Now that I am without a real "job" I've been to a couple presentations. One was to sell prepaid legal services to people, the other to be a financial "consultant" and sell stuff through AIG...er I mean Sage Point.
In both presentations, and in presentations I've seen throughout the years I've always seen charts that go nothing but up. Similarly, both companies wanted me to pay an upfront fee to join them. That kinda sucked.
So, the next time I am at a presentation, even if I'm buying or selling stuff, I'm not going to post a chart with an arrow going up. They're just ploys for others to make obscene amounts of money off my back.
