Questions answered in this podcast

Getting started → Chad

I am currently building my emergency fund, and then on towards either saving for a house deposit or continue renting and starting investing in ETFs, is there a suggested roadmap for the free courses that can give me good fundamental knowledge while I save, that once my emergency is complete I can then seek out a financial adviser and make an informed decision for which route I go. Please and Thankyou
