While my friends in high school were playing video games and planning what movie to see on Friday night, I was planning my next business venture. By the age of 18, I had already owned and operated five successful companies, saving enough money to nearly pay for college on my own.
I was fortunate enough to attend one of the top public business programs in the country, where I dedicated four years to fine-tuning my skills in finance and business management. For each of those thrilling college years, I had budgeted down to the dollar how much money I would spend each semester (including the "social" expenses), and frequently helped friends do the same. Who wouldn't love seeing their bank account balance six months in advance?
Although receiving a full-time offer from Amazon after completing a leadership internship with them, I discovered my true passion lies within consulting. There's no better feeling at the end of the day than knowing you've helped a company grow, and working for the top consulting firm in the middle-market has given me the incredible opportunity to make a difference on a weekly basis.
My course materials will not only cover the core fundamentals of business, broken down into concepts so simple that even children could understand, but also include all of my personal Excel workbooks and programs (such as Quicken) that I've developed to help me along the way. These include everything from an in-depth pricing tool when buying a car (saving me roughly 20% on mine), to a simple-yet-effective budget to use when planning your next 6 months.
While I may seem younger than the average finance instructor, which always seem to be in their early-60's (mad respect to you baby-boomers out there still teaching), I can promise that you'll finish these courses suddenly excited about finance and ready to start watching those bank accounts grow. You'll be pumped to take charge of your financial freedom, or you can have that hard-earned money back.
