  • All people interested in purchasing a Tesla are welcome.


If you are thinking of purchasing a Tesla, this is the class you need to make the best choices before you spend a lot of money leasing or buying your new car.

In this class, you will learn how to evaluate which Tesla model is right for you and then select which version or configuration of that model will provide you the most benefit for the least amount of money.

I'll also cover some of the other items you will need to think about before you place the order for your car. It's very important that we discuss charging options and figure out which strategy is right for you.

You will have a class project to create a guide that will give you a roadmap on how to make your purchase a exciting and painless experience.

I'll also give you a number of resource documents to help guide you through the process. By the end of the class, you will be able to move forward with confidence and intention.

This class is for all levels and of course it would be helpful if you’ve already owned a car before or you already hold a driver’s license. Otherwise, just grab a friend to lean on.

My name is Steve Rhode and I’m a writer, educator, firefighter, pilot, photographer and also a proud Tesla owner.

When you finish this class, I feel confident you will be well prepared to comfortably start the process to purchase your very own Tesla and begin to enjoy the benefits of owning an electric vehicle.

Who this course is for:

  • People thinking of ordering a Tesla to buy or lease.
  • People interested in electric vehicles.

I always struggle with what to say about myself.

Let’s start with my life motto: If you do good things, good things happen.

I’ve tried to live my life that way. The overarching theme to all that I do is to help others with actionable results.

As a public safety pilot I fly drones and an airplane for fire and police departments to help people in trouble.

As a consumer debt advisor I give people free help and advice to deal with difficult financial problems.

You get the idea.

From pilot, to debt expert, to journalist and more. My life is varied and difficult to put into one neat bucket.

The one location that probably has the most information about my life timeline is my LinkedIn profile.
