Ever wondered what an “authentic” real estate fix-up story sounds like, instead of the magical rehab stories that make things look way-too-easy on television? Good news, Carl and Mindy Jensen have done everything from house hacking, fix-and-flip, and buy-and-hold real estate investments. They are here today to share their real estate investing successes and horror stories, Carl’s final 1500 day countdown to retirement, and some practical tips if you are thinking about diving in yourself.
In our headline segment, we look at a business case study that clearly shows the problem around rising interest rates. Between the pandemic, rising rates, and a threat of recession, corporations are feeling the hurt. We dive into one industry’s debt, show you what this means for YOUR money, and share our tips to help you navigate the current economy. We’ll also answer David’s question about retiring with unused sick days and vacation time, and of course, we even left time for Doug’s trivia.
