“Turn off that TV, and start living!!” Updated…..!!
Here is a blog I wrote on October 24-08……………and here is what I added since Oct 24th…….
What has happened since then:
1. Dow Jones close on that day (Oct 24th 2008) was 8378, (DJ was 7775 at today’s close Mar 23-09!)
2. Obama wasn’t President
3. We thought that 8378 DJ was the end of the world!!
So read up below!
Oct 24th, 2008
So you are listening to that doom and gloom and all that recessionary-speak has put you in a depression!
So what do you do?
Turn off that TV and start living!!
We live in a great country, where people care for each other, our social system is great, and guess what, every day above ground is a great day!
Ok so your land deals are going to take twenty years to get out of, (ok, so the kids will get to live it up!), your condo and apartment deals will take a while to get back to where it should be and your home price is probably still worth more than what you paid for it..!
Your cash flow investments will still be going well, the values of those investments haven’t gone down, and if you were lucky enough to have bought in Alberta your rents are still going up!
Look around there are many opportunities along the way. Open your eyes and look for them, they are there.
So like my partner Howard says, “Why so glum, chum?” Phone me and I will tell you a joke or two, 4036304544!!
Go for a walk, enjoy the fresh air and be glad we can walk, and breathe!
Have that TV turned to the sports channel or anything but the news! Stay tuned!!!
