 A quote from Bart - "After years of teaching, I am thrilled to be on Ken Zahn's team. His philosophy, content, and focus is just what I've been looking for as a veteran CFP­® Live Review Instructor. I try to keep my classes informed, engaged, and that order of priority. You will get a lot of references to sports, movies and rock n roll music (along with some corny jokes) in my classes though!" "Remember you've got soul, but you're not a soldier."
