About the course
Take control of your finances and your life.
Dealing with money is an essential part of life in our society. Everyone uses it, everyone needs it. Yet many people consider money to be at the heart of their biggest problems. But money does not have to be a problem, it does not even need to be a solution. If you can find a balanced relationship with money, you may find that some of your stresses and worries disappear overnight, without a pay raise.
Learning how to manage and budget your money has never been more important. When you learn how to make your money work with you, you can:
- Help make the money you have go further
- Stop working so many extra hours to cover your seemingly unending expenses
- Develop a relationship with money that is not based on fear or greed
- Start saving successfully for short term goals like vacations
- Plan for your future with long term savings
- Take back control of your life
International Open Academy is made up of a truly international team who bring a lot of different life experiences to the table. This is important because nobody approaches money and finance the same way- nor should we! Everyone has different wants, needs, desires, goals and expectations for their life. But this course offers an opportunity to take important lessons and apply them to your own life.
