We are BAAACKKK! And we survived FOUR days and three nights in Las Vegas!!! LOL
I have a group of real estate buddies I hang out with for several reasons, we all like to have fun, we have flexible work schedules to meet during the week so we can reserve weekends for work and family, and most importantly we love to talk business and real estate. Business and pleasure wrapped into one, dropped in the middle of the Las Vegas strip for some masterminding and fun.
The masterminding could have been better as it took much of a back seat to the fun HAHAHA. The initial plan was to block off six hours allotting 30 mins for each member to share their 2017 accomplishments and 2018 goals. Unfortunately, like the vodka we were drinking, those 30 minutes were distilled down to 5-6 minutes each. That was all the time we had to spare. Those who presented first enjoyed a how you say, more sober audience...
We hit a club, gambled, ate many great $15 steaks, saw O: the Cirque de Soleil show, shot some automatic machine guns, raced some exotic cars, mine was a Lamborghini Huracan, zip lined the length of Freemont St., rode ATV’s in the Nevada desert, dined at the Heart Attack Grill, we fought zombies in a live urban warfare simulation, enjoyed a libation or twenty, etc… what we didn’t do was sleep much so I personally slept about 25 of the next 48 hours when we got home.
It all started with Westjet announcing direct flights to Las Vegas from Hamilton Airport and our return flight was only $300!!! We then price shopped everything and Groupon’d almost of the activities.
The real estate investor in me enjoyed touring through the hotels thinking how grateful I was other gamblers were paying for me to enjoy the beautiful casinos as my gambling losings only totalled $15. I don’t gamble. I mean it’s fun but I’m more interested in earning returns like investing in real estate.
The trip was simply epic. We shared a ton of laughs and a very, very memorable trip. I can’t recommend Hamilton Airport enough and I thought our hotel New York, New York was great for our frugal purposes.
On to this week’s podcast!
The Millennial Retirement Plan: Seven Houses at Age 33 w Sarah Larbi
Welcome ladies and gentlemen investors across Canada, the greatest country in the world. My name is Erwin Szeto, aka Mr. Hamilton bringing you the Truth About Real Estate Investing show for Canadians where it is my job to bring you the tactics, education and lessons of real estate multi-millionaires. What makes these people successful? These world class entrepreneurs don’t have superpowers so let’s find out together how they are killing it so we too may reproduce their results to create financial freedom for ourselves and those closest to us. So lets get to it!
Sarah Larbi, is technically a millennial but is a contradiction to the stereotypes as she’s always working at her job, portfolio or self development AND she doesn’t have any social media accounts. She’s a long term buy and hold investor whom focuses on cash flowing properties and buying under market value whenever possible. She has done this by being a market expert in one specific area; Brantford Ontario, and building a solid team of qualified professionals around her.
Sarah is also the co-founder of the SO REIT Club which holds monthly networking and real estate education meetings for investors. Sarah was also featured on the cover of the Toronto Star in June 2017 for being a young millennial building a portfolio of properties through hard work, dedication and commitment without the help of parents or relatives.
