    Moms and Halloween!

    It's creepy and it's kooky -- and it's Mom's favorite low-stress holiday! According to mom after mom, those infamous "big name" holidays—you know which ones we mean—are sometimes more headache than highlight. The pressure! The presents! The out-of-town guests or out-of-town travel, the cooking and cleaning, the expenses! But Halloween—that's a different story. More than two-thirds of Moms are involved in celebrating with their families.  
    What I love best about Halloween is all the little things that I see families doing every year, stuff that's unique to their family, not part of some big commercial idea about what the holiday should be like.  Whether it’s just the basics—costume, trick-or-treating, candy eating— now we've got a whole series of activities and special events that many kids totally look forward to—from roasti ...

    In case you aren’t sure of the title… it's Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around I wonder why it’s named Labor Day. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think a better name may be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day. After all, we know what Labor means. And many will likely be celebrating Labor Day by Laboring.

    Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.

    In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week.

    Canada’s first Labour Day event was in 1872 wherein at the time, unions were ...

    Boy… It’s hot, and not just outside.

    You don't have to be a weather person to predict the weather this time of year. We all know… it's the hottest time of the year. But that’s not all that’s hot. The economy is red hot too. By all measures the best economy in almost 20 years. This is GOOD for most reading this, but there will be some exceptions. There always are. An example could be someone will sell a house and make out great, meaning a buyer pays a bit more than they would have not too long ago.

    And in some areas, the opposite happens. Seller does not make out that great, but the buyer does. Most know this and will hold back on buying or selling. That will of course impact supply and demand, creating RED HOT opportunities for investors. 

    How does this impact you? Well, it is a HOT time to invest in real   estate. If you didn't get the memo, here ...

    The Power of the Other

    People have a starling effect on you.  Parents know this.  Most will fight to keep their child from associating with those they believe exhibit bad behavior. So much so they are willing to pack up their entire house and move across town or to another state, even country. They know their child’s well-being and future is at stake.  Association WILL impact their child’s development. But for whatever reason, many of those same parents, and most people in general, don't recognize the significance others impact their own life.  
    Let’s say I want to be a great leader.  I should go hang out with and learn from great leaders.  How about I need to lose some weight?  Well, I can shed it much easier and faster going to the gym vs working out at home. Even faster, more permanent and cement better dietary habits if I go to the gym, have a personal trainer and associate with others already liv ...

    Happy Birthday, Canada! Celebrate The Birth of your new home… TOO!

    July 1, 1867 is a momentous day in history for all Canadians across the nation – AND so is the day we buy our own home!!! Owning Real Estate, especially your own home, is a sure fire Celebration to remember.

    In today’s market, many home owners really want to make a move, but are finding themselves in a catch 22 – whether to sell first or buy first. They don’t want to end up getting stuck owning two homes or none at all. I am sure you will join me in  saying we can’t blame them.
