Calendar Sep 5, 2017

Do you want to achieve financial independence and true freedom to indulge in whatever makes you happy? Do you want to live life to the fullest, while only working when you want to? Imagine how great it would be to spend all of your time doing the things that matter most to you, all the while knowing you are financially secure. Imagine a life filled with enjoyment, leisure, and satisfaction. Envision your future free from the typical 9 to 5 grind. This course will show you how. The course will also help you avoid being one of the many Americans who struggle financially. Did you know 56% of Americans retire with less than $10,000 and that many people, even rich people, live paycheck to paycheck? It does take planning, but it is attainable and the sooner you begin, the better off you will be! I know investing can be intimidating – especially if you have never done it before or know what to do. No one is born knowing how to be smart with money, and most people are not taught this at home or at school. But it is not that complicated and this course will show you how to budget, plan, and invest for a comfortable, successful retirement and future. This course covers tools that will help you set yourself up for financial success. If you follow the simple, easy to follow principles explained in this course, you will achieve success.
