REFP Podcast Guest

If you’re interested in being a guest on one of the city-specific Real Estate Financial Planning podcasts… first, THANK YOU! …we’re happy, excited and glad you’re here!

Plus… there is some kinda, sorta… really… some important stuff for you below to read. 🙂

Once you’re done reading the important schtuff below, there is a BIG BLUE BUTTON for you to schedule a little one-on-one time with me (which will probably be one-on-one time with the REFP podcast listener community).

So, read on… my real estate investing friend… read on…

You Gotta Sorta Agree To These Crazy Things To Be On The Podcast As A Guest… Them Be The Rules!

Hey… (actually hay is for horses but enough of that silliness for now)… please do read the following “dotted” items… they be important.

If you can agree that they be OK, we’re some MAJOR STEPS closer to having you on the podcast. If you can’t agree to all of them… what is wrong with you? No seriously… if you can’t agree… why can’t you agree? These are things we need you to agree to before we can unleash you on the public as a guest on the city-specific REFP podcast(s).

Here be the “dotted” items.

  • Since this is… kind of… a podcast about real estate investing… you gotta, sorta have something valuable to share with our real estate investor listeners, you know? Not something valuable FOR YOU… something valuable FOR THEM.
  • You need the tech, Bill Gates! If you ain’t got a computer with a screen that we can record our chat for the podcast, it is really going to be hard to have you on the podcast.
  • You won’t need to worry about paying for the service that will allow us to record your screen… we will take care of that (screen sharing/meeting software). Chillax, brah, we got that for us.
  • Sucky audio on a podcast is just… well… sucky. If peeps can’t hear you or the audio quality is horrible, that’s not good for the listeners. If it ain’t good for the listeners, they’ll be voting no to having you as a guest. So, to have goody good audio, you probably should have a microphone. Or, at a minimum… something like your headphones from your iPhone with a microphone. We can have you either call into a telephone number for your audio on the recorded screen share… so you can use your headphones with a microphone with your phone. Or, if you got a headset you can use with your computer… the screen share/recording service will do that as well. No matter how we slice it, you got to have a way to get clean audio.
  • Speaking of clean audio… you need to be able to have a distraction, noise free time when you schedule the recording. I strongly *like* little kids and love the pets and animals, but if they’re going to be loud for the recording, we should probably not schedule a recording with loud stuff in the background. Pick another day/time where it will be quiet.
  • And while we’re on the clean theme… since we are going to be recording your screen… make sure you “put away” all your sensitive or private or confidential or adult-only stuff on your computer before you get on to screen share. I don’t want to see your bank account info, photos of your gigolo or mistress (or worse), plans to take over the world, secret messages to the aliens abducting your local livestock, etc. I prefer to live in a constant state of blissful denial about such things and I’m not good at editing such things out after the recording.
  • Captain obvious here, but if you want to be a guest on the podcast, we got to record it. So, we do intend to record it. Also, to be on the podcast you got to give us the rights to publish the episode on the podcast and market the crap out of it if we get off our lazy heinies and do such things. If we can’t publish it and market it, please don’t book it. That would make my cute dog, Echo, sad.
  • We don’t do “live without a net”. I’d clam up and get too nervous. So, we record all the episodes and then publish them after, so nothing is broadcast live.
  • Don’t say crazy stuff. I have a friend—you know who you are—that likes to try to shock me by saying crazy stuff. We only need one friend like that in our lives… and, as I mentioned, I already got one. Keep it professional… keep it pure.
  • If I suck… or if something ain’t amazing from the recording… we do reserve the right to just forget about the recording (like eighth-grade Prom night) and not publish it. Our choice and for our own reasons.
  • Ain’t no direct money in this for me or for you. I won’t be getting a paycheck for recording this with you. Neither will you. Who knows… you may become famous from being on the podcast and that money’s all yours, but we won’t be paying you to be on the podcast, or when others listen to the podcast or anything like that.

You’re Amazing and People Deserve to Know It

You’re amazing. I know it. You know it. People listening to the podcast should know it.

You should get some promotional benefit from being on the podcast as guest. However, this ain’t no hour-long 2 AM infomercial about face cream. You want to mention what your biz-nass is… OK. If you start repeating yourself repeatedly over-and-over… those be fighting words. Don’t be doing that Boo!

I pledge allegiance to the LISTENERS. Without them, this podcast ain’t nothing.

You’re amazing. You’re awesome. Let people know about it… once. We can put a little something something on how peeps can contact you, find you, check out your amazingness in the show notes as well. I’m more absent-minded professor than elephant, so just remind me to put your URL and contact info in the show notes after the recording.

Do I Keep Repeating Myself?

Is there an echo, echo, echo, echo, echo in here?

You may hear these questions repeatedly across episodes and guests on this podcast.

A Boy Scout (“Be Prepared”), might think about how they might answer these questions… BEFORE… we do the recording. It is not easy to go back with that amazing reply (“ahhh… I should have said this or that”) once the recording is done.

So, you may or may not hear these questions:

  • What is your name and where are you from (city)? You are not required to reveal your last name… although many guests do reveal their last names.
  • What is your preferred real estate investing strategy?
  • Deals:
    • What kind of deals have you done in the past?
    • What kind of deals are you doing now?
    • How do you analyze deals?
    • What makes a deal a deal for you? Your deal criteria. Which metric and the threshold for that metric?
    • How are you finding these types of deals?
    • How often do you find these types of deals?
    • How much does it cost (time and money) to find these types of deals for you?
  • Risk:
    • How do you measure risk? What are your favorite measures of risk? What are reasonable numbers for evaluating risk using those numbers?
    • How do you think about reserves? How much? Dollars/months of reserves?
  • Financial Independence
    • Mathematically, how do you define financial independence?
    • What is included in that calculation? What’s not included in that calculation?
  • How do you think about equity? Return on equity? Selling properties to leverage up?
  • If you have other questions you think we should discuss… be sure to include those when you schedule your time to record.
