The Nine Lessons of FPU

You’ll learn the course overview and the 7 Baby Steps - our proven, step-by-step plan to win with money! Take a deep dive into Baby Step 1, saving $1,000 for your starter emergency fund, and discover the key to your success: the budget.

Baby Step 1 - Budgeting

Baby Step 2 - Pay Off All Debt

Baby Step 2 is paying off all debt (except the house) using the debt snowball. You’ll learn that debt is not a tool to build wealth - it’s a thief! But with our proven method, gazelle intensity, and a lot of prayer, you can get rid of those payments once and for all!

Baby Step 3 - Save a Fully Funded Emergency Fund

Baby Step 3 is saving 3–6 months of expenses in a fully funded emergency fund. The emergency fund is Murphy repellent. It protects you from reaching for a credit card to cover emergencies, and it keeps you from living in fear of the next surprise expense!

 Baby Step 4 is to invest 15% of your household income in retirement. Baby Step 5 is to save for your children’s college fund. Baby Step 6 is to pay off your home early. And Baby Step 7 is to build wealth and give with outrageous generosity!

Baby Step 4,5,6,7 - Invest in the Future & Build Wealth

Buyer Beware

There are a million marketing tactics trying to get at your money and bust your budget, but in Lesson 5, you’ll learn how to gain power over your purchases! Learn when to put your shields up to defend your dollars -and when to get your dollars out and negotiate for a deal.

The Role of Insurance

Lesson 6 is not your typical boring and confusing insurance talk. You’ll clearly understand the seven types of insurance you actually need and what you definitely don’t need. Getting the right insurance in place is one of the most important parts to your defensive game plan!

Planning for retirement is all about wealth building! In Lesson 7, you’ll learn how to think and act like a millionaire by investing the right way - slowly, consistently, and simply, in things you actually understand.

Retirement Planning

Real Estate & Mortgages

A house is the largest financial investment you’ll ever make, so make sure you know the right way to buy one! In Lesson 8, you’ll learn about renting, refinancing, selling, and when and how to buy your dream home.

The Great Misunderstanding

You can do everything we teach and you will prosper, but if you don’t understand this lesson, you will never have financial peace. In Lesson 9, you’ll learn how to manage money - God’s money - with an open hand and a generous heart.

We hope to see you soon at Hillside!
