  • In this Monday Minutes, I reveal my seven-stage process for conducting due diligence from the passive approach to investing. This is NOT your typical "high-level" review. This is the process that I've used to invest in over 35 syndications over the last decade. Even if you ask 2-3 questions about each topic, you'll be ahead of many of the passive investors out there.

    This MM episode is a summary from my keynote at IIREC a few years ago. If you listen carefully, I'll share with you how to get access to that presentation (along with the slides).

  • The world’s most interesting man is back!

    Doug Casey has returned to discuss his bleak view of the future, and where the opportunity might be created out of those bleak times.

    For those of you that don’t know, Doug Casey is well-known author, speaker, investor, and speculator. He has been featured across 100+ mainstream and alternative media sources, and is the author of several books, including his fictional book, Assassin.

    In this episode, we’re going to discuss…

    Why the US is a uniquely favorable place for investors and entrepreneurs, but why the path we are on might lead us to ruin. Why the whole idea of secession seems to be so obvious to a few people, and wildly outlandish to so many What will the next correction look like, and where will the opportunities stem from it?

    Whether you are a speculator, investor, or just a heretic in general, there is never a dull moment when Doug Casey is a guest on the Cash Flow Connections Real Estate Podcast.

  • In this Monday Minutes, I outline one of the MOST important risks that passive investors never think about when comparing active investments to passive investments.

    From my perspective, this is one of the most compelling reasons to be a passive investor.

    ❌ It’s not diversification…

    ❌ It’s not the lack of time required to be a passive investor…

    ❌ It’s not the ability to participate in all stages of the cycle….

  • As surprising as it might seem…

    The world of real estate crowdfunding wasn’t truly invented until 2012/2013.

    Sure…

    “Pooled investments” (syndications) have been around in the US for quite some time, but the ability to combine the online space with the ability to raise capital wasn’t fully “unleashed” until the JOBS Act was ratified.

    This Act certainly had a significant impact on the world of commercial real estate, but what are the implications of these changes, and how can we benefit from them?

    What does this impact look like as this sector matures, and more and more people start participating in this incredible investment vehicle?

    Will the recent popularization of 506(c), Reg A+ and Reg CF create a new stage in the story of crowdfunding real estate?

    Today, we are joined by Adam Gower who is the author of Real Estate Crowdfunding: Unleashed. After conducting an incredible amount of research on the matter, Adam is here to provide some important updates that I am sure many listeners will be eager to learn, and incorporate into their thinking.

    In this episode, we are going to discuss…

    How are institutions reacting to the influx of accredited investors, and how is this reality shifting the investment space as a whole? In which geographic locations are accredited investors most eager to invest, and does the data suggest that they should be investing there? Are investors getting more accustomed to 506(c) offerings, or will 506(b)s continue to dominate the market?

    From my perspective, those who are well-positioned in this space stand to create massive profits over the next few years, as the sector explodes with interest.

    I intend on being one of those benefactors.

    Do you?

    If so, tune in to hear what the data suggests about the future of crowdfunding.

  • In this Monday Minutes, I discuss two lessons I learned from the CEO of Realty Mogul, one of the largest real estate crowdfunding portals in the world.

    The first lesson is about YOU…Your journey. Your ability to expedite your growth curve, and refusing to settle for “just ok.”

    The second lesson is all about your TEAM.

    How can you attract top-tier talent?

    How can you retain them?

    I’ll discuss two occasions where I learned a lot from someone who has done an incredible job of both at the highest of levels.

  • Like many of you, I’m extremely bullish on the world of private real estate deals.

    As people continue to have success investing in the space, it will continue to grow and grow. If this continues, it might be highly favorable for us as early investors. (Yes, we are still VERY early!)

    If this happens as I think it might, it’ll likely mean more buyers and sellers in the space (more liquidity), lower exit cap rates, and generally, a more precise marketplace. Of course, it might get a little competitive as well!

    However, one thing that can slow that growth is for passive investors to have poor investment experiences.

    Sure…

    Some deals simply have challenges. That’s the nature of investing in real property which is occupied by real tenants.

    But some of the challenges in the space are related to the operators themselves.

    So, how can we limit the likelihood of investing in deals with poor operators?

    Today, we are joined by Byran Ellis, who is an experienced real estate operator and who has raised tens of millions of dollars of private equity from investors. Over his decades in the industry, he has developed systems and processes to conduct accurate and efficient due diligence for passive investors.

