My husband and I are within ten years of retirement. We realized we didn't know how to retire, or how to manage our investments to carry us through retirement.

We attended one of Sean's courses at Fresno State and now have a much better plan in place. We have learned a lot about when to retire, and how our money can work for us.

Sean is a great teacher and we absolutely love working with the staff. You will too! -Catherine G.


Thank you Sean and your team, for always being up-front, transparent, and honest regarding our life savings/nest-egg. With all the current craziness, I feel we are Blessed to have you guys watching after our future!  -Blair R.


Throughout my 40 year career in a single industry, I needed to be able to excel in many business/management disciplines. Finance was not one of them. Until I met Sean, I had no idea I was able to retire. He showed me how I can retire and live a comfortable life. A year later, I am pleased to find that he was right, and my wife and I are comfortably and happily retired, and have the confidence in our future.  -Dan W.


I want to thank all of you for your hard work putting this together for me. If I'm being honest, I was a bit anxious going through this process.  Now that it's done I feel I could not have made a better choice for my financial future.  You make a great team, and I appreciate all that you've done for me.  -Tracy M.


Thank you Sean! I appreciate all the hard work you and your team do for me.  -Rod T.
