20 Seconds of fame on the National News from a blog post

rico-dilello

One of my blog posts that I wrote back in September of 2015, caught the attention of a T.V. producer at CBC News which is a division of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. On Feb 24th I received the following email:

Rico,
I`m a National TV News producer at the CBC and I just read your article “Why I quit being a financial Advisor” we are working on story about the trend away from “active investing” to more “passive investing” and think you might be a unique and interesting voice in our item. Can you give me a quick ring so we can have a chat?

I immediately gave him a call and answered some questions about my views on both active and passive investing. He asked if I was willing to be interviewed at my home which I agreed to but I wasn’t given a confirmed date.

To my surprise, I received a phone call while I was at an indoor golf driving range to do an interview. Not actually camera ready, but they were willing to send out a senior writer and cameraman to the driving range. They couldn’t wait because it was going to air the next day before the RRSP contribution deadline of March first. The producer was kind enough to send me a copy of the story.

Please reframe from making any comments on my golf swing! It has been three months since I swung a golf club.
