Darren Weeks is Founder of the Fast Track Group, a St. Albert, Alberta-based financial education and investment company that is teaching and inspiring Canadians to become financially fit.
An Edmonton native, Darren grew up in a middle class family. He put himself through the University of Alberta receiving a Bachelor of Commerce degree in accounting, worked as an employee and decided that he wanted more out of life than the pressures of a nine-to-five existence.
As Darren explains, his traditional job took time away from the thing he liked best-investing! Hed been investing all his life. In fact, he started investing in mutual funds and penny stocks in elementary school, moved to precious metals in high school and became a multi-property real estate investor while at the University.
Darren was inspired to even greater action by Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, whose principles sanctioned what Darren already knew-financial education enabled people to take control of their financial futures and real estate investments were the fast track to financial freedom.
According to Darren, the Rich Dad principles gave him the confidence to invest bigger and go faster. He has built an admirable track record of success through his involvement in hundreds of diverse real estate transactions individually and with joint-venture partners.
Personal success wasnt enough for Darren. Over the last seven years, he has been steadfast in his mission-to provide the people of Canada with the pathway-the fast track-to financial literacy, financial well-being and financial freedom so they can better their lives and realize their dreams.
Since 2001 when he launched Fast Track to Cash Flow, more than 300,000 people have attended the companys educational events in Canada. As Founder of the Fast Track Group, Darren travels throughout Canada giving free seminars and hosting Rich Dad CASHFLOW® games.
Fast Track affiliated companies currently include Fast Track Capital and FAST, all created to provide pathways to financial freedom to Canadians who are ready to take control of their financial futures
