BTM174: Budgeting, Saving and Investing for Financial Freedom with Todd Miller

This week on the podcast, I interviewed a real estate investor/financial coach Todd Miller, who has spent the past 11 years building up his passive income portfolio to quit his job.

His strategy was straightforward and not at all different from the plans many of us make to leave our soul sucking day job.

You know… Budget, save, invest and retire early on the beach somewhere.

If only it were that simple.

See we can know the steps but not understand them. We can understand the steps but not implement them. We can implement them but not succeed.

There are numerous areas in which we can fall short of the ever elusive financial freedom that we desire.

But if you’ve known me for any stretch of time, you are aware that I’ve made it my mission to help all of us better succeed.

Rather than claiming life changing results in a single episode, we wanted to help you with the baby steps for budgeting, saving and investing in hopes that these small actions will have massive results for you later down the line. This is a good one!

BTM146: Profit 1st, the 20-Hour Work Week & a 4-Hour Body with Rocky Lalvani

Health, Wealth and Time Freedom wrapped up with a bow in 1 jam-packed episode…

You may believe that building wealth as an investor is all about about putting aside money for vacancy, repairs, and long term capital improvements, so the funds are there when you need them — this is 100% true and we’ll discuss this on today’s podcast, but that’s not all.

To have a better quality of life, that wealth should be about much more. How about wealth in time? Wealth in health?

Time freedom and health are just as important so Rocky Lalvani and I discuss how to achieve maximum output in each area with the minimum effective dosage (MED). This concept will blow your mind and may move you to make some big changes in your business and life.
