  2. Debt: methods to kick the habit, for good.
  3. Your Brain, Your Guts, Your money: create a powerful set of beliefs about money to prime yourself for financial success.
  4. Goals and Dreams: clarifying and creating action plans for your real world.
  5. Make your money work while you sleep: understanding the 101’s of investing. Passive revenue streams. Find out exactly what’s happening with your RRSPs and mutual funds

1.  Not the usual ‘freebie Wednesday’ stuff I do, but this is worth viewing (I went to one of their comedy festivals last spring.  It was extremely funny, moving, inspiring.)

Cracking Up is a l ife-affirming documentary about people with mental illness who embark on a quirky quest to become stand up comics. The film follows 11 courageous people who suffer from mental illness as they pursue a year of stand up comedy. Part fun and part therapy, the course, entit l ed Stand Up For Menta l Hea l th is the brainchild of Vancouver counsel or, stand-up comic, and author of The Happy Neurotic: How Fear and Angst Can Lead To Happiness and Success David Granirer. “It’s like ‘The Full Monty’ except people want us to keep our clothes on”, he says.


Festival Vancouver presents classical music all over the city for a couple weeks, including some free lunch hour concerts live at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Stroll by with an iced latte or lite lunch, and take in some talent next week, Tuesday Aug 7, Wednesday Aug. 8, Thur. August 9th.

OK, this isn’t directly money related, but …garbage strikes are miserable all ’round.   Here’s someone who can help, and here’s his pricing (totally reasonable):Thomas Goodall of Fresh Start Recycling. Cell:  778-773-2297Office: 604-637-6400His offer:

$5 per bag, you can fit two standard curb-side bags in a bin, so each

bin is $10 approx. 

We’re charging $5 per bag for 1 – 5 bags, and $3 for

each additional bag when it’s 6+. 4 bags are $20, 5 bags are $25, 6 bags

are $28 and so on. 

The minimum charge is $20 per house, but if I can

get a bunch of houses in a neighbourhood than I may not charge the

minimum per house.  


If you support the unions or labour you’re free to write the mayor a

letter, but that letting a raccoon have a field day in your garage with

your trash is not the way to solidarity; It’s just hosting a raccoon
