CUSTOM
BENEFITS PLANS
FOR ALL 

Regardless of education or income, everyone deserves the opportunity to live a happy, healthy and successful life. Unfortunately, as it stands now, the majority of us are going to have difficulties obtaining our goals.

At the root of our problems are the institutions that work against us:  Our schools don't provide the "right" education for today's realities, and the companies we work for, our banks, Wall Street and the government -- all have the roles they play in the problems 99% of us encounter during our lives.

We provide Custom Benefit Plans through Schools, Churches/Temples, NPOs, Agencies and Businesses (they all have their own objectives as to why they let us in) to help individuals and families (i.e., owners, employees, contractors, spouses, children as well as the retired, veterans, and unemployed) build for their future.

Our programs provide safety, growth, protections and tax advantages that you cannot get from banks, 401k/403b/457 retirement plans, IRAs, SEPs, etc.

Our goal is to provide people with retirement plans where their money isn't subject to market loss, penalties on withdrawals or taxation when you need the money. Likewise, you are free to withdraw funds for emergencies, children's education, home ownership, vacations, etc.

It's your money. We just make sure it stays your money.

We don't sell anything. We are free to go to the company that has the best program to meet that person’s goals. When we present plans, we don’t charge the people that we help. If they like the plan, they pay the company direct and then we have the company compensate us out of future profits. After all, who can afford it more? The people that need our assistance or companies with deep pockets?

And for the organizations whose people we help? We charge them nothing for the work we do: Nothing to educate, zero to set-up, zero to administer.

And everything we do is custom.  Our Entrepreneurs Small Business Network provides accesss to multi-million, multi-billion dollar companies that have socially responsible services & programs. When we sit down to help people, everyone is not the same so we provide custom solutions.

GLOBAL
OUTREACH
PROGRAMS

The problems we face in our country are not confined to just our citizens. Regardless of your nationality, people all over the world face similar fundamental issues:  Health, financial well-being, quality of life issues.

Our book series will not just be translated into other languages because we have the answers for the rest of the world on these issues. With your help, we will be creating Board of Advisors comprised of experts and influencers from each country. The BOA are charged with the social responsibility of pulling together experts for inclusion in the books in order to make the information culturally relevant and expedient to the people.

Additionally, everything from our educational programs, workshops, work and entrepreneurship programs will be available in service to others.

Everyone Matters.

COMMUNITY
PARTNERSHIP
CENTERS

Starting in 2017, we are giving ordinary people (four per center)  the opportunity to be of service to their community by opening up a Community Partnership Center in their neighborhood.

This is a street level brick and mortar business where people  come and get the help they need regarding debt, education, health, income, legal, protections, insurance, retirement, savings, taxes, and work/career.

Through 16 Things Community Outreach programs, the CPCs work in conjunction with area schools, churches/temples, NPOs, Agencies and Businesses providing access to programs and services designed to actually help people.

The CPCs do not charge the people they help, (read the previous column: "Custom Benefits Plans"), instead they make large companies pay for the work we provide.

From set-up to start up, we provide all the training, licensing (when dealing with people's money, we are licensed and  government regulated) programs, materials and support services.

The time frame is 2-3 months of team training and outreach before the CPC opens.

ADULT WORK
& CAREER
PROGRAMS

One of the fundamental areas that people struggle with over their lifetimes is money. More specifically, finances. In keeping with our mission, we created several excellent programs that provide people with the opportunity to learn and earn a five- or six-figure income while helping educate and protect individuals and families on many important areas of their lives.

We provide free college and community based financial education workshops to teach people financial concepts they need to know in order to build effective retirement plans, educational funding plans, and estate preservation plans.

If you think you already know this information, it's still worth it to check out. We meet with CPA, CFP, CFAs, Owners, Businesspeople, Educators, MBAs, Lawyers, Accountants, etc. 95% don't know what we teach. 🙁

Our goal is to give everyone, regardless of education or income, the tools they need to become financially independent and achieve their goals and dreams. And that doesn't mean that you scrapped together $50K, $100K or even $300K: Our goal for you is to be able to live off the interest that your assets generate — so you never have to eat away at your principal and run out of money.

Most importantly, we make sure our client's hard-earned savings and investments are never at risk due to market loss or health issues (like chronic or long term care if qualified).

​This is a government regulated, licensed professional career position in the financial services industry -- However, no prior experience is necessary. All training is provided and you can earn while you learn. The only things you need to bring are your (1) desire to help people (2) determination to be successful and (3) a willingness to learn.
