In the 1999 movie The Matrix, Morpheus gives Neo a simple choice: take the blue pill and continue living life as everyone does. Or take the red pill, and Neo goes down a different path to find out what is real.
For me, that red pill, blue pill moment was when my father-in-law introduced me to Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad Poor Dad.” I was around 25 years old.
From there, my eyes opened to how increasing my job income meant I paid incrementally more tax. In my opinion, diverting money from government coffers to efficient charities is better for society.
One of the biggest takeaways from the book was that I had a lot more to learn… Even after spending a good sum of money, going into a $30,000 debt and investing some of my best years in formal education, including one of the top business schools in Canada.
Part of my self-development has led me to Marketing and leadership studies. This includes building solid arguments to influence our clients to invest in real estate, stock hack, whole life insurance, Bitcoin, private equities, etc.
Learning how to influence and be an influencer also showed me the dark side. As in how extremists on both left and right sides have used the same methods.
Though despicable, Hitler was a well-studied influencer. As a result, he could rally his followers and take action to kill innocent people. These people risked their own lives and the country’s well-being.
Hitler blamed a select group of people for the economic hardship of other Germans. He capitalized on Germans’ anger, hate, and resentment after the first world war. Nazi ideology centred on the belief in race science and the superiority of the Aryan race – all fake news!
As the saying goes, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Unfortunately, I see this going on today in politics, media, and even social media among those in the real estate investor community.
Personally, I can’t stand being misled or lied to by those who manipulate for gain and share news without fact-checking.
It’s why this podcast is the Truth About Real Estate Investing. Of course, we won’t always get it right, but we will constantly course-correct when new information is available.
If you’re looking for fearmongers, go elsewhere. But if you want facts and data about how to build your wealth efficiently and effectively, then I’ve got you covered.
It’s the right thing to do when I have a community of you, the listener and my clients whom I have a fiduciary duty to…
To provide them with the best information possible to make critical decisions.
Why? Because many of us are betting our financial futures on being right, and in my experience, only a handful of investments work.
Many things can work, I’m looking for passive investments with efficient upside with limited downside. And I want these things for as many people as possible, especially those who have little.
Speaking of investing accessible to those with little, we have Stephen Jagger from Addy Invest.
Fractional Real Estate For As Little As $1 With Stephen Jagger of Addy Invest
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 investment cost. So, folks can invest as little as $1 and max $1,500 per project. Yup, that’s right!

It’s definitely an interesting story to follow.
