Course overview

Become a Savvy Investor In Your Teens 🌟

I often wished for a Wall Street mentor during my teenage years.

Now, I want to be that guide for you. Discover how to build lasting wealth early, without the costly mistakes I made, like splurging on a sports car at 24. Forget chasing quick riches or the latest stock fads.

The secret? Straightforward tactics from my 20+ years on Wall Street.

I'm ready to pass on these powerful strategies to you. You don't need two decades of trials and a Harvard MBA to succeed. Begin now, and you're on the path to the wealth, freedom, and choices you aspire to.

Without the get-rich-quick gimmicks.

Who is this course for


Are you a teen or in your early 20s, looking to make smart money moves and not just follow the latest fads? This is your tribe.


You're ready to tune out the noise of friends making a quick buck and instead focus on building lasting wealth.


You're here to build wealth with solid Wall Street strategies, the kind I wish someone had shown me when I was your age.


You want to avoid the traps that catch most young investors.


You want to start investing early to tap into the magical power of compounding to build potential generational wealth.


You don't want to trade stocks every day. Instead you want a smart approach and invest once a month.

What you’ll get out of this course

Your Unique Portfolio of Three Funds

Your portfolio should be as unique as your fingerprint. You'll build this portfolio using three simple and effective funds: total US stock market, total world stock market, and total bond market.

Simple Tools

I'm all about creating ease, joy, and curiosity. You'll have easy to use tools. After this course, you'll be so excited, that you'll want to invest every single dollar you earn from your summer job.

The Secret Sauce I learned at Harvard

See why the way your friends invest is gambling. Investing is not about finding the next Tesla. Dive into the 'secret sauce' of investing, distilled from 20+ years of my Wall Street experience. Most investors have no idea and leave money on the table.

Why You Want To Start Investing Now

One of the most powerful lessons you'll learn is the importance of starting early. Investing isn't just for the here and now; it's about setting up your future self for success. This course aims to equip you with the knowledge and tools to potentially build generational wealth.

Identify and Avoid Pitfalls

In this course, you'll learn to sidestep get-rich-quick schemes and quick wins. Hear real stories, like my flashy sports car blunder at 24, and pick up what really matters in making smart money moves, beyond just looking cool.

I help women take control of your financial life by learning how to invest and start building your version of financial freedom, without overwhelm. 

This is more meaningful to me than having invested billions over my 20+ year Wall Street career.

The difference between losing money or making money is whether you speculate (fruitless short-term trading) or invest (sticking to a long-term strategy).

I made my way as a scholarship kid from India to Singapore, Lafayette College, and Harvard Business School. My years at Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street firms helped me hone my time-tested investment philosophy and strategy.

Now I'm excited to bring my course to teens.
