When was the last time you complained about something at work? What happened? How was your complaint dealt with? Were you happy with the outcome? Sometimes in business, it’s impossible to keep everyone happy all the time. Sooner or later, an eruption will happen.

Welcome to the final episode of Season 6! Boy, it felt like a one hundred-episode season because it took a long time just to get to episode 40! HA! But wow, so happy that it was well-received by many of you out there. Although it takes a week for podcast plays to eclipse 100 plays per episode, I’ve gotten hundreds of more cities around the globe to tune in. Well, let’s finish this season with a BANG before going into Season 7!
If you have all of your assets in one market, if a downturn happens, such as what happened at the beginning of COVID, there could be a ridiculous amount of problems with your portfolio.

So, how can you have diversification not only in assets but also in income management? Tune in!
