MPowered Couple is a course intended for committed couples wanting to build a financial foundation in their relationship. The course is laid out in five units, which include four lessons and one “date-night” activity that can be executed at your own pace each week. We recommend you commit to doing this over a five-week period; however, if you get on a roll and want to move ahead more quickly or life happens and you need a slower pace, this course will accommodate!

Throughout the course you will learn principles of personal finance, dive into understanding your own financial strengths and areas for improvement, and then focusing on your financial values and goals as a couple. By the end of this course you and your significant other will be more mindful of each other’s financial preferences, have set financial goals, have a strategy for how you use money to reach your goals, and feel empowered as a couple that you are on your path to being financially secure.

What You’ll Learn

1

Course Introduction and Principles of Personal Finance

This Unit is focused on setting you up for success in the course. You will learn more about your instructor, the course agenda, and rules of thumb within the personal financial planning field that will help equip you and your partner with information to make sound financial choices.

2

Taking Stock of Your Individual Financial Picture

While this course is designed for couples, it is important that we all know our individual financial self. This Unit will guide you through assessing your credit report, your current assets and liabilities, and your individual financial habits.

3

Setting Your Financial Foundation Together

After having individual thought about what you want, this Unit will be about bringing that individual information back to your partner to set common goals, organize your financial information as a couple, and define your roles, so that as a couple you are maximizing your strengths.

4

Building Your Financial Team

It is important that we surround ourselves with financial resources that will ensure and support us on our way to financial security. This education based unit will help you as a couple decide who you want to be your financial support system.

5

Maintaining Your Financial Foundation

As the course draws to a close, you will have a strong financial foundation built with your partner. It’s important that you maintain that foundation going forward. This unit is designed to ensure you have methods to stay on the same page.

How It Works

Fully Online

This is an online course that can be accessed with any device (we would recommend using a computer) that has internet access.

5 Units

There are five individual units, which are detailed in the above section. The units are individually released allowing students to immerse themselves in one topic allowing for as much growth and knowledge to be transferred as possible.

Two Months of Access

Students have access to the course information 24/7 for two months from the course start date. Therefore, students can access the information when it works best. There are five units, so by having the course accessible for additional time this allows four weeks for students to re-read units and/or catch-up if life happens.

Tuesday Emails

Each Monday of the course your instructor will send an email to introduce the week’s topic and provide encouragement for the week ahead.

Individualized Email with Instructor Weekly

As part of each Unit, there are prompted questions/discussion points for an email communication with the course instructor. You choose which items you want to discuss with your instructor via email. You have the sole discretion to determine how much you want to share with your instructor. Each couple receives a personalized, timely response to these communications. Our goal is to ensure each couple reaches their goals for taking the course.

Progress Tracker

Once the course begins, you have 24 hour access to course materials until the course end date. MPower Co uses ZippyCourses to deliver the course content, which tracks the progress of each couple. This allows couples to know where they stopped so they can pick up right where they left off.

Downloadable Worksheets

 Throughout the course there are a number of downloadable worksheets (digital assets inventory, an expense tracker, to name a couple). You are able to download the blank form, edit them, and retain them in your records.

Communication Activities

Communicating about personal finance can be fun! In each unit there is a date-night activity. The purpose is to increase your communication around finances and build experiences with each other around finance. Add a nicer meal to the activity and call it a date night!

A Plan Tailor Made For You

This course is about you setting your goals with your partner, instead about having them set for you. Walking away from the course you and your partner will have your own individualized plan to reach financial security.

Open Communication Lines

In society money is a taboo topic, but in relationships it can be key to much more than just the bottom line of bank accounts. This course will help you make financial discussions routine within your relationship.

Financial Education Included

No matter the financial sophistication of each individual within your couple, this course gives you rules of thumb within personal finance. You choose if these are potential guidelines and guardrails are right for you. At a minimum this will equip you both with adequate information to ensure decisions you are making together are sound.
