Guys, do I have a treat for you today?!
If you’ve followed me for any time at all, you know that there have been a few podcast appearances in the past…just a few 🙂 On BiggerPockets alone there have been 3 appearances. There was the CardoneZone appearance with Grant Cardone. There were literally countless others – go here to listen to all.
However, you also must have noticed that I’ve really put the breaks on relative any new interviews. Part of it has to do with being in somewhat of a flux due to relocating to Arizona, since I am old and that’s what old people do. But, partly, I slowed down simply because I’ve become more selective… It seems that everyone and their mother, father, and uncles on both sides have a podcast, but that doesn’t mean that I need to be on all of them. You know what I mean?!
Get Rich Education Podcast
Get Rich Education with Keith Weinhold is different. Keith is an investor who models himself on the teachings of Robert Kiyosaki, but has developed a knowledge bank which quite obviously transcends the basics in the Rich Dad books series. If you were to talk to Keith you would be immediately impressed with the fact that the stuff he knows can only be internalized by doing – reading won’t get you there…
I like that. I am of the opinion that there is a world of difference between knowledge and perspective, and while the prior can be learned, the latter has to be experienced and internalized. From his other shows, and the level of conversation, I had an inkling that Keith is legit.
Furthermore, the list of his other guests reads like a who is who of the real estate, finance, and economics world. I mean, seriously – all guys and gals whose books I read to get smart; people like Harry Dent, Tom Wheelright, Ken McElroy, Sharon Lechter, T. Harv Eker, and naturally Robert Kiyosaki, and many others.
So, knowing that chances of a serious, meaningful, and honest conversation with someone “on the level” were high, I agreed to appear on his podcast. And I was right!
Ben Leybovich the Healthy Pessimist
That’s what Keith referred to me as at one point, by which Keith was referring, I think, to the reality that I tend not to paint overly rosy pictures for you guys, and instead prefer to tell it like it is. The entire show basically focuses on understanding underwriting and markets. We really did have a very interesting conversations, agreeing on most points, but disagreeing on some. Take a listen, guys – I think lots of you will learn a ton!
