We work with clients around the country and conduct coaching sessions via Zoom. Zoom is a video conference platform that allows us to have a face-to-face meeting. Zoom, however, is not a requirement, we would be happy to work with you over a phone call if you prefer. To have a successful coaching session it is best to be in a quiet place that is distraction-free.
Financial coaches and financial advisors are not the same things. However, they are similar in a lot of respects. It isn’t a one or the other approach both can help elevate you financially. Often a financial coach will be the bridge to the advisor. It is said that personal finance is composed of 80% behavior and 20% knowledge. An advisor is more analytical, numbers and investments focused. A financial coach on the other hand is more focused on the 80%, behavior, your relationship with money. A coach will work with you on budgeting, getting out of debt, planning for big life events, and strategizing for retirement. An advisor will put together an investment portfolio and do complex financial planning. An easy analogy: an advisor is your workout routine, and a coach is a trainer. Lifting weights and doing cardio will get you results. Working with a trainer by your side, however, will help you stay accountable for getting into the gym, reminding you why you are working out, and cheering you on.
No, as financial coaches we are not licensed to provide investment advice. We can help go over qualities that make up a good investment advisor and provide referrals.
We make getting financial help affordable to everyone and work on a sliding scale. We charge by the hour or a flat rate for a package that includes multiple sessions. A financial coach can go over the details with you during your discovery session.
We want to put money back in your wallet, not drain it. Financial coaching is the best way to learn new money habits and put money problems behind you. You may be asking if this is something you can afford, but the real question is can you afford not to get help from a professional? All money situations are different and you don’t have to be ashamed of your financial situation. We are here to provide hope, understand your situation, and provide money guidance. We have seen all types of money scenarios. There is not a better way to get back on track with your money and create good money habits. This is an investment in yourself and your family. What are you worth?
Relationships are a two-way street, not a solo adventure. Managing your finances as a unit is the only way to have a successful outcome. Oftentimes, once couples start to engage in money conversations their tensions, are alleviated. We feel strongly about couples working together on their money goals and our coaches typically won’t move forward until both individuals are committed. If you’re having difficulty getting your spouse on board, talk with your coach.
A discovery session is when you and the coach will discuss financial goals, pain points, your current financial situation, your history, etc. To make effective use of the time have answers to some of these questions. At this point, you do not need to have any financial documents ready. Your coach will instruct you as you move along what other things may be needed.
We are glad you feel good about your financial situation. Like a car why not think about it as getting a performance tune-up or as regular maintenance like an oil change. Our financial coaches help people build wealth as much as helping them tackle financial struggles.
