Did you just get engaged?
Are you newly married?
You’ve talked about the wedding details, where you want to live, what furniture you want to buy or bring into this new relationship.
You know each other’s favorite coffee, whether you'd like to sleep in on weekends, how many kids they’d like to have.
But have you had the big money talk?
Do you know what each of you owes and what each of you owns?
Do you have a plan for how you’re going to handle your money as a couple, as a family?
Do you know how you’re going to save for retirement even if that seems to be eons away?
Do you and your partner really understand how money works?
If you said ‘no’ to most of these questions, then
This course is for you.
You owe it to yourself and your partner to get on the same page about money sooner rather than later.
Why? Because the biggest reason that couples split up is money.

Why was this program created?
My name is Marianne Douglas. I created this program because I never really learned how money works - not from my parents (no blame here - they were most likely not taught either), not in school, and not when I was learning to be a math teacher. Because I never learned, I made every mistake possible and struggled with money most of my life. My ex-husband seemed to know less about how money worked than I did. Between us, we were totally clueless about how to manage money, how to grow our money, how to stay out of debt.
It would have been so easy if someone, anyone had just taught us the basics
We made so many financial mistakes including cashing in our retirement accounts when we left our teaching job and re-financing our home to pay off debt. Sounds amazing looking back. Two college educated former high school teachers who had no idea about money.
But there are many people who are like we were, who didn't understand money - except how to spend it. Research shows that many college graduates are often the least prepared because their math education focused on Algebra, Geometry, Calculus and other higher level topics and not on the practical, simple financial concepts that once known and implemented can create financial abundance and stress free living in terms of money.
I finally learned what I'm sharing with you now when I researched and developed a success program for my students called Strategies for Success. Designed to empower teens, it's full of topics that fill in the gaps in traditional education including financial literacy. My students were grateful that finally someone was teaching this information. I still teach this information to this day in my own seminars and to college freshmen.
Starting a life together with your significant other is the perfect time to make sure that you both are on track about money, especially given the high rate of divorces and break-ups over money issues.
Here are some of the topics covered in this short course:
how to set up a system to pay bills, have fun and plan for the future
how money grows and why the earlier you start, the better
how what you each believe about money determines how you handle it
how credit works
how to split your incomes fairly if you make very different salaries
and much more!

“You’ve probably heard that money problems are one of the most significant factors that can lead to divorce. Without a doubt, differences in money management styles between two partners can ruin a marriage. In fact, you don’t even need to be married to fall victim to the powerful influences money problems can have on a relationship.”

“Insight is 20/20”
This is a great course for those in a serious relationship. It helps couples realize that, although we don't like to talk about it, money and finances play a roll in a relationship. It offers resources for even more information on how to manage finances, create budgets, and set financial goals. I highly recommend this course to those thinking about marriage or struggling with finances! And although it’s written for couples, it has sound money advice for anyone, not just newly weds!
This course is filled with vital information to help anyone's financial situation. From understanding what your money beliefs are, to communicating with your partner, to making your money grow. I wish I was taught this years ago!
