PIT 35: From Master Procrastinator to 4 Properties with Geoff McGuinness

Geoff McGuinness is a reformed master procrastinator. As someone who loved the idea of investing but equally feared the idea of debt, he made some decisions (and paid the price of waiting) that only took him further backwards in his attempt to move forward.

Despite these setbacks (which he explains in the podcast), he’s found the inner strength and resolve – and knowledge – to make some incredible decisions. Now with four properties under his belt and more than $1.5 million in healthy and leveraged debt, Geoff shares his experiences in this insightful conversation. 

My favourite quote from Geoff in this interview is “surround yourself with legends and you can’t go wrong.”
