So why is this course free?

The Rask Australia property course with Amy Lunardi, Chris Bates and Owen Rask is totally free.

It costs you zilch. Nudda. Zero!

We also do NOT accept any commissions, kickbacks or fees from ANY of our course instructors, affiliates or partners.

This is just one reason why Rask is different from just about every bank, financial education service, business podcast network, investment research or financial advice business.

We stand for YOU.

So why do we do things for free? What’s in it for us?

Our mission is to help you live life on your own T&Cs.

Our team didn’t win the birth lottery. We didn’t grow up in fancy houses with lots of money. Nor did we have parents that knew everything about high finance. We had to learn the hard way… and it wasn’t easy.

We dream of a world when everyone has equal access to honest, trustworthy information and courses from anyway, at any time.

So how do we make money?

Just so you know, we make money by charging a small subscription fee to our loyal members who choose to join us for expert investment advice.
