hey there!

Tara Falcone, CFP®

My name is Tara, and I'm on a mission to help you understand the seemingly complicated world of investing. I want to empower YOU to take control of YOUR financial future.

Like it or not, the wealth gap is widening. But if we level the financial playing field, we can all benefit from that abundance. I believe that can be done through high quality, credible, and - most important - FREE educational resources. 

That's why I've combined my blue collar background and Wall Street know-how to create an easy-to-understand curriculum for you to follow.

Don't worry. Unlike other sites, I use layman's terms to break down investment concepts into bite-sized, digestible pieces. I've also laid out my lessons in a logical fashion, so you'll start making connections immediately.

It's time to "rise up" with ReisUP.  Check out the curriculum below to start learning today.


My goal for this blog is to provide you a candid, no bullshit view on investing, especially as it pertains to millennials. That means I’ll be telling stories about my wins and my losses, sharing insights and observations, and dishing out some tough love when needed.

If you enjoy my posts, please comment and share! Together, we can end the taboo of money talk.

the curriculum

Want to go from investing newbie to savvy stock picker but don’t know where to start?

Have you tried to learn about investing in the past, but couldn't figure out how all of the different concepts tie together? I feel you. It took me a good six months on the job to see how concepts like revenue, stock price, and debt all fit into the bigger picture. 

So, unlike other investing info sites, which post content haphazardly, ReisUP's resources are laid out in a logical fashion. If your question is "I want to learn about investing. Where do I start?", I can show you.

I built this curriculum to teach you about investing in the order that I wish I had learned it. Each unit builds upon the one before it, as do the posts within each unit. The videos are numbered, so make sure to watch them in order to get their full benefit. 

New content is added to the curriculum every week, so make sure to SUBSCRIBE below to stay updated on all of this useful investing info!
