The Gold Collar Investor

May 31, 2021

In today’s show, Pancham interviews Lane Kawaoka - engineer-turned-investor, leader of the Hui Deal Pipeline Club, and the host of Simple Passive Cashflow.

After turning his own home into a rental property, he accidentally discovered his ticket out of the rat race - real estate investing! So, he left his W2 day job and has now acquired over $500m of real estate properties and has been syndicating over $60m of private equities!

In this episode, Lane proves that financial freedom is possible as he shares how he diversified his investments, discovered his niche in private placement syndications, and the strategy that best works even in recessions! He will also share witty insights and advice that can help you with your investing decisions. 

Listen and enjoy the show!



“To me it’s fun to go around, meet people, learn about different businesses, and diversify.”
