    From Esthetician to 50 Deals Per Year, Top Investor’s Agent, The Duplex Queen Tammy Ditomaso

    From Esthetician to 50 Deals Per Year, Top Investor’s Agent, The Duplex Queen Tammy Ditomaso

    Many of you listeners are interested in careers in real estate, today we have coach Tammy Ditomaso aka the duplex queen on the show.  About five years ago, Tammy switched from her esthetician business to becoming a Realtor.  First she joined our iWIN Real Estate a an assistant, the started taking clients in 2017 and since then she’s rocketed to become an influencer in investment real estate.  Andy Tran, the leading expert on home additions says Tammy knows zoning better than any agent he’s ever met but Tammy is no regular agent.  She regularly gives talks to rooms of one hundred or more attendees plus that time she spoke in front of over 1,500 at the Wealth Hacker Conference.
    Yes I’ve made Tammy cry before, I’ve had team members want to quit and some actually did. In my experience, 9/10 people are capable of more than what they think is possible. I push investor clients and my team all the same.  Not all can rise to the occasion but when they do, you get people like Tammy.

    Buying Then Exiting $11M of Real Estate, Pursuing Passion In Buying A Business with Wade Graham

    Buying Then Exiting $11M of Real Estate, Pursuing Passion In Buying A Business with Wade Graham

    Buying high in demand assets with growing demand makes a lot of sense in hindsight. The business case for Canada to grow the economy via immigration makes a lot of sense financially to attract investment and talent.
    Unfortunately, many investors heard the same advice I did and instead of investing in Toronto, they invested in Edmonton and Calgary Alberta.  Again, hindsight being 20/20, that was not a good decision.  I know many of these people personally.
    Then last week, Wade Graham, a long time Facebook friend of mine commented on one of my posts about real estate how he’s glad to have exited all his Alberta real estate, $11 million dollars worth.  Wade was part of the same network and community I was for just as long and I wanted someone who’s not all rah rah real estate to come on this podcast.  Wade fits exactly that bill :P
    What Wade as a guest does offer is what went wrong in his real estate journey so you may all get it right.  But real estate is not all bad to Wade as the network and skills he built translated into acquiring a failed business, making it successful, in an industry that he loves.  
    In these trying times, there will be many businesses that fail which is terribly sad.  However, there will be some entrepreneurs who can buy these businesses and their equipment for cents on the dollar.  In the restaurant industry, that’s commonly known.  The restauranteur who is the first into a space and invests hundreds of thousands for commercial stoves, ovens, fryers, fridges, freezers, furnishings etc.. they pay retail prices plus delivery and installation.  Sadly, often the debt servicing and rent is too much, the restaurant folds, another businessperson then buys the assets for cheap and has a much better chance at survival and might even prosper. Wade has a similar experience to share which is timely considering the current environment and I wanted you my community to be aware of it.
    If you don’t know Wade, he describes himself as a:
    “Thinker. Feeler. Active. Outdoor. Trying to love a little more and forgive faster. I fail often.”
    Wade tells it like it is so the language is not safe at work or if you have little ones in the car with you.
    We talk about group think in real estate investing, the challenges of having tenants, some wild stories including when Wade had to rescue 200 pounds of gold in a back pack and buying a business.
    Without further ado, I give you Wade Graham.

    “Deadbeat. Loser. Failure .Criminal.
    Imagine growing up in a family where those words were meant to be your future. Without loved ones supporting you, would you, too, believe “You’ll never amount to anything?”

    Successful real estate investor and business owner Roger Auger knows firsthand. No Excuses is his story of hustling stolen mac and cheese and paying his parents’ mortgage at age 13 to running a successful real estate empire. Carve out your own path of growth and learn:
    What life can be like at home for some kids, how to spot a kid without support, and the little things you can do that have a big impact,
    How hard work can make almost any dream a reality,
    The pathway to creating a better future through real estate investing—even if you’re a kid who comes from nothing.
    Why YOU could be the answer to changing someone’s world, just by giving them a chance.
    No Excuses gives us hope that the world can be improved one kid at a time. The world doesn’t give you handouts…but with a dose of Roger Auger’s hustle and paying it forward, you could be on your way to success.”

REI inspiration and encouragement

I have learned so much from this podcast.
The REI guests are always knowledgeable and providing helpful tips and insight.
The host Erwin brings experience and wisdom in the real estate industry as well as the option trading space. He is an inquisitive person which makes for great interviews. He is encouraging and authentic through and through. It’s very clear after hearing a few episodes that he truly desires to help others find their path to financial/real estate/stock hacking success.
It seems some previous ratings don’t appreciate his stock hacking theme in the podcast but I believe they are misjudging him and his intentions and missing out.
This podcast is all positive in my opinion!!

Stock hacking

All this “stock hacking” talk to sell seminars and coaching was about as irresponsible and self motivated as I had ever heard. Options are not a weekend course then go make easy money. How are you helping all those people now Erwin?

Laughing at how easy it is to make money in stocks and options should be called the “Erwin Szeto top”.

Erwin I didn’t lose any money because I didn’t get sucked in to your illusions of grandeur. Many did though and again in your last episode you laugh it off. Even worse is you now seem to be endorsing day trading. You have no shame.

Review update: Erwin is now promoting Stock Hacker 2.0. The first course did not properly prepare you for option trading and if you took it are likely down large BUT now this 2.0 version has all the updates you need to be a successful trader. You can learn this all in just one weekend from Erwin. Also the bottom of the market is in soon and luckily for you all it is going to time perfectly with his weekend $3000 course. If comparing this to a casino the only difference would be the casino does not charge an entry fee.

Could not agree a more with the recent review warning people about option trading seminars provided by Erwin. Greed and deceit to the max by Erwin here.
