About Joe Rickards:
Since he can remember, Joe Rickards has always had two passions – real estate investing and marketing. Flat broke and straight out of university, Joe bought his first property with no money down. He went on to make a fortune in Canadian real estate over the next two decades. Joe currently runs several successful businesses with partners such as Andrea Lucas, the former Director of The World Bank, and has billionaire Bill Bartmann on his company’s board of advisors.
Although he became a self-made millionaire in his late twenties, Joe didn’t have an easy start. He was raised in a dysfunctional alcoholic family in a poor farm home with no running water. Driven by his battered self-esteem, Joe worked hard and went on to graduate at the top of his engineering class and over the next 13 years he climbed the corporate ladder at leading Fortune 500 companies. He then left his engineering career to pursue his passions full time
After having business struggles of his own, Joe learned that most businesses fail due to a lack of effective marketing. Realizing that marketing is the hidden secret to achieving business success, Joe spent over six figures personally studying cutting-edge marketing strategies with leading business and marketing experts such as Dan Kennedy, Jay Abraham and Chet Holmes, to name a few.
Joe’s eureka moment that inspired him to jump on the social media bandwagon came when he found concrete proof that social media has turned conventional sales and marketing on its head and that most businesses today are missing out on the next big thing in marketing. Together with partners, Joe developed some of the most powerful viral social media marketing strategies available today. As a result, they are creating a flood of new paying customers for their consulting clients across the US, Canada and the UK.
Joe Rickards is the founder of Worldwide Luxury Homes Group Inc., part of the Luxury Homes Group of Companies – the recognized leader in the global luxury real estate investment market. They have an 11 year track record of buying and selling hundreds of millions of dollars in luxury homes around the world. Their marketing division uses an established list of international buyers and proven, cutting-edge marketing strategies to help sellers and realtors sell luxury homes faster than anyone in the industry.
Joe and his wife and best friend Olga enjoy a full life and live in a golf course community in the Okanagan Valley – British Columbia’s vacation playground.
