Learning by doing accelerates things. For note investor Dan Deppen, the journey to note independence started off when he read about note investing online and found Note Camp. It was the first real note training that he did. After six months or so of studying and trying to figure things out, he joint ventured with a more experienced note investor and right around the same time bought his first note. Dan says it’s great to go through all the theory and put together a model and figure out your game plan, but then when things actually start happening and you encounter different situations, that’s when you learn all the details and the mechanics of how the sales work. Dan talks about his first day as a full-time note investor, his path to quitting his job, and his goals of financial freedom.
