“Loren took the time to ensure that we all understood a topic before moving on to the next topic. He kept the class engaged by asking questions and at times putting each of us on the spot. He had many stories that were not only entertaining but also filled with useful lessons. I feel with his instruction and more simulation, I will have a secure grasp of Options.”
