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.

Fred Anderson

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 investors!

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 management.

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 investment opportunities.

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.

Tom Tompkins

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 options.


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.
