Your Outcome

Back to Basics is a straightforward, actionable course that will teach you to spend according to your values, save money (even if you’re scraping by), and create a budget that doesn’t feel restrictive.

They didn’t teach this in school.

You know more about algebra and cell anatomy than you do about how to actually *adult.*


You still remember the quadratic formula, but you have no idea how to start saving money.


Listen— you’re not alone. Over half of millennial and Gen-Z women feel lost when it comes to their finances.



That's why Tori built Back to Basics.


Back to Basics is your straight-A solution to every time you thought— “why the hell was I not taught this in school?”


It’s a course built to give you a well-rounded foundation in personal finance— boring lectures and monotone professors excluded (prep yourself instead for Chalamet references and Leslie Knope gifs.)

Learn How to Spend Mindfully, Save Money, and Make a Budget (Without Wanting to Die) with meme-filled modules, downloads, and actionable homework to *finally* feel financially confident.



Hey, I’m Tori. This is my story.

It started with one.

One friend coming to me for money advice after I graduated from college.

Then another.

Then hundreds of thousands.

Because I grew up with a financial education from my parents, I just assumed everyone knew the same things I did.

However, I quickly learned that most women are at a severe disadvantage when it comes to their money and career knowledge.

I watched female friends get paid less than their worth. I read stories about women being denied career opportunities because they were seen as “less.” I had sexist, negative comments said to me at work by male colleagues. So, I had to fight back.

Fast forward four years, and I’m still fighting.

Only now, I get to do it as a career…

… and what started out as a favor to a small group of friends has transitioned into helping over 500,000 women get the financial education they deserve.


This is for you if:


✔️ You’re at the beginning of your money journey and wondering where to start


✔️ The word “budgeting” makes you break out in hives


✔️ You get to the end of the month and wonder, “where did all my money go?!”


✔️ You hate your budgeting app or a spreadsheet (especially when it yells at you that you went “over budget”)


✔️ You don’t know how to balance spending with saving


✔️ You’re tired of wasting your money on stupid shit


✔️ You want to *finally understand* what a high yield savings account, Roth IRA, or 401(k) is


✔️ You feel like your money is controlling you rather than the other way around


What you’ll learn:


✔️ How to spend money accordingly to your values


✔️ How to balance saving money while spending


✔️ My favorite method for tracking purchases to make smart spending decisions


✔️ My strategy for saving money that has helped clients save THOUSANDS


✔️ How to know if a purchase is “worth it”


✔️ How to budget— no apps OR spreadsheets required


✔️ The easiest way to save money — without having to think about it


✔️ The *exact* financial accounts you should have to set yourself up for success


✔️ How to create sabotage-proof money goals with a system that helps you *actually* achieve them

What Students Say

"I learned so much in such a short amount of time during the course! Tori has amazing tips on budgeting, saving, and so many resources to help along the way. I would recommend anyone purchase this course if they are interested in getting control of their personal finances!”

Sabrine

“ I took the Back to Basics course with Tori and learned SO MUCH! Taking financial education into my own hands felt so empowering and I’m happy that I was able to support a woman leader in the industry."

Anna

“Back to Basics was so easy to understand. I knew I was supposed to be saving money, but I never knew what I supposed to be doing with those savings. I’m already ¾ of the way to my emergency fund savings goal!”

Katie

Best few hours of my life. I don’t want to speak too soon, but I really feel something in me starting to shift as far as how I handle, view, and spend money. This course came right in time!”

Liza

"Before Tori, my knowledge of personal finance was essentially ‘spend less than you make‘ and ‘save some money for retirement.’ After Back to Basics, I feel like I know how to use money to build a life I’m excited about instead of feeling anxious about every dollar I spend."

Moji

“Very informative and helpful. This course helped me really get a handle on my finances in a way I never had before."

Hannah

"The way you explain shit in this course makes me feel less incompetent and I really appreciate that. Simple, concise, and also thorough. Thank you so much for all the advice!”

Jessica

“While incredibly insightful, Back to Basics was seriously a blueprint to my longtime goal of obtaining financial freedom. More than just an agenda however, I feel no one else could have taught this subject matter with the same charisma and drive to educate and empower. Money and I are forever grateful to Tori.”

Pauline

“Woah. Just finished this course. Life-changing.”
