Module 1: Understanding Your Values + Goals

Financial goal-setting is the key to building wealth. Before you dive into the nitty gritty sections of the course, you'll lay out all your values and goals — for this year and into the future. When do you want to retire? Do you want to buy a house? Do you want to pay off your debt? This module will help you answer these questions and more.

Module 2: Budgeting + Saving

Budgeting is one of the least popular, but most important parts of personal finance. We take the guesswork out of budgeting with our comprehensive budgeting worksheet as well as advice on the best saving methods for your individual circumstances.

Module 3: Dealing with Debt

If you're in debt, you're not alone. The average American has $38,000 of non-mortgage debt. This module is all about creating a plan to conquer debt — from student loan payments to credit cards.

Module 4: The Basics of Credit

We break down any mysteries behind credit — what it is, why you need it, and how it’s calculated — as well as give you some actionable steps to start building good credit, whether you're starting from scratch or working on boosting your score.

Module 5: Investing

Investing can seem intimidating upfront, but it's a great way to build your wealth and plan for retirement. We unpack common investment accounts and the pros and cons of each — giving you concrete steps to take if you're ready to start investing.

We know financial education can sometimes make you feel like you've completely f*cked up and there's no way to dig yourself out. This course is different. Wherever you are in your financial journey, you are welcome here.

We built our online course for real people with real questions about money. We know what it's like to graduate with student loan debt up to your eyeballs. We've been in our late twenties with no retirement funds to speak of. We've had unexpected circumstances come up and charged $$$ on our credit cards. 

Every financial experience is different. But remember: you're not alone and it's never too late. Build your confidence and take charge of your money. Create a debt plan. Reinvent your budget. Boost your savings. Build your wealth. It all starts here.

No Judgements. Ever.
