Story
Introduction
I am a Vancouver based financial advisor at IPC Investment Corporation. Although many people have the same financial goal, their situations are often unique, and there is no one size fits all solution to reach their goals. I pride myself in being able to design customized solutions to help them achieve their dreams. The services I provide include planning for retirement, saving taxes and providing insurance advice. On the small business side, I do group benefits and retirement programs.

What's all this retirement planning for, anyway?

This was sent to me in an email, and I have to share. It is going around FB, and it should be going around G+ too.

"We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re approaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:

‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.

I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”

Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square in front of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in through the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have any suspended coffee?’

It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm beverage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it."

very respectfully,
Scott Sonnon

$1000+ Cash giveaway!
You read that right! I'm giving away $1000 of my own hard earned money in cold hard cash this Christmas in what I hope will be one of the biggest giveaways the Canadian personal finance blogging scene has ever seen. In addition, I'm going to be contacting every Canadian personal finance blogger ...

Although it's overpriced, you can't beat the view from the top. The quality of the camera at the top is a bit disappointing, but it's good that they let you keep it along with the one taken at the bottom of the tower for free. Get the combo ticket with Chihuly glad museum, as there is some very beautiful glass art and is better value than the Space Needle alone.

Located right next to the airport, you'd expect to hear the sound of planes overhead, but no such disturbances were heard. The bathroom was unusually large. The room was cleaner than you'd expect from a motel. Overall it's a good place to stay for cheap.

There are some amazing exhibits here and as someone who has never been to a glass museum, some of the displays blew my mind. A definite must go if you've never been. Get it as a package with the Space Needle if you've never been to either. Don't forget to visit the garden before you leave!
