    Supplementing your Portfolio using Stock Options with Cody Yeh

    Supplementing your Portfolio using Stock Options with Cody Yeh

    Are you in that challenging position many mid-stage real estate investors find themselves in, where you've got a number of properties in the portfolio, but not enough cashflow to fund your lifestyle?

    This is a common challenge for investors who have built portfolios in markets where, due to higher prices, cashflow on a per property basis is lower. 

    So what do you do to create cashflow for today without having to liquidate a property and put a dent in your long-term wealth building plans?

    Enter Cody Yeh, a former full-time project manager and engineer at Honda, who supplemented his job income and real estate portfolio returns by learning to become a stock options investor. The skills he learned over a period of time allowed him to quit his job at the beginning of 2020, while also allowing him to keep his real estate investments for building long-term wealth and earn income for today.

    In this conversation you'll see how real estate and stock options investing can be worked in tandem to create the best of both worlds: cashflow today and wealth tomorrow. 

    Talking points include:


    Why Cody started investing in real estate
    What led to trading stock options after starting out with day trading
    How stock options connect to real estate investing and why investors should care
    What is a stock option?
    Real estate investors can't eat equity, so if there's not enough cash flow from the portfolio, where's the money coming from?
    How trading stock options complements the wealth building aspects of long-term real estate investing
    Why trade stock options as opposed to trade stocks (and what's the difference)
    Being the "insurance" 
    What happens if your option gets exercised
    Expected cashflow returns of trading options 
    Translatable skills between real estate investing and options trading
    How to create scalable risks and returns
    How to get started
    The most common ways people screw options up: fear, greed, and lack of diligence

    The Roots of Rev N You with Real Estate with Co-Founder Julie Broad

    The Roots of Rev N You with Real Estate with Co-Founder Julie Broad

    Julie Broad is the Co-Founder of Rev N You with Real Estate and the Founder of Book Launchers, which helps non-fiction authors write and market books people will want to read. 

    As an Amazon Overall #1 Best Selling Author having written titles including More than Cashflow, which topped Amazon, The New Brand You, and her latest book, Self-Publish & Succeed, Julie is a recognized real estate investor, successful entrepreneur, and notable speaker. 

    Through the late 2000s and early 2010s, Julie and her husband Dave developed Rev N You with Real Estate. What originally was a newsletter highlighting their investing journey eventually grew into a platform for providing level-headed, honest education and insights on the real risks and rewards of real estate investing in Canada, a mission the new faces of Rev N You carry on today. 

    After investing full-time for a little under 10 years and growing Rev N You into a trusted education provider in the real estate investing education space, Julie and Dave decided to move to the USA to pursue two new ventures: Dave's acting career, and Julie's self-publishing company, Book Launchers. 

    Today, Julie maintains her focus on Book Launchers with a popular YouTube channel in BookLaunchers.TV. Her advice has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur.com, Yahoo! Business, CTV, the Toronto Sun, Medium.com and many local and national TV shows.

    In our conversation we dive into the history of Julie's real estate investing career and the background of Rev N You, covering:


    Julie's real estate investing origin story
    How Rev N You came to be 
    The need for level-headed, honest real estate investing education
    Leaving a 6-figure job and going all in on real estate investing and building Rev N You
    "Burning the boats" and maintaining the entrepreneurial mentality 
    The day-to-day of building a real estate investing education company while also building a portfolio
    What it REALLY takes to build and grow a business from the ground up
    What precipitated Julie's transition from real estate into a new business venture
    Using real estate to fund her new company, Book Launchers, and her transition down to the United States
    What real estate investments have allowed Julie to do after moving forward from Rev N You and being a full-time investor
    Julie's advice for investors who are just starting out
    Advice for running a real estate investment business
    What causes the most stress in real estate
    The case for limiting joint venture partnerships



    Big thanks to Julie for taking a walk down the Rev N You memory lane. If you're an aspiring author and want to find out more about how you can publish your own book, reach out to Julie via her website:

She has transacted over 60 creative real estate deals using seller financing to purchase properties, and has used the rent to own strategy to sell over 50 properties over the past 12 years. She also own multi-family properties and currently her portfolio of rentals in Central Alberta is sitting at 70 doors with a valuation of over 11 million dollars.

    Joint venturing to continue to grow by helping others invest in real estate
    What are "creative strategies" in real estate investing?
    Why it pays to know how to use creative investing strategies
    The benefits of creative strategies for investors, sellers, and partners
    The importance of understanding the legalities of creative strategies to protect your interests
    How to determine if creative investing strategies make sense to use (hint: motivated sellers!)
    How long does it take to get your real estate investing business to the level where you can qualify for commercial financing
    Getting educated in creative strategies so you can educate others, namely sellers
    How to build a team of professionals to support your business

    What It's Like to Build a 350+ Unit Portfolio in 4.5 Years with Jamie and Leslie Collard, Founders of Collard Properties

    What It's Like to Build a 350+ Unit Portfolio in 4.5 Years with Jamie and Leslie Collard, Founders of Collard Properties

    Jamie and Leslie Collard are a husband and wife team who have spent the last few years building financial freedom through real estate acquisitions.  

    In 2016, they decided it was time to take control of their future and began creating the life they dreamed of after realizing their financial future was in jeopardy.  

    They decided to delve into the real estate world by soaking up all there is to know about property acquisitions, private lending and investing through registered funds such as RRSP’s, TSFA’s, etc. 

    Starting with their first investing in 2017, in only two short (and very busy) years, they developed a portfolio of over 50 rental units which has grown to its current size of 350 units and counting!

    Throughout their journey, they have become passionate about sharing with others how they use real estate to build wealth. As true believers that everyone can achieve the same success that they have, they decided they wanted to show people how they did it, so they've hosted events, offered coaching programs, and appeared on plenty of shows like this!

    In our conversation with the Collard's we dive into:


    The Collard's real estate investing origin story
    Where they've invested in building a portfolio now with over 350 units 
    Why they got started in real estate investing
    How their goals in real estate changed after getting some focused education in investing
    What it really looks like to build a 350 unit portfolio in 4.5 years . . . the price to be paid not for everyone
    The importance of building your team and vetting quality team members in order to scale with speed
    Becoming aware of what you need to see (and have) in order to push forward through obstacles and discomfort
    What it's like to transition to using other people's money to build your portfolio
    Developing the confidence to bring on investors and lenders in order to grow
    How long does it actually take, and how much work it takes, to find and vet a good deal
    What all is included in the Collard's portfolio and how do they manage it all?
    What investing strategies they use in different markets to maximize returns
    Handling the stresses that come with having a lot of business activities on the go, and what they're doing to improve things
    Investing in coaching and only working with people who are willing to teach them
    The future of real estate for Jamie and Leslie
