Are you ready to create a new future?

How would you like to spend each and every day doing what you want? Well, that's what financial freedom buys!

But how do do you reach it?

Cut the confusion and overwhelm by joining the Financial Freedom Academy. If you want a step-by-step winning formula and a supportive community to motivate you on your journey to freedom,  then the Academy is for you!

You’re Ready to Build Financial Freedom … and a New Way  of Life.

The Financial Freedom Academy is the only course you will ever need to go from living paycheck to paycheck to financial freedom. And we help you unlock your dream life … you know what dream life I’m talking about ….

…A life that doesn’t require you to get the boss’s approval to take a vacation … or neglect your personal life because you have a project due at the office … or worry about paying the mortgage if your job disappears … or work until you’re dead.

We help you design a life where YOU CAN CHOOSE what to do each and every day, because after all, money isn’t a barrier.

Sounds great . . . but your reality looks like this:

  • Sunday rolls around and you know your “free” day will be filled with shopping, cooking, laundry, cleaning, yard work, and yes, preparing for another hectic week at the office. And by the time Friday night arrives, you’ll be worn out again. It feels like life is slipping through your fingers.
  • You’ve spent years climbing the ladder, but you’ve seen office politics wipe out careers before. So when the rumor mill at the office is abuzz with talks of layoffs, that knot of anxiety hits you as you wonder how you will survive without a paycheck.  
  • You played by the rules, you know those rules – go to college, get a job, build a family, buy a house, and work until you’re old and grey. But it feels like all you have to show for it are long hours at the office, debt, and “stuff.” You feel let down and dare we say, a bit disappointed.
  • You wonder who will take care of your needs as you get older, as more and more of your time is devoted to helping friends and family deal with personal and financial issues. You have nightmares that you’ll wind up as a “bag lady,” and it’s all a bit too real.
  • A really neat opportunity or adventure pops up, giving you a peek through the door of possibilities. But then, the door closes as you realize that you just don’t have the time … or the money … to try your hand at dream-chasing. After all, you have a lot of people counting on you.
  • The holidays are approaching and you’re bombarded with advertising and high expectations. You realize that you’ve been ruining your own finances to buy stuff for people who don’t need it and to impress people you don’t care about. Suddenly, you realize that all the “stuff” around you is just a trap that forces you to work longer and harder.

It feels like you’re just going through the motions of living, and it’s beginning to feel stale. Secretly, you want to stop time in its tracks and create a new life where you get to choose what to do and when. You want freedom.

You are ready to let go of the past and forge a new beginning, and you know that you want something more out of life. You want to …

  • Afford to do the things that you love the most
  • Leave the workforce on your own terms - not when the boss says so
  • Move your own health, well-being, and future to the front of the line
  • Travel and soak in the culture while you’re still able

But there’s just one little problem . . .

Well, maybe more than one. Like the size of your paycheck. The amount of your debt. The “stuff” you keep accumulating. (By the way, that’s all fixable!)

As wonderful as financial freedom sounds, learning HOW TO GET THERE requires a big learning curve, even more effort, plus discipline, and patience. And if you’re getting a late start, you’ll have to supercharge your actions.

I’m going to be real with you: Building financial freedom is anything but easy. If you’ve already taken a hard look at your finances, you know the obstacles in front of you, and it can feel overwhelming and even scary…but oh so worth it.

Why does the road to financial freedom have to be so bumpy?

  • reason  #1
  • REASON #2
  • REASON #3

There is a ton of information out there, and it’s very confusing. Even contradictory. One expert tells you to do one thing while another one says, “no way, do this.” Who are you supposed to believe? And do they have your best interest in mind, or are they just trying to recruit you into their pyramid scheme?

What if you discovered that you are not alone?

In fact, there are many people who feel just like you!

You are not alone!

52% of Americans are unhappy at work.

Almost 80% of US workers live from paycheck to paycheck.

The average American household carries over $137,000 in debt.

Over 60% of workers say they are worried about losing their job.

Half of Americans say one of their top fears is "not having enough money for the future".

Only you can take bold actions to set yourself free.

It’s time to buy your freedom!

You work hard and you’re ambitious. When you direct that same energy to your finances, you can buy your own FREEDOM.

  • The freedom to quit your high-stress job and follow your dreams.
  • The freedom to travel the world on a moment's notice.
  • The freedom to choose how to spend each and every day.
  • The freedom to sleep peacefully without money worries.

Instead of burying your dream life, you can imagine it AND build it. Bring an open mind, dreams, effort, and courage, and get ready to open the door of possibilities!

Well, I’ve been there, and I get it.

