What some of our students have said:

“The Build Your Wealth course helped me unwind my mind from all those complexities of getting started in the stock market. Before, I felt so overwhelmed having to look for suitable individual stocks to invest in because researching a market is so time-consuming. But this course simplified investing and made me understand about ETFs. It helped me focus on what matters.”

Nur Syafiqah Mohd Afandi

“As a total amateur to the stock market, the Build Your Wealth course helped me gain informative and crucial knowledge of managing my investments. Dr. Stotz's style of teaching is simple and easy to follow. I appreciate him making the course personal by using examples of his nieces, sisters, and parents as his lessons' reference points. Overall, the course helped me get over the initial hesitation of shifting my money from my savings account into a growing investment account.”

Hamsyalekha Rajendran

“Stock market investing cannot be simpler than this! Whether you know nothing about the stock market or are a finance professional, it is hard to disagree with Dr. Stotz in the Build Your Wealth course. He created a super simple finance plan that can help you avoid cognitive biases, maximize your investment return by minimizing risk and trading fees. It is so simple that anyone can implement it.”

Maria Clarissa Fionalita

“The Build Your Wealth course has given me leverage to understand stocks, keeping a winning mindset, and it also cleared previous doubts I had about the stock market.”

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.

Is this course right for me?

If you want to learn a simple, step-by-step process to invest for the long-term, core investing concepts that most people don’t know, and a proven, easy-to-implement investing strategy for your future savings, the Build Your Wealth course is for you! Our typical students fall into one of these categories:

Iris, Doctor

Veteran doctor overwhelmed with the idea of starting to invest

Though a veteran doctor, Iris knew nothing about stocks. She wanted to learn how to get the cash in her bank invested in the stock market. She wasted hours on end with books, blogs, and videos but always ended up feeling overwhelmed. A Facebook post brought her to the Build Your Wealth course, which took her through a step-by-step process, teaching her how to open her first investment account and start investing. Receiving the encouragement and support of Dr. Stotz, Iris has now become comfortable managing her investment account, has built a solid foundation of wealth, and is finally in control of her financial future.

Dawn, Marketing Director

Disappointed investor who has faced investment loss

Dawn was a marketing director who collapsed in tears after losing her life savings in a forex trading scam. Crushed by disappointment, she was ready to give up on her dream of financial independence. Dawn came across an interview with Dr. Stotz. After learning about his 30 years of experience, she trusted that he could show her how to invest in the stock market properly. In the Build Your Wealth course, she learned how to create a financial plan and distinguish between scams and investment plans. Dr. Stotz inspired her to persist in her quest despite having lost her life savings once before. She knew, if she didn’t take action now, she would never achieve financial freedom. Today Dawn invests in the stock market every month using the strategy learned in the course. From disappointment to confidence, she is on the highway to financial independence.

Omar, Young CEO

Experienced investor overloaded with financial advice

Omar is a young CEO who was overwhelmed by all the conflicting investment strategies he tried to follow. Fear crept up. Omar knew he could lose all that he worked for if he didn't simplify his investment method. Omar's business partner recommended taking the Build Your Wealth course. The course taught Omar a simple yet effective investment strategy, and shortly after completion, he started building his retirement fund, which guaranteed that he wouldn't lose all his money. Omar now understands the power of patience and maintaining a simple investment strategy. Following the plan he learned from the Build Your Wealth course, he is confident that he will retire in style.

Frequently asked questions

Get all your questions answered!

  • What is the refund policy? Can I cancel at any time?

    Some people ask us why we make it so easy for our students to get a refund. The answer is that it motivates us to make our material cutting edge and to make sure that we deliver more than what you expected. We have a 30-day, no-questions-asked, money-back guarantee. We don’t want your money if you’re not satisfied. Once in the course, you can request your refund at any time within 30 days. I know what you are thinking, “Could I sign up, download all the content, and then ask for a refund?” The answer is, “Yes.” But despite that, we get almost no refund requests because our students feel the value they get (plus, they don’t want to lose access to the Facebook group, where all the magic happens!).

  • Will I earn a certificate of completion?

    You will earn a certificate of completion at the end of the course. You will also get instructions on how you can add a certificate of completion on your LinkedIn page. And if you wish, you can also apply to get a personal recommendation on your LinkedIn directly from your teacher, Dr. Andrew Stotz.

  • Can I email the instructor if I have questions?

    Once you are in the class, you will have direct access to your teacher, Dr. Andrew Stotz and his team. You will be able to contact them through email, Facebook Messenger, and even video if needed. We created this course because we have a passion for helping our students succeed, so don’t worry, we will always be available for you.

  • I am a high school student, can I join?

    You are ABSOLUTELY welcome! We all wish we had started learning at an earlier age! Dr. Stotz has worked hard to make the material easy-to-understand, so you should have no problem. All you need to do is put your heart into it and we will make sure that you get all the value we have to offer!

  • I don't have time for this course

    I feel the same when I consider buying online courses, so I brought this course down to four hours of easily understandable content. Take a weekend to finish it, and it will prepare you for a lifetime of investing. I understand you are busy; I am too. But don't end up like one of my students who missed the power of compounding because he started too late. The only sure-fire way to build wealth in the stock market is to leave your money in the market for a long time (Warren Buffet has left his money in for almost 70 years!) Taking this course can help you for the rest of your life. Consider that US$1,000 today is equal to about US$10,000 in 30 years; that’s 10x the amount. But to get this, you've got to get that US$1,000 in the stock market now. Don’t take my word for it; here’s what one of my students had to say: “The Build Your Wealth course is a clear and concise course on how to start your investing journey.” - Lin Tan
