Anyone have success in getting through via telephone? I tried multiple times throughout the day to no avail. (Not complaining to you, FMF, I'm just curious if someone, anyone was able to benefit from this service.)

I got through at about 11:45 a.m. It took me three tries over a 15 minute period; the key was that even though the message says to "try again later", if you stayed on the line, a CFP did come on.

I actually had a great session, longer and more detailed than I expected. (I tried the Jumpstart event two years ago and had a horribly dismissive and rude CFP who basically told me that unless I changed my entire rate structure (his specific suggestion were ridiculous and not based in an understanding of my profession or geographic area's economy), my financial future was doomed. Yesterday's guy, however, asked great, probing questions, had realistic answers and suggestions, recommended particular books to read and actions to take, and was all-around swell. He did some calculations to figure out my best options, and found great options and alternatives.

As with CFPs out in the real world, I guess, our mileage may vary. :-)
