Episode 334 | Bernard Salt: The BIG Shift In Australian Property!

If you listen to just one episode, please make it this one!

Folks, today we are chatting with one of our very own virtual mentors (of all time!)… BERNARD SALT!!

Yep. You’ve probably heard us talking about Bernard on the podcast before – indeed, he has formed a lot of our own views about where the demand for property is heading.

In a nutshell: if there is one person on earth who deeply understands the intricacies of Australians and what drives people 1) to this country, and 2) to make specific property and lifestyle decisions, it is this man!

(And if you know these insights… you’ll begin to see where the property price increases are likely to occur, right?!!)

It obviously goes without saying that over the decades we’ve absolutely read and reread (and dog-eared the pages) of Bernard’s highly-regarded book (just one of many) called “The Big Shift”.

Yep. Big Guest.

Bernard Salt is widely regarded as one of Australia’s leading social commentators by business, the media and the broader community. He draws on a range of data sets to interpret social change now into the future. He argues that social and cultural change are powerful forces that are reshaping the way we live, the way we work and even how we form relationships. He was awarded the Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the 2017 Australia Day Honours and was a partner of KPMG until his retirement in June 2017, and still acts as a special advisor to the firm. Between 2011 and 2019 he was an adjunct professor at Curtin University Business School.

Now Bernard is the Managing Director of The Demographics Group, and he writes weekly columns for The Australian that deal with social, generational and demographic matters.

Essentially… Bernard is the Go-To Guru on how statistics tell human stories and what the data suggests about key future trends!

Tune in now – ripper episode, folks! 🤸‍♂️

RBA February 2021 : “Up, Up & Away” For The Aussie Property Market…?

This video features Ben’s update on the Reserve Bank of Australia’s cash rate, and because it is the FIRST cash rate announcement for 2021 — and a significant amount has happened between his last RBA video until now — he has a lot to share with you.
And one of those things is very, very exciting indeed.
It just might have a bit to do with, well, double digit growth for property prices…

 

And because a significant amount has happened between the last announcement until now (locally here in Australia AND globally)… Ben has a lot to share with you!

The three big themes covered are:

🔥 Equity Markets – What’s Happening & What’s to Come?

🔥 Has Australia Pulled a Rabbit Out Of The Hat? 🎩🐇

🔥 Is It “Up, Up & Away” For The Aussie Property Market…?

 

p.s. Click here to read the full IMF report that Ben was referring to in the video.

Episode 323 | Rising From A Decade Of Addiction: The Phenomenal Property Investment Story You Have To Hear To Believe – Chat with Sam

There are stories you hear about that stay with you for the longest time. Stories of triumph, stories of heartbreak, stories of beating the odds. Personal stories so authentic and transparent that, no matter what, hit your core and you can’t forget.

This episode is THAT story. And today’s remarkable guest is Sam, a Couch Listener who is as inspiring and impactful as they come!

Seriously. This is one of the BIGGEST transformations – both the biggest financial AND life transformations – we’ve heard on the podcast, and indeed will go down as one of our favourites… ever.

Meet Sam .

Over four years ago, life was very different for Sam. For almost a decade she struggled with mental health and substance abuse… to the point where she was caught in a revolving door of psychiatric hospitalisation.

Since high school she has battled with mental health challenges, which continued for 9 years, while her struggles with illicit substances lasted for about 7 years…

Obviously, and quite understandably, you can imagine that financial matters weren’t exactly a priority. Let alone the thought of investing in property!

Fast forward to today, and Sam’s life is “we have no words” different. A PHENOMENAL turnaround you just have to hear to believe, folks!

Oh, and just FYI… Sam is a young single woman on a modest income who has never known ANY other property investors… yep, that’s ON TOP of her incredible backstory.

Just listen to it. You’ll be blown away.

We know we were.

 

P.S. This is the LAST EPISODE in our 2020 Summer Series… and while we’ve absolutely loved each and every one of our guests, we reckon we might’ve saved the best ‘til last.
