Sleep took priority over my blog this morning. I got home about 1:30 this morning, returning from the National Money Show in Phoenix.
I was not particularly late. However, at that hour of the morning every extra minute seems to be worth at least two or three.
To cover the Krause table until 2 p.m. and then to fly east means a late arrival home no matter what. Had everything gone exactly right, I could not have made it any earlier than 12:30 a.m.
So I slept two hours later than usual this morning.
What do I think of the goings on in Phoenix?
Well, ANA has a new executive direct in Larry Shepherd. Reaction seems very favorable, but it is possible to find one or two dissenters from the majority opinion.
The public showed up in force. Many dealers commented on it. Business in general was considered a bit slow. Some blamed the heavy schedule of Las Vegas, Long Beach, Baltimore and then Phoenix on consecutive weekends. Some dealers just didn’t make it to Phoenix as a result. The Tennessee state show kept others away and snowstorms did the rest.
Platinum took a header and gold didn’t make it through $1,000, so that prompted a little bit of caution.
I did 12 radio interviews for our new CoinChat Radio, which is set to air for the first time on Friday. Perhaps “air” is an archaic term. It is going out online. I hope you get a chance to listen to it.
I am sure you will see more about it elsewhere on the Web site.
That’s it for now.
