Every morning the first content I consume is business or self development books. I’m loving the app Blinkist right now (thank you @tashamonaghan71 for the recommedation). Super cheap and summarizes much of the greatest books in history. The screen capture is Eat That Frog by one of my favourites @thebriantracy. Pretty much the perfect book to start the day.
I just downloaded “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie as it’s been a while since I last read it and the book keeps coming up in my coaching of other investors and coaches on my team. The lessons from this book have enabled me to attract mentors, be a better leader to clients and employees, build relationships with contractors and celebrities in our industry.
Getting guests on this podcast to deliver you all the best information is no cake walk either as everyone’s time is precious. Many guests need some coaxing and cajoling as we have no budget to offer speaking fees LOL.
Speaking of budgets and celebrities, if I were to hire a guest speaker, a real estate personality to come speak at my event, come on the podcast. Who would you want that to be? E.g. a panel member of Dragon’s Den, Brian Balmer, Mike Holmes, the Property Brothers, or someone unrelated to real estate. Please let me know! Reply to one of my emails or hit me on social media. I’m on Instagram and Facebook mostly.
If you’d like to take a deeper dive, meet and see myself and other guests of this show live and in person then get on the invite list for the Halton REI networking meetings at Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. Past and most talked about guest Jay Gabrani will be our keynote speaker sharing how real estate saved his life and the strategies he implemented to do so including option trading and private lending. To get on the invite list go to www.HaltonREI.ca, will out the form and you’ll receive our monthly invitations.
Also, if you would like to receive our new episode notifications to your email inbox you can do so by going to TruthAboutRealEstateInvesting.ca and input your name and email. Simple as that!
We are all over the map in attempting to catch up to what Quentin D’Sousa is up to in life and investing. That’s what happens to full time investors, one does not need to focus as much on one geographic location or strategy when you have a 40-50 hour week to grow a real estate business.
Quentin shares on a bunch of topics including how and what he looks for when doing deals, tips on renovating from having done 50-70 major renos, his fitness and weight loss journey, he’s already lost 90 pounds this year with a 10km race coming up.
