Beating the Stock Market, Retiring at 34 With Derek Foster

On to this week’s show! We have my friend Derek Foster who successfully retired a long time ago, 2004 was the last time he had a job and Derek is retired, retired. Enjoying his time off, chilling and raising his eight, that’s right eight kids so it’s not like he has nothing to do. As a wealth hacker, I have a natural interest in studying how the rich get rich in lazy ways, Derek has done that for almost two decades and has written six best selling books on the subject, and recently he’s been navigating the crash in the stock market quite masterfully as at the time of the recording, the stock market was down 15% year to date, Derek is only down 5% hence he’s completely outperforming the market and likely outperforming pretty much every professional money manager out there.  Is there any wonder Derek helps us teach at Stock Hacker Academy? On our recent visit to our nation’s capital of Ottawa, we invited Derek and his wife to lunch and record this podcast episode in our AirBnb. It’s great to catch up with Derek and learn about how he’s investing in stocks these days so you the listener and I may learn and hopefully create another passive income stream. To Follow Derek: Web: www.stopworking.ca No, he’s not on social media other than Linkedin but he doesn’t update that lol

Emily’s early journey includes more involved renovations, inherited tenant who was in jail, rent arbitrage, middle term rentals and most importantly, a lot of financial success. Middle term rentals fall between short term and long-term rentals. In some markets where short term rentals are banned.  Emily also happens to have a nice job for one of the big Canadian banks in HR and shares about what skills and positions earn mega bucks, pensions, benefits and work from home.
