Today I’m interviewing Kanwal Sarai. Kanwal is an investor for more than two decades focused on dividend investing. And, today he’s going to be sharing a 12-point system that he uses and teaches his students how to apply so they are able to skillfully invest in the stock market using these proven principles. I also love this conversation because Kanwal is sharing with us his own passive income journey not just with dividend investing but also with charging for membership, for a report that he sends out every month, for courses and, how he sets up his business, what happens behind the scenes. I know you’re going to get a lot from this conversation. And it’ll inspire you to think differently going forward. Enjoy…
Kanwal Sarai helps people just like you to earn more money, save time, and reduce your risk. He has not always been an investor. In fact, he used to work in the software industry. But when he got married and started a family of his own, he started to have some of the same financial worries as you. His income was not going to be enough to protect his family’s financial future, and he had to do something about it. He did not want to work until he was 75. But he did want to be able to invest in his children’s education.
From 9 years to 65 years old, since 2007 his course has taught people in over 30 countries how to create their own stream of growing passive income by investing in quality dividend stocks and, has helped them save thousands of dollars in fees.
Kanwal said the following insightful notes:
“As soon as I was done with school, I went out and got a job. This is what everybody taught me and what I was told – to go on and get a day job. Sit in a cubicle, 9 to 5, Monday to Friday and that’s what I did. Around 2007, while I was still working, I kind of came to this realization that I couldn’t see myself sitting behind a desk for the next 45 years like it wasn’t for me. And, you know aside from winning the lottery I can’t see any way out what am I going to do. I’m a bit of money nerd so I’ve got Excel spreadsheets and everything so I put my salary into the spreadsheet. Put all the numbers in there and I realized even if we both keep working, we’re going to have to do this for the next 45 years. Just the way things are. And I realized I didn’t want it – that was the path that wasn’t for me. So in 2007, I decided, you know, a couple of years before that I’ve learned how to invest – I learned the Warren Buffet approach to investing – how do you invest responsibly, how do you do that without taking on too much risk…”
“But in 99 and 2000 after the tech bubble burst that was a valuable learning experience for me. You know I didn’t invest too much money, I think it was about 3 to 5000 dollars. And I pretty much lost all of it. But what I learned from that is that if you’re going to invest, you have to get the education first. You got to learn how to do it properly. Well, it’s kinda like when somebody gives you keys to the car and you’ve never driven a car before, I’m not sure you will get very far. So it’s the same thing with investing. I decided to – this whole experience with NorthTel and these tech companies didn’t go so well, but let me pick up a book. So, I picked up a book, started reading it. It leads to another book and, leads to another book. And so, they all had a theme in common, what they all suggested was, you know, if you want to be successful in life and we’re talking about wealth, if you want wealth generation, you have to invest for yourself-by yourself…”
“I didn’t have any digital products, none of that, I was teaching in person. Now, I remember I have a day job, we had a first child on the way, married, so not a lot of free time to go out and teach. So it was a bit of a side hustle like a side business which I enjoyed doing and still enjoy to this day. So it was more of it started as a hobby and naturally turned to business over time. And then as we had our daughter 2nd child on the way so on 2010, I packaged the course and put it online which made it a lot easier to deliver the course once it’s online. Anybody in the world can access it. Since then it’s sold in over 37 countries now…”
