Kelsa talks with Kacy Smith about her journey from $68k in debt to being a full time financial coach! Most financial coaches follow a similar journey. They start with transforming their own personal finances and realize that they would love to help others feel the same freedom they felt by paying off debt, getting on a budget and having savings in place. Part time to full time challenges The first challenge for most people is the transition to making it a legitimate part time business while maintaining their regular 9-5 job and family life. The biggest challenge is usually that [...]

Tough Client Conversations: When Your Coaching Style Isn’t Working

Here’s the scenario: You get an email from your client. It’s not a good email. In it, they say they’re not sure if your coaching style is working for them. They still want to have a conversation, so the door is not closed, but it’s not as open as you may have thought. What do you do? Beg them to stay? Call it quits? Close up shop and do something else with your life entirely? (Definitely, no to that last one. You got this.) First, let me say this: This kind of email isn’t uncommon. If you've been in business [...]

How Many Financial Coaching Clients is Too Many? Here Are Three Considerations

It's a hard balance to figure out: How many financial coaching clients can you take on before you feel overworked and spread too thin? There's no magic number that works for everyone. At the height of my coaching, I was doing 40+ hours of just coaching sessions in a week (so 40 1-hour sessions probably), but I do not recommend that. I was pretty burnt out, and my business at that time was not scaled properly. Chalk it up to growing pains. But looking back now, I can say there are ways to help you figure out how many clients [...]

From One Experienced Financial Coach to Another: You Got Skills

It's not often this girl gets surprised during a client meeting, so I have to share something that happened last week. I've worked with this client (I'll call her Jenny) for probably 7 or 8 years. It’s been a long time. Jenny is amazing - she’s driven, coachable, honest, self-aware, giving, caring, you name it. Jenny is the best.  We have met every two weeks, if not more, for the better part of the last decade, so as you can imagine, I know Jenny pretty well and she knows me. Our journey together has been gratifying for both of us. [...]

Tough Client Conversations: When Your Client is Ghosting You

Your client paid for their sessions, up front and in full. YAY! That’s great. But now, all you hear are crickets. You’ve tried reaching out several times to move them forward in your coaching process, but they are unreachable. You are being ghosted. Or maybe every time they respond, it is only to reschedule for some date a few months away. That’s not so great.  If this description fits one of your clients, here are a few things to keep in mind and ways to move the process forward. Lead with Compassion and Concern in Your Outreach You never know [...]
