    RANT Are all business brokers terrible?

    I once found a business that was interesting and emailed the broker who had the listing twice. I never heard back anything. To be fair It was a business that may have required qualifications beyond the purchase price (a farm machinery dealership) that I didn’t have. Or maybe they were already...

    Dan Pena's system

    I listened to a few you tube clips, the process he described for borrowing money was extremely unrealistic (for Canada at least).

    OFF-TOPIC Money Doesn't Buy HappYness?

    It may not make you happy. But no money at all for anything definitely makes you unhappy.

    HOT TOPIC Opinion: Skipping college is not going to make you fastlane

    For some reason this is an emotional subject where people often get defensive on both sides. People who didn’t go often seen defensive and are quick and vocal to prove/insist that they were the smart ones because they saw through the charade that is higher education, and the people who went...

    Reading The Same Books Over and Over vs Reading Different Books

    I think it depends some books just lend themselves to rereading and some don’t. In the case of MJ’s books I find that I am energized to reread after the Fastlane Summit or when I spend a lot of time on the board. I have read MFL prob 4-5 times and I have to say sometimes I feel like every page...

    People really don’t understand how bad this is. They are limiting milk purchases at stores and dairy farmers are dumping (not selling cheap, dumping milk down the drain.) They are limiting purchases of ground beef and not slaughtering fat cattle. I don’t mean to be chicken little but that is...

    I was pro vaccine (and still am sort of) but when I saw friends went through when their child had a suspected reaction and it changed me a bit. No one and I mean no one would acknowledge it was even a possibility. My friends weren’t after a big payday they just wanted best advice for treatment...

    It is worrisome, I am a member of a large message board for the Calgary Flames Hockey team. (Been a member since 2002, but lost my interest in pro sports a long time ago.) in any event they have actually have quite a vibrant off topic board which I follow for more local news/events since I moved...

    I don’t have anything to add but my wife just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on April 7th in Canada. We heard the same rumours that you had and thankfully we got out in just under 2 days. The staff were great but there seemed to be no consistent standards(granted we are small town...

    I am Canadian and kind of indifferent towards Trump but this is why I have high hopes for him leading the world out of this mess. Most leaders around the world are career politicians who are more than happy to hide behind the “experts”. They can’t be blamed if they followed the experts advice...

    This is very true, I used to operate a Cattle feedlot and 1% deathloss was very good. So a 100000 head feedlot operation that is turning their inventory twice a year will have 6 a day dead.

    A question for Gilman Why is social distancing so effective? If it can live in the air for 3 hours whether I am 1 foot away from the infected person or arrive in their contaminated air two steps later doesn’t seem like it would make much difference.

    Idea Brainstorming Session

    Not to contribute nothing and make you feel bad at the same time, but this is why you must attend the Summit. One of the speakers did an incredibly powerful brainstorming demonstration with volunteers from the audience.

    The food supply is going to be interesting not so much right now but putting the 2020 crop in the ground. We have a narrow window and if for whatever reason we can’t get seed, fertilizer, or manpower for April-May there could be some serious food issues going forward. There is tremendous...

    I did want to touch on the 82 billion the Canadian government is announcing. It is not 82, it is 27, still a lot for a deficit country but given the circumstances not completely unreasonable. 55 billion is in tax deferrals for a few months. They are going to collect that by August, so all they...

    I don’t mean to pry vigilante but I have a lot of respect for you and am curious on your views on helping those who haven’t prepared.

    I am curious how easily people can be manipulated. For example if people started posting pictures of empty shelves of pasta sauce would we all throw an extra can in our carts next time we are at the store, or would we make a special trip right now to make sure we were able to get it. More...

    HOT TOPIC Is Tim Ferriss a fraud?

    I may not like all the hacks but one interesting thing I have noticed is people are often resentful if you learn a skill in far less time then it took them to learn the same thing. We homeschool our kids and are easily finished by noon. (Granted our children are under 10) I find when we tell...
