My friend Sharon Vornholt from Louisville Gal’s Real Estate Blog started up a wonderful podcast earlier this year.  I really enjoy listening to it on my rides to work in the mornings.  Her guests are always hard working investors who are always willing to share what they know. What I love about Sharon’s podcast is that we have similar investing strategies so a lot of her content really resonates with me. So, about a month ago, Sharon asked me to …

How was everyone’s weekend?  Mine was pretty busy with family stuff but I managed to work in a few REI activities as well.  My father had back surgery to fix a herniated disc last week so I got a bit side tracked and did not realize I hadn’t updated my blog the entire week.   Hopefully everyone else was too busy getting deals to noticed.

Growing up in a small town in Alberta, Canada I was surrounded by farmers and small business owners. Many people made a modest living, but for a small town there were actually quite a few millionaires. The attire of the towns richest men was usually a pair of ripped Wrangler jeans, worn out cowboy boots and an oil covered John Deere baseball cap.
