My Journey: From Code to Capital

Welcome to my corner of the web, where finance meets freedom, and where I share my journey from a remote software engineer to a passionate investor and financial educator.

Who I Am

I'm Alain St. Pierre, a former senior software engineer with 28 years of experience working remotely in the tech industry. My career was fulfilling, rich in challenges, and rewarding in accomplishments. However, despite the success, I felt a void—a lack of real, human connection and a desire to make a tangible difference in people's lives.

Driven by a passion for personal finance and a yearning for more meaningful interactions, I embarked on a new path. I sold most of my real estate portfolio at the peak of the market in 2022 and delved into the world of private lending on land development and mortgages. This transition wasn't just about financial growth; it was about pursuing a life filled with purpose, flexibility, and the ability to spend more time with my family.

My Mission

As I navigated the complexities of the private capital markets, I realized the immense value and potential that lay in educating others about these opportunities. My mission became clear: to help others achieve financial freedom and escape the rat race. With this goal in mind, I took the Exempt Market Proficiency course, further solidifying my expertise in the field.

I'm in the process of becoming a Private Wealth Advisor. My focus is on demystifying the private exempt market and showing investors how to diversify their portfolios effectively, offering alternatives to traditional investment routes.

Why I Do What I Do

My journey from coding at a desk to engaging with real people about their financial futures has been incredibly rewarding. I believe in the power of alternative investments and the importance of financial education. Through my blog, consulting, and speaking engagements, I aim to empower individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to make informed investment decisions.
