learn to invest

beginner investing teacher, Nicola Prentis

I’m Nicola and I’ll teach you how to put your money to work by demystifying investing and giving you the tools, knowledge and mindset to take charge of your finances without the help (and expense) of a financial advisor.

Educators, creators and writers like us often aren’t money-orientated people. We’re here for the love of the job, the travel, the community. I happily flitted around the world, turning a love of language and writing into paid work – low paid work.

It was great. Until it wasn’t.

Until I realised I was never going to own a house and my savings would buy me two – at most three – years of retirement. I wasn’t investing, I had no job security and the future suddenly looked a lot closer than it used to.

Does that sound familiar?

The solution is to start investing and growing savings. You won’t be rich overnight but steadily earning money from money builds passive income and security. Even if you’re doing OK financially, investing is the only way to weather crises and lay down money for the future. And the best part is, once you know the basics, it’s really not hard or scary even if you’re a beginner at investing.

What is the chilled investor course?

A 6-week, 525€ online course for beginner investors covering:

What you need to know about the stock market in order to grow your money over the long term

Why it’s not a good idea to buy individual stocks and what to invest in instead

Why there’s more to investing than the stock market and what else to invest in

How to understand risk and gain the critical psychology of investing that will set you apart from most investors

How to build a strategy that you can stick to and set yourself up for success without a financial advisor

What to look for when choosing investment products so investing doesn’t take up much of your time or brainspace

How the beginner investing course works

6 weeks of self-study video classes

2 x live consolidation/Q&A sessions

1 x 60 minute live strategy planning workshop

Downloadable worksheets to make notes as you listen

Downloadable worksheets to review concepts

525€ plus VAT if you’re in the EU

(It’s also possible to pay in 2 instalments!)

If you are burying your head in the sand about your financial future, you need this course, and the sooner you start getting stuff sorted the better. Even if, like me, you do have some pension things set up, you can still really benefit from understanding what you’re doing, and you might just find that you are handing over a fortune in fees completely unnecessarily.

It’s a brilliant course. Nicola makes complex issues easy to understand and gives you a comprehensive overview of all you need to know before investing … and more background info for anyone interested in diving deeper. I particularly liked the chilled atmosphere. We all felt comfortable asking questions and all of the questions got answered.

Chilled investors know that mindset is the #1 most crucial thing to successful investing and, by the end of the course, you’ll understand why plus have all the practical knowledge to put it all into action.
