What a lovely surprise!
Check out THIS VIDEO from one of my former options students!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I thank you for the excellent one-on-one lesson I just finished with you. Prior to now, I thought I knew it all - more so that I had spent a lot of money on options educations with other trainers and companies. You proved me wrong through your superb, down-to-earth, step-by-step options training. You are indeed a teacher.
You know this stuff and you have much to offer your students! I have never seen such genuineness and thoroughness anywhere else. You never cut corners and you explained the arithmetic part of this stuff like no one else, making you the best out there. I also want to thank you for your patience. I wish others would see and experience what I know about you and your training program.
Oh, Lilia, you are the best. Thank you so much. I am more confident now to call myself a trader.
"I thought I had a good handle on options trading and the various strategies, that was until I took Lilia's "Selling PUT Options" class. Lilia, Options Trading Coach, has the ability to clearly and concisely break down each step of various selling PUT Option strategies to the point that I now have absolute clarity and confidence in each strategy.
I now know what each PUT selling strategy is attempting to accomplish, when to place trades for the best outcome, and understand the BEST way to trade options that have the highest probability of making a profit. I had many "Ah Ha" moments that have helped me immensely in my approach to placing trades, trading psychology, and creating a trading plan.
I understand the risks on certain strategies and how to fix certain broken trades for a profit. A whole new world has opened up to me. The recorded sessions are incredibly useful and a gold mine of information. The homework and exercises are a great way to reinforce what you are learning.
It is true what is said about investing in your education. You can either learn the hard way and go it alone, or, have someone that is successful teach you what they know so you can model their success in a fraction of the time.
If a trade went bad on me, I now know exactly why it went bad, how to reduce the risk, how I could possibly fix it, and what to do next time. Prior to Lilia's class, I had no idea of the risks I was talking, why trades were going bad, and leaving money on the table with a fixable trade.
Lilia is such a patient and kind person who took the time to make sure I completely understood what was being taught with repetition of the material with many examples, scenarios and various outcomes.
My advice to "anyone" who wants to trade options: do not place a single trade until you have taken Lilia's class. You will save yourself a lot of frustration and money.
"I am happy to recommend Lilia as an options coach.
Lilia is a great teacher - patient and thorough. She makes sure her students understand simpler concepts before proceeding to more complex ones. Her methods encourage caution, taking profits and not being greedy.
Her style of teaching is very effective and, as a student, you can really feel the benefit of her experience.
I have taken other investment classes but have never learned anywhere near as much as I did in Lilia's classes.
Her fees are very reasonable for what you learn and I can recommend Lilia highly for anyone interested in learning about options."
Just like to say one more time, thank you so much for all your time. I really really learned a lot from you and I am very happy.
As I said, I have been telling my friends about you and hopefully they'll call you and learn and have some knowledge about options.
You teach with patience and fun. I wish my class never ended. I would be so excited the whole week and studied a lot for those two hours of class.
It was so amusing that you teach all your 20 - 30 years of experience in just 12 hours. It is fantastic.
Every day in my car to work and to home and in my work, I listen and watch our videos and practice and also enjoy.
Thanks a lottttttt."
"Lilia, I want to thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for sharing your knowledge on Put options a few weeks ago. You are so knowledgeable and have a lot of patience when coaching.
I don't hesitate referring you to anyone who wants to learn how to invest. I had never invested before, but I am proud to say I can now sell puts from the coaching and education you gave me.
Even when at times it was so hard to understand some simple math, you took me back to the simplest examples until I got the concept.
I have to say, I found myself a Mentor in you that I can trust in helping me with any investment education and consultation.
Thank you so much, Lilia, and continue doing the great work of educating people."
"Hello, Lilia. Thank you so much for being my options mentor. I am a lot further along in my options trading learning than I ever thought I would be.
You replaced my fear and confusion with real usable knowledge and skill.
I greatly appreciate your teaching style and approach. It was extremely effective for the way I learn.
I look forward to connecting with you in the future.
Best wishes and deepest gratitude from the bottom of my heart!"
"It is my pleasure to write this recommendation on behalf of Lilia.
