Hey guys, I’m excited to be launching The Kent Lapp Podcast today!
This podcast will be all about meaningful conversations with those much smarter and more wise than myself; all around Business, Theology & Lifestyle. More on that below.
In the meantime, the first two episodes are up on iTunes if you wanted to give them a listen!: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-kent-lapp-podcast/id1208226880?mt=2
This landed on me like Caribbean sunshine in the dead of winter this morning.
I just couldn’t get past the first seven verses. Is this really what it’s saying?
It’s crazy. Too good to be true, if true.
I hope you find some encouragement here for your day or week. My mind is spinning.
Well babe, we’ve survived ten years & four kids together!
If you’re cool with it I thought we could talk a bit about some of our challenges, learnings, joys and general thoughts from along the way.
I’m assuming that’s a yes, yes?
We’ll go with yes, so here we go.
Recently a friend asked me for book recommendations concerning investing.
This of course prompted my thinking about investing & real estate in particular, my favorite.
I thought it would be fun to run through some actual numbers & discuss the benefits to real estate investing, that other investments simply do not have.
So here is that run-through, in webinar-type format.
It covers some general thoughts, the down-sides to stocks & mutual funds, the benefits to real estate, and closes with looking at real numbers on two actual deals that I’ve done.
I hope it’s helpful, or in the very least entertaining.
I would love to hear your thoughts, questions, problems, or personal investment philosophies.
I intend to truly think through, and articulate (to the best of my ability) what I mean when I say that I am a Christian.
Here’s the truth: I almost cringe to even use the term sometimes…Christian.
My preference would be Christ Follower. Follower of Christ. Born again believer. Child of God. Even simply ‘Believer’.
And I’m not completely sure why that is, although I have a strong hunch.
I recently stumbled across the following question that has maybe changed my life.
It has certainly increased my output.
This will be a rant, and for that I apologize.
I’m sitting on a plane thinking about whether I should even write this or not.
Life is one big learning curve.
At least I hope it doesn’t flat-line anytime soon.
I’m going to process out loud here a bit and list out some things I’ve been learning lately.
Last week we raised the question ‘how should Christians conduct Business in Culture’.
While I’m not exactly sure what the answer to that is, I know one thing that does not set us apart by itself:
This subject has me thinking when I should be sleeping, and that never happens.
What affect should my faith have in my business dealings in the culture I find myself in?
