Course Description

Tired of the same old "personal finance for dummies" advice? Fed up with high-fees, low-return mutual funds? Are you ready to build a customized asset portfolio like the experts? Is it time to super-charge your finances to finally reach your goals?

Bulletproof Personal Finance: Expert Asset Allocation is your solution!

The average person today completes twelve-to-sixteen years worth of formal education and graduates with no useful information regarding personal finance or money management. This leaves the average person with a predicament as they progress in their career: what should I do with my money? Where should I go to learn actionable personal financial strategies?

This course was written to answer those questions and fill that void. Bulletproof Money Management will show you how to construct a customized asset allocation model, and how to integrate each asset class into your portfolio. The course will walk you through several screencasts to demonstrate this where necessary.

All of the concepts presented in this course are rooted in a fundamental understanding of money, economics, and current macroeconomic trends based upon years of independent research. These concepts are more than abstract theory, however; they are the strategies used by the instructor to build a sustainable asset portfolio and quit his job within five years time.

Keep in mind, there are no get-rich-quick schemes. This course is designed with proper risk management techniques in mind. The number one rule of money management is: don't lose money.

Instructor Biography

Joe Withrow, Author, Editor, Investor, Philosopher... in random order

Joe Withrow is just an average, hardworking American who did everything by the ‘American Dream’ handbook.

He took advanced classes in a public high school and graduated with good grades. He then went on to earn a finance degree from a public university.

Upon graduation, Joe moved to a metropolitan city and played the corporate game, working for two different mega banks and earning several minor promotions/pay raises/bonuses for his efforts.

Joe bought a starter home, met his wife, and settled down to live the American Dream – just as he had been “educated” to do. He contributed the match rate to his 401(k) and he maxed out his contributions to a traditional IRA – just as he had been “educated” to do.

Joe was doing everything the “right” way and a storybook life appeared to be unfolding before him.

But then something strange happened.

Joe started to see that the rat-race had no light at the end of the tunnel and no rewards worth reaping.

He began to realize that the ‘American Dream’ was at best a myth and at worst a means of control. He began to see how the monetary system itself worked against him. He began to realize that his annual wage increases could not possibly keep up with inflation over the long term and therefore he was stuck on a perpetual tread-mill despite doing everything the right way. He began to realize that the stock market could not possibly go up exponentially forever no matter how many talking heads swore up and down that it would.

So Joe started to do a lot of independent research and he started to do a lot of introspective examination. He quickly came to the realization that he had to build a more self-reliant lifestyle if he wanted to have a chance to create a Mindful life for himself and his family. So Joe made the decision to seek financial freedom. Over a period of time, Joe was able to eliminate debt and needless spending and redirect his income to a carefully constructed asset allocation model. This enabled him to end his career in corporate America and spend his time pursuing entrepreneurial projects of interest.
