Hello, and welcome to The Naked Investor. 

No doubt real estate investing is a fluid business, always changing in one way or another.  For example, look at how dramatically marketing has changed in just the past decade or so.  We used to "dial for dollars", as we called it, every weekend when the FSBO ads came out in the newspaper.  Now, print media is a dying industry as marketing has moved online and digital.

My point?  Yes, certain aspects of real estate have changed, but some facets remain viable.  Lease options are still in use today and probably more popular than they were when I started 25 years ago.  Your location isn't as restrictive as it once was.  If someone's local market isn't producing the results they want, with a few mouse clicks we can do deals at a distance.  Don't put up obstacles where there aren't any, tw33tybyrd.  You can do this.  The key is to remember you aren't in the real estate business. . .you're in the marketing business.  Find sellers in need of debt relief, (and that's really what it comes down to), let them know how you can help them, and you'll succeed.
Let me know if you need any help.

Thank you MC! I am thrilled to get your response and even more impressed that it happened so quickly. I'm digging into your forum. I would love to purchase your book as well, is it published yet? Where would I find it?

The older, first edition manual is available here.  I have been negligent in completing the 2nd edition.  It's on my to-do list, but it's a matter of making the time to sit and write for hours. . .and hours.  So I do not have a time table for publication at this time.
