A Financial Coach’s Summer Reading List, Updated for 2021

By |2021-06-15T15:32:11+00:00June 14th, 2021|

Our Favorite Financial Coaching Books It's that time of year!  Summer is here, and it's time to start getting your summer beach reads ready to go.  There is nothing better than sitting poolside in the warm sun and diving into a good book. While devouring a good Nora Roberts or James Patterson novel is a great way to spend the afternoon, we at Financial Coach Academy like to use the summer downtime to be students of our craft as well. We like to mix in some business and leadership motivation alongside the latest teen vampire series. Consider this your official [...]

Should I Put My Prices On My Website: Two Things To Consider

By |2021-07-08T16:26:21+00:00June 14th, 2021|

What to Ask Yourself When Listing Prices On Your Website By Kelsa Dickey When financial coaches ask me a question about should I or should I not do X for my financial coaching business, my answer is usually it depends. That response goes for the question of whether or not to put your prices on your website. It can be a good idea or a bad idea, and your yes or no response depends on where you are in your business and what’s best for your business growth. There are two main schools of thought when it comes to putting [...]

Financial Coaching a Client Going Through Trauma

By |2021-05-25T22:00:45+00:00May 25th, 2021|

How to Be There for Your Financial Coaching Clients (and Yourself) When Life Has Thrown Them a Curveball BY: JILL EMANUEL Today I want to talk to you all about supporting a financial coaching client during a crisis or trauma. Coaching isn't always about the celebrations or exciting financial goals. Don’t get me wrong. Those things are fun, and when those moments happen we celebrate them in a big way with our clients. But coaching deals with a range of emotions - the highs and the lows.  One of the benefits of hiring a financial coach for many clients is [...]

Making the Leap to Full-Time Financial Coach

By |2021-05-25T22:03:20+00:00May 12th, 2021|

How Much Do I Need to Make to Go From Part-Time to Full-Time Financial Coach? I was recently asked this question by a member of our Financial Coaches Unite group. A part-time financial coach who is currently helping friends and family members asked:  At some point down the road I’d love to make it a full time gig, but I’m wondering what I should expect to make per year in terms of revenue? I know every area of the country is different, but I’m trying to get a ballpark idea for planning purposes. As someone who started her coaching business [...]

By |2021-03-26T21:28:33+00:00March 26th, 2021|

Some people are givers, some are takers. And as you coach, you'll come across both extremes of people. Today, though I want to talk about the giver. Specifically the type of people who give and give and give. I call these people my caretaker clients.  Who is a Caretaker? A caretaker is someone who uses their time, money, and energy to assist their immediate family members, friends, or possibly even colleagues. They give a lot and cannot stop themselves from giving. It is their nature. But caretakers oftentimes do so at a sacrifice to themselves financially. Like most [...]

Setting Boundaries with Your Clients Even if You’re Only Seeing Beta-Clients

By |2021-03-04T21:33:42+00:00March 4th, 2021|

How to Set Boundaries with Your Financial Coaching Clients Here’s the scenario. A new coach is building her financial coaching business and trying to take on beta clients. She has eight people express interest in her coaching, and five schedule a discovery call. After the call, four express interest in financial coaching and being beta clients for a full coaching session. One goes MIA and won’t return calls or emails to book the session. Two book a session but then start to ask about pushing it back immediately after they are scheduled. The fourth one wants to book but not [...]

It's a New Year, so for us, that means it's time for another 21-Day Challenge. 2020 was a dumpster fire of a year. It’s something most everyone can agree on.

A New and Improved Academy is Coming in 2021

By |2021-02-01T17:04:10+00:00December 8th, 2020|

We launched our signature course, the Financial Coach Academy, in 2015 because there was a problem with financial coach training. The programs we took were either too general or too rigid, promising that the only way to succeed as a financial coach was by following an exact blueprint laid out by the instructors. That didn’t work for us.  We had found a lot of things that did work for us though over nearly a decade of running our financial coaching business. We created systems, processes, and general how-tos that made for a framework where anyone could build a successful coaching [...]
