November 1, 2006. Heidi and I have been working on something new today and I've got to tell you, it has made the day just disappear. It is the biggest waste of time, it can be so addictive. But we felt like we needed to do it. Heidi convinced me to put the Money-Guy credo of MySpace money-guy page. So we've gone out there and done that, let me tell you. MySpace is the biggest vortex that can suck you in and then you waste, you know, three or four hours and you wonder where in the world the time went, and I know MySpace has a bad reputation with the way the media's put it out there, and I can even tell you when Heidi and I were playing around, looking around, we found you can click on these new people that have just subscribed, they're the cool people, supposedly, and it is disturbing to see 16 and 15-year-olds with grey goose bottles in their ID pictures, but other than that, I think it's a pretty cool thing where you can network, and we want to give you our new MySpace page, if you go to MySpace, our url number is, or address, whatever you want to call this thing is , you know, of course the www.myspacemoney-guypodcast. And you can go check us out, we have all of our shows out there, the majority of our shows archived out there so you can check it out, maybe even become a friend of the show, and then pass it on to a friend. It's just another way for us to increase the number of people out there subscribing to the money-guy podcast. Now what is the money-guy podcast?

My whole purpose is to try to just bring a little bit of the kind of advice that I provide to my wealth management clients, to everyone else out there listening through their iPod, mp3 player, whatever is out there, we are going to restore order to your financial chaos. If you do want to contact the show, let me give you the important and pertinent numbers to contact. You can call the 1-800 number and leave us a voice mail, describing a question that you might have. It's 1-800-762-8502, that's once again, 1-800-762-8502, or you can do it the traditional email way, and that's brian firstname.lastname@example.org, and of course check out our website to get show notes as well as to subscribe to our email newsletter, and you can do that at money-guy.com.
Now today's show, I can take a clue. And I have not done this show on purpose. And I've done everything in my power to try to avoid doing this show, but you guys won't leave me alone. And I'm just, you know, I can take a hint after a while. I feel like I've been clubbed over the head enough that I've realized that I'll go ahead and do this show, knock it out, and then you guys will hopefully not pick on me and ask me this question any more. So I'm going to do it, and I say that with as much, as big a smile as I can on my face, I don't want you guys to think that I don't like getting your emails or voice mails, I just, this is something that I've been real timid on giving advice on.
