Learn why commodities are predicted to be a hot investment in 2021.

One investment firm predicts commodities will rise 30% in 2021. Find out why and why I agree with them.

Are you investing well for financial freedom...or not?

As we live our lives, we have seen enormous money be made in real estate, technology stocks, etc. and have seen wild swings in markets before. They can feel scary at the time, but in hindsight are often tremendous opportunities for future financial success.

If you only knew where to invest for the long-term, what a difference it would make, because the difference between investing $100k and earning 2% or 10% on your money over 30 years, is the difference between it growing to $181,136 or $1,744,940, an increase of over $1.5 million dollars.

Your compounding rate, and how well you invest, matters!

8 Key Lessons from the Ultralearning Experiment
Last year, I conducted an experiment in Ultralearning that I hoped would help me achieve a lifelong dream of mine of writing and releasing an album. I’m happy to say it was far more successful than I ever imagined it would be! As I mentioned in the initial Ultralearning podcast episode, the hope for the 3-month experiment was that it would accelerate my progress towards my goal and make the process more enjoyable. Well, it did all that and more… I ended up finishing a song during that 3-month experiment and I can’t believe it but I just released that single today! Not only did I write a song during the experiment, I continued writing music since then and I now have enough material for an album! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought this experiment would help me make so much progress but it has! In today’s podcast episode, I go through everything I learned and explain why the Ultralearning Experiment helped me push past the self-doubt and self-destructive habits that have plagued me in the past. I also describe the new routines the experiment helped me develop and why those new habits have allowed me accomplish more than I ever have before! Highlights * How to get your brain ready (and why it’s essential for making progress) * The best way to make developing new habits easier * What you should focus on and why * How to be original and creative * Why you should make your project “real” (even if it makes you feel silly) * When it’s worth spending more money instead of less * Why you should expect to encounter the “gap” and how to get over it

Kornel Szrejber: Investor
Your Questions Answered + Real Estate Update For Canadians
Today we’re going to try something a little different in that I’m going to split today’s episode into two sections, covering two different subjects: First, we’re going to cover some questions that I’ve received from listeners of the show and from students of my investing course, so that you can benefit from the strategies and tactics too. These are specifically going to be in the area of investing. Next, we’re going to bring on my guest who is our resident mortgage and real estate expert and best-selling author, Sean Cooper. Sean will explain the real estate situation here in Canada so that you can stay informed on how real estate has been affected in these COVID times, whether you’re an existing home-owner that is concerned about the value of their home dropping due to COVID, or whether you are a renter looking to potentially buy in the future. We cover questions like What should you know? And how can you maximize your chances of getting approved for a mortgage? And whether you’re an existing or future home-owner, there have actually been some mortgage rule changes that recently took place here in Canada so you definitely want to be informed about those so that you can easily renew that mortgage when it’s time. Or, if you’re looking to buy, so that you can have a smooth stress-free process in obtaining financing for your property, instead of struggling and potentially missing out on your dream home due to financing issues, due to these new mortgage rules that recently got put into place.

Are we seeing increases in home values? * How are things if you're looking to buy vs sell? * Is it a buyer's or seller's market? * There have been some Mortgage Rule Changes recently here in Canada. Can you take us through them? * What can we do that is within our control, to maximize the chances of getting approved for a mortgage, and getting the best terms and rate? * With these record low interest rates that we’ve been seeing, many Canadians that are currently in a fixed-rate mortgage are wondering, is it worth breaking their existing mortgage, paying the cancelling fees, and then getting a new mortgage at the lower rate. Can you talk about the analysis that we should be doing to actually mathematically figure this out? * What should we consider if we’re shopping around for a home right now, in Canada?

292- How to Clone Investors
Have you ever cloned another investor? As the name implies, cloning refers to the strategy of following or copying the ideas of famous investors or fund managers. Most investors believe this is an ethical strategy, and Rule #1 investors actually take advantage of the fact that we can clone or follow expert investors.  This idea of cloning goes all the way back to when Warren Buffett first started watching Ben Graham’s investing strategies, and other investing gurus openly stating that they cloned other great investors that came before them. Mohnish Pabrai, for instance, is one of the more successful investors out there. He is a shameless cloner and follower of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. In fact, Pabrai once famously stated that “Thou shall be a shameless cloner.”  Although, the best investors in the world know that cloning is only an efficient strategy when you do your own research on top of that. But what tools will help you successfully clone experts? One of the most popular tools which I discuss today is Dataroma, to track stock picks and portfolios of legendary value investors such as Warren Buffett. The data is consolidated, categorized and presented in an easily accessible format. What you should look out for while analyzing investors in these tools is how many stocks they own. If an investor owns less than 20 companies, for example, they’re almost certainly a Rule #1-style investor. Only clone investors with this characteristic—investors who stick to a few stocks and are passionate about those companies. Because this means they’re putting in 5% of their portfolio on average into one business, which is a scary thought for the vast majority of people who manage money. They don’t want to get committed to anything because they don’t have that level of certainty, and they’re not doing that kind of research.  This week, I discuss these tools and the process of cloning in-depth, and discuss why this could be an effective strategy if done correctly.  Learn more about finding quality stocks to invest in with my Four Ms for Successful Investing Guide.

(Rationally) Investing in Technological Revolutions, Human Capital, and Asset Allocation (EP.125)
On today’s show, we explore rational explanations for pricing bubbles, how the concept of human capital relates to financial decisions, and a whole lot more! We kick things off with a discussion of Ashley Whillans’ book Time Smart, which explores proven strategies for improving your ‘time affluence’. Diving into this week’s portfolio topic, we use a previous discussion about Carlota Perez’s model for technological revolutions as a springboard to introduce Lubos Pastor and Pietro Veronesi’s mathematical arguments that present a rational explanation for pricing bubbles. Perez maintains that prices get bid up too high during technological revolutions due to ‘frenzy’ but we unpack two papers by Pastor and Veronesi where they argue differently, drawing on the concepts of uncertainty and discount rates. From there, we dive into the relationship between human capital, life insurance and asset allocation for our planning topic. We provide some definitions for the term ‘human capital’ and discuss how it differs from other forms of capital. A key idea we explore here is that the more risky your human capital is, the less life insurance you should take out. Along with this, you’ll hear a few quick suggestions for how you should approach life insurance and bonds depending on age, financial wealth, risk aversion, and other factors. Tune in today! Key Points From This Episode: * Talking COVID, next week’s guests and Rational Reminder Community updates. [0:0:18] * Book of the week: Rethinking conventional notions of time well spent in Time Smart. [0:04:07] * News updates: Stories about Bitcoin, marijuana stocks, and more. [0:08:56] * Portfolio Topic: Whether pricing bubbles are caused by rational behaviour. [0:14:19] * Unpacking Pastor and Veronesi’s paper connecting uncertainty to high prices. [0:18:25] * Pricing bubbles as caused by discount rates; a second Pastor and Veronesi paper. [0:27:48] * ‘IPO waves’ connected to the bubble discussion in a third Pastor and Veronesi paper. [0:37:58] * Planning topic: How the concept of human capital relates to financial decisions. [0:44:45] * The importance of considering asset allocation decisions and life insurance needs together. [0:54:46] * Bad advice of the week: ‘The Market’s Invisible Guardrails Are Missing’. [1:01:16]
