Who are we? And why did we decide to create this course?
We are 2 plain vanilla, ordinary retail investors from Singapore.
We manage our own money. And we have zero experience working in a fund or large money institution.
We started sharing our investment ideas and thoughts publicly on Twitter just a year ago. We did so purely out of passion and a mad obsession with stock investing.
Overtime, we started getting a ton of questions from investors in the stock market about how to grow their wealth.
Through these conversations, we saw that many people are investing in stocks, but without proper understanding of the businesses they are buying...
99% of new investors face these fears and frustrations. Can you relate to any of them?
😭 You don’t know how to analyze and value a business properly and know whether it’s a solid company that can keep growing for the next 5-10 years or not
😭 You are exposed to too much noise in the news and social media. Your emotions swing widely between fear and excitement, instead of relying on your logic to make investment decisions
😭 Even if you buy the stock of a company, you sometimes don’t even know why you’re really buying it. And your hands turn to paper when the stock drops 30% or more.
😭 You don’t know how to value the business you buy and what is the intrinsic value of the company. So when the market crashes, you sell out in fear because you have no idea how much your business is truly worth. And you end up making a loss.
😭 You have a full time job 9-5 or don’t have enough hours in a week to analyze companies too deeply. But yet you want to develop this skill of your own, so you can make your own investing decisions with confidence!
You'll learn from 2 ordinary investors who built their wealth and achieved financial freedom from investing:
I caught the investing bug as a teenager when I was working as a cashier.
That sent me down the investing rabbit hole and I soaked up all the wisdom I could about Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger and other investing greats.
The love of investing stuck with me through college and my full time job in public service. After investing for 14 years, I was able to leave my job (paying almost 6 figures) at the age of 31 to write about investing and manage my portfolio full time.
I started investing while still working full time in my 9-5 job.
As the only free time I had was on weekends, I had to get creative and develop my own mental shortcuts to analyze stocks in the shortest time. This taught me what metrics to zoom into, what to ignore, and helped me sharpen my research process.
With the correct mentors and investing strategy, I crossed my first $1 Million at the age of 29.

What This Course is NOT About:
❌ This is NOT a get-rich program. We cover skill sets and mindsets only. The results and outcomes of your investments will definitely be different from ours
❌ There will NOT be any stock tips or ideas given in this class, only case studies to learn from. We teach the skills, so you can go hunt for your own food.
❌ This is NOT an investing community and support program. We will only focus on education, and there is no post-program support and community. You are expected to be independent and a fast learner
❌ We do NOT cover banks, financial companies, dividend plays, cyclicals and commodities etc. Only high-quality compounders
❌ We do NOT cover microcaps or companies still in pre-revenue phase (biotech, mining etc.)
WHO Is This Course Most Suitable For?
✅ You want a step by step manner to analyze companies and stocks... understand their future potential... and know how to find winning stocks that can grow your wealth
✅ You are more focused on acquiring skills than results. You want to learn how to be self-reliant and know how to analyze a company from start to finish. The investment results are not your priority
✅ You don’t want to spend months analyzing a stock (because you either work full time or have other commitments). And you want to learn how to analyze a company in just a few hours, by focusing on the key metrics and knowing what to ignore
✅ You want to learn through practice and hands-on in class itself... instead of just listening to a bunch of theory and concepts (our class is 100% hands-on and you will be analyzing companies on the spot and building the muscle memory)
But This is NOT for Everyone. Do NOT Come Aboard If…
⛔️ You expect lots of hand holding and support. Like mentioned above, there is no post-program community or support. This is focused only on education.
⛔️ You are a smart alec and already know everything. This program is mainly for people who are open minded and willing to learn.
⛔️ You are NOT willing to engage and participate. We plan to make our classes fun and interactive, so you will need to turn on your cameras, do some activities, speak up, and also do some simple homework after each session. If you are unwilling, then this is unsuitable.
⛔️ You are an asshole :)
