EBK Day 3: “All Aboard the Empire Builder”

empire builder

Last night J.D. Roth, Alexandra Levit, Adam Baker, and I spent time with the Chicago edition of the small army. Big thanks to everyone who came out to say hi!

Thanks as well to everyone who has been supporting J.D.’s launch of Your Money: The Missing Manual. It really is a great resource, as long as you ignore the non-conformist guy profiled in Chapter One. J.D. works hard on everything he does, and I’ve learned a lot from him.


At 2pm this afternoon we’ll embark on the Empire Builder train and start heading west. Two important notes in the meantime:

The launch really is 24 hours only! I’ve received numerous notes from people asking me why it won’t be available after the first day. The reason is because the first group will get a private webinar three weeks later where I personally answer every question they have about empire-building (“no question left behind”). I don’t want anyone to be misled—I’ll open it up again later, but without the private webinar, and I also reserve the right to raise the price.

My life depends on WiFi access. For those interested in the launch, I’m planning to kick it off tomorrow morning around 10am EST / 7am PST 2pm GMT. The only hitch is that I’m completely dependent on internet access to make this work, and we’ll be riding the rails for the entire journey. If something goes wrong, keep checking back and know that I’ll be a lot more frustrated than anyone else. If you don’t see a post up here, head over to

Alright, we’re heading over to Union Station! Thanks again, Chicago. Thanks again, readers from everywhere.
