Frequently Asked Questions


What is Financial Coaching?

Financial coaching is an exploration of your current relationship with money. Coach and client work together to create a plan to move from a current, unsatisfactory relationship toward a transformational goal.


How is my Financial Coaching different from others?

My financial coaching goes beyond traditional financial planners and literacy consulting. Our focus is around opening the conversation about money—specifically:

  • What is your relationship with money?
  • What would you LIKE that relationship to be?
  • How do you talk to your advisor/spouse/kids/parents/friends about money?
  • Does that approach work for you?

Our committed work is to shift your answers to these questions to Comfortable, Openly, and Yes!

This book will do more to increase young people's financial IQ than any formal course, MBA, or business experience―a must read!"
