On to this week’s show!!
We have two regular guys, one is a mechanic, another a soon to be retired Accountant and hosts of the Financial Independence Garage Podcast. They’ve both under 50 and have a lot of financial security thanks to their multiple streams of income, beyond just real estate and their frugal lifestyles.
The Mechanic and the Accountant are pseudonyms to protect their privacy from employers and you can guess, those are the jobs for which they make a living.
On this show, they share how they’ve achieved financial independence from work, details of their real estate investments including out of province investments, private lending, Stock Hacking, crypto, fractional real estate via Addy Invest. They both share when investments did not go to plan and the lessons.
You can find them on most social media platforms by searching FI Garage and of course in the show notes I post online and in my email newsletter.
Quick disclaimer, we are all consuming adult beverages containing alcohol in this episode, if that doesn’t tell you none of what is discussed is licensed financial advice then I don’t think anything will. We are sharing our experiences only, past of course does not predict the future unless it’s real estate which always goes up. I’m only kidding, it only goes up most of the time ;)
Onto this week’s guest, MCW, Michael Collins Williams he is a professional planner and the CEO of the West End Builders Association and previous to that spend 17 years at the Ontario Home Builders Association.
He is of course an expert in Planning and Policy and he is here today to share several facts and figures to what is causing the housing crisis and where the challenges and opportunities are for the everyday investor. I follow Mike on Twitter @mikejcw and recommend all do the same.
Please enjoy the show!
Stephen Jagger is an entrepreneur, author and speaker. As co-founder and CRO of addy, he’s making real estate investment accessible to everyone.
These guys are applying technology to real estate investing to Canadians, bringing down the cost to invest and folks can invest as little as $1 and max $1,500 per project. Yup that’s right, this model is very different from other private investments as Addy wants lots of investors vs. traditional investments want very few investors contributing large amounts.
It’s definitely an interesting story to follow.
As always folks, these are investments that come with risks, nothing is guaranteed in life let alone investments, past does not predict the future, we are here just to share experiences and what investors are up to.
