Embracing the Power of Self-Investment as a Financial Coach

Investing in yourself is unequivocally the fastest and easiest path to achieving the results you're after. Many of you have heard my personal journey with financial coaching (and for those who haven't, episode 33 is a must-listen), and we've seen firsthand how our clients benefit from the guidance of a financial coach. Yet, for many entrepreneurs, especially those new to business ownership, believing that their idea or desire to build a business is worthy of investment is a significant hurdle. Rest assured, it is. Today, I want to talk about the coaches we work with after they’ve finished [...]

The Importance of Embracing Your Role As CEO

How To Create and Execute The Vision You Have For Your Financial Coaching Business - And Life I take my job as the CEO of my company very seriously. But it took me a while to fully step into this role because imposter syndrome is a bitch. But the thing is, if you’re running a business of any kind, no matter the size, you too are a CEO.  One of the things that helped me step into my CEO-ness was holding regular CEO Retreats for myself.  I held my first CEO retreat back in May 2021 because [...]

A Step-by-Step Approach For Financial Coaches to Coach Clients on Debt Payoff

Why The Debt Snowball Isn't Always The Best Way To Pay Off Debt When I started financial coaching more than 10 years ago, I had many clients who came to me and their number one goal was to get out of debt. Probably like many of your clients today. They'd tell me their financial info, I'd plug it into a debt snowball calculator, and it would spit out this beautiful, perfect debt payoff plan that I would then present to the client. And sometimes it would work. But you know what, sometimes it didn't. My client wouldn't stick to the [...]

Thoughts About The Value Of Raising Your Prices And When You Know It’s Time

Did you know the price of the Financial Coach Academy used to be $3,197? When we first launched the Academy, our signature financial coach training course, in 2015 it was offered as a live course only. We had a small group of coaches (no more than 20 each round). The Academy lasted 12 weeks. The coaches had online videos to watch, exercises to work through, and Michael and I would host weekly calls throughout the program.  The live-only course was great, but it had its drawbacks. The main one being that we wanted to help more coaches! Twenty seats per [...]

You Don’t Need a Financial Coach Certification

Why Trust Is More Important To Your Clients Than A Credible Financial Coach Certification  I have been a financial coach for more than a decade now. I’ve coached hundreds of clients in that time. And you know how many have asked me what certifications I have? Maybe two? I don’t have any financial coach certifications, and in this post I want to tell you why you don’t need them either, and why building trust is way more important than your certifications as a financial coach. Why You’re Looking For A Certification If you are a coach who’s considered getting a [...]

It’s a Financial Coaching Symposium Flash Sale

This is the week that time forgets. We’re in a haze. The week between Christmas and New Year’s is the land that time forgot. It’s where little is expected of us and even less gets done.  When I worked in corporate America, this was the time to do super important activities like clean out my office, take super long lunch breaks, and organize the folders on my computer.  But as an entrepreneur, I like to use this time to take stock, learn, and prepare for the coming year. And rest. Don’t get me wrong. I will be in my pjs [...]
