thought I would send you a quick message to say hello and tell you how inspired I am by your postings--I am also from Alabama (Montgomery also)...and I KNEW I had to send you a message (anyone who loves UFC & Bama Football can't go wrong in my book!! ROLL TIDE!!) Keep posting and I hope to chat with you one day soon!! Take care and God Bless!!

Dancing With The Stars & REI

Well, I don't live in Alabama so my heart belongs to the SF Giants & The Stanford Cardinals Smiling, however, I had to leave you a message just to tell after reading the thread on "placing bandit signs", that I love your personality. If you think you are crazy for going to bed and waking up thinking about strategies for real estate, call me crazy too Smiling, but I think you are a bit crazier for jumping out of an airplane, whew. Good Luck in REI.
David

Oh I Forgot To Mention

You can't go wrong with a famous name like Baby, I mean Jennifer Gray. She did win the Dancing With The Stars Competition,,,,,So Shoot For The Stars With REI. Smiling

Nothing like tax season

willowme's picture

To help us keep our eyes on the prize of NEVER HAVING TO GO THROUGH ANOTHER ONE AGAIN! lol This will be my 8th.

I work as an admin for an accounting firm. sigh Nuf said. By 2015 I WILL have enough passive income to replace mine and my husbands JOB. (I keep telling myself that and actually believe it now. How cool is that!)

Keep the faith. You will get through March 15th and then April 15th. But what are your REI goals for this time? I think mine will be something like have 2 deals done by EDGE. Don't know how yet but I'm working on it. Eye-wink

Hello

Hi Jennifer!

Jonlubin's picture

I'm Jon and am new to the "Family"...but I wanted you to know that it was great to read through your stream to see the progress and the determination! I made the conscious decision to join the gang and to do it no-holds barred here in the Birmingham Area. I am trying to build my "team" and find some buyers...but I have already found a couple of great deals...so we will see how it goes.

I wanted to let you know that I actually have Family and friends in the construction industry and we own Cherry Marble Group down there (Granite, Marble, ETC...). Let me know if you need any leads or help in that area and I would be glad to help! Know alot of the better sub-contractors in the area having been on the associates committee @ the GMHBA back a couple of years before selling out of the business and moving up here.

Anyway...sorry to go so long...but I just wanted to say hello and let you know that if it's ok...I'll pop in and bother you from time to time as I am just getting started and enjoy learning from everyone.

In closing...here is one of my favorite quotes of all time..."We miss 100% of the shots we don't take!" - Wayne Gretsky

Thanks for the encouragement!!!

Jon

Jennifer, thank you so much

Jennifer, thank you so much for your posts. Just starting off here and tried to go to the Fed.gov site you mentioned once. I couldn't find any such URL. Can you give me the exact address? I'm looking into grants and you mentioned that in one of your reponses to someone a little bit ago.

Another Jennifer...

...just wanted to say hello. Have been enjoying your comments --- and admiring your fire!

Your comment to DG blog

Richlee's picture

I viewed you comment to Dean's blog this morning. I appreciate and agree to your philosophy of giving back to others. I have been in the construction business for over three decades. Wow, that's scary when I write it.
Anyway, over the years I have accumulated many forms and templates that helped me streamline my construction business.
The best one I developed was an excel document that is a tool for assessing whether or not a property will work for me. In addition to the regular items that accompany the sale of a property, this spreadsheet has a cost for repair area to plug in the costs for repair or remodeling.

The cost part of the spreadsheet, flows into that line item on the general analysis sheet. If this would be of help to you, or any member of the DG family that is following your post, I will gladly send it along.

If you think there are other things I may have that would be helpful, let me know.

Good luck on your new adventure.

Your namesake in remake?

jade_east's picture

Hi, Jen~~~
I know people are fascinated by the Jennifer Gray /Dirty Dancing thing; now my neighborhood - Lake Lure - is hoping for a remake of the movie here.

"A mountain town is lacing up its dancing shoes. A remake of an old classic movie, could bring Hollywood back to Lake Lure. Its been almost 25 years since Dirty Dancing made its silver screen debut. The blockbuster hit was partially filmed in Lake Lure in 1987. The production company Lionsgate, recently announced it will remake the film, but hasn't specified if they'll return to the area. Rutherford County Tourism is promoting the area to different agencies, with hopes the movie makers will choose Lake Lure once again."

If you decide you want to try investing in some lake homes around here and see if the namesake cache works any magic, just let me know Smiling Lots of high-end second homes on the market; not so many starters though.

I have even negoiated deals that were unbelievable! but when its time to sign the contract (which I have a 30 day to maket or walk free and clear claus) I don't know if i'm to sign as the buyer or not.?..should I have an agent represent me? when the owner started talking about earnest money and closing cost , I paniced and told him I'm not really a buyer I just find buyers...This was a Two house deal for $11,000..well he said he will let me know in two weeks 9f he wanted to do somthing like that..(scared him off i think). Just ordered Dean's book but until it gets here can you give me the steps...Are they 1.

Hello

cantstopme's picture

Hi Jen,

I have been really liking your posts and you said something that I would really like to use as my "quote" after my name when I post. It really makes me think every day. I work for my parents, and my Father has been really depressed about business. I told him what you had wrote, "Don't you get it? You're fighting a fixed fight. God already has laid out the path for you to win." This might not sound good when you first read this, but keep reading on. I have 4 children and I have always told them that I'm awesome- goofing around of course, but I mean it too. My oldest told me that I shouldn't brag because it's not nice: ) Then I asked her if she thought she was awesome and she said "no." I then said, "What? Are you saying God messed up? Do you think he made a mistake? He created you, and me, which makes us really awesome! And your post about fighting a fixed fight just fits right in. Thank You!
