I was up 337% in 1999.

That's nothing. The sock puppet from Pets.com was up 800% over the same time period. I'd rather give my money to him.

The sock puppet is currently a mascot for a car loan company with the slogan "Everybody deserves a second chance."

I'm living in a mansion in one of Money magazines best 100 places to live.

The choice is yours.

I've been to your town. No offense, but there's a reason that I don't put much stock in Money

I think we're defining "success" along too narrow of a line. For example, if we were to imagine who likes having an arm shoved up their ass more, I'm guessing the sock puppet is ahead by a mile.

This is a tough call though; I'll get back to you.

Ok, I'm in at $2. Is that per minute, hour, day, month, year, or a one-time bunny love type deal?

Simple terms. For every dollar you make, I get two dollars.

Thats a nice discount over the way most advisors work.

And heck, if you dont make any money, neither do I! How can you lose?
