Episode 146 | 10 Reasons Why You’re NOT Rich Yet

Happy Podcast Day folks! Aside from growing our moustaches for Movember, this week we’ve also been growing a ripper episode for you **drum roll please** …

Today, we’re giving you the 10 Reasons Why You’re Not Rich Yet!!!

(Now, we’ll be honest, we’re not huge fans of the word “rich” — we prefer the term ‘financially free’, but you get the gist.)

So why haven’t you got the money you thought you’d have by now? When is the suitcase of cash finally going to land at your feet? Is it something you might be doing/not doing?

Yep, this one just might make you have a long, hard look at yourself (in a nurturing way, of course).  Because there are TEN reasons — a few of which you might be doing now — that are blocking your shot at financial freedom.

 

Speaking of finances, if you help us donate to Movember with a $25 donation or more we will give you a FREE SIGNED COPY OF OUR BEST SELLER BOOK! Yep, we’ll cover the cost of the postage and, guess what … The book’s worth more than $25. AND donations above $2 are tax deductible! 3 wins. You, a good cause and us MoBros!!

How do you do it?

  1. Go to our Mo’s Team Page here and donate $25 or more.

AND if we hit our target of raising $5,000 for Movember, Ben has promised to create a FREE WEBINAR on Working Out Your Retirement Gap! But we need to hit the $5,000 mark to make him prioritise this. Remember, it’s for a great cause (and you get to see the guys look ridiculous for another 2 weeks)!

 

Alright, where’s the money at? (What you can expect in today’s show.)

Episode 141 | Success Leaves Clues: How Do You Compare to Australia’s Most Sophisticated Investors?

Alright folks, Episode 141 has landed! And today Ben is sliding on his “PIPA” Chairman top hat. Why?

Because PIPA’s Annual Investor Sentiment Survey is out! And the boys are going through these factual insights so you can see what the most successful investors are doing, thinking and learning, right now!!

 

So what’s PIPA?

If you’re a recent Coucher, you might not know that the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) is the peak association for businesses that operate in the property investment space. In other words: PIPA makes sure that professionals in the industry are, well, professional.

PIPA has developed a Code of Conduct (read it here) that their members MUST operate under. It’s a framework that, ultimately, makes sure clients come first — and aren’t misled from unsuspecting property spruikers!

 

What can you expect to learn from Australia’s sophisticated investors?

  • Is now a good time to invest in residential property?
  • What type of property are the majority of investor’s buying?
  • What state capital currently offers the best investment prospects?
  • What is the exit strategy should you consider adopting?
  • Should you be worried about the banks raising their interest rates?
  • Where is the most appealing place to buy right now?
  • How long should you expect your property to be negatively geared for?
  • Should the “bubble” stop you from investing?
  • Is there a need for regulation?
  • Is it possible to become a sophisticated investor on your own?

Episode 140 | Everything you need to know about Styling for Profit – Chat with Sara and Amy Chamberlain from The Real Estate Stylist

It’s about time we talk about selling a property! So today, we lift the standard with not only one, but two Property Stylists extraordinaire to share with us everything we need to know about styling for profit.

Want to add $50,000 – $300,000 to your property? Sara and Amy Chamberlain, owners of the successful styling company The Real Estate Stylist (TRES), are here to explain how it’s done.

Styling 300+ properties every year (1300 since TRES’s inception), these women are specialists in styling a space to make a killing at auction, focusing on buyer demographics, market specifics and a super-human level of detail. Sara and Amy have styled the properties of Rebecca Judd and previous TPC guests, Josh and Jenna from The Block and regularly feature on realestate.com.au as well.

Episode 135 | Andrew Bogut – Why is this NBA Superstar Still Adamant on Investing in Property?

Andrew Bogut, NBA superstar & Australia’s greatest basketball player, is here!

Alright, folks — we promised an international sports star to end our month of Awe-Guest — and we are really excited to announce that he’s here!

Yep, let’s not hide it. We are entirely pumped for this show!

Because not only is Andrew a basketball legend — he won the NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors in 2014 – 2015, playing with THE biggest names and best athletes in the world, and even represented Australia at two Olympics with the Boomers — but also Andrew is a highly effective investor himself, savvy with his millions AND (we feel very proud about this) is a regular listener of The Property Couch!

 

The 7ft tall talent gives us insights into the world of NBA (and what it’s literally like to break a leg in his first game with the Cleveland Cavaliers this year), how he set up his investment portfolio and what’s in store after basketball:

  • Firstly, how on earth did this internationally known sports star end up on The Couch?
  • What’s life like as an NBA player?
  • What do the financial future and investment mindset really look like for most NBA players?
  • His experience with some of the Financial “Snakes” out there
  • Why is an NBA player interested in suburb development and gentrification?
  • Investing in supercars and commercial properties
  • How important are trust funds?
  • How was money spoken of when Andrew was a kid — did this shape how he sees his future?
  • Aside from the hype, what does an NBA schedule really look like?
  • Let’s be rule: who is the best player in the league?

 

Oh and (we had to ask) … where does Andrew store his Championship ring?

 

Also, Andrew did a walk through our office … hilarious to see the size difference, even for our tallest members.

The Stig (hiding from the spotlight in true Stiggy style) didn’t stand a chance!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Episode 134 | From The Screaming Jets to Rock-tioneer! How this 90’s Music Icon went from Playing the Drums to Building a Property Portfolio – Chat with Craig “Rosie” Rosevear

Alright folks: what does the drummer from The Screaming Jets and property investment have in common?

Craig “Rosie” Rosevear!

That’s right—on The Couch today, the man behind the drums of one of Australia’ legendary bands explains how he used his royalties to break into the property market and transformed his touring days into a growing property portfolio and now, a charismatic, auctioning career! Yep. Aside from being the Founder of Rock Your Future and the owner of Rosie’s School of Rock—where he and his wife, Belinda, motivate and educate young people to be confident in both music and life—Craig is also an auctioneer at Cooley Auctions, winner of the Newcastle Heat of the Real Estate Institute of NSW Auctioneering Competition and a property investor with a knack for DIY renovating!

 

No stranger to hard work, Craig explains:

  • Firstly, what life is really like as a rock star!
  • How invaluable a good work ethic is, and how he managed to maintain it, despite fame and, well, being a rock star
  • Why he used his royalties to buy his first investment property
  • What he discovered about investing with equity that changed his way of thinking
  • How he became a borderless investor in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney
  • Ways to get around Sydney’s Housing Affordability
  • First Home Buyer mistakes and DIY renovation tips
  • How he got into auctioneering (it has something to do with Episode 121 with Damien Cooley)
  • The similarities between being a rock star & an auctioneer (“Rocktioneer”)
  • Investing in Newcastle, NSW
  • Things buyers should do at an auction
  • Business acumen tips from rock band KISS (!)

 

And (we had to ask), what is Craig’s “go to” rock star story? The unexpected, sneak peek into what Muso life was like …

He tells us right at the end—of course he did.

What an absolute pleasure!
