Heroic Investing Show
About This Show
The challenges faced by first responders in the medical, rescue, police, and military have never been greater. Each day that you report for duty, your personal well-being is placed on the line as you step up to fulfill your duty and help people. It is unfortunate that the contributions of first responders are very rarely recognized for the priceless gift that they really are.
In addition to the physical dangers faced on the job by first responders, there is a hidden danger that may impact the financial lives of many first responders whom society depends upon for its very well-being. This hidden danger is the underfunded pension and retirement plans for police, fire, medical and military professionals. Federal, state and local governments all across the country and around the world are experiencing budget difficulties that make it difficult to finance pensions at a level that is sufficient for retirees to fully support their standard of living. This phenomenon may leave many first responders facing retirement years under extreme pressure from financial difficulty.
At Heroic Investing, we are dedicated to showing first responders a different way to build their financial future. The future is uncertain but first responders have extensive knowledge of how things can change in an instant. The hero’s of society have always been the people who protect our safety and respond to emergencies. You have dedicated your career to making sacrifices for the public good. These sacrifices should be rewarded with a financially secure future and a good retirement lifestyle. This is the reason why pensions were created in the first place and our sincere hope is that our heros have a secure and abundant future.

HI 81 - The Landlord Chronicles: How to Find & Keep Great Tenants with Barb Getty
2 days ago
Gary Pinkerton kicks off the episode discussing the relationship between real estate investors and their tenants. He points out the importance of making sure both sides of the deal are winning, and expectations are set from the beginning. This is true whether you're with a property management company or you're self-managing. Then, Jason Hartman is joined by author and real estate investor, Barb Getty, as she talks about her journey into real estate investing, what it takes to be a good landlord or property manager, how to find and keep great tenants, and explains the eviction process. Tragedy struck in 1992 when her 17-year-old son was killed in a car accident. Her daughters were 16 and 14 at the time. Sadly, Barb’s 21-year marriage ended eight months after Todd’s death. She bought a small home needing repairs, and following the fix-up, she and her daughters moved in. Pleased with that first project, Barb purchased her first duplex (with little money, no credit and no experience), hoping she had the wherewithal to be a landlord. Today, she owns 27+ units — a mix of single and multi-family, low and middle income rentals. Barb has also added high-end property management, consulting and speaking engagements to her business. Although she hasn’t had an easy road, Barb is both financially and emotionally invested in her work. She invites people to watch a video showing scenes she faces as a landlord in the inner city. Barb authored The Landlord Chronicles: Investing in Low and Middle Income Rentals, published in 2010. Armed with a positive attitude and a strong sense of humor, Barb Getty is making a difference in her tenants’ lives, the neighborhood and the city as well. Website: www.TheLandlordChronicles.com
