    Right before I got married, the Pastor (a good friend of our family) told me, "Always remember...you can be right or you can be happy".

    Thats a good annual return. If you can keep that as an average return your going to be doing very well money wise! Got a particular investment tyep that has performed the best for you?

    There are some rough years in there. The most memorable being 2008. Biggest (liquid) investment losses ever; something like 36%. But also the biggest real estate purchases we have ever made.

    Sometimes it's about valuing the relationship first. Good advice.

    I've mentioned before that my roots are in Texas. Still have a lot of family and friends down there. So, here's some good advice from a friend of mine who is a life long Texan. He said, "You can teach a pig to climb a tree, but sometimes, it's better if you just hire a squirrel."
