Well, it’s my birthday today, so I’m getting older, but I’m in high spirits because younger people are so excited to learn new things.

Over the past week, a few younger blog readers (and even some old pros) have asked about where to find simple, self-contained, introductory finance courses…it just so happens we built one of these a few years ago.

We have an 8-part introduction to finance series, complete with problems and solutions.

Once the 8-part class is completed, we recommend you move on to a bit more advanced content at the following link:
