CW 712 FBF - Nominal Dollars vs Real Dollars and Understanding Investor Psychology with Investment Counselor Sara
Jason Hartman talks with investment counselor, Sara, about investor psychology, overcoming obstacles and getting out of our own way. The smoke-and-mirrors propaganda perpetuated by mainstream media (lamestream media as Sarah Palin says) in reporting the new high in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA).
They almost always fail to distinguish between nominal dollars and real dollars. Jason illustrates how investors have actually lost money in inflation adjusted dollars and how the Dow has to increase a lot more before investors break even based on the two peaks. This lie is even worse when one considers how inflation is underreported in the consumer price index (CPI and CPI-U) due to weighting, substitution and hedonics (the hedonic index). Another misrepresentation is the ‘core rate’ or ‘core inflation’ which strips out food and energy because they’re too volatile. Jason shares some interesting data from ZeroHedge.com.

CW 703 FBF - Jason Hartman’s Timeless “Refi ‘Till You Die” Investment Strategy to Multiply Long-Term Wealth
One of the core concepts that we communicate to our investors is to “Refi Till Ya Die” with your rental property portfolio. While this description may sound a bit snarky, it is a very powerful strategy for multiplying your wealth over the long-term.
The most unique part of this strategy is that it stands in stark contrast to the popular strategy of ‘flipping’ properties by buying and quickly re-selling them for quick profits. The strategy that we recommend is the exact opposite of this. At Platinum Properties, we advocate buying and holding prudent rental properties over a long period of time. This enables investors to build real wealth, instead of constantly churning properties. (And creating taxable gains)
There is another very powerful force behind our strategy of buy and hold investing. That power comes when the rents and value of your property increase over time. Typically, an investment property will start with low cash flow, and will grow in profitability as tenant rents are increased. This increase in revenues carries with it a tremendous tool for growing your wealth.
The way that you employ this tool is to refinance your property for more than your original purchase price, based on the increased cash flow. This will allow you to re-invest the amount of your loan that exceeds the original purchase price. And here comes the kicker . . . these net proceeds are not taxed!!!
The reason that you will not owe taxes on the re-financing of your properties is because loans are not taxed. Since you are taking out a loan instead of selling the property, no taxable transaction is triggered. (Granted, capital gains can be deferred via 1031 exchange, but you will still lose 5% to 6% of the property value off the top from realtor fees. Thus, investors can “Refi Till Ya Die” and legally avoid paying taxes on the increased loan amount of their properties. (In addition to this, the increased interest payments from your new loan will reduce the tax burden of your regular cash flow)
These strategies can super-charge wealth creation by allowing investors to capture their equity growth for re-investment. These perpetual re-investments accelerate the natural compounding of your investment portfolio. It also carries the benefit of consistently increasing your use of fixed-rate debt as a shield against inflation. Prudent investors realize the incredible power of this strategy, and should seek to capitalize on it to build their wealth during these increasingly difficult times.

CW 700 FBF - Achieving Success vs Wanting Success with T. Harv Eker Author of ‘Secrets of the Millionaire Mind’
Jason Hartman talks with T. Harv Eker about Secrets of the Millionaire Mind which reveals the missing link between wanting success and achieving it. Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily, while others are destined for a life of financial struggle? Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or their choice of jobs, businesses, or investments?
The shocking answer is: None of the above!
T. Harv Eker states: “Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” Eker does this by identifying your “money and success blueprint.” We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success.
Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is two books in one. Part I explains how your money blueprint works. Through Eker’s rare combination of street smarts, humor, and heart, you will learn how your childhood influences have shaped your financial destiny. You will also learn how to identify your own money blueprint and “revise” it to not only create success but, more important, to keep and continually grow it.
In Part II you will be introduced to seventeen “Wealth Files,” which describe exactly how rich people think and act differently than most poor and middle-class people. Each Wealth File includes action steps for you to practice in the real world in order to dramatically increase your income and accumulate wealth.
If you are not doing as well financially as you would like, you will have to change your money blueprint. Unfortunately your current money blueprint will tend to stay with you for the rest of your life, unless you identify and revise it, and that’s exactly what you will do with the help of this extraordinary book. According to T. Harv Eker, it’s simple. If you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you’ll get rich too.

