Doug West - Reporter (The Opportunity Investigator), Financial Instructor, Coach, Entrepreneur & Unconventional Thinker

Doug West is an investment expert who has trained thousands of people to use simple strategies to build financial health and wealth. West has uncovered the fallacies of conventional financial advice, and has been featured in numerous financial magazines.

While working as an electronic technician for AT&T (a job he was laid off from after 10 years when AT&T moved it to Mexico) Doug discovered the typical problems people face when trying to take advantage of retirement planning, 401k, 403b, etc. Your audience will enjoy the examples he gives of company retirement planners who know very little about what they are offering employees, and why folks should avoid their advice at all cost!

Plain-Talking Oklahoman Cuts Through the Gibberish and Reveals How to Make Money Now

Companies are going under, investments are up in smoke, and you’re wondering, “What do I do now?” Money expert Doug West has a solid, proven technique -- that doesn’t require a fancy degree to understand – that has actually made his investments steadily climb, while nearly everyone else’s have tanked.

On your show, West will reveal this must-know moneymaking strategy, using everyday language and clear-cut examples. He’ll unravel the gobbledygook, and explain why stockbrokers often rely on mind-numbing terminology to confound their clients and line their own pockets. West will explain everything your listeners need to know to rebuild their portfolios when he discusses:

  • Why stock tips are a bad idea, and why talking heads are most often wrong when they say to invest for the “long term.”
  • How to create wealth – tax free.
  • How you can save thousands on your home mortgage – without refinancing.
  • Why it’s crucial (and easier than you think) to have multiple income streams.
  • The unexpected truths about the Federal Reserve, Wall Street, and common, dead-wrong financial advice.
  • How To Deal With Job Loss Doug was laid off from AT&T (in 1992) after nearly 10 years when his job was sent to Mexico. He found himself in rural Oklahoma with no job prospects. His success story will entertain and inform your audience/readers.

Doug West worked several years as a retirement planner in the Oklahoma schools working with teachers and other employees. He has been a top sales agent for several companies and has been interviewed in several magazines, publications (including Entrepreneur Digest, SFI, Home Business, Spare Time and others), and radio.

As a writer and reporter West has interviewed such stars as Garth Brooks (who shared some excellent points on success), Miss Oklahoma, Jody Miller and many other Oklahoma celebrities.

Personal Financial Education is Our Pet Peeve!

We Think Nearly Everyone Needs It

Just look at what these reports say about traditional education in America:

"Most people who enroll in a university look forward to earning a degree that will open doors for them to well-paying and secure jobs. Government reports show, however, that only about one quarter of those who go to college earn a degree within six years a dismal success rate. Even so, does that degree translate into a good job? Note what current research and studies have to say. Going to Harvard or Duke [universities] won't automatically produce a better job and higher pay. . . . Companies don't know much about young employment candidates. A shiny credential (an Ivy League degree) may impress. But after that, what people can or can't do counts for more.

Newsweek, November 1, 1999.

Most colleges are seriously out of step with the real world in getting students ready to become workers in the postcollege world. Vocational schools . . . are seeing a mini-boom. Their enrollment grew 48% from 1996 to 2000. . .. Meanwhile, those expensive, time-sucking college diplomas have become worth less than ever.

Time, January 24, 2005.

Projections from the U.S. Department of Labor through 2005 paint the chilling scenario that at least one-third of all four-year college graduates will not find employment that matches their degrees.

The Futurist, July/August 2000. 

In view of all of this, more and more educators are seriously doubting the value of higher education today. We are educating people for the wrong futures, laments the Futurist report.

Your Listeners Need the information Doug West can offer them. And he will do it in an entertaining format that will be fun for all involved!

Doug Comes in 5th Place

In the shot above you will see the results of a PFG contest Doug entered on November 30, 2005. There were hundreds of contestants trading the E-mini S&P. As  you can see, Doug came in 5th using his unconventional style. Not bad considering that he had to quit trading 2 and 1/2 hours before the closing bell. He feels like he could have won the contest if he would have had the whole day to trade! 

You can see in the image on the right that Doug was set up in the contest with number D1040.
