Course Description

This course consists of small lessons with interactive videos and fun assignments to help you retain the information. You will learn to change your relationship with money - for good. Your money should work for you - you should NOT be working for your money. You will learn my personal finance mantra “earn, save, repeat, and ball occasionally!” I will help you address your need for instant gratification and conquer that demon! I will teach you the REAL difference between needs and wants and how to categorize them in your monthly financial budget. I will share my favorite types of bank accounts, budgeting tools, and beginner investment vehicles with you. And most importantly, I will guide you to the path of discovering and accepting your new personal financial normal.
