77 Seconds with Sam – Post Retirement work


 Some of you have been wondering what I’m up to since I started my early retirement. Well, besides chasing around three kids in diapers I’ve been working on installing a legal basement suite, here is a quick tour of work in progress. 

If you want the details of this deal or are curious how you can make money like this, reach out at

I had a great day and no bad luck, I hope you had the same 🙂  Some people might be superstitious about Friday the 13th, so I did some research to see where this idea came from. Here is an article with some surprising facts:
– the plane crash of the true survival story depicted in the 1993 movie “Alive” was on this date 1972
– in the UK there are more car crashes on Friday the 13th
– there are fewer crashes and insurance claims on this date in the Netherlands
– in numerology “12” indicates completeness, so 13 is incongruent
– in the US, a change in behaviour thanks to this date costs an estimated $800-900 million that day
– Finland always holds “national accident day” on Friday the 13th
– there may be some Christian roots to the superstition(although being superstitious is not Christian)
– it is a relatively new western superstition(19th century)

Anyway, here is what I’ve been up to the past couple weeks:

– dropped off more fliers
– had my realtor find me an awesome deal(on the surface, more on that below)
– went to Vancouver twice: learned about a creative strategy Saturday, then an awards night Monday
– only 1 vacancy left!
– writing lots of offers: two private sales in the works
