David Ash: Lessons On Life & Business From A Self-Made Millionaire

Chatting With Champions Podcast Interview #25. Tyler Basu and David Ash “Lessons On Life & Business From A Self-Made Millionaire”

David Ash | Lessons On Life & Business From A Self-Made Millionaire | Chatting With Champions David Ash, now a self made multi-millionaire, entrepreneur, and real estate investor didn’t begin his journey in an environment that supported his success. Raised in a low-income household on the west end of Montreal, Quebec, David dropped out of high school in the eleventh grade. He subsequently moved to Ottawa, Ontario where he began working to support himself. From washing pots, to door-to-door sales, to selling real estate at the age of 18 and then life insurance shortly after, David was eager to succeed and willing to do whatever it took.

His charisma and ambition served him well, and throughout his twenties he excelled in various sales roles, often earning in excess of six-figures per year in commissions. But despite his work ethic and commitment to succeeding, he found himself filing for bankruptcy at age 29. He then relocated to British Columbia, Canada, re-entered the workforce and was soon able to purchase his first investment property. David has since invested in several businesses and grown his real estate portfolio to include several million dollars worth of residential and commercial properties, and was able to achieve financial independence while in his forties.

David continues to manage and grow his businesses, travel the world, spend time with his family, and give back to his community. A truly successful individual, David serves as an example of what is possible in life – regardless of where you begin or what challenges you might face along the way.
