Episode 200 | Paul Clitheroe – Timeless Wisdom from the Original “Money” Guru

Folks, it’s finally here…… our 200TH EPISODE!!!!!!!!!!

Pheeeeeeeeeeuuuuuuuuppppp!!!!

(This is as close as we can get to a Party Horn sound.)

And, boy, do we have a legendary episode for you!!! To give you an idea folks — when we locked in today’s guest, Ben was cartwheeling and high-fiving all over the joint. And for good reason… because joining us today is none other than THEMoney” man himself, Mr Paul Clitheroe!!!

Look, we probably don’t need to tell you that from 1993 – 2002, Paul Clitheroe was indeed a household name — appearing in people’s lounge rooms as he hosted the wildly successful show Money on the Nine Network. Yep. Almost one in two households were watching his show, so if you’re like us, and you’ve got a bit of “salt and pepper” in your hair, chances are you were one of the folks watching!

For those Gen Y-ers who might not know Paul, he (along with his uni mates) founded the leading investment research and advisory company ipac, back in 1983. He’s got more than a handful of books to his name — Money, Marriage and Divorce, Making Money, The Road to Wealth, Free Yourself from Debt, Make your Fortune by 40… and this isn’t even all of them! You can stalk all of his books here.

To put the cherry on his very successful career, Paul’s gone on to dedicate his professional life to serving others, having been an active advocate of financial literacy for DECADES and championing ASIC’s MoneySmart Schools. To give you an idea, he’s Chairman of the Australian Government Financial Literacy Board and Financial Literacy Australia, as well as the Chairman of InvestSMART. Oh, and he’s also Chairman and chief commentator of Money magazine.

Yep. Doesn’t get much better folks!!

Well, maybe it does… because we’ve got him for over 1.5 hours of rock-solid gold!!! (Yep. You might need to listen to both ways on your commute!!)

The even better bit?

… Paul comes with real life money hacks AND he’s also a ripper storyteller!

Do you have some doubts on a particular property that you own?

Are you wondering if you should let it go?

Are you interested in using data to back up this decision?

 

If you answered yes to all of the questions above, we want to hear from you!

We are looking for 100 volunteers to trial and kick the tyres for this new software that we are hoping to launch soon but we need a good sample size of property owners to test it first.

We can’t give anymore away but this beta testing will require you to fill in 3 surveys. You’ll need to spend no more than a couple of hours for this testing, spanning across a week.

And of course, as part of a recognition and appreciate to your time and effort, we will be giving you a FREE ONE MONTH Access to our Location Research Software, LocationScore!

Thank you for being our New Software's Tester! Here's a quick 3 question questionnaire to get you warmed up.

Once you complete it, you will be sent access to the beta test site.

  • Are you currently in the decision-making position on whether you should sell or hold a property?

  • In your own words what answers do you want to find out to help you make this decision?

  • Without currently knowing what exactly this service/product does yet - if it could show you how you could improve your financial position by over $50,000 in the next few years, what do you think would be a fair price to buy it for?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Episode 199 | Q & A – Future Proofing your Portfolio in a Changing Market

Folks, with State Election around the corner and the Federal Election less than a year away, it’s time to future-proof your portfolio.

The market has changed and will continue to change. We’ve also got some challenges in the Macro landscape as well — lending regulations, potential changes to negative gearing and interest rate rises, just to name a few.

So you might be asking yourself, “How is it still possible to build a property portfolio and earn $2K per week in passive income with all of this other stuff happening?”

And you’ve got a good point. There IS a reason to be concerned, but this does NOT mean you have to abandon ship altogether. Far from it.

So in today’s episode — before our Surprise Superstar Guest joins us next week for our 200TH EPISODE!! — we’re going to answer some of your questions about how to do exactly this.

 

This is just a few of the things we’re discussing:

 

Before we get to the questions, Ben is coming to all of you who are based in Perth! As the Chair of PICA of course. Details below:

When: 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm AWST, Tuesday, 4 December 2018
Where: Queens Building, Lecture Room, Level 1, 97 William Street, Perth, WA
Cost: FREE!

Finally, the questions we’re answering today…

Question from Mirella:

When talking about earning $2,000 per week in passive income is this measured before or after outgoings; eg. rates, land tax, etc.?

 

Question from James:

Trying to build a portfolio whilst the future of interest rates and a change in government and a change to negative gearing could potentially impact the market. How should one approach 2019?

 

Question about market sentiment/right time to buy from Kirthika:

Thanks for this session guys! Quick Q… there’s a lot of media activity discussing the impending drop in property prices over the next few years. As a result, my husband and I are worried about investing now? in the event we could buy for cheaper in a year! What are your thoughts?

 

Question about increasing cash flow and paying off debt from Nipper:

I feel confident with how to select investment grade properties. But I’m not so sure on how to hold them then get to the cashflow stage. Do you propose changing loans to P&I or selling down some properties to then pay off the debt of others, or something else?

 

Question about having no equity from Dan:

You mention using equity. If you don’t yet have access to equity… do you have any tips to get started?

 

Question about realising equity for cash flow purposes from Kosta

Do you ever recommend using some equity release to pay the monthly repayments to improve cash-flow?

 

 

 

Episode 198 | Nine Ways to Navigate the Credit Crunch

Folks, if you’re playing the long-term game in property investing, you’ve got to know how to navigate the credit crunch!

And what do we mean by this??

… You MUST build financial muscle in order to succeed at the game of lending! Because folks you can NOT save your way to a passive income. You just can’t.

What you need is access to credit and an ability to optimise this credit so that it works in your absolute best interest.

But of course, there’s an elephant in the room here, isn’t there??

The lending landscape has changed, folks! This can be seen from APRA’s lending restrictions all the way to the banks feeling the pressure following the Royal Commission — both of which are just the tip of the iceberg property investors are now facing when it comes to accessing finance.

So. Here we are at the messy middle…… how can YOU cut through these challenges and still get the lending results you need??

Well, we’ve got 9 Tips up our sleeve to help you do just this folks!!!
