On to this week’s guest in Mat Piche, he’s a normal guy, third generation carpenter. He used to have a job renovating houses, then he started his own business renovating investment properties for investors. Investors ask Mat if he knew any great investment specialist realtors, he didn’t so he became it. Mat started sharing on YouTube back when fire was invented in 2012 and the rest is history. If you didn’t already know Mat, he’s very successful and he’s here today sharing a ton of tips, tricks, market updates, so have those pens ready. Mat is an open book and he’s dropping gold. I give you Mat Piche
Pascale is a mom and wife living in Ottawa, Ontario. As a young mom and school teacher, the pandemic hit her pretty hard with the decision to keep teaching in a changing environment and sending her young son back to daycare.
My kids were forever sick while in daycare and preschool pre covid. I can only empathize with parents in this environment.
Pascale decided to pivot this past summer to work online in multi level marketing.
I’ve invited Pascale on this show because multi level marketing is a common thread among many investors. Jules Mckenzie has done it. Lynne Tham was a dynamo for Tupperware and I have other friends who’ve been successful in MLM as well who later go onto massive success in real estate. Is it those with side hustles inevitably will be successful or is it the experience and training that translates into success? Maybe a bit of both.
She’s a successful real estate investor as she shares her number on her current project.
I first met Joe Costanza 20 months ago when he was a starry eyed 24 year old who had been hustling since a teenager, working several jobs, living at home to save up down payments for real estate. An architect by trade and having tried several side hustles less than successfully, Joe settled on real estate without much support from his parents.
Fast forward to today, Joe owns three properties, two he’s already duplexed and the third to be duplexed house with a joint venture partner. This is Joe’s story. For those who like numbers, we’re pretty heavy with the numbers in this episode so have your pens ready.
I give you Joe Costanza.
On to this week’s guest, an award winning investor, Kris Lewis
Kris is a dad, husband, multiple business owner who is really into spreadsheets, while grinding through to earn his ‘luck’.
His current priorities include reverse engineering a life he thought was impossible only a few years earlier. His goal from an investment perspective, which massively goes against his personality, is to make his income streams extremely boring.
Kris is a real estate investor focusing on the Durham region, while specializing in duplex conversions,while knowing in the first 30 seconds whether a property makes sense for his long-term strategy.
Kris believes in multiple streams of income as an insurance policy, which makes sense given his chosen profession.
Fundamentally he believes in continuing to educate himself and to learn from what others before him have done. While Kris knows that knowledge is key, he also realizes that embracing fear, making sacrifices and most importantly being ready to take action is an even bigger piece of the financial success puzzle, as evidenced by his 10 moves in the last 6 years.
He’s come to relish the unpredictability of life and the opportunities that present themselves.
Before you go, if you’re interested in learning more about an alternative means of cash flowing like hundreds of other real estate investors have, then sign up for my newsletter and you’ll learn of the next free demonstration webinar I’ll be delivering. It’s a much improved demonstration of the one I’ve given to my cousin Chubby at Thanksgiving dinner in 2019. He now averages 1% cash flow per week.
As a real estate investor myself, I got into real estate for the cash flow but with the rising costs to operate a rental business, it’s just not the same it was 5-10 years ago when I started. Never forget cash flow reduces your risk, the more you have, the more lumps you can absorb and if you have no or limited cash flow, you’ll be paying out of your pocket like I did at a recent basement flood at my student rental in St. Catharines, ON.
If you’re interested in learning more, register for free for my newsletter at http://www.truthaboutrealestateinvesting.ca/ and enter your name and email address on the right side. We’ll include in the newsletter when we announce our next free stock hacker demonstration.
Find out for yourself what so many real estate investors are doing to diversify and increase their cash flow. And if you can’t tell, I love teaching this stuff :)
