At Lifestyles Unlimited, we always teach that it is best to refer not only to our educational program, but to your history as an investor as well. After all, there is no better way to learn the do’s and don’t’s in real estate investing than either doing them or not doing them in the field yourself. It is here where your refinement begins and it is here where you start to shape our teaching into your increasingly successful membership. Here to reminisce about the greats that unfortunately came and went in their history as real estate investors, are none other than Del Walmsley and John Ridgway.

(January 21, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: Thinking About Retirement & Acting On The Opportunities To Get You There Sooner Rather Than Later
Part of our mission here at Lifestyles Unlimited is to redefine retirement. No longer is this an endgame strategy to benefit from much later on in life. It is an ever-pressing calling to meet and exceed our bills with passive streams of income as soon as possible. With that comes a wonderful feeling for most, as the mission has changed – “it is now time to live the life I have always dreamed of.” But, with this realization, so too comes the responsibility for seeking out only the most effective actions possible. There is no time for distractions. On this show, Del Walmsley conveys the necessity to stay focused on you and what you’re doing, so that you can end up exactly where you intended in the amount of time you may have never thought possible!
Even the most successful stock investors can lose a mountain of money in one year, and even the most conservative can lose their earnings in one unexpected market crash. But, wouldn’t it be amazing if you invested in one of the essentials of life and saved yourself all the hassle? By investing in something far older than companies and their profits, (or there lack of) such as shelter and the land that comes with it, we are ensuring our success in the up and especially in the down market. On this LU podcast, Del Walmsley shares many articles that forecast trouble for the stock market in 2015, but these forecasts do not provide anything new in our minds, as we’ve seen the writing on the wall for a long, long time.
When it comes to investing, numbers will always speak louder than words. For starters, according to Del Walmsley, 5 articles written in the last 3 or 4 days are all forecasting grim times to come in the stock market. Not big enough? Mark Spitznagel, who is known for his hugely profitable bet on the stock market crash of 2008, believes that “it’s only a matter of time before the stock market plunges 50% or more.” Looking for more? The Jerome Levy Forecasting Center, which is known for its prediction of the 29′ crash, is estimating a 65% chance of a global recession this year that would negatively affect the U.S. market. The business of where you put your money is yours and yours alone. That being said, it’s not always about what you invest in that counts, but also what you pull out and when. Del is here on this podcast to tell you that (when investing correctly) real estate investors never approach these situations with bated breath and neither should you.
Life does not have it out for you. There is no target painted on your back. You are the sole driver of success or failure in your life and to believe anything else would be to give up control of the most important tool you have – the power of decision making. Life is a series of forks in the road, as we see it, because (let’s face it) we spend all of our time standing at one with an LU sign that says “turn here!” But, we weren’t always here. Had it not been for the pursuit of the right “turns” and the right type of thinking, we would have never made it to where we are today. Understand the power of poor decisions with this LU podcast and you’ll understand how to take your life from bad to good, and from good to great!
When it comes to real estate investment, there is no better way to maximize your work on a property and minimize your return than flipping or wholesaling houses. Here at Lifestyles Unlimited, we’ve done the hard part for you. We’ve figured out how to bring people the properties they’ve always wanted to rent without wrecking the real estate investment venture you always dreamed of. So, do yourself a favor and put down the paintbrush. It’s time you listened to the LU radio show and started living the investment life instead of working for it.
Catch a listen to the many real estate investment questions and answers on this Saturday segment and you may have one of your burning questions answered in the process. Enjoy!
(January 16, 2015) The Del Walmsley Radio Show: An Analysis of The Oil Industry Layoffs – Don’t Let Your Job Dictate Your Future
“The Gravy Train Has Derailed For Oil Workers Laid Off In Slump” reads the headline, as Del Walmsley begins his analysis of the 5 page article of focus on this podcast. But, what you might assume would be an article filled with an objective breakdown of the oil layoff situation as a whole, is really just the hashing out of countless stories that are the oldest in the book – the loss of a job, the lack of a plan without it and the void of desperation that follows. For many people, the job stops without a care in the world of your plan to succeed with it. This is the show for those who look to preempt devastating job loss with a life that is infinitely cushioned from it.
Steve Davis uses this LU podcast to readdress a popular topic from before – “Goal Setting.” Be sure to use this show to get fresh angles, hear new conversations and receive new information on this interesting point of focus, so that you can press forward on your map to financial freedom!
