Pancham Gupta: Welcome to the Gold Collar Investor Podcast.  This is your host Pancham.  Really appreciate you for tuning in today.  Let’s get into today’s show.  Traveling around the world is one of my goals in life, really connecting with local people and understanding their way of life opens up your mind to different avenues.  Today on the show, I have Maurice who’s traveled to 96 countries and has lived for at least two weeks in each of these countries.  He is a senior executive, real estate investor, restaurant owner, explorer of 96 countries, public servant, and a philanthropist.  His passion is serving clients in the consulting space and helping hard working professionals achieve the five freedoms; financial freedom, we have passive income, freedom of time, geographic freedom, freedom of relationships and purpose.  All through multifamily investing and lifestyle design.

His intention is to move and live in Mediterranean region or at least spend significant amount of time there as his new base.  I am super excited for the show today we have a federal agent and police officer , explorer of 96 countries, senior executive, real estate investor, restaurant owner, Maurice Philogene is with us.  Maurice, welcome to the show.

 

Maurice Philogene: Thank you very much for, I’m gonna take you anywhere I go with that kind of introduction. So, I appreciate it.

 

Pancham Gupta: Thank you for your time here. I know you just came back from your 97th country. Is that right? Lebanon?

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah, I was in the Mediterranean region.  Yup.

 

Pancham Gupta: Yeah, I think you sent this to me before you went to Lebanon. So, I guess you need to update your bio to 97 countries now. Right? Yeah. So, you know, I’m excited about the show today, as I know, this show is going to be great. And we’re going to dissect the elements of personal growth mindset that you need to be successful. So, Omar is telling our listener who’s listening right now, about your background, and more importantly, the person behind that background.

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah. And again, thank you for having me on your show. I love it and any value I can provide to your listenership, that’s what I want to do.  And I love the fact you said more importantly, the person behind the background because I am not my resume, by any means, but I understand we introduce ourselves that way from time to time. So, I’m an immigrant kid. My family’s from Haiti, actually, I was born in New York, raised in Boston, and ended up in the Washington DC area because I went to the University of Virginia, as a mechanical engineer, and graduated as a mechanical engineer. While I was there, I played college football, and I was Air Force ROTC and was doing mechanical engineering. So, I was a busy guy. But it was all for good reason. I ended up being hired by a global consulting firm, where I still am after all these years. So, it’s interesting that many of your listeners, I should say, are IT related, so I work for Accenture, which is a global IT strategy consulting firm. I’ve been there for 23 years. I’m in my 24th year now, as also, you mentioned the whole federal agent thing. Let me clarify, I was in the military for 22 years, and my career inside the military was as a federal agent. So, if you think the TV show NCIS, for example, like every service has its own version of NCIS mine in the Air Force is called the Office of Special Investigations. So, I was a lieutenant colonel when I retired in October of 2019, after 22 years of service..  The police officer stuff is still current. I’m still a local police officer in my community here in Southern Maryland, just on the DC border. That’s part of me wanting to give back to community in a meaningful way. And then the good stuff, or my perspective and the stuff that leads more into the life aspects of what I do, which is the real estate investing. I’ve been investing in real estate since 2002. Single family flipped over to multifamily in 2015 started a company this past year with four other partners and we are nine deals  in 13 months. So massive momentum. Massive. 

 

Pancham Gupta: Wow. 

 

Maurice Philogene: Yep. And yeah, so that kind of makes up who I am from a professional perspective.

 

Pancham Gupta: Got it. So, you know, I’m curious. You said you’ve been at Accenture and also you were in the military and yeah,  so you’ve been doing this like, at the same time, these things? 

 

Maurice Philogene: Yup

 

Pancham Gupta: Okay. All right. Wow. 

