Do 5 Star Reviews or Endorsements Influence The Way You Buy?

Asking for Help Can Lead to 5 Star Reviews and Endorsements

You might be wondering what 5 Star reviews or endorsements have to do with asking for help and accomplishing a goal?

Over the last couple of months, I have written a series of blog posts about my book-writing journey.

In addition, I have shared how you can bring your own book to lifeAnnouncing Your Book in the World, How to Raise Remarkable, Rich Words

Beta Group and Coaching Clients

I have had a lot of help along my book-writing travels, such as beta test subjects and readers. In addition, I worked with a beta group of people, coaching clients in their pursuit to purchase investment real estate.

These folks are very supportive and are happy to be guinea pigs. But, above all, they have embraced my words, processes, methods, and teachings and encouraged me to write a book.

In addition, the input from this clientele is part of my compensation for coaching their investment real estate development needs.

Your Success

Using these types of clients in your business can be a big part of your success. People love to share if they know you are listening and implementing their ideas; anything is possible for your business.

We make mistakes along the way; above all, if you don’t take your client and beta group’s valuable critique personally, the chances are you learn, grow, and share. How to Attract Prosperity for All Aspects of Your Life Forever

Learn, Grow and Share Comes to Life

As I developed my skill set, knowledge, processes, and methods and the encouragement I am receiving, this has resulted in a book.  The book launches on August 19, 2021, digital and print through Amazon. (see link below)

Advance Review Copy Readers

Reaching out to potential clients, investment real estate investors, and industry influencers to read my book in advance of my book launch is rewarding. These advance review copy readers’ reactions have been so gratifying.

Am I trying to use their words to influence you to preorder my book through Amazon?  Yes!

Sharing some of the reviews with you is important; it helps you lower the risk of making a small investment into purchasing my book.

Above all, the reactions to my book gave me the confidence to know I wrote a good investment real estate book. To hear my book was also motivational beyond the area of investment real estate made my day.

Gifting this book might be an option, but if people have some skin in the game, they are more likely to spend time reading the book.

If you know someone that might benefit from this book, please share this blog post.

Praise for the Book

“31 Days to Purchasing and Renting Your First Investment Real Estate Property.”


“I was fortunate to read a copy of Rick Harris’s book in advance, and I think it’s a thorough and helpful quick-start guide to investing in real estate. Rick is a credible and knowledgeable investor and author, and he shares his wisdom from years of experience. He urges the reader to take action (something I also emphasize), and his thirty-one-day guide makes that very simple! Rick does not attempt to make real estate investing out to be a get-rich scheme . . . because it’s not. Instead, he is very clear with setting expectations and laying out a realistic strategy. And he references dozens of helpful resources along the way. Highly recommended!”

Rachel Richards

“When I started working with W. Rick Harris as his editor on 31 Days to Purchasing and Renting Your First Investment Real Estate Property, I never expected that the book would lead me on my own investment real estate journey. But with the rich knowledge and expert guidance Rick provides, I realized homeownership was within my reach. The goal-oriented incremental approach makes diving into investment real estate less daunting, and knowing what to expect at each stage of the process gave me the confidence to move forward. Now, I’m the proud owner of a beautiful home on one of B.C.’s Gulf Islands, building my equity for the future while providing my aging parents with housing security at the same time. Thanks, Rick!”

Robin Schroffel Editor

“If you are seriously entertaining buying your first investment real estate property, I would strongly recommend you read this book. I was amazed at the incredible detail the author has provided the reader with an in-depth review of the many steps to buying your first investment property. In addition, the author provides many experiences he had in buying his first property and how his mistakes can make your experience a lot less stressful. By reading his book, you can feel the author’s passion for investment real estate.”

“I am an investor. I like to invest and have invested in many things, including real estate. I know that investment real estate requires planning and discipline. Rick’s book is a no-nonsense, practical, and very informative step-by-step outline of the process required to make your investments count. If being in the top 2 percent of the real estate investing game interests you, you have a practical reference to guide you to this or any investment real estate goal. Rick’s passion for what he and his family have achieved financially through investment real estate rings loud and true in this firsthand account. Rick is willing, able, and qualified to share this information with you so that you, too, can benefit from smart financial planning and investing. 31 Days to Purchasing and Renting Your First Investment Real Estate Property is a detailed, resource-rich, step-by-step approach to achieving success with your very first foray into the world of investment real estate.”

“I have been a real estate investor for over twelve years. I started with one property and have since expanded my portfolio to three. In that time, I have met with Rick often, and he has provided me with a wealth of coaching and knowledge. However, what I didn’t have when I began as an investor that this book offers, beyond the worksheets and formulas for investment, is the mindset for success! Having the right mindset and the right numbers will help a person go a long way in building their portfolio. This book is a gem that comes from someone with a lifetime of experience, knowledge, and a goal-directed attitude that is second to none! An easy-to-follow guide with many of the author’s personal experiences woven into the fabric of the information, making it easy to read and follow.”

Michelle Heyden Macdonald
Co-owner, Full City & Supply

“I’ve always had an interest in real estate and have watched the various markets as an observer with the idea of the possibility of owning an investment property. Reading various books and articles about owning investment property, I generally found them lacking in specific details regarding the necessary steps and personal experiences. When I read 31 Days to Purchasing and Renting Your First Investment Real Estate Property by W. Rick Harris, I found a true guide for getting into investment property ownership. The book has some personal experiences listed by the author to acknowledge experience to illustrate the main theme. It gives a very detailed walk-through of the steps and knowledge required to make ownership a reality. The bonus for me was learning about ‘goal-directed thinking’ and the steps required to move from a wish to a reality. The author continues to impress the importance of checking in and evaluating the process, which I found a great coaching model. I will continue to refer to this book as a guide for my journey as a new landlord and owner of an investment property. A great read and a great resource for anyone considering or planning on entering ownership of investment real estate.”

You know your stuff, Rick, and your knowledge comes through in a detailed and straightforward narrative. It is a joy to read. CONGRATULATIONS!”
