Item 4. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant The new auditor is the Registrant's firm of certified public accountants. Item 5. Other Events The following is the History and Business of the Registrant's Financial Freedom Enterprises, Inc., which will be carried forward as contemplated by the Acquisition Agreement. Financial Freedom Enterprises, Inc. "Putting People on the Road to Financial Freedom"; "Financial Freedom - Wake Up America and Return to Prosperity ... Your Divine Right" has operated the Financial Fitness Centers since 1988 and has had over 13,000 Associates enrolled in its Financial Educational Seminars using the Financial Freedom written and video programs to open up a new world and insight to preserving wealth, creating wealth, and learning the easy (but usually overlooked by the less financially sophisticated American), efficient and effective "Money Management" and "Greater Personal and Financial Freedom." The impressive growth has resulted only from individual referrals since inception. The Denver Rocky Mountain News for November 6, 1995, in a full page article titled "Consumer Debt Out of Control?" stated in part: "U.S. consumers had a $988.6 billion debt burden as of August, according to the latest Federal Reserve Board figures. That's up $119 billion, or nearly 14%, from the same time last year. Meanwhile, signs are everywhere that people are having problems paying off those bills: The American Bankers Association said last month that 3.26% of all consumer loans, including credit cards, home equity and auto loans, were at least 30 days past due as of June 30, the most recent data available. In June 1994, the delinquency rate was 2.56%." The Financial Fitness "Associates" learn the techniques for empowering themselves, with the skills and tools needed for managing their finances wisely. These stated goals are summarized by: o Achieving Financial Health - by living on less than what you earn; o Financial Fitness - by keeping more of what you earn; o Financial Freedom - by freeing up what you have and will yet earn by getting out of debt, and, more importantly, staying out; o Financial Retirement - through "Provident Living" and a "Home Financial Management System" The Financial Fitness Centers provide attractive, practical, and easy to use financial educational tools in text format and over twelve videos, including: o Financial Preparedness System o The Blue Print System for detailed budgeting and Money Management o The "Say Hello To Success" for effective, efficient telemarketing and Network Marketing, for establishing productive, financial, rewarding work habits and Prospecting Methodologies o The Debt Retirement Program o The Payment-Acceleration Program o The Mortgage Cost-Reduction System The Financial Fitness presentation focuses on techniques businesses can implement in their human resources programs to assist the individual employee, with the resulting improvement of an acceleration of the overall productive and resulting increase in the Company's financial revenues. -4-

A Profile of Financial Fitness Centers Financial Freedom Enterprises, Inc. has developed the complete "Financial Preparedness System" - The blueprint Financial Preparedness System to help individuals and families discover the freedom and peace of mind that comes from having achieved financial security. Financial Freedom Enterprises, Inc. is now building a nationwide, seamless network of Financial Fitness Centers as the vehicle for providing this most needed service to the public. Their services, products, and Center support play an integral role in helping The Blueprint Financial Preparedness System "Deliver its promised reward - making the kind of financial security we speak of within the reach of all Americans." The systems and services focus on empowering the individual with the necessary tools to become financially prepared, so that they can achieve greater personal freedom for themselves and their families. The professionally trained representatives, and counselors assist individuals in changing unproductive monetary habits, and provides the kind of education and training on how best to utilize these most powerful financial preparedness strategies, in order to create a positive lifestyle change in their personal and family finances. The Blueprint System Advantage By enrolling onto the Blueprint Financial Preparedness System, with the help of one of the Financial Fitness Centers' representatives, the clients are automatically provided the option of four powerful programs; four comprehensive programs within the Blueprint System itself. Every client's financial preparedness needs, including those educational needs that help to facilitate the development of these sound financial preparedness skills, can be met by taking advantage of that strategy, service, or course that best fits his/her specific needs. For example: o Debt-Retirement Program This program is designed for individuals who are inundated with bills and creditors, and do not have sufficient cash flow to service monthly financial obligations. This program, for honorably discharging all debts, is a positive alternative to bankruptcy. Financial Fitness Centers assist each individual in: o Establishing a workable household family budget; o Education through weekly workshops on how to more effectively control spending; o Negotiating reduced payments with creditors; o Disbursing monthly payments to creditors through our licensed, bonded client trust account. o Payment-Acceleration Program This program is tailored to those busy individuals who would like to utilize the Financial Fitness payment disbursement services, in order to free up their time for more productive endeavors. It is also designed for those individuals who find themselves in financial inertia, not getting ahead, living paycheck to paycheck. The Financial Fitness professionally trained staff assists in providing: o An established customized budget tailored to individual specific needs, showing by percentage where your money is being allocated; o A personalized program to eliminate all debt, including home mortgages and car loans, in approximately 1/3 the normal time period; o Help in tracking individual spending; o Monthly accountability sessions with professionally trained counselors; o Weekly disbursements of payment obligations through our licensed, bonded client trust account; o Monthly spreadsheets accounting by dollar amount and percentages; o Personalized quarterly counseling to maximize suggested methods in attaining personal financial goals. -5-

