Will the courses be available simultaneously or will we have to wait until after one course is over before accessing another?
The Live Richer Academy wants you to become Financially Whole; in order to make this happen on your own terms, the 12-Step Financial Wholeness Plan is being updated to a required succession order. You will have to complete the modules in sequential order; where one module will be available at a time, granting you access to the next course module after you successfully complete the previous course model. However; the Academy does house a course library of over 40 courses, and you will have access to these courses at all times, as long as, you have an active membership subscription.
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?
You will have unlimited access to all of the courses for as long as you maintain your membership.
Will there be a Facebook group for members of the Academy?
Yes. Here’s the link to request access: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LiveRicherAcademy/
Will there be a kids' class or a class on how to get kids started with savings, etc.?
Yes. Courses about children and money are included.
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.
How many courses will be made available in the one-month membership?
You will have access to the full Academy during your month membership; however, how many modules you are able to access, will be up to how many modules you successfully complete during that time frame.
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?
Courses: They 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 courses on topics designed for you.
The Instructors: We handpicked and vetted each instructor for excellence. They are all Budgetnista-Certified, which means they all pass our 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: We began The Budgetnista as an act of service to our community. We 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.
We've been teaching personal finance for over 10 years and one thing we 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.
What is the refund policy?

What's the Lisa Rule?
Our 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 of you and your financial journey.
