Wealth Hacker – The Origin Story of Erwin Szeto

Hello and welcome to the Oliver Manalese show with your guest Erwin Szeto. LOL. This episode is something different. My old friend Oliver Manalese, one of the most successful rent to own investors I know asked me to be his first return guest on his show. Oliver is a good guy, his business is to coach people through their problems, many self inflicted. I joked with Oliver when booking our interview, I told him “you’d be losing you S&$% with me if I was your client” I know my coach already is. LOL. Anyway, the tables are turned today, Oliver has known me for years, since 2008’ish so it’s cool to be interviewed by an old friend who will ask those next level deep questions. Without further ado, I give you some guy, he’s a husband and dad trying to figure out the most efficient path to financial peace and to make his kids proud.

How An Electrician Learnt to Hack Stocks and Earn Six Figures From His Smart Phone with Adriano

Hello Wealth Hackers!! Welcome to the Truth About Real Estate Show!! If you’ve ever felt like an underdog or that project or investment you wanted to start looks insurmountable then please just think of this podcast. Everyone and everything starts from the bottom. If you did me the displeasure of listening to the first few episodes of this show, you know how bad it was. I was nervous like heck, I spent hours to prepare and produce the show as part of a six episode experiment. I stuttered more than usual. I like to experiment, a test, so if a project fails, you move on to the next thing, learn lessons and move forward. I knew from the beginning, I wouldn’t be the most well spoken, our music is well, something I put together on GarageBand, our audio quality won’t be the best as my guests are hundreds if not thousands of kilometers away plus driving is just a time vampire. I’m not sure what happened in the last month but we’ve had an overwhelming inflow of positive feedback. Shout...

Investing In Multi Family Residential Without Competition Because No One Else Wants It with Christian Szpilfogel

“Christian Szpilfogel started as a hobby investor in 2005 in the Ottawa area and, with Chaunei Chan, converted the hobby into a full time business in 2017. Originally they would acquire cash-flowing Multi Unit Residential (MUR) buildings and ride the market but this has been refined into a more focused forced appreciation strategy including MUR renovations, expansions and new builds.

Mini Retirements, Mini Hotels, Rental Hacking With Sve Pavic

Speaking of short term rentals, Mr Sve Pavic uses AirBnb as part of his repertoire in his rental hacking. He is the CEO of RentalHacker.com and LUX Rentals. Sve’s a young man who’s already spent an extended period of time in Costa Rica with wife and young daughter while operating his rental portfolio from there. What’s interesting about Sve’s story is how he’s implemented several strategies: rooming house, AirBnb, legal suites, mini hotel and he’s getting great rent by pushing the envelope with just a small number of properties. I think Sve’s story should give a lot of young people and those just starting out a lot of hope. Plus his use of automation in his management is impressive. Get those pens and notepads ready! Without further ado, I give you Sve Pavic

New Investor at Age 24, Working 3 Jobs, Lessons Learnt Buying First Property, Importance of Network and REI Friends with Joseph Costanza

Hello fellow wealth hackers!! How do you convince someone to invest in real estate? This was a question I was asked while on a podcast which caught me off guard as I generally don’t try to convince anyone actively as I in I don’t tell someone to their face they should invest in real estate but maybe I should because that’s my exact advice to my family. My cousin Christopher is about to turn 19 and he’s joining the Canadian Armed Forces. I couldn’t be more proud of him. Christopher is like a little brother to me and I’ve kept a close eye on him because we lost his father, my uncle too soon to stomach cancer just over ten years ago. Christopher is a major gear head, he’s watched every episode of that popular TV show Top Gear five times each. His video game time is spent doing simulators of trains, planes, and automobiles. So naturally, he went to college to become a mechanic and in a few weeks, he will travel to Quebec for army basic training then Kingston for job training for ...
