All the BiggerPockets podcast hosts on stage in one place!  This bonus episode was recorded at the BiggerPockets Conference 2019 on October 7th in front of a live audience of more than 1,000 people at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tenn. We turned the mics over to our members, who fired a bunch of great questions at Scott Trench and Mindy Jensen, Brandon Turner and David Greene, Joshua Dorkin, and J and Carol Scott. Our panelists covered some nitty gritty real estate topics, like tackling vacancy and how to invest IRA funds, as well as big-picture concepts like motivation, marketing, and teaching family members the importance of investing at an early age. Also, everyone reveals which animal they would be if they had to choose, and a member of the audience challenges David Greene to produce an analogy on the spot. Listen to find out whether he performed under pressure!  Our first conference in seven years was a big success, and we’re so thankful to everyone who came out to learn, network, and have a great time. Download this bonus episode, and be sure to subscribe to all three shows BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast, BiggerPockets Money Podcast, and BiggerPockets Business Podcast so you won't miss an episode.

Today, Brandon Turner’s on the other side of the microphone. J and Carol Scott, co-hosts of the BiggerPockets Business Podcast, recently interviewed him… and the result was so epic we wanted to share it here, too! In this episode, Brandon reveals why he chose mobile home park investing (hint: NOT necessarily because it’s the “best” investment) and describes the method his team used to get hundreds of pads under contract in just a few months. (It's an approach YOU can apply using the new BiggerPockets Intention Journal.) But this show is about much more than real estate. It’s about avoiding that all-too-common pitfall where you set an ambitious goal only to see it buried under an avalanche of more urgent (but less important) responsibilities. Brandon shares the tools he’s used to break that cycle and how he’s applied them to other challenges—like moving to Hawaii, improving his personal health, and spending more meaningful time with his family. You’ll hear how Brandon’s first business venture failed, how he got into real estate investing for cash flow, and how he discovered a way to bring BIG value to BiggerPockets as Employee #2, despite not owning a computer the year before! Oh, and you’ll learn the meaning of “M.I.N.S.” and the role they play in moving your business forward (ESPECIALLY when the going gets tough).  Brandon also shares why writing out a “vivid vision” of your future might be the best thing you can do to move yourself closer to your ideal life; why he asks, “What would be awesome?” and then works backwards; and why he and his wife organize a goal-setting retreat together on the same day every year. This is an amazing episode that lays out a battle plan for getting WAY more done while setting aside quality time for friends, family, and fun.  Download this one, and subscribe using your favorite podcast app so you won’t miss any future shows!

In this episode, he breaks down exactly how to “Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, and Repeat” your way to wealth.

What does true wealth mean to you? Maybe it’s having control over your time or having the means to donate part of your income to charity. Maybe it means feeling healthy enough to jump out of bed and attack the day. In today’s episode, Brandon, David, and Josh (remember him?) speak with three financially independent investors about what motivated each of them to work so hard toward their goals. Early in their careers, David Osborn, Pat Hiban, and Tim Rhode realized they shared a common goal: to steadily accumulate streams of passive—or as they call it—“horizontal” income. So they got together and made a serious commitment, vowing to hold each other accountable every step of the way—even if it meant dishing out some tough love. In this episode, you’ll learn how finding an accountability partner can change the trajectory of your career and life, and how giving time and money can not only make you feel better but also make you more wealthy. You’ll also learn how David, Pat, and Tim built dozens of streams of income by living below their means, connecting with the right people, and taking advantage of opportunities. This is a must-listen if you've ever asked the question, “Why am I working so hard, anyway?” You’ll come away from this episode motivated to hold yourself and your loved ones accountable so you can reach your goals together.
