We’re picking up where we left off last week… how to create $2,000 per week in passive income and actually design the lifestyle you’re proud of (instead of just daydreaming about it)!
This means we’re riffing through a stack of listener questions, including how to speed up the process (and what’s at stake if you do), the true power of compounding and the ‘secret sauce’ of property investing that has nothing to do with the amount you earn.
Plus, we’ll explain WHERE the smart money goes and why there’s always a “Flight to Quality” (something we’re currently witnessing… even during a pandemic!).
You’ll get the pros and cons of active vs passive investing, a mindset reframe on how to look at debt and, excitingly, a case study demonstration of capital growth versus yield! (yeah, Ben did a bit of homework for this one… shock horror!)
We obviously blew out with our answers (as per usual) so it’s another epic episode, but we’re positive the science of achieving $2K per week as a passive property investor (aka. reaching the summit!) is going to help set you up for life and take your property, finance and money management knowledge to the next level 😉

And here are the questions!
Question from Esha Frykberg
Any advice for those who want to be able to semi retire on less with the portfolio sitting in the background working towards that goal? i.e. having a portfolio that is making $1k/week by age 50 with the aim to be making $2k/week by 65, or is this just going to be the natural progression of a maturing portfolio. Would like to be able to gradually have the option of winding back work rather than working hard for 20 years and stopping.
Question from Craig Chalmers
If looking to keep a $2k per week passive income in retirement. When do you switch from growth to yield assets for passive income? Or do you purchase both during acquisition phase as a balanced portfolio and then sell down the growth asset to realise the gains and pay off the yield asset for holding for passive income?
Question from Steve Gilmore
In retirement would you prefer $2 million worth debt free, or $4 million with 2 million debt?

Question from Steven Jermey
Tips on speeding up the process on one income, ie 70-90k pa. I’m onto 3rd property (cheeper properties while renting. Interested on your take for the lower “average” income. For me it’s taken a long time, and balance between quality of life now (with a family) and looking to the future.
