Nam Phung arrived in Canada from a refugee camp in 1987, starting high school in Canada speaking very little English and worked part-time to support himself through high school and university.  His formal education includes a degree from York University in Business Administration Studies with a Major in Accounting and his career was spent as a Senior Accountant and Financial Analyst before becoming a full-time investor.

He started investing in real estate 13 years ago and focuses on multi-unit properties ideally with 4 up to 12 units in higher-end sub-markets in Toronto, with a current portfolio of a dozen properties valued at over $15 million.  His two more recent investments have been an 11 unit property and also a cottage which he has on Air BnB and enjoys himself.

Nam has found his key to successful investing in expensive markets is closely managing the construction, ongoing property management and maintenance and be sure to maintain good relationships with suppliers, the trades as well as his tenants.  Nam has helped a number of his fellow accountants get into real estate investing and also holds a real estate license with Keller Williams in Mississauga.

What Should Everyone Know About Money by 35?

 

As someone who has a full-time job and has spent the last 5 years learning as much as possible about money. Here are 10 of the top things I think everyone should know about money by age 35;

1. Money and finances aren’t something you are taught in school and most parents don’t know enough to help you, so you need to take matters into your own hands and get self-educated (Books, podcasts, blogs)
2. The difference between good and bad debt, as not all debt is bad.
3. The rule of 72 (How long it takes your money to double based on the interest rate, PS this also works against you such as with credit cards)
4. Compounding interest and the benefits of knowing that young so you can start using it to your advantage before time runs out.
5. The old saying of “It’s not how much you make but rather how much you keep” should go a step farther and say its “how much money you keep that actually creates more income for yourself”
6. You should pay yourself first at least 10-15% before any other expenses or you will look back 5 years from now after working 40-50 hours a week and not have anything to show for it.
7. Money needs to be invested, leaving all of it in your savings account will actually be eroded over time, you will have less buying power and inflation will make it less valuable.
8. Understanding the power of leverage, through real estate and real estate investing.
9. You will most likely not get rich overnight and you have a higher chance to get hit by lightning twice than win the lottery so save your money and don’t waste it there.
10. Things will cost more and more each year due to inflation, your salary probably won’t keep up so you will need to get some side hustles to live the lifestyle you may want.
And 11 as a bonus :). : Stop comparing your money and wealth to others, you are on your own path and taking small steps at a time will get you there.
