Episode 210 | John Hartill – How to Recover from Making Every Mistake Possible in the Investing Game

Folks, our Summer Series continues with ANOTHER ripper guest! And not only is today’s guest a very special TPC listener (!!) but also…. he is a REAL LIFE INVESTOR!

But there’s a problem…

John Hartill has learnt a lot of things the hard way. Unfortunately, he made mistakes along the way that, if we’re being completely honest, have cost him a small fortune. Over his property investment journey (expanding a couple of decades now) John has been spruiked to, sold to and, sadly, bought really bad properties.

The fact is… He’s tried every property investment strategy under the sun — buying house and land packages, developing property, renovating, investing in positively geared property — you name it folks!

And as a result, John’s had to learn the true cost of holding property and what’s at stake if you get your advice for free, buy Off the Plan or jump in without the correct education to support you.

And he’s here to share his personal story so that YOU can avoid making the same mistakes.

 

Here’s the gold…

Episode 197 | Our Embarrassing True Stories: What Was Money Like in Our Own Lives?

Normally personal stories about money stay secret…  up until this episode!

The truth is folks — it’s not really the “done” thing to have a conversation about money, is it? Almost always, there’s this societal expectation to throw money matters — the real truth of your financial situation— off the table and bury it in the overflowing junk drawer.

After all, talking about money is embarrassing, right?

Well… not anymore!!

Today folks, we’re attempting to lead by example — so we’re simply going for it! We’re going to get real and vulnerable and we’re going to share with you OUR OWN that have shaped our relationship and habits with money.

In other words: we’re going to reveal what’s really happened in our life up until now (yep, this includes revealing some childhood influences), which might explain why we’re so obsessed with finance and on a two-man-and-a-couch crusade to help others excel in managing their own money!

So, yep. These stories include the good, the bad and plain embarrassing.

Ready to start the money conversation?

Episode 160 | The Power of Vulnerability when Looking for Advice – Chat with Karla

We’re getting real on the Couch today, folks. So if you’re in the mood for some solid learning, serious authenticity and a powerful view into what it’s like to be on the chair opposite us (or any other professional advisor), today is YOUR Day!

Because in this episode we are introducing a very, very special guest (in more ways than one)…. someone who has personally reached out, sat down and met with one of our advisors…. Karla C.

Except Karla…. she didn’t like what we had to say!

Why?

Well, this is where the power of vulnerability comes in………

 

[Two words that come to mind: “Profound change.”]

Full disclosure: We normally avoid mentioning our company, folks….. but we’re huge believers in Karla’s story and its benefit to you is too great for us to hold back! Plus, Karla’s “tell all” is a gift needed for life, not just property investment.

 

Before we unfold the layers of vulnerability though, just a little shout out to those of you WHO LIVE IN SYDNEY & WANT TO WORK WITH US! We’re after experienced Property Investment Advisors, Mortgage Brokers, Financial Planners and, just maybe, Accountants! So if you’re all about helping others, influencing positive and profound change to people’s lives, and the idea of a challenging and rewarding role makes you ticklish with excitement ….. wow us with your resume & cover letter here!

Episode 082 | Q&A – Great tenants vs higher rents, Investing in property overseas, Managing leverage and more

It has been 3 weeks since our last Question and Answers episode, so it’s about time for another one! Thank you again for sending in your questions.

For today’s podcast, we will be answering these questions:

  • Question on tenants vs rents from Mark: Is it better to keep a great tenant on a lower rental, than push for a great rental return and gamble with the quality of new tenants (and subsequent vacancy in between.)
  • Question on exit strategy from Tom: Hi, I would like to hear more about exit strategies when time is not on my side. I have just turned 50, with my youngest child in yr 12 and eldest living in eastern states. My principal place of residence (PPOR) is paid off (value $1.1M) and I have 2 investment properties with a combined value of $1m. But an investment loan of $1.2m. The reason for the negative Equity is that I have been capitalising. The investment interest whilst I directed all rental income into paying off my PPOR. So now I need to know what is next. My goal is to retire or work reduced hours in and on a corporate role by age 55. I am presently in a well-paid job paying about $220k and have about $270k in super, which I am contributing up to the max.$35k pa. I can’t get my headspace around what to do next. any suggestions would be appreciated.
  • Question on investing in property overseas from Sean: Would be great to hear your thoughts about investing in property overseas as part of a portfolio, particularly NZ. There’s some “wave rider” type activity gaining momentum around Auckland, which has become a heated market it seems.
  • Question on career in property investing:Hi Ben & Bryce, Firstly I would like to say you guys are doing an awesome job with the podcast. Have been listening from the start and as a born and bread Victorian now living in NSW I love the footy talk!!!!I would also like to congratulate you on your book “The Armchair Guide to Property Investing“. I will be handing it out to numerous friends and family as I believe it is gold when starting out and not knowing which direction to go.So some background on my situation. I started educating myself 2 years ago with every property podcasts/book I could find and now believe I have the foundations for property investing going forward with the right team around me (coach, broker, accountant, solicitor & acquisitions team).We moved to the Hunter Valley to set ourselves up to give us more “choices” in the future. I am currently on a high income of $140k as a coal miner but to be honest, my heart isn’t in it anymore and I don’t enjoy my work (except the pay each fortnight).The reason for reaching out to you guys is because we currently have a 3 year plan (possibly shorter) to move back to the Geelong area to be closer to our family and also closer to Melbourne because we live and breathe AFL. By then we plan to have 2-3 good capital growth properties in our portfolio in major cities utilising the high income (currently in process of acquiring property in Brisbane as I write this email).By the end of 2016 my goal is to complete a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management because I believe that everything revolves around finance in creating wealth through property. I am also working towards 1-2 weeks work experience with my property acquisitions team to see how everything operates on the ground.

    My question to you guys is what else would you recommend I do over the next few years in preparation to help transition into the property investing line of work (educating others to create wealth or something down that path).

     

  • Question on paying down debt or invest from Ian: Good afternoon gents, thank you for sharing your wisdom. I’m 40/67 episodes so far and still loving the insight. A question for your podcast: Getting rid of debt 1st vs investing 1st: As a health practitioner with approximately 5K of discretionary income/month would you recommend chipping away at approximately $35K of bad debt mixed between high and low interest accounts and then seeking professional aid such as yours to become a 1st time rentvestor or seek out assistance and attempt to send that bad debit into some sort of mortgage? Love your work and your banter.
  • Question on Property Investment Advisor or Buyers Agent first from Paul: Hey Guys, Love the podcasts and your book. Great help for us newbs. I have just started my journey into the world of property investing. After listening to you guys plus reading your book I have taken my first step and started meeting with mortgage brokers to get an understanding of where I stand financially. One of the brokers I meet with was from your team at Empower Wealth. He was great and very professional. My question to you guys is once I have my finances ready to go do I need to be looking to meet with a property adviser or a buyers agent next? Your advice on this would be great. Keep up the great work!
