Giving the Gift of Shut Up

Dear Friends and Partners,

Get ready for an awesome New Year 2011 as we move forward with an investing period akin to the early 2000's. You'll see; steady economic growth, modest property prices, low mortgage rates, ample supply of residential buildings, positive in-migration and increasing rents.

These key indicators among other factors, put you in the right position to be for the next 5-7 year cycle, which will start showing momentum from 2012. If you feel the fear, challenge and uncertainty of the times, take a big chunk of Steve Chandler's advice along with you into the New Year.

This will be the first Christmas that we've had together with our Canadian family in well over 10 years, and I envision it being very special. My main goal this holiday season is to shut up. That's right, shut up.

I want to be 'in the moment' and really connect with my family and friends, and I think the way to really, truly do this is by listening to all they have to say and then some.

If your gatherings are like mine, you might find yourselves good-naturedly talking over one-another. I know I do. We all have busy, creative lives and feel the biting urge in sharing them with each other; we enjoy the banter and wit of joking together. And that'll still happen, but my goal is to really 'hear' what is going on with my loved ones this holiday season, so shutting up is what I'm going to do. (Yes, me zipping it will also be a precious gift to some family and friends ;)

Looking to do a little more? You can help a hungry family have a better holiday season by donating to CBC's 15th Annual Turkey Drive right here.

I appreciate all your calls and emails. I'm looking forward to helping you with your next step towards building real wealth.

Your success continues TODAY, let me help you build upon it.

"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each year find you a better man." -Benjamin Franklin
