Hey Jeremy, Thanks for the heads up for this new series. Did you go in for a casting call recently? How do you think it went?
You may have recalled a month or two ago when I mentioned there was a new finance series in the works and they were looking for people and families to feature on the show. Well, a few more details are out and you have just a few days left to throw your hat in the ring. This new series will take people who need a little help with their finances and pair them up with an expert to work with them. In a sense, you’d be working one-on-one and get some free financial advice.
The main reason I’m bringing this up is because I may be one of the experts featured on the show so it would be great if I was to end up working directly with one of my readers. Either way, you have until the 26th to send your information in. Here’s the information they gave me to share:
MSN.COM is seeking financially stable individuals and families who need extra guidance with their financial investments to star in their new series. Our Experts have the knowledge to teach you to take your investment skills to the next level.
Casting is just starting in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Portland, Denver, Miami, Omaha, and Dallas. Please send your submissions by March 26, 2010 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure to include:

My wife and I are DINKS, save a ton, don't own a house and only have some student loans for debt. Not much of a story for us :|
This is an interesting opportunity! Might have to wait for the second season though to see how this all turns out.
I think this is an awesome concept, but I'd like to see a bit of a monkey wrench dropped in the works, with some serious financial delinquents being shown the road to rehab. That will be more apt in today's economic climes ;-)
