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.
  2. Once you’ve done it, let us know by commenting on this Facebook Post here.
  3. We’ll send you the book. Easy!

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.)

 

Remember: Money’s not everything. And you can experience huge wealth in helping others! Donate to Movember here.

Episode 075| Q&A – RBA Rate Cut, Planning for Reduction in Income and Bidding Tactics at Auction

This week on The Property Couch Podcast, we are going through some of our listeners’ questions. But before that, Bryce and Ben will be discussing the 25 basis point cut passed on by the Reserve Bank of Australia early this week. How will this impact the Australian Economy, how much have the banks passed on and will there be any flow-on effect on the Australian household?

Here are the questions for today’s podcast:

  • Question on planning for a reduction in income from Matt: How do you plan for a reduction in income when you are still a reasonable distance from retirement and would it be wiser to maintain current income for long term potential or is there a process that could be applied?
  • Question on bidding tactics at auction from Adam: I was hoping in your next Q&A perhaps Bryce might be able to address the topic of bidding tactics at auction. Most of the tips and strategies you read amongst the property press propaganda are ridiculous things like dress in a suit and pull up in a sports car out the front. In your experience is there any value in these sorts of image approaches? or concepts such as ‘knockout bids’ and bidding late, or are auctions pre-determined events going to whoever was always going to pay the most. I know you will say the gold standard is to employ a buyers agent but I’d be interested in your tips for someone keen to DIY.
