If you’ve been a listener for any amount of time then you know investing is one of my favourite topics. I’ve talked a lot about investing in stocks and index funds, but I haven't really tackled investing in real estate...until today’s episode! Joining me on the podcast is entrepreneur and real estate investor Griffin Milks. Griffin is 25 years old and has already bought 15 houses and flipped 3 of them. After landing a government job after graduating from the University of Ottawa, where he studied business and commerce, Griffin started his YouTube channel that focuses on personal finance, stock, and real estate investing. As his YouTube channel and real estate portfolio grew, he was able to leave his 9-to-5 and become a full-time entrepreneur.
In this episode, I pick Griffin’s mind about how he’s been able to build up a real estate portfolio at such a young age, and what his long-term strategy is. Griffin also shares his investing philosophy for building wealth and why he advocates for taking your time to do your research instead of getting sucked into the clickbaity world of TikTok and Reddit.

Welcome back to a new season of the podcast! I hope you’ve had a nice winter break and like me are ready to get this year started. To kick off Season 14, I’m joined by author and personal finance reporter Erica Alini, whose new book Money Like You Mean is the perfect new year read.
Erica Alini lives in Toronto and is the incoming personal finance reporter for The Globe & Mail after being a financial journalist at Global News for several years. She was also the face and creator of the Global News' Money123 personal finance series, which aired on Global National every Saturday evening for nearly two years.
In this episode, we cover so many topics that Erica writes about in her new book, Money Like You Mean It, such as the trouble with buy now, pay later apps, renting vs. owning, how to increase your income, and why the pandemic is partially the reason behind the growing popularity in investing.
