I’ve become a big fan of podcasts, specifically for apartment investing. They’re a great distraction when I’m working out or spin-cycling. They always seem to provide me with at least one insight on virtually every episode, some more than others. I tuned into one on BiggerPockets recently about gift-giving in the business world – phenomenal ideas! Another featured a sponsor for a deal I was already familiar with, and another was about LLC protection for your personal assets such as real estate.
These are awesome resources, covering so much ground. Even straightforward shows that just feature a different investor or sponsor with each episode are informative. Someone who has only completed one deal or a handful of deals is often so much more helpful than a seasoned coach. Their experiences, their agony, and their triumphs are fresh and relatable.
I get my podcasts from Stitcher but Apple, of course, probably has the largest selection. It would help your business immensely to be listing to these. Even more important, though, is to find the time in your day to listen to them, when you can be doing something else. Driving, exercising, eating, whenever you can, so it becomes a habit. Listen to them all – Jake and Gino, Old Capital, Best Ever, Multifamily Investor Nation, Whitney Sewell, Real Estate Guys, Michael Blank, Rod Khlief, they’re all very good. And a lot more.
And keep your notebook handy. Write things down. One good idea could make a huge difference in the outcome of a critical part of your business.
