The interviews that he does with experts in the field is also invaluable because you get to see different perspectives. I'm so glad that I found this gem! - Ugochi W.

  • Making it easier to succeed...

    I highly recommend Dom's Jumpstart coaching lab course. If you're looking to be a financial professional, you need this course. Dom is friendly, helpful, and most importantly extremely knowledgable about the financial industry, with over 25 years of experience he knows the ins and outs of finance. What I like the most about this course is that Dom simplifies challenging concepts while giving his students great insight and advice making it easier to succeed in the financial industry. - Becca G.

  • Virtual mentorship at its finest!

    I found Mr. Henderson's youtube channel by searching black financial advisors. As a African American female I was a bit intimidated about the finance field because I didn't see anyone who looked like me. Once I found his youtube channel I was able to learn so much about what it takes to become a financial advisor and coach. I was able to get a lot of my questions answered and fears dismissed. His videos were easy to understand and straight to the point. Mr. Henderson has informed me of different opportunities such as Quad A organization and the JP morgan development program. I have learned so much from not only his videos but his facebook group. It's exciting to see other young college students who have the same drive and goals as I do. I am very eager about my future now and am happy to know I have someone who I can go to for guidance. -Faith K.

  • A deep well of knowledge...

    Working with Dominique has been a pleasure. I first stumbled upon his content on YouTube and I have to say that it was fantastic. Dominique has an exceptional amount of Consumer awareness in that he knows teach in depth, very robust subjects in a simple way that’s easy to use in your own practice or even spur a conversation at the dinner table. I reached out to Dominique to ask if he had any resources for a young advisor and he added me to his private coaching community. I am thankful for the opportunity. Professionally, I was able to apply some of the concepts that he teaches and articles that he shares in real time within my workplace development. Thank you, Dominique Henderson for paying it forward. -Rick S.

  • Insight and answers every step of the way...

    I am forever grateful for all the resources made available by Dominique, as well as him personally taking the time to understand all the dynamics of my situation and mentoring me into an actionable plan that is in alignment with my vision. He was able to spare me the mistake of spending thousands of dollars more on a degree I wouldn't need for what I wanted to achieve. Not only did he give me the insight and 411 to pick the correct degree that I am just a few classes from currently holding a major in, but he also gave me tasteful and factual information on a prospective employer I was unsure of. Life is not a linear journey especially for a career changer going into the financial services industry, but Dominque helps you plot the exact points to get you to where you want to be, and he is there with advice, insight and answers every step of the way. -Ross B.
