Building Wealth in Canada

If you’re inspired by “money mindset” podcasts, this is the episode for you!

There comes a time in your immigration journey when you’ll start looking to the future and thinking about ways of building your wealth in Canada long-term.

This episode’s guest, Tomisin Salam, is originally from Lagos, Nigeria, and moved to Canada in 2011 to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams.

Together, we chat about the art of taking educated risks and grabbing the endless opportunities that Canada has to offer.

Tomisin talks us through his journey from selling clothes out of the trunk of his car to now being the CEO of his own FinTech company, FiatMatch – (An initiative that helps immigrants navigate the financial challenges of living in a new country) – and how you can start to build additional revenue streams too.
