Kelsa and Michael Dickey are the co-founders and faces of Fiscal Fitness Phoenix, a financial coaching business helping individuals, couples, and solopreneurs take the stress out of managing money. They have built their business from a side hustle to a six-figure business and are ready to show you how to do the same.
After 7 years as a financial advisor and corporate accountant, I realized that I didn’t want to sell investments and insurance or deal with corporate red tape. I wanted to go after my real passion – helping people with their day-to-day finances, something I truly loved. So in 2010, I quit my corporate job that was draining my life force and affecting my marriage so I could start my own business as a financial coach.
At the time, there were no people doing what I wanted to do (and there are still very few), so I had to start from scratch. I worked out of my den helping friends and my family and created most of my own systems and processes. These same systems and processes have helped launch me as a nationally recognized financial coach are what I cannot wait to teach you.
I am the self-proclaimed “spender” in my and Kelsa’s marriage but have experienced firsthand the profound impact budgeting, goal-setting, and financial organization can have on people’s lives. After practicing for 15 years as a Certified Athletic Trainer, I began to immerse myself in financial knowledge – both technical expertise and behavioral insights. I lead Fiscal Fitness Phoenix’s corporate division – teaching employees “how to do all this money stuff.” My passion is showing employers just how easy and beneficial it can be for them to truly support their employees’ financial education and empowerment.
I also have implemented social media, marketing, and web management systems from the ground up and also co-hosts and produces “The Saver and the Spender” Podcast.
