This is about getting started when you don't know where to start. It answers the question, "What do I do to start?" It's better than the advice I was given by my bank. They told me to wait. I missed out on Google, Amazon, Netflix, and others through their advice. I decided I wouldn't miss out on Facebook when their IPO launched. That's where I learned how much I was missing.
This training is basic enough to address those Frequently Asked Questions about getting started while detailed enough to answer the questions so that you can act on them. Second, it starts with getting your financial house in order to make sure you can sustainably afford to invest.
When this training refers to “the rest of us,” it is referring to those of us who did not grow up with the habit of investing, the goal of wealth creation, and the experience of legacy. This training is for people who are looking to make their first $100,000 not their next million.
While some financial trainers are telling you not to get into debt, and not to take risks. They are neglecting to tell you how some of the richest and most successful people who CAME FROM NOTHING used debt and risk to their advantage.
The course explains the basic terminology for stock investing, online trading services, and how to inform yourself about purchases. It's everything you need to know, but have been misinformed about. Even clients who had family members invested have benefited from the explanations provided in this course.
The course is structured into lessons including the all-important:
Overcoming risk and fear with knowledge of investment options.
Ensuring a solid financial foundation.
Explanation of ways to make money in the stock market.
Exploring trading services.
Pinpointing the costs of creating a stock trading account.
Reading stock information, evaluating companies, and staying up to date on with stock buying information and insights.
Determining an investment strategy that works for YOU.
Take this course because you realize that your money could be making money for you.

A brief case study about one financial coaching client who was excited about investing but did not have her financial house in order. The introduction highlights some typical ways we utilize money without plans and priorities.
Describes two of the ways that we waste money through our poor understanding of the meaning and implementation of Saving and Financial Viability. Credit can be a way to "save" money from being spent unnecessarily. Managing debt-to-income will result in less money going to service debt.
Discusses how do you get started with trading including what websites you may choose from. The considerations in your choice are preference, type of investor you are, review of fees, and tools available. The lesson also defines some of the terms expected on the trading service portals.
I noticed Robin Hood from advertisements and a couple of friends and decide to try it out. I walk you through with me as I open the site for the first time and register to use it. Notice that you don't always need to know everything as you prepare to invest on a platform. Read and understand what you are getting into.
My first purchase went through. I show you how the process was and what happens when you purchase on a day the market is closed. In this case, I purchased on Saturday. Note also that Robin Hood asked some additional questions I did not include in the video. Most were repeats of the registration questions.
