Episode 85 Fail Fast, Fail Forward, Fail Frequently with Special Guest J. Massey
J. Massey is the CEO and Founder of Cashflow Diary, a training and development brand for building short-term rental entrepreneurs. Before Cashflow Diary, J. raised capital and invested in traditional real estate (single-family homes, note brokering and holding, cell phone towers, commercial real estate, and apartment buildings). Eventually, he built his real estate investing training program to share what he learns continuously through his years of successful, real-world experience owning hundreds of traditional long-term housing units. When one of his students asked him what he knew about the world of short-term rentals, the answer was not very much.
Once J. started learning about short-term rental strategies, he saw a world of opportunity in front of him. He built his very own 34-unit(46 bedrooms)-and-counting short-term rental business from scratch — which he still owns, grows, and operates — and has shifted his Cashflow Diary brand to focus exclusively on building and training short-term rental entrepreneurs. Now he’s built a community of thousands of like-minded people from 16 countries that he learns from every day and shares his knowledge through his Cashflow Diary podcast, YouTube channel, Facebook groups, and annual Short-Term Rental Summit training events.

Episode 83 If James Bond, Tony Robbins, and his University Professor was one you would get our Special Guest Marco Robert
Marco Robert is an international business consultant and inspirational speaker. Whether he’s shining on stage in front of thousands of people in Florida, advising members of a board of directors in South Africa, or coaching the CEO of a company in Malaysia, he can be described as a result-driven-disrupter. Equipped with the BOSS, his proprietary business framework, he challenges the status quo and finds solutions to the toughest business challenges.
His entrepreneurial spirit was seeded at a young age as an apprentice in his family’s business. Later it sprouted on the benches of academia and finally blossomed through nearly three decades of business experiences.
A cross between James Bond, Tony Robbins, and my favorite University professor. He lives the high-octane life of a jet setter. At any given time, you could run into him on a flight from San Francisco to Singapore or a train from Zurich to Paris. He speaks several languages. His suits are tailor-made in Asia and South Africa. And he is an adept of single malts whiskeys and an erudite wine connoisseur.
He’s a socialite who loves the company of others, but for a few months every year, he isolates himself at his lake house, hidden somewhere in Northern Canada, to research and write.
An unequaled business master, he understands all the different facets of business better than any of his contemporaries. Whether talking finance, leadership, customer service, re-organization, sales & marketing, operations, or any of dozens of business topics, Marco holds himself with confidence.
