Why You Are Wealthy?

“Like all of life’s rich emotional experiences, the full flavor of losing important money cannot be conveyed by literature. You cannot convey to an inexperienced girl what it is truly like to be a wife and mother. There are certain things that cannot be adequately explained to a virgin by words and pictures.” – Fred Schwed Jr. (Author of “Where Are the Customers’ Yachts?” First…

The Success Circles

“I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made a difference that you lived at all.” Leo Rosten I have a wise friend who shared with me how he helps individuals…

The Pyramid of Investment Success

What is the secret to multi-decade, inter-generational wealth creation? Fortunately, it can be summed up in one easy illustration I call “The Pyramid of Investment Success”. I am utterly convinced that over 80% of one’s long term investment success comes down to a single variable … one’s individual behaviour. In other words, for many of us, our single greatest enemy in our quest for wealth creation is the…

When NOT To Invest

“Knowing what you don’t know is much more useful in life and business than being brilliant” – Charlie Munger (Warren Buffet’s older, and some would argue, smarter partner) I am convinced there are Canadians who can actually invest successfully themselves. However, like the Loch Ness Sea Monster, they are often sighted but rarely actually seen! For long term wealth creation you need to possess what I…

Time To Feed The Goose 2017

“Taxes are our way of feeding the goose that lays the golden eggs of freedom, democracy and enterprise. Someone says, ‘Well, the goose eats too much!’ That’s probably true.  But better a fat goose than no goose at all” – Jim Rohn As I have now begun to receive a flurry of tax “T-Statements” I realize, once again , it is that time of year…

99 Reasons 2016 Was a Good Year 

“The progress of human knowledge will be rapid, and discoveries made of which we have no conception. I begin to be almost sorry I was born so soon, since I cannot have the happiness of knowing what will be known 100 years hence.” – Benjamin Franklin It has been my practice to begin each year’s “Wealth with Wisdom” with a focus on the many positive…

Merry Christmas featuring Buster the Boxter

Clearly, I realize this video is a TV advert for the British retailer, John Lewis. Cleverly, it utilizes the song, “One Day I’ll Fly Away”, performed by the Vaults. (The original song was performed by Randy Crawford  and very much amplifies the commercial’s impact.) Creatively, it is a slick piece of marketing that is directly targeted to tug on our heart strings. Taking into account all…

Top 5 Regrets Of The Dying

If you are reading this, congratulations you likely have more money than 99% of your fellow Canadians! I believe that having secured financial freedom one is much better equipped to focus on those life goals that are truly meaningful. Think of this exercise as a version of Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs”. Recently I have been introduced to Carl Gustav Jacob Jacobi , a German mathematician who…

President Trump … Really?

The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.” -Winston Churchill I’m going to assume that you were a bit surprised when you woke up to the news that “The Donald” is now the leader of the free world. I sure as hell was! So the question is, now what? Well, in keeping with our investment philosophy that we can…

Smart-Sounding Temptations To Sell As the Market Rose

I would classify the chart below as a classic, “a picture is worth a thousand words” illustration. Please click the image below to truly appreciate how far the U.S. market has come since 1950 or, since 1970 or, since 1990 or, since 2010. As Peter Lynch once said, “The key to making money in the stock market, is not being scared out of it.” Smart-Sounding…
