Hello my fellow wealth hackers!!
Who says you can’t mix business with pleasure??
This past Friday, I hosted Canada’s youngest retiree to come into the iWIN Hub (my office) to record a podcast, show him Stock Hacking, and shot virtual zombies in virtual reality.
This episode was inspired by Mike going on a rant on his Instagram account about his frustration with his real estate: tenant related problems, day to day management of a sizeable portfolio and all its moving parts including property managers and contractors, finding out sex workers were operating out of his short term rentals and related complaints from the neighbours. Add to that the pandemic and it’s hurt on the tourism and short term rental market and student rental market.
I messaged Mike that I was sorry to hear about his challenges and we started talking about stock hacking so I invited Mike to my office to demonstrate for him the strategy, record this podcast episode, have lunch and since he made the 2 hour trip out from London, I figured we would something fun that Mike can’t do in London.
I made a couple suggestions and we settled on Virtual Galaxies, a free roam, virtual reality gaming place in Mississauga. That’s when the hilarity ensued. For anyone who knows me, I’m an oversized child and like to joke around.
The game was zombie apocalypse, we are soldiers armed with virtual guns, we do have a physical game controller shaped like a gun to shoot virtual zombies with. If you seen the movies or TV shows then you know zombies can be aggressive. The objective is to survive, navigate scenes including walking through buildings to get to a roof top so a helicopter can come rescue you all in virtual reality.
The game is intense, fully immersive and not for the timid as Jimmy, Mike’s mentee found out when we had to split up and he had to fend off waves of brain hungry zombies on his own. His dissatisfaction of being on a team of one… well Jimmy was vocal about it while I was crying laughing. It’s been five days since the experience and I’m still laughing about it.
After much feedback from Mike and I’s mutual friends who have already been through Stock Hacker Academy, he’s going to give it a go as well. www.stockhackeracademy.ca if you too would like more information about it. We don’t have any more free demonstrations planned for 2020 but I’ll let you listeners know when we do.

This week’s guest is a returning interviewee in Joel Arndt, when he was on last year, he out of the blue challenged me in my ability to make an investor successful so I had him ask me his questions on the podcast. Some time has since passed and I thought it a good time to check in with Joel on his progress.
Full disclosure, Joel now works with Cherry and I in our businesses and like all employees of ours, we teach them to be Wealth Hackers. We don’t offer pensions but we’ll do our darndest to mentor them to be financially free.
Here is the conversation that came from a simple question when I asked Joel what he would do if he had $150,000 cash to invest.
Have you met Joel Ardnt!?
On to this week’s show, we have Seth Ferguson, a real estate TV Show Host, Podcast Host, author, soon to be second time author, apartment building investor and Stock Hacker.
I first met Seth a year ago when he invited me to his podcast, it’s one of my favourite interviews. Not only is Seth a great producer and great dresser, he came prepared like none other for our interview. Here’s the link in case you’ve missed it:
I haven’t had much free time these days so when folks ask me out for a coffee wanting to know my story, I send them a link to this interview and they’ll learn a lot more about me this way vs. taking me for coffee.
After the interview while Seth wass packing up his kit we got chatting and he mentioned the potholes in his life he’s going to share about in just a moment. You know me, I’m always wanting to help so I invited Seth to take the Stock Hacker Academy the next week, he did but hasn’t done much as these potholes have yet to release back to Seth his capital.
So I invited Seth to our offices at the iWIN Hub for a tutorial and suggested if he wants to learn more he should take the all new 2.0 version of the Stock Hacker Academy and he signed up then and there. The alumni fee is nominal anyways and Seth loves to learn from the best as you’ll hear in this week’s interview.
Seth Ferguson has undergone THE WORST joint venture partnership divorce I’ve ever seen. The only thing more astounding is how high Seth has rebounded in building his influence and real estate portfolio in apartment buildings in the US. If you ever feel down, think of Seth and set your efforts and level of action higher.
I give you Seth Ferguson
