This course teaches graduate students, postdocs, and PhDs in their first Real Jobs how to passively invest with confidence. Passive investing is the most effective, least expensive, and most time-efficient method of investing, and it's perfect for busy PhDs(-in-training) who don't want a second job managing their investments but also don't want to sacrifice returns.
The benefits you will receive by working through this course are:
- Knowledge of investment vehicles and strategies
- A determination of your readiness to invest
- The ability to pick an account type, brokerage firm, and investments
- Confidence that you have made the best investing choice for you
- Not having to spend a bunch of time managing your investments
- Freedom from analysis paralysis!
Notice that I did not say: Make tons of money right away; get rich quick. It's not that kind of course!
The course will launch on April 27, 2018 with eight modules and will be priced at $249 ($199 is the pre-launch price). Based on feedback from students inside the course, I will continue to add modules at no additional cost to current students.
If you are one of the first 20 students to register, you will also receive a free 25-minute coaching session with me upon completion of the course.
My mission is to inspire and empower early-career PhDs to make the most of their money. I engage with students and postdocs through the Personal Finance for PhDs talks and my websites, Grad Student Finances and PhD Stipends. I started delivering seminars about personal finance for PhDs-in-training shortly after my PhD defense in fall 2014.
My passion for personal finance is rooted in my experience as a grad student, and I speak to my audiences as a more experienced and knowledgable peer. When I first started in graduate school, I knew that living well on a grad student stipend would be quite challenging, so I continuously learned and refined my money management strategies throughout my PhD.
I received a PhD in biomedical engineering from Duke University in 2014 and a BS in physics from Harvey Mudd College in 2007. I live in Seattle, WA with my husband, Kyle, who also holds a PhD from Duke University, and our daughter.
