Edwards/Forbes Apologies

After I got the story the Edwards/Forbes deal flew to Orlando where I became an IRA distribution specialist at the beautiful at least by Orlando standards Rosen Centre. Here's the guy's cheesy looking website. He's a smart guy and is the the Journal every other day and is the leading expert of making sure your IRA is handled right. Thought they were simple? Think again.

The charge for this thing was $1,795. There were 300+ advisors attending. The marketing speaker who we skipped out on probably paid for the hotel so he could sell his crap. So for one day of speaking and one day of questions, he nabbed at least $500,000. He does this twice a year. He did have to pay to bring a few staff members, but, God, that's great.

Anyway, the first night, a fire alarm went off in the hotel at 4, I couldn't get back to sleep. The next night I felt l ike hell and couldn't sleep again. Now I woke up early back in Bellevue.

I'm taking today off. Maybe I'll update you on Edwards/Forbes later today. I'm going back to bed.

Stay You.
