452 | “We made $400k tax free from Reno’s!”: How this TV Popstar Built His Flourishing Portfolio – Chat with Jason Bird

Meet Jason Bird, today’s super special Winter Series guest. Although, this probably isn’t the FIRST time you’ve ever heard of him because today’s guest is also… 

Former Scandal’us pop star from the 90’s hit show Pop Stars!! 😮  

Yep. We got to sit down with an incredibly humble and inspiring former pop star with a truly mind-blowing story to share. 

We’ll be starting right back at the beginning, before the fame and worldwide tours, to when recessions and failing family businesses were his reality… 

Tune in as we follow Jason’s inspiring rise to fame as he becomes an overnight sensation, lives the glamorous life of a pop star, and how, with its abrupt end, he pivots to build a 3 property portfolio (and growing!).   

And did we mention, he flips a house earning him $400k…. tax-free?!?!?   

It’s true. Today’s episode will have you on the edge of your seat as we get a sneak peek at how much Australian pop stars really earn, see the TRUE value of transparent money conversations and the terrifying consequences of having a negative credit score (Seriously, tune in to 27:48 now folks).  

As always, today’s episode is another jaw-dropping story of perseverance, hard work and humility.
