Antonio had a broken childhood as the child of hard working, blue collar immigrant parents who were busy working 60 hour weeks to put food on the table. His story of how he turned it around is full of lessons for anyone out there wanting to turn their fortunes or with troubled teenagers.
And did Antonio ever turn it around graduating university top 10 in his class, got the top co-op placements and great jobs after school.
As he’s a student of some of the greatest investors out there: Warren Buffet, Ray Dalio; he’s in private equity for the Ontario Teachers’ Pension learning from some of the best investors out there and currently works for one of the big five Canadian Banks on Bay Street.
Like myself, Antonio is not loyal to real estate, he’s an investor who happens to prefer real estate for highest returns and best investment thesis.
This is a pretty cool episode and if you know any troubled younger people, you may want to share this with them.
