Investment Coaching 

Workshops, Masterclasses, and Retreats to build passive income. 
Take financial freedom into your own hands.


Ten years ago, I was at a crossroads – I wanted to leave my 9-5 job, see the world and still be financially flourishing… but how? I wanted freedom, flexibility and more purpose in life. With only my investing hobby as income, I was able to achieve everything I wanted.

Financial freedom is a dream for many, an opportunity to “live the life you want.” Making passive income on the stock market can help achieve this goal, but most people struggle with how to seize this opportunity. If you are in this boat, you’re not alone – and it's not too late!

My name is Joy and I have dedicated my life to helping people achieve financial independence, allowing them to be more free and flexible. In my courses, I turn my 15 yrs of experience as a successful equities investor into a program that equips you with the skills to become a good investor. With a wellness approach, I help you to overcome fears and address your overall goals while connecting them to financial planning. You will be amazed at how easy it is to have a proper financial strategy based on the lifestyle you want.

Welcome to investing with joy. If any of this resonates then let’s have a chat.

Your one precious life is waiting for you!

SATISFY YOUR CURIOSITY

FAQs 

1. Why did I start this group? 

Winning means NOT being on afraid to lose.
If you are so scared to lose your money that you don’t do anything with your savings, then you are in fact actually losing money to inflation each year. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I absolutely feel that fear but the potential of winning or retiring at 31 was much more energizing and exciting to me than the prospect of playing it safe and not having freedom over my own time until I’m in my 70s. 

I began this group because I want to help friends make their money/savings work for them and teach financial literacy and how to build passive income. I realized investing in the stock market can be pretty intimidating and people are very scared to lose their hard earned money.  Rightfully so, emotional gambling is very toxic so I created workshops and a support community educate and "de-mystify the market".

2. Why is it important to be a part of an investing community?

"If you want to go fast go alone; if you want to go far go together". 

We've survived this long on the planet because of tribes and communities. Same applies for investing. I passionately believe in the power of community and knowledge sharing to help us achieve more. We have social events, yoga, meditations, psychology talks, speakers, and weekly insights (recommended readings, videos, podcasts, stock recommendations). Savings accounts and mutual funds return 2%, we are targeting 10%+ returns and in a fun and engaging way.

3. What is the vision for the group?

The vision for the group is:

1. Teach about financial literacy, investing, FIRE, financial freedom.
2. Help friends build a better relationship with money. 
3. Share my values around Financial Wellness. 
4. Focus on investing psychology, mindset. 
5. Build an engaged, unified group where we support & motivate each other in becoming better investors. 
6. Win -win. I genuinely want friends to get more out of their savings (if my peers win, I win and we all make money together.)
7. This is NO ordinary financial group, everyone is responsible for making group awesome.  
8. Make looking at numbers more fun!

4. Do I need any experience to take the workshop?

Zero. Just a keen interest in learning about companies, sectors, trends, fundamentals, correlations, and most importantly, mindset.

5. How much money do I need to get started?

Min $100. Recommended $10,000.

6. What kind of returns are your past students making after your workshop?

On average it takes about 1-3mo to make the money back from the course. You will be setting up your own portfolio under my guidance while being accountable to the group. Past students are making between 20-50% returns. This also depends on if you implemented your portfolio correctly as well as market factors we can not control. Part commitment, part investment amount and part market conditions.

7. Who should attend the intro or advanced workshop?

For those who wants to learn investing so whether you have zero experience or have a bit of experience and be more disciplined in your approach. This intro courses for you if you want to:
- Be hand held because you simply don’t know where to begin
- Begin building passive income
- De-Mystify the stock market
- Learn a holistic approach to investing
- Start your own business
- Move to a new country
- Take a year off to travel or be location independent without JUST BURNING through savings
- Work from Anywhere
- Live anywhere (with internet)
- Take a break because enough is enough
AND you will have a loving, non-judgmental community of people who will support you on your journey of financial investing.

What to Expect:
We’ll of course have fun too! I have a whole lineup of activities: sharing circles, yoga, meditation, trading simulation games that will help you not only help change your mindset ­– we’ll get you started with trading in the stock market with CONFIDENCE! 🧘🏻‍♀️🕺🏻🎉

8. What does the workshop entail and cost?

My goal is to empower others to make the most out of their savings in an educated, safe way. I experimented a lot in the past 15 years as a private investor and will be your investing mentor. 

By the end of the workshop you will have opened up your trading account, know my strategy/structure/rules for investing, how to evaluate stocks and create a portfolio of Long term & ST stocks. 📈

The workshop is set up over a month so you can research, open up a brokerage account, ask questions and also absorb information at a comfortable pace. After the course, you will have five 1-1 sessions with me to customize your portfolio and unlimited, lifelong access to me and a community of awesome investors 🤩.

