Jason Hartman starts today from his Aunt Joanie's house discussing a recent trend among her renters: lease breaking. Joanie has noticed that several of her tenants seem to be jumping in to the buy side after they had given up over the summer. Jason and Joanie discuss why this might be and the correlation between rents and home prices.
Then Jason talks with Diana Butler Bass, Ph.D. in religious studies and award-winning author of 10 books including her newest, Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks. The two dive in to why being grateful is important, both for the community and the individual. Diana explains the 4 dispositions of gratitude and the health benefits that come from being grateful.
PLUS, don't forget to take advantage of Jason's massive Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale!
