Visual Assistance For Making Decisions

guest blog by Nila Ridings
My lifelong friend shared the video below with me.

The visual images put life into perspective in a way that makes a person think. Think, about what has been accomplished and what lies ahead.

Where is it we wish to be down the road? The young may be seeking the perfect mate, an exciting career, a dream car, or a luxury vacation. The older folks mostly set their focus on their health (and wish it had been their top priority decades before), hope they can hold onto their job until they can afford to retire, and they cherish calls from friends and family while clinging tightly to their beloved pets.

When it comes to the roof over all of our heads…I hope the young have learned to run from condos, POAs, and HOAs. I wish every senior would get out of them before they cannot make the move. And for those still able-bodied and know the risks I hope for them to find the motivation to pack up and drive right out the gate. I fall into the latter category and this video just helped me to stay focused on my goal.

If you find it interesting and motivating, please share it. I’m so thankful my dear friend shared it with me.

His new book, "Neighbors At War: the Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association," is now available for purchase. In it, he discusses the American homeowners association movement, from its racist origins, to its transformation into a lucrative money machine for the nation's legal industry. From scams to outright violence to foreclosures and neighborhood collapses across the country, the reader will find this book enormously compelling and a necessary read for every homeowner. Knowledge is self-defense. No homeowner contemplating life in an HOA should neglect reading this book. No HOA board officer should overlook this examination of the pitfalls in HOA management. And no lawyer representing either side in an HOA dispute should gloss over what homeowners are saying or believing about the lawsuit industry.
