I had to respond back to this email. You have been the only instructor who has explained TSP in a way that I could gather all the information and not feel overwhelmed afterwards or leave feeling like I am still confused. Your enthusiasm was great. I am one who only invested in the G fund, but after your class I feel more comfortable utilizing the other funds even if it’s a small percentage. Thank you for coming by PBGC.

Stephen, Your presentation was wonderful. I most certainly got a lot of 'bang for the buck" and I very much appreciate everything you shared with our group. When I came home, I mentioned some of the topics with my husband and told him that I want to get all of my personal documents in order to better prepare for my retirement. I look forward to receiving and reading your articles."

I have attended several courses on ‘financial planning’ but I am happy to declare you are the best instructor, a real knowledgeable person and one who speaks the truth. I learned several new ideas from your lecture."

Stephen, I truly was engaged in thinking through the different scenarios you provided including the one on how the money should be invested between a TSP and Taxable Account. I appreciate your thoughtful comments earlier. I must admit I was going into the seminar as a skeptic based on historical presentations I've attended in this area, and to my surprise, your presentation was refreshing. Thanks!

Good morning Stephen. I enjoyed your retirement planning seminar this week and I plan to encourage many of my co-workers to attend the next one. I've attended many seminars over the years and yours definitely tops the list. Keep up the great work!

“Stephen, You did a great job yesterday with your presentation and I am not easily impressed, especially with financial management presenters. I pride myself on being a good judge of character and you have good character, as well as a keen ability to get people to listen to what you have to say. You got my attention and kept it during your entire 2 hour presentation. Because of that, I will keep in touch and look forward to your email articles. All the best to you and your family.”

“Stephen, Your last class helped me prepare and optimize my benefits. I feel like I have a decent handle on things and I am retiring at the end of the month. The information you provided is very useful and I would bet people will be interested, so I will pass it on.”

Hi Stephen, The TSP Seminar was very well received by staff. I can truly say, it was the best TSP training that I have experienced.
