There is only one person responsible for your financial health: you. Become the CFO for your life. Most people live their lives unconscious or uncomfortable about money. We'll explore the hidden assumptions of consumption and debt in our capitalist system and help you reclaim ownership of how you spend your time + your energy. Financial independence gives you the chance to live a fully honest and authentic life. It doesn't matter how much money you make, $20,000 or $400,000, this course will help you feel in control of your life and live according to your aspirations, priorities, and realities. In class, you'll write your financial manifesto and make a plan on how to execute it. Topics include budgeting, investing, and how intimate relationships affect the way you treat money.

This is in partnership with the Wayfinding Academy.

Week 1 Morning Session: Understanding Money
We'll start with a simple idea: the personal savings rate and how it affects how many years you have to work. We'll discuss our internal assumptions about money and how they dramatically influence our lives. 

Week 1 Afternoon Session: Minding the Gap: Consumption + Income
Taking control of your financial situation means controlling two basic things: your spending + your production. We'll talk about the profound implications behind taking control of both.

Week 2 Morning Session: Writing Your Manifesto and Making a Plan
An oppressive system requires the consent of the governed. We'll talk about yours. No matter where you are on the path, working towards financial independence means taking back control of your life. This session will be about the nuts-and-bolts of financial independence. How are you going to achieve it, what obstacles do you anticipate + what are some ways to address them? We'll make a 1 year, 5 year, and long term financial plan that truly reflects your aspirations, priorities, and realities.

Week 2 Afternoon Session: Investing
This last session will be a Q&A and discussion of investing. We’ll about creating passive income, types of investments, risk and return, and other important concepts in investing for the future. 


"This class was great! It really helped me to re examine and re create my relationship to money. I'm totally inspired now to think and learn about money, and am starting to save and invest in the future that means the most to me. Douglas was an excellent instructor. He is a living example of financial freedom, and was an skilled facilitator, guide, and advisor during the process. Take this class! It's the best investment (in your dreams) that you'll ever make." - Dan D.


"The Financial Freedom course changed my perspective on money and removed a lot of mental and emotional barriers I was having to taking control of my financial life, as well as providing me with a lot of practical information. Highly recommend!" - Kronda A.
