Today’s guest, Lane Kawaoka:

Lane Kawaoka currently owns 2,100+ units across the US. He lives in Hawaii and, at the time of this interview, was still working as a Professional Engineer with a MS in Civil Engineering & Construction Management and a BS in Industrial Engineering. However, he recently left his job to focus on real estate investing.

Lane partners with investors who want to build their portfolio, but are too busy to mess with “tenants, toilets, and termites” by curating opportunities in his “Hui Deal Pipeline Club” where his investors have personal access to him and know that Lane is personally putting his money on the line too. The Hui Deal Pipeline Club has acquired over $155 Million dollars of real estate acquired by syndicating over $13 Million Dollars of private equity since 2016.

Lane reverse-engineers the wealth-building strategies that the rich use to the middle class via the SimplePassiveCashflow.com podcast. Lane’s mission is to help hard-working professionals out of the rat race, one free strategy call at a time.

Today’s guest, Matt Chancey, CFP®:

Matt works with high income and high net worth clients nationally to legally reduce taxes on income or capital gains. He starts with tax reduction strategies to determine which best fit the client’s unique situation and often leads into a more comprehensive financial planning or investment management solution that looks not just at what his client’s make, but how they keep more of it.

Matt has been in the finance industry for over 15 years and as well as working directly with high profile clients, he is highly sought after for education, teaching, and guest speaking within the industry. He is a respected advisor and has been featured in many national media outlets including the Orlando Sentinel, The Wall Street Journal, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, CNBC digital, Bloomberg, and Investment News.

Advanced Tax Planning requires a combination of timing, shifting, and IRS codes in combination with tax-advantaged products. Matt Chancey has developed a financial planning process that starts with the ability to defer, reduce or eliminate taxes on income or capital gains. Which allows clients to develop exponentially more wealth purely from tax savings; we call this the tax-alpha advantage.

Our model works in a collaborative nature with other professional advisors such as attorneys, CPAs & EAs, Sell-side M&A and commercial real estate professionals. Our strategies offer clients the ability to retain more of the net proceeds from the sale. If your practice works with clients that are in the top 10% of income or assets – our strategies can drive massive value for your clients and therefore your firm.

Self Directed IRA Investing, with Kirk Chisholm

What is the difference between a traditional IRA and a self-directed IRA? Kirk Chisholm of Innovative Wealth and a regular panelist here on the Money Tree Investing Podcast says “Technically there is no difference. It’s more of a marketing language that people use”.

The self-directed IRA came about years ago as a way to distinguish between an IRA that’s investing outside of the stock market versus an IRA that’s investing in more traditional investments.

Kirk should know. Self-directed IRAs is his specialty. Listen as Joseph Hogue learns more about these interesting and unique investment options and then joins our panel to discuss the “red lights” of what to look out for.

Creating Cash Flow with Jack Bosch

Traditional thinking, as described by the industry and promoted by media, is to save in retirement accounts and live off of Social Security in your golden years.

Jack Bosch describes this as “The Pile of Money Theory”: Work until you are age 65, put 10 percent of your income to the side, and by retirement you will have saved up enough to live without running out of cash.

Jack proposes the “Cash Flow for Life” approach: Money that comes in from the investments you have built such as:

  • Dividend stocks
  • Royalty payments
  • Business investments
  • Real estate

Listen as Jack shares his story out of debt, the strategies they used to generate income, and ultimately purchase assets that provide him Cash Flow for Life.
