About This Class

It is important to watch the entire lecture series on Personal Finance to guide yourself to financial freedom:

Class Project = We will invest $25 together into a mix of stocks and bonds. You can invest as little as $10 into this diversified portfolio that includes over 500 companies' stocks and 500 companies' bonds. How amazing is that?

It is important that you have paid off all of your high interest debt first so watch this course over debt if you have not.
