About Course

“We were not taught financial literacy in school. It takes a lot of work and time to change your thinking and to become financially literate”
– Robert Kiyosaki, Author: Rich Dad, Poor Dad

This free mini-course guides you to identify beliefs & core thought-patterns that keep you stuck in financial illiteracy. It is the first topic of a course that reveals the MINDSET GAPS I see in the majority of Papua New Guinea’n Entrepreneurs and individual Small Business Owners who are financially ILLITERATE. In other words, you:

⊗ Don’t keep proper business records

⊗ Don’t invest in proper and accurate bookkeeping, accounting and tax compliance in your business operations 

⊗ Don’t use the financial statements of your business to track the progress of your business and intentionally plan for financial success.


The more financially LITERATE you become, the SMARTER money moves you make!


The course is also suitable for aspiring business owners who have big dreams for their small business idea. It can be used as a money-mindset roadmap on that journey.

It was a good course. Good use of imagery and language to keep the course participants engaged and interested. The quiz was good but kept putting emphasis on one point only (I am not a business) would recommend putting the quiz maybe after another section so you can ask a range of questions to test knowledge. Overall great experience and will recommend for others to attend.

It took me some time to get the course complete as I was busy working, but overall this course is the best for anyone thinking to start their own business, money management is vital to build any business, this course is just an eye opener to the financial world.
My first time to learn business and it has thought me alot. All lessons were made in a way primary school children can understand which helped me alot.

Thank you so much and looking forward to invest in similar courses in the future.
