Podcasting is a lot of work! Who told me to start a podcast? And why didn’t any of you stop me?! Is it too late to back out?
Ok, but seriously, I’ve been working hard on putting everything together for the launch of the podcast. The recommendation from the podcast experts is that you launch with at least 3-5 episodes in the que. On top of that, I want to have an additional 5-7 episodes completed upfront so that I can release them every week and have a buffer while I’m creating new episodes. The last thing I want to do is get behind and scramble when it’s time to release an episode every week.
I’ve finally selected July 26th as the podcast launch date. I was so afraid of selecting a date because I thought I wouldn’t be ready. But instead of waiting until everything is perfect because let’s face it, nothing will ever be completely perfect, I’m selecting a date and launching.
I spend an obscene amount of time in my car. About 3-4 hours a day of driving. It’s insane but I’ve been doing the commute for over 12 years.
In that time, I’ve come to make the best use of my time in the car by listening to podcasts.
In fact, it was listening to podcasts that sparked my dreams of early retirement and Financial Freedom.
I started journeytolaunch.com, as a blog to chronicle my financial journey. Once I discovered my love of podcasts, I knew that I wanted to add podcasting to my platform.
When I was 22-years-old, I put a deposit down on my first property in New York City. It was a small 525 sq. ft. studio apartment in the fast developing DUMBO area of Brooklyn. DUMBO, short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass is literally right under the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn, across the river from Manhattan.
The studio was in a new high-rise condominium development that had yet to be constructed. Unbeknownst to me, buying this property was one of the most dangerous but rewarding financial decisions I’d ever make. [Read more…] about How I Bought My First Real Estate Investment Property At 22-Years-Old
