    How to Find the Right Tenant for Your Rental Property, with Chad Guziewicz

    How to Find the Right Tenant for Your Rental Property, with Chad Guziewicz

    One of the most difficult jobs a landlord has is finding the right tenant for their rental property. And the screening process can be just as hard for the person who’s applying as it is for the landlord. My guest this week has created a tool that makes the entire process easier for both the landlord and the tenant. He joins me to discuss how it all works.
    Chad Guziewicz is Co-Founder of Rentify, an instant screening tool used to verify tenant application data by landlords and property managers across North America. Chad is a 2x start-up entrepreneur and previously had extensive experience in the property management industry which fueled the inspiration for Rentify.

    How Being Laid Off Could Become the Best Thing for your Income, with Pat Flynn

    How Being Laid Off Could Become the Best Thing for your Income, with Pat Flynn

    Can you live without internet? No, this isn’t an episode about cutting the cord, it’s what I had to do for half a week thanks to a damaged cable. Unfortunately, I couldn’t record a new episode without my connection to the outside world, but I did use the time to select an early episode that I think will inspire anyone that may have lost their job over the past year or more thanks to Covid.
    Way back in episode three, Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income was kind enough to join me on the show to discuss his experience in being laid off from his job during the 2008 financial crisis, and how he managed to turn the experience into a positive. Pat dishes on past side hustles, including one that may not have been legal! He also explains what inspired his book, Let Go.
    I really think Pat’s message is worth bringing back to what is now a larger audience here on The MapleMoney Show, even if my skills as a host were still “in progress”, thankfully Pat helped to make this a great chat!

    Real Estate Investing for Cash Flow, with Eric Chang

    In Canada, real estate investing has yielded solid returns for many years, but is the current housing market making investors nervous? After all, the last thing you want to do is buy an investment property in a housing bubble.
    Eric Chang is my guest this week. He’s been investing in real estate for over 10 years, purchasing his first rental property at age 24. He now owns a portfolio of rental properties in Southern Alberta. Eric joins me on the show to discuss, among other things, how real estate investing can lead to financial independence, and how to stress-test a rental property before you buy and figure out your personal risk profile.

Money magic!

Tom and his wide variety of knowledgeable guests are making financial management a fascinating task rather than a finicky chore! The great content and advice they provide, combined with the relatable way in which they deliver it had me hooked from the very first listen. Thanks for putting out such a stellar show Tom - keep up the great work!
