Well put
 
Think about your #future and say no to #drugs.

The applicants who have a history of past drug use, including hard drugs such as #cocaine, may have a difficult time obtaining #life #insurance.

Great Article on the huge potential pitfalls of Universal Life insurance. There are many issues that can arise with these that shift the risk back to the policy owner and away from the insurance company. Be clear and ask questions when being shown these types of products, be aware what gaurantees they claim may not protect your based on company profitability

worth signing - the private sector can make this happen. Tax payers are the ones who should foot the bill

Introduction

Changing Directions

In February 2008, Richard Canfield turned his back on the six figure income he was earning through his company as a journeyman electrician contracting to an oil sands giant. At only 26, Richard was earning top dollar within his trade, but he left it all to begin building a completely new business. Sometimes, he discovered, it’s possible to lose your way even if you’re making great time. He didn’t need a map. He needed a new purpose.

 

The Entrepreneurial Drive

Electrician is just one of the many hats Richard has worn. Born into a family business, working hard came naturally to him. He graduated with honors from high school, often doing his homework while “getting dirty” on the front line running errands and delivering shipments for his parents’ company. Coming from an entrepreneurial family had its perks, however, as Richard got an early start in real estate investing. Investing as a family in the very beginning, Richard learned valuable lessons about acquiring and, more importantly, handling the financing and cashflow of multiple properties.

 

Evolving From Landlord To Investor

Acquiring more properties personally and through partnerships, Richard realized he’d rather be a real estate investor than a landlord. Focusing on his career as an electrician, he used his creativity to build strategic partnerships that freed him from managing and left more time for investing his steadily increasing income in new properties. Richard finished his journeyman certificate in 2003. Whether working as a lead-hand, foreman, or contractor, his willingness to take on responsibility for projects and deliver results kept propelling him upwards in the trade.

 

Doing and Teaching

Richard came to teaching naturally as more and more apprentices were assigned to him for training. Along with organizing crews, supervising, encouraging, and motivating his team in the trade, Richard found himself frustrated with the lack of basic financial education. Taking groups aside and doing informal jobsite seminars, Richard always promoted a message of taking concrete action and being accountable for who and where you are financially. Richard’s real world experience in real estate, investing, and running his own company lent weight to his words.

 

The more time Richard spent teaching and learning about real estate, investing, joint venture partnerships, and finance in general, the more he began to wonder about his own life. He’d worked hard to get where he was, and the easy thing would be to enjoy the benefits. But Richard had a revelation – working harder for money was a dead end. What he wanted was to create a lifestyle he was willing to work hard for. Richard left the trade because, although he was excelling in it, it wasn’t part of the personal mission statement he was building.

 

S.I.M.P.L.E.

Don Campbell, president of the Real Estate Investment Network, introduced Richard to an acronym that would guide him to places where his work ethic alone couldn’t take him. S.I.M.P.L.E. or, “Significantly Impact Many People’s Lives Everyday,” became his personal mission statement. Already well-placed in the real estate community, Richard utilized powerful relationships to help people take control of their finances – whether becoming debt-free, creating their own bank, buying their first property, building partnerships, or any other win-win situation he could help foster.  Bridging the gap between those looking for a solution and those who can provide it, Richard uses his extensive network to connect the dots.

 

Moving Forward

Changing gears entirely has meant a variety of new and interesting challenges for Richard. He made the leap from real estate investor to realtor, picking up his life insurance license along the way. Taking both life experience and learning lessons from the mistakes and successes of others, he now implements educational concepts when he sits down with potential investors, joint venture partners, and clients throughout North America. His entire focus is to create wealth for Canadian families, enabling them to achieve results financially and personally.

 

Building A Network of Success

Everyone in Richard’s network shares his high standards of personal integrity. They may adhere to different mission statements, but constant improvement - both personal and professional - is at the heart of all of them. His passion is aimed at helping Canadians master 20/20 financial foresight. Richard teaches families to live their lives by their priorities, not their obligations.

Jamie Keith with Access Home Inspections Services in Edmonton Alberta Canada is a top notch home inspector. As a realtor with Realty Executives Polaris in Edmonton, I am adamant about home inspections and quite picky about the inspectors I work with. I have found Jamie to be one of the absolute best in Alberta. He is extremely diligent and observant and he produces high quality reports that assist home buyers in both recognizing problems and information on things to watch out for in the future. Jamie is able to do sewer line scopes as well as Thermal Imaging scans which is worth its weight in gold for what you can see in a property. His inspections have saved many of my clients a great deal of money at negotiating time. I will continue to recommend Jamie to my clients, friends and family. Keep up the good work!

I am very happy with my new windows. I have had several quotes from other window companies. The quotes were similair overall but the window type and quality (triple Pane) with Econline is greater. Most impressive was the knowledge and explanination of the windows and the options available with them. A large selling feature to us was the vinyl moldings for the interior that can snapped in and removed easily. This is great for long term and paint changes in the future. I was happy with Alex's committment to working efficiently and doing good finishing work. They cleaned as they went and were on time. On day 2 when Alex needed to come by and do some finishing he was accomodating and gave me a courtesy call in advance of his arrival - keeping in mind that I had other things to do with my day. Thanks Ecoline - I am happy with my new windows.

Got Knots is an incredible place to go and get yourself fixed! I have had Nadine help me several times getting aligned and thankfully getting movement back in my neck etc. I have always been impressed with the way she is able to integrate massage with other techniques to encourage fuller range of motion. I always feel like I get a massage and physio appointment all in one when I go to see them. Thanks so much and keep up the good work! Richard

I have a ML320 Mercedes that I bought used off of a friend. It is not my favourite vehicle and my first experience with something that is so much of a speciality item to fix. I have been looking hard to find a good group or people who could help me repair its many foibles. Thanks to a recommendation from a friend I found these guys. Don and the crew have been very helpful and provide good service for these type of vehicles. Thanks Guys and keep it up.
