I'm proud to finally announce the launch of BROJO University's new online course: Financial Freedom: The Guide to Getting Started!
(BROJO Silver and Gold Members can access this free right now!)
When most people start foraging through the internet for get-rich-quick schemes and strategies, it's usually for one reason:
Money causes us fear.
Throughout our lives, we were given the impression that money has the power of God. It giveth... and it taketh away. Those with lots of it are supposedly secure and happy, and those with little or none are suffering.
For most of my life, money controlled me.
My bosses could control my behaviour because I relied on them for my paychecks (or so I believed).
My jobs controlled my freedom and time because I "needed" them as the source of my income.
Anyone I was indebted to became a controlling agent in my life because they could rain hell down upon me if I failed to pay my dues.
I got scared of money. I would worry about poverty even when I had a job and a decent income. Sometimes, the fear would cause me to just stop thinking about money altogether, to bury my head in the sand and to spend frivolously to satisfy any craving that I felt.
I loved being able to buy stuff and go travelling and have fun, but I was scared of my dependency on money. I resented being unable to choose my own work activities and hours, and I hated having to wait for someone else to agree to increase my wages before I was able to improve my quality of life.
I avoided budgeting and facing my expenses. I shied away from that big scary thing called "investing". I blew my disposable cash on instant gratifications.
I was always overdrawn and got myself into bad debt for pointless reasons. And I sat around impatiently every Wednesday night, waiting for some company to top up my empty account with a pittance in exchange for the 50+ hours worth of value I'd given them a week before.
I was money's slave.
And, I'm guessing, if you haven't yet achieved Financial Freedom, you are feeling this way too. But not for long...
As you can probably tell from the tone of my writing, I no longer see myself as a slave to money. That era is behind me now. Currency no longer controls me. I now choose my work activities and hours, improve my quality of life whenever I wish, and generally do whatever the hell I want most of the time.
Actually, no... none of the above.
At the time of writing this, I pay myself a salary of just $46K NZD per year. And that covers both me and my wife. While I do earn more than that through my own business, I don't NEED more than that to be financially free.
I lack for nothing.
But there's nothing special about me.
I am not a finance expert or advisor. I am merely an avid learner who has spent the past decade slowly being educated by the wealthiest and/or most free people in the world on how to become financially free. And now I'll be passing on that information to you.
I won't be focusing on just teaching you how to get rich, though this course is full of strategies I've learned from and resources provided by those who do teach such things.
While you can use what's in this course to build up wealth, my expertise is less about finances and more about confidence-building. This course will not only help you manage your finances practically, but it will also give you the ability to manage your insecurities about money psychologically.
I will be teaching you how to create a true sense of freedom.
Financial Freedom: the ability to live a high-quality life while feeling confident, content and free, and all without being insecure about money or dependent on others.
Even many of the wealthiest people in the world are still openly insecure about money. In this course, I hope to add what many financial advisors are unable to provide: freedom from your confidence issues about money.
And I will share the tactics I've learned on how to control your money - how to make it your 'slave' - so that you no longer suffer any life-quality problems in relation to your finances.
Financial Freedom is not just about having a tonne of cash on hand, or big-ticket assets, or millions in the stock market (although we will look at how this is accomplished). People who need these things might be rich but they are often still owned by their money.
Start thinking about Financial Freedom as being exactly what it sounds like - freedom from your finances!
OK, yes; you can use what's in this course to build up your income, if that's your main focus.
But the real freedom will come from finally being able to go on holiday, start your own business, or engage in fun hobbies, without feeling burdened and restricted by that fictional symbol of value that we call like to call 'money'.

Money plays a big role in our lives. So we've created a course that gives you everything you need to master your money.
Financial Freedom is the name we give to knowing how to create a guaranteed income for life, as well as becoming psychologically confident around the concept of money and resources so that you don't let insecurities ruin you.
We draw on wisdom from respected finance and lifestyle freedom experts around the globe, including Ray Dalio, Tim Ferriss, Ramit Sethi, Tony Robbins, Warren Buffet, and more!
In this course, we're going from start to finish to cover all the bases.
No matter where you are financially, we recommend you take the time to go through the entire course from start to finish.
If you're already financially intelligent, you can simply double-check that you aren't making any pointless errors, and if you're relatively new to the belief that you, too, can attain financial freedom, then every part of this course will be relevant to you.
Let's dive in...
