    Episode #81 – Justin Smith – The Significance of Self-Belief

    Episode #81 – Justin Smith – The Significance of Self-Belief

    “When I crossed that finish line, I believed something about myself differently than what I believed when I started. What you believe about yourself is a huge predictor of what you’re going to accomplish.” – Justin Smith

They believe that most people's portfolios can benefit greatly from exposure to Commercial Real Estate and aim to make it easier for their clients to get involved.

    Justin and his team have helped their clients invest tens of millions of capital in various value-add and development projects in Canada and the USA, primarily focusing on multi-family and Industrial projects.

    Show Notes

    [02:08] Patrick introduces his next guest in the REIN Member series, Justin Smith.

    [03:31] Patrick and Justin get to work right out of the gate! Justin shares what he does and what his company Hawkeye Wealth’s job is in the world of commercial real estate.

    [04:57] Justin explains the four main food groups of commercial real estate, the two that Hawkeye Wealth primarily focuses on and where.

    [07:03] Exempt Market Dealer (EMD): Justin describes what that means within the context of the BC Securities Commission, investing and risk mitigation / protection for the consumer.

    [10:57] Justin recounts the invincibility he felt from his own first experience of investing from a “hot stock tip” and the fallout that ensued. This early experience instilled his desire to provide risk mitigation and security for others.

    [14:05] Starting his career path at a young age, Justin talks about the long and short-term advantages he sees for his company and clients by having two millennials at the helm.

    [18:56] The path from psychology to real estate investing – a windy road complete with the inevitable potholes!

    [22:50] Justin shares some sparks of inspiration and guidance for kids who may not innately have that drive and motivation like he did.

    [26:50] Justin credits his landlord, and a former TEDM Guest, Dave Steele for his initial introduction to real estate investing and a pivotal decision to say yes to a real estate conference that changed his life.

    [27:27] Empty calorie actions don’t produce results. Justin explains a simple equation for achieving results: choose a desired result, choose the actions to achieve the desired result, take the actions to achieve the desired result and then wait for the result to happen. When it goes wrong there’s only three possible reasons...

    [34:31] Justin also underlines the fact that sometimes you know you’ve done everything right, but the plan doesn’t come together. That’s when you might need to take a breath, be proud of what you’ve done and adjust the course. Mentors can be helpful here.

    [36:50] How Justin views inaction from his business’ point of view.

    [38:12] Giving a shout out to his wife Elaine and to his business partner, Justin describes the counterbalance he feels grateful to have with them both.

    [40:00] Belief in himself. Increased resilience. With three great examples, Justin demonstrates the impact these two changes had on his confidence and life outcomes.

    [45:09] Crush those limiting beliefs!

    [48:27] Through the actions of his early mentor Justin was able to recognize his capability to achieve results and reach higher than he otherwise may have.

    [50:51] The power of having a good mentor and / or being part of a community of people who will guide you when you’re starting out and who will help you when you’...

    Episode #80 – Jennifer Hunt – Pursuing, Developing and Achieving Dreams While Enriching the Lives of Others.

    “What I love about REIN is it’s true, it’s authentic and it’s the whole system... If you play the system, and you play it to win, you can reduce your risk. Not only reduce your risk but even capitalize on it and take care of yourself. Ultimately, I want people to have a rich lifestyle; their financial security handled and then whatever they want. And it can be done, but REIN is the only one that does it all the way through. Full stop.

    – Jennifer Hunt

    Jennifer Hunt is the Vice President of the Real Estate Investment Network and she began investing in real estate in 2009. Her real estat e investing experience ranges from investing in syndicated mortgages, MICs and REITs with LIRAs, RRSPs and TFSAs. She has a real estate portfolio including vacation rentals, residential and multi-family properties (in Canada and the US). She has led and completed significant industrial real estate development projects in the US and commercial leases - some of which were high-profile, unique deals for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. Jennifer is one of the first Real Estate Investment Advisors in Canada.

