Hello Investors of Hamilton Real Estate!!
Thanks, everyone, for the birthday wishes!! We celebrated differently than most would because, like most of us investors, we are different in a GOOD way. First, my wife Cherry surprised me with a group workout and lunch with our Rock Star friends. For the workout, the gang insisted I do Fran: 21-15-9 repetitions of both thrusters (95lbs) and pull ups as fast as you can. It’s the most well known Crossfit workout as it combines endurance and strength to body weight ratio. In the picture, I’m the one hanging from the bar on the far left doing gymnastic style pull ups.
Next we met contractors at a new house we are investing in for my son, Bruce, on the Hamilton Mountain. We’re redoing a basement and a bathroom to force some appreciation while maximizing rent from a lucky tenant who wants a nice home in a nice area. We will be sharing details of our reno and rental process here, so stay tuned!!
Build Your Personal Brand w/ Julie Broad
We at the Mr Hamilton Team are extremely excited to announce our new podcast called The Truth About Real Estate Investing and we are super excited to have Julie Broad as our first guest.
Julie (https://www.facebook.com/juliebroadspeaker) is an Amazon #1 Best Selling Author and International Book Award winner, recipient of the Top 20 under 40 award for Vancouver Island (2014), a successful entrepreneur, recognized real estate investor, and a popular speaker and workshop trainer. She’s been speaking on stages large and small across Canada since 2009, sharing her simple and strategic systems for having more impact & influence in your life and business.
She’s appeared as a guest on numerous news programs including CTV, Global TV, DayTime Ottawa and CFax 1070 and featured in publications such as Yahoo!Canada, Ottawa Citizen, Toronto Sun and The Vancouver Province. She is also a regular contributing writer for Canadian Real Estate Wealth’s Magazine.
She’s an expert on helping people who aren’t naturally born to sell get results, make an impact and ultimately make more money (for their company and for themselves!). Sharing proven techniques for better communication, productivity and persuasion, Julie always leaves people inspired, excited and with clear steps to take action immediately.
In this episode, we learn Julie’s lessons on starting with just $16,000 in 2001 to becoming a real estate millionaire and, more importantly, to living a comfortable, relaxed lifestyle. Real estate investing is not all roses and Julie shares her stories from the trenches, including investing in what became a crack house. Julie talks to the importance of building a brand and shares stories of success. As someone who’s worked hard to build a brand myself, I can personally attest to the importance of having an established brand in order to attract investors.
We also dig into fitness regimes, books, and habits that allow Julie to stay at the top of her game. Just this morning I borrowed Julie’s morning ritual of drinking a glass of water with a “greens” powder followed by a second glass of water and I felt terrific afterwards! If you want to be elite, then adopt the same habits as the elite – it’s that simple… and here is our show!! Might I suggest downloading the podcast to your mobile device and listening while driving or commuting? That’s what I do as I love the quality of content from podcasts vs. anything on the radio, and it’s educational.
