Take Action and Specialize to Get the Life You Want



Mat Piche is a real estate investor specializing in the Kitchener-Waterloo region and through his regular eating of a whole food plant-based diet has also become known as  “The Fruitful Investor” with which he has built his brand.
Guest: Mat Piche, Real Estate Investor and Realtor Mat Piche is a real estate investor specializing in the Kitchener-Waterloo region and through his regular eating of a whole food plant-based diet has also become known as  “The Fruitful Investor” with which he has built his brand. Coming from a long line of carpenters, Mat has always had an interest in building and renovations- you could even say it is in his ‘blood.’ Combine this with his passion for real estate investing and his desire to achieve financial freedom for both himself and his clients and together you have one motivated real estate agent! As a child, Mat’s family struggled financially like many others and early on, he knew that there was more to life than just ‘living to get by.’ After graduating from high school, he began his carpentry apprenticeship with a small renovations company, working alongside two senior employees who soon became his mentors. With help from his mentors, Mat soon became a skilled carpenter in residential renovations. Nearing the end of his apprenticeship, Mat began to question his future as a company-employed carpenter. While he loved the work, he found himself caught up in the never-ending ‘rat-race’ they call life-. As a 20-year-old, this is something he had never envisioned for himself and he delved into a journey of self-reflection and analysis. While for some this type of self-reflection comes later in life, for Mat this type-A mentality was nothing new. Mat took control of his life for the first time and bought his first investment property on his 22nd birthday. This purchase marked a major turning point in his life, giving him the confidence he needed to quit his job and start his own renovation company strictly for other investors. Mat’s innovative renovation methods for saving client’s money set him apart from his competitors and earned him the respect of many local investors, allowing him to build strong relationships and connections with them. Going from broke carpenter at 20 years old to now owning 23 properties by the age of 30, his own portfolio did mostly comprise of single family homes but more recently he has been expanding into multiplex units, student housing and flips. Scaling his business accelerated by working with joint venture partners, all of whom he has attracted through his YouTube channel and social media activity. Mat is now focused on helping more people also create freedom in their lives by owning quality investment properties by specializing and educates and helps them through his podcast, videos, coaching and The Fruitful Investing Academy. His real estate investing life has enabled him to have the freedom to follow his passion for travelling and eating fruit around the world.

Episode 34 – Branding and Marketing in Real Estate Investing



Think you don’t need to market yourself in the world of real estate investing? Think again!

In this interview, I talk with my branding coach, Paul Copcutt, about the importance of branding, marketing and standing out from everyone else.

A business card and logo are not where marketing ends and they certainly are not what your brand is. Equally, social media is a tool to communicate your brand but you need to be sure that your message is a clear one for anyone to take notice in today’s noisy world.

Your personal brand is what sets you apart from the competition and tells prospective clients and partners why they should choose you over anyone else. But it is up to you to own the definition of who you are and personal branding enables you to do that.

In this episode you’ll learn:

– Tips on identifying what makes you unique

– Understanding the need to have a niche and specialty

– Why social media is not the be all and end all

– 20 topics you can use to create unique videos

– Tips on using LinkedIn to build your business

– Why doing your own podcast may be a great strategy

Episode 14- The Biggest Mistakes Investors Make



 

 Are you a real estate investor looking to sharpen your skills? Or a newbie looking for your first investment? You’ve come to the right place! Join host Sarah Larbi for a journey into the world of Canadian real estate investment. In this episode, Sarah speaks with Laurel Simmons to discuss “finding your WHY” and the importance of having a WHY.

 

Today’s Guest:

Laurel Simmons bought her first investment rental property in the early 80s when she really didn’t know what she was doing. Fast-forward to today, and along with her husband, Daniel St-Jean, she is a partner in two real estate investment companies – one specializes in rent-to-own properties and the other in buy-and-hold single-family rentals. She also works with the founding members of the Southern Ontario Real Estate Investment Training Club to help make sure club’s events are they best they can possibly be.

Laurel has spent over three decades working in the consulting world both with hi-tech and government organizations. She’s traveled the world as a consultant, speaker and trainer and finally she’s travelling to where she wants to go WHEN she wants to go and for as LONG she wants to go without in any way having to worry about her clients.

As much as real estate investing has brought significant freedom to Laurel and her husband, real estate investing is NOT Laurel’s passion. Her passion is wine and travel – in 2014, she and Daniel moved from Ottawa, Ontario to Niagara-on-the-Lake where she studied full time learning the ins and outs of being a wine-maker and viticulturist at Niagara College. After that she began dragging her husband Daniel to taste different wines in places all around the world (and she’s never heard ONE complaint from him!)

Now as Laurel and Daniel spend more time exploring all the wonders of the world, Laurel has begun looking at a question that has presented itself to her many, many times… and that question is “Why?”… a question that is especially relevant for real estate investors.

 

Episode Highlights:

  • Why is it important for people and investors uncover their WHY?
  • Learn about some of the biggest mistakes Laurel see’s real estate investors make when it comes to defining their strategy?
  • Why is figuring out your why going to change your life?
  • What are some specific tips for people who might have trouble figuring out their why?
