Let Dolan Ingraham (financial literacy instructor, taught by multi-millionaire Paul Orfalea) teach you how to manage your finances, grow your wealth, and have your money work for you – even if you’re starting out with little or no money or knowledge.

The truth is, most of us are starved for time, freedom, or security, because of a lack of money.

That is, we have enough to get by – but only because we have to work 9-5 jobs, doing what a boss tells us to do, selling our time, so we can earn a living. (Or doing pretty much the same thing while in school – just not getting paid for it. Does that sound about right?)

All this, when we’d rather be spending time with loved ones, or pursuing our passions.

Honestly, it’s not your fault. I’m speaking particularly to any students right now, when I say this:

Our school system is a relic from an industrial economy, where our society needed to churn out factory workers with basic skills, that followed directions and worked long hours.

In other words – and I cannot emphasize this enough – our school system did not teach you to be financially successful.

(Sorry if that sounds harsh.)

Maybe a part of you already suspected that. I hate to say it, but it’s the truth.

Anyway, frankly, it doesn’t sit well with me. So that’s where I come in.

In this course, you’ll learn powerful financial concepts that weren’t taught to you at school, but probably should have been.

Before I get into specifics (in about 5 seconds), let me pose one question – particularly for any young adults out there – for you to ponder:

Would you like to have the option to not have to work for your money?

(To be able to keep working if you want, but always have enough wealth to the point where you could walk away from your job at any time?)

By the end of this class, I’m going to equip you with every skill I have, to make that a reality.

You’ll not only have your own portfolio growing and compounding, but you’ll also be savvy with regard to:

  • Banking (earning 70 times the interest most people make in savings accounts)

  • Credit cards – and how to ethically “hack” your credit score and beat credit companies at their own game – and why it’s so important

  • Budgeting (designed to be extremely user-friendly for those who hate budgeting)

  • Mindset shifts regarding money that are simple yet highly effective, designed to increase your wealth

  • Investing – including stocks and tactics to greatly reduce your risk, as well as how to ACTUALLY get started NOW, even if you don’t think you have enough money or knowledge to be an “investor”

  • BONUS: Exclusive, Lifetime Group Member Access to me and to other members of the course, so we can all continue to help each other out, long after you finish the course

  • And More  – from specific tips of how your accounts should flow to investments that you should avoid

I want to equip you with the foundations to achieve financial security, and ultimately financial freedom (having enough money to the point where you don’t HAVE to work, if you don’t want to).

Now if you’re anything like me, a few seconds ago you read the word “investing” and immediately thought “nope, that can’t be for me.” Immediate knee-jerk thoughts are usually something like:

  • “I don’t have enough money; you have to have money to make money

  • “I don’t know enough – where on earth would I even start?

  • “what if I don’t get enough guidance and I mess up and lose money???”

Here’s the deal.

FIRST of all, the entire game of investing has changed over the past few years. Today, you DON’T need to have more than a few dollars to start, you DON’T need a “stock broker,” and you can do it all from your phone, so it’s never been easier for anyone to get started.

And SECOND: I personally promise to hold your hand – and walk you through – each step of the way.

I mean, even if you know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about the topic right now, I will walk you through each tiny little baby step and make it extremely easy for you to get started. This is my personal promise to you.

(Honestly, I HATE when teachers leave me with unanswered questions, don’t walk me through everything, or in any way leave me feeling stupid. Has that ever happened to you? That teacher’s doing a bad job. And that’s unacceptable.)

If you still don’t understand something after a “teacher” has “taught” it to you: It’s not your fault, it’s theirs.

Anyway, I will never do that to you.

(I’ll never leave you with unanswered questions, or feeling stupid.)

I personally promise to be here for you every step of the way.

So yes, the possibility of you becoming an investor in a few days is very real. You can literally have your money start making money for you, in a few days.

And then yes, this fear:


That’s a scary thought. When we worry about things, we tend to think in black and white like that…

And then we do nothing.

(Which is usually much worse than at least trying.)

Most of us don’t really know what we’re doing when it comes to managing our money… So sometimes people are worried that if they try to learn themselves, they’ll somehow “mess it all up.”

Here’s the truth: you won’t lose all your money.

And there are two reasons you won’t.

1.) I’ll teach you exactly how to put as much of your money as you want into absolutely safe investments.

(You get to choose how aggressive you want to be. You get to CHOOSE how much risk you want to take on.)

If you want to play it safe, and be assured to lose nothing – you can do that.

If you want to take on a bit more risk, for the possibility of higher reward – you can do that.

2.) There is a section of the course purely devoted to teaching risk mitigation techniques – so if you do choose to take on a bit more risk, I’ll teach you how to manage that risk.

As Warren Buffet put it, regarding investing: “Rule number 1: Don’t lose money. Rule number 2: See rule number 1.”

I’m going to help you follow that advice.

Got it? You’re absolutely going to be overall better off for knowing this stuff.

..But sometimes a broader fear comes up:

  • “What if I purchase this course, and then it doesn’t work for me, and then I look stupid?

(I mean, that’s an understandable fear. No one wants to try something and have it not work, and feel stupid.)

But this also won’t happen for two reasons:

1.) If for any reason you try this course, and feel it’s not a good fit for you, you can just return it.


I mean really easily.

For a full refund.

It is super simple to return courses on Udemy. If you don’t absolutely LOVE this course, then I want you to return it. Simple as that.

2.) This knowledge (when used over the course of you lifetime), will literally gain you thousands of dollars, probably more like tens of thousands or more.

(Obviously, I don’t mean all right now. BUT – over your lifetime – it will.)

(I know, it sounds big, unbelievable – that’s okay if you don’t believe me right now, you don’t have to, that’s okay.)

Either way, at the end of the day, this course is an investment in yourself.

And the return on that investment, the ROI, is quite high.

This stuff took me years to learn. SO many books, courses, paying $60,000/year at Loyola Marymount University to have access to training with multimillionaire Paul Orfalea, etc etc.

It’ll definitely be much cheaper, simpler, and easier, for you to just let me walk you through it all right now.

I guarantee that by the end of this course you’ll be very glad you took it – and if you don’t feel that way, please, just return it, for a full refund.

Check it out, join everyone who’s learning these concepts, and let me walk you through it – step by step.

I know, I know – there are other courses out there – I know Udemy likes to push the cheapest courses they have, on unsuspecting customers:) – and if I genuinely thought any of them were better than this one, I’d recommend them instead.

I personally have found that many of the other personal finance courses are dreadfully boring once you actually start them, and are by and large pretty awful (though some have really catchy intro videos!). Many have outdated information.

I have yet to find a personal finance course that I believe is better than this one.

Anyway, I’m a bit of a biased source, but I personally recommend Wealth Strategies & Personal Finance.

I just think it’s the best personal finance course there is.

(I truly believe that, otherwise I wouldn’t be here.)

Get inside right now:) I’ll teach you this stuff.

How Would YOU Use YOUR Wealth

Ok hold up – before you answer this first question, understand that there is no right answer – they're ALL right answers!!!

(Now Udemy makes me select one answer as the "right" answer, and if you don't pick it, it'll SAY that you got it wrong...)

But there IS NO right answer. I just want you to start thinking about what money can mean to YOU.

(There will be tiny quizzes like this scattered throughout the course. After you select an option, you can always click "check answer," and then scroll up the page a bit to see my comment on what you picked.)
