However, this loving husband and father-of-three, never set out to achieve real estate dominance or teach wealth strategy. His story may surprise you.

It’s been a bumper few months on The Wealth Faculty and we haven’t come up for her to process all the wisdom shared with my guests over the last few months.
Today is the day we do that! I bring on the show’s producer, Marcus Pearce, to discuss some of the big themes that have come up across a number of episodes. If you’ve listened to a lot of The Wealth Faculty, this episode will be a good “golden nugget” chat. If you’re new, you’ll get an idea of what comes up each week on the podcast.
A really interesting and inspiring chat for you today! From dealing with self doubt, balancing work and family, investing in property and even some acting tips, this conversation with Tim Robards has plenty to feast your ears on.
Tim is a chiropractor, human biomechanics enthusiast, TV personality, speaker, inspired educator in health and wellbeing, all round fitness fanatic and founder of The Robards Method. Tim was initially inspired to health and wellbeing by his grandma through her practice of Chinese massage (hear about that in the interview).
Financially, you’re earning $100k a year and you know you will be able to purchase a property with the equity you’ve built up in your home, but you don’t have enough leftover in your regular pay packet to actually pay off that property long term. So how do people do it then? Is property investing only for the really wealthy with substantial income to spare?
There is no one true measure of success when it comes to property investing. Yield, growth, cash return, more properties, more income, more satisfaction… The list goes on.
How you choose to measure your own success as a property investor is really up to you, and hopefully, at least one part is that you get some real satisfaction or joy or excitement out of it.
But the serious side is money.
Choosing whether to put furniture into your investment properties all comes down to one, big question: Is it going to increase your cashflow?
If it was as simple as throwing a few beds and a lamp in, and suddenly getting hundreds of dollars more rent coming in each month, we’d all furnish every investment property we have.
But we don’t. And there are some important reasons why.
