Jason Bond

Jason graduated in 2001 with a Masters in Education and began to teach in NYS public schools. After ten years of teaching, he was unable to gain any traction financially as he accumulated over $250,000 in debt due to a mortgage, student loans and credit cards. Knowing that something needed to change, he took it upon himself to become an entrepreneur and forge a new path for his life. He quickly discovered that in addition to being an exceptional teacher he was also a gifted stock trader. was born shortly after this and it did not take long to become one of the top stock advisory services in the world. In the years that followed, he taught tens of thousands of paying members his trading techniques. The companies he has helped build since then have grossed tens of millions of dollars in the process.

Today, Jason resides in New Hampshire with his wife Pamela where they are raising their son, Noah. He lives completely debt free and enjoys a slower pace of life than what he once knew in New York. He has made it a mission in his life to helping others achieve the success they have dreamed of.

Ben Sturgill

Ben Sturgill

Ben has been passionate about three things since his teenage years: faith, people, and business. After playing Division 1 college basketball, Ben graduated in 2005 with a Masters in The Arts of Teaching and went overseas for three seasons to play professionally. After returning to the States, he worked in sales and marketing and started a software company on the side. After a few years in the marketplace, he be entered full-time ministry with college athletes where he has served to this day. Since then he has also graduated from seminary, all while starting a real estate company and a photobooth company. Both are now run with the help of some amazing partners.

Throughout this journey, Ben has learned that he loves to teach, coach, and help others grow and develop–specifically to develop an understanding of who God is, who he made them to be, and how they fully live that out. He also learned that he is better at taking things that already exist and making them better than he is at starting completely from scratch.

Ben resides in New Hampshire with his wife Shannon where they are raising their three sons, Jackson, Cooper, and Tyler. When he’s not working with people, helping them and/or their businesses grow, he loves spending time with his family and playing sports with his boys.
