182: Digital Real Estate Investing for Cash Flow

As you know, I’m excited about alternative investments like peer-to-peer lending. And if your aim is to replace your income, I think it makes sense to invest for cash flow.

This week’s Side Hustle Show guest argues when you want something in other areas of your life, you go out and buy it: a pair of shoes, a computer, a new car. You don’t make it from scratch!

So why are we so insistent on building income from scratch? He says there’s a faster way, and that’s to “buy” assets that are already generating positive cash flow.

169: The Best Passive Income Model: Raw Land Investing Update (Part 2)

This is the second in what will (at least) be a 2-part series on side hustlers earning income from their land investment endeavors.

In this special Friday edition of the show, I’m joined by Chris Pritchard. Chris is a software developer by day, but has built his land investing business up to $1500/mo in recurring revenue.

In addition, Chris does the occasional cash flip and also has more than $70,000 worth of land payments under contract. Not bad for a year of dedicated focus and effort!

168: The Best Passive Income Model: Raw Land Investing Update (Part 1)

In episode 108 of The Side Hustle Show last year, we met Mark Podolsky, a real estate investor specializing in raw land. He called it “The Best Passive Income Model,” because there are no products to build, no tenants or toilets, and you can start without a huge upfront investment.

This year, I wanted to feature a couple listeners who took action based on that episode. The first is my friend Josh Brooks, an Army Battalion Commander and founder of The Enduring Charity Foundation.

Peer-to-Peer Lending 5-Year Performance Update

My experiment with peer-to-peer lending at Prosper.com continues, and it’s been another busy year.

The platform has seen some impressive growth, both in terms of the number and volume of “originations,” and the number of lenders competing for the most attractive loans to lend on.

I used Lending Robot to automatically deploy idle cash for all of 2015, which has worked out pretty well so far.
