This course is not a spectator sport; you won’t watch hours of video and hope it sinks in. Also, it will take you longer than you might expect if you do it right. We’ll start with a new, blank workbook and gradually build it up until it is ready to run a basic budget for buying gifts. Here’s how we’ll work together:

  1. You’ll read the lesson notes; step by step instructions supported by screen shots
  2. Watch and listen to the ‘how to’ video – I tend to talk on these videos as if I’m sitting right next to you
  3. You’ll do an exercise at the end of every section to get your own workbook to the same point as I got to in the lesson. Either do these exercises by following the instructions on-screen or by using the downloadable exercise book
  4. Finally, you’ll make make your own notes, a kind of quick reference guide to refer back to using the ‘Personal Quick Reference Guide

If you have a question about a topic just ask in the lesson or in the supporting Facebook Group and I’ll answer.