I enjoyed very much her pleasant, not-pressured way to teach. As the teaching experience reached its end, I had gained a friend. She always demonstrated a genuine interest in my learning, was never rushing to reach the end of our sessions.
I finished my classes with her but it is comforting to know that I can schedule additional, occasional lessons to polish my skills in trading options whenever I want.
If you are looking for an options teacher who is careful and wants your success, someone who understands that your success is her success, someone who is meticulous and determined to place winning trades, you found in Lilia that teacher.
I recommend Lilia as a great options teacher, with no reservations."
"The session I had with Lilia was amazing!
Lilia is extremely knowledgeable about options trading. She took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered in a way that was easily understandable by showing recent examples and quizzing me at every corner to ensure I was understanding the concepts we were discussing.
After having visited with Lilia, my confidence is 'through the roof' and I'm even more excited about my journey into the options trading world!
Everyone could benefit from Lilia's lessons!
I'm going to begin trading options soon and I'll approach my transactions with so much more confidence because of Lilia! THANK YOU!!"
"I really wanted to show my appreciation for the way you offer the [one-on-one] course; you go through the lessons and the detailed explanations.
From all the personal coaches I have been taking, I will rate your approach 10 out of 10, 10 being the best.
From these coaching sessions, I really felt that your coaching made a huge difference in my approach to options and increased my confidence in trading.
I will not hesitate to recommend your coaching.
Thank you for your time and patience in coaching me and I am looking forward to taking the next course."
"I wanted to thank you again because, with your help, not only have I recovered the losses I experienced before I took your course, but I am now generating extra monthly income. Thank you, Lilia."
"I love your teaching style. You teach at a pace that I can understand easily."
"I can't recommend Lilia and her financial classes enough. She's fabulous! She's caring, thorough and supportive. She really knows her stuff: long-term and short-term investing and how the markets work. I made $6,000 in one day using an Options Earnings strategy I learned in her class.
I first met Lilia through the local adult school. She was teaching three levels of finance classes. I learned all about the Dow Jones, technical analysis, different kinds of investments, tax planning, how IPOs work, and much more.
She specializes in options trading. She left the adult school to open her own investment academy. She now teaches online. Check out her website: www.moneyandlilia.com. There's info on her classes plus tons of links for other financial information.
There's a lot to know in the world of finances and it's easy to make mistakes ... and to get taken advantage of! Remember Bernie Madoff?? I'm so glad I understand how money works. It's essential to know! Lilia is a high-quality teacher. Don't miss an opportunity to learn from her."
"Lilia's options classes have been an invaluable resource for me. She makes even the most intimidating material accessible.
Her approach is smart and clear. She does not tout the get-rich-quick mentality that is so popular in Options trading.
She respects the risk and offers some approaches that are pretty close to foolproof for conservatively growing your money by anywhere from 10% to 30% or more.
So far, I have followed Lilia's conservative approach in options trading and my savings have grown significantly."
"Thank you, Lilia, for your amazing options class. I had no idea the opportunities options provide.
All of my options trades have been successful and I have literally made thousands of dollars in just a few months.
And it's been fun, too! Thanks again."
"$$$$$$ I am a travel nurse. I am traveling between California and Texas, mainly because nurses here in Cali make a lot more money than they do in the South.
I found out about Lilia's classes via a coworker who had taken Lilia's Put Options Course at Lilia's Investing Academy. Already I am able to see some kind of financial freedom and we are only into week 5 of the Level 3 Course.
I highly recommend her Academy. I knew absolutely nothing about stocks or terminology before her course and now I find myself dreaming about the financial rewards.
Put options are a simple concept with some confusing terminology, but with practice, persistence & Lilia's Investing Academy, you can overcome it.
My goal is to eventually take Lilia's advanced options course and by the summer of 2013, I plan NOT to renew my lease for my apartment here in Cali, but to return home to Texas and earn extra money using Put Options. I love this course."
"Lilia’s class got me started in investing. She’s a born teacher and is obviously passionate about her work.
She has a wonderful way of presenting information in a simplified and organized fashion that makes it possible for anyone to understand.
