Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School
Due to a tremendous response and a finite number of textbooks, registration is now closed. We encourage you to attend even if you have not registered. All attendees have the opportunity to participate in the in-person and online sessions.


This low-key, novel learning experience combines in-person and online sessions to delve into Millionaire Teacher by Andrew Hallam. Each week, participants can discuss a chapter of Hallam's book online and learn how the teacher built a million-dollar portfolio before he turned 40. Participants may borrow Millionaire Teacher for the entire eight-week class. Participate at your own pace on the discussion blog. Registration includes all sessions. For adults and high school seniors. In partnership with Howard County Financial Education Alliance. Presented by Robert Wasilewski, President of RW Investment Strategies.

Introductory session: Jun 20 (Thu) 7 - 8:30 pm
Midway session: Jul 23 (Tue) 7 - 8:30 pm
Blog available beginning Jun 20 at millionaireteacheronlinestudy.blogspot.com

Robert Wasilewski is president of RW Investment Strategies in Glenelg. He authors a blog dedicated to the do-it-yourself investor: rwinvesting.blogspot.com.

*Registration is required. Register online or by calling 410.313.1950.
