We love being able to show our appreciation to our clients, and the Depot Room setting is the ideal place. Michele and Juliet are still finalizing the plans, so mark your calendar for Valentine's Day at 3:00.
3 - January and February constitute conference season for me. First up will be the Inside ETFs Conference next Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. This conference is tightly focused on investing and features some of the top minds in the investment world. I always learn a lot there, and you'll get a report upon my return.
Have a stellar week!
Here's a preview of some of the interesting conversation you can look forward to at tomorrow's panel discussion. Panelist and local businessman Bob Quattlebaum -- who travels extesively and does business in China -- sat down in my office last week to talk about some of the factors affecting our economy. As he talked, I pulled out my mini-camcorder and recorded part of the conversation. In this 2-minute clip, Bob discusses just one of many such factors. Please join us on Tuesday, January 17 at 5:30pm.
