A little tour through the podcast
More than 600 learnings, 43 concrete and timeless laws of success, all packed with stories and examples that illustrate the experiences – you could never summarize this in a review. But I want to show you where the journey is heading, if you listen carefully to all the podcasts that follow as a person who is at the beginning! The book will be much more detailed in many places and also discusses topics of a higher level if you already own 3 or 4 properties.
This little tour is for those who are at the very beginning: “In 5 years without equity to become a real estate millionaire”.
Minimum set and financial freedom
Financial freedom, isn’t that a great feeling? You can decide spontaneously at any time, a power day with a colleague in the office, a short holiday to the Cote d’Azur or spontaneously build up your own network by visiting Berlin or London? Every day is yours! But financial freedom does not just mean “a lot of money”, financial freedom gives you the freedom to be creative and to create. The worst thing for an entrepreneur are achieved goals! Therefore you should not focus on your goals, but on what lies behind them: Your mindset, your ideals, your purpose. If you are clear about this, your next goal is not to submit to the premise “time for money”. Your big goal must be to have 30 free days a month.
cash flow, equity, the first property
If you listen to the free audio book “Richer than the Geissens” very carefully, episode by episode, leaving nothing out and listen to important parts two or three times, then you will learn all the tools to achieve this goal and then expand on it. About your own mindset, your ideals, your relation to money, the most effective use of your own for others by working out the above mentioned purpose, your list of strengths, resources, but also your list of market niches. From this combination of insights you will recognize the most efficient added value you can offer. From this you will create your first good cash flow, increasingly passive cash flow and at some point you will build up your equity, buy your first property and you will know how to use a property as an investment tool.
At this point directly emphasizes again that you listen to all the consequences, from the first to the last. Take enough time and repeat individual episodes or passages if necessary.

Extremely much know-how and story
Real estate millionaire Alex Fischer gives extremely deep insights but also personal ones. As in Evolume 41: The blind swimmer. Whenever he is about to give up, he thinks of this one fascinating story of perseverance, his personal “perseverance doping”. Briefly told it is about a man. He lived with his wife in India in the 70s. His wife fell seriously ill. Unfortunately they lived at the foot of a mountain. There was no way over the mountain, which would have been hardly a kilometre as the crow flies. Since there was no path, he had to walk around the foot of the mountain with his sick wife in his arms. She died. He swore to himself that no man should ever lose his wife again, just because he would not make it to the doctor in time. So he began to remove the first rock walls. After 22 years he milled his way through the cliffs of the mountain – what an achievement! After 22 years, he had actually built a walkway. Not for himself, but for others.
On the one hand, one learns will and stamina from history. If he has such a great achievement, how can I hang myself on small problems? On the other hand the little story shows that being happy does not depend on one’s own well-being, the environment is at least as important for a happy life. Mindset is everything. You see, it’s not just about entrepreneurial principles, but above all about Mindset!
Your goal: “With 0 Euro starting capital in 5 years to become a real estate millionaire.” – Alex Fischer.
Mindset, tools and best practice real estate
The book has three parts.
- Mindset and important basic knowledge as the entrepreneur of your life
- Basic tools for you as a manager of your own life
- How to recognize and set up a money machine, here the example of real estate
But one of the most beautiful sentences at the beginning is this one:
“If someone were to say, Alex, you have 450 pages to pass on to your son, what would you write down? – Alex Fischer
It takes a lot to be successful. It’s not a single note that you have to play, but a chord, a multi-tone, according to Alex Fischer. According to Alex Fischer, after decades of searching, there are 43 regularities that one must absolutely let sound simultaneously. Then you have fun and money. One can neglect 2, 3. If you disregard more than 5 rules, you stand on the brakes. If you ignore more than 15, life is exhausting, tiring and frustrating. If you break just five of these rules, you end up on the street. These 43 laws and principles are discussed in parts 1 and 2. Partly millennium old laws and new, modern principles. They are valid all over the world.
The biggest mistake, from his observation, is that everyone is looking for a money machine. These weigh tons and are built on large foundations, a lot of IT, a lot of effort. Even if someone gives them to you, how do you want to install this big machine without your own foundation, without maintenance knowledge and how to put it into operation? Even if you have the machine, it won’t work without foundation and maintenance. An entrepreneurial foundation is essential. If you ask entrepreneurs, they always talk about the money machine, not the foundation, but the logistics. Like a fish, you don’t notice the water around you unless it’s gone.
An example: 6,500 m² property (shopping centre) bought for 1.2 million euros. This investment has an annual target rent of 500.000 Euro. That means the property pays for itself in 2.5 years, another year for the tax and from then on 500.000 Euro cash flow per year will be available for free disposal.
To build wealth and prosperity, I recommend Alex Fischer. His content density and know-how is simply incredible.
Dirk Kreuter (Europe’s No. 1 sales trainer and Speaker of the Year 2011)
Alex Fischer has extremely accelerated my personal and business development. His book shows a well structured map with abbreviations to your goals. Help yourself. Block quota.
Hendrik Klöters (Founder of AMRAP Fitness and the Entrepreneurial Channel
Alex Fischer is a lateral thinker. The knowledge in his book goes far beyond real estate investments. It shows you how to become successful and happy in your professional and private life.