CW 691 FBF - Averting A Global Depression with Richard Duncan Author of ‘The Dollar Crisis: Causes, Consequences & Cures’
When the United States stopped backing dollars with gold in 1968, the nature of money changed, becoming the fiat currency system that has now put the world into an unprecedented recession.
Jason Hartman is joined by returning guest, Richard Duncan, to talk about how we are in danger of a global Great Depression and how we can stop it. Richard’s previous book talked about the inevitable collapse of the dollar, and his new book discusses “a new theoretical construct, The Quantity Theory of Credit, that is the key to understanding not only the developments that led to the crisis, but also to understanding how events will play out in the years ahead.”
Richard explains how the expansion of credit eventually implodes and the dangers of the contraction of credit. Richard Duncan is the author of three books on the global economic crisis. The Dollar Crisis: Causes, Consequences, Cures (John Wiley & Sons, 2003, updated 2005), predicted the current global economic disaster with extraordinary accuracy. It was an international bestseller.
His second book was The Corruption of Capitalism: A strategy to rebalance the global economy and restore sustainable growth. It was published by CLSA Books in December 2009. His latest book is The New Depression: The Breakdown of the Paper Money Economy (John Wiley & Sons, 2012). Since beginning his career as an equities analyst in Hong Kong in 1986, Richard has served as global head of investment strategy at ABN AMRO Asset Management in London, worked as a financial sector specialist for the World Bank in Washington D.C., and headed equity research departments for James Capel Securities and Salomon Brothers in Bangkok. He also worked as a consultant for the IMF in Thailand during the Asia Crisis. He is now chief economist at Blackhorse Asset Management in Singapore.
Richard has appeared frequently on CNBC, CNN, BBC and Bloomberg Television, as well as on BBC World Service Radio. He has published articles in The Financial Times, The Far East Economic Review, FinanceAsia and CFO Asia. He is also a well-known speaker whose audiences have included The World Economic Forum’s East Asia Economic Summit in Singapore, The EuroFinance Conference in Copenhagen, The Chief Financial Officers’ Roundtable in Shanghai, and The World Knowledge Forum in Seoul. Richard studied literature and economics at Vanderbilt University (1983) and international finance at Babson College (1986); and, between the two, spent a year travelling around the world as a backpacker.

CW 685 FBF - Finding & Keeping Great Tenants + Tips for Landlords & Property Managers with Real Estate Investor Barb Getty
Jason Hartman is joined by author and real estate investor, Barb Getty, as she talks about her journey into real estate investing, what it takes to be a good landlord or property manager, how to find and keep great tenants, and explains the eviction process.
The second of four children, Barb was born and raised in Gary, IN. She graduated cum laude from Purdue and married soon after. After seven moves in nine years of marriage, her family settled in Indianapolis.
Tragedy struck in 1992 when her 17-year-old son was killed in a car accident. Her daughters were 16 and 14 at the time. Sadly, Barb’s 21-year marriage ended eight months after Todd’s death. She bought a small home needing repairs, and following the fix-up, she and her daughters moved in.
Pleased with that first project, Barb purchased her first duplex (with little money, no credit and no experience), hoping she had the wherewithal to be a landlord. Today, she owns 27+ units — a mix of single and multi-family, low and middle income rentals. CNBC.com interviewed her recently and the article also appeared in USA Today. Barb has also added high-end property management, consulting and speaking engagements to her business.
Although she hasn’t had an easy road, Barb is both financially and emotionally invested in her work. She invites people to watch a video showing scenes she faces as a landlord in the inner city. It’s very compelling. Barb authored The Landlord Chronicles: Investing in Low and Middle Income Rentals, published in 2010. Armed with a positive attitude and a strong sense of humor, Barb Getty is making a difference in her tenants’ lives, the neighborhood and the city as well.

CW 676 FBF - High Frequency Trading with Scott Patterson Wall Street Journal Reporter and Author of ‘The Quants & Dark Pools’
Jason Hartman is joined by author, Scott Patterson to discuss high frequency trading, of which roughly 70 percent is driven by computers. Scott says the firms using artificial intelligence for high-speed trading make it nearly impossible for the little guy to compete in the markets.
According to his book, Dark Pools, these robot systems trade in milliseconds. High frequency firms flood the market with buy and sell orders, effectively clogging up the system and posing a threat to other firms.
While this electronic exchange made the system more effective, one has to wonder if this trading style hasn’t become detrimental to the markets overall when trading successfully is defined by milliseconds. Scott coined the term “A.I. Bandits” to describe electronic high frequency trading. Scott also discusses the history of quant strategies based on his book, The Quants, a mathematical scientific approach to outsmarting Wall Street, which led to the recent financial crash. He calls the quant system “a classic tale of hubris.”
Scott Patterson is author of The Quants and his new release, Dark Pools, and is currently a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, where he covers financial regulation from Washington, D.C. He has also written for the New York Times, Rolling Stone and Mother Earth News. He has a Masters of Arts degree from James Madison University. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

