My Mom used to tell me repeatedly to do this and do that, not to do this and not to do that. My Mom used to say things like, “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything” or how about this one, “Don’t ask a question you don’t want to know the answer to” ALL, I recall, very valuable advice. Looking back on it, I can say she was a very wise woman.
Time reveals, in fact, just about every caring Mother is a Wise Woman. I can see why we dedicate a special day each year to acknowledge Mothers. So here is a shout out to all Mom’s – Happy Mothers Day!!
Unfortunately, My Mom is no longer here. I am sure some reading this can relate and have similar stories. For ALL those whose Mom is no longer with us, may you remember the best about them. In addition to that, there are also many who never knew their Mom due to unfortunate circumstance. I bet someone played that roll in their life and they ...

From STUCK to UNSTUCK!
I am a big history buff. Most adults of reasonable success are too, they learn from it and try to avoid repeating mistakes they have made and that others have made.
One of my favorite stories from history is Nehemiah and his life. This guy was DRIVEN to solve problems. There is much written on this man and much can be learned especially in the way of getting unstuck.
You know what I mean by STUCK, right? Maybe your routine has become unproductive for your health or finances ...

TAX Day – Ugh!!
I recently read where we were working January 1st through June 30th of each year, just to pay all of our taxes. After that, you keep all you make. Prior to that, 100% goes to the government in some form or fashion to pay for some kind of government worker, work program, social program, defense, project, health care, common good, common projects, etc. Whatever you want to call it, April 30th is TAX day; the deadline for filing your federal income taxes in Canada.
So, in celebration of this special time of year, let’s talk TAX relief. If you received last month’s letter from me, you will recall our goal of trying to raise $15,000.00 for Hats on For Awareness, dedicated to raising awareness, understanding and acceptance of mental illness and addiction. But – we need your help and I believe you can benefit from the TAX relief as well.
Hats On For ...

Do You Trust the Ground Hog to Get It Right?
All I can say is WOW! I am sitting here at my computer typing away, thinking of how grateful I am for the value so many, like you, bring to my real estate business. I’m looking out my office window and there is a sprinkling of clouds and temps forecasted at 15 degrees Celsius today for the high. Spring is Springing!
For many across this great country it’s still COLD, grey, and snowy! Others, never see a snowflake all winter long. It very well could be SUPER COLD today right here in Mississauga (but it’s not). One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end. It does every year without fail.
Just like the seasons come and seasons go, so do the seasons of life. I’m sure you have noticed, as I have, the older I get the faster the seas ...

‘YOUR’ Life Matters…
In the news right now there are crazy things going on. Protests, police getting shot, politics with heated rhetoric. It seems there are daily news breaks that break hearts. Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter shouts one group or another. It is difficult to absorb and much of it dividing.
I like to take the opportunity at our teams weekly training event to make sure everyone is aware of our mission statement. To sum it up for you here in this month’s Homeward Bound: Your Life Matters.We get up each day and approach work and life with a mission of putting OTHERS first. I tell my team “whoever you are talking to, looking at, thinking about, whoever it is, in your ...
