Description

JOIN 1,700+ STUDENTS LEARNING HOW TO LIVE ON LESS THAN $25,000 PER YEAR (AND ENJOY DOING IT)!

In this course, I'll be teaching you the exact methods that I used to live on less than $25,000 per year for over 5 years, allowing me to get out of $25,000 of debt, save up 5 years of living expenses and quit my job to start my own business.

What is my experience on the topic?

I've been tracking my finances for over 5 years with the free financial software Mint. In doing so, I've been able to cut my lifestyle to just $25,000 per year (which I've been living on for over 5 years) and pay off my debt, save up a big pile of money and quit my job to start my own business. I now have a location independent online business that allows me to work from anywhere and still make a comfortable living.

Who is this course for?

It's for the person who's looking to spend less money so they can get ahead. It's right for the person who is willing to make big changes in order to succeed financially. It's for you if you have big things you want to do with your life and need financial padding to do so (which is most of us)!

Who is this course NOT for? This course isn't for people who won't let go of being materialistic. It's not for people who don't have big dreams and it's definitely NOT for people who aren't willing to put in tons of work and sacrifice to make financial freedom a reality.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for the person who's looking to spend less money so they can get ahead
  • This course is for the person looking to get themselves out of debt
  • This course is right for the person who is looking to live on less than $25,000 per year
  • This course is right for the person who is willing to make big changes in order to succeed financially
  • This course is NOT right for the person who isn't willing to put in lots of hard work
  • This course is NOT right for the person who isn't willing to make cuts to their spending
