Who We Are By: Stefan Aarnio Although successful at selling his art locally for profit, Mr. Aarnio's successes in Real Estate have allowed him to produce Art that is no longer commercially for sale. All of Stefan Aarnio's current and ongoing art pieces are to be donated and sold through charities only, all proceeds collected belong 100% to the charity. Stefan Aarnio has made the decision to have all of his artistic work serve a higher purpose. If you are a charity interested in fund raising with Stefan Aarnio's art, please contact us here. For additional samples of Stefan Aarnio's Art work please visit stefanaarnioart.com From student to songwriter/professional musician to real estate developer and entrepreneur, modern-day Renaissance man Stefan Aarnio has already reinvented himself several times over. This constant evolution is necessary "to become the best you can be," he says, adding, "it takes a fire to burn a forest down and let new trees grow. Mindful of this mantra, Aarnio has branched out yet again, with a bold foray into the world of art. In just a few short months and with no formal training, Aarnio has already sparked interest in his wildly coloured, textured, high contrast acrylic artwork. Taking cues from his love of aggressive music, Aarnio relies mainly on pallet knife and spatula to aggressively lay down the hard- edged lines that define his work. He occasionally incorporates other media, such as crushed bottle glass or sand to add further texture and dimension. Always experimenting, Aarnio likes to work quickly. "Speed is important. I need the velocity, even if it means I make a lot of mistakes. I just paint over it. As creator, you can be destroyer, too. This is how buildings became instead a colourful collection of bottles, and how sailboats emerged from a failed canvas after he turned it on its side to gain a different perspective. For Aarnio, intuition and creativity are inseparable. "You know how for a child a box can be a spaceship? I still listen to that voice," he says. "We're all born artists, but we judge ourselves too quickly and harshly, and we end up blocking that innate flow." Harnessing the power and viral potential of social media, Aarnio uses his networking skills on Facebook to successfully promote his work. He's also taken the old-school approach of pounding the pavement, which has led to opportunities to display and sell his artwork in a several popular Winnipeg restaurants, including a selection currently at Edna Fedya at the University of Manitoba. He dedicates a percentage of his sales to Siloam Mission, his favourite charity. Art lovers from all walks of life have been drawn to Aarnio's artwork. For his part, Aarnio enjoys the reaction and is fascinated that in this digital age people find it exciting to own original art. Right now, Stefan Aarnio the artist is currently working on series of panels that will come together in one large work, while developing other collections on various themes.

Who We Are CJOB Interview, Your Life Unlimited With Stephanie Staples and Stefan Aarnio Money People Deal: The Success Triangle with Stefan Aarnio Stefan Aarnio Millionaire Mentors Today with Shaun Furman from Shaun Furman on Vimeo. Interview: Stefan Aarnio, Serial Entrepreneur, Real Estate Investor, Artist So Stefan, you are the first one. This guy is a part of my team and my mastermind group, we do work together and he has got a very interesting story, and he is a serial entrepreneur. So Stefan, can you give us a bit of your background o who you are and how you got to the point where you are today. Let's go right before I met you when you first started getting into real estate investing, and it was a point in your life when you were making about $10,000 a year. Stefan: Yeah, I used to be a guitar teacher and making $10,000 a year and we met shortly after that. Now I'm controlling a couple of million dollars of real estate and I'm out of the rat race. Stefan: I've always been an entrepreneur. Stefan: ... Stefan: Well my first deals... It's funny... when you start out an entrepreneurship you make money from being stupid and taking risks. Stefan: I had to buy out my partners; two of them are still good friends of mine, three of them I don't speak to too much. Stefan: So I finished that little house and then I said to myself I want to do something bigger; I want to do a four plex... and I bought this burned property in downtown Winnipeg that if I were to do again, I would never buy it. Stefan: Absolutely, I said that to all my investors. Stefan: I think one of the key things I did on that deal that most investors don't do, especially at the beginning stages of their career is pay for an interior designer; I paid a couple of thousand dollars to create a good design. Stefan: Yeah, that's the first step you have to create some sort of track record for yourself. Stefan: If you have one you have got nothing. Stefan: Yeah, I have a deal on wholesaling right now. Stefan: Absolutely, I wouldn't even try without it. Stefan: Yeah, I bring my Winnipeg Free Press Articles, I was in the paper, I was in Style Manitoba for my Art; I bring anything about me that makes me credible. Stefan: Yeah, I know a lot of brand new investors; they come out into the investment world and are dressed like bums. Stefan: It's a great question Shaun, Kiyosaki says that, if you gave $10,000 to someone, statistically, most people would end up with nothing. Stefan: That shows where your mentality is at. Stefan: My mentality has changed so many times; I am more of a business owner mentality. You know if I can take 200 people out for lunch and let's assume they are quality people, I would have 200 contacts on a list, and out of that list one of the things you have got to learn in being an entrepreneur is how to make money off of everybody. You have to learn how to make money off of the brokest guy ever who walks in the door. He can be a birddog, wholesaler or part of a referral program. Stefan: Yeah, it's like networking. Stefan: At the time I was working for a private equity firm and I was on stage raising money for Darren Weeks and I had a guy approach me for a JV opportunity. Stefan: I think the best way to find those deals is to attract them; you can't just put out an MLS and say, hey I hope I'm going to find a VTB deal today (vendor take back). Stefan: I saw Kiyosaki in Vegas a couple weeks ago and he said a pretty funny thing: "you have to be retarded to be a" realtor or something like that. Stefan: Well I've got a little website, a little blog http://www.freedomwayjointventures.com please check it out. I'm always looking for more joint-venture partners. Stefan: Life is a game you learn to win by losing. Stefan: Yeah, and you have to admit when you make a mistake, that's the key too. Most people don't like to admit they made a mistake and they don't get the lesson. Shaun: Well thank you Stefan for being on the show and this was a great time and I hope to have you on the show again, and we can talk about a few other projects you're working on. Stefan: I'll bring them on when they're ready!
