Since 1994 I've worked with serious growth-oriented lenders who want to expand their financial knowledge and build a business that moves beyond traditional sources of Realtors, Builders, and existing client referrals.   I built a unique FAST System we patented that accelerated engagement with financial advisors - it assisted over $20B in financing through household names such as Ameriprise, Schwab, AIG, Merrill Lynch, and more.


How?  I'll teach you how to engage insurance agents, tax accountants, and financial advisors as their liability advisor.  Complete our proven training and education to earn you the Certified Liability Advisor™ (CLA) designation and with it,  access to our processes and education that will transform your existing business as we show you how to reposition what you do.


You'll find inspiring content, engaging experiences, and a fulfilling journey attending Borrow Smart University™.

 Don't worry, there's no risk. We offer free trip insurance.


To start your FAST journey:



The FAST System

We helped close over $3B in loan closings for a single financial advisory firm using our

FAST System and built a mortgage company that closed over $2B in retail loans working with accountants, insurance agents, and financial advisors.  We can help you profit from our experience.  Complete your CLA then monetize it directly...

The FAST System includes training, live coaching and turn-key content.

FAST Course:
