About This Class

It's not about how much money you spend, it's how you spend it.

Money can buy happiness and this course presents the six key principles of achieving that.

9cd97f1a

You've heard before that money does not buy happiness. According to research in psychology, whoever told you this just doesn't know how to spend well. 

While just having more money does not make you a happier person automatically, you can make conscious choices about the ways you spend. Most people, however, don't understand the science of happiness, how to increase and maintain it. Don't be that person!

   Will this extra cash, I'm buying myself something nice. Instant happiness!

   4.99 for express shipping is not much, and I'll get it here tomorrow. Worth it!

   I'll just eat my cookies all at once, that'll make me the happiest person on Earth. 

All three are wrong and in the course, we discuss better ways to spend. 

This course brings together decades of scientific research from the fields of Psychology, Behavioural Economics and Neuroscience. The course is built on dozens of peer-reviewed scientific reports and studies - that means you don't need to go read those hundreds of pages by yourself! (You certainly can, if you want though. Attached to this course is the complete references list and all resources are cited in the videos.) There is so many "experts" out there, promoting unverified, made-up and phoney advice. You won't find that here - only research from the field's top minds in an easy to digest form. 

Each section has an assignment - actionable tips and tools to get you the greatest happiness boost the next time you open your wallet. 

Money is an opportunity to have happier life, but most people don't have the tools and knowledge to maximise this opportunity. Don't be that person! Allow yourself to be happier and learn the science of how to buy happiness. 

Sample student reviews:

 "The course is well structured and the explanations are clear. I've gotten few surprising insights right away! Especially the part of experiences was very interesting."

 "Wonderful, eye-opening course. I appreciate that every claim is backed by a research study!"

It's time to get serious about happiness. I'll see you in the course!

My cameras pay for my cameras

Currently living in Sydney, Australia, I split my time between research, university teaching and photography.

I've been selling my photos online for 7 years now - starting this side gig was one of my best decisions. Ever since, my cameras and lenses pay for themselves, and for my flight tickets. I'm excited to share with you, how you can do the same!
