Episode 214 | Fiona Bengtsson – From Near Bankruptcy to 11 Renovations and counting!

Folks, there are some stories that are just meant to be told… and listener Fiona Bengtsson DEFINITELY lives one of these stories!

Here’s the plot line…

Fiona, a teacher by trade, and her husband Andreas, a tradie, had three kids and a small business when things started to go pear-shaped. With their company growing faster than it could fund itself, Fiona and Andrea began feeding their OWN money into the company, hoping the return would pay off. Instead, what happened was this…

They borrowed money to pay off borrowed money. They dug into the gut of their personal finances and entered a debt spiral so out-of-control that Fiona actually stopped sleeping at night. The stress and the embarrassment entered their family home, took up the space in the pantry where the groceries (which they could no longer afford) sat… and the pressure of it all silenced the real conversations between family, friends and, even worse… each other.

Rock bottom was their reality.

BUT — as Fiona is bravely about to share with us — in several years they ended up flipping this debt-spiral on its head, revamped their financial situation and are now ON TOP.

The question is… how on earth did they recover from very-near bankruptcy???

 

Here’s the gold…

Episode 213 | Jane Slack-Smith – How to Adjust your Renovation Strategy for 2019?

Guess who’s back folks??!

… Our very dear friend, Australian Property Expert and THE person you want on your side if you’re planning on renovating for profit… Jane Slack-Smith, Founder of Your Property Success and The Ultimate Guide to Renovation!!!

Not only has Jane built an impressive multimillion dollar portfolio of her own, but also this ex-Explosive Engineer (she’s a very smart cookie) has been equally successful at transforming her own clients’ lives, particularly when it comes to property investment education and strategic renovation.

We’ll say it another way: there’s no one quite like Jane in our industry — she’s grounded in the foundations of property investment and she definitely knows her stuff.

And, yep, you might remember her from Episode 61 | Finding the right property education and renovation tips – Chat with Jane Slack-Smith.

Episode 209 | Veronica Morgan – From the Coalface of the Sydney Property Market

With 2019 officially off the ground, we thought we’d organise a reunion with our good friend “Ronnie”…  A.K.A the one and only Veronica Morgan, who is ABSOLUTELY qualified to give you the heads up on how to find an investment grade asset in this Buyer’s Market!

( Shhhh… don’t tell her we called her “Ronnie” here 😉 )

 

Folks, if you’ve been listening to us for a little while now, it’ll come as no surprise that Veronica Morgan was Bryce’s co-host back in the days of Location, Location, Location Australia and Relocation, Relocation on Foxtel’s Lifestyle Channel! Yep, you might have heard her previous eps on the Couch — Episode 76 | Building a property portfolio after the boom  and Episode 161 | How to Buy Property Like a Pro!

But this (and the friendly banter) is only half of the reason we love listening to what Veronica has to say about the Aus. Property Market — put simply: she’s an ace Buyers Agent on the grounds in the Sydney market!! Which makes total sense as the Founder and Principal of Good Deeds Property Buyers, a Buyers Agency specialising in the Sydney market! Plus, Veronica’s also a QPIA, a clever property investor and key note speaker and industry writer!

Oh, and a little birdie told us she has her OWN property podcast, The Elephant in the Room, which see co-hosts with Chris Bates!

So if someone knows the Sydney market, it’s Veronica!

Before we crack open the can of gold, just a quick shout out that Bryce’s brand new show Escape from the City AIRS TONIGHT!! So if you’re around, flick on ABC at 7:30PM!!

 

What’s in store today??

Episode 208 | Tom Panos – Making MORE Money While You Sleep in 2019

Happy New Year Folks!!

And what better way to kick off the FIRST DAY of 2019 than with a brand new episode on our Summer Series??!! Not to mention, we’re also dropping the secret of how YOU can make more money in this year!

To help us welcome in your year of wealth is Tom Panos, Real estate coach, trainer and Founder of Real Estate Gym who has been an active property investor for the past 25 years!

If you missed his earlier episode on the Couch — Episode 120 | Secret to Making Money While You Sleep —then it might pay to know that Tom’s also the co-host of the Million Dollar Agent podcast, Real Estate Advertising Director for News Corp and is one of Sydney’s leading Real Estate Auctioneers, as well as being a sought-after keynote for the Real Estate industry.

Oh, and just to add a bit more icing to the cake, Tom wakes up at 5am just so he can bring his best to life every single day. (With the shadow of New Year’s Eve still under most of our eyes, the discipline of this might feel MUCH more real, huh??)

In a nutshell: Tom knows his stuff. And he knows how to be the best at it.

So if you’re feeling a bit fragile today, all good, chuck in your headphones (maybe grab a glass of water on your way through), and just chill out. We’ve done the hard work for you 😉

 

What can you expect to learn?
