The essential guide to investing

Investing changed my life, and can change yours, too. You just need to know what to do. Unfortunately, that hasn’t always been so easy.

A whole financial industry exists to sell you products, and teach you methods that don’t work. Just getting through that, to the method that actually does work, is a hurdle.

And the books that exist about that method are mostly written by investors, not educators, and often derail understanding of the simple but critical basics, by focusing on less important complexities.

I set out to solve this, by creating a course that can be completed in an hour, that teaches just the essentials, while giving you everything needed to start your life on a reliable path to financial freedom.

I used to sell Money for Something for $24.99, and it was quite a success. Later, though, I realized that spreading the message as widely as possible is far more valuable to the world, than the money I was making through sales. So, I decided to let people access the book for free!

About Matt Henderson

About Matt Henderson

I grew up in the US and studied engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Working for the European Space Agency, I founded a company called Makalu Aerospace that was later sold to a public company in the United Kingdom. Today I live in southern Spain, enjoying its warm climate and friendly people.

Starting my own companies was possible due to the investment principles I learned over two decades ago. Those same principles are available to anyone, and are what I teach in this course.

Brilliant clear-headed quick explanation of everything a non-investor needs to know. Don’t delay getting this book, and doing what it says. It will only take you an hour to read, and an hour to put into action. Then you’ll be making passive investments, instead of saying “someday…”

Investing isn’t rocket science, despite what the alchemists of the financial industry would like you to believe. Matt shows you in simple steps how to build a no-frills portfolio using basic concepts anyone can understand. You’ll learn how to side-step the fees, stop acting like a day trader, and reap the power of compound interest. Get to it.
