About Me

Hello, I am Steven Trieu

I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. I'm a loving husband to Amanda and proud father to Jocelyn and Ayden.

I was featured on Toronto Life and the Burn Your Mortgage Podcast for buying a detached house for over $650k in Toronto before turning 25.  By the time I was 30, I had already accumulated over $1 million in net worth, could have been mortgage free, but went on to purchase an investment property for $1 million in the Greater Toronto Area so that I could continue to expand the number of income streams I had to reach financial independence sooner.

My goal is to retire before 40 so that I can travel the world with my family, create unforgettable memories together, and show my kids you can still make enough money doing what you love to do without having to actually work a 9 to 5 day job.  There are ways to make money even when you're sleeping. 

With over a decade of experience investing in stocks, options, futures and real estate, I known there's more than one way to build wealth.  I strive to create more equitable access to financial education and resources.  I started YoungVestors.ca so I can help others reach financial independence together with me.

Let's do this!
