How can I afford to pay you when I’m struggling with my bills?

 

I don’t live anywhere near Sault Ste. Marie, can I still work with you?

I understand how hard it is to see past the problems that you are currently struggling with and see the value of investing in a coach. It’s my job to help you find a way to cover the cost of my fee, while also finding ways to pay down your debt, increase your savings and put your money toward the things that are most important. Not only that, my goal is to teach you how to continue doing so long after we’re done working together, so that this short term investment will continue to pay off for the rest of your life.


Absolutely! All of our sessions will be held virtually through the program Zoom, which allows us to see and hear each other, and also allows me to share my screen, so that we’re on the same page no matter what we’re working on. All you’ll need is a webcam and an internet connection.


What can I expect?

A financial coach is super similar to a fitness trainer. I am here to help craft a personalized plan based on my expertise that will give you a leg up on trying to figure everything out on your own. In addition to helping you craft your budget, I’m here to keep you on track and give you that extra little push that really helps you get results.

The best way to see if coaching is right for you is to sign up for a Blueprint Session. It’s a 2 hour standalone session where we establish a basic plan and give you all the tools you need to craft your budget. You have no obligation to continue coaching after this session unless you feel that it would be valuable to you to continue working together toward goals.

If you do choose to continue on to a program I’m there with you every step of the way, helping you implement the plan we put into place. There are always hurdles to overcome and they’re much easier when you have someone there to help you over them. The programs aren’t generic run-of-the-mill financial info you can get from any blog, though. It’s super personalized to your situation, so we work on the things you need and don’t waste time on things that don’t apply.

What’s the difference between Financial Coaching and Financial Advising?

This can be for a variety of reasons such as:

  • Money is something that causes you to worry or is a big stressor in your life

  • You are doing “fine” financially but want to be doing great!

  • You recently experienced a life change - marriage, divorce, graduation, job change, birth of a child

  • You know what you should do but need some accountability

  • You want to know confidently that you’re doing the best things you can with your money

  • You have a goal you’re not sure how to tackle - debt payoff, education, a new house, a big vacation

  • You’re not sure how the choices you’re making today are impacting your future goals

  • You and a significant other are not on the same page

  • You “make good money” and yet still don’t know where your money goes or feel confident you’re managing it well

  • You fee in control but you would like an objective opinion or perspective


A financial advisor provides a line of products such as insurance, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc. that are designed to help manage your money. At Abundance Financial Coaching, we do not sell any financial products.

Our services are fee-based only so that we can focus on doing what is absolutely best for our clients. We do not accept payments from any third parties so that our focus does not waver.

Once we have built the foundation of good money habits, it will typically lead to the need for financial advising services down the road, so that you can have proper investments and insurance to protect the wealth that you build.
