Coaching Options

Our Coaching program is a comprehensive process that allows you to determine where you are financially, where you want to be, and best of all, recommendations on how to get there. Financial Coaching is the most in depth and personal service that we provide, so the specific issues and objectives are addressed and together we build an action plan that focuses solely on your personal needs.
We offer three types of coaching:
  • Basic Coaching: Achieve control of your current situation as you move through Baby Steps 1-3. How would it feel to be debt free and have an emergency fund in place?
  • Wealth Builder: Gain insight as you navigate through Baby Steps 4-7. How would it feel to have a specific game plan to know you are on track for those short-term and long-term goals, and know you are making the most of your resources?
  • Business Coaching: For the small business owner and operator without employees.  Coaching covers cash flow planning, reducing debt and building cash savings. Make smart decisions to help your business grow!
  • 50- Plus Coaching Session: This is especially for those who are age 50 plus and at the “Stay the Course” or “Building Wealth” place in life. In addition to addressing those issues listed above, this life review is specifically designed to address issues like executing your retirement plan, what your spouse needs to know about the finances, leaving a legacy, etc.
If you are interested in this in-depth service, and you are willing to make the time and monetary commitment, contact us by 614-296-7177.

We have an affordable $175.00 per hour fee.  You decide what topics need to be covered in your coaching sessions and how much coaching you'll need.  You decide how much, how often and what you need to learn and empowered to do to take control of financial life.  You are in control of the process.
If you're ready, call 614-296-7177 to schedule the first session that will get you underway to being debt free and taking control of your financial life.  But the first step is up to you.

If you took a financial snapshot of a typical American family today, it would not be pretty. Many families are in a financial struggle to keep it all together; many are failing:

♦ According to the Wall Street Journal, 70% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck
♦ Over half (55%) say that they always or sometimes worry about their money
♦ In the new millennium, the personal savings rate fell to -2.2% — the lowest in 60 years
♦ In 2005 there were 2,078,415 bankruptcies – many were middle class
♦ The average credit card debt per US card-holding households in 2005 was $9,312
♦ The average household has $84,454 in personal debt;
♦ Over 62% of Americans retire on annual incomes below $10,000
♦ Conflict over money is still the leading cause of divorce today

This workshop will help folks move towards achieving financial peace now. Chris will discuss in a kind, compassionate and with wit and humor where American families are financially and how money works. In addition, he will outline four steps people can take now to begin their journey towards freedom from financial burdens. Important areas like savings, cash flow planning and debt reduction will be covered. A question and answer period will follow.

Chris says, “People walk away from my speaking engagements motivated to make the right financial decisions. They leave with clarity of purpose, encouragement and wisdom to move in the right direction.”
