Damon Woodward Reveals His Strategy for Scaling Real Estate Business Successfully




Damon Woodward is a high-profile real estate investor and the CEO of Leadway Holdings Ltd. and Blackcard University. Damon’s most recent deal speaks of his success. In October 2020, Damon purchased three apartment buildings with a total of 81 units, closing the greatest real estate deal in the history of Remax in Manitoba.

It took Damon a few years to achieve this great deal and expand his business. Now, he is more than happy to share his strategy for scaling a real estate business successfully.

The first thing that Damon wants to point out is that, “People and systems are what allow you to scale your business.” Damon strongly believes that one has to carefully choose who they surround themselves with, especially when it comes to their employees.

Damon chooses every single person who works with him, as he believes this is crucial for success. Damon makes sure to assess every member of his team carefully to determine their strengths and weaknesses. By doing so, Damon ensures that every team member is in the right position, can complete their tasks without any difficulties, and can build a successful career in Damon’s company.

“At this point, I’m quite aware of what I am good at and what I am not as good at, as well as what I enjoy doing and what I don’t enjoy doing. I have been able to find people I can rely on and trust in so that I don’t have to know everything,” Damon explains.

What is perhaps even more important than investing time and money in one’s team is perhaps investing in oneself. “The major difference between doing one deal and doing 12 deals is the mindset that is required. Mindset is not something that people learn by themselves; it has to be taught to them by hiring people who have already been there. These people can walk us through the process and expand our minds.”

Damon prefers working one-on-one with coaches and he hasn’t shied away from paying for the best. “I have spent over $100,000 on my personal development over the last few years, and every time I put a dollar in, I get to pull several dollars out. Hiring a coach to work with one-on-one is very important if you want to succeed,” Damon explains.

Damon also completed two programs at Blackcard University, the country’s number one real estate training company. Blackcard offers numerous programs to its students, ranging from one-on-one coaching sessions to programs such as ‘MI5’ or ‘Millionaire in 5 Years,’ which guides aspiring entrepreneurs to making a million dollars over five years.

Damon claims that the secret to his success is education and being surrounded by a world-class team he handpicked. He works with numerous coaches and consultants who teach him how to scale his business very quickly. In addition, Damon surrounds himself with the right people who can create adequate business plans and then execute those plans.

Turning Tragedy into Triumph Through Walking With Anthony




On the morning of February 6, 2010, Anthony Purcell took a moment to admire the churning surf before plunging into the waves off Miami Beach. Though he had made the dive numerous times before, that morning was destined to be different when he crashed into a hidden sandbar, sustaining bruises to his C5 and C6 vertebrae and breaking his neck.

“I was completely submerged and unable to rise to the surface,” Purcell recalls. “Fortunately, my cousin Bernie saw what was happening and came to my rescue. He saved my life, but things would never be the same after that dive.”

Like thousands of others who are confronted with a spinal cord injury (SCI), Purcell plunged headlong into long months of hopelessness and despair. Eventually, however, he learned to turn personal tragedy into triumph as he reached out to fellow SCI victims by launching Walking With Anthony.

Living with SCI: the first dark days

Initial rehabilitation for those with SCIs takes an average of three to six months, during which time they must relearn hundreds of fundamental skills and adjust to what feels like an entirely new body. Unfortunately, after 21 days, Purcell’s insurance stopped paying for this essential treatment, even though he had made only minimal improvement in such a short time.

“Insurance companies cover rehab costs for people with back injuries, but not for people with spinal cord injuries,” explains Purcell. “We were practically thrown to the curb. At that time, I was so immobile that I couldn’t even raise my arms to feed myself.”

Instead of giving up, Purcell’s mother chose to battle his SCI with long-term rehab. She enrolled Purcell in Project Walk, a rehabilitation facility located in Carlsbad, California, but one that came with an annual cost of over $100,000.

“My parents paid for rehabilitation treatment for over three years,” says Purcell. “Throughout that time, they taught me the importance of patience, compassion, and unconditional love.”

Yet despite his family’s support, Purcell still struggled. “Those were dark days when I couldn’t bring myself to accept the bleak prognosis ahead of me,” he says. “I faced life in a wheelchair and the never-ending struggle for healthcare access, coverage, and advocacy. I hit my share of low points, and there were times when I seriously contemplated giving up on life altogether.”

Purcell finds a new purpose in helping others with SCIs

After long months of depression and self-doubt, Purcell’s mother determined it was time for her son to find purpose beyond rehabilitation.

“My mom suggested I start Walking With Anthony to show people with spinal cord injuries that they were not alone,” Purcell remarks. “When I began to focus on other people besides myself, I realized that people all around the world with spinal cord injuries were suffering because of restrictions on coverage and healthcare access. The question that plagued me most was, ‘What about the people with spinal cord injuries who cannot afford the cost of rehabilitation?’ I had no idea how they were managing.”

Purcell and his mother knew they wanted to make a difference for other people with SCIs, starting with the creation of grants to help cover essentials like assistive technology and emergency finances. To date, they have helped over 100 SCI patients get back on their feet after suffering a similar life-altering accident.

Purcell demonstrates the power and necessity of rehab for people with SCIs

After targeted rehab, Purcell’s physical and mental health improved drastically. Today, he is able to care for himself, drive his own car, and has even returned to work.

“Thanks to my family’s financial and emotional support, I am making amazing physical improvement,” Purcell comments. “I mustered the strength to rebuild my life and even found the nerve to message Karen, a high school classmate I’d always had a thing for. We reconnected, our friendship evolved into love, and we tied the knot in 2017.”

After all that, Purcell found the drive to push toward one further personal triumph. He married but did not believe a family was in his future. Regardless of his remarkable progress, physicians told him biological children were not an option.

Despite being paralyzed from the chest down, Purcell continued to look for hope. Finally, Dr. Jesse Mills of UCLA Health’s Male Reproductive Medicine department assured Purcell and his wife that the right medical care and in vitro fertilization could make their dream of becoming parents a reality.

“Payton joined our family in the spring of 2023,” Purcell reports. “For so long, I believed my spinal cord injury had taken everything I cared about, but now I am grateful every day. I work to help other people with spinal cord injuries find the same joy and hope. We provide them with access to specialists, funding to pay for innovative treatments, and the desire to move forward with a focus on the future.”
