The course is split in to four main topics; goal setting and budgeting, managing debt, building wealth and protecting your financial future.
Each week you will focus on one major topic and complete several tasks to apply your new knowledge and transform your finances. It's all done in a fun and engaging way. For example, we explain how to get a better deal from your bank, the best way to ask for a pay rise, how to manage your financial relationship with your partner, protecting your wealth, adding value to your home and much more.
How will I save money at the end of the Money Makeover?
That's really up to you and how seriously you follow the program. The Money Makeover delivers 20 video lessons on personal finance topics ranging from budgeting to managing your mortgage and making sure your financial relationship with your partner is working well. Each lessons is accompanied by a specific tasks designed for you to put that information to work for your own personal situation. These tasks will ensure you get the best value out of every dollar you earn, spend, enjoy and save.
What do I need to do each day?
We want you to commit between 15 and 30 minutes a day to your Money Makeover. This will give you time to watch a short video lesson (on any device) and complete a practical personal finance task. You also have the opportunity to participate in our ask the expert sessions or discussion forums each day. Some tasks may take longer than others depending on your situation, and it's up to you how much effort you put in. Look, we're biased but we reckon you'll love the experience and really get to understand your finances, and so you'll want to be spending more time on the course!

The Money Makeover Team is here to support you through your journey and help you take control of your finances.
Who is the Money Makeover suited to?
We believe anyone can benefit from a financial health check. That said, this course is best suited to people or families that feel like they don't have control over their money, or are confused or worried about their financial situation. The course is a simple, step-by-step guide to taking control of your finances. Most importantly, it will encourage you to take action and start making real savings from lesson one.
I don't know anything about money, is this course too hard for me?
No! Definitely not. In fact, we think it's doubly important for you to take this course if you feel you have a low level of financial literacy. This course is jargon free and talks you through your money in plain English. By the end of it, you'll realise that being in control of your money isn't actually all that hard.
I'm currently experiencing a financial crisis and/or financial hardship, should I take this course?
Absolutely not. If you are experiencing a financial crisis, or if you feel that signing up to this course would cause you financial hardship, please don't sign up.

Do you recommend financial products in the Investment Makeover?
No, we will never recommend a financial product or service in our courses. We will give you the information you need to make an informed decision for yourself. In certain situations, we may point you to trusted and independent data sources where you can find information about financial products. We do not receive any commissions, payments or favours for this, and only do it for the benefit of our members.
Is the Investment Makeover tax deductible?
The short answer is maybe. We can't tell you whether the course will be tax deductible for you, and the best way to find out is to speak to your accountant. The long answer is that the ATO currently allows for an immediate deduction of up to $300 for books, periodicals and digital information as long as they meet certain criteria (mainly that they are used to generate income not from a business, such as an investment portfolio). Find out more here, and speak to your accountant.
Will you show me how to get rich quick?
Absolutely not. There is no such thing as a get rich quick scheme, and anyone who tells you otherwise is full of it. The Investment Makeover is a sensible, practical and conservative guide to investing which will give you the knowledge and the confidence you need to develop your own investment strategy and start building your wealth. In the course, we focus on proven long-term strategies to wealth creation, not the next big thing or high risk strategies that will inevitably backfire. Before making any investment decisions, we strongly recommend you seek professional advice.