CW 663 FBF - Fractional Reserve Banking & Fiscal Cliffs with G. Edward Griffin Bestselling Author of ‘The Creature from Jekyll Island’
Jason Hartman is joined by returning guest and best-selling author of The Creature from Jekyll Island, G. Edward Griffin, for a discussion of the hot topic of the United States’ “fiscal cliff.”
As Mr. Griffin shares, the fiscal cliff is nothing new. It has been there for roughly 50 years and applying a name to it now is a scare tactic by the government. Mr. Griffin talks about fractional reserve banking and how it has led to the economic mess our country and world are in today. It is no longer a fractional reserve; it is at zero reserve and Mr. Griffin feels the economy is going to collapse from all of the borrowing to pay old debt. This will lead to a fully regimented society, which Mr. Griffin describes as drifting toward totalitarian, a scary concept.
He goes on to discuss short and long term ways to protect ourselves, preserving any wealth one might have, and being prepared as much as possible for anything that may come to pass. He feels the Fed will continue to inflate, raise taxes for a while, and then probably cut taxes again at some point. It will be more of the same, more and more governmental control over our lives, more and more money created out of nothing, and less and less freedom.
G. Edward Griffin is a writer and documentary film producer with many successful titles to his credit. Listed in Who’s Who in America, he is well known because of his talent for researching difficult topics and presenting them in clear terms that all can understand. He has dealt with such diverse subjects as archaeology and ancient Earth history, the Federal Reserve System and international banking, terrorism, internal subversion, the history of taxation, U.S. foreign policy, the science and politics of cancer therapy, the Supreme Court, and the United Nations.
His better-known works include The Creature from Jekyll Island, World without Cancer, The Discovery of Noah’s Ark, Moles in High Places, The Open Gates of Troy, No Place to Hide, The Capitalist Conspiracy, More Deadly than War, The Grand Design, The Great Prison Break, and The Fearful Master.
Mr. Griffin is a graduate of the University of Michigan where he majored in speech and communications. In preparation for writing his book on the Federal Reserve System, he enrolled in the College for Financial Planning located in Denver, Colorado. His goal was not to become a professional financial planner but to better understand the real world of investments and money markets. He obtained his CFP designation (Certified Financial Planner) in 1989.
Mr. Griffin is a recipient of the coveted Telly Award for excellence in television production, the creator of the Reality Zone Audio Archives, and is President of American Media, a publishing and video production company in Southern California. He has served on the board of directors of The National Health Federation and The International Association of Cancer Victors and Friends. He is Founder and President of The Coalition for Visible Ballots, The Cancer Cure Foundation, and Freedom Force International. Mr. Griffin was recently a speaker at the September Casey Research Summit in Carlsbad, CA, speaking on Freedom Force.

If you are using microeconomics to plan for your future you may be ready to sell your assets and buy a “Preppers guide to self-sustainability”. But, if you take a step back and look at the bigger picture of macroeconomics you will see that it’s an amazing time to be alive. Jason’s guest Jawad Mian says “the key is to watch the disruption”. Manufacturing may be at an all time low but the services provided by Silicon Valley and the tech industry will offset any economic loss with growth, just in different terms. The market always corrects itself just differently than people perceive it to. The future is brighter than you might think.