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah, I get that question sometimes. And you know, it’s only recently, dating back to about august of 2019, where a friend of mine, Jerome Myers, and I like to bring his name up, because he was the one who convinced me to kind of start expressing the story of what I did and how I did it, because it would be to benefit other people. And it has been, but I just didn’t want, I was more than just one career, right? Like I, I enjoyed the IT space in the strategy space. I love the fact that in consulting firms, while we work for one customer for maybe six months, we move on to a different customer, you’re constantly growing as a person. But who I am as a on a personal level is not just consulting, or IT or anything like that.  I love being in the military. I love traveling around the world on behalf of the US government in an ambassador, kind of way, since I would interact with foreign governments all over the world. But just as much as that as I wanted to be a part of my local community. So being in federal law enforcement on the federal side, led me to wanting to do something locally. So, I ended up becoming a street cop locally. And I just found ways to do it. And we all have 24 hours in a day. And as long as you get eight hours of sleep, which doesn’t always happen for me, but I mean, as long as you get eight hours of sleep, how you use the other 16 hours is your choice, and I just use it very wisely over the years. 

 

Pancham Gupta: Oh, man, that’s pretty awesome. So, let me ask you this. Actually, before I ask that, you know, most successful people I’ve known right, and I’ve interviewed, you know, there are a couple of events that happen in their life where they say, you know, what, I want to become above average.  Is there any such event that has happened in your life that has led to the path where you’re on?

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah, there’s two events that always come to mind for me. One is, when I was 15 years old, my parents had the foresight to have an exchange student from France come and stay at our house. And that just opened the door to the rest of the world for me, because the following summer, when I was 15, I visited his house in Paris, and then the third day in, his dad, but he and I, in his old 1983, stick shift Range Rover and drove us around the country for 30 days. And I was exposed to everything. And for an inner city kid to be exposed to French castles, and funerals, French weddings, the French cuisine, French wine.   I went to the Boy Scouts there, the countryside, the city, like that just opened my eyes to there were different ways of living beyond what I was seeing in inner city, Boston at the time. That was the first thing because my mind expanded as a 15 year old where I said, I got to see the rest of this big blue planet. So that was the first thing. And then the second thing was when I was 22. I just bought a place to live just like anybody would who was coming out of college or something. It just so happened that I was at the beginning of the real estate boom in the 2000s. A few months later, the same floor plan condominium sold for $30,000 more. With the help of my father, I figured out what equity was. And then I went to the library. No Google at the time, I went to the library, I read 10 books in one sitting in one day. And by the end of the year, I had bought 10 more places. The reason that ladder story has significance to me, because as I was researching real estate, I landed on personal finance and financial freedom. And for me financial freedom was it wasn’t about the money, it was having the choice to be able to do what you wanted to do, when you wanted to do it where you wanted to do it. And the way that I could capture financial freedom was by generating more passive income than I had liabilities. So, it put me on this path of I am going to find a way to capture this freedom. So, it was never about being above average, or comparing myself to anyone else. I don’t compare myself to anybody. But it was how I wanted to live extremely well today, and not wait until I was 65. So, I did everything I possibly could to make sure that happened.

 

Pancham Gupta: Well, that’s amazing. When you were 22 years old right, you had this exposure. So that’s how your real estate kind of journey started in  you know, in 2015, you decided to do multifamily. 

 

Maurice Philogene: That’s right

 

Pancham Gupta: Was it? 2015. 

 

Maurice Philogene: Roughly, yup.

 

Pancham Gupta: Yeah, so why multifamily?

 

