HI, I’M JEFF WIENER.
A Real Short Bio:
I’ve started and sold multiple businesses during my career.
By the age of 49, I was able to semi-retire and live the life I had envisioned when I was 20. I sold my 50-employee business, the one that I started in 1991 and ran for over 26-years, to private equity for 8-figures.
I’ve bought and sold apartment buildings in Canada and the US. My first was a 21-unit building that I bought in Toronto in 2008 during the depths of the recession. I bought my second in 2009, another in 2010, and another in 2011, a 12-unit in Miami. I currently own 3 buildings with about 50-units total.
I'm now dedicated to helping entrepreneurs build their business, improve protits, and ultimately, create wealth. I write about how to do it on my blog. I show you the step-by-step approach, and guide you along the way. You can subscribe to my blog here, read all of the blogs here, choose a category from above, or, download a free copy of my book.

The Life of a Semi-Retired Entrepreneur
Now that I’m semi-retired, I spend my time traveling and with my family, writing this blog, managing my real estate portfolio (I have a property manager and controller), overseeing my investment portfolio, looking at angel investments, coaching other entrepreneurs, and managing my private equity holdings. Oh, and I’m also on a couple of boards, one for profit, the other not for profit.
I write about all of these things on this blog.
Writing is a passion. I enjoy writing, and I especially enjoy writing about entrepreneurship and real estate, two other passions, and I also have a podcast (launched June 2020), and you can listen to the first episode here:
I released my first book, The Kickass Entrepreneur’s Guide to Investing, during the summer of 2018. By July, and into August, my book was number 1 in both the business and non-fiction sections on Amazon. Over 50,000 copies were downloaded! You can now get the book for FREE from this link.
I try to publish a weekly blog post on a variety of small business and wealth-creating topics. My goal is to help entrepreneurs expand their business, improve profits, and ultimately, create wealth. You can subscribe here
I’ve got a few blogs that will help you get to know me better.
The first covers my background … The Rest of the Story, Jeff Wiener Background.
And the second is life post business sale and the experience of selling my company. My Journey Post Business Sale as I Sail Into a New Harbour. The Next Stage, Semi-Retirement, and the Life of an Entrepreneur.
Here are some of the top posts I've written over the last couple of years:

At this point I will take you in one of two directions. Direction 1 to read more about my background and how I build my company, and direction 2 where I ask the question: “Are you living the entrepreneurial dream?”
