Episode 254 | NRL Star Unpacks His Money and Property Story – Chat with Matt Srama

Top athletes often have a big spike in their income over their lifetime. That is, at the top of their game they’re looking at earning some serious coin… but beyond that… their income can plummet right down, sometimes to ground zero. And things get a bit tricky if the skills they possess aren’t necessarily transferable to the workforce too!

So, folks, what we want to tackle in today’s episode is this… how does a top athlete — or anyone on a fluctuating income for that matter — juggle a small window of time where they’ve got access to more cash than they’ll potentially earn in the future?? How can they maximise this so they can set themselves up BEYOND their time in sport?

Here to help us answer this question, and unpack his money and property story, is someone who has been there, done that… Matt Srama!!!

For those playing at home who might not be familiar with who Matt Srama is… he’s a professional NRL rugby league player for the Gold Coast Titans who had to park his career at the ripe young age of 26 due to injury. Meaning… after a solid career in the NRL, he’s personally experienced with what it’s like to be back “in the real world”! And he’s going to share A LOT of this gold with you today… and folks… you’ll see why what he’s learnt has set him up to work in a development role for the Gold Coast Titans, where now he helps other young players navigate this space!

Oh, and if you’re one of our folks who… ahh… aren’t particularly chuffed with our footy banter… …then you can breathe a sigh of relief!! Because we promise this ep is NOT just sports talk! There’s some pearls of wisdom in here that we can ALL learn from and apply in our own lives 😉

Pssst… and, yep, we got a new intro!!!

 

Folks, we’re doing Relay For Life!!

On October 26th our office is donning our runners and active gear (let’s be honest… ol’ mate Kingsley will probably where his black and white stripes) to participate in Relay For Life to help raise much needed funds for Cancer Council!!

Our goal is to crack $5,000 so we can help fund ground-breaking research into new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer! So if you’d like to chip in — even if it’s just a couple of bucks — we’d love it if you could donate to our team here.

Episode 250 | Roger Montgomery – Chat with Australia’s Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is probably the greatest investor in the world. And when we say “probably” we really mean…“is”.

Sure, Buffett is estimated to be worth $US83 billion (not incl. the billions he’s already given away to charity)…… and, yep, he sure did make the majority of his wealth after his 50th birthday.

The question is… HOW did he become a self-made billionaire????

…… Value-investing!

In other words: he invested in stocks that were priced for LESS than their true worth. And he held onto them for the long term. That’s it.

So as a very special treat for OUR 250th EPISODE… WE’VE GOT “AUSTRALIA’S WARREN BUFFET” in the house!

And that brings us to today’s guest….

Roger Montgomery, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Montgomery Investment Management, which is a Sydney based specialist boutique equity manager that manages $1.5 billion on behalf of private investors, their advisors and families. Through a simple, common and time-tested philosophy, Montgomery manages several VALUE-ORIENTED FUNDS focused on the various aspects of quality to generate superior return over the very long term.

Before we unpack all this completely, Roger’s 26-year background in financial markets includes Equity Analysis, Equity and Derivative Trading and Investment Banking. After founding, listing and selling a financial services business and listed investment company, Roger established his boutique investment management office.  In 2010, he published his first best-selling book, Value.able – How to Value the Best Stocks and Buy Them for Less Than They’re Worth.

… the clincher, folks?? … His book, of course, sets out his three simple steps for value-investing and online trading.

So. Shall we get on with it… and simply chat to Australia’s version of Warren Buffet????

… You betcha!!!

Episode 249 | The 4-Step Framework To Renovate or Build Your Home… AND Enjoy it! – Chat with Amelia Lee

Considering renovating or building your own home? If so, this is the perfect episode for you!! Here’s why…

We’ve got 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 the best part? Amelia’s on a serious mission to take the “bamboozle” out of the renovation, building and design process!

‘Cos let’s be real folks… these projects can often be draining on the ol’ tolerance levels/bank account/relationship health/overall health… BUT  as you’re about to find out… it doesn’t have to be like this AT ALL!!

(Ben’s now wishing he chatted with Amelia BEFORE he attempted three renovations on the one house!)…

‘cos, what d’ya know… it turns out that renovating and building your own home can actually be…. enjoyable!!

And all you need to do is follow Amelie’s simple, 4-Step Framework…. BEFORE you even pick up a hammer, tear down a kitchen sink or stub your toe on an exposed nail, cursing and questioning why you ever took the project on. (And/or telling yourself “never again!” like our mate Ben… who went ahead and did do it again AND AGAIN, oblivious to the fact that this wonderful framework existed.)

Learn from Ben’s mistakes folks — avoid hemorrhaging cash.

Go get your overalls ready…. this is going to be fun!

 

The Top SEVEN Takeaways…

  1. What does building and renovating with “intention” look like?
  2. How can you stretch your dollar further?
  3. Who do you need on your team?
  4. What are the big slipups people often don’t think about?
  5. How do you find a decent builder?
  6. What things are the top considerations for investors and home owners?
  7. Would an architect ever be an owner-builder? (and Should You???)

Episode 245 | From Motor Mechanic to Selling James Packer’s House! – Chat with Michael Pallier

Some stories need to be heard to be believed! And the story we’re about to share with you is indeed one of these… ‘cos today’s guest went from being a motor mechanic to selling some of the most expensive properties across the country… yes, including… the home of Australian billionaire businessman and investor James Packer!

Joining us on the Couch today is Michael Pallier, Managing Director of Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty — an elite agency that handles the sale of luxury residential homes and rural properties throughout NSW and the ACT!

To give you an idea of the calibre of the properties Michael sells… well, folks… he’s just sold his EIGHTY-SECOND property valued OVER $9 MILLION (oh, and Packer’s property went for a cheeky $70 mill)!!

His sales history has included…

  • The most expensive home ever sold in Australia
  • The most expensive home ever sold at auction in Australia
  • The most expensive residential land ever sold

So. Pretty impressive stuff, right? But what we really wanna know is… … how???

How on earth did a motor mechanic all of a sudden start selling luxury homes? And who are the people who are forking out some serious cash for these properties?

And, of course, what can we learn from Michael’s secret to success?

Psst… as mentioned in today’s ep, here’s the house he’s currently selling: https://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-nsw-vaucluse-131386806
