Millions of dollars are being consistently earned on the stock market, and many of us stay away because it can appear to be confusing and intimidating. As a result, we remain economically stranded with the same struggle one generation after the next.
What if you had your very own inexpensive Finance Professor who could explain the stock market to a 4-year old child? What if he also cares deeply about your community, and possesses an internationally-recognized track record of helping millions of people just like you learn the fundamentals of building wealth?
If you're ready to learn how the stock market works, then Dr. Boyce Watkins is your man.
Dr Watkins is a world-leading financial expert who has taught millions on television, radio and in the classroom. His dissertation was written on stock market mechanics, and he has taught at The University of Kentucky, Indiana University, The Ohio State University, Syracuse University, and The University of Rochester. He has become an extraordinary resource for those seeking to understand the fundamentals of money, wealth, investing and everything in-between.

I love to learn. I love to teach.. I never presume that I know everything, since the key to knowledge is understanding how little you actually know. But my goal is to give information, insights and perspectives that allow you to broaden your thinking and to realize all that is possible.