CW 645 FBF – Greg Farrell – Crash of the Titans: Greed, Hubris and The Fall of Merrill Lynch and the Near Collapse of Bank of America
Jason Hartman is joined on this episode by Greg Farrell, author of Crash of the Titans: Greed, Hubris, The Fall of Merrill Lynch, and the Near Collapse of Bank of America, for a discussion of the economic crash and the resulting bailouts, as well as some of the inside dealings with some of the major banks, such as the buyouts by Bank of America.
Greg explains how these banks that participated in the buyouts grossly underestimated the depth of problems in their own banks and in those they acquired. Greg relates his research on Merrill Lynch’s attempt in the 1980s to become more like Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street banks, which was to their detriment because they lacked the expertise for such business practices, and became involved in and in the middle of many of the scandals of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. Like CitiGroup, they were in over their head.
Jason and Greg discuss Wall Street in general and then specific financial groups regarding the recklessness and risky businesses, funds, etc, that they entertained to give the impression of higher rates of returns. As the plot unfolded, large bonuses to CEOs and high-producing brokers came into play, which encouraged an all or nothing attitude toward the company and fostered a “me” attitude versus long-term stability of the company. Greg also talks about what he calls the “Charlotte Mafia,” the clash of company cultures.
Greg Farrell is a correspondent for the Financial Times. In January 2009, he broke the news that Merrill Lynch had paid out its 2008 bonuses a month ahead of schedule, in December, even though Merrill was in the process of losing $28 billion for the year, and Bank of America needed an extra $20 billion in taxpayer funds to complete its acquisition of the firm. That story sparked an investigation by New York attorney general Andrew Cuomo.
Greg is a past winner of the American Business Press’s Jesse Neal Award for investigative reporting and a recipient of the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship for business journalism. He earned a BA from Harvard University and an MBA from the Graduate School of Business at Columbia University.

Average Americans are speaking up and they want a hard ass in the White House. They are tired of the trouble making, intolerant progressive democrats who know nothing of economics. They may be in search of a man similar to Ronald Reagan, like Donald Trump. Both former president and possibly future president speak in generalities because it is their job to lead, not to be the experts. Trump will use the American military when it is needed to serve the best interests of the American public.

CW 639 FBF – Roger Lowenstein- The End of Wall Street’ The Wall Street Journal’s ‘Heard on the Street’ Column
Join Jason Hartman as he interviews author and financial journalist Roger Lowenstein regarding the history of Wall Street’s demise. Roger talks about the increases in choice, risk, hedging, more volatility, and how free markets are open to speculation, greed, fear and manipulation. There are more markets today susceptible to booms and busts. In the old days, local bankers determined loan eligibility. Today, bankers internationally, who don’t know anything about their clientele, determine eligibility, often to the detriment of the borrowers.
Roger and Jason debate whether Wall Street needs more regulation or deregulation, and discuss the consequences of government interference. They also talk about many of the Wall Street mistakes and the corporations that were rescued by the bailouts and the unprecedented number of failed mortgages. They end their discussion with observations of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Roger Lowenstein graduated from Cornell University and was a reporter for the Wall Street Journal for more than a decade, including two years writing it’s “Heard on the Street” column. He has published five books, including The End of Wall Street, When Genius Fails, and Buffet: The Making of an American Capitalist. He is also the director of Sequoia Fund. Roger is the son of Helen and Louis Lowenstein. His father was an attorney and Columbia University law professor who wrote books and articles critical of the American financial industry. Roger himself has also written numerous financial articles.

A presidential candidate's health is extremely important considering how presidents of the past have aged prematurely during their time in office. If Hillary is exhibiting current health issues, what condition will she be in four years from now? Her health is just one of the many reasons Jason’s guest, Author Edward Klein, says we should vote to ensure she does not end up in the White House again, this time as POTUS. Hillary is constantly getting caught in unethical activities and somehow escapes prosecution. She may be creating smaller scandals to distract us, the American public, from her illegal activities which are on a much larger scale.

Real estate investment income property is the most historically proven asset class. Real estate properties should be looked at in a market by market basis and when looking for you first or next creative deal make certain you can trust the person you are dealing with.

CW 633 FBF – Joel Grasmeyer – Real Estate Investment Property Evaluation Software Founder of PropertyTracker.com
Jason Hartman invites prior guest Joel Grasmeyer back on the show to talk about updates to one of the greatest software tools for property investors, Property Tracker.
Joel started PropertyTracker.com in 2004 after creating and using this software himself to evaluate and keep track of his own investment properties. Property Tracker is a two-part tool, like having a property analysis tool in your pocket. The Property Evaluator tool allows you to analyze and compare properties in which you’re interested, providing a one-year projection on cash flow, cap rate, and return on investment, and a multi-year projection on true rate of return. The Property Tracker tool help keep track of the performance of properties you already own, based on actual income and expenses rather than projections. It also provides an “instrument panel” to let you see when it’s time to buy, hold, sell, or even do a 1031 Exchange. At the end of the year, this tool allows you to print up a Schedule E. Recent enhancements allow the investor to email PDFs to lenders or investment partners directly from your iPhone. Real estate agents can add their own branding to the cover page, heading and footer of the report and email it to potential investors.
With the introduction of the iPad, Property Evaluator became even easier to use, with the ability to input more information with full-screen PDF capabilities to email reports directly from the iPad, as well as print the reports from the iPhone and iPad. Available products are the web-based Property Evaluator and Property Tracker, and the standalone apps for iPad, iPhone, and Mac, which is just a one-time fee. There are three versions for the iPhone and iPad: Standard, Premium and Pro editions. Jason highly recommends the software for its multiple uses and benefits at such an affordable price. Jason and Joel also discuss other investment related issues, such as the Affordability Index, cap rates, interest rates, and the different approaches to valuation of properties.

