RETIRING on your property portfolio may be easier than you think and could cost as little as a cup of coffee a day, according to an Adelaide-based investor George Markoski. But there's one catch. If you've been chasing the great Aussie dream of living in your own home, you're about to be disappointed. According to Adelaide local and author of A Positive Property Blueprint, George Markoski, successful property investment doesn't start with the purchase of a family home, but rather an investment property. George Markoski retired on a property portfolio of 10 properties at age 37, and a passive annual income of $180,000. When George first started investing in property, he accumulated five houses, but soon realised that it takes more than just buying property to get ahead. He had invested in the wrong areas and it was beginning to take its toll. He was working seven days a week, trying to pay off the mortgages, using old-school negative gearing methods. He knew there had to be a better way. He finally came up with a way of buying the right kind of properties, in the right kind of areas for only $30 a week, the cost of only one cup of coffee a day. This method became known as The Positive Property Blueprint. The benefits of buying an investment property are enormous but you still need to really learn how to do it, during this podcast George discusses the three main secrets to his success, and how to continue making money in property no matter what happens in the economy.

The Complete Guide to Dry Fasting (how to heal your body through dry fasting) | The Ugly Truth - Ep. 24
Dry fasting is a total abstinence from both food and water for a defined time. Dry fasting in a powerful tool used to fight premature aging, disease and promotes prolonging life. When the amazing healing powers of dry fasting is explained it makes perfect sense. The common belief and misconception is that humans can only survive three days or so without water. You might be surprised to learn that therapeutic dry fasts can last as long as five, seven, nine, even ten days. So what actually happens to the body when you dry fast? The cessation of both external food and water creates a special kind of stress in the body, prompting it urgently to come up with both nutrients and water, initiating the process of making both internally. During a dry fast, the body survives on endogenous or metabolic water, produced internally as a result of metabolizing fat tissue. Unlike any exogenous water, this metabolic water is of superb quality, produced by the hard work of our own cells. It literally erases any negative information imprint which the body had before the fast, allowing cells to experience a kind of a rebirth, as a result. Dry fasting also eliminates parasites and promotes regeneration of healthy tissues. And this isn’t even a complete list of benefits. Every cell the body literally cleans house. Only the strongest and healthiest of cells survive in such extreme conditions, while cysts and benign tumors dissolve as a result of autolysis, a process by which the body sacrifices its sickest cells for its own survival.
