With this program we want to show you how to design your Financial Coaching business on your own terms

The Academy is right for you if:

  • You are overwhelmed trying to start a financial coaching career and feel stuck by information paralysis, spinning your wheels and trying to piece together a process.

  • You are caught up in the logistics of coaching a client - when do you have them sign the contract, how do they schedule with you, what do you say during a session, etc and it's stopping you from starting to help people.

  • You find yourself struggling with "imposter syndrome" and want help building confidence while learning how to stand out among other financial coaches and advisors in a way that positions you as an expert in the industry

  • You want to attract new clients who are excited to coach or invest with you. And you want to serve these clients well by helping them to get results.

  • You are a financial advisor, business coach or corporate number-cruncher who is in a messy cycle of undervaluing yourself, your time and are stuck in hobby mode.

  • You are craving a step-by-step system (the kind they definitely don't teach in most schools or certificate classes) without having to invest tens of thousands of dollars.

  • You don't want to figure out through trial and error. (Hint: I'll tell you what not to do because I've already tried everything. I know what does and doesn't work.)

Included in the program:

  • 8 online modules and coaching video conferences that teach you how to master power partners, on-boarding, systematize coaching sessions for individuals, couples and small business owners, marketing and much more. All recorded so you can watch anytime. Clear out all the clutter and advice you read and get real, down to the details, experienced coaching from a financial coach who puts it to practice everyday! VALUE: $8,000

  • Access to the online resource library released with each training call. It includes downloads, contracts, worksheets and other material it took me nearly 10 years to perfect, all handed to you on a silver platter. VALUE: $2,000

  • Access to an exclusive mastermind group of other like minded financially, savvy professionals who are on the same journey as you. VALUE: $1,800 AVAILABLE IN THE LIVE COURSE ONLY

About the Instructor

After 7 years as a financial advisor and corporate accountant, I realized that I didn’t want to sell investments and insurance or deal with corporate red tape. I wanted to go after my real passion - helping people with their day to day finances, something I truly loved. So in 2010, I quit my corporate job that was draining my life force and affecting my marriage so I could start my own business as a financial coach.

At the time there were no people doing what I wanted to do (and there are still very few!), so I had to start from scratch. I worked out of my den helping friends and my family and created most of my own systems and processes. 

Over the course of ten years I have optimized and perfected my Financial Coaching business to maximize the impact I have on clients, my work/life balance and income. These same systems and processes have helped launch me as a nationally recognized financial coach.  I want Financial Coach Academy to show you how to create a similar business model that is flexible enough to take on your own personality, style and strengths.
