Welcome to Personal Finance Fundamentals

Take control over life's toughest decisions

In every major decision in life, there will be the question that you will always ask yourself... "Can I afford it?"

People often have fantastic ambitions and are full of energy to pursue challenges that will change their life and the world. The greatest things holding them back are the daunting questions of affordability:

  • Can I afford to go to school?
  • Can I afford that new apartment
  • Can I afford to try a new career and move to a new city?

Learning the fundamentals of personal finance will help you know when you can and when you cannot afford something.

Better yet, a strong understanding of personal finance will give you the freedom to spend your life the way you want.

Simplify Personal Finance

It doesn't need to be complicated. You will be able to take control of your life and grow your wealth more than ever before.

In this course, we take you from zero understanding of personal finance to a confident financial decision-maker.
