Real Estate Member Reviews for Books, Courses & Seminars
When we all dig we find more gold!
For us life-long students, bookworms and seminar junkies there are an endless supply of material: some great and some definitely not good.
But almost without exception we can find some gold nuggets in our endeavors.
But There’s a Problem These Days
Who’s got time for it all?
The big problem is carving out the time to read the whole book or attend the seminars (the digging) in order to find the gold. Not to mention the risk of spending money on something unproven.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could have an executive summary of the best points of a book without having to read it?
So I have an idea (I’m full of them; just add coffee).
IDEA: howzabout after we finish a book, a course or seminar we prepare a little executive summary for the REI members of the highlights. Then we can either present the summary at the next REI meeting or in write it up and post it into the member website. I see three steps to it:
- Summarize the content
- Find the ‘Best of ‘
- Present the summary
We would summarize the content (the book, course or seminar) down to give the ‘best of’ in a short, concise bulleted fashion with the actionable ideas, the big-thinking concepts, the trends, the Big AHA!…., whatever gold we were able to dig from our time invested.
I believe if several of us did this we would get a huge return on our investment. For example:
- Keeps you informed – get quick access to top business ideas
- Saves you time – get actionable ideas from each review
- Saves you money – get great ideas for a fraction of the cost
If you are interested in this Member Review idea I would love to hear you thoughts.