Maurice Philogene: Awesome, you know what happened, and this will go to the point that life is not about money. When I got to 2000 end of 2014 I had a to do list on my wall in the basement of my house. And it had I think it was seven or eight steps on it for financial freedom and I had knocked off all of them. But I didn’t find myself growing as a person anymore because all I was doing was pressing repeat on the same formula that over the years I bought all these single family homes and then I systematically paid them off over the years, but I found myself with more income than I made at work more passive income than I made it work. But I found I wasn’t growing from an investor perspective, from a personal development perspective, I needed a new challenge. That’s all it was. So, I, sometimes I think Facebook and Instagram, listen to us because there was an ad that popped up on one of those things. And I ended up at a multifamily seminar free session, you know how those things go.  I walked in and seven minutes in, I walked out, I just knew I was gonna do multifamily. And then it took me a while because I got deployed overseas in 2015. The serve and I was gone for you almost two years, maybe a year and three quarters. By the time I got back with the help of a mentor, I did my first deal. Did the second deal, did the third deal, things start to happen. But I felt myself growing again, like I was I was making mistakes again, which means that you’re taking chances and taking risks and doing the right things. So that’s all multifamily was about was just that I had stopped growing from a personal perspective, doing the same single family investing that I had always done to achieve that financial freedom goal.

 

Pancham Gupta: Cool, that’s awesome. That’s awesome. So now that you’re in multi-family, right now, you’ve chosen that, and you’ve started making those mistakes. And they say hindsight is 2020. Do you feel that you should have started with multifamily from day one?

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah.  Brother, I can’t imagine where I was, at what level not compared to other people just for internal for myself at what level I would be at. But to be honest, as much as I say, I would have gone back and done multifamily first, I’m glad that I did what I did. It just taught me a lot of lessons. And the biggest lesson it taught me was patience and consistency. Because what I did was I bought 35, I got up to 35 single family residences, I sold a few of them, because a few of them had a significant amount of equity in them, I paid off the first two or three or so. And then I took my corporate salary, my military salary, my tax refund, money that my grandmother gave me and, and all that, and I just started paying. And then I paid off the third one. And then I added the revenue from that third one to all these other pockets, and I paid off the fourth one. And I just press repeat for so long and kept going to work to make money so I could pay the next one and the next one and the next one. And I just never stopped, that showed me that consistency and patience pays off. So, when I’m doing these larger deals right now, so for example, my team is doing 110 unit deal, right now in the Atlanta market. There are some challenges with that. But patience is going to take care of those challenges without a problem. So, it taught me patience. And while I am willing to take I’m one of those guys who falls forward, I’m not afraid of any challenge that presents in front of me, right. And that might be the military police guy in me because when people run that way, I tend to run this way towards danger. It’s no different in the investing world. You just have to go after it. Find teammates that will help you find mentors who’ve been there before and then you’ll overcome the challenge. So as much as I say I would change it. I don’t think I would because it brought me to this point. And you know, I’m all the better for it.

 

Pancham Gupta: Great, great. Yeah, that’s awesome. Right? Like, you know, again, everyone I talked to them say that they love, they would have loved that if they got introduced to multifamily, right, then in the very beginning. At the same time, you wouldn’t be where you are if it weren’t for the single family, you know, resting that you did, right. So, it’s always in hindsight is 2020. But yeah, at the end of the day you got started. And that’s what matters. 

 

Maurice Philogene: That’s it. That’s all that matters. Yeah

 

Pancham Gupta: Right.

 

Maurice Philogene: And I am just to be clear, like I do the multi-family on once or the I’ll just say the real estate or anything that generates passive income, because I do invest in restaurants and things of that nature. But on the other side, I’m doing the Buffett method on the stock market and just passively investing in index funds. But I’m following both of these paths. And if you know anything about the Buffett method, you just consistently put money over there, you put it in the index, you wait, you wait, you wait and every seven to 10 years, historically, the amount doubles. It’s going way faster right now because of what’s going on the stock market. But I in general, I know where that is going to hit by the time I’m 80 or 90 years old. That’ll be legacy stuff. But I’m so proud of that I did on the real estate side was that money or that passive income coming in, is to live. That’s why you see me going to 96 countries. That’s why you see me building relationships all around the world. That’s why you see me having the , I’ll just call it the fortitude to look corporate, I need a second I need to go out and patrol for my local community because I don’t necessarily need the corporate salary to live anymore. I can live off real estate money. So, it’s just been a good blend and understanding that patience is just a good thing to have.

