What does your money plan look like?
To be perfectly honest, I’m not a big fan of the words “financial plan” or “financial planner”…because I know you might not fully get what these things mean, or maybe you think the terms don’t apply to you. Think of me as your personal CFO. You work with me because you want to make sure you have all of your i’s dotted and t’s crossed when it comes to your money…and that things stay that way. And it’s never too early to start! I am your financial confidante and bff (best financial friend) and the person you call when any financially puzzling thing happens. Some common issues I tackle:
- Do I need an emergency fund? How much do I need?
- I don’t know how to best deal with my debt.
- Should I save while I’m paying down debt, or just work on the debt?
- I have no idea if I’m preparing for retirement correctly.
- I just got married – how do we combine our finances?
- Do I need life insurance?
- What is the best way to save for college?
- I need help understanding my health insurance.
- I don’t know what to do about my 401k…
- I don’t have an estate plan…because I don’t think I have an “estate.”
- What is the big deal about my credit score?
- I make decent money but it seems to go right back out every month…. I can’t seem to get ahead.
- I am self-employed and need a cash flow strategy!
My roles include motivator, prioritizer, voice of reason, your greatest financial resource…. and, your biggest fan when you reach the goals you set and you experience the fun and joy of money! Don’t hang around – contact me for a quick, free, friendly chat.
Do you have money shame?
I know all too well that sometimes we become frozen like a deer in the headlights when it comes to taking action on tasks that seem overwhelming and scary, especially when it comes to money matters that we know need attention… but we just feel stuck, or maybe dread. I want you to know there is NO JUDGEMENT here. Avoidance is keeping you from your financial potential, and that’s the only shame. If you’re scared, or procrastinating, the great news is that you’ve already taken a big step by being on this website! Take one more important one and let’s talk it out together.
