Course Description

1. Start Saving Now: How To Do It

Regardless of how old you are or how much money you have, saving is a crucial component of financial health. Financial advisor Ian Fuller outlines the what and why of short-term, intermediate, and long-term savings goals. He touches on the psychological elements of saving and the practical implications of having money set aside for emergencies and dreams for the future. While he astutely observes that artists never truly retire, he points out the connection between financial and creative independence.

This course consists of a 30-minute video and worksheets. We recommend you take at least an hour to complete the associated worksheets after viewing.

2. Introduction To Investing

After watching Ian Fuller’s video introducing the importance of saving, you’re ready to start thinking about investing. Maybe you’ve been budgeting and have some money tucked away. Or maybe you haven’t been saving because you didn’t think you’d accumulate “enough” money to actually invest. Or maybe you have money sitting in a savings account with an interest rate similar to the one given by a shoebox under your bed. Ian Fuller addresses how to move forward with a plan regardless of where you might fall as he covers the where and how of investing.

This course consists of a 20-minute video and hours of research opportunity.
