It dawns on me that I have come from a place of hating the whole investing thing finding it confusing with little success to now when I find it interesting and something I like doing. As of late a well paying hobby if you will. I owe so much of this to you Derek, thank you for showing me the way. When I reflect on it there is so much stuff out there of contradictory information is it any wonder it is confusing. You my friend have been an inspiration, rock and beacon. I know I have paid you tribute before but I believe it important because it represents the financial well being of not only myself but my family also and I am grateful. Your integrity, passion, positivity and selflessness is admirable. Thank you for showing me the way
I just wanted to let you know that we took your advice and bought and moved to a new house in the same neighborhood (instead of doing the big renovation on the old house). It has now been 1 year and it is very clear to me that, doing the math, moving was by far the cheaper (not mention less stressful) choice. I estimate the reno approach would have at least two times more expensive. Thanks again. Great advice
I was able to decrease the house insurance for my Victoria home by 35%, thank you for directing me to TD Insurance Meloche Monnex. I was able to decrease the house insurance
I want to offer once more my thanks for the wonderful things you do for Facelift and, as well, the kindness and wisdom you radiate when we speak. You are a person of exceptional insight and a planner with that rarest of qualities - imagination. And you can tell 'em I said so. Financial Planner with Exceptional Insight
I thank you for sorting out my money dilemmas and for emphasizing that I need to get to know my money managers and use those who are Chartered Financial Advisors as they are more likely to take their fiduciary responsibility to their clients seriously; I enjoyed meeting you and the other financial advisor whom you sent me to see. It is a pity that I did not meet someone like you 30 years ago. Thanks for all your help, Fiduciary Responsibility
