Eric purchased his first apartment building at just 18 years of age while still at university. After graduation, in his position as an actuary, he was dismayed to see hundreds of company pension plans being rolled over into 401(k)s shifting the retirement risk to employees. This made Eric reconsider traditional beliefs about retirement saving and question his role as an actuary so he joined the lucrative technology industry.

A few years later, Eric lost a fortune during the dot-com crash of 2001 and he started looking for ways to earn passive income and stop trading time for money. He started various businesses, including a gourmet sauce company, but eventually came back to his first love, real estate investing, and formed MartelTurnkey. After just four years of rapid success, he was able to retire from his day job. Today, Eric wants to share what he has learned through his own experience so that we don't make the same mistakes he did.

Financial Freedom should be everyone’s #1 goal because it is inevitable and the best way to achieve that goal is through rental properties that generate passive income.

We chat about:

  • What is the future of retirement and how did we get here?
  • How do you get started in Real Estate Investing?
  • Why are people not achieving financial independence?
  • What are the barriers to achieving financial freedom?
  • What is the best investment vehicle to start with?
  • How do I find my first investment property?
