Episode 120 - The 4% rule - A round peg in a square hole

The round peg & the square hole – the concept of amassing liquid capital and saving, living frugally, and having a ‘nest egg’ as some magical method for a life of leisure, quitting the 9-5 workforce and retiring, seems to be the dream sold to all of us by the financial services industry. But it doesn’t work in a world of inflation, out of control govt spending and an economy that only survives based on consumption. Yet this is the continual debate on whether this method works, particularly for those in the FIRE community.

Episode 119 - How Jack bought 12 rental units in 3 years

Having gone through the adventures of buying rental real estate many decades ago, and now living a free and unconstrained life with no job because of it, I was interested to hear that I’m not alone. Today on the show I am joined by Jac k Allweil who, at the age of 32, is well on his way to building his real estate empire, having purchased property creatively and in only 3 years time, he has 12 rental units, with a goal to purchase 100 in 5 years. I think you’ll enjoy hearing his story.

Episode 118 - I bought a Bull Fighting Ring in Mexico

I told our Patreon subscribers about this, but it is now far enough along that I thought that it was time to share a personal story of a dream project. Partly because I wanted to invite you, the listeners, along on this journey but also because I want to demonstrate the adventures you can have if you are living an unconstrained life.

Episode 117 - A frank discussion on energy

Following the COP26 summit in Glasgow, Scotland and it seems, particularly in Europe, that the only discussion on the table is about ‘green energy’. Look, I get it. We humans are a messy bunch and we’ve decided to burn sequestered fuel (fossil fuels) rather than take advantage of other energy sources. But are the solutions being discussed really the answer?

Episode 116 - Inside the IRS with attorney Anthony Parent

Today on the program I have a special treat for you. On this episode, I am joined by Anthony Parent, the co-founder of IRS Medic law firm. Anthony is an expert attorney on tax law, specifically with helping US persons who are either thinking about expatriation, expats, or those that find themselves accidentally falling foul of the US tax system. But what came out in this episode is an ‘inside baseball’ view of the IRS, what being an attorney for his clients and dealing with the IRS is like, and just how this affects all of us. I think you’ll find this episode very special.

Episode 115 - Why won’t people go back to work?

Often it makes me laugh how the macro economists, government advisors and banking experts pontificate on supply chain disruptions, unemployment rates and other statistical data as they pour over spreadsheets trying to find the reasons why things happen. But the answers are simple for this – yet few people are willing to address the truth. Let’s talk about this.

Episode 114 - Being sustainable like a farmer in the 21st century

When people think about ‘farming’ they typically think about growing food or animals for consumption. Whereas that is an important part of human survival, to be completely self-sufficient and sustainable in the 21st century, it takes more than that. In this episode I’m going to delve into different aspects of farming and how you can do this yourself in the quest to regain control and your freedom back.

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.
