When interviewed about his car production process, Henry Ford said, “I’ve never made a mistake in my life. Never! And neither did you ever make a mistake—or anybody else .For what purpose do you suppose you are living on earth? Do you know what you are here for? l'll tell you what every living person is here for, and that is to get experience. That's all we can get out of life.”

 

On today’s show, I want to talk about the value of making mistakes. I’ll share some of my own struggles in my business, and my attempts to grow from them. You’ll learn about the power of getting uncomfortable and taking risks, and how to use your own mistakes as learning tools.

Self-storage is one incredibly fascinating area within the real estate investing industry. Self-storage investing involves many of the staples of running a real estate business like taxes, acquisition, and monthly cash flow—but without having to worry about on-site tenants. 

 

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m joined by Scott Krone of Coda Management Group. Scott is here to share his unique approach to self-storage investing, including building a simplistic business model and why demographic trends can create a need for self-storage. You’ll learn about converting buildings for self-storage, what it takes to get started, and much more!

If you find yourself wanting to sell a rental property, capital gains taxes can be incredibly challenging. By now, you probably already know the power of a 1031 Exchange. But like most strategies, a 1031 Exchange is not one-size-fits all.

This strategy is a game changer—you don’t want to miss episode 526 of Investing in Real Estate!

I’m a sucker for a great story. I don’t care what it’s about – if it’s compelling, I want to hear about it. That’s why I’m so excited about this new daily sports podcast from Wondery and The Athletic. It’s called ​The Lead​, and it’s a sports show for everyone: from die-hard fans to people like me who just love a ​good​ story.

Every weekday morning, ​The Lead​ will bring you one big story from the Athletic's all-star team of local and national sports reporters. Some stories will be a fresh take on a major news event, and other episodes will feature an in-depth look into what’s been happening off the field.

From a story about how the Ice Bucket Challenge started with a women’s volleyball team, to the intersection of sports and mental health, ​The Lead​ is your daily lens into the biggest stories of the day, told by the people who write them.

The Lead​ is hosted by sports writer Kavitha Davidson and Peabody award-winning journalist Anders Kelto, who will take you behind the scenes with comprehensive reporting and exclusive interviews you won’t hear anywhere else.

You’re about to hear a preview of The Lead that takes a deep dive into the Tampa Bay Rays fanbase and what the future of the team could look like. While you’re listening, go subscribe to The Lead on Apple Podcasts, or wherever you’re listening for your daily dose of sports. There’s also a link in the episode notes that will take you there.

This episode is all about looking for your next challenge, and how to become immersed in a growth mindset. You’ll learn about learning from your difficulties, how to gain wisdom and strength, and what it means to look for your next rock to climb.

Physical rental properties are not the only performing asset that can help you build wealth. Holding paper, also known as seller financing, is a smart way to diversify, bring in cash flow, and create financial freedom. And on the other hand, if you’re looking to acquire real estate, owner financing can be a smart way to make a purchase.

 

Today’s guest, Mark Ross, is the CEO at Good Steward Lending Services, a company that provides solutions to buy, sell, and lend against notes. On today’s show, Mark is starting the ins and outs of holding paper, including the subtleties of the Dodd Frank law, the benefits of owner financing, and how to create a deal that is beneficial for all involved parties. Don’t miss episode 524 of Investing in Real Estate!

A lot of new investors often wonder how long it will take them to make back their initial investment on a rental property. However, this is the wrong question to ask. When you become a real estate investor, you’ll want to start thinking of your money as streams of cash, not piles of cash.

 

On today’s show, we’re walking you through a real life example from one of our listeners. You’ll hear exact numbers, ROI, and how to start asking the right questions when it comes to your investments. Please join us for episode 523 of Investing in Real Estate!

Oftentimes, the hardest part of building wealth can be changing your mindset. Many of us have been indoctrinated with false ideas about saving for retirement, the morality of debt, and what it means to purchase your primary residence. But once you can start questioning those ideas and beliefs, you can begin to identify what is true for you, and lay out your own path to financial freedom.

 

Today’s guest, Financial Freedom Academy member Drew, is living proof! While completing the Financial Freedom Academy, Drew and his wife were able to shift their mindsets, get clear about their goals, and purchase 22 rental properties in just one year! On this episode, Drew is sharing his experience as an FFA student, what it’s like to become a successful real estate investor, and his goals for his family business!
