About Donald

Hello Friends,

My purpose is to simply empower people to make their own financial investment decisions.

I have invested for over 18 years. I have a Finance Degree from Texas Tech University. I have over 10 years professional experience in Securities Brokerages, Insurance, and Retirement Plans. I also have my Series 7, Series, 66, Series 63 and Group 1 Insurance Licenses.

Options when it comes to investing:

You can pay an advisor to help you. This is very costly and they might not have your best interest in mind. Invest on your own. Without knowledge, this should never be done. You could lose your life savings by selecting the wrong order type.
Not invest. This is almost as bad as investing without knowledge because you put a serious obstacle between you and your goals.

Or,

You can invest on your own with the knowledge of a professional. Let me help you.

"Give a man a fish, feed him for a day, Teach a man to fish, feed him for life."

Please check out my other subjects as well. I am able to teach a number of subjects.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