o I.R.S. Services The Financial Fitness IRS Services are multifaceted to enhance other Financial Freedom Enterprises, Inc. services or to stand alone as an effective service to taxpayers who are in need of assistance in dealing with the IRS. o The IRS Services are available to the debt retirement client upon enrollment with The Blueprint Financial Preparedness System, with one of two objectives with the IRS for the client: a) Hardship - The client is unable to make payments. b) Payment arrangements within the client's ability to pay. o The Offer in Compromise program helps clients settle their account, assisting non-filers, delinquent taxpayers, and clients with huge tax burdens that they are unable to pay. The OIC program, in simple terms, is an offer to the IRS which is lower than what the debt is. For example, the IRS accepts $1,000 as payment on a $19,000 debt (actual case). This program has proven to be extremely successful. o The IRS Abatement of Penalties is a program which is largely unknown. Word of mouth helps to inform many potential clients who are not already aware of this helpful program, due to the fact that anyone who has paid off an IRS debt (with the last payment made being less than three years previous) has an excellent chance to have their penalties abated. o Educational Training & Workshops Support Financial Fitness Centers educational training and workshop program consists of twelve video tape courses, with accompanying workbooks, and are designed to give management training and support for developing sound money management skills. These video courses and/or monthly workshops assist the client in establishing his/her actual financial goals, helping to set them on the course which they need to follow if they are to ever achieve greater personal freedom for themselves. As part of this support there are also the ongoing counseling sessions which the Center counselors provide. While the client is establishing his/her financial course, he/she will often need encouragement and direction, which is actually the heart of Financial Fitness Centers service. o Financial Fitness Centers Can Help Everyone o Debt-Management strategies and mortgage equivalency rate reduction; o Increase the client's disposable income by 10% to 20% without a pay increase; o Learn specific strategies to pay off all debt, including cars and home, in approximately one-third the time period, and at an equivalency rate of 4% to 5%; o Put an end to paycheck-to-paycheck living, and high interest payments because of debt; o Solve all immediate and pressing financial crises; o Relieve stress and worry associated with financial problems; o Gain control of personal financial future. o "Don't Become Another Statistic" o In this decade, America's $10 Trillion Debt - from the consumer, corporate and government sectors - doubled the nation's $5 trillion GNP. Household debt as a percentage of income after taxes skyrocketed from just over 80 percent in the 1980s to almost 10 percent in the 1990s. o A recent USA Today article noted that the rearing of a single child in America will cost approximately $250,000. The Centers educate the client on financial strategies to provide the funds to give clients' children the advantages they'll need to survive in the 21st century. -6-

