Ever wonder what motivates people like me who have achieved financial success beyond any need to “work” to continue to push ahead and drive business innovation? Passion.
Hey I’m Steve Martel, President and Operator of real estate wealth creation company, Martel Insights. In 2010, we started out as four people with a 90-day challenge. We are now a community of hundreds of investors with over 20 core team members working out of Ottawa, Canada. More about Martel Insights in a minute, but first let’s go back in time.
After battling life-threatening cancer at sixteen, I began my career as a real estate broker working in Ottawa at a Brokerage firm. I also began personal real estate acquisitions early in my career, mainly for myself and a few friends (now high-profile investors). I gained recognition as a Top Broker and Sales Trainer in Canada, though I continued to operate my separate company to offer acquisitions training and asset management for personal wealth creation. Managed to triple our revenues in 2 years. Then, after surviving a heart attack, I decided to focus solely on my real estate wealth creation business.
As President and Operator, I manage the growth of the company, guide the hiring of talent, oversee new acquisitions, develop marketing and run my renowned advanced real estate wealth coaching program. We focus primarily on U.S. real estate right now, and continue to keep a pulse on market opportunities and strategies.
Over the years, we’ve served the needs of hundreds of investors throughout North America and devised a step-by-step real estate wealth creation coaching program. We continue to grow and expand our operations with real estate at the foundation as we take on cool new ventures in vertical fields.
My approach to life is simple: I’m happy to be alive and make the most of it every single day!
I am coachable first, taking everything I can from the giants of success to implement into my own business ventures. I have experienced as much success as failure, (and learned more from the latter believe me!). I fail forward by learning from my mistakes, whether it be bankruptcy, legal and accounting or personal management – and I share every bit of my hard-won wisdom with my community. For every entrepreneur, the path to success accelerates with entrepreneurs who pay it forward for others to learn, apply and achieve.
Our community is filled with the most exceptional minds and remarkable individuals all coming together committed to one shared principle: to achieve success together exponentially and live the dream! My mission is to reach as many people was possible with actionable financial empowerment and continue to grow and thrive together as innovators.
It’s a fun ride…