The time commitment is 5 hours per week including homework for the 1st month and after that very little. Cost for the 1 month workshop and 1-1 checkins for a year after = $2K USD
15% off if you bring a friend to the same workshop 👭🏻 

9. What's the format of the Intro Workshop?

The exact dates and times are decided as a group once you have confirmed and paid. This is an ongoing program begins with a 4 week workshop of 12 hours class time (4 classes x 3 hours each). The first month will give you plenty of time to digest, research, you’ll learn about the stock market, trading and investing, and the 1 year investment mentorship program kicks off after to help you fully setup your long term portfolio 1-1 so you can just leave it, and not have to worry about it.

10. What does mindset or psychology have to do with investing?

This is not your typical conference room investing class. I have been asked why I include yoga, meditation or sharing circles in my investing workshops? Why we talk about our debilitating fears around money? Having fear is normal and it's there to keep you safe. But sometimes it can keep you stuck. In order to experience a life of freedom and joy, you need to have your mental, physical and financial wellness working together in the direction of your goals. 

Many people, myself included, struggle with a deep sense of unworthiness. This class is aimed at dissolving some of your fears around money so that you attract more abundance into your life. I have spent the past decade trying to build the life I always dreamed of and I can only trust myself to trade when I’m in a good space headspace.

There’s a reason why 90% of investors and lose 90% of their money in 90 days. It’s about mindset. I can help you consciously transform and get started with investing with the right mix of knowledge, strategy and tools!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Testimonials

  • I can’t thank Joy enough.This workshop has equipped me with the knowledge to start my financial freedom journey!

    Being new to investing I didn’t know where to start. I felt there was a lot of risk but I knew that managing my investments was in my best interest. I don’t know anyone that reached financial freedom before retirement age with commercial means of financial advising/investing. I came across Joy’s class and felt comfortable taking the leap and it was  more than worth it! Joy’s teaching approach to investing is concise and to the point while engaging. She was always open to answering  any questions and made successful investing easy to understand for someone with no prior knowledge or experience. I particularly enjoyed the unique exercises encompassing areas of motivation and mindfulness that I have found very beneficial in my everyday life.can’t thank Joy enough.This workshop has equipped me with the knowledge to start my financial freedom journey!

  • I've attended other investment seminars before and they were all so boring, technical, which left me feeling even more intimidated and fearful about investing. I would literally fall asleep!

    Joy's course was nothing like that. She is an expert communicator and is fantastic at simplifying concepts for even the utmost beginner to understand. She focuses on tackling emotional and psychological issues around money, and I feel lighter, more hopeful and inspired to learn more, after doing the workshop course with her.

    The community building that Joy does naturally is amazing - she brings groups of people together that she meets through her various passions, and that support continues for your investing journey as well. Its brilliant to have Joy and other like-minded people help you as you start your investing journey!

  • Joy is a master at channeling and multiplying her energy to achieve her goals. 

    She has developed strong methods for honest introspection, understanding of her values, and positive energy, and she is passionate about spreading them. I have known Joy for years. She helped me start my stock market investment journey tackling the fears and emotional elements as well as de-mystifying the actual trading part. Her courses are unique and I am not surprised they attract very successful people I could learn from too. Don't be fooled by the relaxed appearance of a leisure lady: Joy has super-powers over her body and mind. She is generous and any association with her will improve your life, make you rich and happy.

  • Joy’s course is very easy to understand as a non investor! 

    She gives you a breakdown of facts and her own experiences, which makes it a personal and tangible learning experience. She is flexible in her learning approach and availability plus she guides / coaches the group to learn and share.  She shares many facets for a beginning investor and also gives a sneak preview of the more advanced elements of investing (i.e. Short term investing and what to do and don't do).  Highly recommend for the starting investor, especially on where to start with investing!

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the investing for beginners course with you Joy! Thank you so much! 

    Loved the relaxed nature and the holistic approach you take towards investing. You have a great energy about you. Made me feel like no question is silly and, equipped me with the basic but essential foundations to get me started on my investing journey. Particularly love how you are so generous with her time and open about all your experiences along your own investing journey. The group setting has been really good for sharing ideas and acting as a sounding board. I’m also looking forward to our one to one sessions and the tailored advice on cleaning up and deploying my portfolio. Thank you so much!

  • I took Joy's workshop last year because I wasn't happy with my banks returns and LOVED IT! 

    It was a small group of five where I felt safe to share and the class was very eye opening - Understanding Market Psychology. I wanted to trade myself for a long time but felt intimidated and confused by all the Banks options. After the class, I had an initial target of 10% annual returns, but now I'm up 15% in just a few months! Well worth the investment. Thank you Joy!
