What is the aim of this course?
No matter how much you earn it’s not easy to build wealth. The money you earn somehow magically disappears although it seems to you that you have been quite frugal. On top of that, it’s difficult to make certain tradeoffs in life where you have to spend money: Should you cook on your own or buy prepared food? Is it better to rent an apartment or buy your own? Should you go for MBA or not? We are not taught at school to make rational decisions and manage our money and wealth. Luckily, there are a lot of nice management consulting tools, techniques, and frameworks that will help you spend less, be more efficient, earn money and generate additional income. You don’t have to go to a top consulting firm to learn them. You can master them by taking my course.
This course will help you drastically improve your skills in managing money and making more rational choices using management consulting tools, techniques, and frameworks. If you have a specific problem just let me know and I will give you tips on how to solve it using the tools presented in this course.
The course is designed for people who want to become more data-driven and less emotional in the way they manage money and make decisions related to money. Thanks to the course you will be making better decisions and you will learn techniques that will help you faster build your wealth. In the course you will learn 6 main things:
How to spend less money
How to make sure that you spend money on the right things
How to be more productive, work faster, and more efficiently
How to earn more money
How to generate additional revenue streams
How to invest wisely your money
This course is based on my 15 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting firms and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, performance improvement, and turn-arounds in the biggest firms in Retail, FMCG, SMG, and B2B, and services sectors that I worked for. I have carried out or supervised over 90 different performance improvement projects in different industries that generated in total 2 billion of additional EBITDA. On the basis of what you will find in this course, I have trained in person over 100 consultants, business analysts, and managers who now are Partners in PE and VC funds, Investment Directors and Business Analysts in PE and VC, Operational Directors, COO, CRO, CEO, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members, etc. On top of that my courses on Udemy were already taken by more than 134 000 students including people working in EY, Walmart, Booz Allen Hamilton, Adidas, Naspers, Alvarez & Marsal, PwC, Dell, Walgreens, Orange, and many others.
I teach through case studies, so you will have a lot of lectures showing examples of analyses, and tools that we use. To every lecture, you will find attached (in additional resources) the Excels as well as additional presentations, and materials shown in the lectures so as a part of this course you will also get a library of ready-made analyses that can, with certain modifications, be applied by you or your team in your work.
Why did I decide to create this course?
Personal finance boils down to applying relatively simple rules in practice. Most courses make those rules look too complicated and don’t provide a structured approach to wealth building and managing your money. This course will fill in this gap and will help you learn the things you need to know to manage well your money and time. On top of that, you will learn a lot of advanced management consulting techniques, tools, and frameworks that will help you save money and time as well as earn more.
Management consulting techniques can help you immensely with the way you manage your money. By putting those tools and techniques in one course and explaining them using real-life examples related to everyday life, I wanted to make this knowledge available to everybody that wants to make better decisions, especially when it comes to money.
Things you will find in this course will improve your awareness and skills in analyzing problems that you will be facing. You will learn how to spend less, earn more and how invest your money and time wisely. I will also share with you a lot of productivity hacks that will help you be more efficient. You will learn how to make better choices when it comes to spending money, based on analysis in Excel.
To sum it up, I believe that if you want to make better decisions, manage your money efficiently and build your wealth faster, you should master the techniques presented in this course. That is why I highly recommend this course to all students that want to build their wealth faster.
