Announcing the BiggerPockets Real Estate Investing & Wealth Building Podcast
If you're familiar with podcasts, feel free to ignore any of the basic advice, but for those of you who are not in the know, a podcast is essentially a radio show. I've wanted to put one together for many years now, and with the help of @Brandon Turner , I've made that desire a reality!
The largest marketplace for podcasts is on iTunes, a place I'm sure you're all familiar with, however, you don't need an iPod, iPad, iPhone, Mac or other Apple device to listen.
Simply go to our podcast:
Click on the show you want to listen to, then listen via the embedded player. You can also download the .mp3 file for that show below the player itself.
Otherwise, if you want to subscribe via iTunes, you can do that too.
The Inaugural Podcast: Building a Successful House Flipping Business and Losing Millions with @Marty Boardman
Today's inaugural show ( http://www.biggerpockets.com/show1 ) is a great one, featuring Marty Boardman. In it, we talk about his dramatic rise and fall in real estate, including how he lost $8 million dollars!
Additionally, we cover:
- The Best Advice he Ever Received about Real Estate Investing
- How to Find Local Mentors to Teach, Train, and Bring You Under Their Wings
- How to Quit Your Job and Become a Full Time Real Estate Investor
- Using The Four Flipping Boxes to Flip Houses
- How to Raise Private Money for Your Real Estate Investing Deals
- Why Wholesalers Do Not Need a Buyer
I was hoping you guys would start a podcast. Most real estate podcasts (that I have found at least) seem to focus on wholeselling or other "quick buck" strategies. I hope this draws from the diverse knowledge at Biggerpockets to provide investing information beyond what most podcasts provide.
(edit) I enjoyed the first episode and cannot wait for more. I left a review in iTunes as well. Good work guys!
@Eric F. - Thanks for listening! As you heard from the first show, this isn't about the get rich quick garbage, but about building solid foundations and strategies to help you be successful. I appreciate your feedback and hope you'll spread the word about the show!
Great idea guys! I was needing some new material to listen to in the car.
Thanks Brad! Let us know what you think.
Great job Josh!! 5 stars and positive comments left on Itunes.
Sweet! Thanks, @George Gray !
Excellent something other then the political banter in the car.. I also like Dave Ramsey and Clark Howard but I need some variety;) If it goes national I would be excited. Instead of Mad Money we will hear Bigger Pockets and create some new rockstars in the world of investing
Awesome, @William Bannister ! From your mouth to . . .
Thanks @William Bannister ! I, too, think that would be awesome. I use to wanna be a rockstar - but I just sold my electric guitar. So I'll take being part of the rockstars of real estate investing :)
That is the first podcast I have listened to in a long time (besides one on University of Kentucky sports and cigars) and I was very impressed. I gave up on real estate podcasts a long time ago after not being able to make it through the first 2 mins of any of them. I was very impressed with the hosts, the content, and the guest!
Great job Josh, Brandon and Marty. (oh, and I can play one hell of a cowbell)!
I'm glad to hear that we met your expectations, @James Vermillion ! I hope we can continue to meet and exceed them as we put out future episodes. Please do take a minute to rate the show and leave feedback on iTunes when you can. Thanks again!
I just provided an honest rating and review and would encourage others who listened to do the same!
Enjoyed listening to this at my desk yesterday morning. As much time as i spend on the road my ipad is full of podcasts and this one i will subscribe to. Great job guys.
BiggerPockets in the car and on the hiking trail. That was a great first episode. If you haven't listened, Marty tells about how he went up $8 million, down $10 million, and back up again. Check it out.
Thanks for the feedback, Jon!
Hey everyone - we're now up to 13 five-star reviews on the Podcast! Thanks for everyone's support! Here's to #14! (hint hint)
Great job guys!!
The podcast was informative and easy to listen to. I'm already looking forward to the next ones!!
Thanks @Zaid R. ! We appreciate the message and hope you'll also leave a review for the show on iTunes.
Otherwise, we've got a great next show scheduled to come out tomorrow, where we talk with @Karen Rittenhouse -- it is a fascinating discussion . . . keep your ears peeled for the announcement on our blog and newsletter.
