A year in the making and we’re finally here–ready to launch the 2011 version of Senior Market Advisor Expo being held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. SMAX is the only true peer-to-peer event in the industry and a great opportunity for advisors to learn from and network with other advisors.
There are CE credited workshops that begin at 8 a.m. on Wed., Aug. 24, but the show officially kicks off later that day at 3:30 p.m. with opening keynote speaker, Larry Winget. Known as the “pitbull of personal development,” Winget stirred up a hornet’s nest with his recent blog: “The corruption of the self-help movement.”
Winget is sure to get the crowd on its toes with comments like this one from his blog: “I doubt there is anyone who can make an intelligent argument against the fact that we have become the society with the biggest sense of entitlement in the history of our world. In fact, the bulk of all government spending is for a series of programs actually called ‘entitlement’ programs.”
