How Do You Make Your $89,000 Each Year?

I read an article online in a Canadian newspaper today that had the headline: $89,000 puts Canadians in top 5% of tax filers Of course, I had to stop and read this article because it interested me so much.

She detailed some of her recent investments and the continuous upgrading that she and her husband have performed.  I got a great deal of information from this meeting on buying investment property.
