66. Nigerian Immigrant House Hacking to Prepare for Retirement with Odafe Jeroh

Episode links:

Inflation is a silent thief that will destroy your retirement. The moment you think you have enough money and inflation strikes, you'll be back for some sidelines or work to supplement your retirement money.

The best counter to inflation is real estate. And the best way to enter real estate with low risk is through house hacking.

But why are there a lot of people who want to house hack but aren't taking action? It might be because they're not motivated enough.
Motivation can play a huge role in your life. It can decide when will you take action and when will you start enjoying your life.

America is flooded with milk and honey and is the land of opportunities. You can literally buy a property with 0% down, 3.5% down, and many more.

If you are a low-to-moderate income person and think you don't have enough money for a downpayment, try the NACA Loan.

The only one stopping you from reaching your dreams is you not taking action.

59. Professional Hockey Player Turned Real Estate Investor with Marc Cantin

Episode links:

Marc Cantin played hockey all throughout his youth. Growing up in a town with a heavily biased culture of hockey north-east of Toronto, Marc walked the path of a professional hockey player. At the early age of 16, he realized the importance of real estate and began his journey towards financial freedom. He used the experiences he gained and dived into real estate.

 
Renovation, construction, leasing out and managing properties. There's a lot of factors that would play to that and you need a team. Treasure the relationship you build to make a successful business.
Marc is a good skater but believes he's not one of the best players. Still, he pushed forward with tenacity and willingness to work, which resulted in him becoming a pro player. That's a skill that you need in real estate and life in general. If you don't have the tenacity and willingness to work towards your goal, you will never achieve any of your dreams. You can call it 'work ethic'.

Unlike factors like wealth and time, work ethic can be controlled depending on your discipline. If you maintain a productive and healthy work ethic, your hard work will get results and success will follow.

58. Turn Every Dollar Into Employees And Make Them Work For You! with Jonathan Seller

Episode links:

From a single guy that produces music for the church to becoming financially free. Jonathan Seller believes that you should turn every dollar into employees and make them work for you.

 
Everything started from having too much free time. He did what every other people did, he Google'd "How to Make Money Online". He wants more money but doesn't want to further decrease his available time.
The word that stuck to him was 'passive income.' At first, he thought it was impossible. Put some further research on it that resulted in lots of get-rich schemes. Fumbling through all those, he finally stumbled into affiliate marketing which marked the changes in his life.

Jonathan loved the idea of passive income and came up with work optional. A business model that helps other people start their own business without having them personally doing anything. Business owners provide the initial investment and wait for the end of the month to receive their passive income. It's a win-win!

There's no reason not to love passive income. It's the same reason why house hackers love cash-flowing rentals. There are millions of ways to make money online and it's up to you how to discover them.

The future holds more wealth and with more liquid funds available, you have more options on everything that you do.

57. Husband and Wife Value-Added House Hacking Strategy! with Nick and Sam

Episode links:

Value-added house hacking is a great strategy that is often ignored by people. It needs a keen eye and a larger budget which most new investors don't have.

Nick and Sam started dating in their teenage years. They were still living with their parents when Nick started to think about the future and fell in love with the idea of house hacking. He started reading books and listening to podcasts which made him feel more confident about house hacking. However, Sam wasn't too fond of the idea and often had reservations towards it even when Nick managed to convince her to try and house hack.

They lived in their parent's basement and started saving money. However, feeling unsatisfied with their current work-life, they decided to leave their high-paying jobs and truly focus on house hacking.

Nick and Sam had the hobby to talk things out and plan their actions while lying on the couch. This helped them realize that value-added house hacking would be the way for them.

Adding value to a property might need a bigger investment but the returns would also increase. Imagine buying a property with one bed, one bath and converting it to three beds, two baths. If you rent by the room, you could easily earn hundred dollars as extra and more if you Airbnb. It will also increase your chances of getting tenants with the additional facilities.

56. Real Estate Wholesale Business That Started From House Hacking with Dave and Arvi

Episode links:

Our guest couple started from house hacking and created a business from wholesaling real estate properties. They highly emphasize focus and vision to anyone aspiring to become successful.

Both of them weren't comfortable with their first house hack. Even so, they continued working together and hurdled over some common problems.

They're still manually doing everything in the initial phases of their wholesaling business, which takes a lot of time and effort to maintain.

Arvi believed that wholesaling is a numbers game. So they searched for software that could automate direct mailing to potential leads. After the business picked some pace, they hired an acquisition manager to handle the leads to increase efficiency.

In every venture, you're bound to find some difficulties. However, if you keep reminding yourself of your biggest WHY, and focus on what's ahead of you while ignoring all the shiny objects by the side, you're bound to become successful in a matter of time.

If you save half of your earnings on the day you get your hands on them, then use the other half to pay the bills, you could use the remaining money to live until your next paycheck. In this way, you have a guaranteed saving that would become a huge asset when you decide to start investing.

Furthermore, he shared several ideas on how to screen your tenants and how you could take advantage of the available resources around you. When in college, you could try to talk with your roommates to rent with you. You can even invite friends to join to get lower rent.
