* You're Fired!

Mr. M as we have previously discussed, your recent performance has been less than expected for someone in your position, with your experience.

I am always scouring the web looking for new ideas and concepts, and it seems that no matter what I use for my launching point, I end up on a Canadian financial/investing site.
