It was a very very cheep house, I asked the Real Estate guy is it liveable...and
But with hard work, it was a total bargain.
I was very happy....I knew if I didn't put money on it, another would not come along at that price....I was dead right, had to take the chance.
I'm not generally a risk taker myself but I think one the greatest risks I've taken in recent time was to purchase a second hand car without having my mechanic testing it first. That car gave me hell afterwards.
My biggest risk was biggest gain. I moved across Canada, almost on a whim, for a three month contract job. The job fell through, but I stayed anyway. Meeting the woman who would alter become my wife was a major point of the trip. I lost the job but got the girl.Big risk, big reward.
