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 115 - The Next 10 Commandments of Successful Real Estate Investing
2 days ago
In the beginning, Jason Hartman created the 10 Commandments of Successful Investing, and he saw that it was good. But then he lived and learned and realized there was a desperate need for 10 more. Listen in as Jason Hartman discusses The Next 10 Commandments of Successful Investing. This keynote speech was taped live at the opening of our 2013 Meet the Masters of Income Property Investing Event at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine, California. With all deference to the Big Guy upstairs, when it comes to income property investing, Jason Hartman realized that 10 commandments simply weren’t enough to cover such an important topic. Not when creating financial independence is at stake. What’s in the new commandments? Another generous helping of the kind of nitty gritty (and free) income property investing educational detail you’ve come to expect from Jason. Commandments 11-20 include: Thou Shalt Not Be a Sucker Thou Shalt Have a Reality Check Thou Shalt Embrace Fragmentation Thou Shalt Make Rational Decisions Thou Shalt Look at the Big Picture . . . and five more critical NEW commandments In case you haven’t committed the original 10 Commandments of Successful Investing to memory, here’s a quick refresher:: 1. Thou shalt become educated: Knowledge is a powerful tool. Do your due diligence and become your own best advisor. 2. Thou shalt have a professional investment counselor: Only invest with investment professionals who stay with you for the long term. Advisors should buy for themselves what they sell, putting their money where their mouth is, and get paid for producing results rather than simply for advice. 3. Thou shalt maintain control: Never leave your financial future in the hands of incompetent, unethical, or greedy brokerage houses, fund managers or corporations. Always be a direct investor. 4. Thou shalt use prudent financial planning techniques: Always invest with your goals in mind (retirement, financial freedom, creating wealth) and abide by your risk tolerance and investing style. 5. Thou shalt not gamble: Be a prudent, long-term value investor, never a get-rich-quick gambler, speculator, or flipper. Invest only in properties that make good financial sense the day you buy them. 6. Thou shalt diversify: reduce risk and maximize returns by investing in several areas, as every market is different. 7. Thou shalt be Area Agnostic™: Only invest with an advisor who is not partial to any one area or investment to avoid a conflict of interest. Don’t fall in love with your home geographical area! 8. Thou shalt borrow to maximize leverage and accelerate wealth creation: Use as much borrowed money and as little of your own money as possible as long as the borrowed money can be repaid by the tenant. Let other people’s money work for you, reduce your risk, and make you wealthy. 9. Thou shalt only invest where there is universal need: No one needs stocks, bonds, or gold but everyone needs a place to live, and with growing affluence around the world, consumption of raw materials will continue to cause upward price pressure on improved real estate. 10. Thou shalt invest only in tax-favored assets: Non-cash write-offs and deductions are money in your pocket and income property offers the best of both.
