Accountant Michael Johnson also joins Tim and Alex to discuss the learning curves of property investing, including the need to understand the impact of rising interest rates, the dynamics of property markets and demographics and the important things to understand with budgeting and cash flow.

They also discuss the key things learnt along the way as well as the peaks and troughs that created a significant impact in Alex’s life, why Alex needed to ‘scrape the change’ to gain a clear focus on his future, and why he eventually learnt to remove emotion from property investing.

You will also find out how to avoid the same mistakes Alex made, the most important things to be aware of and the pitfalls of stretching yourself too thin.
