One thing that I’m learning as a financial coach is that most people don’t just have financial problems. Usually there are so many other things that are tied into poor finances.
Besides having poor finances, I am also finding out that time management is also a huge problem.
It takes time to want to get out of debt. This is not just something that you can do overnight. I have a client that I will be working with for 2 years, but at that point I hope that she is completely debt-free with the exception of her mortgage. The money is definitely there and so is the motivation and the want to get out from underneath all that debt.
So, what about you? Do you have the desire to get out of debt but just don’t feel like you have the time?
I would love to meet with you for just 2 hours of your time and get you on the right plan. During this 2 hour period, I can tell you my story and show you that I was in the same boat that you are in right now – and it’s probably sinking at this point.
I can also show you where you are and tell you where I think you should be within in a certain time frame. The great thing about talking to a financial coach is that we don’t want you to be in debt any longer than you have to be. We want you out of debt as quickly as possible so that you can start living your life the way it’s meant to be lived!
I am also great about coming up with ideas. If the money is just not there, then I can help you follow your dreams to help you find more money. I recently sat down with a client who needed a little extra cash so we discussed what she enjoyed doing. She loved to paint. We brainstormed the idea and she decided to place a few of her paintings on Etsy. She sold 3-4 paintings in the span of 2 weeks. That was fun to watch!
Another great part about sitting down with me is that I’m the third party. I don’t take sides. The only side that I take is my own. I can also see things from the outside in that maybe you are not able to see for yourself. This works really well for couples. I don’t allow money fights but I do like for everything to be laid out on the table. No secrets. I want the three of us to all be on the same team. The winning team!
So, maybe you think you are in a good financial standing but just have a few questions or need a little push in the right direction. Or maybe you would like to get the ball rolling in the right direction financially but are finding that you just need motivation. I would love to hear from you. Please get on the right track financially before 2013 hits. Make this the year of change!
