    Has anyone got any insights into these seminars?
    Day 1 was pushing a 35-60k mentoring program, with around 2 hours of actual property talk.
    Has anyone else attended a prior seminar? I'm a bit ticked as I paid $1250.

    Wow. I know nothing about it. Still, I'll say run, run fast.

    I'd be ticked off too if I paid good money to listen to advertising. How long do these seminars go for?

    WTF!!! Are people seriously that gullible (or desperate) to learn from spruikers!
    Go out there and make your own tracks by doing your own research, not trying to find some secret sauce.

    Can you get a refund as it hasn't met your expectations? And secondly, Robert Kiyosaki, is he broke right now?

    It's annoying as i wanted to genuinely learn how to analyze markets. Not get any secrets or whatever but learn myself. Anyone reading this do not buy into that mentor scheme. They couldn't even provide value at $1250 let alone 35000.

    Fair enough. Makes sense. If you went in not expecting some silver bullet then you had the right mindset. Shame they couldn't capitalize on your good will.

    Sounds like there may have been false and deceptive advertising to get you to sign up to that expensive 'teaser'. Why not get onto the department of fair trading and see if you can get a refund. Have a look at Australian Consumer Law legislation.

    People all too often overcomplicate a fairly simple process.

    That's all you need. Read em, study em, discuss em, apply em.

    Total cost = $150 approx.

    There is no super quick way to get the knowledge. Simply takes time.

    My opinion.

    @Leo2413 What is the BEST book you have read in your time? That is, if you could only ever read one property investing book, which one would you choose?

    Hi @Gurtofen

    I honestly can't recommend any 1 book as the 'best'. ..wish it was that easy but it just isn't. For me at least, I found reading quite a few from different aussie authors, then taking bits and pieces from all as well as from the forum and other places, to be the way to go.

    What i found is that the more learning you do via books, video, forums and networking, the more informed and beneficial a perspective you will gain.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Agree with Leo. Heaps of good books out there. But even once you have read them, the key is to devise a strategy and take the first step!

    All means nothing if you don't execute.

    Great feedback already, although I am compelled to add:

    Cannot believe people fall for the Robert Kiyosaki line. He might talk the talk, but he does not walk the walk. The ideas are fine and dandy, however I see little to no substance.

    For me, it is like the "business bible" from Jim Collins. How many of those great companies are still great? Not many that is for certain.

    Please, whatever you read, do so with a critical eye.

    I'm still starting out my journey, but I've ready a few books. My response to this question (so far) is How to Achieve Property Success by Margret Lomas. The strategy she seems to promote appeals to me more than say, Michael Yardney. It's less so a mind set book (but there is stuff like that in there) but more of an all round book good for beginners. My 2cents.
