Episode #457: Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

The Freedom Way: How Crisis Became My Path to Freedom in My 40s – Austin Hair (Part 1)

Today I share a conversation that I recently had with Austin Hair, managing partner of Leader’s Real Estate. Leader’s Real Estate helps healthcare partners, providers, and operations with their commercial real estate needs. In the first part of this two-part conversation, you will hear about my freedom journey and how crisis became my path to freedom in my 40s.

Listen in as Austin and I chat about my initial entry into real estate investing and some of the key lessons that can be learned from that era in the markets. We also discuss interest rates and the changes that have happened over the years. As the markets and real estate arenas shift, it’s important to have an understanding of the past and what got us to where we are now in order to have the most discernment moving forward.

Minute Markers:

1:54 – How I got started in real estate investing.

P.S. Whenever you’re ready, here are some other ways I can help fast track you to your Freedom goal (you’re closer than you think) :

In this episode, we finish up the second part of my interview with Rob Swanson and his eight rules of investing. (If you haven’t listened to part 1, be sure to go back and give that a listen before jumping into this one.) Today, we pick up where we left off, covering rules four through eight and talking about everything from decision-making to cash flow and risk reduction.

Listen in as Rob shares his incredible insight and experience in real estate and investing to give us a few rules that help make our decisions and investments more solid. You will hear about the importance of looking at margins before buying and what boxes need to be checked when it comes to predicting a solid income stream. Rob also discusses how to define and mitigate the different risks involved so that you can come out on top.

Alastair MacDonald is a private advisor to established entrepreneurs, investors, and business owners, as well as a TEDx speaker who lectures on economic, social, and financial forecasts. Join me today to hear part two of our conversation at the Freedom Founders Mastermind, where we dive into the concept of certainty, how to hedge against a volatile economy, and why the abdication model is no longer one that works.

Listen in to learn the reasons why Alastair is not worried about consumer price inflation (and what he’s really worried about instead) and why the 401(k) is not always the investment that it is made out to be. You’ll learn why he is most concerned about the issue of division and polarity in the Western world, why your business is your best asset in a volatile economy, and how you can maintain its viability to weather the most intense economic storm.
