While earning a Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Scott developed a deep interest in investing through a stock market class he attended. He began investing personally and buying stock in a company he worked for. Since that inconsequential beginning over 20 years ago, investing in the market has changed dramatically.  He has witnessed these changes from many perspectives: beginning as an individual investor, eventually earning his Series 7 license at a major brokerage firm, and continuing to this day as an educator.

Scott’s career in continued education spans over 10 years and multiple companies.  He initially began teaching new investors about stock and basic option trading.  As technology grew, more investors looked to take charge of their investments, he began teaching more advanced option strategies and currency trading.

Scott brings a wealth of experience to learning investors and likes to present the pros and cons of an issue.  He especially enjoys working with novice investors and introducing them to the exciting world of options.  He loves helping investors grasp new concepts and then putting them in a position to apply that knowledge to take advantage of ever-changing market conditions.

EDUCATION & TRAINING: We provide non-traditional education and training. We do not sell a business opportunity, franchise business, or business in a box. As with any educational endeavor, a customer’s ability to achieve a particular objective is dependent on a variety of factors, including a customer’s prior experience, educational background, time, effort, commitment, and their ability to learn and apply the concepts taught. Because many of the factors above are beyond our control, we cannot guarantee specific results, including income. Customer's should evaluate their own situation, objectives, risk tolerance, and commitment prior to purchasing advanced education. We will never promise that you will make any money or that your desired results will be easy to achieve.

We offer no financial, retirement, tax, accounting, or legal advice. We are not a licensed dealer-broker, nor is our staff registered financial consultants. Prior to undertaking any investment transaction, you should consult your financial, tax, accounting, or legal advisor to evaluate your objectives, risks, consequences, and suitability of that transaction. We do not profit or earn commissions from any real estate or stock market transaction.

Acquiring additional lines of credit involve risk. Prior to acquiring additional lines of credit, the borrower should carefully consider whether a particular line of credit is appropriate for them, based upon their objectives, financial resources, and other relevant circumstances. Further, the borrower should closely evaluate the terms of the line of credit applying for (e.g., fees, interest rates, terms, obligations, etc.) The borrower of a line of credit should consult their own accounting and financial advisors prior to acquiring such lines of credit.

SURVEYS: We survey our customers after each interaction. As with all surveys, it is difficult to track and ascertain those who implement and complete the training provided. Survey results displayed were compiled over a 12-month period, and have been audited by a third-party. Some customers attend the training for education purposes only, but were included in satisfaction survey results. Some customers attend the training and do not apply the concepts taught, and therefore, do not make money.

ENDORSEMENTS: Any written or video endorsements featured in our marketing, training, and fulfillment are from our customers, many of whom purchased additional education. Nobody was paid for their opinion and each result and experience cannot be represented as typical. Your experience will vary.
