  • Today, let’s talk about real assets and real relationships, Wall Street investing versus Main Street investing, and the concept of syndications with Russel Gray.

    Real estate is a real asset. It’s as tangible and physical as gold, oil, and other things people use and depend on in the real world. On the other hand, owning a share of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds are claims on wealth, but they’re not real wealth. So, invest in essential things to build a resilient real asset portfolio. And if you want to scale faster, invest in real people and unlock private capital.

    Don’t Miss this year’s Secrets of Successful Syndication on September 16th-17th!

    Key Points from This Episode:

    Russel defines real assets. Real estate is tangible. Stocks, bonds, or mutual funds are claims on wealth but they aren’t real wealth. When times are tough economically, investors must focus on things that are real and essential. Housing combined with leveraged debt is the foundation of a resilient real asset portfolio. Russel talks about an instance when he lost control of his debt which resulted in losing control of the real estate. Russel wrote a book entitled, “How to Hedge Against a Falling Dollar.” How to multiply the purchasing power of your cash. What is one characteristic Russel looks for in a business partner? Russel shares how he and Robert Helms met and the backstory of The Real Estate Guys podcast. A special gift for Capital Hacking listeners! Wall Street investing vs. Main Street investing. Main Street investing is more personal. It has a small-town feel. Russel talks about the syndication business. When you create a syndication business, pick your advisory team well, even if you have to pay more. The syndication business is in dire need of ethical competent operators. People think it’s hard to go big. But it’s actually hard to be small. When you’re small, you don’t have economies of scale. The market is so big, there’s plenty of room for everyone. Russel explains the concept of syndication. In Wall Street investing, Wall Street funnels down the money to Main Street by originating loans. The money comes from Main Street, goes through Wall Street, and comes back down to Main Street. Main Street investors can invest directly in Main Street real estate projects through a capital aggregator or the syndicator. A syndicator is like a banker without the regulation. Where would Russel invest if he were to invest in the future? Russel’s tips on how to pick a market.

  • Be inspired by today’s guest, Joshua Oak! He’ll share three capital hacking strategies that helped him fund his deals. His first attempt to raise capital failed, causing him to lose a great deal which he still regrets up to this time. But he didn’t stop there.

He’ll also share how, just by talking to people about real estate, he came across a 12-unit apartment deal. He blended his cash with human capital and became successful even though he bought it at the beginning of Covid in March 2020. They’ve had these apartments for two years, and it has cash-flowed like crazy! Listen to his story now!

    “Anybody can do this (podcasting). I mean, I don’t have a college degree. I’m a firefighter. I’m not even a computer guy. So, you know, anybody can do this. It’s just getting the education. And frankly, podcasting is the best platform to do so. I’d like to think I have a college education for free through podcasting.”

    About Joshua Oak

    Joshua’s current investment portfolio includes partnerships in a 12-unit apartment complex and 5 single-family homes. The 12-unit complex deal took creativity to put together and formed a $20,000 personal loan from Josh’s coworker to pull it off! It is a fantastic deal and has provided Josh cash flow every month and solidified his desire to be financially free with real estate. He also owns 5 single-family homes as a 50% partner. These houses were his ‘foot in the door’ to real estate investing.

    Josh loves real estate. He got his real estate license in 2017. His current strategy includes working on a cash-out refinance on the five houses and trying to save as much money as possible to take advantage of any opportunities that are about to present themselves, given the current state of the economy. His future goals include working on syndications or partnerships for larger investments, gaining experience with podcasting, and expanding his network.

  • In this episode, Amit Gaglani will share why you should be part of an investor community. Amit recalls how he met Josh and secret-shopped their properties to evaluate their performance. Now, Mr. Gaglani is part of the community as the new Director of Growth for Accountable Equity!

    Josh and Amit will discuss the advantages of investing in real estate over the stock market, the impact of culture within the business, the real essence of accountable equity, recession, and how to fight inflation. Listen in!

    Key Points from This Episode:

    One of the reasons why people like joining an investor community is they hate getting stuck in the roller coaster ride that is the stock market. The other reason is people like the feeling of being part of something bigger where their money directly affects a community of people while earning passive income. Investing in passive income lets you live your lifestyle at your own pace. Passive income is automatic cash that goes right into your bank account; It is money you can see and feel, not just reinvested dividends. Amit describes how great the organizational culture within Accountable Equity is. Culture is the core business value that we all need to double-check. Josh and Amit dive deep into the meaning of accountable equity. What does the expression “the first bite of the apple” mean in a business or real estate setting? Amit shares his thoughts on recession and inflation. We need a FIST to fight back the inflation – Fighting Inflation Strategically Together.
