  4. Its all about chasing shadows.
    By that I mean latching on to this or that latest,
    most innovative idea that some self styled money making
    guru has put out in the hope it’ll go viral and make them
    a lot of money off the backs of all the headless chickens
    who will follow them blindly down a blind alley. Its a shame
    but a truism nonetheless that people will follow where someone
    they see as an expert leads. Even if they lead them to certain
    disaster, which is what most of the gurus tend to do to their flocks.
    The trick is to recognize a shadow when you see it!

Any offer of 'tickets at cost' is exactly that -- I have season tickets and will sell them for what I paid --- so no mark-ups.
