Teri Ijeoma is the Founder and CEO of Invest With Teri, a company on a mission to equip people with the knowledge and skills to change their lives by mastering the stock market. Invest With Teri offers a global online education course called Trade and Travel, where you can learn how to trade stocks and earn money in the stock market.

1. Is the Trade and Travel course for new investors?

Yes, this investing course is for both new investors and experienced investors. You’ll learn how to pick good companies, place a trade, manage risk, and more. Teri shares her risk management plan for more advanced traders and teaches you how to trade options in the VIP Investor Program.

Teri Ijeoma’s Trade and Travel is a self-paced course with over 100 hours of video training, that helps everyday people trade stocks for income.

Teri recommends taking two weeks per class so you can practice what was discussed. The Trade and Travel course is broken down into four sections, and modules include videos, tutorials, pdf worksheets, quizzes, and more. It should take you 8+ weeks to complete.

3. What will I learn in this course?

The 8-week program is divided into Part 1 — the Trade and Travel flagship course, which consists of four modules including:

  • Intro to the stock market
  • How to pick good companies to trade
  • How to read charts to find the best time to purchase stocks
  • Risk management 
    • How to protect yourself from losing money
  • Technical analysis 

This course shares everything Teri wishes she knew before trading. It walks you through the seven steps she takes every time she places a trade.

The second half of the program includes three additional advanced courses and small group coaching. Here are the topics covered in VIP:

  • Shorting (making money when the stock goes down)
  • Options
  • Gaps, moving averages, etc. 

4. How much does the course cost? 

The course costs $2,500 (four modules), while the full VIP experience (additional three modules with group coaching) costs $5,000.

Yes, you can always upgrade to VIP and pay the $2,500 difference. I purchased the course to learn the basics and when I’m ready for advanced strategies I will upgrade.

8. Why am I being charged more than the advertised $2,500 (Trade and Travel) or $5,000 (VIP Program)?

The additional charge you’re seeing is from sales tax. Sales tax is added after you add your billing address.

Taxes differ by state.

Practice trading with simulators from TradeStation, TD Ameritrade and TradingView.

The goal is to make 1% of your cash amount per day. For example, if you want to make $100 per day, you should have $10,000 in your brokerage account.

Teri has over ten years of trading experience. In addition to learning through trial and error, she has spent thousands taking courses to become a better investor.

16. Why did you purchase the course?

I met Teri in 2018 at FinCon, a conference for personal finance content creators and brands. I was captivated by her story. Through trading stocks, she quit her job and enjoyed traveling the world. Seeing a Black woman confidently talk about investing in the stock market was so inspiring! I admire Teri and all that she has accomplished personally and professionally with Invest With Teri.

At FinCon, Teri and I recorded a podcast episode together. You can listen to Episode 7: How Teri Ijeoma Trades and Travels Full-Time.

Prioritizing location independence and financial freedom, I bought the course because trading can be one way to supplement my income and earn more money both for the short-term and long-term. Trading is also a valuable skillset I can use to create generational wealth and change the trajectory of my family’s life.
