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.

In an effort to continually improve the customer experience, we survey our customers often. Nevertheless, it is difficult to track and ascertain those who implement and complete the training.

Testimonials and reviews are individual experiences and personal opinions of those who have purchased education and training. Individual results will vary, and testimonials and/or reviews may not be typical. Results rely on individual effort, time, and skill of each customer, as well as market conditions and other factors. The Company is unable to track whether a customer applies the training or how much money a customer earns. However, it is assumed that most customers do not apply the needed effort and time, or do not acquire the skills, to complete transactions successfully and, therefore, most clients do not make money.
