Frequently Asked Questions

Where are classes held? 2018-04-15T02:05:14+00:00

For the live version of The Financial Coach Academy, the meetings are held online (virtual), meaning you can attend in the comfort of your own home, wherever your home may be.  Classes are held on Thursdays where you will join Kelsa and Michael in a private online web conference room using Zoom. For the self-paced version of The Financial Coach Academy, the meetings are all recorded and available immediately so you can watch any where at any time.

What will I learn in the Financial Coach Academy? 2018-02-20T03:39:42+00:00

Practical steps to taking your personal finance advice and knowledge and crafting a business model around it- everything from contracts and pricing to scheduling and marketing). We want you to learn from our mistakes and successes and implement them to create a successful Financial Coaching business.

What will I be able to to do with the information I learn from during the Financial Coach Academy? 2018-02-20T03:42:20+00:00

You will be able to take your knowledge and passion for personal finance and turn it into a successful Financial Coaching business that you can build from the ground up.

What qualifications or certifications are required to take the Financial Coach Academy? 2018-02-20T03:44:48+00:00

None! Just a passion for helping people with their personal finances!  Some people may classify you as a certified budget geek. Don’t worry. We love budget geeks. You will be in good company.

What if I can’t join live or I have to miss a class? 2018-02-20T03:44:01+00:00

No problem.  All of the live online workshops are recorded and posted in the online training database along with powerpoints for each presentation, worksheets, templates and other forms and files.

What are the differences between the live course, self paced and self paced VIP? 2018-05-14T18:44:12+00:00

There are three options available for Financial Coach Academy:

Option #1: Self-Paced

The Self-Paced version of Financial Coach Academy gives you all of the recorded lessons, downloads, templates and videos that you would get in the Live Course but at the speed that works best for your busy life. If you are working a full time job and/ or have a busy family life this might be the best option for you. The only thing that you don’t get is the 24/7 guidance and feedback from Kelsa, Michael and other students concurrently taking t

he live course. If you are self-motivated, a self-starter and/ or are extremely limited on time this is the best option for you!

Option #2: Self-Paced VIP

The Self-Paced VIP option offers the same recorded lessons, videos and access to all of the downloads and templates in the VIP but adds two 60 minute mentoring sessions with Kelsa and/ or Michael.  We recommend that those two 60 minute mentoring sessions take place after you finish the fourth lesson and soon after the final lesson. In these mentoring sessions we will help you trouble shoot your Financial Coaching business, client issues, strategize your next steps and any other issues that you need our experience and expertise to help tackle. This option is great for people that need flexibility in schedule to complete the course but want some mentorship, feedback, accountability and one-on-one coaching from our Financial Coaching experts.

Option #3: Live Course

We feel the biggest bang for your buck is the live course. It is only available twice per year (February and Septem

ber) so timing is the biggest reason people choose the Self-paced over the Live Course. The Live course offers weekly live online lessons followed with Q and A and mastermind sessions and also access to the recordings of those sessions for future reference or if you missed the live lesson.

It also offers access to the amazingly active Private Facebook group so you have 24/7 online feedback, mentorship, mastermind and accountability with your classmates and instructors. While you get the same lessons and information as the Self-Paced courses, you will have your Financial Coaching business up and running more quickly and completely realized by the end of the course because of the level of support and accountability you get with your classmates and with Kelsa and Michael.

What are my next steps? 2018-03-22T04:28:56+00:00

Register for the next live session now! Space is limited to 20 people and every round of the Academy thus far has sold out! If your preference is to join the live conversation, do not delay. If you’re interested in taking the self-paced course, you can purchase the course and begin learning immediately! Or if you have questions you can call us at (480) 788-4588 or email info@fiscalfitnessphx.com to set up a discovery session to find out why this program may be right for you.

Do you teach the basics of personal finance? 2018-02-20T03:41:08+00:00

We do not cover specific financial topics (i.e. what is a mortgage or what is interest) because we feel there is already a wealth of great information and training out there on these topics (and we’ll share the ones we like best),. But we assume that by having an interest in the FCA, you know a lot of this already.

Some of the major topics we cover include but are not limited to:

  • How to gain and utilize power partners
  • What technology to use and how to implement them
  • Marketing techniques that work (and what techniques don’t work)
  • Client strategy session formatting
  • Our signature budgeting system
  • Back and front office optimization
  • How to find your ideal clients (and avoid clients that are not a good fit)
  • On-boarding clients from discovery session to graduation
  • And much more!
Do I need a degree in finance to join the Financial Coach Academy? 2018-02-20T03:45:42+00:00

Nope, all you need is a desire to help people with their finances and a passion for personal finance.