    In this episode, we are going to discuss…

    Several tips and tricks for how passive investors can “trust but verify” without breaking the bank A wild horror story that could have easily been avoided! How real estate sponsors can create a principle-based business, so that you are never concerned that you are going to be “found out” by your investors

    If you are a passive investor who’s looking to increase your level of sophistication, this is an excellent opportunity to learn from one of the best!

  • In recent days, people in power have discussed proposals as ludicrous as taxing unrealized gains, banning the investments in private placements with tax-advantaged accounts, and implementing a federal 43.4% capital gains tax.

    From my perspective, it always feels like these seemingly outlandish proposals are meant to get a pulse on how close the citizenry is to tolerating the new level of taxation and set the stage for what might be soon to come.

    Given the way this conversation is going in the media, I’ve found myself asking a question that I’m sure many of you have been asking as well…

    How on earth did we get here, and why is this happening?

    Today, we are joined by Domic Fisby, the author of several books, including Daylight Robbery: How Tax Shaped Our Past and Will Change Our Future. The book reveals many truths about taxation, as well as the implications of the actions central banks have taken in recent years.

    In this episode, we are going to discuss…

    What the history of central banks and taxation tells us about war, and why it’s impossible to stop (despite being so unpopular) Why the pronounced boom/bust cycles that we are taught are a result of “natural” capitalism, might in fact be directly related to central banks who control both the money supply, as well as the interest rates applies to that money How the digital world has impacted taxation and created an opportunity for corporations to implement tax structures that the middle class can’t

    Like all significant historical events, both the Great Recession and Covid-19 have created wild and uncertain times.

    These uncertain times create an opportunity for regulations, money printing, and taxation to be installed that will likely impact our world and economy for years to come.

    Tune in to see how we got here and what it might mean for our future.

  • In this Monday Minutes episode, I provide my perspective on the age-old question…

    Should you focus on institutional investors, or accredited investors?

    We’ve all thought about it!

    Wouldn’t it be nice to receive a $10MM check from ONE investor?

    Maybe!...

    But those check sizes usually come with strings, as well as some significant implications about how your lifestyle design.

  • Anyone interested in protecting and growing your investment portfolio would be wise to pay attention to the ebbs and flows of three significant pillars of the world of finance…

    Money Banking Economics

    If you are hyper-focused on your specific investment strategy and fail to recognize how money, banking, and economics can impact your investment strategy, you are likely to get blindsided by an event that “no one could have seen coming.”

    Today, we are joined by one of my favorite podcast hosts, M. C. Laubscher, the host of the Cash Flow Ninja. After recording over 700 interviews on his podcast, he compiled his favorite 21 cash flow niches and put them into a new book titled The Best 21 Cashflow Niches.

    In this interview, we are going to discuss the top three niches that you can quickly implement to protect and grow your portfolio in this economic climate.

    In this episode, we are going to discuss…

    One strategy that M.C. uses to prosper during this era money printing (and why he doesn’t plan on selling anytime soon!) How our guest remains liquid while still achieving 8%+ interest by investing in stablecoins – cryptocurrencies pegged to the US dollar Why M.C. is such a big proponent of the infinite banking strategy, and how he uses it to create an ocean of cash flow that he controls

    If you find yourself constantly being concerned about what will happen when the “music stops,” this conversation will provide some strategies for you to protect your financial life, while still creating an opportunity for lucrative returns.

    Tune in and you’ll see what I mean!

  • I’m not trying to be alarmist, but this is a BIG one…

    Currently, several changes are being proposed that could have a disastrous impact on the world of self-directed retirement

    As some of you might have heard, it was recently revealed that Peter Theil has a self-directed IRA worth several billion dollars.

    This inspired politicians to clamp down on the world of SDIRA’s, and now the entire industry could be in jeopardy.

    In fact…

    If these proposals are enacted, it could mean the end of the world of self-directed retirement as we know it.

    Not only would they impact the mega-IRA owners like Peter Theil, they would affect a HUGE percentage of the listeners of this program.

    Today, we are joined by Kaaren Hall, the president of uDirect IRA Services, a self-directed retirement account provider, to discuss the matter and what you can do.

    In this episode, we are going to discuss…

    Would these proposals end our ability to invest in private placements within our SDIRAs? Would we be forced to sell our interest in private placements? What would that mean for the real estate market as a whole? The proposal includes an END to IRA-owned LLCs. What would this mean for those who have one?

    Typically, I try to avoid paying much attention to “purposed” regulations, but given that most politicians don’t understand the nuances of this space, getting ahead of this before it gets any more steam could be a VERY good idea.

    Take Control,

    Hunter Thompson
