    116 - A New Real Estate Investing Project

    116 - A New Real Estate Investing Project

    Hope things have been going well for you guys. Hope you're progressing in your life and your side projects, especially if you're still tackling trading or real estate investing.
    Trading and investing is a great gig if you can make it work and I'm hoping you guys are doing well in these and every area you're working on.
    On my end, I just got back from a vacation to Disneyland with my family. It was the 2nd time my family has been there and a good time was had by all in Anaheim. We also visited Warner Brothers Studios and Hollywood on the Left Coast. I did like the weather in Southern California and it's always good to get out of the routine.
    I'm feeling refreshed, but I was a little late in getting this podcast out to everyone this week. This will be the last podcast I plan to release for awhile on the Trading Story. I don't want to say this is the final podcast, but it could be. As you may know now, my attentions have already shifted away from trading into real estate investing. I may launch another podcast in the future. So make sure you stay subscribed to this podcast because I will update everyone if that happens.
    For those who may be interested, I'm mulling over a Christian apologetics podcast. If you have any suggestions about it, feel free to email me.
    Launching A New Project: REINomad.com But for now, I wanted to share another side project I've been working on. It's not a podcast, but something a little more simple. In addition to helping with marketing clients and growing their businesses, I like to start projects where they seem to make sense. Since pausing my trading efforts, I've turned my attention to real estate investing. Though I'm just getting started and I only have one investment property working right now, I think real estate investing is the place for me for the long-term.
    And I wanted to let my listeners know a few reasons why I think real estate investing is a good thing for you as well - assuming you want financial and location independence.
    That's why I launched a new website called, REINomad.com.
    This resource and email list aims to be a help to anyone who is interested in real estate investing "as a nomad". In other words, if you want to invest an opportunist and find the best real estate opportunities in the next town or across the country, that's what REI Nomad is about. The goal is for you to take advantage of real estate markets that are up-and-coming - since all markets are local - and profit while you focus on what you do best.
    And to get you started, we put together a free resource for you called "The 10 Ways To Invest In Real Estate Like A Nomad" over at...
    REINomad.com/TenWays/
    With this resource, you can be equipped to understand the best ways people invest in real estate when they don't live down the street. So check it out today.
    On Wrapping Up The Trading Story Podcast So as we wrap up this chapter of the Trading Story podcast, I wish you guys the best in every endeavor. If you like podcasting and have any questions, shoot me an email. I've enjoyed interacting with everyone. Shoot me an email for anything for that matter at brandon (at) tradingstory.com
    Do you know this podcast has been downloaded over 350,000 times! That means tens of thousands of listeners have found value in this information. And I'm glad to have connected with many of you. Appreciate all the support along the way and the encouragement. From where I sit now, I think this podcast has affected the course of my life and I hope it has been helpful to you too.

    115: Joe Fairless On Growing A Multi-Million Dollar Real Estate Portfolio

    115: Joe Fairless On Growing A Multi-Million Dollar Real Estate Portfolio

    Joe Fairless is a real estate investor. Joe invests in multi-family real estate with his partners now but he used to work in a NYC ad agency as their youngest VP. Joe hosts the world's longest running daily real estate podcast, Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever Show. Joe Fairless, welcome to the Trading Story podcast.
     
