A New Day Has Risen

Yesterday, I felt the world resting on my shoulders and was unable to shake the feeling of melancholy, depression and the inactivity of life surrounding myself. Yesterday, I said goodbye to the closest person I know and walked out the front door with nothing in my pockets, no identification and with a plan unlike any…

The Precipice and a Gesture on Easter

For days now I’ve been reflecting across decisions made throughout my adult life analyzing and wondering how each of those choices lead to a plethora of monotonous structures to climb up, down and around. How each decision made an impact on one life after another. A few years back I made a decision to start…

An Afternoon at Sun Tree Spa; Was it Worth the Price?

You have all seen the commercials of people sitting by a zero gravity swimming pool lying just a few steps from a gorgeous beach with palm trees in the foreground. Then the camera pans over to a beautiful couple getting a massage beneath a gazebo their minds a million miles away from reality. Of course…

Sun Tree Spa, Round 3: The Swedish Massage

Waking up from a short nap, I looked up at my wife with a kinked neck “what time is it?” She looked down at from her book and responded, “a few minutes until a quarter til the hour, why?” SHIT!! Were Late!! … went through my mind as my cellphone started vibrating and dancing across…

SURPRISE it’s YOUR Birthday!

Every one of us until the end of time will have an annual day where we get to “celebrate” the day we were born. There are literally hundreds of thousands of ways to spend your time on this special day. Some people choose to take the day off work, others wait to have quality time…

Sun Tree Spa, Round 2: The Facial

“Are you ready Aaron?” Emma asked as I re-entered the spa waiting room. “Sort of,” I replied in a sarcastic I don’t know what’s coming next tone. She picked up on my hesitation then says, “there’s nothing to worry about. Do you know your skin type?” I shake my head no. “No worries, I will…

Sun Tree Spa, Round 1: The Pedicure

“Hello I’m Andrea and she’s Emma, we will be taking care of you this afternoon,” she said followed by, “Shauna you’ll be with me and Aaron with Emma.” They both smiled then picked up our clipboards and forms to read our health history prior to the treatments beginning. Whilst walking down the hallway Emma asked…

Walking Down Moose Jaw’s Main Street

After double duty in the underground tours we parted ways with a bottle of Smoking Gun hot sauce made with ghost peppers, garlic, vinegar and spices. Also we picked up a postcard depicting the Dominion Lands Office in 1908 which today is where the Tunnels of Moose Jaw operates out of. Between the two tours…

The Truth About Moose Jaw’s Underground Tunnels

To begin the excitement today we booked two tours, The Chicago Connection about prohibition in the 1920’s and the famous Chicago gangster Al Capone. Then a break until we went underground again to learn about Bunker 24, the cold war and the fight against communism. The first thing you need to understand about these tours…

Where Does a Seven Hour Drive East Take You to in Saskatchewan?

This morning my eyes POPPED OPEN at an unknown hour until I reached out for the phone turning it over to reveal 6:49am. Too soon for this vacation head to move from the comfortable bed. Rolling over face back into pillow I feel asleep for another forty-five minutes. Around seven-thirty, I rolled out of the…

Living the Dream is Not Having Financial Freedom

Here in North America there is this lingering theme of “living the dream” and “having financial freedom” but what’s interesting about these ideas is most people are not taught how-to be successful at these things when they are young. The people whom we are taught and mentored by never seem to talk about business, financials…

What Did You Love About Cuba? A Dolphin Named Nina!

We met Nina on a trip to Cuba back in 2017. We stood in line like the rest of the tourists to hang out inside a giant concrete pool in the middle of the ocean. It was both super random and pretty fun. At first we felt kind of bad for these dolphins locked up….

Do You Have an Affiliate Marketing Mentor?

Its probably been said one-million times before that you should get yourself an excellent mentor and follow their guidance on how-to become the object of your wildest desires. The obvious first step is figuring out whom these “mentors” are going to be? What skills do they have to provide guidance? How are they going to…

An Ultra Embarrassing Start to Hello Wisconsin!!!

Perhaps there should be an unwritten law about when travellers on an airplane should shout out HELLO WISCONSIN!!! at the precise moment the airplanes’ wheels touch the tarmac at General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee Wisconsin? For whatever reason the passengers around me erupted into laughter as the stewardess picked up the announcement phone to…

Where Did Your Investment Knowledge Begin?

For myself the idea of investing money in the stock market began whilst I was selling cellular phones at a small shop in Bellevue, Washington in the late 1990’s when a colleague of mine who was 15-years older began talking to me about investing in my future. We would talk for hours about investment strategies…

The Latte Factor; A Millionaire’s Investment Strategy

What seems like forever ago I was sitting back in my desk pencil in the right hand scribbling in the margin of my three-ring notebook whilst listening to three cheerleaders talking about some “special trick” they were planning on practicing tonight at practice for the BIG GAME next week. While they talked about the “special…

A FREE Ride on the Delta Express Tram

After polishing off the two 500-gram bins of food and washing it down with a cool litre of water from the Yeti tumbler it was time to get back on my feet and figure out how-to get onto the Delta Express Train running back and forth across the ceiling tiles. Wandering a bit further down…

Laying Over in Detroit Rock City

It sounds waaaaay better than it actually was. Our CJ200 airplane took off from Toronto Pearson International Airport in Ontario Canada shortly after 7:45am eastern standard time (EST) and came to a rolling holt at one of the many gates along Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, in Detroit, Michigan USA. The time reported by Co-pilot…

Outlining Your Plans to Become an Affiliate Marketer

The very first thing anyone whose peddling the idea behind Affiliate Marketing informs you is the success rate of an Affiliate is less than 10%. This means 90% of people who attempt Affiliate Marketing are failing. Why? It is probably not from a lack of trying. Fair enough. What’s ironic for us though, is we…

The Side Hustle; How to Earn Passive Income!

According to our friends over at Merriam Webster and by literal definition, Side Hustle is a way to obtain by use of energy an activity that will sell or promote a new market or product. Another way to look at a Side Hustle is to think of it as an active way to participate in…

One Thousand Entries for Twenty Bucks; 50/50 Are You For Real?

Seriously 50/50 has become an explosive fundraising event here in the Capital City of Alberta. Our province and its residents have gone ape shit krazy about the chance to win a fifty-percent pot. A few years back in 2019 the 50/50 was spread across an online fundraising page. The page had 10,000 hits every second….

How Do You Make Money Blogging?

This is the BIG question isn’t it. How will we make money blogging? Can our blog idea become BIG enough enough where it begins earning a bit of coin? Is there anything we can proactively do to ensure our blog is growing, bring in traffic, and organic views? All of these questions have been pondered…

Year Two Cost of Ownership; Its a Taco Anniversary!

Damn! Its been another 365-days which have blown past without any elongated road trips to talk about! This pandemic really needs to end, then we’ll pack up Franken-Taco for a long legged road trip out to Manitoba to stretch his proverbial legs and wrack-up some good kilometres driven. If it’s not evident, I’m still a…
