About the ‘Achieving Financial Independence’ course
Q. What is the ‘Achieving Financial Independence’ course going to do for me?
A. It will guide you through how to develop your own plan to become financially independent.
If you follow your plan, you will reach a point where work becomes a choice rather than a necessity. It’s a beautiful place to be. The practical skills we cover will help you to:
- Feel confident about the different investment options available and know which ones you want to use.
- Pick a strategy that fits your mindset so you can sleep well at night. f Make peace with any bad experiences you’ve had with money, then adjust your plan to avoid repeats.
- Get your children started on the path to financial independence early in life (they’ll thank you for it later!)
If thinking about money causes you stress, you need this course. It’s as simple as that.
Q. How do I access the course content?
A. The course is available to paying members only. When you sign up and pay for a membership, you should automatically receive an email containing your log in details for the member portal on our website within 24 hours. Log in as per the instructions in the email. The course content you have purchased will be ready and waiting for you. You can access all content for the level you’ve purchased immediately.
Q. What format is the content in?
A. Each module contains a video tutorial, accompanied by tapescripts for those who prefer to read and an audio version for those who prefer to listen only.
The curriculum is accompanied by two workbooks – one for adults and one for children. These are in editable PDF format so you can save a copy to your hard drive and fill it out electronically or you can print them out and work on the hard copy if you prefer. Throughout the course, we will refer you to the relevant activities in the workbooks.
In case mathematics is not your strong point and to help with the more complex calculations, we have included Microsoft Excel spreadsheets for you to use. Again, we will refer to these during the tutorials.
Q. What tools, equipment and prior knowledge do I need?
A. You will require:
- Access to a computer
- An internet connection that allows you to watch video
- Microsoft Excel or similar
- Primary/elementary school level mathematics