     She supports REIN by drawing on nearly two decades of a full-range of general management experience, including: business, leadership, management, performance and motivation. In addition to these, Jennifer also supports REIN with her communication skills. Jennifer holds a master’s degree in communications and her experience ranges from crisis management and sponsorship to social, internal and operations communications.

    Jennifer’s real estate investing goal is to achieve financial freedom by design. She is investing for the long-term and to supplement retirement, with cash-flow, appreciation and mortgage principal buy-down along the way. Much like her position at REIN, Jennifer continues to wear the captain’s hat outside of work; in her free time, she loves to sail as a way to feed her love of adventure and travel.




    Show Notes

    [02:08] Patrick introduces his next guest, VP of Research at REIN: Jennifer Hunt

    [04:00] Jennifer and Patrick get underway with a long-awaited conversation, a little tequila and a broader look at what Jennifer does in addition to being part of the REIN executive team.

    [05:33] Jennifer is a self-professed and official “geek” (check it out: she’s done the research and seen the venn diagram).

    [06:56] A robust and varied career thus far, Jennifer enjoyed some cool opportunities in crisis-communications, media and public relations and along the way realized the value of investing in real estate.

    [08:48] Jennifer explains how she got started in real estate investing in 2009 after a working lay-off with Canadian Pacific Railway inspired her to take control of her financial future.

    [11:27] After 10 years with CP Rail Jennifer talks about the betrayal and exposure she felt, and Patrick shares his experience with a similar scenario in his early years. The outcome for both revealed a strong entrepreneurial spirit.

    [15:20] Listening to her husband Randon talk about real estate felt like another language for many years. Jennifer describes how it finally clicked for her and “got it”. Real estate was the vehicle for creating financial autonomy. When the student is ready...

    [17:30] A chain of Olympic events allowed Jennifer to land her dream job and stay on with CP for another four years after which she did some contract work with the Vancouver Port Authority.

    [19:42] After reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad in 2009, education unfolded with vigour and Jennifer dove in to make business and personal development a top priority, learning from others and taking direct action.

    [21:08] Early childhood was not the breeding ground for Jennifer’s entrepreneurial action, though her Dad tried!

    Episode #78 – Nev Lapwood – Stomped It

    Episode #78 – Nev Lapwood – Stomped It

    “People talk about millennials being lazy, and there’s definitely lazy millennials out there but there’s lots of not lazy millennials. It really comes down to the choices they make. A lot of it for me is about execution. Ideas are not the problem, it’s execution. It’s about the time to execute on the ideas we already have.” – Nev Lapwood

    Growing up in New Zealand, Nev had a passion for snowboarding. After finishing university, he chased an endless winter between Canada and NZ snowboarding 200+ days a year.

    In 2007 Nev started his business, Snowboard Addiction with a few PDF manuals and some low-quality videos teaching people how to snowboard through the internet. The content and quality rapidly expanded to reach snowboarders around the world. Through coaching and producing tutorials, he found the need for snowboard training equipment to bridge the gap between training, watching tutorials at home and putting tricks down on snow.

    In 2015 Nev appeared on the hit Canadian TV Dragons Den, a TV show where entrepreneurs pitch their businesses to investors. He was offered deals from 4 of the 5 dragons. After 12 years of growth and progression, Snowboard Addiction is the world leader in snowboard training equipment and snowboard tutorials. Being an online based business, Snowboard Addiction has been able to scale the business with a very small team of staff and reach customers globally. They now also produce ski training equipment under the name Ski Addiction.

    In addition to Snowboard Addiction Nev is an avid investor with interests in real estate, restaurants, other businesses and the stock market.

    Nev lives in Whistler, Canada with his wife Bex and their 2 mini snowboarders Brynn and Jaxx. He is the CEO of Snowboard Addiction and Ski Addiction and snowboards every powder day. He continues to star in most of the tutorials which are watched by millions of snowboarders worldwide.




