The Golden Globes are picked by just 100 people, including car salesmen, real estate agents and hairdressers

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 04:11:56 -0800

From this Toronto Star article:

Current Hollywood Foreign Press Association members include real-estate agents, car salesmen, showbiz publicists, hairdressers and even a few journalists. All that is required to maintain membership is permanent residence in Southern California (so much for "foreign") and a mere four published articles per year, often in obscure publications that aren't freely disclosed.

The HFPA pretends to be a democratic operation, but it operates mainly in the dark, revealing only the names and the 55 countries represented by its members. (There are four Canadian members, one of whom, Ray Arco, also represents Denmark.)

I know it's mostly about the fancy dresses, but I'm always struck by how much power this group of 100 fairly random people wields. I imagine that they are buried in swag (and, no doubt, the occasional bribe) every year in exchange for their votes.

The necessity of real estate in plans for FI?

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 05:39:25 -0800

I'm currently reading the Automatic Millionaire Homeowner by David Bach. I think a lot of his statements are problematic, but I can't deny that the majority of people who've become FI seem to have a heavy involvement with real estate. Maybe it's just confirmation bias though. Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone has become FI (or is on the way to becoming FI) without significantly personally investing in real estate (I don't consider REITs, just people who own property and are landlords or use a property management company).

If real estate is necessary (or at least, makes the journey much shorter), how does someone with absolutely no knowledge go about getting started? Is it just a matter of having the discipline to save up a down payment and then hiring a property management company? Or should you learn how to do home repairs and buy fixer-uppers? If the latter, how do you learn those skills, assuming you don't have any friends or relatives to show you how -- do you just sign up for classes at the local community college?

Edit: I'm in Canada -- does that change your advice in any way? I live in one of the big cities with heated markets, and some people are predicting a cool off if oil prices stay low, which is why my interest has been piqued.

Edit #2: I've seen some interesting answers. Here's another discussion point: How long will it take (or did it take) for you to reach FI? For further clarification: a) did you use real estate? b) how big was your portfolio when you reached your goal? c) what's your current "passive" monthly income?

Feel free to answer some or none of those questions if they're too intrusive!
