Welcome to Money 101!

[IDEA WOULD BE V SHORT VIDEO CLIPS / PODCAST STYLE CONTENT & THEN HAVE THE TRANSCRIPT BELOW. FORGIVE ME FOR PUTTING WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH ANDREW I WAS JUST LOOKING TO CREATE A REALISTIC EXAMPLE :) ]

I'm Andrew Priestley, author of the Money Chimp. The UKs number one ranked book for budgeting &money management. I'm a business coach with over 17 years experience & I specialise in helping people understand both business and personal finance. 

I'm delighted to be here with you & Money Dashboard because I am passionate about helping people understand finances. I started writing the Money Chimp, really to help my daughter understand her finances & basically undertook an extensive review of money management books, websites & courses. What I am presenting to you here is a distillation of all that knowledge.

Over the years Money Dashboard has helped hundreds of thousands of people break the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle, get out of debt, and save more money. It's a fantastic tool that can make managing your money so incredibly simple. However,I know that getting on top of your finances is a journey not just something that happens overnight.

In this quick course I'm going to share with you my top tips on the 10 money managing habits & skills you need to know.

By the end of the course you will have reviewed five key money management habits

  • Earning
  • Spending
  • Saving
  • Investing
  • Giving

And five practical skills, including

  • Tracking
  • Targeting
  • Trimming

This is designed to be little bite sized bits of information you can read or listen too the bus, on your lunch break at the gym. Wherever suits you! I'm also giving you free access to a bonus quiz to help you really understand your current money managing habits and skills today. This should really help you think about where you are today and help find areas to focus on.

Whilst it's small in time it can be big in ideas. There is a lot to absorb. But the great news is you're in a fantastic position because you've made the commitment to yourself to get on top of your finances by joining Money Dashboard.
