Why choose this course?

I am just a normal guy who has been extremely passionate about my own personal finance since I was 17. When I was 17 I began meticulously budgeting and that is also the year I moved into a place of my own due to my extreme thirst for independence. I now and have many years experience of budgeting and planning my own personal finances. My parents weren't rich and I grew up lower-middle class. I didn't have things given to me growing up and learned the value of a dollar early on in life. I am just a regular guy with extraordinary skills at mastering my own finances.

My friends have asked in the past how I can afford to be investing and taking vacations at such a young age. It's not because I make a lot more money than them, it's because I have more financial knowledge than them. I have enjoyed teaching them the basics of personal finance and that is what led me to create this course, my love for teaching others how to take the proper actions to get on top of their finances. I created this course because it pains me to see so many others struggle with their finances because of terrible financial decisions that seem to be the social norm. I believe everyone should know how to be the master of their finances, not the other way around. This course is my way of taking action toward that goal. If you want to take the first steps toward financial stability and setting yourself up for success then you absolutely must take this course!
