Earl Bronsteen's 2010 New Year's resolution was to eat 50 free lunches at financial seminars. In addition to attending those seminars and dining for free, he wrote a satirical book about his meals entitled "The Adventures of a Free Lunch Junkie."
Out of all of the free seminars that he attended, only one spurred Bronsteen to action outside of eating the free lunch. After attending a seminar on health care, Bronsteen took out a long-term care policy for his wife. He notes that this purchase made sense because he and his wife are seniors and health care is so expensive.
