We’re proud to announce the official launch of our comprehensive Marriage Money Bootcamp course! Starting last year, our team has been working hard putting together the content, producing lectures, worksheets, interviews, etc. Here’s a look back on the impetus for the course.
Richard first told me about the idea of a course tailored to newlyweds sometime in early 2017. Richard, a CFP® with his own private practice, mentioned that he was noticing a trend of people stepping into his office that were in the “newlywed” stage and had tons of questions and enthusiasm to learn about how to manage their finances with the impending life change.
While these people had mentioned a clear interest in setting up a good financial foundation for their commitment to their significant other, many of them were not quite in a position or comfortable paying the cost of an engagement with a certified financial planner.
When trying to find some more reasonably priced educational options that couples could use, there was not much to really point them to. Outside of a few obsolete and incomplete books available on amazon, and a ton of noisy and conflicting, if not flat out wrong, info on the general web - there didn’t seem to be anything he could confidently offer.
So, at this point we started having a few conversations and outlining a general idea of what would end up being what the comprehensive course looks like today. Our team (Richard, Trevor and I) drew up a basic outline of what we thought the course should entail, interviewed people in our target market, and purchased about every tangentially related book and materials and became experts in the subject matter.
We had a complimentary mix of different backgrounds (mine in software engineering and other roles at a few startups and Trevor and Richard’s in various financial disciplines), but we were all new to the idea of full-on producing video content. With some helpful encouragement and advisement from Chris Haroun, who’s been quite a success with his Udemy based business courses, we trial and error’d our way to what the course looks like today.
So… What is it?
So what does the course entail? It’s a mix of educational video lectures, spreadsheet walkthroughs, interviews with experts in related domains (like with a marriage family therapist, and plans to interview a divorce attorney in the near future), and a powerful comprehensive workbook that has professionally built spreadsheet templates with built in formulas so that you can get real answers based on things like your personal income. Optionally, we’re offering a video chat consultation for anyone who is looking to ask direct questions to a certified professional in the field
This comprehensive course is ideal for those in a new relationship starting to plan for their future, or coming across one of those major points in life were some education and planning is merited and can go a long way (purchasing a home, dealing with debt, planning for kids, etc.). You don't have to go at it alone.
We believe this course is the easiest, most expedited and cost effective solution for couples who are committed to building their financial future together.
For anyone who is interested, we offer a 100% money back guarantee. If you have any questions whatsoever, don't hesitate to reach out to us.
