Welcome to Basic Training

Dear Future Investor,

You are an independent thinker determined to have control over your financial future and live your version of the good life. You want to be debt free and travel, take memorable vacations, retire in comfort, send your kids to college, or help take care of a loved one.

And because you’re independent, you don’t like your financial future being at the mercy of your job, clients, or changing government regulations.

 You’re tired of living paycheck to paycheck, putting money in a retirement account that you know won’t support you in your golden years.


 You want out of the rat race and you know that real estate investing is the key.

The problem is that you have no idea how to begin, how much money you need to get started, or which investments would be best suited for you.

You’ve been trying to figure it out yourself by reading market reports, buying books, researching online, taking courses and seminars, but you still don’t have a clear path to success.

You are in the right place. We can help you get clear on your path, have the CFA community to help you and fast track to your goal of having passive income! 

What you need is a step-by-step process that will cut through the clutter and help you:

  • Create a clear and fast path to cash flow freedom.
  • Get started investing with $0 to $20,000.
  • Determine the best investments if you have more to invest but you’re unsure of your risk tolerance.
  • Find the BEST real estate investment strategy based on your age (how many years you have until retirement), risk tolerance, how much you need to live your cash flow dreams, and how much you have to invest.
  • Learn how to tell a good deal from a bad deal.
  • Overcome your fear of numbers (math).
  • Learn how to speak like an experienced investor.
  • Buy your first property.
  • Fix your credit issues and learn instead how to leverage your credit. 
  • Learn the many categories of real estate investing (you’ll be amazed to learn how many opportunities there are).

I first met Athena about six years ago at the class she teaches at Torrance Adult School.

 I was so inspired by her class that I had the confidence to start shopping for income property.

I eventually purchased 2  buildings (9 doors) of cash flowing property.  I have also played the game Cash Flow.  It really teaches you how to think about all of your money, big and small.  I am now comfortable to venture beyond CD’s and savings accounts.  

Athena acts as a mentor and I feel like she is rooting for everyone’s financial success.  

Over the last five years my annual income and my net worth have both substantially increased.  I am a high school graduate and do clerical work, anyone can be an investor with a little guidance.
