It was great to hear how much we're on the same wavelength when it comes to our views on risk aversion in personal finance. Morgan firmly believes in a patient and sustainable approach, steering clear of the allure of quick riches. While it might seem less flashy on paper, it’s important to understand that long-term stability and financial resilience should be our ultimate goal.

 

In this conversation, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:

 

  • Predictions vs. Preparation: We explore how news stories can impact the economy and why economic forecasts often fall short. Morgan makes a compelling case for focusing on preparation rather than following predictions.

  • Financial Resilience: Morgan provides valuable insights on maintaining financial resilience, including minimal debt, a significant cash reserve, and a portfolio of long-term assets built to endure surprises.

  • Innovation in Challenging Times: Explore the correlation between innovation and challenging times, particularly during economic depressions. Morgan elaborates on the rapid progress of solutions in such circumstances.

This episode was recorded last year, since then Morgan has a new book coming out November 7th -  ‘Same as Ever’ he’ll also be coming back on the show in the next few weeks to talk about it, but in the meantime go back and check out a YouTube video we made about ‘The Psychology of Money’.

Welcome to Part 2 of Mark Jenney’s story!

In Part 1, Mark talked about growing up homeless, dropping out of highschool, how he started 30 plus companies and sold over a BILLION dollars worth of products online.

 

Now, we’re diving into Mark’s life TODAY — creating luxury Airbnb properties and how he keeps these one-of-a-kind places completely booked up year-round!

 

Head over to Mark’s twitter to check out photos of these Airbnbs — they’re UNREAL.

 

If you’ve ever wanted to learn about what it takes to invest in and develop luxury Airbnbs, you’ll love this episode.

 

In this conversation, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:

- How to ALWAYS bring 5-star consistency using a 30-point checklist

- Which property markets are no-goes and Mark’s strategies for sourcing properties

- And why Mark filters every life choice through a 1-10 scale (hint: if it’s not a 9 or 10 then DON’T DO IT)

 

Enjoy those 3 things… plus a bunch more ear nuggets along the way.

In today’s episode, I talk to best-selling author and YouTuber, Tiago Forte.

After years of struggling with a chronic illness that no specialists could find a cure for, Tiago created his own process to research, collect, and organize information so he could figure out how to live a healthier and pain-free life.

That experience led him to write his first best-selling book Building a Second Brain, which helped Silicon Valley businesses, NASA scientists, and everyday people just like yourself reach their greatest potential. 

Now, Tiago has published his second book, The PARA Method: a simple and intuitive four-step system that helps us sort all the information flooding our brains from the digital world so we can live better, smarter, and more fulfilled lives.

You can check out the PARA method at www.ForteLabs.com/Books

If you’ve ever wanted to learn about how best-selling books BECOME best-sellers, you’ll love this episode.

In this conversation, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:

  1. How long it ACTUALLY takes for non-fiction books to hit peak popularity (it’s WAY longer than you think)
  2. What is the REAL money-maker when you write a book
  3. And the ONE critical promotional tactic that all authors miss out on!

 Enjoy those 3 things… plus a bunch more ear nuggets along the way.
