As someone who undertook a mission to evaluate 12 retirement seminars at local restaurants this year, I can actually in-vision receiving an invite or two soon that will suggest that I call the 800 # below and join the gang at the local Olive Garden for a gourmet meal and a 90 minute educational seminar on this excellent opportunity.
