Start by learning and communicating in the language of Finance!

Hello! This is Jessica pictured here with our two Rhodesian Ridgebacks that we brought back from Africa.

My husband and I created a 100% Hand-built, DIY, Debt Free, Off-Grid home in Southwest Colorado - central to the greatest concentration of National Parks in the USA and one of the most beautiful locations on earth.

We started from scratch in a tent on 80 acres of Ranch Land with rolling hills. But that whole story is unique and you can see the details here if you are interested.

When you are over 60 years old you should be looking forward to retirement - right? But we both understood that "retirement" is very often synonymous with "packing it in".

We believe that this sort of Self Sufficiency is really how life should be. Anyone can do what we have done and no doubt MUCH better.

We had the advantage that comes with the certainty in understanding the basics of money, finance, investing and general economics.

My husband, Larry, understood the basics of Finance and Investing and designed a few interactive courses years ago to help others attain Financial Literacy. He founded COMPETENCE SOFTWARE for that purpose.

That knowledge gave us complete confidence that we could "reboot" our lifestyle with no concern about how we would obtain the needed "Money". 

If you can understand and communicate in the language of Finance, you are free from the dependency on "experts" and are well on your road to Financial Freedom and Independence.

Our courses simplify these complex subjects and that simplicity is THE KEY to Financial success as well as Financial Freedom and Independence.
