and all our instructors are all world-class traders, so our students really benefit from that experience as well. all right, so i want to make sure everyone understands that you teach people how to trade and invest online, but they learn at a location here locally. exactly. okay. our denver campus. all right. now why is it, though, that so many people struggle when they try to invest in the market? it's not their fault, really. most people, they've never had any real training. they don't have the knowledge and skill set necessary to be successful in the market, so, consequently, they just put hope for the best. it's basically gambling. it really is for a lot of people. and if you don't know what you're doing, i think it's probably a hundred percent gambling, which, as we all know, you can't win. right. but if you are a professional and you know what you're doing, i mean you've made a living being a trader. it's a skill set just like anything else. yeah, my whole life i was a professional trader. it's only the last three years that i've gotten into teaching. so i understand that you need to buy low and sell high, and you
