EP234: Why Financial Advisors Won't Talk to You About Real Estate - Interview with Brent Sutherland

You probably already know that real estate is the best way to build wealth and get a high return on investment.

EP231: We Don't See Things the Way They Are, We See Them the Way We Are.

I’ve made it my mission to help others reach financial freedom, and part of that job entails listening to the backgrounds and stories of people who want to build wealth. I can’t help but notice that there are two distinct mindsets when it comes to real estate investing: one is based out of fear, and the other is centered on abundance. On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’ll talk about how our reality is colored by our perceptions. I’ll speak in depth about the two different...

When we posted the podcast episode about how we’re starting to learn about investing with life insurance, we were inundated with an influx of questions! Admittedly, we are not experts on this topic.

EP228: The Financial Freedom Matrix

Are you trapped in the Financial Freedom Matrix? Recently Natali and I watched the Matrix again, and this time I viewed it through the lens of a real estate investor.

EP227: From Fixing Leaky Pipes to Raising Millions of Dollars - Interview with Abhi Golhar

Something I’ve noticed about real estate investors is that most of us have failed in some way.

EP226: Men Listen to This Episode NOW - Interview with Lewis Howes

In my experience talking to investors, men specifically have difficulty being vulnerable. Many of us become consumed by our ego, and feel like we have to put on a façade. In reality, this does us no favors; it keeps us from growing, investing, and building wealth. On today’s show, I’m excited to sit down with my friend Lewis Howes to talk about his new book, The Mask of Masculinity. We’ll discuss how we as men can hold ourselves responsible, and how to begin responding with compassion...

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m sharing eight deductions your tax advisor should be accounting for. I’ll talk about expenses like travel, education, and much more.

EP222: Don't Fall in Love with Real Estate, Fall in Love with ROI

One of the main pieces of advice I give people is to not fall in love with real estate, and instead focus on return on investment. The reason why I have to constantly repeat this mantra is because it’s really easy to fall into this trap! In fact, it just happened to me this weekend. I almost abandoned my entire real estate philosophy! On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m sharing my story of almost purchasing a vacation rental in Maine. I’ll discuss how I got an idyllic...