o A college education ranks second among major purchases an average person will make in his or her lifetime - second only to purchasing a home. The Financial Fitness services is developed to show how a client can afford both. Financial Wellness Subsidiary Ms. Walker has been working toward the formation of the Financial Wellness Corporation to offer the Financial Fitness educational materials to Health Care Providers, inasmuch as recent analysis of the dramatically increasing health care costs in America shows that the most serious cause of illness in this country is brought on by stress; and, one of the major causes of stress is the result of financial pressures. Never before have individuals and families been under such financial stress. Consumer's debt in the United States now exceeds the national debt, and the accompanying problems reach into every household. Ms. Walker has developed the Financial Fitness proprietary product and services to address these stress related illnesses; and proposes to direct its marketing efforts to Health Maintenance Organizations, and other organizations in the Managed Health Care Industry and Insurance Companies. The Financial Wellness program will be presented through Interactive Multi-Media, CD-ROM electronic technology. Ms. Walker and her staff have spent many years developing and working with automation techniques offered by companies such as IBM, Microsoft, Lotus, Novell, and Apple to develop systems that take advantage of interactive multimedia. Automation products such as CD-ROMs, personal computers, networking, video conferencing, multimedia, and other advanced automation capabilities will play a major role in delivering and supporting these products and services. The End User Corporate Market Overview - HMOs and insurance companies are promoting wellness programs to potential and existing clients because of competitive pressures. The products promoted by Financial Wellness are meant to complement the internal wellness solution because many companies have implemented some form of a wellness program internally. The advantage of Financial Wellness is the unique contribution it can bring to wellness programs by providing financial education and money management skills heretofore unavailable as a stress reducing program. The products promoted by Financial Wellness are designed to enhance the existing company wellness program and are offered directly to the client company either by Financial Wellness or its partners. Financial Wellness will also provide customized systems that will be offered by the health care providers under a licensing arrangement with Financial Wellness. These products and services will be used to enhance existing wellness programs. Also, with the present trends associated with health care reform, many health care providers are attempting to provide additional services to differentiate them from the public perception of huge, uncaring, bureaucratic organizations. In the past few years, it has become fashionable to show how many health care providers are not concerned with the individual and are more concerned with the dollar. Additional services and products offered to their clientele can change this perception. Further, new and exciting programs can be promoted by the health care provider to differentiate them from their various competitors. Providing financial education and training is a giant leap forward from previous wellness programs which places Financial Wellness on the cutting edge as a provider of financial education through multimedia. Marketing Plans Management has executed a Marketing and Advertising Agreement with two prominent national advertising firms, FMS Direct, a Direct Response Television marketing production; and a retail representation firm, Mack Media Specialties, collectively FMS Direct, a recognized leader in the Infomercial industry and "Specialists in TV Direct Marketing," to create and produce a High Impact, Result Oriented 30 minute TV Infomercial and Direct Response Print and TV Commercials, to be shown in various television media outlets through Mack Media Specialties, providing on-going marketing support in all phases of the execution of the program. The Infomercial will present the Financial Fitness products in an interesting, persuasive, entertaining format which calls for immediate viewer -7-

response directly to an 800 number telemarketing operator, who will record order information, along with other detailed consumer demographics data for subsequent marketing. Other targeted markets include home shopping channels, wholesale clubs, universities, and various retail outlets, including foreign distribution (with a targeted market of 75 million Americans believed to desperately need "Stress-Free Debt Reduction"). Management's pro-forma estimate is for generating potential sales of $11 Million annually in the first year of full operations. Summary of the Financial Fitness Stress-Free Debt Reduction Marketing o Infomercials, through Interactive Media (cable, network TV and satellite), including DRTV, Home Shopping Channels, Computer Services (CompuServe, Genie, Prodigy, etc.) interactive cable. o Direct Mail and Print directed to "Affinity Groups"; e.g., large corporations, universities, fraternities and sororities, and multi-level marketing and mail order catalogues companies, providing special discount earnings through volume purchasing power. The Test Marketing In February 1995, Ms. Walker's $75,000 "Test Marketing" production was aired on a major television channel in New York City and Atlanta, Georgia. Rodney Buscher, President of Los Angeles-based FMS Direct (the "father" of Infomercials and author of the definitive treatise on Infomercials) had produced two 60-second and two 120-second "spots." The response was an amazing 10,000 callers requesting the Financial Fitness materials. Mr. Buscher told Ms. Walker that the response was far larger than any of his previous 229 Infomercials, concluding that his previous Infomercials had been geared to a "Specific Product or Service," and concluded that the Financial Fitness market was so broad, encompassing all demographic areas; and, therefore was without limitation, leading Mr. Buscher to believe that Ms. Walker's projections of $11 Million in first year sales based on her historical experience was from $1 Million to $2 Million short of what his experience indicated to be reasonably anticipated. However, because this is such a new marketing strategy for Financial Fitness, there can be no assurance of what response might actually result when the airing was in other demographic markets. Franchise Marketing In 1997 By January 1997, Financial Fitness will launch its nationwide Franchise Marketing with the filing of the Franchisor Offering Circular with the Federal Trade Commission and the Attorney General's Office in each of the states where the Company is doing business, and those states anticipated to be Nationwide in a reasonably short time after the Infomercials have been aired in other demographic/geographic areas. Based on Ms. Walker's discussions with the producer of the Infomercials, Rodney Buscher, it is anticipated that Franchise Fees of $6,000,000 can be generated in the first twelve months. Although there can be no assurance, the meetings with Franchise Stores International confirmed that 400 Franchises at $15,000 each could be reasonably anticipated. Caveat: All financial projections are inherently unreliable inasmuch as they are predicted on projections of future financial, social, economic and political events; some, if not many, will not occur as predicted, and some may not occur at all. THIRD PARTY MARKETING AGREEMENTS History of Growth by Personal Referrals After an eight-year history of growth, serving over 15,000 individuals participating in the Company's financial seminars and utilizing the Company's printed and video learning materials, all by word-of-mouth personal referrals, in 1996 the Company adopted an aggressive national marketing plan, resulting in the following: -8-

