Why Hire a Financial Coach?
Personal finance is an overlooked part of wellbeing. We don't study personal finance in school. We don't learn about it at mindfulness retreats or in professional development sessions, yet our finances play an outsized role in our lives.
Our decision making, ability to meet our own personal goals, and overall levels of stress and happiness in life are influenced by our financial situation. If you want to choose your own path in life, you need to make conscious and informed decisions about your own finances to enable you to reach your goals.
Whether you're an individual looking to create your own financial freedom, or you want to bring a workshop to a larger audience, you can start by booking a free call now.
Read the latest from Choose Your Own Finance's blog:
Choose Your Own Finance is all about you defining your own path.
Start from a place of accepting yourself. Self-compassion and understanding are of the utmost importance for sustainable change.
You are where you are because you did what you could with what you had at the time. Notice and accept.
Gather and analyze data to make informed decisions about your next steps. If you don't know what's possible, then it's hard to make goals. Likewise, if you don't have any data on your own financial situation, it's difficult to make a realistic timeline.
Your situation is unique. What works for one person at one point will probably not work for another person, or even at another point in the same person's life.
We facilitate you defining and adjusting your own individualized path to financial independence.
I am a former middle school science teacher and current board member of SimplyFI.org. Everything I know about finance I learned the old fashioned way, by making mistakes then learning from them (plus a lot of reading). As a Bogleheads style investor and a FIRE enthusiast, I love sharing what I've learned on my own journey to financial freedom. I am passionate about helping others find their own path to FI so they can design the life they want for themselves.
I run Choose Your Own Finance, give talks and lead workshops on personal finance. I also offer one on one coaching sessions to help individuals enact change in their lives.
