Supportive, well-meaning friends and family can be awesome cheerleaders when they have the time to support you.
Clients who come to me say they were happy tor support from friends, confidants, and colleagues. But they are coming to me because they are ready for more.
They want one-to-one, focused, outcome-oriented conversations to get clarity and perspective and next steps. And they want to amp up their confidence that they can take action.
My clients and colleagues say that I am one of the most positive, uplifting and encouraging people they know. I will encourage you to reach your goals with all of the enthusiasm you permit me to use ;-)
I'll help you to explain to the people who may be impacted by your debt-FREE journey why you are doing what you are doing the way you are doing it!
debt-FREEDOM Coaching is not:
- Credit counseling
- Financial crisis counseling
debt-FREEDOM Coaching is:
- Supportive of your goals
- Scientifically structured conversations
- A partnership over a pre-determined period of time
- Resourceful states
- Driven by you & your goals, enhanced by financial wisdom
There's financial wisdom that stands the test of time...and then there's YOUR way of implementing that wisdom in a way that best suits YOU.
Debt-FREEDOM coaching can transform the way you think about, feel about, and actually manage your business, life and finances so you can create the sweet debt-FREE life you want.
Debt-FREEDOM coaching uses time tested financial wisdom, and proven techniques to help you reach your goal. Together we will analyze your income streams, your expenses, your financial management systems, your assets and liabilities. We will then create a plan to help you reach debt-FREEDOM on your time-frame. Then, we will partner together to implement your plan.
And, coaching is 100% confidential. You may choose to tell others about your coaching and journey. I keep our work together confidential.
Debt-FREEDOM is the destination. Clients tell me that the mindsets, skills, habits and perspectives that they develop during coaching are the rewards that make the journey sweeter and sustainable.
Confidence that they have a solid plan.
Belief that they can implement the plan.
Evidence that the plan is realistic.
Proof that they have the skills necessary.
Peace that they will enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
Coaching helps my clients build systems, safety nets and boundaries that help them live life and manage their finances on their own terms.
They love having a safe, confidential, focused space to think through their ideas. Coaching provides a dedicated time and place to brainstorm with a trained financial and solutions-focused coach; to "what if"; and to see beyond the challenges; and then make decisions and commitments.
They create strategies and timelines that fit their lives, their interests, their values, and their visions.
And they do it in a sustainable way that allows them to grow as individuals, as family & community members, and as business owners.
You are already doing awesome things! But awesome shouldn't make you feel burnt-out or alone or confused. Let's see if coaching can get you unstuck.
Having a debt-FREEDOM coach is like having a personal trainer. But instead of physical fitness, this is fiscal fitness that benefits your mind, your peace, your quality of life, your bottom line, your credit score, your networth, and your legacy.
Books, videos, blogs, social media stories, video shorts, etc, give you lots of great (and some not-so-great) ideas and tips and tricks, but integrating them into your reality is easier said than done.
With coaching you get to create financial strategies that suit your day-to-day realities. And because we coach together over a period of time, you get to implement, learn and refine until you create results.
Clients love my gentle, non-judgemental approach that still focuses on the goal and the bottom line.
"Thank you, Alyssa, for our session together. I believe God has beautifully gifted you in the area of financial coaching. It takes a special person and a special wisdom to be able to spend an hour in such a productive and helpful and comfortable manner for your clients." - Debbie
Some prospective clients ask "What's the plan?". If you and I decide that coaching is a good fit, we will build your plan together. You are in the driver's seat. In fact, you determine the focus of each session, keeping your Big Hairy Audacious debt-FREEDOM goal in mind.
I only work with a few coaching clients at a time. This allows me to offer special attention to my clients when reality meets their plan. This allows you to handle things as they come up in real time.
You are unique.
Your life is unique.
Your debt-FREEDOM plan should be unique, too.
So, here's what happens:
1. You and I will start by outlining your expectations and goals.
2. Next, we will work together to create a roadmap to accomplish those goals.
3. Then, I will help you accomplish those goals.
4. We'll do a "What Worked Well" and "Even Better If" assessment of what happens when life meets your plan.
5. We'll create new strategies for new goals that needs to be accomplished to get you to debt-FREEDOM.
When you contract with me, you get personal attention. Virtual "knee-cap-to-knee-cap" 100% deep-listening attention. Coaching clients breath a sigh of relief when they can dedicate time, space and focus to their most pressing questions and challenges about reaching debt-FREEDOM.
My coaching packages are typically 5 months. You get:
* Regularly scheduled phone calls or zooms.
These are weekly or bi-weekly depending on the frequency of support you desire. The sessions help us keep you moving towards your goals and reflecting on your progress and upcoming steps. I use pre-coaching and post-coaching forms to prepare you for your session and help you retain valuable insights.
At the end of each session, you will chose and commit to action steps (some people call it homework). You get to identify action steps, and you get to chose which ones to commit to. From time to time, I may have an exercise that would be valuable and, with your permission, I'll offer it.
These sessions are yours. You are in the driver's seat. You have 100% control over what we focus on in each session. Past clients have focused everything from money organization, bill paying strategies, discretionary spending, analyzing expenses, creating a month-by-month timeline to debt-freedom, balancing quality of life against their plan, integrating other life goals into their debt-FREEDOM plan, reviewing safety nets, creating priorities, a detailed monthly cashflow planning session, creating a sense of motivation to perform certain tasks or sustain them through a season, and so much more.
Past clients have also included their spouses or significant others in sessions.
* Support between sessions:
The scheduled sessions are transformative and powerful. But most of the work and life happens between sessions.
If life meets your plan and you need a sounding board, I encourage you to reach out between sessions. Call, text or email. There's no sense losing valuable time or not exploring all of your options until the next session. Laser-focused sessions are included.
* Follow-up session:
One of my clients' biggest fears is that they will lose focus after coaching ends. That's why I offer one follow-up session at no charge to use within 3 months of your final coaching package session.
* 1 Gift Session for a business colleague, family member or friend:
Chances are good that you'll inspire someone with your debt-FREEDOM journey. You don't have to be debt-FREE to change someone's life. Give them the gift of a free debt-FREEDOM coaching session.
Let's talk R.O.I ... after all, this is about your money & business & life.
Are you ready for something shocking?
According to a recent Lending Tree study, the average monthly debt payments in the U.S. are:
$690 - Auto Loans
$517 - Personal Loans
$272 - Credit Cards
$307 - Student Loans
$275 - Other Debts
That totals $2,061 - a MONTH!
Debt is stealing $24,732 a YEAR leading to limited opportunities, extra business stress, wasted work hours and delayed debt-FREE living.
A 5-Month Coaching package is a one-time investment of $1875
For less than the average household's debt-servicing of one month, you can get 5 months of coaching to become debt-FREE for life. Most of my debt-FREEDOM coaching clients who commit to their goals become debt-FREE in 18-36 months.
Here's a fun question for you...I'm curious: What lasting impacts will you have on your family, business, clients and community when you are debt-FREE?
