Hey, I haven't been invited to those Schwab seminars but I have been to American Century ones. Met some really rich folks there but mostly middle aged and up. Too bad I'm not a gold digger and looking.

These remind me of the offers for a free vacation/weekend at a time share. All you have to do is listen to their sales pitch, but there will be no pressure and then enjoy your weekend
I would not have anyone adopt my mode of living...but I would have each one be very careful to find out and pursue his own way, and not his father's or his mother's or his neighbor's instead. Thoreau, Walden