I’m a smart, ambitious woman who ran out of luck in my early 30s. And when I finally landed on my feet, I owned nothing but debt. Now I’m on the backside, staring down at respectable net worth. But I traveled alone; I didn’t have the resources, or even a mentor, to help me along. And that’s why I created the Financial Freedom Academy: the only interactive online course with a built-in community that gives you a personalized route to financial freedom.

So why sign up for a course on finances?

Maybe you’ve signed up for some personal finance courses, only to be disappointed. I know I did. To be honest, I never finished the courses - I just couldn’t sit through another talking-head video recording. So when I set out to design my course, I knew I wanted to create something unique…something FUN . . . and ACCESSIBLE . . . so that you can reach financial freedom just by putting in the effort. I want you to be EXCITED about the journey.

What makes the Academy different from other personal finance courses?

The Academy offers a simplified and straightforward process that cuts through the confusion and complexity of finances. But more importantly, Dr. Brenda integrate the psychological, social, and financial steps that will help you build a joyful and rewarding life. It's about designing a new life - money is the tool. And our approach is very hands-on and personalized (no BS). The Academy provides the support, motivation, tools, and individualized approach that is lacking from your typical talking-head finance course.

Why does the Academy cost so much?

Here's a recent headline: "The dirty little secret of online learning: Students are bored and dropping out." How many times have you paid for an online course only to be incredibly disappointed? Dr. Brenda researched the personal finance course offerings and taken a few classes herself. Mind-numbing! The Academy is unlike anything you've seen before - and it's set up so that you will actually complete it. Dr. Brenda uses radically cool software, her expertise in instructional design, and behavioral psychology to make the courses interactive, engaging, and dare we say it, FUN! We believe the Academy is one of the best investments you will ever make, because YOU WILL SEE RESULTS! 

Plus, we're into sharing the wealth. You can actually share in the profits by joining our Affiliate Program. When you sign up for the program, you'll get a unique link that you can share with others, and when someone enrolls in the Academy through your link, you get 30% of the sales price. Not a bad deal, right?

Will I have immediate access to the Academy and private Facebook community?

Yes, you will have instant access to the course. Then send us a request to join the private Facebook community. We'll admit you as soon as we can!

How long will it take me to complete the Academy?

The Academy has five units plus a bonus section. Plan to spend about two weeks per unit. Because the course is self-paced, you can go as fast or as slow as you like. However, the only way to unlock the next unit is to collect coins by completing activities. And once you've completed a unit, you can return to it any time you like. Wealth-building is a marathon, not a sprint.

What’s included in each unit?

Each unit includes interactive lessons taught by Dr. Brenda, instructional videos, a reflection activity, links to top-notch resources, fun interactive exercises, and downloads that will lead to your very own individualized action plan - a plan that reflects your circumstances, priorities, and values. Plus, each unit includes Facebook sharing activities that will keep you connected to your Academy friends through our private group. And did we mention that the course is beautifully designed, even eye-popping?

What type of technology do I need for the course?

You will need internet access and basic knowledge of how to download and print/save files. Many of the resources are in PDF so if you don’t already have Adobe Acrobat, you’ll be prompted to download it.

Do I have to have a Facebook account to join the Facebook community?

Yes. We take your privacy seriously, so we set up a PRIVATE group, which means that only Academy students can access the group and view the information.

 Should I get my family and friends to enroll?

If you know someone who would benefit from the Financial Freedom Academy, by all means invite them! You will be traveling “against the tide” as you strive toward financial freedom, and it can help if you have a partner in crime so that you can encourage one another. Keep your eyes on the prize!

 Does the Academy include specific financial advice, like what investments to pursue?

Dr. Brenda is a financial coach, but she cannot provide specific advice on investments. However, she will talk about the importance of low-fee index funds; give you suggestions on the types of accounts to use for short, medium, and long-term goals; and offer an investment planner that takes into account your timeline - and your hopes for leaving the workforce before the traditional retirement age.

 Will I get one-on-one advice from Brenda?

The Academy does not include one-on-one consultations. If you would like a more personal approach, try the Jumpstart Workshop, which includes group coaching and a one-on-one coaching session. If you would like personal financial coaching, check out Dr. Brenda's coaching programs.

 I can’t attend the “Explorer” webinars. Will they be recorded so that I can access them later?

Yes. The webinars will be recorded and as soon as they are available, we will post a notice to the private FB community. Remember, you can always submit your questions and suggestions in advance so that we can cover it in a webinar, whether you are attending or not.

How do I get my graduation cap?

We're glad that you're already thinking about graduation! The Bonus session includes an online order form. We can't wait to see you walking around in your Early Exit Academy hat!

What if I have questions while I’m going through the Academy?

If you have a question, just send an email to Dr. Brenda or a member of her team will respond as quickly as possible.
