List/Grid Yearly Archives: 2010

Year End Reflections and Happy New Year!

  As I mentioned in my Very Merry Christmas post, my wife and I have lots to be thankful for. For many reasons, 2010 was a good year, one that saw many changes. It’s amazing how fast 12 months goes… This past year was my first full year of blogging and a rewarding one at that. I enjoy blogging although I admit it’s a challenge to try and post an article everyday, even every other day! Kudos to many personal finance and investing bloggers out there, my peers, who are able to a) spend the time and b) develop the excellent content for their ...

My Own Advisor interview with Derek Foster – Part 2

Unlike a Larry King interview, I wanted my chat with Derek Foster to be real, not staged.   Sorry Larry. I had a bunch of questions lined up for Derek a few weeks back but as you may have read from Part 1 of my interview with “Canada’s Youngest Retiree” the interview was much more conversational.  Thanks again Derek for taking time to chat, being so carefree and sharing your perspectives and opinions about what is definitely your livelihood and a growing passion for me and many others; dividend investing. I’d ...

The Very Merry Christmas Edition

Before I acknowledge all the great articles I’ve read over the last week or so, I want wish my readers a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! 2010 was a great year for my wife and I and we have lots to be thankful for. I guess like many folks at this time of year, I find myself being very reflective, which is a good thing in my opinion. Over the last 12 months, I started this blog, met some respected bloggers in the Ottawa area like Canadian Capitalist, Big Cajun Man, Michael James and Larry MacDonald, got married and had an amazing honeymoon, travelled ...

My Own Advisor interview with Derek Foster

  If you’ve been following my blog, you might recall a few months ago I called out to Derek Foster, wondering what “Canada’s Youngest Retiree” has been up to. Back in September, Derek was a busy guy.  I found out he completed an interview with MoneyTalk host Patricia Lovett-Reid, he was preparing for a speaking engagement in Toronto at Canadian MoneySaver’s Investment Conference, he was putting the finishing touches on his new book and as always, he was helping raise his five kids.  I don’t know about you but ...

What a great mortgage broker can do for you

  Phew, we made it.  We moved! After a whirlwind 8 weeks of finding a new home, making an offer, getting the purchase offer accepted, completing home inspections (including well and septic inspections), listing our old home, showing that home, getting an offer for it, accepting that offer and surviving inspections on the old place – my wife and I were pretty much spent.  What almost did us in; we moved in the snow over two days, cleaned the new place, cleaned the old place for the new folks and over the last 3 days we’ve hosted ...
