Be Thankful Today

Hello again fellow investor,

I received the following statistics from a friend of mine several years ago. I review this information on occasion because it helps me to stay grounded and to fully appreciate what I have. I hope it has the same affect on you. I have updated the figures based on a few Google searches that I did.

If we could shrink the earth’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look like something like the following.

  • 30 would suffer from malnutrition
  • 33 would live in substandard housing
  • 20 would be unable to read
  • 2 would have a college education
  • 2 would own a computer

At least for today, don’t let yourself get down over the recession. Keep things in perspective, and be thankful for what you have. And always remember that where there is great turmoil, there is even greater opportunity.

Until next time, happy (and profitable) investing!

Doug Smith

P.S. These turbulent times mean huge profits for investors who act now and buy from the desperate sellers who post properties to our site. Go to today to begin your trial today.

MyHouseDeals was founded in April of 2005 and has since provided information on thousands of bargain-priced properties with over $7 Billion in equity (and growing!) In addition to property lists, we help investors succeed by providing valuable tools, resources and education. Most of the properties on MyHouseDeals are single-family houses. Many of these properties are wholesale deals, which are for sale by other investors. Others are motivated seller leads, which are for sale by homeowners who are often in a bad situation. These properties are typically discounted by far greater amounts than bank foreclosures.
