About This Class

Class Description

This class is for people who know nothing about the stock market and wish they did. This class will cover basic concepts, financial jargon, and why investing is critcal to your long term financial security. 

This class is for people who like to under how to leverage dividends as a powerful investment strategy. This class does not require extensive stock market knowledge. However, a grasp of the basics will make the class easier to understand. 

The first lesson will cover basic aspects of the dividend including:

1. The official definition

2. How companies, the stock, and dividends are related and how they work

3. The critical information you need to know to be successful in managing your dividends

The second lesson will cover the three questions I always ask myself before buying any dividend-paying stock:

This lesson is key to choosing stocks that will return passive income in the long term.

Whenever, creating classes or giving advice about investing, I always warn that this is a way to generate passive income in addition to your regular income (ie. your job).

Contrary to popular belief, most retail investors (mom and pop investors like you and me) cannot support themselves or their families solely on investing.

HOWEVER, you will be surprised at the amount of money you can generate if you are these three things:

  1. Patient
  2. Disciplined
  3. Knowledgeable

I grew my own stock portfolio by using this approach and avoiding 'Get Rich Quick' schemes --I don't believe in them.