Owning the most historically proven asset class, income property, is getting easier. This new service allows landlords to screen tenants, view credit reports and collect rents from a smartphone or tablet.

Professional property owners now have a one-stop shop for managing their income properties, no matter where they are in the world.

How do families with a high net worth keep, grow and protect their wealth for future generations? They put their families to work in single, family and virtual family offices. The idea behind the resource is to allow the wealth creator of the family enough time and space to create additional wealth while everyday tasks such as investments and insurance can be handled by industry specialists. Basically, when you are ultra-rich you need someone else to manage your daily and long-term financials to avoid possible costly mistakes.

Jason Hartman takes a unique middle ground on the Occupy Wall Street protests since Wall Street doesn’t represent capitalism as the right-wing media would have us believe while the left-wing media who supports big government and big unions doesn’t represent capitalism either. Both sides are promoting a fairy tale.
A recent Facebook post sums it up fairly well: This whole issue really isn’t that simple. I assume that most of the protesters are clueless folks who need haircuts; however, so is the conservative media (that I mostly agree with) in saying that Wall Street represents “capitalism” – nothing could be further from the truth, Wall Street, banks and mega-corporations are mostly ANTI-CAPITALISM in that they are playing a rigged game with lobbyists, government cronyism and insider dealings at every level. They use lawyers, accountants and PR firms to commit their crimes. There is very little capitalism on Wall Street.
If you’re looking for capitalism, look at Main Street, where small business operates under far too much government interference. Jason discusses the powerful “Qualified Written Request” (QWR) letter and how it can be a tool for loan modification, short sale, deed-in-leiu of foreclosure and foreclosure litigation.
You’ll also hear a short article from Jason’s newsletter, The Financial Freedom Report, on that all to upsetting topic of “Too Big to Fail.”

Is there a safe place to invest your money within the Chinese economy? Jason’s guest and author of the new Crouching Tiger book, Dr. Peter Navarro says no. He sees through the beefing up of the Chinese military as a way to distract from the economic failure which is drawing near. China is claiming additional territories and it says it doesn’t want conflict with the U.S., but its strained relations with Japan may force the U.S. into defensive mode. Dr. Navarro says he is surprised none of the 2016 U.S. presidential candidates are discussing the issue and stresses foreign policy should be the number one talking point of the future U.S. president.

This episode can be summed up by the popular saying “Everyone is a genius in a bull market”. Many financial hosts warn against taking on debt to build wealth. Jason clearly illustrates why we should be using fixed rate mortgage as a financing vehicle and outsourcing debt to tenants while enjoying the tax advantages.
Naresh is not a real estate investor, yet. He has come up with some basic, but necessary questions for Jason which will help him and all of you budding, soon to be real estate income property investors out there. Jason reminds us “real estate is the most historically proven asset class” and carefully lays out his answers in easy to understand, common sense terms.

CW 621 FBF – Ending Middle Class Poverty & A Review of ‘War on the Middle Class’ by Lou Dobbs with Jason Hartman
Jason Hartman discusses the destruction of America’s great middle class and how to avoid it. Let’s not let the USA become a banana republic. Jason recommends the book War on the Middle Class by Lou Dobbs and his interviews with Rich Dad author Garrett Sutton and Jim Rogers and then he talks about and article received from Chris McLaughlin: Middle class down this decade.
The first decade of the 21st century will go down in the history books as a step back for the American middle class. Last week, the government made gloomy headlines when it released the latest census report showing the poverty rate rose to a 17-year high. A whopping 46.2 million people (or 15.1% of the US population) live in poverty and 49.9 million live without health insurance. But the data also gave the first glimpse of what happened to middle-class incomes in the first decade of the millennium. While the earnings of middle-income Americans have barely budged since the mid 1970s, the new data showed that from 2000 to 2010, they actually regressed. For American households in the middle of the pay scale, income fell to $49,445 last year, when adjusted for inflation, a level not seen since 1996. And over the 10-year period, their income is down 7%.
Unlike the richest Americans, middle class families have most of their wealth tied up in the equity of their homes, which took a beating in the recession. And high unemployment has left many people with little or no other income at all. At the same time that Americans had less cash to spend, they were also being hit with rising prices for some crucial items. Even accounting for inflation, it still costs more to buy a home, fill your gas tank, go to the doctor and put food on the table than it did only 10 years ago. And not only is it more expensive to live a middle-class life, it costs more to get there too. The price of a college education — still considered the ticket to higher

