Greetings, friends, all 17 of you!
I hope you’re all taking the time to connect and network with fellow like-minded investors; I do the same as often as possible. My mom, dad, and brother are all investors in real estate, stocks or both.

My teams at Stock Hacker and iWIN Real Estate are all investors in stocks, real estate, and cryptocurrencies. Life is short, so I’m trying to be efficient with my time, spending it with people I can learn from and inspire me. Luckily I married Cherry Chan, so I don’t have to go far for mental stimulation. We even have an informal book club, and we’re both reading Ray Dalio’s Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order.
Most have no interest in such subjects or call us conspiracy theorists…. However, those same people could read a bit more about the history of the world to understand where it’s going to prepare them for what’s to come.
Cherry and I will of course do our part to share what we’ve learnt as to the best practices to prepare for all the government banks like the Bank of Canada and the US Federal Reserve to continue to create new money to fund more spending to the benefit of those with assets while sadly destroying savings and making houses more and more unaffordable to those without assets.
We cover this all in our live and in-person events. Yes, that’s right, we’re back to live and in person, and it feels so good. By the time you listen to this, we’ll have hosted a few dozen investors on an investment property tour in Hamilton to touch, feel, and smell some investment-grade duplexes at different finish stages. One has not been renovated, one has just been renovated, and an existing duplex. Thank you to my team and clients for making this happen!
On Saturday, April 23rd, we will have our real estate meetup where we will be sharing how to renovate for ROI – return on investment, a recent experience on how we won a multiple offer scenario for a client to purchase their new house at a great price. Plus, we’ll announce details about our new joint venture matchmaking program. You don’t want to miss this. Our March meetup sold out as we were at room capacity, and we ran out of chairs, and it was standing room only. So don’t delay; registrations will open shortly for those on our email newsletter.
This past weekend, I had a night out with my investor buddies in downtown Toronto. A group of eight guys like to have fun, eat great food, drink excellent wine, and do fun stuff. We make the time to hang out once per quarter. We didn’t all make it, but six of us did.
We started the night grabbing some drinks and then escaping an escape room with five minutes to spare! This is my first escape room since the pandemic started, and we did awesomely. Time goes by fast in escape rooms and even faster when you’re allowed to enjoy adult beverages and order more while within lol.
Next, we have a fine dinner at Kost, a restaurant on the 44th floor with panoramic views of the city. The food and wine were excellent. From there, the details are hazy but just know fun was had. We chatted a lot about investing in real estate and cryptocurrency. From this night out with the guys, we’re making plans to visit a city in the US to scope out investment opportunities. Nothing wrong with a little diversification south of the border with highly talented investors like my friends.
On to this week’s show!
“I Won’t Live My Life A Victim” From Growing Up On The Reserve to Golden Handcuffs with Jules Mckenzie
On to this week’s show! I’m super excited to have back on the show my friend Jules Mckenzie who I find super inspiring! Unfortunately, I’m just going to warn some of you now, he is a super successful real estate investor, having owned a lot of properties and raised millions and millions of capital to buy real estate in Barrie and Orillia, but he’s a Police Officer with over 30 years of experience, and I know some of you won’t like his opinion about the protests in Ottawa.
Jules shares how he too protested at Parliament Hill, and his experience was very different than what happened earlier this year with the trucker and anti covid mandate protests.
We talk a lot about real estate on this show on tips and tactics, including previous interviews with Jules so feel free to go back and listen to those. Today we focus more on the obstacles Jules has had to overcome being an indigenous Canadian, growing up on a reserve, substance abuse.
If you’ve ever met Jules, you’ll know he’s one of the happiest people you’ll ever meet and have no idea about his tragic past. Still, he refuses to live his life as a victim and is living proof of how important mindset is as Jules has achieved immense financial success.
If you do enjoy the show, which I think you will, please look up Jules Mckenzie on Facebook or Instagram and send him a message letting him know you want to read his book. I don’t think he needs the encouragement, but just in case, as I believe his book will help many people. More than just our 17 listeners, for sure.
Please enjoy the show!
This episode is brought to you by me! We don’t have sponsors for this show, I only share with you services owned by my wife Cherry and I. Real estate investing is a staple in my life and allowed me to build wealth and more importantly, achieve financial peace about the future knowing our retirement is taken care of and my kids will be able to afford a home when they grow up. If you too are interested in my systematic strategy to implement the #1 investment strategy, the same one pretty much all my guests are doing themselves, then go visit www.infinitywealth.ca/events and register for our next FREE Online Training Class. We will be back in person once legally allowed to do so but for now we are 100% virtual.
No need for you to reinvent the wheel, we have our system down pat. Again that’s www.infinitywealth.ca/events and register for the FREE Online Training Class.
This episode is also brought to you www.stockhackeracademy.ca where everyday real estate investors learn the best practices in stock investing to earn cash flow in about 15-30 mins per day from their mobile phones. After real estate, Stock Hacking is the next best hustle as you’ve heard from many past guests on this show. Among our students last year, 31 trades were shared with them. 30 were profitable for an over 96% success rate. I will be giving free demonstrations online, very similar to the one I gave my kid cousin, a full time musician and he just made 50% return in 2021. Past of course does not predict the future but if you’d like a free demonstration go to www.stockhackeracademy.ca in the top right, click FREE Demo. At the demonstration I’ll have special bonuses. We do not advertise publicly for all my favourite listeners and I only have two more demos to give in the next few weeks.
Don’t delay www.stockhackeracademy.ca, what I consider the future of side hustles with real estate so unaffordable for many.
Just a friendly reminder that we are hiring more investment Realtors who want a full-time challenge to help our clients, regular everyday people, mostly from the GTA, invest in the top investment towns west of the GTA.
This is for driven folks who want to multiply their current incomes.

It is our honour to give back and educate others on how we build cash flowing real estate portfolios using all the best practices shared on this podcast, from the lessons of our hundreds of clients and of course our own experience in owning investment real estate.

New investor or seasoned veteran investor, we can help anyone by providing our award winning coaching services and this isn’t all talk.
We have been awarded Realtor of the Year to Investors in 2015 by the Real Estate Investment Network, 2016 by the Canadian Real Estate Wealth Magazine and again in 2017 because no one told the judges no one is supposed to win the award twice but on merit, our peers deemed us as the best. In 2018, we again won the same award by the Real Estate Investment Network.
Hopefully being the most decorated team of Realtors in Ontario will make you consider us for your first or next real estate investment. Even if you don’t invest in our areas, there’s a good chance I know who would be ideal for you.
I’ve been around for a while, some Realtors are talented at servicing investors there are many with great ethics. The intersection of the two, talent and ethics is limited to a handful in each city or town.
Only work with the best is what my father always taught me. If you’re interested, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to meet you at one of our meetups soon.
Again that’s email@example.com