She has helped put my financial life on a long-term path toward success.
I will continue to take classes from Lilia and recommend her without reservation to anyone seeking to take control of his/her financial future."
"Hi Lilia ...... something to share with the class ..... not an options trade, but a stock purchase. Without your investing class, I would never have had the chart understanding or the confidence to do it on my own.
I just sold AAPL for $11,600 net profit in less than 2 months!
Looking forward to taking your Level 4 options class."
"I used to be a stock trader. Lilia's method of selling put options has demonstrated how to reduce risk and leverage my capital. I took Lilia's 'Level 3P' class and am currently enrolled in 'Level 4A.' Lilia has provided a structured and disciplined method for trading options.
I successfully placed my first trade which was profitable. I now have the tools to work towards my financial freedom. Thank you, Lilia."
"OMG, OMG, OMG! That was a wonderful session!!!!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU,THANK YOU.
I cannot wait for next week's session.
You are a great instructor."
"I have enjoyed the class and have found it very educational. You do a very good job of explaining the indicators and mechanics of put options."
"Derryk was able to make enough successful options trades to afford my engagement ring!
So thank you for all of your help and information!"
"Talk about 'more for your money' .... Lilia's classes are the real deal.
Before taking her Investing Strategies classes, I couldn't have told you the difference between a P/E, the S & P and a T.V.
Lilia makes personal investing accessible, understandable and practical.
Once you've dug into Levels 1 - 3, Lilia's Options classes are the next step, and an exciting one.
I highly recommend Lilia as a teacher."
PAUL A. G., DC
"Lilia's classes are a must for everyone. Her classes will not sell you anything -- Lilia is here to teach you how to understand and apply, if you choose, your new investing knowledge.
If you don't know what a P/E is, if you do not watch Nightly Business Report, these classes are for you.
Lilia presents the basics (and advanced material) in a wonderfully straightforward, EASY & USABLE format.
The time is now, not later. Spend the money. Invest in yourself.... your 'tomorrow-self' will thank you."
“I have taken investment classes from Lilia since the summer of 2009 and learned to embrace market volatility and how to make $ regardless
of the direction.”
"Lilia's a genius, both as a teacher and an investor. We are fortunate she is willing to share with us."
"In 2008, when the bottom fell from the stock market, I questioned whether I shouldn't take care of my investment portfolio instead of letting my financial planner do it. But how? I signed up for Lilia's Level 1 - 4 classes consecutively.
Level 1 was basic investment information and I learned what mutual funds, equity funds, stocks, ETF, etc. meant and which were appropriate for me.
Levels 2 - 4 included more complicated concepts and Lilia taught me to use the computer web sites for research, analysis and the criteria to use in making investment choices.
Lilia explains concepts clearly, answers questions and walks students step-by-step through research and critical thinking. I liked the Q&A's after class where we asked questions about specific investments.
She's got a great sense of humor, too.
After taking four classes, I felt confident enough to manage my own portfolio. As time permits, I'll continue taking classes to sharpen my skills.
Lilia enthusiastically shares her knowledge and expertise and I would recommend her classes for novices and seasoned investors."
"My initial financial experience was losing a lot of money on a stock. After that, I was looking for a place where I could gain insights on investing in a supportive environment.
After taking a few investment courses from other teachers, I hit the jackpot when I landed in Lilia's class. Not only did I find a supportive environment, but I also gained knowledge and confidence in investing.
I appreciate the time that she spends in class explaining each concept and would recommend her classes to both beginners and more experienced investors.
Lilia, I hope you continue teaching your classes so others can benefit as I have."
"I took Lilia's classes because I did not understand what I had in my portfolio and why it was there. All I could see was that the only one making money was my financial planner.
After taking Lilia's classes, I'm much better equipped to make educated decisions on my investments.
Lilia is responsible for that! Thanks!"
"I've taken Lilia's courses from Level 1 through Level 4 and they helped me to become a more knowledgeable, confident and better investor.
Her classes are fun and highly informative, providing a foundation as she takes you from basic through complex material. And I will definitely continue to take her courses as she adds them."
