Have you ever felt overwhelmed or depressed? Been homeless, unemployed, or on government assistance? That was André's life path before entering the world of finance. But everything changed when at the age of thirty-three, his doctor ordered him to quit working at his high-level bank position, where he was an advisor to CEOs of startups, major tech companies, and high net worth individuals. The stress was literally killing him, leaving André on the brink of cardiac arrest.
André then discovered the knowledge of real estate investing and was able to achieve financial independence in less than seven months in that industry. Today, André is the founder and CEO of Residual Roads Business Institute and InvestFar, the latter being the first mobile app that lets you purchase, renovate, sell, or manage an investment property remotely globally.
Residing in Los Angeles, California, he enjoys traveling, playing basketball, and spending time with family and friends. His mission now is to help others from all walks of life discover mental awareness and financial independence.
In Real Estate Investing Diet, Stewart shares practical tools and techniques for creating financial independence or generating long-term wealth through real estate investing, starting out with low or no upfront capital without using your own personal credit. Along with providing strategies and exercises that remove the underlying root cause that prevents people from being successful in investing or business.
These approaches have been honed from advising tens of thousands of CEOs and executives while working in the banking industry alongside scaling his own investment portfolio and companies from zero. This book was written so everyone – from people in poverty to senior executives – can quit their job or supplement their income in 90 days or less and become financially free. There's no reason everyone can't live the life they deserve or feel like they must be chained to a desk, yet many people believe this, so it becomes their truth. The purpose of this book is to help you break through the chains mentally while providing you step by step principles to reach your financial goals.
To accomplish this, Real Estate Investing Diet focuses on breaking down your money blueprint, mental preparation, and the fundamental foundation around real estate investing. Every person, no matter what craft, must attain knowledge and execute. This book includes calendars, examples, and a strategic plan many have used to become ultra-wealthy investing in real estate.
Ultimately everyone works to make money so one day they can retire and not work for someone. History shows investing specifically in real estate has created the most millionaires, which this diet will make you one too.
We had the pleasure of interviewing André Stewart. Here are the excerpts from the Interview.
Hi André, Great to have you with us today! Please tell us about what it is that you do.
I'm an investor, serial entrepreneur and now published author. I'm the founder and CEO of InvestFar, a global real estate investing platform that allows people to buy, sell, rehab, and manage investment properties globally.
In addition, I founded a real estate investing and business education platform called Residual Roads that teaches people how to start a business from start to revenue generation and how to invest in real estate safely. I have a podcast called Investing Uncensored that talks about Real estate, business, and mindset.
Please tell us more about your journey.
I came from a very poor and challenged background, so I'm a mentor to teens in South Central Los Angeles who want to start a business and help them further their business through ideation and funding or whatever is necessary. In addition, through a program held at LMU, I help a large group of teens plan for a nationwide business competition that takes place in Las Vegas annually.
Please tell us about your book, Real Estate Investing Diet.
I'd like you to highlight the book, Real Estate Investing Diet that is set to be released in March of 2022 and InvestFar. I am trying to do pre-marketing for the book launch, and the app was recently released to the app stores. You can pre-order the book here and check out the mobile app on Apple and Google Playstore.

What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
Staying focused and mitigating any distractions that were not conducive to my success, whether it was people, social media, family, tv, etc., and gaining knowledge. Being a lifelong learner is what helped me become successful, as when you know better, you do better, and the only way that happens is through educating yourself. Not necessarily through paying thousands of dollars to traditional education avenues like college, but you can take open-source courses, go to libraries, and there are also 1000s of people on youtube that have done something that you want to do. I will say getting a mentor is an absolute must; I don't think people understand the importance of that or know that most millionaires have close to 7 mentors and each being for different things they want to be better or excel at.
Any message for our readers.
My message to readers is don't reinvent the wheel. Follow the people that came before you who can provide a road map. If you want to go somewhere, find someone who has taken that route and has been successful getting there many times before.
Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?
