Think you can’t afford a personal finance coach? The truth is you can’t afford not to work with one, and here’s why.
If you’re like many people, you might think a personal finance coach is the same as a financial advisor, but there’s a big difference. A financial advisor helps build your wealth through long-term financial planning. A personal finance coach guides you through personal finance basics and motivates you to develop lifelong money habits that help you reach financial independence and stability.
Stop Winging It!
One of the greatest satisfactions I get as a personal finance coach is when a client realizes making daily money management a priority frees her from having to live paycheck to paycheck. The steps involved in gaining financial confidence and independence are simple enough:
- Identify Your Money Goals
- Develop a Plan to Get There
- Execute that Plan
But if it’s so easy, why do so many women struggle to do it? The answer is motivation! Because even the best personal finance coach can’t make you save your hard-earned dollars. But what we can do is help you figure out how to perform at your best. My passion as a coach is in finding ways to motivate you to spend less, save more and do smarter things with your money.
Get Money Fit
Think of financial coaching as a workout for your wallet. Using different tools and exercises, you learn to push through the pain and are rewarded with a healthier financial state. When working with my clients, I use all my hard-earned knowledge and wisdom to motivate them to make seemingly hard personal choices designed to build a strong financial core.
Because each person is different, a good personal finance coach sits down with you to:
- Figure out where you’re now at financially
- Teach you how to manage your money (you probably never learned, start there!)
- Determine your financial goals
- Identify the changes you need to make in your money habits
As with physical fitness, lots of people have days where they just feel like giving up on improving their financial standing. One of the greatest advantages of working with a finance coach rather than doing it on your own is that a coach helps keep you from reverting to old habits. She’s there to remind you you’ve made some great strides in improving your financial health while helping you find the joy that comes from achieving financial success.
