Cal Ewing grew up in a cattle ranch in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He pursued his dream of joining a rock band as a successful and professional electric guitar player, but it ended when he read his life-changing book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad. It shifted his focus, and so he decided to get a degree in Geology at the University of Calgary and eventually got a job in an oil and gas company in Texas. The book also sparked his interest and passion in the real estate industry. He got himself educated in real estate investing by reading lots of books and decided to go full time in the last three years.

He’ll also reveal the strategies he made to achieve his formidable success and the services he offers in helping others grow their personal wealth through real estate.

17:19 – Advice for a Canadian who wants to invest in the United States –
“A good cross border accountant and a good real estate attorney in the market that you’re in and that’s all you need to get going.”
“Pick a strategy. Pick a market. Because every market is different. Every market has its challenges that you’re going to learn and overcome no matter where it is and just go. And the more you go and the more you do, that snowball starts slowly rolling, and you build that momentum and coincidences happen and you meet the right people, and then you’re off.” – Cal Ewing
