Thank you, everyone, for the birthday wishes!
My birthday this time last year will always be a day to remember in history. March 23, 2020, was the bottom of the stock market crash, and prices only went up from there.
The upcoming year is looking brighter than last year.
Much was unknown then, but there’s much hope ahead with vaccines being approved and proving to be highly effective. My parents have both had their first shot, so that makes me happy.
This past weekend, Cherry surprised me by taking me to a gun range in Brantford, where we got to sample four different guns plus a bonus rifle just for me as it was my birthday.

I’m not a gun nut by any means, but it’s fun to target shoot once or twice per year. With the way the last year has gone, it’s important to just be around friends. Like the normal times.
A birthday tradition at my brokerage, Rock Star Real Estate is the birthday person must share words of wisdom. Mine would be a quote from T Harv Ecker: “How you do anything is how you do everything.”
I often repeat these words whenever I evaluate a potential business opportunity, specifically when evaluating someone’s character. There are many people with poor reputations and business ethics in the real estate world – I stay away from them.
By staying away, I’ve saved myself from a lot of trouble as those folks with poor reputations live up to their reputations, and it ends badly for those who were less diligent.
So take care out there! Reference check business partners no different than you call references for potential tenants.
On a brighter note, this Friday, the Hamilton Basket Brigade is back in action in advance of Easter.
Since it’s now Spring, our focus is on spring jackets and spring clothing for the elementary students of Hamilton, Ontario, so we have purchased $70,000 worth of clothing from our wholesale clothing partner in Toronto.
The best part is this only cost us $20,000, including shipping.
The plan is we’ll receive our shipment at my friend Charles Wah’s office in Hamilton, then we at iWIN Real Estate and Real Estate Tax Tips will sort the clothes and deliver them to eight local elementary schools.
The school administrators will take it from there by inviting kids in need down to the office to pick out their clothes.
The pandemic has definitely made our charity work more difficult in restricting our volunteers from gathering and reducing our donations, so we pivot, change strategies, turnover the leadership at our charity.
Cherry and I invested more to fund donations because the need is greater than ever!
