Episode 113 - How I got my start in rental real estate

I realize that it takes time to build up wealth, but you gotta start somewhere. Although I had years of business experience before I bought my first rental property, none of that experience actually yielded real wealth. It wasn’t until I spoke with another business owner I was friends with, and realized he bought his own commercial building that he operated in, that I realized the building was where the money was. Like McDonalds, it wasn’t about the burgers. It was about the real estate. That began my start in rental real estate investing, and it worked out pretty good for me.

Episode 112 - I’m in debt.  HELP!!!!

I was recently talking with a self-proclaimed personal finance coach, about being interviewed on his podcast. He wanted my input on how people who are in debt can deal with it. The interview didn’t happen, because he thought my methods were unusual and wouldn’t work for his audience. But it got me thinking – who is this audience, and why the hell are they in debt in the first place. Then I realized it is 99% of the people in the USA, and it is no wonder they are in that position. Rather than trying to fix the immediate problem, no one wants to address the recidivism of debt. Unless you master the art of restraint as a way of life, you can't win here. Debt will return to you as quickly as you expunge it without the right training.

Episode 111 - Communism by proxy

I’ve been realizing just how statistics don’t tell a complete story of the decline of civil liberties, individual freedoms and life quality. For most people who have some memory of the cold war, or are students of 20th century history, it is well accepted that giving up all power and control to the state, in return to get your physical needs met, is a deal with the devil that has continually failed. Yet we seem to have done this without even realizing it. I call this ‘Communism by proxy’. Let this episode be a warning about our current world and society.

Episode 110 - Personal morality & the shackles of a job

At some point in all of our lives, we are faced with challenges of being asked to do something we don’t agree with. Organizations are notorious to be populated with individuals of differing levels of ethics & morality, and yet the challenge to protest against doing something you believe to be morally wrong is a deeply personal thing. In this episode we will explore how you can mitigate against the risk of having your personal morality challenged with work.

Episode 109 - Run away from early retirement

It is somewhat amusing to read through the countless posts on various forums on Facebook on the early retirement movement. I use the term “Movement” intentionally because this has become more of a cult that follows a fictional future event. That is not to say that the intentions are bad – it is that often the endpoint is flawed.

Episode 108 - A life success methodology

Having spent a career as a software engineer, I encountered a world of problems in hundreds of different industries. I knew nothing about the industries at all, but what I did know was that a method to gather their needs, analyze them, design something to solve their needs and build to that design worked. We call that a “methodology”. When I looked outside of the engineering space, I found a few implementations of methodologies – in particular, business methodologies used in large organizations. I guess I naturally use methodologies without thinking, but it provides a way to codify something repeatable. In this episode I’m going to offer you a methodology that I use, that has helped me become and continue to be unconstrained.

Episode 107 - Is Australia becoming a totalitarian state?

In this episode, I’m going to address a question I have received numerous times in the past week “Is Australia a totalitarian state?” It is one of those episodes that I would have preferred not to record, but it is... well... complicated. But as I am an Australian, I guess I can tell you both how it feels to lose your freedoms, but also what lead up to this mess. I hope that people take this information for what it is - I’m sure I’ll upset some people, and maybe I’ll help educate others. But I’ll let you be the judge.

Episode 106 - How Ernie beat cancer in Mexico

What if you decided to take the plunge, quit your job, be unconstrained, buy property in a far away land, and in the process of doing this, you get diagnosed with cancer? Well on today’s show I’m talking to my friend Ernie Baca, a US expat who lives in San Miguel de Allende, in which exactly this happened. Ernie will tell us how the US medical system failed him, how he took on the battle with cancer in Mexico, and how he won that battle. This is a detailed accounting of the whole ordeal, it will get emotional at times but it is a testimonial to a guy who is a real hero and shows that taking back control of your life is your best path to truly being unconstrained.

Episode 105 - Your right to healthcare

In this episode, I continue the "Unconstrained Bill of Rights" series to healthcare. Why those that don't have it, are seriously constrained and those that think they have coverage, may be right in line for the worst wake up call of their lives.

Episode 104 - How insurance can screw up your life

We have all been told and encouraged to buy insurance. Insurance for health, your assets like housing, real estate, your car, etc. In many cases, insurance is mandated. “If bad things happen, you better have insurance.” But it has created a society of irresponsible and ill-prepared citizens who don’t have any idea about personal responsibility and are ill equipped to manage their lives. In this episode I’m going to deep dive the concept of insurance and the promises & lies we are told about it.
