The purpose of this website is to serve as a venue for sharing thoughts, ideas and tips to help others create more wealth and live better lives. My favorite topics to write about are wealth creation, real estate investing and online business, but I occasionally post other items I’d like to share which relate to fitness, nutrition or life in general.

About Me

Past

Born and raised in the Toronto area, I enjoyed a fun filled childhood as I was raised by my wonderful family. From an early age, I’ve had a keen interest for business, technology and  sports. These same interests are still alive and well today.

In my final year of secondary school, my decision on where to go from there was simple. Following my passion for business, I earned an Honours BBA (Bachelors of Business Administration) degree from Wilfrid Laurier University’s School of Business and Economics. This comprehensive undergraduate program covered all of the functional areas of business and allowed me to gain a solid understanding of accounting, economics, finance, human resources, marketing, operations, and strategy.

Entrepreneurship has always been of interest to me, even before I was familiar with the term. Beginning in a grassroots manner by setting up lemonade stands, organizing garage sales, cutting lawns, and painting to make a few extra dollars as a kid, I’ve been actively involved with several entrepreneurial ventures ever since. As a teenager, I delivered newspapers, began a small web design and development company and later started a business retailing after-market automotive parts. More recently I have been involved in residential mortgage lending, launched various websites, and founded a real estate investment company.

During my college years, I began a journey of personal development. Wanting to make the most of my talents and abilities, and create a great life for myself and my family, I began reading frequently. Following several book recommendations of a very successful mentor, I have learned a great deal on the philosophy of success, but most importantly what is possible for myself and my life.

Present

Currently I live in downtown Toronto and after working for a year in commercial real estate and 4 years as a financial analyst in the banking industry, I’ve decided to focus my time and energy on doing what I love; helping others create wealth through real estate.

My top strengths are that I am analytical, future-focused and a strategic thinker. I have found real estate investment to be a very suitable outlet for these talents, and work to apply my abilities to create the most value I can in the world.

Aside from my work, I completed my first marathon in 2008 and currently stay in shape while having fun by playing squash, tennis and beach volleyball.

Future

Having opened my mind to the endless possibilities that are all around me, I have a very strong outlook for the future and plenty of ambitions to match. My goals and vision for the future keep me focused on what is important to me while living a balanced life. One of my most important goals in both the short-term and long-term is to create wealth for myself and others through smart real estate investments.

My vision, put simply, is to live life powerfully and live a life I love.
