About the Instructor

Course Creator Dan Poirier

Hey there, my name is Dan. I'm 30 years old. I've been around the block and done a few things. I've been a volunteer firefighter, a forest firefighter on a helitack crew, a paramedic, a structural firefighter, a guy who surgically removed eye tissue for transplant, and most recently a training officer. You might notice that none of these things seem related to personal finance. I am not a financial advisor, or an accountant, or a CFP. What I am however is a highly motivated guy, with quite a bit of experience teaching firefighters, and a huge interest in personal finance. I have had a lot of success in my financial journey, but with that success came years of struggle trying to learn all of the things that I feel the public school system failed to teach me. Whether that was the school system's fault, or my fault for being a bad student when I was a kid is up for debate. Regardless, the aim of this program is to use my plain english, rough around the edges teaching style to shave off the years of struggle I had to go through in order to speed up your process of learning a lot of what I know today. I am known to get a little fired up about topics that I'm passionate about sometimes, but my approach to teaching has always been one of positivity and encouragement.
