  4. The VIM Club 1-to-1 Sessions Structure

During the first year of the course with me, these are what we will be going through:

The transfer of knowledge is the first part. This is to recap on the foundations of value investing & options selling. It will be done in 8 sessions over the course of 4 months (2 sessions each month).

The second part is about the actions. It will revolve mainly on creating and refining your stock watchlist and practicing analysing companies. This will be done from session 9 to 11 (about 1.5 months).

The third and final part is about the applications. By session number 12 and beyond, you should already be able to analyse your own companies and make your own investment decisions that will bring you good investment results.

Overall, completing all the 3 parts will take us about 6 months of 2 sessions per month for a grand total of 12 sessions.

After the 12 sessions, we will focus more on refining your own decision making skills with regard to your investment over the long run. Monitoring what matters - which is your investment returns based on your own decision will be the focus for our learning and improvements for decades to come.