 

Pancham Gupta: Cool, cool.  So, let me ask you this, what goal do you have now that you’re most inspired with and most uncomfortable with, that you’re working towards now?

 

Maurice Philogene: So, this goes back to the travel. And when I, when I travel Pancham, it is not as a tourist, it’s never as a tourist, it is someone who is going to a particular place to meaningfully connect with people in some kind of way. So that definition of 96 countries just means that I have spent at least two weeks in that country meaningfully connecting either through work through volunteerism, or for some other reason, I have developed a fond affection for the Mediterranean region of the world, right. And I know that I’m going to spend a portion of my life there. So just like the multifamily where I found a mentor, because I wanted to accelerate what I was doing. From an international real estate perspective, I sought out a partner who ended up being the husband of someone I graduated from college with, he happens to be a real estate developer in the Mediterranean. 

 

Pancham Gupta: Wow. 

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah. So, I went to go see him, he lives in Cyprus, I went to go see him spend time with him talking about goals and all these things. And then we became very good friends because we’re very likeminded. See, my goals have shifted from financial related goals to life related goals. And if, if money is a result of those life related goals, I’m happy with that as well. So, you know, I’m very, very, very close to having a contract on several acres, there. And we’ll develop it together. And then we’re going to keep pressing repeat on this formula. But I’m also going to capture a bit of area to build my own Villa there or my own home to give my family legacy because that’s just not something that would ever normally occur in my Haitian family. So, it’s a little bit scary from I don’t know anything about international real estate from that perspective ,but the way you quickly Eclipse that is you get a mentor, or you get a partner who does. So now I’m learning very, very, very quickly. So that’s the that’s the project I’m working on right now. And eventually, I’ll help investors do the same.

 

Pancham Gupta: Wow, that’s pretty awesome. That goal is definitely something that’s going to make many people uncomfortable, especially International, you’re not, you’ve never lived there. The local laws, and all so it’s quite amazing. Good luck with that. So, my I’m actually asking these two questions before we go to the next section of the show. My first question is, what are you getting better at saying no to these days,

 

Maurice Philogene: Everything.  Everything, our common friend, Trevor taught me something that I value so much, and I hope he hears this interview. He taught me and I’m talking about Trevor McGregor, who’s my business coach, he taught me about the productivity pyramid, and maybe you’ve heard about it, okay, the gold time is a good stuff that we all want to do. The green time is the stuff that we must do to build our businesses and build ourselves. Anything that sits in the brown time, I don’t do it. I say no to it immediately. And I look through that lens. And by brown time, I mean, I don’t binge watch Netflix, I don’t go to the bar with the fellas too much anymore. I don’t, I don’t do anything that takes away from the time I need to go build who I am as a person, go build my businesses, or even go spend time with likeminded people like yourself, that’s why I’m doing this interview, right? Because I now met my man, Pancham and you are a likeminded person. And to me, that’s green and gold time. That is not time that I am wasting. And you know, what I didn’t realize before was when we do things that don’t have value, not only does it take our time away, but it also tends to take our money away, as well. And ever since I learned that productivity pyramid from Trevor, it just makes it so easy for me to say no. So even on the corporate side, Pancham, if there’s a networking event, or a seminar that doesn’t add any value, or I am asked to go somewhere that I don’t see resulting in something of benefit, I don’t go it is unnecessary. It wastes my time.

 

Pancham Gupta: That’s great. So awesome. And Trevor was here on the podcast a long time back. 

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah.  He’s my guy.

 

Pancham Gupta: You know, he talked that, it was amazing. So yeah, thank you for sharing that. My final question before we move on to the next section of the show is do you have a morning or daily routine that you follow? Yeah, if so what is it? And do you think that attributes to your success?

