The property industry is unregulated. What this means is that there are more than a few Bad Guys – and not just the sharks in white shoes – out there who slither under the radar and sell dodgy advice that, quite frankly, moves their wealth position and not yours.
This is what keeps us up at night. This is what keeps us showing up every Thursday. This is what started this podcast in the first place. And if you’ve been with us for a while, you’ll already know that The Property Couch is “the people’s podcast” – we’re on a crusade to even the playing field between sly property spruikers and everyday folks who simply want to move the dial on their financial position and create a better life for themselves.
So today – to mark our FIFTH BIRTHDAY! – we’re going out on a limb and doing something a bit different…
Here’s the deal… there’s no doubt that there IS bad advice out there. We wish it wasn’t that way, but it is. There’s no use running from reality.
So in this episode we’re actually diving deep on some experiences we’ve never spoken about before. We’re going to give you a look into what life was like for us BEFORE we started The Property Couch and what pushed us over the edge to start educating folks about how this industry really operates. You’ll get the backstory into how we found our voice, what we did to make sure people heard us and why we care so much about all this property, finance and money management stuff in the first place!
And because our folks have kindly given us the airtime and a reason to show up for the last five years — a quick shout out to ALL of you and a HUGE thank you for your titan-strength support over the years – we’re going to unpack what we’ve learnt from doing the podcast itself… and how all this affects the guests we handpick, the topics we cover and, most importantly, the FRAMEWORKS we share with you! We’re leaving no stone unturned… and – word of warning! – we’re ripping through this one as we are covering A LOT in this bowel-over ep!! (Ben actually reckoned this one would go for 2 hours if we didn’t get a wriggle on!)
