Course Overview

What type of business entity should you use for your real estate investments in Denver? That is a common question! To help answer this important question, attorney Peter McFarland agreed to do a three-part course on business entity planning for your real estate investments.

Course Price: Free

Completely free. No ads, no upsells, no affiliate links. Just good content! Rather than spending your money on a course, use it to help buy a deal. 

Why do I give it away for free? One reason is that I genuinely enjoy creating content and teaching. It’ll spark conversations and debates that I always learn from. Plus, the more I give, the more I get. Providing valuable information grows my network which increases deal flow and new clients. My goal is to make money from real estate investments and doing deals, not selling “how-to” information.

Two Ways to Learn

If you’re like me, you’re busy and can’t spend hours watching videos on your computer or bounce around between computers, iPads, and iPhones to consume content. To make it easier, I’m presenting this course in two formats.

Two Learning Options!
  1. Listen to the podcast (player at the top.)
  2. Read the blog post. Note, the blog is an executive summary. Get the in-depth breakdown from the podcast.

Both mediums should have the same format and flow. If you’re listening to a podcast but want the details on the numbers discussed, then check the show notes, and go to the blog for all the details!
