Big Goals? Here’s How to Get Your Spouse or Partner on Board with Jay and Wendy Papasan BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast

    • Investing

Today’s show is centered around a big question we get ALL the time...
“How do I get my spouse/partner on board with my real estate investing goals?”
It’s the perfect time of year to think through exactly how to do that, and we have the perfect guests to offer some advice.
Jay and Wendy Papasan run an annual couples’ goal-setting retreat in Austin, Texas. Today, they walk us through the exercises they use to help couples (and business partners) confront uncomfortable questions and get on the same page.
Oh, and if you don’t know who Jay is, check out BiggerPockets Podcast 113: Becoming a Millionaire Real Estate Investor Using The ONE Thing with Jay Papasan and BiggerPockets Business Podcast 06: How to Manage Your Time Like a Millionaire with Jay Papasan.
Jay's wife, Wendy, is a real estate broker who leads a high-performing team that’s expanded into four cities.
In this episode, you’ll learn how to initiate a goal-setting conversation with your partner, what kinds of settings work best for this exercise, what questions to ask, and which timelines to use.
Also, stick around through the end to hear Wendy’s tips on using leverage and a “not to-do list” to apply your time and energy more efficiently and be happier.
This is a profound episode with two real estate rockstars. If you enjoy it, do us a favor and share it with YOUR spouse or partner… or pass it onto a couple who you think might benefit.
