Building a Brand of Influence, Alberta Market Update with Best Selling Author Russell Westcott
Speaking of my favourite hedge against inflation, real estate, I don’t know many people who own more real estate than today’s guest in Russell Westcott. He’s been through a lot of economic cycles being an Edmonton, Alberta real estate investor. Russell is an old and good friend of mine so it’s always great to catch up on what he’s up to to help people out. He’s possibly the top real estate investor coach out there and it helps that he’s owned over 100 properties and co-authored the best selling book “Joint Venture Secrets.” Admittedly, I don’t invest in Alberta and my outlook is bearish on the oil industry. With the growing popularity of electric vehicles and carbon taxes, I don’t see the demand for oil keeping up, not with Ford and GM planning to be all electric by 2035. But I’m not an expert and I’m always keen on listening to opinions different from mine.

From Pumping Gas for a Living in Ontario to Moving to Edmonton as a Full Time Investor and Opening a Bank With Wayne Hillier
Now we recorded this interview almost a month ago so I’ve asked Wayne for a quote on the pending Keystone pipeline cancellation. He says it sucks. LOL. Another good friend of mine tells me Alberta invests heavily into renewable energy so do your own research and decide for yourself. Wayne Hillier has been investing in Edmonton and Leduc since 2015. He’s a dad, husband, landlord. He’s the host of his own podcast the Real Estate Investor Dad Podcast. He’s starting his own bank, I think that’s a first for this podcast, and he’s got a great story how it all got started while he was living in a basement and pumping gas for a living.

Leaving Corporate By Investing in Condos, Then Duplex Conversions, Then Apartment Building Conversions, Six Figure Side Hustle Stock Hacking With Martin Kuev
This week we have my old friend Martin Kuev on the show. Martin like many had a young family, a well paying job in corporate, started a side hustle investing in condos and progressed into renovating single family homes to create basement apartments, then again levelling up into serious apartment building renovations for highest and best values. Definitely innovative stuff so I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did. We talk about life, the challenges of Martin leaving his executive corporate job just after having twins, Martin’s new side hustle he learnt from the Stock Hacker Academy and earned him six figures in his first year, and we chat a bit about crypto currency as Martin’s close friend is high up at Ethereum. As I record this, the date is New Year and I’d like to take a moment to say farewell to the year 2020. The pandemic changed our daily lives and will continue to do so in 2021. I am grateful to have my investopreneur community, our clients, students of Stock Hacker Academy and you the listener. I was afraid like everyone else, we deferred a mortgage or two, I took a CERB payment which I’ve since paid back. But servicing this community kept me focussed. There was no time for us. I had to find answers as to what was going on on the streets both real estate and stock market hence we had our emergency series of webinars (my apologies for the poor connection, my internet hasn’t been the same since the pandemic started). Those webinars, the podcast, our iWIN meetings were my outlet for my focus and to share. To share with you the best best practices and help you all be successful wealth hackers. That’s always been my #1 goal. The road was definitely rocky but with the vaccine here and being rolled out and how our investment behaved… I think that’s the ultimate testament we are investing the right way and that only has me more optimistic for the future of our collective investing in 2021. I know my clients are in real estate and stock hacking are optimizing their returns and I hope you are too. this week we have my old friend Martin Kuev on the show.

From Immigrant, To Single Mom, To Apartment Building Investor, Award Winning Real Estate Broker, To 6 Figure Stock Hacker With Khatera Osman
Her story is pretty amazing but she wouldn’t tell you it is. Khatera was born in Afghanistan, a war torn country but thankfully her family was able to immigrate to Germany, from there Khatera moved to the greatest country in the world and became interested in real estate. She became a real estate agent, then built an award winning team, started investing in condos and graduated to apartment buildings East of Toronto. As someone who loves to learn, in the fall of 2019, before knowing what a stock even was, she took our program called the Stock Hacker Academy and since then, I’m pretty sure Khatera’s Stock Hacking returns are better than mine. If you’re locked down like we are and interested in learning a life skill that cash flows, I’m hosting free demos over Zoom and will be sharing a preview of the Stock Hacker Academy this January. Go to https://www.stockhackeracademy.ca/demo to register. This isn’t for everyone and success is never guaranteed but I’m so proud of our students like Khatera. Like recent guests Rene Masse, Kris Lewis, James MBM Maggs, Joel Arndt, Leslie and Jamie Collard, Michael Bugg, the godmother to my kids Monica Lee, Cody Yeh, Ron Esteban, Paul Yeung, Victoria Masucci. The list gets longer each week and you don’t have to take my course. Take any course. Same with real estate investment. I care but I care more that you go out there and be successful. Life is tough enough but it’s way easier when you embrace challenges and make money. That’s my experience at least. Again that’s www.stockhackeracademy.ca/demo. If you have any questions, I’ll be there answering them. One last note about Khatera, she loves to learn and grow and invest in her education. I’m the same and if you’ve listened to this show, you know pretty much all the guest on this show invest heavily in their education. I present to you Khatera Osman.
