How will this process work?
First, we will have a conversation, so we will both understand what needs you may have. Secondly, we will email some MS Excel spreadsheet forms for you to fill out and email back. Thirdly, we will review your forms and set up a face-to-face or phone meeting to go over the forms together – that might last a couple of hours. Lastly, suggestions will be made during that meeting to help you adjust your finances to make your money work for you. We can schedule a 30 minute follow-up phone meeting for about a month later to make sure you are on track to financial freedom. Additional meetings can be provided, if needed.
How much does Financial Coaching cost?
Basic Coaching: $120. Achieve control of your current situation as you move through Baby Steps 1-3. How would it feel to be debt free and have an emergency fund in place?
Budget Basics Class : $200. Learn the basics of budgeting – bring me in for an onsite seminar for groups of up to 30 people.
Who needs to attend the meeting with me?
If you are married, your spouse will need to attend the meeting with you, so you will both be on the same page with your finances. If your spouse is not onboard with you, you will not have success. Please wait until you are both ready for this adventure. If you are single, then you can come alone or you can bring an accountability partner with you. This can be a friend, family member or anyone you give permission to know your business and speak into your life for advice and correction.
