Instructor Biography

Khari Parker, Real Estate Mentor, Investor & Best Selling Author

My passion is teaching people about financial literacy and making money.

Whether it's online or in-person, I get joy and satisfaction from helping others to learn more about managing their personal finances. I authored the Amazon best selling book titled “The Lost Curriculum: What School Didn't Teach Us About Personal Finance".

In this book I teach how to generate an income, budget, save, invest, pay down debt and to retire comfortably. My ultimate goal is to teach students across the world, the financial principles that I wrote about in my book. Udemy has provided the perfect platform for me to achieve this goal.

My background

I come from a technical/engineering background (BS/MS in Engineering/IT), so you will notice in my courses that I tend to do a lot of heavy analysis. Additionally, I have an MBA, so I will also place a heavy emphasis on methods that you can use to generate and create profit in your day-to-day life or in your business.

My experience

For over the past decade, as an owner of a successful real estate company, I have had the opportunity to fix and flip real estate deals, while also working a 9-5. The knowledge that I give in my courses come from first hand experience and I teach methods based off of what has allowed me to make money in real estate. In addition to real estate, I teach personal finance and stock education. My writing has appeared in financial blogs, print magazines and widely known financial news sources such as Yahoo! Finance & MSN Money.

Overall, I am very happy to be an instructor on Udemy and I absolutely love the opportunity to teach others about a number of financial topics. If you are interested in learning more about how understanding personal finance & real estate can make you extra money, check out my courses and enroll today!
