    EP269 How Laundromats, Hair Salons and Car Washes can Diversify Your Rental Income Streams with Keith Leimbach

    My guest today has spent the last few years building and acquiring small businesses and real estate investments to create diversified income streams.  He’s invested in franchises, hair salons, laundromats, short-term rentals, car washes, and other assets with lucrative returns but not a lot of information available on how to get started.  Luckily, he’s been documenting these experimental investments along the way and will be sharing the details with us today.
    Keith Leimbach has served as COO and CEO of several companies and he spent 30 years in the corporate world.  He served on a US Presidential Advisory Committee and hosts the “Diversified Income Experiment Podcast”.
    Today Keith is going to open the books on his investments and take us on a deep dive into investing in Laundromats, Hair Salons, and Car Washes.  He’ll go into the compelling financial reasons these assets offer superior profit potential, the cost of build-out, expense ratios, and challenges of the different client or end user.
    It’s extremely difficult to find real world information on these types of investments and you’re definitely going to appreciate how transparent Keith is in sharing his data and experience.  You’ll also discover which asset class is Keith’s clear favorite.  You can find out more about Keith by website or email:

    EP268 How He's Raised over $42 Million from Friends and Family to Invest in Apartments, Hospitality, Office, NNN Lease and Cannabis, with Al Vardya

    EP268 How He's Raised over $42 Million from Friends and Family to Invest in Apartments, Hospitality, Office, NNN Lease and Cannabis, with Al Vardya

    I’m excited to be talking with a good friend and mentor of mine today about raising equity from investors.  Al Vardya successfully exited a 26-year career in the Information Technology Industry and began investing in Real Estate back in 2011.  He started with single-family homes that he still owns and manages, and then began investing in commercial real estate such as Class B Multifamily, hospitality, and office buildings.
    One of Al’s many strengths is that he has created and maintains partnerships with sponsor groups syndicating private placement deals.  Al has also built a family and friends network of investors providing capital for these syndications.  He invests both as a limited partner and also co-sponsors some of these deals as a General Partner.
    To date, Al has raised over $42 Million in investor equity across 37 projects, 12 of which have been exited for an average annual return of 37% to his investors.
    Today we’re going to discuss what qualities Al looks for in his sponsors and the type of groups and asset classes he prefers to invest in.  He’ll also share how he built his network of over 120 passive investors and how he communicates and educates them in the opportunities he’s pursuing.  You’ll also get some incredible insight into the trends and new types of investments Al is targeting for 2021, including new apartment development in Montana and Triple-Net Leases in the Cannabis Industry.
    Whether you’re raising money from investors or looking to invest passively in other people’s deals, you’re going to love listening to what Al has to say.  If you’re an accredited investor and would like to get in touch with Al, you can do so by phone or email: 248-444-7670

    EP267 How She Went From Being Homeless to Building a 250–Unit Portfolio and a $14M Development with Terrica Lynn Smith

    EP267 How She Went From Being Homeless to Building a 250–Unit Portfolio and a $14M Development with Terrica Lynn Smith

    My guest today can best be described as someone who has overcome great odds to achieve incredible things. 
    Terrica Lynn Smith is a real estate broker and investor holding over 250 properties in Louisiana.  She’s the developer of a $14Million mixed-use community and founding partner of one of the largest private real estate crowdfunding companies in her state.  She also has created her own board game that she designed to teach development concepts, and she’s been invited to the White House.
    Terrica has also had to overcome enormous difficulties and challenges, including growing up in the foster system, homelessness, and Hurricane Katrina.
    Today Terrica is going to share how she was able to get her real estate license after failing the test many times, how she realized that 3% commissions weren’t going to cut it, how she sought out a particular type of client, and why most of those clients left her when she made a pivotal business decision.
    We’ll also discuss Terrica’s rehab projects, the board game she developed to teach development principles, and the mixed-use $14Million development she’ll be breaking ground on in 2021.
    I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Terrica and hope you’ll be as inspired by her story as I was.  You can find out more about her and her businesses through the following websites:
