2012 Workshops
 I've taught workshops on financial planning at a number of schools, including Bastyr University, South Seattle Community College, and UW's Experimental College. The classes focus on education versus product recommendation, and are an excellent way to clarify financial issues in our lives. Contact me for times and locations for the class series open to the public. JustinHarris@srinvest.org
