Building Wealth in Canada | Tomisin from Nigeria

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 how to build 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.   You don’t want to miss: All about growing up in Lagos, Nigeria - The cultural, financial, entertainment capital of Africa. His journey to entrepreneurship in Canada: Starting with building a payroll accounting system in Nigeria and taking the idea to Canada in 2011. Knowing when to “change” your dreams and pivot your goals when better opportunities arise. Where to start when you have an idea for a business and the importance of connection and mentorship. The financial struggles that Tomisin sees newcomers face again and again and why “credit” offered to newcomers may not be the best thing. Untapped opportunities: How to make additional income in Canada, from investments to side hustles. PLUS, the common scams and financial fraud that you should watch out for in Canada… Links & Resources: Follow Tomisin on LinkedIn: Click here Learn more about FiatMatch - The international money transfer marketplace:   Check out the Immigrant Library: Join the New to Canada Academy: Learn more Download my 50 free tips from newcomers to Canada: What they wish they knew before they moved!
