    "When you leave the office, you are done and you have a weekend all to yourself. I unfortunately do not have that freedom. I eat, live, and breathe this company every minute of the day, every day of the week. There is no rest. There is no weekend. There is no happy hour."

    Er hello! Of course you are fixated with your company, you own it. They don't. What a dick.

    Sounds like hell on earth. Even when I owned my own company - which was very successful, thank you - I never let my company own me.

    This guys should get a life.

    When there is a story that is in my back yard, I have to comment on it.....

    1. This guy isn't one of Orlando's most beloved citizens. He has few friends and legions of enemies. The company I work for is one of Westgate's biggest competitors and the Westgate brand is one held in disgust among those in the industry and within their owner family.

    2. The house remains unfinished and there is a new price reduction. Down to 65M from 75M and that is "as is," meaning completely unfinished. This house is so massive that it does not fit in with those in the neighborhood--and this is Orlando's primo address here, the Butler Chain of Lakes in Windermere.

    Well honestly, I love the stained glass windows and the home has the potential to be beautiful. I would love to see the entire floor plan. I mean, what do you do with 90,000 square feet? I think it would have been fun to design the outside to look more like a castle.

    This is the guy who made lots of money selling holiday appartment shares to suckers all over the world and then lost it when people wised up and the markets crashed.

    Who cares what he thinks?

    What a loser.

    Perhaps this looser will promise to flee the country when President Obama is re-elected?