    Show Notes

    [02:08] Patrick introduces his next guest in the REIN Member Series: Nev Lapwood.

    [04:00] Nev and Patrick get rockin’ and rollin’ right away with New Zealand vs Australia, the funny happenstance of meeting his wife Bex.

    [06:08] Nev’s short but sweet elevator pitch, and literally following his #1 passion to success.

    [08:49] Taking it back to his childhood in New Zealand, Nev explains how his passion on the slopes got started and how the challenges only fueled his motivation.

    [13:05] Though not from an entrepreneurial background, the impetus for Nev starting his own businesses from a young age was his parents’ assertion he needed to create his own finances for the things he wanted to buy or do. A practice he intends to carry on with his own kids.

    [16:15] At 10 years old, Nev found something he was good at, then discovered he could have fun AND make money while doing it which created an entrepreneurial spark that continues to stay brightly lit.

    [18:10] From his vantage point in Whistler, BC and in general, Nev shares his view on whether kids are handed too much by their parents and a slightly different New Zealand perspective.

    [22:24] Nev’s journey to Canada and carving a path as a snowboarder (which meant all decisions were based around more snowboarding).

    [25:37] Realizing the power of attaining the goals he had set in high school, Nev set out to attain bigger goals and start making money using his natural gifts and passions. Snowboard Addiction is born!

    [27:44] Back in 2007, Nev was certainly ahead of the curve creating educational videos on the internet. His interest in self-development provided the groundwork and his business prowess had him asking the right questions to scale a business instructing people how to snowboard and improve their skills.

    [30:50] Nev shares the business’ beginnings,

    Episode #77 – Shenan Charania – An Incredible Apprenticeship for Significant Contribution

    Episode #77 – Shenan Charania – An Incredible Apprenticeship for Significant Contribution

    “That’s another part of the healing journey. For me it looks like – you can’t change your past, what’s the next best thing you can do? You can change somebody else’s future.” – Shenan Charania

    Shenan Charania works as a Transformative Leadership and Performance coach. His work is about pointing his clients to explore their fundamental potential, then helping them live what they discover out in the world in the most creative, effective and sustainable way possible.

    Shenan has reinvented himself throughout his life always searching for a deeper and more meaningful connection to his soul. 

    After moving with his family to Vancouver Canada at the age of 11 and facing a deep culture shock amongst other unseen challenges in this new country, Shenan found himself reacting to his environment with aggression which led to him making poor choices early in life. Before he could fully grasp the results of these choices, he found himself in a destructive, gang-related lifestyle.  

    He led himself back out of what seemed like an impossible journey from a life filled with confusion and pain to achieve his dream of owning his own business. 

    At age 29, he was the owner of a restaurant that was doing incredibly well but he found himself not fulfilled with his surroundings. He felt stuck and confused. It was then that he discovered his true passion and it was in the service of others. 

    Shenan now works with men, women and families who are willing to explore themselves and live from their highest capacity in the most ordinary and inevitable way, helping them design their lives with less restrictions, deeper connections, and meaningful experiences that is completely unique to them. He also volunteers his time to work with youth at risk inside of schools, and in external programs alongside teachers, police officers and community leaders helping to bring awareness, solutions and creating opportunities for a more inclusive, transparent and functional society.




    Show Notes

    [02:08] Patrick introduces his next TEDM Guest: Shenan Charania

    [03:46] Shenan and Patrick get things rolling with Shenan expanding on the podcast introduction to explain what he does and how he describes Transformative Coaching.

    [07:04] Patrick and Shenan dive into a discussion on why and how someone would seek out a transformative coach but as Shenan also points out – “when” is also an important consideration. Getting from good to great.

    [11:21] Shenan’s approach with his coaching has changed some in the last few years. He sets a baseline with his clients to help get them grounded and clear on who they are and how they’re creating their reality. That significantly broadens the creative space from where they can explore and expand the new reality they seek to create.

