    Jay Gibrani | How to Prepare Finances for Sudden Relationship Troubles/Tragedies

    Jay Gibrani | How to Prepare Finances for Sudden Relationship Troubles/Tragedies

    In this episode, we have with us Jay Gabrani, an Accountant who left a significant position in Price Waterhouse to pursue his desire to become a businessman.
    True enough at the age of 25, he left his corporate career and went on to start his own businesses fulfilling a dream he kept telling his mother back in the day.
    It was in 2005 just right about after his first child was born did he get on real estate.
    He was able to make a seven-figure real estate portfolio out of it. But truth be told, it was not after many trials and challenges that he was able to reach that peak in his real estate career.
    Then came along, what he did not expect, the death of his wife. That’s when after that, he took many years of sabbatical to make sense of everything and to take care of his children. 
    Unprepared for what was to come at that time, as spouses, they did not have anything, like insurance, wills, and things to this effect. All he had was his real estate properties and these saw them through those times to tide them over.
    After years of hiatus, he realized so many lessons and that’s when he put up Prepared Fathers to empower fathers and spouses, for that matter, to take financial responsibility seriously for their own family’s welfare and for what is unforeseeable to come.
    Listen in to Jay as he walks us down his journey of making it big in real estate despite of many setbacks as well as the trial that shook his life and his children’s, made him retreat from the world for quite a while and the lessons those circumstances brought about; not to mention the confident spirit that made him rose from the bottom and began an enterprise that would empower other fathers to secure their family’s future.
     
    What You Will Discover in This Episode:
    It's not about resources it's about being resourceful Why you need to exercise due diligence especially when you become a more sophisticated investor How real estate saved him and his family a whole lot from financial problems during that most difficult time in his life How to prepare yourself for life's curveballs ahead Why did he start his business "Prepared Fathers" What are "money apps" and how do these helps organize your life A thing or two about saving and investing, and being creative in earning money at a young age What are the checklists you need into consideration to be financially prepared?   
    Quotes:

    “It’s not about resources, it’s about being resourceful.”

    “First step, you must get a “Will” because if something happens, the last thing you want your family to deal with is the financial stress on top of whatever emotional stress.”
    “The non-negotiable in my house, you must figure out ways that you're going to earn money because they always want things.”“I have a saying with the children's skills, pay the bills.”

    “What skills do I teach my kids? They are: marketing skills, sales skills and investing skills.”

    “As long as you're teaching your children that they can be in science, in art, in sport, whatever it is, it doesn't matter, whatever their passion is, it's great. They can utilize those skills.”

    In this episode of the F.I.R.E podcast, I talked to Brenda Bastell, a successful Canadian-based real estate investor, the President of Viva Properties. Brenda started buying properties in 1982 and has been involved in the real estate business for over 33 years.

Brenda will share how she started in the real estate business and how having the right attitude helped propel her business to what it is today.
     
    If you’re feeling uninspired, this episode is for you. Brenda and I will get you fired up, and take action because you too can do it!

    Diana House | Lawyer Turns RE Investor/Developer and Shares Value Journey Lessons

    Diana House | Lawyer Turns RE Investor/Developer and Shares Value Journey Lessons

    In this episode of the F.I.R.E podcast we have Diana House. She is a lawyer who turned serial entrepreneur in the private lending, entrepreneur finance and real estate space. She works with entrepreneurs to get them empowered around their business finances.
    Her foray into real estate has been greatly because of her husband being in the industry for the longest time already. She was apprehensive at first but women’s gut feel is working at best for her when she started landing deals she never expected.
    Things are never easy but she’s learning and doing everything she can to thrive in the business..
    If you, too, are new to real estate and still finding ways and means to totally absorb everything, this episode is for you. Diane, being a rookie herself shared her valuable thoughts about learning the ropes of real estate.  
    What you will discover from this episode:
     Women helping other women and how she value those gestures How to add value to asset classes and have it double or more  Leveraging on her husband's real estate genius Her inspiration to continue her path in real estate especially in the development niche despite it being a tough act How her goal-setting looks like Tips on what to do when you are a first-time real estate investor Why the need to hire lawyers in your real estate business Quotes:
    “I always have an issue that I don't know the answer to. And I'm always thinking like, who was the person that I can call? That can give me some insight, but I never just rely on that one person. I then ask a few other people who I think may have differing opinions and see kind of what the truth is. Where Does everyone agree?”
    “Always look for Win Win situations. And so it's knowing that there's not one way to do a deal.”
    “I feel like out of all the different businesses, I could do Real Estate, I think it is definitely the most fun and adventurous. 
    “I am constantly looking for how to create more less risk? Why do I cover myself? How do I get more security in every kind of position. I'm always kind of a little bit uneasy, but I think that's actually good.”
    “I think it will definitely start somewhere. I think, definitely be cautious. Look at what can go wrong. Use a lawyer. But don't just rely on the lawyer, ask your lawyer questions and really kind of push your lawyer. So I mean, I have a team of lawyers  and I'm constantly digging in.”
    “Most people in real estate do not have a ton of cash lying around anymore because they're leveraged, you know, if you have some cash, but you don't know what you're doing in the real estate space is like find those people that look like they know what they're doing, audit them, have them break down and show you what they're actually doing, what the numbers actually are.”
