Hello ladies and gentlemen investors from across Canada, welcome to another episode of the truth about real estate investing, where it is my pleasure to bring to you investor stories to educate, inspire and maybe even entertain.  This week we have a guest referred by a friend of the show in Amy Halpenny, she’s new to real estate investing but she shot out of a cannon acquiring five properties in just over six months in Collingwood and the Durham Region converting each of them to add secondary suites for a total of ten units.

On-the-job Amy combines strategic ‘big picture’ thinking with well-honed management skills, operational know-how, and a relentless persistence to get 'er done.

Previous to real estate, Amy worked in small business and start-ups for over 15 years in strategy, sales, marketing and operations.

In this interview we talk about Amy’s reasons for investing, the courses she took and how it helped, how her investing strategy will insulate her from market corrections.

Hello ladies and gentlemen investors from across Canada, this week we have a special guest in an old friend Oliver Manalese. I’ve known Oliver for many years dating back to my first year at REIN in 2008 and he no longer invests in real estate. Just to confirm, you are indeed listening to the Truth About Real Estate Investing show and one of the truths of the investment business is it’s not for everyone. In Oliver’s case, he built a successful business, made a bunch of money doing so, and later decided to change directions.

 

Since 2012, Oliver Manalese is a Breakthrough Coach. He coaches, consults and trains creative leaders in a process of Aligned Reinvention. Through breakthrough insights, intuitive guidance, and transformational tools, his clients create lives and businesses that reflect their deepest purpose on this planet.

 

His work is based in Ontology. Simply put, he looks at the different ways we are being and how it determines our reality of what is possible and not possible. In today's culture of hustle, overwork, and never enough, being is the key component that's missing. Returning to being is what translates into a greater sense of presence, flow, and trust in the unfolding of our unique process.

 

In this episode we talk about a variety of topics: how rent-to-own works, how Oliver raised capital as a 22 year old with limited start up capital, how real estate taught him about entrepreneurship, the importance of personal development and growth. He was so good at the business, other investors sought out Oliver to hire him to be their investing coach.  This led to  Oliver’s aha moment of wanting to help people in a more fulfilling way as the full time break through coach that he is today.  Apparently it’s working as for both personal or professional projects, Oliver’s clients report having a greater sense of inner peace, satisfaction, confidence, joy, and abundance.

 

So without further ado, I introduce to you, Oliver Manalese

 

Oliver is also host of The Oliver Manalese Show, a podcast that dives into the breakdowns and breakthroughs of influential people. Guests include accomplished entrepreneurs, coaches, and authors who vulnerably share their genuine challenges and the insights that empowered them to breakthrough.

Sponsor and ACRE Discount Code

This episode is brought to you by the Real Estate Investment Network, or REIN for short. I’ve personally been a REIN member since 2008 and in Toronto on April 21st-23rd is the well renowned ACRE program. ACRE stands for Authentic, Canadian, Real Estate and it’s the best weekend of real estate training I’ve attended. Additionally, it’s not thousands of dollars like other, similar events. I like ACRE weekend so much this will be my tenth time in attendance. The education is that good and the networking is even better!

As a special gift to our listeners, founding partner of REIN, Don Campbell, has provided you all a discount code to save $300 off the public’s price at $687 – which is already fantastic value! You listeners only pay $387 by entering discount code ERWINSGUEST when you purchase ticket from reincanada.com. Again, that’s April 21st-23rd for the best weekend in real estate investment training for $387. Link: http://info.reincanada.com/toronto-acre-2017#pricing

Thanks for reading (and listening!) and hope to see you at ACRE!

Hello ladies and gentlemen listeners from across Canada! Welcome to another episode of the Truth About Real Estate Investing where it is my job to bring you lessons from the streets, provide you education on all things real estate investing, inspiration, and maybe some entertainment.

This week we have a very special guest, a multiple time best selling author, the best selling Canadian real estate author in history but he doesn’t just write, he knows what he’s talking about. Don is a veteran investor, a teacher, a Philanthropist, market analyst and in his free time, Don pursues his passion which is organic farming and not just plants but livestock as in cows and such.

Don has spoken to tens of thousands of people on stages all over North America, Australia, Ireland sharing his analysis, his strategies and his life philosophies. When the national media: CBC, BNN, CTV, Global News, Financial Post, Globe and Mail, Sun Media, etc… wants an unbiased comment on the real estate market, they go to Don in his role as Senior Analyst of the Real Estate Investment Network a company that has provided detailed forecasts and analysis of housing markets across Canada for over 24 years.

Today, my goal is to build upon the interview we did, episode 2, 12 months ago, I suggest you listen to it if you haven’t already. Today we dig more into economics, more specifically about the craziness going on in our major markets, what’s causing it, that one book we all need to read (and no, it wasn’t written by Don), what it was like investing in the 80’s when interest rates were in the double digits and climbing.  We also get deeper into Don’s story, to drag out some tips and strategies you may not have heard before.  You’ll find this a fast-paced discussion, so I suggest you get your note paper ready.  Without further ado, let me welcome Don Campbell to the podcast.
