  • Decorating But Keeping the Dime!

    November 28, 2010|By David Lester

    Now that I’ve landed in Hollywood and I have my amazing pad here I naturally need to decorate it.  I’m planning on being Canada’s youngest snow bird and spend six months here in the sun and write and work on some exciting projects.  (I’ve already practised driving slowly in the fast lane with my signal […]

  • Perfect Casa For Less Cash

    November 19, 2010|By David Lester

    I’ve moved into my new place here in California and I love it!  I couldn’t have found a better place.  Moving to a new city and finding a new place to call home is one of the most stressful things you can do.  Before I got to LA I had talked to agents, scoured craig’s […]

  • California Savings!

    November 8, 2010|By David Lester

    I’ve just arrived in LA for the winter to support my US version of I Heart Money.  It’s available at amazon.com in hardcopy and in Kindle format!  Shameless self promotion, I know.  I’ll be writing more frequently to talk about my adventures here and how I’m saving and re-distributing my profits to invest in my […]

  • Fat Pants Be Gone!

    October 28, 2010|By David Lester

    I’m moving to California for a few months to support my US book launch and I’ve been purging things that I don’t need for the trip.  I’ve been choosing just one of three pairs of sunglasses, just a handful of favorite tops, just my most flattering jeans, my coziest sweaters etc.  The amazing thing that […]

  • I (Heart) Money Last First Edition Books

    October 21, 2010|By David Lester

    Hey Everyone, Since my first print run in May I’ve already almost sold out of my first edition!  Thanks for everyone who has bought a copy. I really appreciate your support. I’ve heard from the book store managers that the first print edition appreciates the most.  So my advice this week is to run out […]

  • Bird on a Budget

    October 12, 2010|By David Lester

    Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone!  My Thanksgiving was ah-mazing.  It was the first time that I hosted dinner with all the fixin’s and everyone said I did an amazing job.  When I try something new I like to do it perfect the very fist time so that everyone has a great time and on a budget.

  • Give Away A Week’s Discretionary Spending And Profit!

    September 27, 2010|By David Lester

    This week I’ve decided to give away my weeks discretionary spending.  I spend about $600 a week on coffees, clothing, lunches, dinners, movies, gifts and going out with friends.  I’m on my own “Cash is King” plan where I take $300 out on Sunday night that lasts me until about Thursday and then I take […]

  • We’re Just Fancy Monkeys

    September 14, 2010|By David Lester

    From my experience with people and money I’ve decided we’re just fancy monkeys.  We respond by positive re-enforcement successfully and not very successfully to negative ones.  Negative re-enforcement will work for a short period of time but I can guarantee you that a banana will get you a monkey to do something faster than a […]

  • Soup’s On! Be Happy.

    September 8, 2010|By David Lester

    Everyday I wake up and think about all of the fun things that I’m going to do today.  I have found that the key to happiness is to figure out what makes you happy, and then build those things into your daily routine. Life should be a smorgasbord: everyday you should get to choose from a giant […]

  • Sir Richard Branson’s Bundles

    August 31, 2010|By David Lester

    Sir Richard Branson is a great guy.  He went from being a young middle class English dude to being a huge entrepreneur, being knighted, changing industries, the world even.  I read his autobiography a few years back and the one thing that stuck with me was his philosophy on growing his business.  I found it […]
