Hi There,

Read My LEAPS!

For more than 86% of the stock investors, LEAPS (Long Term Options) is a great mystery.

After you take this course, you will be among those elite traders and investors who master the rare qualities of LEAPS option, and know exactly how to use them to boost their ROI.

LEAPS is a main stream security, traded in huge volumes in all the leading options exchanges in the U.S, Europe, Australia, and Asia.

all the big names and the blue chips in Wall Street have LEAPS on their stocks: Google, Apple, Facebook, IBM, Bank of America, Microsoft, Oracle, HP, Boeing, you name it.

And for a reason. Actually for a VERY good reason. LEAPS introduces an alternative investment avenue for the short-to-mid term investors. LEAPS follow exactly the behaviour of the underlying stock, The Dollar profit potential is almost identical. But, there is one BIG difference:

LEAPS are much cheaper!

In the case studies you will learn throughout the course, you will see for yourself how you can purchase Facebook LEAPS, IBM LEAPS, and Altria Group LEAPS for just around 1/3 of the stock price! 

Furthermore, you will learn how you can boost your profits even further by consistently selling short term covered calls, based on the LEAPS you already hold.

after you finish this course you will feel like you have discovered a brave , new world that was unknown to you until recently - the amazing world of the LEAPS. You will be able to translate all the knowledge you acquire in the course to an immediate action plan. I'm here for any question you may have.

I intend to add more and more  tips, tricks , and tactics to this course, based on the clever questions, that you, my students, will bring up while learning the course.

This is going to be  a great  adventure for all of us.

To Your Success!

Veteran Entrepreneur, Instructor and Spiritual Mentor

My name is Menachem Reinshmidt (Manny is short). I'm a long time Hi-Tech entrepreneur, and have been involved in numerous ventures that were initiated by my ideas and vision.

One of my start-up companies, Marnetics, has become a high profile company and made an IPO in the US capital market in the early 2000s. It was traded several years under the symbol MXB until acquired by another company in its field. For couple of years I've served as Marnetics CEO and Chairman Of The Board. I was also the founder and CTO of Speedwise technology who was a world leader in mobile traffic acceleration solutions. Speedwise was also acquired by one of its competitors in the early 2000s. At present time I'm actively involved in 2 start-up companies that I've incubated: (1) Koolhit that has a great product for mobile TV-like channel applications, and Mazata which provides an improved user experience interface to the good, old Google search.

Above all that, my true passion was teaching. I lectured in numerous seminars and courses in all fields of data communications. I've recently discovered Udemy, and was immediately turned-on. That is simply a great platform for boundaryless teaching and learning!

I've immediately decided that I'd like to be part of this knowledge- transfer universe and to become an active instructor in Udemy. I hope my vast experience in business in general, and Internet business in particular, will contribute to Udemy students, making them prosperous with their ventures and careers, and with their lives in general.
