James A. Osborne

Chief Executive Officer

EDUCATION & BACKGROUND

As a former college athlete (football player) and a graduate of the Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, TX, James Osborne (also known as "JaRO" to many of his family and friends), understands better than most the four biggest issues for his students and clients are retirement, paying for college, balancing the two, and maintaining a sustainable budget.

With personal and professional experience with the hardships of college life as an athlete, student, and parent, he has created systems that not only advise but also alleviate the true pain of the college process for both parent, grandparent, guardian, and student alike.

James is currently the author of 5 books, all available in electronic format, and has facilitated over 200 workshops, seminars and talks around a vast array of topics as of this date.

AS CEO

I set the tone and the vision for our organization, and serve each of our board members and clients in a capacity that helps us rise to greater, more specific levels of achievement. I have no doubt that Big 6 Alliance will be a household name in 5 years.

AS A FINANCIAL INSTRUCTOR

Work with my clients to help them address financial goals and objectives by providing a comprehensive planning approach based on a commitment of sound financial advice, attention to detail, a service-oriented focus and “state of the art” ideas. My goal is to help them protect and preserve their lifestyles, assets and loved ones. While the strategies for each of my clients may be different, the goal is always the same...to help provide the financial balance we all want to achieve.

SOME OF MY PROJECTS

WHAT CLIENTS SAY?

"Prof. Osborne's teaching and training opened my mind to a new way of thinking, which has led to me trying to pursue different opportunities in business. I would definitely be stuck in the corporate trap without any hope of getting out, if it were not for him. "

— KELLY MURRY
Social Media Strategist & Entrepreneur  

"I think Mr. Osborne's program is tremendous, highly underrated, and valuable to every age level looking to improve in some area of life or another. And it's because his teaching is based in personal finance, but wow, the life impact it has is crazy!"

— JEREMY LARSON
Mentor and Instructor

"All I can say is WOW! It's hard to fathom how much you don't know, then you meet James Osborne, sit in class, and before you know it, 8 weeks have gone by and you are wondering how in the world did time fly so fast. It's the combination of training, interaction, and value, that makes you lose track of time. This guy is amazing. How are you not taking his course is completely beyond me."

IF You Have A Child/Student Going to College, your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is THE most important financial number in your life.

Do You Want to AVOID THE COSTLY MISTAKES, GET MORE GRANTS & SCHOLARSHIPS, & KNOW THE AMOUNT THAT COLLEGES EXPECT YOUR FAMILY TO PAY IN ADVANCE? 

Looking to Find Free Money For College, Based On Merit, & Not Your Household Income?

Then look no further. Now you can quickly locate over 15,000 merit scholarships offered by colleges around the U.S. in amounts from $2,000 to

$40,000, including over 1,500 full-ride and full-tuition scholarships.

Each listing includes the GPA, and ACT/SAT scores needed to qualify and the direct link to access the application.

It even includes whether the scholarship is automatic based on grades and test scores, or whether it’s a competitive or talent-based scholarship.

What is it?

  1. The LARGEST MERIT SCHOLARSHIP DIRECTORY AVAILABLE
  2. EVERY FULL-RIDE SCHOLARSHIP IN THE US
  3. And its SIMPLE, QUICK AND EASY SEARCH
  4. It has ALL SCHOLARSHIP QUALIFICATIONS
  5. It can SAVE HUNDREDS OF HOURS OF RESEARCH
  6. And its the ABSOLUTE BEST SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH ON THE INTERNET (I only say this because other scholarship search sites have mostly small private scholarships averaging only $500 each, difficult to search, loaded with advertisements, and families get annoyed quickly with them. Not this one.) 

My team & I have diligently crafted my scholarship webpage to make this as easy of a search and filter process as possible. We've covered everything you could and could NOT think of. Ex: It even includes whether the scholarship is automatic based on grades and test scores, or whether it’s a competitive or talent-based scholarship.
