205 - Badass Interview with Clint Harris
K-Mart Conversions   Jen is a little nervous to share this episode with Clint Harris because she'd love to keep his genius strategy all to herself so SHE can snatch up her own K-Mart! In his pursuit of time and location independence, Clint has discovered an almost untapped market of converting deserted big box stores into storage units. He also dives into the importance of diversifying your portfolio, his extensive history with Airbnbs, and transitioning into the world of syndication and raising capital.    Clint Harris is a professional real estate investor, entrepreneur, and handles capital raising and investor relations at Nomad Capital. He owns Going Coastal Property Management and hosts the Truly Passive Income podcast. With a background in medical sales, Clint built a lucrative multifamily real estate portfolio, converted to high-performing AirBnB properties. Frustrated with management services, he founded Going Coastal Property Management. For diversification, Clint transitioned to self-storage investments, eventually joining Nomad Capital as a general partner, buying old big box retail buildings and converting them to self-storage. Having raised capital for over $100 million in stabilized assets, his mission is to inspire financial, location, and time independence for investors.  Social Media Links: http://www.linkedin.com/in/clint-harris-543265139 Website: https://nomadcapital.us/team/   To learn more about Jen Josey, visit www.TheRealJenJosey.com To join REIGN, visit www.REIGNmastermind.com Stuff Jen Josey Loves: https://www.reignmastermind.com/resources Buy Jen Josey’s Book: From Beginner to Badass: https://a.co/d/bstKlby

204 - Badass Interview with Jeff Ball
The Dean of DSCR!   Whoa! We have celebrity guest, Jeff Ball on today's episode! He, and his company Visio Lending, are the pioneers of the DSCR Loan that has changed the way investors finance their short-term, mid-term, and long-term rentals. DSCR loans offer a variety of advantages over Agency (Fannie/Freddie) investment property loans and bank portfolio term loans. Here are a few: (1) qualify based on property level cash flow rather than person DTI (perfect for self-employed, or part-time employed and offers lower documentation requirements with no W-2s or tax returns required); (2) finance in a corporate entity to shield other assets; (3) only prove cash reserves on the current loan being financed; and (4) higher loan concentration limits. This is a great listen...check it out!   Jeff Ball serves as the CEO of Visio Lending, the nation’s leading lender for DSCR loans. He is responsible for setting Visio's overall strategy and direction. Prior to forming Visio Lending, he founded Visio's predecessor company, Econohomes. Jeff previously served as the Global Head of Semiconductor Investment Banking at JP Morgan, where his clients included some of the largest technology companies in the world, including Intel and Texas Instruments. Before JP Morgan, Jeff was a corporate securities attorney at Gray Cary Ware & Freidenrich (now DLA Piper). Jeff received his JD and MBA from Santa Clara University. He received his undergraduate degree in Economics and Theology from Georgetown University.

178 - Badass Interview with Jim Manning
Our success should be judged by what was given up to get it... We have Jim Manning on today's show! Jim's first job out of school was working for a self made billionaire. He had the private jets, and every material thing you could ever want. Unfortunately, the billionaire was absolutely miserable. And so 15 years ago Jim set out to find a way to become financially free without sacrificing his personal life. The passive income that real estate has provided has allowed Jim to: 1. Own 3 multi-million dollar real estate companies. 2. Work a balanced schedule. 3. Parent 4 kids under 9 and even coach multiple teams. 4. Invest in over $250 million in properties. Along the way Jim discovered that he also had a knack for creating financial freedom for others. He's now on a mission to show others how to generate passive income from real estate without doing any of the work. We aren't meant to be working bots slaving away all day...instead we can be free!   https://passivewealthshow.com/   To learn more about Jen Josey, visit www.TheRealJenJosey.com To join REIGN, visit www.REIGNmastermind.com To join HomeSchooled by Tarek, visit https://go.homeschooled.co/schedule-strategy-session?el=jenjosey4

177 - Badass Interview with Peter Eberhardt
Spit, Grit, and a Whole Lot of Tears   Peter Eberhardt grew up in the far mountains of Northern California. He was always on a bike as a young kid, and at age 12 started racing BMX at his small hometown track. When Peter was 16, someone made a comment that no one from his home track would earn a national ranking and that spurred Peter to set out and put his hometown track on the map. By the time he was 19 (2015), he had achieved multiple district and state championships. However due to not having the national caliber tracks to train on and other resources, Peter struggled to make any headway on the national circuit. At 18,Peter spent every dollar to move himself down to San Diego so that he had the ability to train at the Olympic Training Center and not only on national caliber tracks, but Olympic level tracks. With the cost of living on the rise and not being able to efficiently train due to having to work so hard to make ends meet, Peter decided that he needed to buy a house to get his living costs under control. Peter drove uber for 6 months to buy his first condo at age 21. By the time Peter was 24, he finally earned a national ranking. Early on in 2020 at age 25, Peter had a lightbulb moment with his neighbors moving out, that he realized the power of real estate, and dove all in to learning about different ways of investing. About the same time, he finally accepted that he would never become who he was striving for in BMX racing, and hung up the bike for the time being to focus on other things. Late in 2021, with money saved from uber driving and taking out a HELOC on his condo, Peter purchased a central California 4plex which he then moved into for 8months to gut and renovate all 4 units mostly by himself. After that asset was fully repositioned and stabilized, Peter shifted his mind set around partnering, hired a few mentors and coaches, and is now fully invested in the multifamily space looking for his next deal.   Social Media Links: https://www.instagram.com/petereberhardt  https://www.facebook.com/peter.eberhardt92020 https://www.youtube.com/@petereberhardt4394   To learn more about Jen Josey, visit www.TheRealJenJosey.com To join REIGN, visit www.REIGNmastermind.com To join HomeSchooled by Tarek, visit https://go.homeschooled.co/schedule-strategy-session?el=jenjosey
