Description

At the end of this course you will know exactly how to invest and manage your money to become very wealthy and retire rich.  Effective money management allow us to invest: to use the time value of money and the historical up trend of the market to ensure real money returns!

The earlier you start, the more wealthy you become - so don't wait, start now!  You don't need a 6 figure job or even a college degree.  A janitor that recently passed away was worth $8 Million to the shock of everyone that knew him.  How?  Money management and the stock market!  Literally anyone, including YOU, can do it!

Effective money management and the market are the way you can absolutely achieve your financial goals!  Whether that be becoming a millionaire (we'll talk a lot about that!), having two homes in retirement, a luxury sports car, whatever!  

This course is great for anyone at any level, but it is geared toward younger (millennial) generations, as they have the most time to benefit from this information.  The retirement account type lesson is geared toward American students but covers how much to save and in what investments regardless of nationality!  Non-US citizens can still apply the money management concepts and much of the investing principles outlined in the course.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone seeking to build wealth and retire rich
  • This is geared toward younger generations as they have time on their side
  • All but one single lesson applies internationally (the exception is the types of retirement account lesson)

Engineer by day, money wizard, investor, & writer by night!

I'm a US Air Force developmental engineer with both a Bachelor and Master degrees in engineering.  I have three passions: everything science and technology related, helping others, and learning, teaching, and crunching money numbers!  It's kind of strange hobby, I know.  It is an interest of mine that I'd like to share with you!

Why I'm qualified to teach these courses: I'm 28 and have no debt besides a mortgage and I've achieved six figures in investments.  I'm on the Adviser Panel for USAA Bank.  I've published a book about money management on Amazon, I'm an active investment blogger, and have built a plethora of Excel tools for managing money!  I also teach friends and family about effective money management and investing so that they too can become wealthy!
