What types of courses are offered?

  • DreamBuilder Intensives (DBI): Similar to the renown Live Richer Challenge, intensives allow DreamBuilders to work together towards a unified goal. Throughout these 22-day, challenge-like offerings, DreamBuilders receive tasks via text message, email, and our private Facebook group. Upon completion, a specific goal is accomplished, i.e. stock purchase, the establishment and funding of a retirement account, etc.

  • **Pre-Recorded Courses: Pre-recorded courses include between 6-8 lessons.  These lessons include a brief video, a written component, and one or more downloadable resources to help you apply the lesson takeaways to your life.  Comprehensive quiz, included.
  • **Live Courses: Live courses include 3-5 lessons. These lessons are in video format and contain one or more downloadables and/or online resources to help you apply takeaways to your life.  Comprehensive quiz, included.

How much does the Live Richer Academy cost?

The Academy costs a monthly fee of $19.97.
Originally, the Academy was designed as a single investment course valued at $24.99 (a price set by DreamCatchers).  I increased the value of membership by adding multiple courses for less than half the price of one!  This means that you will never pay for more than you need in the Academy. Instead, you will always receive more than what you are paying for. 
Below, I’ve included the available payment options.
Available Payment Options
  • Monthly Membership: $19.97/mo. (automated recurring payments like a gym membership)
  • 6-month Membership: $99.85 (1 month free with this option, $19.97 x 5 months = $99.85)
  • 1-year Membership: $199.70 (you get 2 months free with this option, $19.97 x 10 months = $199.70)

A cost of $19.97 for how many months? How long is the Academy?

The Academy is an ongoing healthy lifestyle choice, like the gym. You can maintain your membership for as long as you like. New courses are continuously introduced to the Academy.

Can I sign up at any time?

Are the courses self-paced?

The pre-recorded Academy courses are self-paced. You are able to work through as much or as little course material as you’d like. We recommend scheduling time in for at least one lesson per week.

Once access has been established, how long are courses available? Will participants be able to go back and access a course again?

Yes. Courses about children and money will be added soon.

Is there access to more than just one class at a time or are they spread out over different months?

The courses will be available simultaneously. You can do one or more courses at the same time. Each course has 3-8 lessons and you have unlimited access to all of the lessons for as long as you maintain your membership.

If I end membership, will I still have access to courses released when I was an active member, but not access to new courses?

Once you end your membership, you will no longer have access to the Academy courses. Similar to a gym membership. You’re not paying per class; rather, you’re paying for a membership with the Academy.

Are there any tools, resources needed for the Academy?

There is an Academy notebook for members only, to keep you organized as you take the courses. Also, each instructor provides you with the tools you’ll need for their course.

I’d love to give memberships as gifts. Will you be offering gift membership options?

Unfortunately, we are unable to process memberships as gifts at this time.

It would have been nice if we could just pay for courses in the topics we felt we needed help with or wanted to learn more about. Will you ever have an option like that so we only pay for what we need?

Sneak Peeks – Coming soon!

How many courses will be made available in the one-month membership?

You will have access to all Academy courses and lessons – over 15 courses and more than 15 one-hour, Ask the Expert sessions.

Will I pay a monthly fee forever or just until the courses I want are completed?

It’s an automated recurring payment, like a gym membership. You will be charged until you cancel your membership.

Can’t I find similar courses for free online? What’s the difference?

The Courses:

CoursesThey were chosen by Dream Catchers, for Dream Catchers. After surveying over 100,000 Dream Catchers, the courses in the Academy are a reflection of the most requested content. New courses will be added regularly as the suggestions pour in from you. The Academy includes detailed and self-paced 3-week courses on topics designed for you.

The Instructors: I handpicked and vetted each instructor for excellence. They are all Budgetnista-Certified, which means they all pass my Lisa Rule* (see rule at the bottom of the page). Instructors are also professionally certified, have a graduate school level of education, or have a successful business in the subject matter they teach for the Academy.

The Intention: I began The Budgetnista as an act of service to my community. I felt that financial education was not being taught in a way that was making a real difference. I launched the Live Richer Challenge because I wanted to help women worldwide be financially empowered. The Live Richer Academy was born out of your request for more.

I’ve been teaching personal finance for over 10 years and one thing I know for sure is that there can never be enough education. The Academy is the answer to: “Now what? Now that I know how to budget, save, and pay down debt because The Budgetnista taught me, now what?” It’s time for you to move to the next level. The Live Richer Academy will help to take you there while holding your hand, listening to your needs, and developing new courses as you grow.

*My Lisa Rule: I have 4 sisters and Lisa is the baby (well, she’s not a baby anymore). Out of all of my sisters, I’m the most protective over her. Before I share any product or service with you, it must pass my Lisa Rule. What’s the Lisa Rule? If I would not advise Lisa to use a product or service, I won’t advise you to. YOU are my Lisas. I feel protective over you and your financial journey.
