There was a story in the media a few weeks ago that profiled a typical Vancouver home owner on the East side. The gist of the story was how this homeowner had essentially made over $250,000 in the past year by doing nothing. While hard working 9 to 5ers toiled away making $50K. I first wondered if the story had been reprinted from the Onion, a satirical newspaper. Or if it had been written by a comedian. Neither turned out to be the case. The article wasn’t trying to be funny. The reported really was disdainful of the homeowners returns. I suggest people look at articles like this differently. Avoid getting swept up in the feelings of injustice or outrage that an article like this seeks to create. Think to yourself “What can i learn or gain from watching this success story” Do that and you’ll see opportunity where others cannot.
