Episode 352 | Healthy Houses: Is This The New Way For Property Investors? – Chat with Amelia Lee & Raphael Siket

Is your property HEALTHY? Look, this question probably isn’t what property investors commonly ask themselves… but after listening to this episode, we reckon’ you’ll start thinking completely differently about the health of your home & your investments!!

Full disclosure: our minds were blown! Sure, we all spend a significant amount of time in our homes, which has obviously increased since the great ‘work from home experiment’… but once you learn exactly how your property affects your physical and mental health… well, wow. This will TOTALLY shift your thinking!)

Here’s the deal: Today’s topic is largely around ‘healthy’ homes – with a unique spin on what’s called ‘passive houses’– that is, ultra-low energy buildings that are truly energy efficient, comfortable, affordable and ecological at the same time…

And ‘cos this is such a special episode, we have a guest co-host joining Bryce today…. PLUS, a very, very special guest!

Co-hosting today’s podcast as part of our AweGuest series is Amelia Lee, the architect behind Undercover Architect, an award-winning online resource to teach folks how to design, build or renovate their homes. To give you an idea, she’s been in the industry for over 25 years and has solid personal experience in the trenches as a “serial renovator” and has worked on more than 250 projects and counting.

And here with an interview that you won’t ever forget is Raphael Siket – Director of Ecolibria – a leading building biology service in Australia. He is a qualified building biologist and has completed the most comprehensive course of study currently in his field with an Advanced Diploma in Building Biology, a Bachelor of Commerce and – wait for it – is a Certified Mould Testing Technician (ACES) and past president of the Australasian Society of Building Biologists.

And, here’s where it gets EVEN MORE interesting……

… Let’s just say some guy called Bryce Holdaway first met Raph Siket under personal circumstances he’d rather not have been in…. and, yep, it had to do with the HEALTH (or rather ‘unhealth) of his home.

Oh, and get this… Raph has PERSONALLY built his own passive house… from a once- volume-built home. Yep.

Are you ready to see things COMPLETELY differently?

Tune in now for one heck of an episode – let us know what you think 😉

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!!
