Free Land to Build, Basement and Garden Suites To Maximize Cash Flow With Andy Tran

Hello, my fellow wealth hackers!!

The secret to happiness is practicing gratitude and I’m grateful I can still go to my Radix Crossfit gym in Oakville. 

I’m thankful several politicians including my local MPP’s who stood up to Doug Ford to not send us back to Stage 2, thus our gyms and indoor restaurants are staying open.

Before anyone gets mad, I get enough hate for doing this podcast for FREE. I’m no anti masker, this is hardly political, but I’ll happily stand up for small businesses since they’re not the source problem. It’s private gatherings and “sources unknown”. 

The sources are unknown because people are gathering in private, getting sick then lying to health officials about it. It’s not rocket science. 

Knowing the greatest source of transmission is private gatherings, why are restaurants and gyms the ones to be shut down and go bankrupt when in my area, they have not been the problem? And from my experience, they’ve invested thousands of dollars and hired additional staff for cleaning, disinfecting and screening.

In my city, the mayor stated how cases are declining below the provincial average and we have ample capacity at our hospitals so why another shut down to put the nail in the coffin of more small businesses.  I really don’t get it. 

Anyways, I’ve always believed talk is cheap and I put my money where my mouth is.

I’m making a $250 donation to MPP Jane McKenna who is not my MPP and I’ve let my MPP know about it.  I let my MPP know that I support leaders who support local small businesses who will stand up to Doug Ford. I’ve said it a couple of times, this pandemic is making people crazy, so that’s enough ranting from me.

The other crazy thing is how not crazy my real estate and stock hacker friends have been. For those who say money doesn’t buy happiness… well apparently it buys sanity. 

Shout out to Shane Layte who DM’d me.  He’s our real estate client and his stock hacking returns this year were 96% but he gave back some to land at 86% currently.  Or his returns are $5,000 less than what he’s earned this year at his 40+ hour job. 

In case I forgot to shout out Ron Esteban, I had lunch with Ron last week, we had him on the podcast just a few months ago but he’ll be coming back asap after he dropped a bomb on me. 

Ron has the highest percentage returns of any stock hacker alumni I’ve seen at 149% but do keep in mind, he’s account was funded by his real estate investments.  You need both real estate and stock hacking to be like Ron Esteban.

Happy Halloween everyone!!

Fingers crossed my costume arrives. I ordered it from Amazon and paid for express shipping. It’s now 9-10 days late. Hopefully, I’ll have pictures to post next week in the badass costume. 

From reading what my friend the infectious disease doctor is saying, we will be walking the neighbourhood with the kids in costume to enjoy the decorated homes. Cherry and I will buy our own candy to give to the kids and hide them around the house Easter egg hunt style. 

I’ll have to figure something that’s healthier as we only let Robin and Bruce eat very little candy so they actually don’t like stuff that’s too sweet as they’re not used to it. So whatever we buy, I have to want to eat it…. Oh boy, I need to get back into the gym more and have my work cut out for me.

In the real estate world, I will be speaking at the Investor Forum hosted by Canadian Real Estate Wealth magazine.

It is my honour to be one of their guest speakers and to share with everyday Canadians the best opportunities in real estate and hopefully, they will indulge me to share about stock hacking… this is the organization that awarded my team Real Estate Agent of the Year to Investors in back to back years 2016 and 2017. 

I will be on an expert panel sharing the when and where and what the best strategies are for 2021 for above market cash flow and returns. 

There is a link in the show notes to join the already 500 Canadians registered for the online conference. 

Full disclosure, it is an affiliate link and any commissions earned will go to my charity the Hamilton Basket Brigade to make sure some poor families in Hamilton will have their best Christmases ever.
