“I used to rely heavily on financial advisors until I realized that most of them had no interest in growing my wealth and were only trying to sell their products to me. Given that, I was skeptical about taking the course. However, I took the chance to take it and I found that this course was the real deal. Not only Dr. Andrew Stotz was genuine with his teachings, but he also made the course easy for me to understand. This course is definitely a new outlook on how I view life.”
