ASK Consulting, LLC, (ASK) was formed in 2009 to fund and provide administrative and consulting support to four research projects that were developing intellectual property for a strategic plan called the Progress Project, and to own the resulting intellectual property. Experienced financial services industry consultants were retained by ASK to provide their expertise to the development of the Progress Project strategic plan. The resulting Progress Project strategic plan was designed to mitigate productive Americans’ post-Great Recession retirement savings deficits, and to mitigate 501 (c) 3 Organizations’ post-Great Recession endowment savings deficits. Intellectual property was also developed by ASK consultants for the two central implementation components of the Progress Project, the New Economic Order Planning Program and the Agent of Progress Communication, Marketing, and Sales System.
Research projects sponsored by ASK include the Economics of Life Research Project and the Doctors Economic Research Project which were initiated in 1971 to develop economic education, retirement savings and endowment planning programs for business owner/executives, other productive individuals, and doctors, the Agent of Progress Research Project which was initiated in 1974 to develop brain function management systems for use in communication, marketing and sales applications, and the Permanent Endowment Research Project, which was initiated in 1981 to develop a guaranteed outcome, perpetually multiplying, endowment funding system for families and for 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations.
In addition to retaining experienced financial services industry consultants, ASK Consulting, LLC (ASK) licenses an insurance agency subsidiary, Progress Alliance Insurance Services (PAIC), a DBA of ASK, Consulting, LLC. ASK, as owner of the Progress Project intellectual property, receives intellectual property use fees equal to 30% of the commission revenues generated by life insurance agents who contract with Progress Alliance Insurance Services as Progress Financial/Endowment Counselors. These specially trained individuals implement the New Economic Order Planning Program for doctors, business owner/executives and other productive individuals, affluent individuals, and non-profit organizations. ASK also provides third party administrative services for 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations and for affluent individuals who participate in the proprietary, special-design endowment programs developed by the Permanent Endowment Research Project.
