Way to go, Chuck!

Dear Charles Schwab,

I've seen several of your "Talk to Chuck" commercials recently. They made an impression on me; I've been thinking "Maybe I should talk to Chuck. I do have some money I could invest, and advice and help would be nice." You were totally winning me over.

Then tonight I saw a new commercial. It said "When I'm a hundred-thousandaire, why am I paying commissions like a multi-millionaire?... Talk to Chuck." Wow, did that make me feel inadequate!

I'm not a hundred-thousandaire. My net worth is currently in the negative tens of thousands, thanks to 2 very expensive degrees that I'm still paying for. However, I'm a 25 year old professional woman who will no doubt have more than $100000 to invest at some point in the not so very distant future. And I want to start investing now so I get that 100k sooner rather than later. If Chuck doesn't want to help me get that money, I'm going to have to find someone else who will. And if I get good help from someone else when I'm young, (relatively) poor and inexperienced, chances are I will stick with that person when I'm older, have more money and know a little more about how I want my money to be managed.

So, Chuck, explain to me why I would ever give you a second look tomorrow when you so nonchalantly dissed me today? Thanks for nothing Chuck; I thought you were different...
