Well, it was the biggest one ever.
We had over 900 people attend last weekend's Your Life. Your Terms. Event.
Greg Foss was on fire.
Craig Race brought some incredible new laneway housing updates.
The Tahini's brothers inspired.
Dan Patton shared the latest rates.
Nick shared some incredible (and shocking!) housing data.
And I explained how our economy is now a family feud.
The size of these events isn't really important to any of us.
You know what is important?
The quality of people in that room.
There were almost a thousand Canadians who took time out of the weekend to come learn about housing, interest rates, our economy and looking to build a better future for themselves.
We couldn't be happier about that.
Listen, we're on our own out here.
The monetary (rates) policy in this country is a mess. So is the fiscal (spending) policy.
It's creating an environment of "haves" and "have nots" at an alarming pace.
There is zero coordination happening between federal population targets and provincial/municipal housing plans.
This week's Rock Star Minutes is all about that. It's a quick one and we share the very latest 2023 housing data and population trends.
You can check that out right here: rockstarinnercircle.com/
We're 100% convinced that by the end of this decade, it will be almost impossible to buy a rental property in the Golden Horseshoe.
And if you do own one by 2030, you will be considered "lucky".
This is it.
If you're thinking about adding some real estate assets to your life...then the time is now. We know this sounds self-serving but we're not coming from that place at all...we just want everyone who can, to own good assets!
The next ten years is going to be a roller coaster.
Between population growth, interest rates and on/off inflation...we're in for some serious volatility.
The good news is that if you're aware of this you can prepare yourself for it all now.
We believe that some good income-producing rental properties allow us to maximize our returns in the current financial system.
Some Bitcoin (or gold, if that's your cup of tea) is the best way to have some scarce, sound money to protect our savings.
And we mean Bitcoin, not crypto. Bitcoin.
As Greg Foss shared, only a small amount can really offer some good protection. Almost like insurance on the rest of your savings and investments.
No matter what is going on in the world we believe it's 100% possible to always live life on your own terms, you just need to know the rules of the game.
You need to know the economic trends, how the money system actually works, and the reasons why eggs cost so much these days.
And that's why we're super pumped to have had almost 1,000 people out this past Saturday.
Because the more of us that understand the principles at work in this economy...the more of us that can protect ourselves from higher prices and inflation.
Canadians don't understand inflation very well.
Frankly, they tend to ignore it.
But inflation is a silent thief that doesn't only make our groceries more expensive...it slowly rips away at the fabric of society.
So the more of us that understand these things, the better!!
When you understand how the money game works, you can "front run" it.
And that's what we like to think we're doing here at Rock Star.
Trying our very best to help ourselves and everyone we work with to "front run" some of what's happening.
To put ourselves in the best position to financially secure ourselves, our families and each other.
Thank you to everyone who came out!!
We're already thinking about and planning for the next one.
Your Life! Your Terms!
Remember, life is short, have some fun today!
And enjoy Family Day weekend everyone!
Tom & Nick
