What Students Are Saying

“Just when you think you cannot improve on perfection, Scott Reed just did! He has the ability to convey a mindset so you can start putting yourself in that mental frame in order to approach the task at hand. He is very much into, "JUST DO IT". With options, that's the way to go.”

“This program was presented very well by Sean. He connected with the class, explained the concepts, provided personal identification and application and made the subject come alive. The learning curve is steep but by listening to recorded sessions, reviewing materials and notes, I have gained the level of understanding needed to begin the journey of Proactive Investing.”