The book: Learnings
What goals drive us as people, but also as entrepreneurs? In episode 6: Your personal real estate opportunities Alex Fischer discusses the very basic goals that drive us, especially with regard to real estate. Anyone who listens to the podcast “Richer than the Geissens” is pursuing one goal in particular: making money with real estate. Later in the podcast, it goes much deeper into your mind set. At the beginning of the podcast it says “Recognize your personal opportunities in the real estate market”, i.e. which segments, opportunities and goals make sense for you personally?
In the podcast, Alex Fischer mentions many different motives that can drive you, from carefree retirement to cash flow through real estate on a grand scale. You want to:
- Improve your later retirement as effectively as possible,
- Convert taxes and duties into private assets,
- Earn or improve your living with real estate agency,
- Generate additional cash flow before retirement,
- Be able to live from the cash flow of rental income or
- Like Alex Fischer, you earn your living by selling real estate.

positive thinking: mindset
Basically, the implementation of your goals is about a positive mindset. What do above-average happy people have in common? They take their life, their work, but also their relationships playfully, according to Alex Fischer. Why were Alex Fischer, Boris Becker, Michael Schumacher but also Reinhold Messner himself sad?
“It was the success that ended the game.” – Alex Fischer
Repeating this game is boring and does not give the same satisfaction. Felt it goes only downhill from now on. “Only” making more money doesn’t make you happy anymore. The big question:
“What do you enjoy? What makes you happy?” – Alex Fischer
Basic rules of Alex Fischer – His basic rules from episode 7 in the podcast “Richer than the Geissens”: Positive thinking: Mindset
Alex Fischer begins by asking, “How the hell do you find your purpose?” In episode 16. How to find your Purpose. It’s about you no longer “only” pursuing goals. You’ll learn what that means in episode 16, here’s a little insight:
Henry Ford’s dream was for everyone to drive a car. With the assembly line, he transformed the car into a mass product for everyone. Steve Jobs wanted to give everyone a tool to put a dent in the universe. Currently, Apple is the most valuable company on Wall Street, with a market value of 920 billion dollars. With computers, MP3 players, but also the smartphone, Apple revolutionized the digital entertainment and mobile phone industry.
- Read on: Your purpose
If you repeat something thousands of times, you develop a habit. If you suddenly decide against it and start a new concept 2 or 3 times, you will quickly realize that the habit usually prevails, according to Alex Fischer in episode 21: Analyze your beliefs.
As with smokers, a thousand times the cigarette was “relaxed”, “tasty”, etc. Suddenly you want to stop smoking. What happens? You decide against it 2, 3, 4 times and then you start smoking again. Simply because you said “I want to smoke” a thousand times.
A lot of people believe that money is bad. Not in that exact wording, but in this context.
It’s no use going one belief against another.
The solution is that “You dissolve old and outdated beliefs by means of awareness”.

Build and successfully operate a money machine
As described above, this review is about the 3rd part of “Richer than the Geissens”. Be sure to listen to part 1 and part 2 as well, otherwise you will not understand many of the principles and strategies in part 3. I also streamed the audio book in several stages. That means distributed listening to really internalize all the learnings, as well as repetitions of individual episodes that are very interesting for me. The 3rd part is then about building your money machine. In more than fifteen episodes you will learn how to create your own business model that generates passive income, including the topic of real estate as an investment tool and… but let’s start at the beginning. Here are a few of the many, many learnings you get in the podcast “Richer than the Geissens” by Alex Fischer himself.
But first it is important to set up a big goal. You will quickly understand this goal while listening to the podcast.
“30 days off per month!” – Alex Fischer
This may sound unrealistic at first, but if one looks at the passive money flows installed step by step, this goal quickly seems to make sense. Because, as already learned in episode 43, the “self-employed” and “entrepreneurs” are different. The self-employed spend their time on money. Entrepreneurs create structures and machines that earn money.

Small rivers become large ones
How often do you yourself face the problem: “You can’t see the forest for the trees”. A building site here, a building site there, in private life and especially as an entrepreneur. I found this quote myself, as short and simple as it is, extremely constructive and motivating. With regard to my own work, projects but also to further aspects such as public relations or viral effects:
“Small rivers become big rivers.” – Alex Fischer
As confusing as one’s own work often appears, especially when setting up companies for the first time, everything gradually comes together. Alex Fischer also brings many interesting aspects to this, for example this one:
- How much do you think you can handle tomorrow? – You’ll overestimate yourself.
- How much do you think you can do in a year? – You will underestimate yourself.