The NMA agents utilize the Company's products, particularly the Debt Retirement and Payment Acceleration financial educational materials as a method to enhance the life insurance sales by showing clients how to organize their financial affairs to save funds in excess of the annual life insurance premium. NMA guarantees the Company a minimum of 1,000 new clients monthly to maintain NMA's contractual commitment to the Company. See Pro- Forma Financial Projections in the section preceding the Company's audited financial statements for an analysis of the anticipated Company revenues under this NMA agreement. OMEGA Tax Consultants OMEGA is a tax consulting firm in Columbus, Ohio with 1,000 clients throughout the State of Ohio and anticipates being able to expand to 5,000 clients with the introduction of the Company's Pay Excel Program (although the Company makes no representations as to the number of OMEGA clients who will utilize the Company's programs). Garden State Consumer Credit Counseling Garden States operates in New York and New Jersey assisting "Crises" debtor clients, serving over 7,500 clients, represents to the Company that they receive over 25,000 telephone inquiries annually for assistance of the kind provided by the Company through its Debt Retirement and Payment Acceleration program, where the Company receives $120.00 per client set-up fee and $100.00 monthly (that is shared 50% - 50% with the vendor). Manuel Ramos Hispanic Assistance Program Mr. Ramos, a widely acclaimed host to Hispanic Radio and Television stations in southern California and Arizona, with outreach to Hispanic populations throughout the U.S. (a $20 million Hispanic potential market), is finalizing, by September 30, 1996, a Spanish language version of the Company's Debt Free Retirement and Debt Management programs. Carol Walker and Mr. Ramos inaugurated the program in late August 1996, with a target of 1,000 clients per month by the late fall 1996. Texas Christian Church Organizations Company Management has introduced its Debt programs to a number of Christian Church Groups, commencing in the Spring of 1996 in Dallas, Texas. The Company is completing the text and video of financial independence based on Biblical scriptures. When these supplemental Biblical materials are developed in text and -9-

video format in the Fall of 1996, the Company's modest anticipation is approximately 400 new clients monthly as the number of participating churches expands from the current nine in the Dallas, Texas area. In addition, with the marketing expertise of Financial Potential Corporation, and the Company's other new joint venture partners, an aggressive solicitation program is commencing to secure the recommendation of the Company's programs by local, area and national real estate, insurance and mortgage brokers and agents.

Payment Acceleration clients are NOT crisis clients. o A "Center" is a trained satellite organization that has a license agreement to sell the Company's services and products. o The above figures show a "franchise" and a "center." For the purposes of this projection they are considered the same as both are client providers. o The Company in both the Debt Retirement and Payment Acceleration programs helps individuals to set-up and maintain workable budgets. Some people will complete the Program and some (@ 15%) terminate prior to reaching the goals the Company's program had established for each client. This complete/default rate has been tracked in the Debt Retirement program at 15% (management believes that the Payment Acceleration program will have the same rate). Item 6.
