    Demographics suggest that there’s going to be a skills drought, with Simon Kuestenmacher

    Demographics suggest that there’s going to be a skills drought, with Simon Kuestenmacher

    If there was a baby boom in the 1950s then there must be a baby bust in the 2020s as Boomers exit the workforce.
    No, it’s not that the Baby Boomers are expected to die in droves in the coming decade, it’s that they’re right now exiting the workforce at a faster rate than Millennials and their successors are entering the workforce.
    And this has only been made worse by our locked borders because of the pandemic.
    To understand what this means for our economy and our property markets today I’m joined by leading demographer Simon Kuestenmacher who’ll give us insights into his latest research into what’s ahead.

    Do you understand the 5 levels of investing?

    Do you understand the 5 levels of investing?

    In today’s show, I want to discuss with you the five levels of investing, a framework that I have created to help you understand where you are on your journey and to help you make sure you reach the top level as a successful investor.
    Then I’m going to share some interesting information with you about the tsunami of wealth Baby Boomers are expected to leave their children.
    Do you understand the Five Levels of Investing?
    If you want to become a successful property investor, you really need to understand the five levels of investing. I’ve created a model to explain the progression most investors take in their path to developing financial freedom.
    Level 0 – The Spender
    Level 0 are really not investors – they tend to be spenders and borrowers and as a result, end up with a high level of debt.
    A large part of our adult population falls into this category and they will never become wealthy unless they do something radically different.
    Level 1 – The Saver
    Most people who are not spenders will generally be what I call savers.
    Their main investment is their home, which they aim to pay off over time.
    Sometimes they save a little, squirreling away a few dollars of what’s left over after paying tax but in general, they save to consume, not to invest.
    They will get the most leverage by investing in themselves and getting a quality financial education and beginning to build a network of peers whom they can make the journey with.
    Level 2 – The Passive Investor
    Level 2 investors have become aware of the need to invest.
    They realize their superannuation won’t get them through retirement, so they learn about investment and accumulate assets.
    While they are generally intelligent people, they are still what I would call financially illiterate – they don’t really understand the rules of money.
    They must unlearn the flawed, incorrect, and misguided lessons they have learned about money and wealth from unqualified teachers.
    Level 3 –The Active Investor
    Level 3 investors realize that they must take responsibility for their financial future and become actively involved in their investment decisions.
    They become financially literate by building a knowledge base of investment strategies and techniques.
    Level 3 investors usually leverage the time and expertise of a network of industry professionals as they realize that they can’t do it all themselves.
    They also upgrade their network of advisors and peers, often joining a Mastermind group of like-minded people.
    Level 4 – The Professional Investor
    A very small group of investors move to the top rung of the ladder and become a Level 4 “professional” investor who has built and now manages a true investment business.
    A Level 4 investors’ property investment business has a substantial asset base that generates sufficient recurring passive income to pay for their lifestyle costs. They keep growing their investment portfolio whether or not they work in a real job.
    These professional investors don’t hand control of their investments over to others; they retain control whilst employing a proficient team: accountants, finance brokers, property managers, solicitors, and property strategists who have great systems that achieve repeated and consistent results, which are reliable and predictable.
    This gives Level 4 investors the freedom to choose whether they get up in the morning and go to work or not.
    Asset Growth first, then income stage
    It’s important to understand that the first stage in becoming financially free is to educate yourself; the next stage is that of asset accumulation – your job as a Level 3 investor is to build a sufficiently large asset base to fuel your “cash machine”.
    Then, only when you have grown a substantial asset base, do you transition into the cash flow (income) stage of your life as a level 4 investor.
    What is your Level of Wealth?
    Now it’s time for some home truths. How far up the Wealth Pyramid are you? Where

    How long will this property downturn last |The Big Picture Podcast with Pete Wargent

    How long will this property downturn last |The Big Picture Podcast with Pete Wargent

    Despite all the negative news in the media warning us of the worst property correction on record, my guest today Pete Wargent recently wrote a piece giving good reasons why our housing market downturn could be short-lived.
    Since Australia’s economy and our property markets don’t operate in isolation, each month, I take time out to have a look at the big picture, the macroeconomic factors affecting not just Australia but the world economy, in our attempt to give you a little more clarity on what’s ahead.
    Once again, we will take a deep dive into what’s happening in the world and Australia’s economy, and our property market.

    A bleak outlook for renters is good news for investors with Dr. Andrew Wilson

    A bleak outlook for renters is good news for investors with Dr. Andrew Wilson

    Australia’s property markets have experienced unprecedented demand over the last couple of years, despite tourists not coming from overseas, despite visa holders not coming, visa holders not coming, students not being here, and the borders being closed.
    And now despite the market cooling, rising costs and supply shortages are causing one of the worst housing crises in history.
    I don’t know about you, but I’ve been reading about families forced to live out of their cars, in camper vans, and even in tents. And these are respectable people with reliable incomes and good rental history to boot.
    Today I’m going to share a couple of segments to help you understand what’s going on.
    First, there’s a replay of one of my recent Property Insider chats with Dr Andrew Wilson where we share his latest rental reports and what we believe is ahead for rental markets.
    Then I’m going to share some statistics from the census, including one that created a lot of furore about why there’s a housing crisis when about 10% of properties were vacant on census night. I will give you some ideas to help you be a better investor.
    And of course, I’m going to share my popular mindset message.

So glad I found this podcast

I have been wanting to start investing for years and never had the confidence in the information out there until I found this podcast. I now listen to it daily, follow his property update Chanel and just had a chat to Steffi from metropole about starting our investment journey with metropole. I happy to say I look forward to working with his team at metropole!

Interesting

Michael talks sense and has interesting guests in particular Simon Kuestenmacher and Pete Wargent.
Michael always talks about Australia as “the Greatest Country in the world”. I find this annoying and a little ignorant. On what criteria is he basing this pronouncement. Is there a league ladder somewhere? It is a little narrow minded and indicates to me that he has never lived anywhere else. Everyone thinks their own country is good and are proud of it, there is no such thing as the greatest country in the world unless you are Trump or a similar world zealot.

Getting back on track

Hi Micheal,
I have accidentally came across your podcast.
I have listened to quite a few episodes and made a plan to listen to one per day during my early morning walk.

I throughly enjoy the topics and it made me to get back to property investment after a few personal event in my life that de-railed me from my reasonable progress of property investment journey.

What I am hearing is making perfect sense, I will start my journey again this time with Metropole guidance and looking forward to meeting Rita Thomas to discuss the strategic planing.
