Show Business

By -

I’ve had my own show on the tastytrade financial network ever since they started (I don’t remember how many years ago). However, I’ve never done one of their live events. There are a lot of reasons for this, but a big one is that I’m not really into business travel. However, they planned a show in California, and they were kind enough to invite me, so we’ll be broadcasting live all day Monday from the venue (Avalon Hollywood) shown below. I’ll keep everyone posted on how it goes!

Subtract. Ad.

By -

After due consideration, I am happy to announce that I have eliminated advertisements on the Slope of Hope. There are a few reasons behind this:

  1. This is a subscription-supported site. I want to focus on developing new products and features for my subscribers to the exclusion of almost everything else;
  2. Since I am a Diamond member, I never saw the ads, but on the rare occasions I would log off and see what non-premium members saw, I found the ads running to be aesthetically displeasing. Simply stated, they made Slope look ugly, which I don’t want.
  3. When you’re on Slope, I want you focused on Slope, not an ointment.