Mike Fernandez’s family was kicked out of Cuba five years after Fidel Castro took over the government. His family landed in the United States with no money, no food and no place to live. His father was able to get work as a short order cook and after just three years he was able to buy a house for his family to live in. Mike was drafted after one semester in college and after providing his service in the army he worked selling insurance policies door to door. It was there he earned his grit and learned to accept failure.
He is now a billionaire who runs multiple companies at once. He says to succeed, sacrifice must become part of your journey and it is the execution of the smallest detail which can make or break you. He believes the U.S. gives an equal opportunity those all those willing to try.

Technological changes may give real estate investors better tools to access previously unavailable markets, but no amount of technology will ever replace a human’s need for shelter. As long as investors keep their eyes looking forward to the future and stay on top of the increasing number of research tools available they will successfully build a diverse, long-term wealth strategy based upon single family home investment properties.
Jason and the Real Estate Guys take a break from their real estate conference speaking engagements to discuss predictions for the future of the real estate investment market, the influx of tenants looking for rentals and how technology is changing investors ability to see beyond their own backyard and experience the benefit of geo-arbitration.

CW 615 FBF - Upscale Real Estate Development & Success In Tough Times with NY Times Best-Selling Author Frank McKinney
Jason talks with real estate “artist” and 5-time international best-selling author, philanthropist, risk-taker and visionary, Frank McKinney, who sees opportunities and creates markets where none existed before.
McKinney’s first job earned him $180 a week digging sand traps on Deerfield Beach golf course. At age 22, he bought his first $50,000 fixer-upper, selling it a few months later for a $7,000 profit. Now, over 23 years later, he creates real estate markets where others dare to tread. He has built spec homes (without a buyer) valued in the tens of millions of dollars. A true maverick, he is without peer in the risky world of speculative high-end real estate, shattering price records with each new project. And his latest? McKinney just completed “Acqua Liana,” the world’s largest and most opulent triple certified (USGBC, FGBC & Energy Star) “green” mansion at $29,000,000. Each of the estate homes he creates is a one-of-a-kind work of art, infused with vivid imagination and designed on a canvas of sun-drenched Atlantic ocean.
Prior to the completion of his new multi-million dollar “green” mansion, he sold, with an asking price of $50 Million, the largest and most expensive spec home ever created, containing 72 rooms, 32,000 square feet, 12 bedrooms, 18 baths, and a 14 car garage. McKinney has created and sold 36 oceanfront properties with an average selling price over $14 million.
In addition to his real estate artistry, Frank McKinney has now become a five-time international bestselling author. In addition to his first two books, McKinney just released three new books simultaneously, each representing a distinctly different genre. All three books are published by Health Communications, Inc., best known for the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Mr. McKinney’s new titles are; 1.) The Tap, 2.) Burst This! Frank McKinney’s Bubble-Proof Real Estate Strategies, and 3.) Dead Fred, Flying Lunchboxes, and the Good Luck Circle.
His vision and risk-taking has been the subject of numerous international television, radio and print features. McKinney was recently featured on ABC’s 20/20 with Martin Bashir, the cover of USA Today, the Oprah Winfrey Show, CBS’ The Early Show, CNN, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel, HDNet, CBN TV, National Public Radio (NPR), in The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Bloomberg, Fortune, Barrons, Town and Country, Robb Report, The Nightly Business Report (PBS) and in over 1500 additional TV and print stories. Several areas are covered in this exciting episode ranging from real estate, motivation, marketing and spiritual growth. Next up – one of Jason’s all-time favorite mentors, Dr. Denis Waitley, on The Psychology of Winning and The Seeds of Greatness.
