Do you have an extra 100-200 bucks and a free afternoon? Then head on over to Charlotte for the chance to be in the exact same room as people who you admire, but have no reason to talk to you because, well, you're pretty much broke.

Relevant as Amway, and more entertaining than a bus stop. Sort of.