"Lilia does a wonderful job of laying a careful foundation for novices about the investment world. She is clear and concise, and makes it fun. She has inspired me to learn about investing.
I will continue to take her courses towards becoming a well-educated investor."
"I was always interested in the market but had never made a trade prior to my classes with Lilia. I took the first 3 levels with Lilia and definitely feel it helped me to become an investor.
I continue to learn and trade actively; the coursework teaches trading basics, including research and charts, then progresses into more advanced topics.
Lilia has knowledge and experience that can help both the novice trader and someone who wants to sharpen their trading skills."
"With the shock of the '08 great recession came a tremendous buying opportunity as well as the time to educate myself in the world of investing.
I jumped in feet first in March of '09 and then proceeded to get serious by taking Lilia's classes.
I now have a much broader understanding of the market and the many investment vehicles and tools available to me and have confidence in managing and growing my portfolio.
Lilia is an amazing teacher - her classes are well organized and easy to follow and she is able to make even complex topics clear to the novice investor.
Thanks to guts and education from Lilia, my portfolio is up over 27% for the last 6 months, even as the market has slowed."
"I had been investing on my own for about ten years when I signed up for my first class with Lilia.
Her classes have given me much more confidence to manage my own funds and many more tools to assess what investments to make and when to make them.
In the 9 months or so that I have been taking Lilia's classes, my portfolio is up about 20%.
No guarantees, but Lilia will make you a much more knowledgeable investor."
"I very highly recommend Lilia's investing classes.
Lilia patiently and methodically teaches the concepts, mechanisms and terminology of investing from the ground up.
You can take her investment classes with no previous investing experience, and you will come away with the tools, knowledge and confidence to invest your hard earned money.
If you're interested in taking charge of your money, then this is the class for you.
I initially took Lilia's level 1 class because I knew nothing about investing and was very intimidated by the financial world.
I'm now in her level 3 class and I'm starting to build my investment portfolio, which I never dreamed of doing before taking Lilia's classes.
Did I mention that Lilia's classes are a lot of fun? Her enthusiasm for investing is infectious!"
"Lilia has empowered the students in her classes to make intelligent investment decisions by providing them with an excellent foundation of investment knowledge, tools and resources.
She focuses on relevant, applicable topics and has the ability to provide a vast amount of detail while never losing sight of the big picture.
This course has been invaluable!"
"Lilia's class is a fantastic value! You will learn investing skills that enable you to accumulate wealth for a lifetime!"
"I have very much enjoyed and greatly benefited from Levels 1 and 2.
I had wanted to invest in the stock market for awhile but didn't know where to start.
I now know where to start a brokerage account and have the knowledge to choose investments that will be good for me.
There were so many useful tools, such as where to investigate a stock and what signs to look for.
I feel confident I will make money. THANK YOU!"
"Lilia's class is fun and informative. She makes investing accessible.
I knew nothing about this before her class.
Now I feel ready to begin managing my own investments.
She's a great teacher!"
WILLIAM H., MD
"Great class services! Learning a lot. Began to feel that managing financial future of investing is possible."
"No matter what skill level you are at in stock market investing, Lilia has something new to offer you. If you have any questions, she is able to answer them in depth and to the point."
"I greatly enjoyed the class, both for its content and Lilia's teaching style -- clear, every concept comes with examples.
The class breaks up the investing process into a series of distinct issues, from how to evaluate an ETF/stock to when to buy or sell it.
A great class for the amateur investor."
"My life has changed because of Lilia and her investing class.
I wanted to know more about how to wisely invest my money but didn't know where to start.
Lilia starts from the beginning and is clear and patient in her teaching.
Lilia gives you the tools to make your own decisions about your money -- no more spending money to have someone else invest your money.
I'm 27 now and know that Lilia's lessons will lead me to a more secure financial future than if I hadn't taken her classes."
"I now feel much more informed about the stock market and will no longer be a 'passive investor.'
Lilia has given me the knowledge to invest in a safer, more methodical manner than what I had done in the past. The buzz words and terminology are no longer foreign or intimidating.
Lilia has her students practice with a pretend account first, where trades are practiced, before using real, hard-earned cash.
