Episode 350 | How BEN Did It: A Passive Income of $190,000 Per Year… At 50!

Meet Ben Kingsley – Oh, wait. You probably have.

Not Gandhi, the other one.

The co-host of this podcast?

Yeah, THAT Ben.

Today Bryce is INTERVIEWING him, which might sound a bit odd. But, stick with us, ‘cos we promise you it’s going to be an episode you won’t ever forget, folks!

Why? Well, Ben has practiced what he preaches. That is – he has personally built his own property portfolio, played the long game and for his 50th birthday this month, he will gift himself a passive income of $190,000 a year from it. Not bad, huh?

Portfolio, Done. Passive Income, Done. Lifestyle Design, Done.

Speaking of Lifestyle Design, this interview with Ben is taking place while he’s in the Kimberley, Western Australia! Turns out, he has – along with his wife Jane and their two boys – taken a 2-month sabbatical to their dream destination – something that was factored into their life and property plan many, many years ago.

Wait – they planned this holiday YEARS ago?

Yep, they sure did. And Ben is going to tell you exactly how he and Jane built their property portfolio to make certain it happened. (And how it helped fund the entire trip.)

In this “Never Before Revealed” episode, Ben is going to share his OWN journey to Financial Peace with you… and how he did it using the exact same principles and frameworks we teach on The Property Couch!

So, who is this wise ol’ mate, Ben Kingsley? And what can he share with you about his own journey to get here that he hasn’t publicly shared before? And can someone please tell us exactly what his portfolio looks like!?!

Sure. Strap yourselves in. This is a RIPPER!!

Episode 337 | The 4 Pillars of Money Health

Just like you’d visit a doctor for a physical health check-up, the same applies for your MONEY health!

In this episode we’re diving deep on The Four Pillars of Money Health — that is, the areas you must regularly monitor to take care of your money and, yep, create MORE of it so you can ultimately reach the summit of a passive income for life!

Here’s the deal…

A couple of weeks ago we did an episode on The Four Types Of Wealth and within that framework is, of course, “Financial Wealth” (what our entire podcast is all about, right!?!)

And if you listened to that particular episode, you’ll know already that within the area of Financial Wealth exists ANOTHER Framework – The 7 Grades of Financial Wellbeing

Well, Grade 4 (out of the seven) is Financial Stability – and this is the BASELINE of where you need to be at if you’re even remotely considering wealth creation!

Now, stick with us folks – ‘cos here’s where today’s episode comes in…

You CAN’T build a house of Financial Peace on poor foundations – so we’re giving you “The Four Pillars of Money Health” that sit BENEATH Financial Stability!

… Are you still with us!?! 😂🤯

Basically, today’s ep is a framework within a framework within a framework within a framework….

… And we promise it’ll ALL make sense once you listen!

‘Cos once you know this stuff, you’ll not only NEVER get a poor financial health diagnosis again… but also you’ll get the exact prescription to conduct your own Money Health check up so you move beyond Financial Stability and into a position where you can go ahead and create wealth for yourself!

These pillars are also the regular habits “everyday millionaires” start with… so please listen up!
