I graduated law school in 2011 with $206k in student loan debt, knowing absolutely nothing about personal finance.
Since that time, I’ve been on a journey learning about personal finance and money. I like it so much that I left my career as an attorney to become a financial planner, and blogger (it’s what helps me pay down my debt)!
My debt changed me in profound ways. It’s because of my debt that by the age of 30, I know more about personal finance than most people at any age. It’s because of my debt that I understand how money works. It’s why I’ve been able to go from a spender to someone who controls her spending and enjoys making and saving money.
I’m sharing this with you in hopes that you can learn these same lessons I learned. And while I don’t expect you to start a personal finance blog or become a financial planner, I do hope that you’ll learn how to manage your own money.
You will certainly face financial ups and downs, and because of that, you’ll need to understand how to manage your money. In the Real Life Money Plan, you will learn how to do just that – from the very beginning.
What You’ll Learn in the “Real Life Money Plan” Course
In Real Life Money Plan, Jessi Fearon teaches you how to manage your money so it’s easy.
I like to keep things simple. In fact, if something is too complicated, it’s not for me. Money is no exception. That’s why I’m sharing this course with you – it makes managing your money easy.
If you are struggling with your budget, setting financial goals, or saving money, you can learn how to do these things in this course.
The Real Life Money Plan course is set up with six modules, where the instructor talks to you and explains exactly what you need to do to have success with your money in each area. You’ll get a workbook that correlates with each lesson, too.
Here’s a look at each of the modules in Real Life Money Plan.
1. Why Money is Important
You start the course by learning why money is important and how the views you have about money shape your financial life. Because your past experiences form how you make money decisions now, it’s so important to make sure you have a supportive money mindset before you go any further. You’ll learn how to do that in this section.
2. How to Set Financial Goals (for Beginners)
The next section teaches you exactly how to set financial goals. This will make it possible for you to achieve your financial dreams. I don’t know how you could do that without goal setting.
3. How to Budget
Once you have your financial goals in place, it’s time for you to learn how to budget. You will learn how to create a specific budget that meets your needs in order for you to meet your goals. This includes whether you are spending more than you make, have irregular income, or just don’t know how to create a budget from scratch.
Your budget is the roadmap that gets you from where you are now to where you want to go.
4. How to Save Money
In the module on saving money, you will learn how to create habits that make saving money easy (especially if you’re a spender). This is one of my favorite parts of the course because I’m naturally not a saver – I like to spend money. Thankfully, this course has awesome resources to help you learn how to save money.
5. How to Get Out of Debt
If you’re in debt, this section shows you how to get out of debt.
There are so many different methods to use to get out of debt, and this course describes several of the different methods, and which may be the right one for you.
Because getting out of debt is such an integral part to achieving financial freedom, I highly recommend this course to anyone who is in debt. It will help you stay motivated and committed to getting out of debt.
6. How to Plan for the Future (and Create a Financial Plan)
After you’ve worked through the first five modules, you will learn how to create a financial plan for your future. This is the part the course that integrates all of the previous steps and prepares you for getting in a better place financially after the course is over.
You will learn how to create a plan to manage your own finances in the future. This can help you achieve financial success. Especially if you are new to personal finance and need help getting where you want to go – this course can help you do it.