I strongly recommend anyone interested in getting a handle on her stock portfolio (or to start investing), to RUN (not walk) and register for Lilia's classes immediately.
I would have gladly paid twice as much for the wealth of information I've received.
Lilia has an encyclopedic knowledge of investing that she generously shares with her students while making the classes interesting and fun. My only regret is that I did not find her sooner.
I've taken seminars and classes with other so-called 'investment experts' and they all pale in comparison to Lilia's classes.
Thank you, Lilia, for empowering so many of us!"
"Excellent teacher. I am already investing real money and making a profit. Highly recommended."
"I have wanted to learn about the financial world and understand the vocabulary of investing for a very long time, but it has always been too formidable and overwhelming....until I met Lilia.
Lilia has all the qualities I look for in a teacher:
- knows her subject very well
- is passionate about empowering students
- understands the learning process
- is able to break down the information so students understand it
- demonstrates how the necessary skills can be mastered
- encourages and helps students believe in themselves
- is patient with the need for repetition
- walks her talk and actually does what she teaches
- is honest and says 'I don't know' if she can't answer a question
- makes learning fun
- turns a scary subject into something knowable
"Prior to taking Lilia's Level 1 class, the world of finance was a mystery to me. In fact, I viewed it negatively. I had no idea what to do with my 401(k) account, only knew the Dow as some sort of vague 'financial indicator' and was completely ignorant of stocks, ETFs and investing.
By the end of her first class, I was hooked. My husband said that I came home 'with stars' in my eyes.
Lilia's approach is down to earth and her passion is infectious.
I have now completed Level 3, invested in the stock market, rebalanced my 401(k) account and feel confident in my ability to manage my own money.
I would never dream of paying someone to do that for me or to let someone have control of something as important as my finances.
I highly recommend Lilia's class. It has been one of the best educational experiences I have had in some time, and the cost and time are a small investment that yields great returns.
Thank you so much, Lilia, for making this learning experience such a pleasant and exciting journey."
"Lilia does an excellent job at distilling the most important and sophisticated investing principles and concepts in a practical and evenhanded manner that's easy to swallow.
I appreciate her sense of humor and her genuine interest in the success of her students."
"I have taken all three levels with Lilia. Her instructions are always clear, simple and easy to understand. It definitely has demystified enough the stock market for me to become an educated investor.
I highly recommend taking all three levels with her if you are 'green' to investing."
"Lilia's Level 1 class is the best value in the Bay. It is an entry-level course that is both comprehensive and accessible.... perfect for all ages, experience levels and skill levels.
I cannot thank myself enough for getting my behind off the couch and out the door, overcoming any apprehension I had and spending a little money on myself.
I cannot overstate how valuable this class has been for me.
Lilia is an excellent teacher and has created an incredible community resource with her classes.
Everyone needs to take Lilia's classes. It's as if we've been eating fast food all our lives and someone comes along with a basic nutrition and cooking class. It is that eye-opening."
"Lilia explains concepts and terminology of investing alternatives so clearly and plainly that I now have more confidence to make decisions about money management.
This was the best education I've had since going to law school thirty years ago."
"I've thoroughly enjoyed Lilia's class. Even though I've been investing for many years, I still needed this class!
Lilia is a patient teacher, is totally experienced and 'into the market.'"
"I have been looking for a class like this for ten years! I have learned so much.
Lilia presents the information in a manner that is easy to understand.
If you don't get it, she will explain it again."
"Before attending Lilia's class, the financial world appeared dreadful and frightening. Lilia has simplified the steps involving investing and the language around it.
Thank you, Lilia, for teaching me and many other fearful women who may be so lucky to attend your class."
"Thank you for empowering me about money."
"I LOVED the class!!!"
"Financial education should be as mandatory as sex education and should probably also be taught in school.
I feel as though a veil has been lifted and I finally understand what everyone is talking about when they talk about the market.
The stock market is (somewhat) demystified. I am able to take control of my finances, invest with more intelligence, read the technical charts and have the knowledge and confidence necessary to manage and grow my financial health.
Without a shadow of a doubt, I can say this is the best (and most important) class I have taken in my life, including graduate school.
