Networking and Learning Events

Here are the events that I've attended and learned from. I am super grateful for all of the information and positive energy that was shared with me. I look forward to upcoming meetings!

Please ping me if you'd like to meet up or recommend a new way for me to learn and grow. I am excited about hearing from you.

  • June 19, 2018 - Learned some great tools at the The Financial Toolbox, Your Best Business Guide to Less Tax Greater Profit and More Time seminar by a fellow author Jessie Christo. Also got a free copy of Jesie's best selling book!
  • June 14, 2018 - I attended Flipout Academy's monthly meet up. It was amazing! Properties are flipped on the spot. Prices are so drastically lower, compared to Canada. I'm now looking into investing in the US. At the event, I met a few really great investors, vendors, and service providers. It was a lot of fun to be there.
  • June 13, 2018 - My first time speaking about "Just Over Broke" at Let's Chat About Real Estate meetup. There was about 40 attendees. The presentation went great! I was a little bit nervious:)
  • June 7, 2018 - Attended a Wealth Building Luncheon and a great presentation on Long Term Care private exempt market investment opportunity. The business model that the presenter explained is very similar to my own, but just on a much bigger scale! The goal this LTC fund is pursuing is to get to 5,000 beds (100 times more than my goal of 50 doors).
  • June 1 - 3, 2018 - Black Card Books' mastermind in Toronto. Spoke about my experience being an author of an upcoming book. Met lots of people who are interested in 50 Doors as well as my Just Over Broke book.
  • May 25 - 27, 2018 - Black Card Books' mastermind in Atlanta, GA. Great learning experience! Picked up lots of tips regarding marketing. My first time speaking about my book to fellow authors.
  • May 10, 2018 - Attended a meet up by Mortgage Clinic and learned about multi-family investment in Hamilton. Exit strategy wasn't very appealing to me in this private offering.
  • May 4 - 6, 2018 - Black Card Books' mastermind in Montreal. Re-learned the material on how to use my book to give me more authority.
  • April 24, 2018 - At this meet up I learned about 2 Ways to Make Quick Cash in Today's Real Estate market: Rent to Own's and Flips. Even through these strategies are short-term, it was incredible to find out in so much detail how much effort, knowledge and persistence goes into making RTO and Flip projects work. One of the presenter's favourite sayings is "Flip is the F word of Real Estate" and it now makes sense to me.
  • April 11, 2018 - Let's chat about real estate monthly meetup. It was awesome to learn about vertical splits and hang out with like minded people. My first time thinking to myself: "Wow, opportunities are truly abundant!" Several members discussed that they see more deals than they can take advantage of! Swing by this meet up, maybe you can pick up one of those deals and make it work the way you need.
  • April 7 - 8 - VIP Business Mastermind class by Gerry Robert. Yes!!! the Gerry Robert. The author of motivational classic The Millionaire Mindset: How Ordinary People Can Create Extraordinary Income. At the event, we studied a 4-tier business model that can give a boost to almost any entrepreneur's business. It was fascinating and inspiring to be around Gerry Robert and  Barry Spilchuk. I learned enough to work on for the next three years!
  • March 15, 2018 - Eye opening presentation at Mortgage Clinic by Mathew Frederick. This was a second event I attended this week with focus on Joint Ventures. So far, I've been skeptical about partnering with others. At this event, I finally clearly understood through several Mathew's examples how natural and beneficial partnerships can be. If you can't do it alone, find how you can do it it together with a partner! Do what you like doing and seek out others who love doing the rest.

  • March 14, 2018 - Let's chat about real estate monthly meet up.  If you are interested in adding secondary suits, this was a must-see presentation by Mandy Branham. Mandy completes 15+ projects per year!!! She is not only a machine, but also a super-human. Most of these projects are JV's and Mandy makes sure all parties are happy and content about the outcome. 

  • February 27, 2018 - Reaching New Heights with Canadian Real Estate meet up. I learned a LOT at this event. Please read about tax traps to avoid when doing a flip (property flip that is, not a human flip).

  • February 13, 2018 - Let's Chat About Real Estate Meet Up. Unfortunately I missed this event. I hope I'll go to the next one!

  • January 24, 2018 - Toronto REIN (Real Estate Investment Network) Member Meeting.
    • At this event, I learned about current rental and housing market, GTA market projections by CHMC, the importance of being prepared for a life emergency, and how to plan, prepare and perform in 2018. Read my recap here.

  • January 16, 2018 - Get a Leg Up on the 2018 Real Estate Market. Learn to Read the Cycle.
