In this episode of The Daily Real Estate Investor, host Josiah Smelser has a conversation with friend Adam Copeland. In a change from the usual format of the podcast, Josiah is interviewed by Adam, who is developing his own podcast and wants to feature Josiah in one of its early episodes. Adam is starting his podcast project with 10 conversations with people ranging from old friends to entrepreneurs. Josiah encourages listeners to check out Adam’s podcast, The Adam Copeland Podcast.
Adam starts the interview with questions about Josiah’s podcast. Josiah clarifies that his podcast developed out of his love for podcasts, interest in and knowledge of real estate, and a desire to cast a wide net of interest for his upcoming book. Josiah also loves to be creative and to take on projects that will stretch the boundaries of his comfort zone, and he loves to give to others. His long-term hope is to achieve a greater level of financial freedom that will enable him to find exciting ways to help people.
After discussing Josiah’s podcast work, Adam takes a step back and asks Josiah about his background. Josiah explains the broad strokes of his life from college onward, including his undergraduate years, time spent in Rwanda, seasons of work in appraising and teaching, and the starting of his family. Through this account, Josiah explains how he developed his interest in real estate. He also describes some details of his current life, including ways in which he tries to give back to his community.
Adam asks Josiah about books that have shaped him, television shows that he enjoys, podcasters that inspire him, and dream guests for his own podcast. Josiah shares about what has influenced him and recommends helpful resources like his eighth podcast episode with Brandon Turner and by researching Your Money or Your Life, Meditations, Gary Vaynerchuk, Tim Ferriss, Bigger Pockets podcast, Warren Buffett, and Mr. Money Mustache.
Josiah concludes the episode with questions for Adam. Adam recommends that Josiah’s listeners explore the article “The Case for Reparations,” and he and Josiah speak about one shared regret from their younger years.
