Have you engaged your Information Network?

How do you create a Support Network?

Do you feel like your business is struggling as a result of the pandemic? Could you use some outside opinions to help kick-start your revenue?

What would your business look like if you could: (1) make your business #1 in your industry, (2) have fun with your peers and mentors, (3) create lasting relationships to help you solve your most burning questions, and (4) create systems to catapult your business to new levels of income?

In this week’s episode, I interview Tiffanie Kellog and Tom Fleming of Asentiv, as we discuss Asentiv Mastermind Communities.

Both are repeat guests on the show.

For the last 15 years, Tiffanie has been helping people save time, make money, while having fun. She is the author of three books, she’s nerdy, and she loves craft beer and socks!

Tom has been coaching individual business owners and groups for more than 20 years. He has literally facilitated thousands if not tens of thousands of meetings. Tom is an expert at asking the right questions that allow people to reach their own conclusions on a path to self-discovery for he believes “For your business to grow, you must grow.”

In today’s episode, Tom, Tiffanie and I talk about:

  • What is Asentiv
  • How did this idea of a Mastermind Community start
  • What is the Goal of the Mastermind Community
  • What are the different types of Masterminds offered
  • People, Programs and Progress
  • Some breakthrough results already created by Asentiv Masterminds
  • The timing, and investment of the Mastermind Community, and
  • Other perks of being a part of the Community.

When negotiating, do you make the first move, or wait for your counterpart to offer first?

When selling, do you ask the prospect how you can help, or let them window shop?

Every six (6) months, my community association has a garage sale. Since garage sales are low-intensity sales negotiations (for most) I use the time to practice a sales or negotiation skill. If I miss, I'm out a few bucks, or I don't make a sale of a few bucks, max.

You can hear previous "garage sale" episodes like:

  • 68 - Negotiation
  • 86 - Presentation
  • 118 - Patience
  • 168 - Preparation

What is your "Approach" when selling or negotiating? That's the subject of this week's episode.

Do you know how to buy property for a fraction of its value?

This isn't some late-night infomercial scam - this week's guest on the Crushing Debt Podcast is Melanie Finnegan of Tax Lien Wealth Solutions, who helps her clients buy tax deed properties.

Tax Deed investing is a great strategy because:

  • You get reimbursed your investment plus some rate of interest, or
  • You get property at a fraction of its value, and
  • Tax Deeds are (check the laws in your state) superior to all other liens including mortgages, judgments, and association liens.

Melanie started her career in tax liens in 2008, perfected her strategies in 2013, and started Tax Lien Wealth Solutions in 2017 with the purpose of adding value, building relationships, and teaching her clients how to put their money into this investment vehicle as a winning strategy.

Melanie is the first female to become a certified tax lien professional by the National Tax Association.

You can visit Melanie's website at www.taxlienwealthsolutions.com or watch their introduction to tax lien video at  https://youtu.be/2Vowd5emhJg

Is there a tidal wave of evictions and foreclosures coming in Florida?

Recently, Florida's Governor DeSantis refused to extend an Executive Order that put a freeze on foreclosures and evictions in Florida, where the payment default was due to a loss of income caused by COVID.

What can someone do who is in fear of being able to pay their bills due to a loss of income caused by COVID?

This week's guest on the Crushing Debt Podcast is attorney Bryant Dunivan of Owen Dunivan. Bryant focuses his practice primarily in the fields of Debtor’s Rights including Foreclosure Defense, Bankruptcy, Fair Debt Collection violations, Fair Credit Reporting violations, and Credit Card/Debt Negotiations. 

Bryant and I talk about the various federal laws that exist that provide protection for borrowers, homeowners, tenants and landlords due to the Coronavirus including: 

  • Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA)
  • Truth In Lending ACT (TIL or TILA)
  • CARES Act
  • CDC Orders & Guidelines

For someone afraid of losing their home or being evicted, please reach out to Bryant or to me to understand your rights during this pandemic.

Bryant can be reached at www.OwenDunivan.com or BDunivan@OwenDunivan.com

What type of student loan do you have? Federal? Subsidized? Unsubsidized? Private?

What repayment options are there? Consolidation? PSLF? IDR? Settlement?

Can a bankruptcy discharge student loans and what are the options available in bankruptcy court?

This week's guest on the Crushing Debt Podcast is Joshua Cohen, the Student Loan Lawyer. Joshua's practice is focused solely on Student Loan resolutions. Today marks the release of his book, The Student Loan Lawyers' Guide to Understanding Student Loans in Plain English.

You can pick up a copy of Joshua's book on Amazon, or at www.TheStudentLoanLawyer.com/the-student-loan-lawyers-book.

Joshua and I discuss:

  • The beta program here in Tampa Bankruptcy Court to resolve student loans in bankruptcy court;
  • What is a PSLF (Public Service Loan Forgiveness) Loan;
  • What is an IDR (Income Driven Repayment);
  • How student loan repayments have been impacted by COVID and the CARES Act;
  • In-roads into bankruptcy dischargeability brought about by some recent case law; and
  • Student loan servicer sanction cases.

Finally, if you want to know what type of student loan you have, which often drives your available workout options, we have a website for you (but you have to listen to the episode to get it).
