What is this course all about?

How to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock Market is an online, video-based training program that teaches beginners to become confident investors and build their wealth over the long-run.

This course will help you to set, create, and implement a simple, long-term investing plan whether you are a complete beginner who is overwhelmed with how to start to invest, have some experience but have been disappointed with the results, or have considerable experience but feel overloaded and want to simplify things. 

How does this course work?

The Build Your Wealth course consists of four modules and takes about 4 hours to complete. Each module contains video lessons that will walk you through what you need to know to start investing.

We teach in short blocks of content. Each lesson starts with a learning outcome statement and ends with a summary of what you have learned to help you better retain the material. In this course, your knowledge will build progressively, so you must finish each lesson before moving on to the next. Each chapter is capped off with a short 3-5 question multiple-choice quiz to assure you are ready for the next lesson.

When you sign up for the course, you will receive a course checklist that will guide you to success. You will also receive other handouts that are quick reference guides to help you bring the principles into your life.

When you finish all the modules, you will get access to the Facebook membership group, which will allow you to contact me at any time. I do weekly Q&A Facebook Live sessions and encourage all my students to reach out with any questions. You get lifetime access to all the course materials so you can always go back and review prior lessons. Also, your lifetime membership allows you to have access to any newly added material.
