Become a Savvy Investor and a Wealth Builder...as a Woman!
Do you want to learn about investments but don’t know where to begin?
Do you have investments but don’t understand how they work?
In one simple step a month, over the next year, I will show you how to become a Wealth Builder.
I have been an active investor for over 27 years. I’ve made a lot of mistakes. And I’ve learned a lot from every one of them. I’m very proud of the wealth I’ve built and the knowledge I have, despite the fact I spent the first 40 years of my life in a financial fog.
Many of you know my story. I was born into wealth, but never wanted to deal with money. Finances intimidated me. I just wanted to spend it. My husband took care of everything. But I discovered, midway through our 15 year marriage, he was a compulsive gambler who was gambling away my inheritance. Even then I still let him make all the financial decisions. I felt too stupid to do otherwise. After our divorce, I got tax bills for over one million dollars which I didn’t have. My husband had left the country. My father refused to help. I had 3 daughters. I was not going to raise them on the streets. I knew I had to get smart about money. And I did. And I’ve been helping women do the same for over 20 years.
I want to teach you the same process I followed to become a savvy investor. And I want to hold your hand every step of the way. I realize that, for some of you, investing seems daunting, risky, unfathomable…so easy to ignore, to put off, not think about.
My goal is to show how simple (and fun!) investing can be by breaking it down into very small chunks.
What You Will Learn in One Year to Wealth...Becoming a Savvy Investor
I want YOU to know the enormous freedom, immense security, the incalculable peace of mind and the unbelievable confidence that I now experience.
You will completely understand the basics of investing, how simple it is.
LANGUAGE OF INVESTING
You will be able to speak the language of investing like a seasoned investor.
You will have lots of support every step of the way, from me, from other women like you.
You will learn how to take the gambling out of investing, minimize risk while maximizing gain, no matter how the markets are performing.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
You will be in a wonderful position to engage in philanthropy, helping people you love and causes that matter to you.
STEP INTO YOUR POWER
You will feel an incredible sense of power as you become a savvy investor.
Every now and then life presents us with a game changer. Barbara is such a person. 1Y2W , for me, marked a new beginning. Barbara handed me the tools to discover how my mind approaches money, how money fog works and when it arises and when old stories dictate my approach to money today. After almost a year of 1Y2W I feel equipped to talk about money ( I never did), to approach finance professionals ( I never dared) and to manage my assets ( I never even knew them.) Within the supportive and exciting environment Barbara created, it became possible to see my emotions as a part of my money story. With the course almost done, there is no end in sight. My money explorations have only just begun and they will last a lifetime. My role, going forward, is clear: to nourish myself, my family and the world. All emotions are welcome! Thank you!!!

"This class has absolutely, positively changed my life for the better! It was well worth the time and money I invested in it. The biggest benefit I have received from the One Year to Wealth Program is the sense of empowerment I feel.
When I first signed up I wondered whether or not I was a good candidate for the class. I worried that I didn’t have enough money or knowledge to participate. However, by taking the class I now have more money, more knowledge, more comfort and confidence with my personal finances. I feel excited about my financial future! I have a focused financial plan. AND I feel more powerful, more positive, and hopeful than ever before!
You’re right, it’s not just about the money. It’s so much more!!!! And it’s exciting!! Thank you Barbara! "~~Ronna Vigil
This course looks deceptively simple: 12 steps about investing that didn’t sound much like investing to me: commit, educate, track.. I thought we should be learning big investing words or equations. Turns out, Barbara’s methods are exactly right on, again.
The class gave me a strong foundation of basic investing principles, language and concepts. Equally important, it gave me a better understanding of the role of powerful emotions that must be managed in order to successfully invest.
Even those with a lot of investing experience will learn from Barbara. I recommend this class to anyone who wants to be responsible for their financial future and has questions or fear about it, or doesn’t know how to begin. ~~Celeste Lane
