When the spotlight dims and the roar of the crowd fades, the life of an athlete can take unexpected turns. Bob Lachance, a former professional hockey player, sits down with us to recount his extraordinary shift from scoring goals to sealing property deals. With captivating candor, Bob takes us through his decision to trade hockey sticks for house flipping, inspired by the financial wisdom of the book, Rich Dad Poor Dad. His journey underlines the power of personal development, and it’s ability to pivot the course of a life in unexpected, lucrative directions.

This episode peels back the curtain on the stark realities of financial education – or the lack thereof – among athletes, as Bob shares the critical lessons he carried from the competitive sports arena into the business world. As we explore his story, a compelling narrative unfolds, illustrating how the disciplined mindset of an elite athlete can be both an asset and a hurdle in the high-stakes game of real estate. Bob’s insights into how resilience, a forward-thinking outlook, and the ability to recover from setbacks are just as valuable off the field as on it, providing a playbook for listeners aiming to pivot their careers with similar grace and determination.

Rounding off our discussion, Bob, CEO & Founder, unveils the inner workings of his successful virtual assistant business, REVA Global, which focuses on offering trained real estate virtual assistants to real estate professionals. He offers a treasure trove of wisdom on specialization and mastering one’s craft through a three-step mantra: ‘learn it, live it, gift it.’ His story is a testament to the potential of blending the work ethic of sports with strategic business thinking.

Join us for this riveting episode, where the hustle of professional sports meets the strategic nuance of property investment. Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur or an investment aficionado, this is an episode that promises not just stories, but strategies for success.
