How This Came To Be…

It all started with our existing students, their stories, and need for the information to succeed. While many wanted us to take our live training on the road we couldn’t be at every location on a regular basis. We had to find a way to duplicate our student’s success another way.

Here’s what we did… 

  • We’ve set up an online based video training to make learning smooth and easy
  • We took all of Bill’s collective SSPC-PA 2 knowledge and packed it into a simple-to-use format
  • We broke down the complicated math in a way that’s understandable & makes sense

You get Instant Access to the entire course through our secure membership area immediately upon purchase.

FREE BONUS INCLUDED: SSPC-PA 2 Challenge: workbook
