What is your Stupid Human Trick?

We all have a unique ability that seems incredible to others. The trick is figuring out what it is that you are particularly good at and using those strengths to craft the processes and systems that capture wealth.

Cashflow Ninja M.C. Laubscher came to the US from South Africa in 2001 with a backpack and $500. He played competitive rugby and learned the real estate business via experience, buying his first property at the age of 21. M.C. befriended a wealthy multifamily investor who became his ‘accidental mentor,’ asking M.C. to serve in several different capacities from maintenance to leasing to property management to acquisitions. This education served him well, giving M.C. invaluable insight into the world of the wealthy and an understanding of all the moving parts of real estate. Now he is the President and Chief Wealth Strategist of Valhalla Wealth, a wealth management firm that leverages the Infinite Banking Concept to help clients co-author a plan for achieving financial security, independence, freedom and significance.

M.C. is also the host of Cashflow Ninja, a popular business and investing podcast that seeks to empower people to grow and protect their wealth in the new economy.  Today M.C. shares the best investment opportunities out there that combat wealth destroyers, why people struggle financially, and his advice for investors who want to break the mold. Listen and learn how to determine the wealth-building vehicle that’s right for you and the importance of investing in your own health, relationships and education. You are your own greatest asset, and M.C. is here to inspire you to reach your potential through multifamily investing!
