About Us


Our founders have been in the financial services industry for almost 90 years combined. During that time, they have witnessed a significant deterioration in training and mentoring and because of that deterioration, our industry has suffered a meaningful reduction in respect from both the public as well as professional advisors. Our goal is to provide training that our industry so sadly lacks and mentoring by some of the most successful people in the history of the financial services industry.
