Compared to investing with an advisor over 30 years (1% expenses + 1% fees)
Just a heads up: I'm still building out all the content for the Minafi Investor Bootcamp. As of today, you can play through 50% of the total outlined content, with more coming out each month.
If you sign up now, you'll lock in a lower rate and get access to all courses in the bootcamp as they're released. Once the last course is released the price will go up!

How long will I have access to Minafi?
I don't believe in subscriptions for access. Instead, all Minafi plans give you access for as long as Minafi is around for. I strive to keep Minafi's costs down which should allow it to be around for many many years to come.
Could I learn the contents of this bootcamp on my own?
Absolutely! The investing strategy I lay out in this bootcamp is the same one recommended by Warren Buffett, John Bogle and investment advisors around the world – diversified, low-fee, index-fund investing.
If you'd like to try to learn this on your own without the bootcamp, I highly recommend reading The Bogleheads Guide to Investing which will give an amazing overview of how to invest in the same way I go over in this bootcamp.
How does the give away account work?
When you sign up, you'll be able to invite one other person to join on that account. They'll get forever access to all courses as well! On your dashboard you'll have a place to invite them in by email address.
Getting your entire households finances in line is so much better if everyone in the household understands what's going on. I sincerely hope this helps you both develop a shared, confident relationship with money and investing. If you'd rather share it with a friend, that's awesome too!
The only difference between the primary account and the gifted account is that only the primary account will have the option for a 1-on-1 coaching call. If you're getting Minafi access as a couple, you can both be on the coaching call - in fact I encourage it!
Is there any time limit for completing a course?
Not at all. All courses are self-directed and self-paced. You can take it over a weekend or only visit Thursday nights when there's a full moon (Minafi's most popular day). Whatever works for you.
How do the coaching calls work?
The intro call is a 1-hour video call. If you prefer it to be audio only, we can also do a phone call or an audio only Skype call. I have a calendar that allows you to pick a time when you want to meet and we'll meet then – just the two of us.
These calls don't expire, so you can use them whenever you want. I highly recommend using it towards the beginning. Based on where you are in your investing journey, I'll provide a list of things for you to bring to the chat so we can get the most out of our time together. Many people have mentioned that just getting these things organized has been imensely helpful too!
These coaching calls don't expire either - so if you join and decide you want to wait a few months before booking it - that's OK with me! I want you to get the most out of them, which might involve timing it on your part.
What devices will the courses work on?
All courses are designed to be viewed with a web browser. They'll work on a computer, tablet or phone and tested with Chrome, Safari and Firefox. So long as you can watch videos you're good.
Can I take a course more than once?
Yep! You'll have full access to take and re-take each course from now until the end of time.
What if I have questions about the course?
There are a few options here!
How do I resume a course?
After logging in, you'll be able to see your current progress in all of your current courses on your dashboard. You can jump back into any course you've started from there, or check out the courses list to find a new course to start.
How long will I have access to the courses?
You'll have access for as long as Minafi is around (hopefully many years!). In the distant future when robots have risen and Minafi eventually shuts down, I'll give you a chance to download all content you've purchased before it disappears (assuming the robot overloads permit this).
Will I really get access to new courses?
Yep! There are no subscriptions here. Pay once and get access to everything. I can't guarentee how many more new courses there will be though. My aim it is to create courses on the most requested content and go from there. Once all the basics are covered, courses may be long and far between.
What's the difference between the free and paid courses?
Two big things. 1) The free courses target the most basic concepts for investing. These are a great place to get started though! 2) The free courses do not include videos. All of the paid courses include a bunch of videos each.
If I don't like the bootcamp can I get a refund?
Absolutely. There's a 30-day money back guarentee. This guarentee is for all plans. Just drop me a line and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
What is the format of the courses?
All courses on Minafi contain some combination of text, video, tasks, quizes and interactive elements. You can check out the course page for any course to see what is included.
The videos include some slides, but are often screencaptures of me actually investing or showing how to make real-world decisions. I love the interactive elements most. Those are helpful tools to visualize and understand topics using your own information and visualizing the results.
How long are the courses?
Each course on Minafi is different, but I try to keep them between 1 and 4 hours. This timeframe includes consuming content and completing all activies associated with the course. The total content for all courses right now is estimated to be 8 hours and 38 minutes. Whew, that's a lot!
Can I watch a course our of order?
You can. They're designed to be watched in order, but you should certainly skip lessons on topics you already know, or if you want to jump to learn a specific concept. Content is designed to build within each course, so lessons may reference parts from earlier in the course.
Give the Bootcamp a shot! If it's not a good fit,
you can get a full refund for 30 days.
