It's what we should have learned about investing in high school, but didn't.

This course gives a simple and comprehensive walk through on how to build wealth by investing.

There are no secrets in this course. It's the same information you will find in all the classic books on investing. Reading those would be fantastic (in fact, here is a reading list).

But if this course format appeals to you, it's a great way to learn!

Yes his Instagram has a lot of this information but not in this detailed class-style courses.Jeremy grabs you by the hand and escorts you through the confusing and intimidating world of long-term investing and breaks it all down in a way that leaves you feeling like an expert.

Before taking this course I had read quite a few investing books and articles but I didn't really feel confident in how to actually go about opening things like Roth IRAs. Honestly, I didn't even know what a brokerage account was and because of that I just felt like I wasn't really ready to invest. How do you invest in something you aren't even sure where to get? This course has honestly made me feel much more confident about not only where to invest but also how and what to invest in! I am 28 and I feel like I've wasted a lot of years just not doing the most I could because I just wasn't sure how to and I come from a very financially unstable family so I didn't have anyone I felt I could ask. This course is absolutely worth every single penny! I currently have the tabs open to figure out if I want to go with Fidelity or Vanguard and am about to open a Roth IRA as soon as I'm finished with this review because I finally feel confident that I'm not going to completely screw up my life by doing it wrong. Truly, thank you so much for creating this course! It's going to be a complete game changer!

Like Jeremy says this is all stuff we should have learned in school. I highly recommend this course! It was extremely well organized and detailed. I didn’t have much knowledge of investing, rather I was really scared of it, especially because it was something I never grew up knowing. This course helps you understand the importance of investing in the simplest terms possible. Jeremy has a way of creating examples that just stick; he really does care to make sure you actually walk away learning the concept yourself, rather than just memorizing something or doing it just because. I would also like to share, I have been following Jeremy on Instagram for a while, hats off to someone that so selflessly responds to every comment and DM on Instagram and every question on the PFC community webpage everyday. He truly is committed to all those that want to be proud investors. Do yourself a favor, enroll in this course... it will change your life, I promise!!

I am so glad I invested in the PFC course this year. I learned so much in 3 days on investing from stocks, bonds, how to actually invest, and more. I feel so empowered and ready to start investing in my retirement now. I opened up my first Roth IRA account today and will start auto-investing at least $500 this month. I plan to max out my Roth IRA account ($6000) for the year in the next 3 months. I am super excited and wish I knew this information years ago. Jeremy⁣ made this course so simple and easy to understand, plus he gave direct details on how to implement the content right away. I'm going to recommend this course to everyone I know. I can't wait to hit my retirement goal in 15 years. #LiveSaver

I always felt like investing was this big black hole that I would never understand. It gave me anxiety whenever I would begin researching because there was so much information out there. This course is so concise and educational, I now feel confident when it comes to investing... and before this I never thought I would ever use the words "confident" and "investing" in the same sentence. I'm sending this to everyone I know!!

FAQ

  • How long will I have access?

    Forever! Buying this course includes lifetime access including all future updates.

  • Who is this course for?

    This course is perfect for beginning investors. It's designed for those who have paid off all non-mortgage debt and want to learn how to build wealth through investing.

  • What ISN'T covered in this course?

    This course is all about investing in index funds. It doesn't cover budgeting, paying off debt, insurance, frugality, credit scores, real estate, etc.

  • Is this for a good cause?

    Yes! 20% of all sales (not profit, top line sales) goes directly to charity. The purpose behind this course is to fund the free content of PFC and be an engine for charitable giving. The charities and donations will be posted on the PFC instagram page.

  • What's the format of this course?

    It's mostly videos watched on your own schedule. There are quizzes filtered throughout the course, although they're mostly "learn by doing" exercises rather than "regurgitate what you just heard." You can see the curriculum below.

  • Can I take this if I live outside of the US?

    Yes. The course has six chapters. Chapters 1-4 apply wherever you live. Chapter 5 basically only applies to US investors (it's about taxes). Chapter 6 puts the pieces together, so some of it won't apply if you're outside of the US.

  • How long does this course take?

    It's about 6 hours of learning content, mostly videos. Doing it all at once would be a lot, so taking it one chapter a day at the fastest is recommended. That means the course will take about a week to finish if you do a little bit each day. (But it's self paced)

  • I have a very rare set of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine collectible figurines. They're worth over 10X what I paid for them in 1993. Do you think I should sell my house to further invest in ST:DSN memorabilia?

    No.

  • Is that last question really a FREQUENTLY asked question?

    Yes, I get it all the time.
