Time: Customized 25-60 minute PowerPoint Presentation

This unique, original presentation addresses three simple questions:
  • What is the purpose of free enterprise?
  • Why do those intent on destroying free enterprise understand its purpose better than we do?
  • Why is there a Defect in the practice of free enterprise that has (1) destroyed the level playing field of free enterprise, (2) increased wealth disparity in the United States, (3) wasted 20 % of GNP annually, (4) converted America from a nation of wealth creators into a nation of wealth shifters, and (5) made a lottery out of the livelihood, life savings and freedom of ALL Americans?

The presentation answers these questions and concludes with an elegant, innovative 4-point agenda to resolve the problem.

Every American should hear this presentation before he uses the Defect to further destroy his children's freedom.  

II. So, You want to be a Millionaire (Teen Edition)

Audience: High School Classes and Individual Teens (Note: A 2 hour College Edition is also offered.)

Time: 2-1/2 hours  PowerPoint Presentation

Every teen should take this course before graduating from high school. Teens know how to buy consumer products; this course teaches them how to buy their economic freedom for as little as $3.36 a day.

Created for high school seniors and juniors, this 3 hour interactive PowerPoint seminar explains how the TEEN FACTOR™ can make 15-year-olds millionaires for only $3.36/day. Using a technique that Einstein called, "the most powerful force in the universe", this seminar teaches the three things that virtually any teen can do to ensure that s/he becomes a millionaire. When teens leave the seminar, they will have a road map in the form of the TEEN Millionaire Planner that they can discuss with their parents/grandparents to become millionaires.

High School teachers, Parents or teens interested in this program should contact Will through this website or in the Champaign, IL area, Bruce Henrikson, Department Chair, Business and Agri-industries at Parkland College. Full high school classes of approximately 30 per session are invited to attend on a first come-first served basis at Parkland College on select dates in the fall and spring semesters.

Student Attendee Comments:
"I didn’t know it would be that easy to be a millionaire."
"It opened my eyes to a lot more things than just people telling me I have to save and never telling me how."
"It wasn’t boring like other seminars I’ve been to. I actually learned something."
"You can make a million dollars without a perfect job or perfect grades."
"I learned you can be rich if you save. I learned a lot about stocks & portfolios. I decided I am going to be a millionaire."

Teacher Attendee Comments:
"Very informative and good for young people to know early."
"Step by step on how to save. Very easy presentation to follow.
"Student involvement was good. Teen level PowerPoint-colorful, catchy graphics, etc. Mr. Marshall put terminology/explanations on H.S. student level... Breaks/snacks of candy & sodas worked for kids!"
"Very informative from a different point of view..."

Guidance Counselor Attendee Comments:
"Very Valuable Info!"
"... this information should be required for every high school student. If so may(be) our whole economy could be made healthier. Consumer Ed in high school cannot cover this information adequately. By the time the students realize that they need to save, it is too late."
"Mr. Marshall explained the concepts of saving very well. This workshop is needed! In fact it ought to be mandatory for all graduating seniors."
"It made basic concepts of financial planning very understandable for high school students. The literature and graphics were excellent. Thank you!"


III. The B-A-D Baby Millionaire Seminar

Audience: Parents, Grandparents  and relatives of new babies and anyone with children under age 12.

Time: 1-1/2 hours (including discussion) PowerPoint Presentation

Suppose you could make your new baby a millionaire for a Buck-A-Day? Suppose you could make a child under twelve a millionaire for less than the price of a Latte-A-Day? In a one hour seminar parents and grandparents learn how to use what Einstein called, "the most powerful force in the universe" to make their child a millionaire. But as importantly, they will learn why they should want to do it, and how it affects their new baby's freedom in the future.  But there is another reason for doing this that adults need to think about.

The federal debt (not to mention the state, local and unfunded pension, Social security and ObamaCare) that we leave to those under age 25 is $190,000 per person ($20 trillion/105 million Americans under age 25). 50% of Americans pay no federal income tax, therefore, those who do inherit $380,000 of federal debt per person. Furthermore, each couple that eventually marries and pays federal income tax inherits $760,000 of debt from us. While individually, we sometimes feel impotent to do anything about the federal debt, we can do something to restore the economic freedom that they lose. Parents/grandparents can put a Buck-A-Day into a B-A-D Baby Millionaire account. If invested in a mutual fund earning 9% p.a. over the long run, the baby will have $1 million at age 65 to offset the higher taxes and inflation that s/he will inherit from us .

QUESTION: Is your child's/grandchild's economic freedom worth a Buck-A-Day?

Comment from a Grandparent: "Your calculations are VERY scary... and (I am) concerned that at least 51% of the country has NO clue of those facts and the ultimate impact." 


IV. How BOTH Managers and Shareowners Create Value for Shareowners

Audience: Corporate Officers, Directors, Shareowners and as a seminar within a capstone course at a business or graduate business school. Especially valuable as an on-site customized seminar for Corporate Officers to get different disciplines focused on what drives the growth of Enterprise Value and therefore, share price.

Time: Customized: 1-3 hour (including discussion) PowerPoint Presentation


Will explains how BOTH managers and Shareowners create value for Shareowners using the ideas in his book Rich Shareowner, Poor Shareowner™.

In plain English Will describes the three factors that cause stock prices to change, the five drivers of Shareowner Value that managers control, and a powerful technique that enables managers to manage high and low margin, high and low capital-intensive businesses side by side. In the process he identifies a corporate goal pyramid that creates a corporate culture which embraces change and the creation of Shareowner Value.

The ideas Will describes will be like the "second coming" of the quality process in terms of changing global business culture in the 21st century. It will reinvent the process of innovation in corporations.
