​Sign up to get your FREE on-demand webinar, 5 STEPS TO FINANCIAL FREEDOM … even if you’re living paycheck to paycheck, buried in debt, and have nothing in savings.

​Sure, you might have gotten a late start, but you can still finish early and finish strong. You bring experience, skills, and knowledge that will help you reach the finish line. I know…there are lots of demands on you…sometimes from both children and parents. But let’s prioritize YOU! Let’s work together to build financial freedom so that you are the master of your destiny. Just think of the possibilities! Do you still have doubts? Then check out these real-life stories:

  • ​Karen and James sold their New York City home and moved to a lovely town in Virginia. By moving to a community with a lower cost of living, they were able to pocket most of the proceeds from the sale of their home and retire in their early 50s.
  • ​Joy, who never earned more than $60,000 per year, lived frugally and made savings a priority, retired at age 60. She used her newfound freedom to travel to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands.
  • ​Brenda experienced hard times in her early 30s, but once she began her career, she saved and invested, eventually building a net worth of $1,000,000—and she did it as a single mom! Financial freedom gave her the opportunity to become an entrepreneur when she lost her job in her mid-50s

​Yes, the later you start, the more challenging it will be to reach financial freedom. But I know you are up for this Challenge! It may require you to make some lifestyle changes, get out of your comfort zone, and try new things. This course is going to give you all the tools and EMPOWER you to create a brighter future…one without constant money worries. Financial freedom will open doors for you. You can say “goodbye” to your boss, become an entrepreneur with your own money stream, choose a less stressful job, travel the world, or fully engage in your community. Are you ready to walk through that door?

​What makes the Academy different from other personal finance courses?

​​​​The Academy offers a simplified and straightforward process that cuts through the confusion and complexity of finances. But more importantly, ​Dr. Brenda integrate 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. And ​our approach is very hands-on and personalized (no BS). The Academy provides the support, motivation, tools, and individualized approach that is lacking from your typical talking-head finance course.

​Why does the course cost so much?

​​​Here's a recent headline: "The dirty little secret of online learning: Students are bored and dropping out." How many times have you paid for an online course only to be incredibly disappointed? ​Dr. Brenda researched the personal finance course offerings and taken a few classes ​herself. Mind-numbing! The Academy is unlike anything you've seen before - and it's set up so that you will actually complete it. ​Dr. Brenda uses radically cool software, ​her expertise in instructional design, and ​behavioral psychology ​to make the courses interactive, engaging, and dare we say it, FUN!​ We believe ​the Academy 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 the Academy through your link, you get 30% of the sales price. Not a bad deal, right?

Will I have immediate access to the course and private Facebook community?

​Yes, you will have instant access to the course. Then we will invite you to our private Facebook community.

How long will it take me to complete the course?

The course has five units plus a bonus section. Plan to spend at least one week per unit. Because the course is self-paced, you can go as fast or as slow as you like. However, the only way to unlock the next unit is to collect coins by completing ​activities. And once you've completed a unit, you can return to it any time you like. Wealth-building is a marathon, not a sprint.

What’s included in each ​unit?

Each unit includes interactive lessons taught by Dr. Brenda, instructional videos, a reflection activity, links to top-notch resources, fun interactive ​exercises, and downloads that will lead to ​your very own individualized action plan - a plan that reflects your circumstances, priorities, and values. ​Plus, each unit includes Facebook sharing activities that will keep you connected to your Academy friends through our private group. And did we mention that the course is beautifully designed, even eye-popping?

What type of technology do I need for the course?

Do I have to have a Facebook account to join the Facebook community?

​Yes. We take your privacy seriously, so we set up a SECRET group, which means that only Academy students can access the group and view the information. ​

 Should I get my family and friends to ​enroll?

If you know someone who would benefit from the Early Exit Academy, by all means invite them! You will be traveling “against the tide” as you strive toward financial freedom, and it can help if you have a partner in crime so that you can encourage one another. Keep your eyes on the prize!

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

Dr. Brenda is not a financial advisor so she can’t give you specific advice. 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 - and your hopes for leaving the workforce before the traditional retirement age.

 Will I get one-on-one advice from Brenda?

​​If there is a demand, Dr. Brenda may add limited-seating Jump Start Workshops at a later date, which will include more personalized advice.

 I can’t attend the “Explorer” webinars. Will they be recorded so that I can access them later?

Yes. The webinars will be recorded and as soon as they are available, ​we will post a notice to the private FB community. Remember, you can always submit your questions and suggestions in advance so that we can cover it in a webinar, whether you are attending or not.

​How do I get my graduation cap?

​We're glad that you're already thinking ​about graduation! The Bonus session includes ​an online order form. ​We can't wait to see you walking around in your Early Exit Academy hat!

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