He wrote that most of economics can be summarized in four words: “People respond to incentives.” People respond to incentives. Here in Portland, we've incentivized homelessness and lawlessness with our attitudes and legislation essentially encouraging our homeless friends to do drugs and co...

I've had a couple questions about who I am, what I do, and what qualifies me to give financial advice. Well, the first thing you should all know is that I'm NOT qualified to give you advice and nothing in this podcast should be considered financial, legal, investment, or tax advice. BUT, I am a semi-legit entrepreneur and I do understand the challenges that we entrepreneurs face when dealing with retirement planning, so th...

Are you nervous about the current stock market bubble? You should be. Have you thought about investing in cash-flowing single-family homes, but just don't know where to start? I was there. Back in 2017, as I was making kickass returns in the market, buying shares of Amazon every time I read about another major retailer closing (Remember Macys? JC Pennys?), I knew the bull market was going to have to end. But when? I knew I wan...

Unfortunately, if you're interested in building wealth, that's horrible advice. If you're self-employed and you're hoping to retire one day, paying down your mortgage with early principle payments is like putting money into a non-interest-bearing savings account that you can'...

Today we're gonna give a brief rundown on the 4% rule, originally developed by William Bengen. The 4% rule had me paralyzed back in the day, because I didn't think I'd ever have enough of a nest egg to retire. Based on this rule, if you want your retirement funds to last for 30 years, you need 25X your required annual income. Of course, this is if you've got the standard stock/bond asset allocation. As always, if y...
