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.
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.
