CFP and President
AJ Feldman Financial

His background in the financial industry began when he was a teenager interning for his family’s specialist and market-making firm on the floor of The Chicago Stock Exchange. During this time he was able to learn about trading and market products. In 1993, he witnessed the first major Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) debut, the SPDR S&P 500 Index Fund (SPY). Although there was not much initial volume and interest in this product, the specialists and market-makers knew this was the beginning of something special. It was not until 1999 when the second major ETF premiered, the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ), that the trading community really embraced these funds. In 2000, this fund was the most actively traded security in the United States.
After graduating from Indiana University with a business certificate from the Kelley School of Business and a degree in Philosophy, Andrew put his knowledge, training and experience to work with Treasury Equity, LLC. As a consultant to Treasury Equity, Andrew assiste(Show Full Bio)d in producing marketing materials, SEC filings and patent applications to bring new Currency Exchange Traded Funds to market.

Nancy Paul

Owner, President
Three Wishes College Strategies

Nancy Paul is a speaker, consultant, seminar leader, and best-selling author who inspires audiences to combat skyrocketing college costs and empower students with “skin in the game.” She also volunteers as a merit scholarship judge for UCLA.

With three daughters in three years, Nancy spent 100’s of hours mastering how her family could lower the cost of college with merit scholarships and other strategies that did not involve need-based aid or financial products.

Together, her daughters were awarded $600,000 in merit scholarships –money for college based on achievement. Those victories lead to benefits that the family could not have imagined.
She is passionate about educating families to create more options for how much they spend on college. Nancy says:
“We must take control over skyrocketing college costs, advocate for parents’ rights to know how to pay less for college, empower our kids to use their achievements to lower the cost of college, and combat the $(Show Full Bio)1.3 trillion in college student at a time.”
Nancy is out-spoken about the short-comings in current college planning that is contributing to crippling college debt. She believes that most high school and private college counselors do families a huge disservice not to include cost as a factor in determining “best fit” schools.
The Little Book about Scholarships has been praised by college counselors, parents and students for its simplicity and usefulness. The resource provides a crash course in merit scholarships.

Nancy shares her signature W.I.S.H.E.S. system with families nationwide through seminars, group programs, home study courses, videos and articles. Her programs include Pay Less for College Boot Camps and The College Treasure Chest self-paced course.

She is known for being engaging, knowledgeable, and motivating on topics related to empowering teens with the college process so they get into more colleges, pay less, and maximize their potential.

Previously, Nancy was a public relations executive in the entertainment industry. Her specialty was uniting celebrities with high-profile public service programs, including collaborations with The White House, The U.S. Olympic Hockey Team, and The United States Post Office.
