Your First Real Estate Syndication: What It's Like From Beginning To End. Could This Be Part Of Your Retirement Plan?
What do you do if you want to get involved in real estate as part of your retirement plan, but you don't want to be a landlord? That's easy: Invest in real estate syndications.A syndication is basically a partnership between a group of investors to purchase some kind of asset. There’s one person or a team of people who act as the sponsor or syndicator, and then there are the investors, who put in money, which is usually used for the down payment, and sometimes partially for improvements to the property, once it’s acquired. Investors in these syndications often receive quarterly distributions, followed by a large payoff once the property eventually sells.In today's episode, I'm going to run you through my first syndication investment, which I got into in the summer of 2018. My goal is to show you that it's not complicated, and if you get to know the right people, these can be very safe, very lucrative investments.I believe that real estate can really accelerate the growth of your retirement nest egg, while at the same helping you avoid the volatility of the equities markets. Check out today's episode and see how easy it is to get real estate into your retirement plan.For more information and episodes, be sure to visit my retirement planning podcast website at http://www.rogueretirementlounge.com And if you have any questions you'd like me to answer on the show, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Jail the Homeless? And a Geographic Plan B For Your Retirement Years
One of the best, most simple explanations I've ever heard for economics is from the book “The Armchair Economist,” by Steven Landsburg. 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 commit whatever crime necessary to support their habit. All while letting people camp pretty much anywhere within the city limits.I talk about this because much of the problem could have been prevented, but it makes us feel good to make it as easy as possible for people to engage in self-destructive behavior. And it makes us feel bad to incarcerate the less fortunate for committing crimes.Also, I briefly talk about the concept of a "Geographic Plan B." This is basically the idea that if you can't afford to retire where you are, there are many options out there where you can live for MUCH less. It's worth having a Plan B in place, just in case your retirement plans change down the line.And on the next episode I'm talking with a true expert in living abroad and all the things that go with it. He's Tim Leffel and I guarantee you're going to get a lot out of it.Thanks for joining me today and it would mean the world to me if you'd subscribe to this podcast and maybe give me a positive review.

Buying Out-of-State Turnkey Properties. You Can Do it. And it CAN Accelerate Your Retirement Plan.
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 wanted to get into real estate and get out of the stock market, but I didn't know where to start. I knew if we had a market crash, renters would still, most likely, have to pay their rents and hell, if an investment property burns down, the insurance company will replace it. A cash-flowing, insurable asset where the tenant pays the debt? Sounds like a win-win!So I found a lot of turnkey providers, some good, some bad. In today's episode, I run through the process of buying my first turnkey rental investment in the beautiful city of Cincinnati, OH. If you're an entrepreneur, I'd highly recommend you consider using real estate as part of your retirement plan. It makes sense on so many levels. Enjoy the episode, and feel free to send me an email if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.orgAnd if you'd like to get on my mailing list, sign up at www.rogueretirementlounge.comAnd finally, if you'd be willing to leave me a positive review, I'll love you forever!

A Paid Off Home Mortgage is a Sign of Financial Illiteracy, PART I
Some financial gurus, including Dave Ramsay, will tell you that you need to pay off your home mortgage, for the sake of being out of debt. 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't get it back out of. Why would you do that???In today's environment of the lowest interest rates in 5,000 years, the home mortgage has become an asset, NOT a liability. The bank is giving you money for less than the rate of inflation, meaning every year, in REAL terms, your payment is going down. Today's episode is just about getting you comfortable with the fact that paying off your home (or your investment properties), is a bad idea. That is, if you want to retire...Stay with me. I speak the truth!!I want to answer your questions. Go to www.rogueretirementlounge.com and click the red tab on the right side of the page to leave me a voicemail.

The 4% Rule and YOU.
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.

TRAILER: The Rogue Retirement Lounge
This is the Rogue Retirement Lounge, where we talk about all things retirement for Entrepreneurs. If you’re self-employed, if you're a gig worker, if you’re a solo-preneur, you’ve come to the right place to learn about alternative retirement investing strategies and structures, as well as other things NOBODY told you about when you started your business.I’m Matt Franklin and I’ve been self-employed for 15 years. I’ve had multiple businesses, including one that got me on Shark Tank in season 4. I talk to entrepreneurs all the time, and one thing is nearly universal: We’re shitty when it comes to preparing for retirement.I’ve spent the last five years researching ways to hurry up my path to retirement, and I was able to shave almost 10 years off of my working life by completely re-constructing my investment strategy from the ground up, and now I want to help you to retire sooner, retire wealthier, and retire happier.This podcast is unlike any other retirement show out there because pretty much everything we talk about is specifically for self-employed people like you. If you’re in a normal job with a 401K, you’ll still learn a lot here, but my focus is on the unique problems AND OPPORTUNITIES that we entrepreneurs have. I’m not gonna talk down to you and I don’t try to sell you anything. I’m here to give you ACTIONABLE information, not bullshit life insurance pitches and annuity plans.I release at least one episode a week, but be sure to subscribe, because there’ll be bonus episodes here and there, either when I discover something super cool related to retirement, or when there’s something scary that YOU need to know about.The length of this podcast will vary, so be ready for some short ones and some very long ones.Most of the time it’s just going to be me and you on here, but occasionally I’ll interview experts who are way smarter than I am.This Rogue Retirement Lounge is available on all the major podcasting platforms, but if you want links to your preferred platform, just go to www.rogueretirementlounge.com.
