The Gold Collar Investor

Dec 20, 2021

In today’s show, Pancham interviews Matt Picheny - aspiring actor-turned-full time investor, operator of thousands of apartment units, and founder of Picheny.

From bagging Tony Awards® as co-Producers of the Broadway shows Moulin Rouge! and American Utopia and investing in broadway productions, he is now back in this show as a full-time investor and the author of his upcoming book “Backstage Guide to Real Estate: Produce Passive Income, Write Your Own Story, and Direct Your Dollars Toward Positive Change''!

In this episode, Matt is back as he shares his transition from being an actor, then working in the tech industry, and finally learning about syndications. He’ll also provide insights on his book as he tackles his catalyst on why he started writing one, why it’s easy to understand (even for beginners!), and real estate concepts that you can look out for!

Listen and enjoy the show!

  1. Investing through multifamily syndications is ideal since it is scalable - unlike in single-family homes wherein it might be quite hard to scale up your investing business.
  2. His book would help investors understand the concepts of investing and could relate to anyone as it starts with his journey and goes through a guide of sizing up syndications.
  3. You shouldn’t trade your time for money as you could always generate money but you couldn't always produce time.
