This course is aimed at young adults and university graduates who are about to enter into a profession. It is a beginners course that teaches you the basics of working with money and planning for the future. The 12 lessons and advice are simple, yet share practical and essential information that can make your future far more sustainable, thus giving you the edge in becoming financially secure.


How are your parents doing financially? What about the parents of your friends? What about you?

Every lesson is based on SOLID, practical and real-life experience with the sole purposes of guiding you to understand the importance of taking control of your finances. For most people, talking taxes and finances is not an exciting topic, so if you're expecting a 'bells, whistles & fireworks' course, with super graphics, special effects and loads of entertainment - you are not going to find it here! Out of 100 people in the world today, how many can retire comfortably? Less than 5? Will you be one of them?

I cannot repeat, or stress how important the information here is for you to make a success of your life.

The topics are of UTMOST IMPORTANCE for you to succeed in a concise and clear format. Even though this course is free... do yourself a favour and ask an older person to watch each lecture and they will all tell you they wish they had known what is shared when they where your age and that the information shared is priceless! I'm near retirement, I've done well in life and have applied this information - there is absolutely no 'financial gain' for me, but simply a desire to help you live the life you deserve. The rest is up to you.

Best of all - you can do all 12 lessons in 30 minutes!

Lesson 1: Acknowledgement of the Self

Lesson 2: You are the Sandwich Generation

Lesson 3: You Will Pay Higher Taxes

Lesson 4: Understanding Budgeting

Lesson 5: Patience – Learn to Save

Lesson 6: Build a Contingency Fund

Lesson 7: Save for Retirement Immediately

Lesson 8: Last Will & Testament

Lesson 9: Never Cash in Savings

Lesson 10: Cover All Risks

Lesson 11: Find a Professional Financial Advisor

Lesson 12: Always Remain Informed

Maybe those students who started this course and rated it low without finishing the lessons are still struggling to make ends meet? I've had comments such as, but this is 'obvious information, it's boring.' Yep, but still very few people practice it and even fewer retire well! If you're a 'know-it-all' and don't appreciate someone trying to help you for free, rather watch another course! However, if you're someone looking for GENUINE life experience from someone that only wants to help YOU make the future right financial decisions, then this could be just what you are searching for.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a financial advisor and the information in this course should not be considered as financial advice, but merely as a guidance to helping you grasp a better understanding of the factors that will affect your financial future and guide you towards making more informed decisions about everything finance related.

Who this course is for:

TedX Speaker

Known as the German with a South African accent

He is one of less than 800 professional speakers in the world to have been awarded the prestigious CSP designation by the National Speakers Association of America in July 2012.

The son of German WW2 refugees who ended up in South Africa, Wolfgang started with humble beginnings and is a true example of ‘attitude determines your future.’ He started in the entertainment industry as a magician reaching his dreams of becoming one of the world's top corporate magicians and the greatest magician in the history of the African continent. The next step was to give back and share his unique life philosophy and become an inspirational speaker at meetings & events globally. Couple this with post graduate academic qualifications, hands on experience and a mover & shaker 'can do' attitude and you have one of the most passionate communications experts in the world today.

Today he lives in Geneva, Switzerland and continues to inspire students and business delegates live and virtually throughout the world.
