Blackboard to Boardroom: Burn Your Mortgage with Sean Cooper

Graduating debt free would be a challenge for most graduates, but how does one do that, purchase a home and have it paid off in just 3 years? Amazing, right?

Ryerson alumnus, Sean Cooper (Business Management '09), made news around the world when he accomplished this incredible feat. He’s since taken all the knowledge he gained and become the celebrated author of “Burn Your Mortgage”, which launches nation-wide on March 1st.

Join Alumni Relations, in partnership with TD Meloche Monnex Insurance, on May 11th, for our first Blackboard to Boardroom event of 2017.

- 30 minute Q&A to ask questions and have them answered by Sean
- Personal copy of “Burn Your Mortgage”

Sean Cooper bought his first house when he was just 27 and paid off his mortgage at 30 in 3 years. An in-demand personal finance journalist, consultant and speaker, his articles have been featured in publications such as the Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, MoneySense and Tangerine’s Forward Thinking blog. He makes regular appearances on national radio and television shows to discuss personal finance, real estate and mortgages. He's also the author of the new book, Burn Your Mortgage, which helps anyone—from new buyers to experienced homeowners—pay down their mortgage sooner and live well while doing it.

Sean's book is available now at Chapters and on Amazon.