A course in investing should be mandatory.
Run, don't walk, to Lilia's classes!"
"Thank you for teaching me ETFs in your Level 1 and 2 classes. I understood enough to dive in around May 2009."
"Thank you, Lilia, for demystifying the world of investing! I now feel, at the end of Level 2, well prepared to take control of my financial future.
It is a testament to your teaching ability that I feel confident that I will make educated decisions about when, how and where to invest."
"Attending Lilia's investment classes was, indeed, a very good investment.
Lilia is an excellent teacher who can make investing fun and interesting. She creates a very relaxed environment where learning is a pleasure and no question goes unanswered.
"Lilia's class has given me the information to confidently buy and sell stocks. She taught many useful definitions and strategies."
"Essential information. Everyone needs to successfully manage her/his money in either bear or bull markets."
DAVE H., PhD
"Very good class, not for women only, but for anyone wanting to know some details regarding investments.
We all have to manage our own retirement investments. Even if we use a money manager (although only a few people have enough to hire a manager), we need to assess the manager.
I am amazed that the cryptic little data boxes in Yahoo Finance actually mean something in English.
A good course for anybody doing his/her own investing. A refreshing view of finance taught by someone who is not selling her own business (i.e., stock broker, financial planner)."
"I gained very valuable insights into the world of investing from Lilia.
She is knowledgeable on the topic and devoted to sharing her knowledge. I have recommended her classes to friends."
"I have benefited a lot from Lilia's class. Her teaching is very well organized, which makes the learning process less stressful for brand new students.
What I love the most is that she shows us how to use the financial information on the Internet. We learned how to utilize the useful free information.
She made me feel more confident and eager to learn more and more. Pretty soon, we will all be independent in handling our own finances."
"I joined Lilia's class in desperation, realizing that I knew nothing about investing. My sad portfolio had lost 40% and I'm 5 years from retirement.
I've gleaned gems of information and am learning how to be my own financial adviser. After all, who cares the most about my finances? ME!
Lilia's class is incredible! Lilia is smart, articulate, and knows the market."
"Lilia's class was fantastic! I now feel so empowered to manage my own money.
I understand business reports on the news and no longer feel so "emotional" about my investments. My money is working for me now, not stressing me out.
Lilia's class cleared up so many questions I had about investing and opened my eyes to a larger world of making money, not just sitting on it.
"Lilia has all the skills and qualities of a fabulous teacher. She teaches in a personable, simple and direct way.
Her commitment to conveying information and answering or responding to the pupil's interest is unwavering.
Interest level is always high in the class sessions as evidenced by pupils often declining to take breaks.
Lilia is always available after class and online via her blog or email."
"I appreciated Lilia's enthusiasm and dedication to teaching us about investing.
Because of Lilia's class, I am less intimidated by the process and am learning the nuts and bolts of investing, which has made me more confident about becoming a 'beginning investor.'
I hope to be able to take Level 2 and build on what I have learned in Level 1. Lilia's Level 1 course should be required in schools and available to everyone - especially young women!
My family did not teach me financial literacy and I could have really benefited from Lilia's class years ago!"
"A great class which teaches you to monitor and protect your investments. It also teaches you what to look for as you make investments.
Great advice for those of us who are amateurs."
SUSAN ST. G.
"If you feel intimidated by the stock market, this is the class for you. Lilia makes complex financial concepts clear and simple.
Her classes are thorough, fast-paced and fun.
Lilia will take the time needed to ensure that all her students understand the material presented.
I feel that I now understand the basics of investing and look forward to the next class, Level 2."
"Lilia is a very knowledgeable and thorough teacher! She also creates a comfortable environment."
"Lilia's class has been very informative to me. I came in knowing almost nothing about money and investing.
Lilia very carefully explained all major topics, was well-organized, and is very approachable.
While I am still a novice, I learned what not to do as well as what is safe to do.
I highly recommend Lilia's class."
"It never occurred to me, before your class, that stock market investing could be this accessible, easily understood, fearlessly (relatively!) implemented, and a fun, not very intimidating, challenge!
