One thing I’ve learned over the years is that being successful in real estate is about more than numbers in a spreadsheet. It’s incredibly difficult to reach financial freedom unless you’re able to step outside of limiting beliefs, and work on personal development.

He is a strategist, executive coach, and author who works to help leaders overcome the obstacles that hinder them from reaching their potential.

 

On today’s show, you’ll learn about the importance of self-awareness, and how to make an impact. We’ll talk about metrics other than profitability that factor into success, and how to make sustainable improvements. Don’t miss episode 230 of Investing in Real Estate!

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. We’re just a family learning as we go.

Joe McCarrie is know as “the Insurance Guy,” and he was kind enough to help us debunk some of the most commonly held misconceptions about the Infinite Banking Concept. Joe is sharing his golden rule for taking out an insurance policy, as well as the ins and outs of taxes and interest rates.

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. I immediately noticed many similarities between being living in the Matrix and following traditional advice about wealth building and retirement planning.

 

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m sharing how traditional investing is a lot like the comfortable false reality of the Matrix. I’ll share specific examples from popular advertisements, and share some literature you can study to pull away from the Matrix! Don’t miss this episode of Investing in Real Estate!

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, Abhi is sharing his journey into the world of real estate, including how he has reverse engineered his lifestyle.

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 instead of reacting negatively. We’ll also talk about setting your intention every day, investing passively, and much more! Lewis has so much insight to share, you won’t want to miss episode 226 of Investing in Real Estate!

My favorite tax accountant Tom Wheelwright likes to say, “if you’re a real estate investor and you’re paying taxes, then you’re doing it wrong.” One of the top benefits of real estate investing is the enormous overall implication on your tax burden.

 

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. If you want to make sure you have all your bases covered in order to lower your taxes, don’t miss episode 225!

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 notion in my head, and how I came back down to reality.

Wholesaling is a means that many investors, myself included, have used to jump into the world of real estate investing. As a wholesale investor, you don’t actually own properties. Rather, you find contracts and sell them, and then collect a finder’s fee. Wholesaling is a great way for someone with limited capital to kickstart their investing journey and get funds in the bank quickly.

 

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m interviewing Brent Daniels of Wholesaling Inc. Brent is a master wholesaler and expert cold caller who works with my mentor in wholesaling, Tom Krol.

A 1031 exchange is an incredibly powerful tool that allows an individual to save on taxes after the sale of a piece of real estate. This tax deferral program permits the investor to sell a real estate property and then reinvest the funds in a property of equal or greater value. Doing so allows the investor to keep more money in their pocket, and defer all capital gains taxes.

 

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, Natali and I are sharing the six rules you must follow when conducting a 1031 exchange. We’ll discuss best practices for dealing with the IRS, and what you must do to successfully complete a 1031 exchange and defer taxes. We’ll also share more details about our favorite 1031 experts, and discuss resources you can use to learn more!
