Over a seven year journey I estimate that I lost $2 million. The reason is because I didn’t stick to my investing strategy. What is the reason you invest in property? Too many people move through their investment journey without knowing the answer to this question. I personally have invested in real estate using 22 different strategies, and now I know what works for me and many others. Take it from me – you can’t count on just figuring it out as you go, you actually have to sit down and think about it. This is a raw and big conversation on what it takes to create long term wealth.
On episode 30 I discussed Money Shame, and it was a doozy. It had a massive response, because as investors we need to deal with our “money stuff”. Limiting beliefs about money and a poor wealth psychology will cripple any investor. Inequality is one of the biggest megatrends on the planet today. So what does that mean for us property investors?
How do you get a discount in the real estate market? How do people build multiple assets in the real estate space? Right now, real estate is skyrocketing in Australia, and it’s easy to think that times like these are the only opportunities you will have to make money in real estate, but there are other ways. How do you make money off your assets when the market is at zero? This is all the stuff that we are going to be talking about in the show today.
Today I’m asking the big, critical question that too many of us shy away from. How much money do you need to die? Personally, as I’ve watched my parents over the past two decades since retiring, I’ve noticed their quality of life has diminished because they aren’t able to live the way they truly want.
Ever heard of the red ocean and blue ocean strategies? These are ideas that were initially created for the corporate world to help businesses grow more efficiently. However, we can also use these strategies and apply them to our property investing to stimulate wealth.
As a property coach there is one particular strategy that I teach to all of my clients and it is this – The Four Time (4x) Growth Plan. The 4x Growth Plan is a strategy I use for every single investment I make, and today I’m going to explain it based on an example of a property I own in which it worked really well.
