Ron Groenke
Ron Groenke Seminar

Investors have read the Groenke books and, in some cases, attended the Ron Groenke Seminars.

 

I have been using Ron’s VISIONS software and strategy for several years now, and am a believer that “slow and steady” does win the race. My monthly results have averaged out to be about twice the return of the S&P 500. I employ this strategy in several accounts and am seeing a monthly stream of income as a result. Even when negative news about a company results in downside movement in the stock, Ron’s strategy limits the loss, and even resulted in a few gains. I’d like to thank Ron for introducing me to the straightforward, low-risk method of generating income with the stock market. I highly recommend Show Me the Money to get you started making money on your portfolio.

In the past two years since I discovered Ron Groenke’s book, Show Me the Money: Covered Calls & Naked Puts for a Monthly Cash Income and his accompanying software [VISIONS], I have increased my investment income almost three-fold and virtually without risk. The investment marketplace is littered with thousands of books, newsletters, and software systems and I have bought and tried many of them. What Ron has done is cut through the clutter with a common sense approach to maximizing income through investment. I highly recommend this book.

My experience with Ron Groenke has been very positive. I picked up Ron’s book at Barnes & Noble a few months ago. It was well written and easy to read. Even though I consider myself an experienced investor as I was in the financial planning business for over 10 years, this was the first time I had heard of Ron’s concept of using Covered Calls and Naked Puts. The concept immediately made sense to me and I have implemented it with a good deal of success. His Visions software is a great compliment to the strategy. Not only has Ron come up with a great investment strategy, he is a very nice, honest man who is obviously passionate about his system.

As a Realtor for 40 years, (since retired) I’ve invested in every conceivable investment vehicle over the years. Ron’s Show Me the Money is the only book that shows you how to get paid up front, rather than having to wait for the market to go up or down. Ron’s formulas are straight forward, and the software does all the work. I love it!

In these times of increased uncertainty and greater volatility it is reassuring to know that, thanks to Ron through his books, seminars and software, we have the ability to make money regardless of what the stock market is doing. In his latest book Show Me the Money: Covered Calls & Naked Puts for a Monthly Cash Income he has distilled a complex subject into easy to understand tools and methodology for generating a regular income from stocks whether you own them or not.

My Name is Jackie Miller and I’m 79 years of age. I live in San Antonio, TX 78260. My A G Edwards stockbroker gave me Ron’s first book to read. I have been in the market off and on for 45 years. I just have done fair, but I never found a method I really liked till I got Ron’s Book Show Me the Money. It changed my way of investing.

I have bought 3 of Ron’s books including Show Me the Money: Covered Calls & Naked Puts for a Monthly Cash Income. I find them very informative and explain very easily how to trade Covered Calls for a very nice monthly income. I have attended several seminars, which provides me with additional insight to trading Ron’s methods. The software has been very helpful in finding potential trades. Since I have been using Ron’s methods I have put cash into my accounts each and every month, which I am compounding the income to do more trades. I am really glad I ran across Ron’s trading methods. Ron, keep the good work up!

I am very happy with the software and the book. I’ve been using the software for some time now with a high win ratio. These tools are a must have for any investor with little time and a conservative attitude.

I used another company’s investing software, and took their classes. However, I felt lost in how to really invest. I read Ron Groenke’s Show Me the Money book, and it was like a light went on. I actually had formulas to use and concepts I could understand. The seminar was great in it helped explain all of the software’s functionality. I wouldn’t use any other software.

I think Ron’s book, Show Me the Money, is the best Covered Calls book I have read. I have read many investment related books and I have attended several stock and options trading workshops and when I read Ron’s book, a light bulb really went off as far as writing options vs. buying options as a speculator. I also like his software [VISIONS] for its simplicity and ease of use. I hope to attend your workshop later this year when time permits. I have recommended Ron’s book to many friends too.

I read Show Me the Money a year ago and it really opened my eyes to a sector of the market that seemed obtuse and dangerous. Ron’s explanations and the Visions software have provided me a lot of help in managing a rather complex set of investments. Even though I am working with a full service broker, this book has furthered my ability to communicate effectively with the broker. Thanks very much.

Excellent presentation at the seminar. I strongly recommend Ron’s 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, “Ron’s methods really work.” 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.”

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.

I’ve been trading covered calls for over two decades. Since reading Ron’s book and using his system, I’ve 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 Ron’s 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 don’t 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.

DON’T buy Cash for Life UNLESS you want to make money trading stocks and options! Groenke’s 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; it’s 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 Ron’s 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 options.

L.K.

Cash for Life is a very readable introduction to these low-risk strategies for producing an income stream from one’s portfolio. The methodology is sound, well explained in the book and well implemented in the software. The book, the software, and Ron’s seminar are great values.

I have bought very expensive investment software but Ron’s VISIONS is the one I use. I just wish I had learned about VISIONS and the concepts in Cash for Life sooner. The VISIONS software is all that is needed for investing my money for retirement. I like the low risk and steady income aspect, whether the stock goes up or down. I started writing covered calls two weeks after reading the book and downloading the software.

I have been using Ron’s VISIONS software and strategy for about 6 months now, and am a believer that “slow and steady” does win the race. My monthly results have averaged out to be about twice the return of the S&P 500. I employ this strategy in several accounts and am seeing a monthly stream of income as a result. Even when negative news about a company results in downside movement in the stock, Ron’s strategy limits the loss, and even resulted in a few gains.

Many thanks to Ron and VISIONS software. He has shown me a solid way to improve my trading profits by 15 %.

Thanks Ron. This session of using computers was very beneficial to me. Being a hands-on person I have learned a lot more by actually pushing the buttons. I am leaving this session with the confidence that I can put Ron’s fabulous formulas to work. Ron has put together some great stuff and proves it by his own experiences. It is amazing to me that he has put this software together with his own skills. VISIONS’ easy access to information will be very helpful in my other trading practices as well. Thanks again.

I started an investment plan using the Cash for Life concepts in Nov. ’05. It has generated cash every month. I also recommend using VISIONS software because it does all the heavy lifting in evaluating the “Time to act winners.”

I have been trading—albeit not always covered calls—for more than twenty years. Ron’s method, described in his latest book, Cash for Life, is one of—if not the—most understandable and easy to follow trading method that I have seen. Every concept is described in easily understandable language and each step detailed in easy to implement order. I have been using Ron’s method for over two years and have had much more success with it than any other search engine. Compared with other covered call search engines costing far more (and I have used them) the VISIONS software is the most powerful in my opinion and it is a great time saver.

Stan Graham

I have purchased multiple copies of Ron Groenke’s first two books, The Money Tree and Covered Calls and Naked Puts. I have given them as gifts to friends because I believe the strategies Ron teaches can lead to financial freedom. The VISIONS software is a powerful tool for locating stocks that are perfect for covered calls and naked puts. I highly recommend Cash for Life and VISIONS software!

Ron’s software and book can teach you how to plant your own money tree, which is even better than a nest egg, because trees keep on growing long after the egg has been scrambled.

I have read innumerable books regarding the market. Of the dozens of books I have studied, I personally feel that Cash for Life is the best written and most useful text I have employed in my trades over the last 10 years. I have used the Visions Software on a monthly basis to assist in picking my covered calls and naked puts candidates. Of all the trades I have made while using this software, I have only lost money on one trade! Amazing! I would like to thank you for all the help your publications have given me in continuing my development as a successful trader!
