“If you keep thinking you’ll start ‘saving more’ but just never seem to get started, THIS is the course to get you started.”

Tracy P.S.

I’m thrilled that I found this course because it’s about so much more than just the money. It’s a holistic deep-dive into what I want my days and years to look like, and by giving me access to the most recent research with logical steps to follow it has given me more freedom, confidence, and empowerment than I could’ve imagined before embarking on this journey.

Why is the Workshop open to women only?

My goal is to provide a safe and supportive learning environment for women, and that can be difficult to do if we have "mansplaining" going on. Plus, women have unique issues, such as earning lower pay and lacking supportive networks that encourage women to take charge of their money - and their future. That's why I restrict participation in this Workshop.

Is the Workshop live?

​​​Yes! Each ​Saturday morning we open the new week’s lessons and downloads. All of our mastermind ​classes and weekly ​group calls are ​live. Here is the schedule we use in our 14-week course:

  • New Lessons released every ​Saturday morning.
  • Weekly ​Group Lessons with Q&As – Mondays @ 7:00 pm ET
  • Mastermind ​Classes (weeks 2, 4, 7, 9, and 13) – Thursdays @ 7:00 pm ET
  • One-on-One Coaching Call – ​scheduled at your convenience

​Can I get my money back if I drop out?

​If you sign up and decide to back out of the Workshop at least 48 hours before it starts, we'll refund your money. This gives us a few days to open your seat to someone who will be ​excited to join the Workshop. But after that time period, you are financially committed to the Workshop. If you are not satisfied with the quality or content of the Workshop within 21 days of the ​state date, you can request a no-questions asked refund.

What if I miss the calls or have to take a week off?

All video calls are recorded, so you can view them at a time that is convenient to you. If you need to take some time off during the 14-week course, you can catch up. We encourage Workshop participants to get a jump on “homework” by working on the materials soon after they are released.

Can I take the Workshop even if I live outside the United States?

Yes! The fundamentals of financial freedom are the same everywhere. However, there are some sections of the Workshop that are USA-centric, such as our retirement systems and our health insurance options. We can discuss your unique situation in the one-on-one coaching calls.

What do I need to participate?

You’ll need a strong desire to reach financial freedom to complete this course. Logistically, all of the course material is housed in a course management system (TalentLMS) and can be easily accessed by mobile device, tablet, or computer. You’ll need high-speed Internet access to load the Workshop materials. Plus, you need a Facebook account to join our private Financial Freedom for Women Workshop group.

The Workshops include Accountability ​Groups. Can you tell me more?

​​​Sure! In week #1 we ask you to complete a form with some basic information. We take that information and create ​groups of four. One of our key factors is geographic location, so we’ll try to connect you with others who live in the same region or time zone. We provide you with contact information for your ​group and invite you to connect with one another for support and to keep one another ​on track.

What results can I expect from the Workshop?

When you successfully complete the Workshop, you will be in charge of your money - and your future. You'll put your newfound knowledge to work to:

  • Increase your net worth
  • Set your FREEDOM date - you determine WHEN to leave the workforce
  • ​Conquer debt - and stop worrying about money
  • ​Build your dream life

​Is it too late for me?

​​If you're in your​ 50s or 60s, it's NOT TOO LATE! The methods used in the Workshop can skyrocket you to a healthy balance sheet. If you’re older, you'll have to pick up the pace, but you'll have all the tools you need. You CAN build financial freedom - at any age.

What makes the Workshop different from other personal finance courses?

​​​​The Workshops offers a simplified and straightforward process that cuts through the confusion and complexity of finances. But more importantly, ​Dr. Brenda integrates the psychological, social, and financial steps that will help you build a joyful and rewarding life. It's about designing a new life - money is the tool. ​Our Workshops are very hands-on and include group coaching. We give you the support, motivation, tools, and ​coaching that is lacking from the typical talking-head finance course.

​Why does the Workshop cost so much?

​​​​How much is financial freedom worth to you? Dr. Brenda uses radically cool software to bring you engaging course content, taps into ​her expertise in instructional design, ​uses behavioral psychology ​to bring you a transformational experience, and applies her coaching methods on a personal basis. We believe the Workshop is one of the best investments you will ever make, because YOU WILL SEE RESULTS!

Plus, ​we're into sharing the wealth. You can actually share in the profits by joining our Affiliate Program. When you sign up for the program, you'll get a unique link that you can share with others, and when someone ​enrolls in an Early Exit Academy course (including the Jumpstart Workshops) through your link, you get 30% of the sales price. Not a bad deal, right?

What type of technology do I need for the course?

You’ll need internet access and basic knowledge of how to download and print/save files. Many of the resources are in PDF so if you don’t already have Adobe Acrobat, you’ll be prompted to download it. We use Zoom for our video conferences – you can download the latest version and use it for free.

​Does the course include specific financial advice, like what investments to pursue?

Dr. Brenda is a financial coach, not an advisor. She cannot give you specific advice in terms of investment vehicles. However, she will talk about the importance of low-fee index funds; give you suggestions on the types of accounts to use for short, medium, and long-term goals; and offer an investment planner that takes into account your timeline​.

How do I schedule my one-on-one coaching session with Dr. Brenda?

You will have ​one personal coaching session with Dr. Brenda. ​She will send you a link to her coaching calendar so that you can schedule the session at your convenience. When you make the appointment, you can mention specific questions or topics that you would like to discuss with Dr. Brenda.

​​What if I have questions while I’m going through the Workshop?

If you have a question, just send an email to Dr. Brenda or a member of her team will respond as quickly as possible.
