In this episode, I cover several mistakes and misconceptions that held me back from maximizing the growth of my investment portfolio.
By sharing my mistakes and what held me back, I hope that it will help you avoid these same mistakes.
Fortunately, things still ended up great, although not perfect, and definitely not the most efficient in terms of net worth growth. These are the lessons about the money left on the table, and what I would tell my younger self.

This episode covers how to protect yourself from overpaying in hidden investment fees, and how to ensure that you are getting unbiased advice from your financial professionals.
Did you know that there is a lot of conflict-of-interest that exists with many of the financial advisors here in Canada. We also have one of the highest investment fees in the world.
While there are ways to bypass these fees, you need to know what to look for so that you can spot if your advisor is recommending a poor investment that is primarily designed to maximize their firm’s profits, instead of growing your net worth.
Join me as we cover some of the most dangerous traps that exist for us Canadians in the investing and financial services industry.

My guest today is Miranda Marquit who is at the top of the heap when it comes to being a freelance writer and professional blogger. She is the author of her book called Confessions of a Professional Blogger, and has basically achieved what many freelancers just starting off are hoping to achieve.
I thought it would be great to get her on the show to give some advice to aspiring freelancers and bloggers. Miranda is also very honest, so it’s really great to hear someone tell it like it is, instead of hearing some fairy-tale advice that doesn't coincide with reality.
Miranda also talks about the importance of having a website to build your brand (whether you’re a freelancer or someone who is trying to have their own business).
You can check out my free step-by-step video course on how to build your own website here: Buildwealthcanada.ca/build or if you want to learn what is involved in started a side-business in Canada you can learn it all here: BuildWealthCanada.ca/business.
