Excellent presentation at the seminar. I strongly recommend Ronís book,
Cash for Life and VISIONS software. They are essential for finding solid
stocks and profitable options.
Cash for Life is the book that, as a finance professor, I wish that I had
written. Ron presents a methodology of capital market trading in a
readable, understandable, and achievable manner. I have both presented
his technique in the classroom and have adopted it personally. Simply
stated, ďRonís methods really work.Ē Thank you, Ron.

Ron Groenke patiently and in a down-to-earth manner explains very
complex subject matter, namely selling stock options for conservative
investors in his book Cash for Life and seminars. His VISIONS software
is brilliant in making it easier to select particular stocks and options, and
he is continuously updating it.

In writing Cash for Life Ronald Groenke has taken the road less traveled
and produced a very practical guide to the conservative elements of
options trading, and has done so in an easy to read and entertaining
style. His story approach to the material removes the intimidation
usually found in books on options trading. Cash for Life is a book I can
comfortably recommend to my friends who are average investors. They
will understand the material and will discover a relatively low-risk way
of making money in the stock market, and may even find that they have
made some new imaginary friends through the characters used in telling
the option story.

I highly recommend Cash for Life by Ronald Groenke. It is an excellent
supplemental text for finance couses. The book does a fine job of
illustrating how writing options can be used to enhance the returns on a
common stock portfolio. The real world context in which the story unfolds
is a critical advantage, allowing students to observe a derivatives strategy
in a practical application.

In his book Cash for Life Ron does an excellent job of showing a simple
but effective way to trade covered calls. I just love his approach for this
reason: It is a simple, easy to learn and conservative approach that I can
trade in my IRA account. The companion software, VISIONS, is easy to
navigate and does 95 % of the work for me. Like Ron says . . . You make
money by selling--not by buying.Ē

Excellent overall course. Appreciate amount of time put in to
software. These ideas have worked for me for years. VISIONS
software keeps it better organized and makes finding prospects
easier. I highly recommend Cash for Life.
Iíve been trading covered calls for over two decades. Since reading
Ronís book and using his system, Iíve been placing more trades
and getting a better return. As an engineer, I always search for the
easiest, most effective method in whatever I undertake and Ronís
system is elegant in its simplicity. I highly recommend Cash for Life
and VISIONS software.
Ron has solved many of the problems we face as investors but
donít have the time or knowledge to solve for ourselves. I highly
recommend Cash for Life and especially the seminar for all levels of

As a finance professor, I am always looking for books that can
bridge the gap between academics and practice. Ronald Groenke
has written a practical book that does a great job of uncovering
the myths about options investing and making it appealing to an
individual investor. Most other books do a cursory job of covered calls
or just show the profit and loss diagram, leaving it to the reader to
figure out the rest. This book takes that concept and applies it using
real-world stocks and options, taking the reader through the various
possible states that he may encounter by taking the position. It is a
clearly written book that does not leave any unanswered question. I
strongly recommend the book as a supplemental text in financial risk

Cash for Life is an excellent book that puts in a very enjoyable
and readable format the beauty of the options market as part of a
complete investment strategy. I highly recommend the book as an
interesting and practical explanation of the options market for both
the novice and the experienced investor who wishes to broaden their

DONíT buy Cash for Life UNLESS you want to make money trading
stocks and options! Groenkeís basic philosophy of making small
gains consistently is the name of the game. Slow and steady wins
the race! And VISIONS software makes it easy to find the right
stocks and options. Do yourself a favor: Buy Cash for Life, follow
its principles; watch your account balance grow dramatically in
only a few months. I use the book as the primary text in a Financial
Freedom class I teach; itís terrific and my students love it!

Ron has developed a conservative approach to using options to
increase your gains. His approach is based on years of experience in
trading covered calls and the use of naked puts to enhance returns.
I have read a large number of investment books and Ronís methods
are the best that I have seen for a practical approach to success in
the stock market. I highly recommend Cash for Life.
I have found Cash for Life to be the most complete and easily
understandable book on covered calls. Combine that with VISIONS
software and one has a comprehensive strategy to make money with
Cash for Life is a very readable introduction to these low-risk
strategies for producing an income stream from oneís portfolio.
The methodology is sound, well explained in the book and well
implemented in the software. The book, the software, and Ronís
seminar are great values.