 

Maurice Philogene: 100% it attributes to my success, relative success, whatever people define success as but I’m an early riser.  Today, I was up at 3:30.  I was in the gym by four o’clock.  I finished my work out by 5:10. I was on my computer probably by 5:30 on social media responding to people and then I was having breakfast with my kid at eight o’clock. I think I got that value from the military to be honest, because in college, obviously, with ROTC, I had to be up at five in the morning. And then I would have classes starting at 9am, when most students were getting up at 8:30am. But what that does is, and maybe I’m a little bit extreme, but I, I tend to go to bed at, once my seven year old is asleep, there’s no reason for me to be awake, because I’d rather be up in the morning. If you’re up at four o’clock in the morning, and then you work and you do whatever it is you need to do, but till eight, you have four hours there. And then some people, I’ll extend it and say that some people will work from 730 to 930. There’s another two hours, but let’s just talk about the four hours in the morning. There’s no distractions, the phone’s not going, no one is texting you. It’s beautiful, you can actually hear birds and you can actually see stars, they still actually exist. They’re out there that four hours a day, five days a week is 20 hours a week, 80 hours a month, 960 hours extra a year, you can get a ton done in that timeframe. So, the way that I started Quattro Capital this year while working at Accenture, and while doing all the other things that I do is because I was willing to be up at 4am to go get my workout in and to work on the side hustle, if you will, until the side hustle started to become the main hustle. So that is the thing that I value the most is I have learned how to create time. And I am very good at that between saying no to brown time, and then creating time by being up very early in the morning. And sometimes spending some time at night, I am creating more space to be able to create the lifestyle that I want, which is where I spend the most of my mental capacity now is on lifestyle design and living how you want to and where you want to.

 

Pancham Gupta: Love that.  So powerful, so powerful. So, what time you go to bed, usually?

 

Maurice Philogene: Usually by 9, it there are times when I you know I get to bed late like everybody else. But um, I like being up in the morning, I get a lot done by 8 o’clock. So that that’s the value to me.

 

Pancham Gupta: Great. Thank you. Thank you, Maurice, we’ll be back after this message. If you want to know the top six reasons on why you should consider diversifying outside of the Wall Street, then you are in the right place. I have written a free report for you. It goes into not just the top six reasons why investing in stocks for one case may not be the sound strategy. But also, what are the alternatives? Get your free report today on thegoldcollar investor.com/download. I repeat, thegoldcollarinvestor.com/download summaries. Let’s move on to the next section of the show. Yeah, you know, we call this taking the leap round, I asked these four questions to every guest on my show. And my first question for you is When was the first time you invested outside of Wall Street? Was it when you were 22 years old? or?

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah, I think I was 23. I think I was 23. I won’t call my first place to live and investment because I was just living there. But when I figured out that I had made some money and I went to the library, that next investment, that next thing that I bought was an investment property, which was a condo which I think was like $120,000 with the help of a broker. And she convinced me instead of buying one big Dodo egg, to buy 12 little eggs and a dozen and she helped me buy 12 condos in a year timeframe. So that was my first foray. And I did that between 23 and 24-25.

 

Pancham Gupta: Wow. So, did you have any fears that you had to overcome when you were when you bought that first condo? 

 

Maurice Philogene: No, 

 

Pancham Gupta: Fearless.

 

Maurice Philogene: No because I was an immigrant kid who went to school and didn’t have any money. And I had just made $30,000 because the market shifted. But what that told me was go get money from banks as much as they will give you a buy as much as you can. And don’t get me wrong. I ran into problems. I think just like anyone who was operating back at that time, but for every problem, I had five successes, so it was well worth it.

 

Pancham Gupta: Great. My third question for you, Maurice is can you share with us one investment that did not go as expected?

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah. So, you know, just like the stock market right now. Is that all-time highs? And I think yesterday I’m not a cryptocurrency guy, but I do watch it. And yesterday or the day before cryptocurrency was at 41,000. And it dropped by 28% in one day,

 

Pancham Gupta: Bitcoin. Yeah.

