Ethical Advice?

Let me begin by saying I love virtually everything I've come across with BiggerPockets. I've spent countless hours in their online forums, reading their books, and listening to virtually all of their podcasts. So far I've enjoyed the content from the new BiggerPockets Business podcast, but the intro to episode 3 really rubbed me the wrong way. The hosts were talking about buying what sounded like thousands of dollars of home decor items with the intent to use it, then return it after they had sold their home (after talking at length about how it probably wasn't necessary in the first place). That feels super slimy and against all the shady real estate practices BiggerPockets has tried to fight against. I understand that under the terms and conditions it's allowed, but that is definitely against the intent of those policies and recommending that strategy to a mass market seems irresponsible. Plus, not all returned items are resold, returns often end up in landfills creating unnecessary waste and increasing overall prices to genuine consumers. Gotta say, this was poor form, especially given that there are companies that rent staging furniture/décor. Disappointing.

Strategy vs Tactics

I have seen people really strong at developing killer strategies for their business but get stuck on how to distill that down to a tactical level. I have learned from people that are amazing at executing tactics and getting the day to day accomplished in their business. J and Carol are amazingly strong in both and have helped me focus on what’s really important in my business. Highly recommend to anyone who needs a little fire lit underneath them!

Extremely Valuable

The Scotts offer invaluable advice and insight. As a 14 year veteran of flipping houses, I still have much to learn and to improve upon. Thank you!
