Don has conducted over 500 educational workshops since starting in 2002. His topics are as varied as tax reform, estate preservation, asset protection, and as simple as organizing your important papers, and reducing expenses; he has established himself as a leader in educating his community on tax and retirement issues.

As the President of the St. Louis, Missouri and Melbourne, Florida Chapters of the American Financial Education Alliance (AFEA) Don has taught classes for this non-profit National Education organization at Universities, local libraries, and at Fortune 500 companies.

In the National media Don has been published in articles from Money Magazine, USA Today, U.S. News & World Report, Financial Planning Magazine, Market Watch, Financial Times, and several others. He has been a contributor to several local Fox affiliates.

In 2024, he makes his debut in film as a featured expert in the movie, Retirement Deception. The movie presents Don in a starring role with two of his clients sharing their stories of fulfilling their retirement dreams due to holistic planning. The film is designed to educate families across the country about the need to be prepared for retirement, and will be in theaters nationwide.
