Maybe he just wants to spend his time doing something useful he enjoys doing. Of course, he isn't doing it for the money but unless he's a natural salesman he might be bored just attending conferences and so forth.
Personally, if money were no object I'd rather fly rescue choppers than chair meet...

| Money Talk|| I won at car buying - foshizzle on 2/24/15 at 10:22 pm|
I drove my previous car into the ground to the point where it was time to replace it.
Although I think I got a semi-reasonable price (thanks, Will Cover), the real reason I won is that the salesman left the dealership tag in the car when I drove it off the lot.

As others have already pointed out, balance transfers usually have a fee. The better way would be to get a card that does 0% APR for purchases for some amount of time. Use that for your purchases and just pay the minimums while you knock out the student loans.
Be aware this is not a risk-free met...

Across all fields of endeavor, not just in sports, generally speaking the greats of 20 years ago would not fare particularly well against the greats of today. They'd still be pretty decent, but no longer great. Of course it gets worse the further back you go.

Predictably, this has already gone several pages. Here's the deal:
Let's assume there are n doors. You pick one, the chance your choice is correct is 1/n.
Now Monty proceeds to open all the doors you didn't pick except for one. Monty knows which one has the car, and will never open that door.
