Yesterday, I was Tom Keene's guest on his radio show, Bloomberg on the Economy. Tom worked in financial services for years, so were able to sink into the easy conversation of two "war horses" from the Street. Here's where you can find the recording on Bloomberg. Tom had read Top Producer and asked great questions. I hope you enjoy our conversation and discussion about the markets. Norb  Read More

Hello from the Oakland Airport. I've been on a Top Producer book tour, which almost feels like an IPO road show. Thank you for checking back. Yesterday, I was the guest of No Quarter Radio's Sense on Cents. Larry Doyle, the host, runs a terrific blog, where you can find a recording of our conversation. Larry worked on Wall Street for years, and we traded a number of stories dating back to...  Read More

Hello, BestThinking, As you know, I generally post articles about wealth management here. And I sometimes rely on the help of Grove O'Rourke, my fictional hero from the pages of Top Producer, to discuss the inner workings of Wall Street. For the next few weeks, I'm busy with a book tour that includes stops in Boston, Chicago, DC, Baltimore, San Francisco, Charleston, Fayetteville, and...  Read More

I'm in Australia at the Brisbane Writers Festival . Jane O'Hara, the Artistic Director, described the event in her kickoff speech as a "hum" of writers. Truer words were never spoken. Authors from across the world have gathered to discuss their craft, their subjects, the ideas that drive their passions. And it's a blast. Tomorrow, my wife and I are chairing a day-long session entitled "From...  Read More
Return to Main Blog Page to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
