Rask’s Money & Budgeting: The Complete Guide is designed for Aussies who want to ‘kickstart’ their finances, get in the right lane and supercharge their journey to financial independence (FI) — ASAP.

We’re confident people who take this course and action all of the steps could save (or make) tens of thousands of dollars — at least.

For example, did you know the difference between a bad Super fund and a good one could be equivalent to 13 years of lost wages for a 21-year-old? This course provides the basics and steps required to make simple and easy — but life-changing — decisions to improve your finances, including:

  • Paying down debt
  • Sticking to a budget that’s simple
  • Understanding what investing is and how it works for normal people
  • All of the basics and need-to-know terms for sorting out Super, insurance and Wills
  • The basics of tax in Australia

While we say this is a beginner’s program it covers just about everything you will want to know about these topic areas to make educated decisions, engage with a professional with confidence and help to set yourself up for financial success.

    I really liked it, it’s all the basic information I required to set me up to start thinking about my personal finances. The best part of all, I have felt like this shit is above me since I left school and that it was for someone else to worry about. (Im now 25 – how embarrasing). Honestly I would even go as far as to say I found it empowering.

      You’re a legend, Sandri. Well done and thanks for taking the time to say such nice things.

    Very informative, good presentation and simple to understand. Quiz was very encouraging where you find out you DID actually learn something. Thanks for your efforts in bringing clarity to an often confusing subject.

    I’m glad I took this course. I had completed the Superannuation one and gained so much from it, and I was intending to go straight to the Beginners Investing course (what I actually came looking for in the first place), I thought ‘I’m pretty good with budgeting and money, it might not be the best use of my time’, but it really was. It is such a great comprehensive guide and I would highly recommend it to anyone. And now I just think I’ll be even more set up to breeze through the investing course. Thank you!

    Smashed it in one sitting. Very easy to digest, and easy to understand. As someone who’s already had a few of these steps checked off, it was validating to see that I had started down the right path and was on my way. There is valuable information for setting up a budget for investing (who knew it could include a holiday) and then the basics of getting started with investing.

    • Tahlia Zanjani (verified owner)

      Boom! One sitting – love this, nothing like ripping the bandaid off and getting it done. I hope you’ve managed that holiday since! Cheers to your financial future ~ Tahlia

    Though I’d like to think I’m beyond a beginner in terms of personal finance knowledge compared to most Australians, having read and completed all of Rask education’s free online courses out of curiosity (and as a personal sense check), I must say this course is by the far best one of the lot – and I too learnt some new tips and tricks.

    I’ll definitely be recommending this one to my friends who are not as finance savvy as myself – and are tired of hearing me rabbiting on at gatherings that they need to get their orders in check!

    Great set of information across all kinds of money + investing areas. Really excellent information, easily presented in nicely digestible chunks. Not overwhelming (and there is a lot of info so could easily be overwhelmed). Best course of this kind I’ve seen, plus it’s free! Wish a lot of this info was taught in schools.

    This is such a great course that covers so much ground. Just enough so that it’s not overwhelming and touches on so many areas. Thanks so much for this thoughtfully created course and making it available for free. I am learning so much through Rask Education.
