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 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.
