More Reflections on Business

August 24th, 2012 · 4 Comments · Landlord Rescue Trademark, REIN

It’s been a rough day and a wonderful day.

The Human Condition

I read something so raw and smart and me on VREAA this morning I just had to share.

YVR Analyst wrote in the comments. ” Well I’ve been wrong – lots – but I don’t go around telling everyone about it. It’s common courtesy to keep my success at being wrong to myself, so as not to make others feel inadequate. “

The Scientific Process and Success

In science you have a theory and you try to see if it’s correct. If you are wrong you come up with a new idea and try again. You have to have ideas, love ideas but be unforgiving and cull the ideas that do not work.

Trouble is that it’s hard to tell between an idea that needs more time to bear fruit and an idea that will never bear fruit.

Then there’s the ideas that are pure rot. Like the one that came to the mind of Jared Hope & Patrick Francey & C0 to steal the name of Landlord Rescue.  That was bad, but being big important men they ignored me until the Globe & Mail Article about the trademark. So it’s been a bad idea since then and it’s never going to be a good idea.

In any case I do owe Jared and Patrick a debt of gratitude, first they provided me with a valuable opportunity to inform landlords of the dangers of genital warts. I’m not sure that has ever happened before. Second, fuck it, I’m not this gracious the Public Service Announcement will have to do. Next week the joys of genital herpes animation staring Don, Patrick, Jared & the loser of the Bum Fight.

Unhappy Tenants Referred to RECA


 I am a tenant who is renting a house through Landlord Rescue Edmonton and have been having a terrible experience. I came across the posts regarding their agency’s services, particularly about the owner Jared, whom I have dealt with myself with poor results. I have a year lease but now I am looking for a way to get out of it so I can move to a place where I will be more comfortable. I realize you are not affiliated with them, so any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I noticed that you mentioned something about an investigation going on involving them.

Seriously, this is a real email but I doubt anything seriously wrong happened here, there are no specifics and the tenant isn’t even mad.

Still I do want to prevent the scourge of unlicensed property management companies in Alberta…

Have a great night everyone!

    That Globe and Mail article comes across as a cautionary tail for those that don’t do there homework. Don’t get me wrong Rachelle, I’m a big fan of your blog. It sounds like you didn’t do your due diligence and someone else ended up scoping up the trademark. Some of the excuses about the having to change your ‘doing business as’ name were kind of weak too…..changing stationary, business cards, etc – probably cost like $100 bucks. The other company is telling you one thing but they just seem to be ignoring you, which is understandable after your last set of posts.

    I like it better when you post crazy tenant stories. Can we get back to the professional Rachelle I came to know and love.

    Looks like you are taking losing poorly. You didn’t do what was required to protect your IP. You lost your case and have nothing to show for it.

    I hope people take this series of posts as an example of why not to do business with you. You lack professionalism and the better part of good judgement.

    Rachelle I am a troll but I love you because you are a glorious faerie of light and represent all that is right with the world

    […] get more generic than that. Kind of hard to hang, draw and quarter the guy based on that evidence. Maybe Jared or Patrick gave his girlfriend genital warts. < This is a reference to a post I wrote a few days back. In truth lots of people get HPV 40%- […]