     
    Final Thoughts on Joe Fairless Interview We did it again - one more week of expecting something related to trading and you got to hear from another real estate investor. Not saying none of you guys can't be great traders, but there are other options for you. And Joe Fairless highlighted another possible avenue for you: real estate investing in multi-family properties.
    But regardless of whether you want to be a trader, a real estate investor, or something else, there is something to Joe's mantra. I'll let him tell it to you again...
    "My personal mantra is: "the secret to living is giving". I got that from Tony Robbins when he did a TED Talk. If you haven't watched it, I highly recommend doing so. He's a phenomenal story-teller and educator. And he mentions the secret to living is giving. I have that on my vision board and printed on my wall. That's the approach I take. And it's so obvious: you give one dollar and you get back ten in return. It might not be a direct cause and effect but over time it plays out time and time again."
    It's really amazing what Joe Fairless has been able to do in a such a relatively short amount of time. He has grown a real estate investing portfolio that's well north of $100 million dollars and he only started back in 2013 - a little over 4 years ago. He's a regular guy except for one exception: he gives. He gives his audience a podcast episode for the past ~1,000 days. That's a lot of giving. And he's getting something back in return for his efforts. A very lucrative career in real estate investing. Kudos to you, Joe. Thanks for your time.
    And thank you for your time listening to another non-Trading, Trading Story podcast. Some of you may be wondering if this will become a new habit - releasing more episodes. Sadly, probably not. But I thought I owed it to my audience to let you know what was going on and why I'm now sold on real estate investing over trading. If you're not, that's okay. Keep driving and something will stick and you'll do better than me. I'd love to see all of you guys succeed at trading, real estate investing, or something else where we're not working for the "man". 
    Action Item: Keep Driving The action item for this week is: keep driving.
    There's a reason you turned on this podcast and hopefully it's to get a little inspiration in your quest for financial and location independence. You know it's out there. Me too. I've achieved a bit of location-independence with my marketing business, though I just got on the road through real estate investing. I'm still going and you can too. Keep going guys - we're not dead yet.
    Until next time, all the best!

    113 – Five Lessons Learned When I Failed At Trading

    113 – Five Lessons Learned When I Failed At Trading

    Personal Update Focused on trading forex for 5 months: Apiary Fund & ProAct Traders
    Focused on trading futures for 2 months with another mentor.
    Paused all trading activities in November 2016. Two years focused on trading.
    I’m now focused on a new project: real estate investing.
    Lessons Learned Trading Mindset: Mini-business, chart patterns, persistence.
    Cutting Losses: Cutting the losses of a passion that hadn’t panned out.
    Letting Winners Run: Kept working on my marketing business that is growing.
    I am not a consistently profitable trader. Episode 0 & Episode 113
    Continuing Education: I kept learning and I was open.
    Shifting to Real Estate Investing (REI) It’s so similar to trading, it’s scary.
    Many of the lessons learned in trading translate to REI.
    Less competition and more obstacles may make a better market for you.
    Can use relationship skills.
    When Things Don’t Work Out Two reactions: Get depressed OR perform an After Action Review (AAR).
    Trading did not work out for me on my 3rd go-round as I had hoped.
    But it opened for me the opportunity for something new.
    “When God closes a door, he opens a window”.
    Maybe that’s something you need.
    Postscript: Why Not Continue Trading Story Indefinitely? Trading Story was supposed to be my journey to consistent profitability.
    Passion is what makes a great podcast. My passion has shifted to a new project and a new podcast.
    A brand new Real Estate Investing podcast at REI Nomad. This is where my Trading Story continues. I cordially invite you to join me on that podcast. The link is in the shownotes page. Or just go to REINomad.com.
    Call To Action If you fail at something (and we all do). Grieve the loss.
    But don’t stay there. Remember the reason you started this to begin with: financial and location independence.

Market Wizzard Part New...

Brandon well done!! New to Forex trading and have found these interviews very invaluable and full of wisdom. Thank you for doing this as this helps shorten the learning curve and provides an enormous amount of information bar none. Keep this going as its one of the best podcasts out there for traders. We need more interviews. Mahalo !!

checkmate king two ,

Too much irrelevant personal information.

I started listening to one episode of this podcast and I was very excited to get some good information and education out of it. Instead, it just drowned on and on about a trip to California, where he went to Disneyland, Warner Bros. studio and other things. People nowadays value time like no generation before them. I quit on this podcast. If one episode is like that, most likely, The others are as well.

My mail review ,

Slow speaking speed

Took 5 minutes to get to the point in a 16 minutes podcast .....way too many redundant information and speak too low
