- Featured Article: "Mountain Biking & Facing Your Fears When Investing in Real Estate"
Income For Life Updates...
We recently had one of our investing members receive $12,000 in non-refundable option consideration on a rental property right here in Ontario.
They did this by following our system to a "T" and created a win-win scenario for themselves and the tenant moving into their investment property. In less than a month they have a huge return on their investment and they still own the asset.
Not bad huh? It's amazing what's possible when you stop "thinking" and start "doing".
On July 24th, 2008 we have our next Quarterly Income For Life Member's Only Event. This is where we get actual Canadian investors who live right here in the Greater Toronto Area to stand up and share the details of how they do what they do. We call it the HOT SEAT and its become the most anticipated part of our events.
We know this sounds crazy but we actually *do* what we talk about with local investors right here in the Toronto area.
This event is for Income For Life Members Only. Not a member yet?
Click here to apply, we'll call you within 48 business hours to see if you qualify!
"Income For Life Webinar Released....Limited Time Only!"
Over the past few months we've held a few real estate training classes in our offices explaining our approach to investing right here in Ontario.
For too long we drove to seminar, to club meeting, to investment group only to find high level theory and no actual experience. No actual implementation. Just talk.
Well back in 2006 we decided to change all that and unleased our "Income For Life" program right here in the GTA. We actual "do" what we "talk" about. And because we've been so busy with it we haven't really advertised what we're doing. Instead, we did a few training classes and now, with our schedules getting even busier, even that is getting difficult to put on.
Well, with one of our good friends we're revealing a Webinar that explains our investing philosophies. We've never done this before.
The Webinar is this upcoming Tuesday at 8pm and is totally free.
So if you would like to learn about our investing strategies from the comfort of your own home office now you can!
Webinar: "How To Lock In Profit BEFORE You Invest"
Date/Time: This Upcoming Tuesday at 8:00 p.m.
Click here to register for the webinar, we'll have a limited amount of spots we can accept because of technical limitations so sign-up right now.
We were in Blue Mountain over the long weekend and it reminded me of a little adventure we had last year....we've had tons of feedback about this one so I've included it as this week's featured article.
Until next time...be a Renegade!

What does Mountain Biking at Blue Mountain have to do with Real Estate Investing in Canada?
When you begin real estate investing in Canada it can be a real emotional ride.
Trying to figure out if the property you are about to buy will actually make you any profits can put you into a frenzy.
But real estate investing in Canada is much like doing anything else for the first time.
A little while back my family took a trip up to Blue Mountain in Collingwood, Ontario. During the summer they turn the ski hills into an amazing down hill mountain bike course.
I've never tried it before but who am I to avoid something that looks like so much fun.
As I was waiting for my downhill lesson to begin I couldn't help notice that I felt anxious and I was starting to doubt myself.
I didn't really know what to expect over course of the next two hours.
The tough looking guy (ok, boy) next to me looked like he had 10 years experience and he couldn't have been more than 17 years old.
I was sitting on a $5,000 downhill mountain bike on loan from the pro shop and for some reason I almost felt like turning it in and running back to the safety of my hotel room.
Your emotions really play games on you when you try new things. No big surprise here, right?
But it amazes me that it's the exact same pattern we go through with all new experiences and especially with real estate investing in Canada.
So if we can recognize the pattern we can learn to break through it.
It doesn't matter if you are about to ride down the side of a very steep hill or buy your first investment property. The steps are the same.
Here's my interpretation of what someone goes through during many new experiences.
I will use mountain biking and real estate investing in Canada as examples for each step:
- You get excited about something (mountain biking or real estate investing in Canada)
- Talk to people about it and get even more excited.
Mountain Biking: "I'll be on the X Games soon"
Real Estate Investing: "I'm going to be Donald Trump II"
- Decide to get serious about it and track down some education.
Mountain Biking: Visit the pro shop
Real Estate Investing: Attend an education class or read a book on real estate investing in Canada
- Learn the pros and cons. Analyze the worst case scenario.
Mountain Biking: Some scrapes and bruises
Real Estate Investing in Canada: The house catches fire, insurance rebuilds it and I sell the property. I then curse about real estate investing to all my friends.
- Decide to take action!
Mountain Biking: Rent a bike and take a lesson
Real Estate Investing: Find a mentor and a property
- HAVE THE FEAR OF GOD RUN THROUGH MY VEINS!
Mountain Biking: Tell myself that I can't do this
Real Estate Investing: Tell myself that I can't do this
>>> DECISION POINT <<<<
OPTION #1: Bail out at this point because the emotions get difficult to handle.
Mountain Biking: I really shouldn't do this, why bother, I'm too old/hungry/slow/fat/thin/tall/short anyway.
Real Estate Investing: I really shouldn't do this, why bother, it's too scary/risky/unsafe/time consuming anyway.
OPTION #2: Stay committed even after the initial excitement about the idea has faded.
Mountain Biking: "I'm going to beat this thing and love it, I CAN DO THIS!"
Real Estate Investing: "I'm going to beat this thing and love it, I CAN DO THIS!"
- Now that I have given up on this I can start planning to give up again on my next decision. Never really do or try anything that feels uncomfortable.
Mountain Biking: "I'll come back and do try this next year when I get a better night's sleep."
Real Estate Investing: "I'll try this next year when the moon is in perfect alignment with Mars and my credit line has 105 less dollars on it."
OR, if you went with OPTION #2...
Enjoy the rush of adrenaline, build confidence and realize that I CAN DO WHATEVER I WISH WHEN I STAY COMMITTED.
Mountain Biking: Feel the pride of accomplishment. Increase confidence for next decision. Move on to bigger and even better things.
Real Estate Investing: Feel the pride of accomplishment. Increase confidence for next decision. Move on to bigger and even better things.
I started to recognize this pattern happening to me when I was waiting for my mountain biking lesson to begin.
I chose to squash my fear based emotions and push on.
I didn't know what would happen during the next two hours on those hills but as someone, somewhere once said "Those people who need to know everything before they begin really don't accomplish that much".
I agree. Strongly.
Whether it is mountain biking or real estate investing. Go out and get some education, plan for the worst and then make your move!
You'll be glad you did.
Real life is the best teacher.
No book or course can replace actually doing something. And no book will make you rich without a strong COMMITTMENT to taking ACTION!
I ended up flying over my handle bars after hittng a rock. That resulted in a few bangs and bruises but I pushed on and ended up having a blast.
And the best part, my son and niece now think I'm a super hero!
