Geared for Growth is designed to assist Australian property investors to achieve financial freedom. The aim is to grab as many experts within the property investing space as possible and really tease apart their strategy and how they assist property investors to achieve financial freedom whether directly as buyers agents, or as expert accountants, brokers, conveyancer, whatever. We'll endeavour to cut through the sales pitches and get down to the nuts and bolts.

Good content, dodgy audio
Very interesting and informative podcast. I like the way Mike chats easily to his guests and draws out lots of good stories. My only complaint is the audio quality, which is often poor and out of sync.
