Hi Bron,

I did the intro course to 5+7... at the time it wasn't too clear, but it was really a pre-5+7 session. I was really tempted to go further, there was a feeling of 'the answer' being just around the corner - but I figured that if they didn't come through on their promises re: the intro session, than there was little guarantee that they'd deliver on anything else.

I know of a few people who did 5+7, and others that went further... one went to the post-session interview with her parents, and feels that the three of them got snowballed into signing away $5000(?) each for the next step... another person has gone on to become part of the Strategic Management Works corp. in their own right.

Generally speaking people seem to emerge either strongly pro- or stronly anti-...

I've been looking around for seminars etc, but I'm a bit more cautious now. I've been doing my own reading/research through books, magazines, Motley Fool... and whatever else looks interesting. I've been planning to check out the Wednesday lunch talks organised by ASX, but haven't quite made it yet. Let me know if you come across anything interesting :)

I'm also keeping an eye out for an sydney based investment club that might be starting up (or for any like-minded people who might be interested in starting one)... any interested Fools out-there?