    [13:37] Shenan shares his perspective on how his style of coaching is of benefit and value to anyone who is looking for extraordinary results. He shares the #1 thing people need most in any scenario whether relationships, health, leadership, finances, self-care or business.

    [17:05] The distinction between the brain and the mind. The brain is the hard drive, the mind powers the brain. Shenan works with people to direct them to hang on less and less to thoughts they “think” are important so that they may create space for a calm and clear mind.

    [20:33] Stress and worry will contract our mind and limit our ability to problem solve effectively. Shenan suggests we look at ourselves as the laboratory. Let thoughts run their natural course and dissipate instead of cluttering our minds.

    [22:19] Parking this part of this conversation with a final note: indecision is really the decision to not make a decision. It is still a decision and it may be more appropriate and powerful to press pause.

    Episode #76 – Janet LePage – We Are Going to Fail to Succeed

    “If we can show the rest of this nation in North America, the world, that you can make money which is what this industry is about, but do it while improving the quality of lives of others, that is my why. Without question I am here to create wealth for my investors...but while improving the lives of the people who live and work in our properties.” – Janet LePage




    Show Notes

    [02:08] Patrick introduces his next guest: a returning appearance from Janet LePage.

    [03:57] Patrick and Janet pick up where they left off from their episode two years ago; Janet’s company Western Wealth Capital with a portfolio of half a billion dollars in real estate, shooting for $1B and 10,000 units in 3 cities, and now closing in on a $2B portfolio and 15,000 units in 5 cities.

    [05:54] Although Janet’s life with a husband, two young kids and a booming business should feel “busy”, Janet explains why she feels the least busy and most effective she has ever been. And why, she has carefully selected this time and medium to share her journey and be of support to listeners. It all ties together.

    [10:09] With her days equally as full as they were a year ago, Janet shares the important distinction of why they now “feel” less busy.

    [14:06] While her learning curve remains as steep as always, the work Janet has done to elevate her resilience and self-management has simultaneously and significantly risen; this prohibits adversity from knocking her out.

    [16:28] High achieving leaders consistently say no to more than they say yes. Prioritizing family and self-supports feeds Janet to keep her healthy and strong.

    [17:58] Janet and her Executive Assistant employ a method they call pencil scheduling and pen scheduling. One of the non-negotiable pen events includes “think time” which can take many forms but consistently provides clarity and progress.

    [21:03] What is the primary way Janet learned to be this laser-focused to run her schedule as intentionally as she does instead of her calendar running her?

    [23:15] Janet shares the routine she has for her personal time at 5AM. Two important, firm components: no phone, no email.

    [27:02] As her business has grown, Janet still fights fires, but she recognized the level of the fire had to change. She actively chose to build a new skill set in visioning and strategy to drive the company forward at their desired pace. Fires cause reaction [distraction] which she no longer had time for.

    [29:28] Figuring out how to keep her family at the forefront with pen time, presence and quality vs. quantity, plus a heated discussion about the word “should” and the “should-ers”.

    [34:48] Patrick shares a story from one of his coaches which illustrates how his relationship with his son was positively impacted by honouring his commitment to be present and together.

    [36:40] Making a choice about what our priorities are going to be, unequivocally means something else will have to shift or be delegated. We can’t do it all.

    [38:03] Janet explains and shares how she and her husband invest in their marriage as they both run their own companies and consciously choose to have full lives. Having a firm foundation in marriage and family sets the tone for the other facets of Janet’s life.

    [40:32] Janet and her husband run completely different businesses, but they share in the commonality of being entrepreneurs and the high-highs and low-lows that come with that journey.

    [42:38] We are going to fail to succeed. With the growth rate she and her company expect to achieve, Janet also expects to double the amount of failures to get there.

    [44:10] Janet’s why for why the company is here now has evolved into something much more meaningful which is also why it will continue to grow.

    [47:42] How making a difference in the lives of ...