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah, Bitcoin, excuse me, not the whole class, but Bitcoin did. Yeah. It was the same thing in real estate back in the 2000. So, I bought, I got really good at negotiating and connecting with the developers in DC for high end condominiums. So, I would walk into their offices before the places were even built. And I would convince them to sell me the highest end place in the building. And I remember buying the penthouse of a development in the middle of the city, but I bought it at the end of 2006. And you know what? was starting to occur. And I didn’t know in my late 20s. I think at that point, there is a bubble coming now. So, I hit a bubble is effectively what happened. And I paid the price for it, but I recovered from it without a problem. So, when I see these cycles now I understand that there’s a buyers phase one, the buyers, phase two, that was phase one sellers, phase two in the real estate market. And then within the stock market, every 10-12 years or so, there’s usually some kind of event that tends to occur, but you learn as you go, and now that I know it, when the bubble occurs, I’m the guy who’s coming in and starting to buy as much as I can or looking for opportunity. But that was the mistake that I made, I bought a penthouse condo in the middle of DC at the beginning of the bust, and I paid the price for it.

 

Pancham Gupta: Wow, did that Condo ever get completed or

 

Maurice Philogene: it got completed, I did own it for a long time. And I ended up having a short sale, it made an agreement with the bank, pay them back the extra money that I owed them a bit later. And then you know, everything worked itself out. But it was certainly stressful because the amount of that condo was you know, like eight times my salary, you know what I mean? So, it was something that I went after. And I don’t mind that I did it. But it was certainly a lesson learned.

 

Pancham Gupta: Yeah, you do these things, and you learn, and these are hard lessons.

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah, for sure. 

 

Pancham Gupta: Right. So, my last question for you, Maurice is what is one piece of advice would you give to people who are thinking of investing in main street that is outside of Wall Street? 

 

Maurice Philogene: Ah, I would just make sure that people know their why.  I mean, people really need to understand their why.  If their Why is just to make money, you can do it. But I think you’ll end up making mistakes one way or the other, because money is not. Money is just a means to an end. If people know their why, for example, when I have investors, come talk to us at Quattro Capital. Now the first question I asked them, are they trying to generate cash flow? Are they trying to create legacy for the next generation of their family? Like what is the goal, and for some people, all they’re trying to do is get out of corporate America or create enough passive income, so they don’t have to go to work. So, I’ll spend time with them, we’ll figure out like what the number is that they think they need on a monthly basis, back into how many main street deals they need to get done. If it’s to multifamily and one single family, then we can kind of architect what needs to get done such that they create the $5,6,7,000 of passive income they need on a monthly basis. And then it makes it so much easier to go to that job that you don’t you don’t necessarily enjoy going to because you’re creating the revenue you need to buy your freedom. So that would be the advice, know your why and don’t just invest for investments, like there should be a purpose behind it. And that’ll make things a lot easier for you to execute. 

 

Pancham Gupta: Great, great, advice. Maurice, thank you for your time here. How can I connect with you? If they want to connect and find out more about you or your company?

 

Maurice Philogene: Yeah, so I’m definitely on LinkedIn at Maurice Philogene.  I am on Instagram at Maurice Philogene as well.  I love talking to people on both of those platforms. Obviously, LinkedIn is a bit more professional.  Instagram, I tend to talk way more about lifestyle, design aspirations, because I believe that we can all design a life that we’re proud of and live it today. My business is Quattro Capital. You can find me at the Quattroway. q u a tt ro way dot com , that’s the multifamily syndication business. We do a lot of syndications. We do a lot of joint ventures we help people get into their first multifamily deals. So, you can find me and schedule a call there. And I just want to add one more thing. I adore talking to people who are in the corporate space or the investment space or what have you, because I think a lot of people are trying to figure out how they move on into their next chapter away from their given profession that they have found themselves in real estate, along with lifestyle design related tactics can get you there. And I love opening people’s eyes to that fact. So, if folks track me down, I will definitely spend time with him. I’ve never not returned one message. So, I will always talk to everybody.
