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

A New and Improved Academy is Coming in 2021

We launched our signature course, the Financial Coach Academy, in 2015 because there was a problem with financial coach training.

We created systems, processes, and general how-tos that made for a framework where anyone could build a successful coaching [...]

Kelsa coaches a brand new financial coach through crafting their “Why Story”

Many new entrepreneurs have fear about taking the next step in their business and a lot of the time this shows up as imposter syndrome. Wikipedia defines imposter syndrome as: "a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their skills, talents or accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud"." Financial coaching is a relatively new career path and many financial coaches have no formalized education in finances, feel like their credibility will be questioned. But having a degree in finance does not make a financial coach. Most financial coaches have actually learned good financial [...]
