In 1996, an unprecedented decade-long courtroom battle was waged in Florida to help bring justice and hope to the family of a young boy born with no eyes after his mother was doused outside of a local u-pick farm by a chemical fungicide believed to have caused his birth defect and the birth defects of many other children.

The subject of "money' remains one of the most fascinating, thought provoking, emotional, polarizing, and well researched subjects in the world. Scores of books, articles, blog posts, and speeches have been written on what money is, how to earn it, how to spend it, who has it and who does not and a myriad of other topics related to the effects that it produces. Yet, despite the content focus and interest on the topic, there is one word that describes the average person's views around money: confusion. It seems that there is so much disinformation (what we might call "financial white noise") that most people either rely on chance for their fortunes they ignore the subject altogether. This is not only unnecessary, it is a tragedy because of the untapped human potential that is never uncovered when people leave their lives to chance or give up on their dreams. It's also totally unnecessary, because the topic of money - how to create it, how to invest it, and how to spend it wisely - is known. Truly there is a "science" of money, just as there is a science of nutrition, chemistry, and engineering.

In the past several years, there has been a great deal of hyperbole disseminated by mass media about "The Top 1%." Most of this press has been negative -- casting the 1% as the villains, and the 99% as the victims. Most every major problem in our society, and in individuals' inability to progress, has been blamed on this "elite" income class. Yet, the paradox is that the vast majority of people in America strive every day to become part of that 1%. Why is this? Because, most people intuitively understand that the picture of the 1% is largely incorrect at worst, or incomplete at the very least. So, is much of what we've been told about the 1% incorrect? Is there another reality about the 1% that has not been told by the media? And, should you and I aspire to be part of The Top 1%? The answers to these questions are an unqualified "YES." In this compelling program, personal development expert and researcher Dan Strutzel, will give you a completely new -- and ultimately inspiring view of this income class. And, best of all, he will outline the specific things you need to do to become a proud member of The Top 1%.
Here are just a few of the ideas that you'll learn:
After listening to this program, you'll not only have a road map for joining The Top 1%, you'll emerge more inspired and excited about your future and the future of our society.
