Joe R. said: “Since I don’t typically talk about money with friends or colleagues it’s a bit of a gray area. You’re easy to talk with and know what you’re talking about. I wish I’d had you as a coach 10 years ago because you could’ve helped show me a lot of the things that have taken me years to figure out on my own.”
I get it. You feel like you can’t talk to anyone about money. Because it’s really personal and no one really talks about it. All you’re looking for is some guidance that’s neutral and thoughtful to know you’re getting ahead. Sound familiar? If so, I’m happy to talk to you about whatever topic you want. Here are things I’ve helped other people with.
• Set a financial goal and create a plan to achieve it
• Balance debt and bills with saving for the future
• Optimize your finances
• Decide about buying a house
• Start a side business to generate additional income
• Raise your rates
• Get a raise at your job
• Negotiate your salary
How a single session works:
- Pay for a one-hour session by sending $125 via PayPal.
- You pick a day and time from my personal calendar.
- I send a short form so I know what you want to focus on (so we don’t waste time).
- We talk. And you have what you need.
- I follow up because I want to keep in touch and see how it unfolds.
Andrew H. said: “You gave us an immediate boost in motivation to stick to our financial goals, and potentially make them even more ambitious. Hearing everything in one place from someone whose expertise I trust made us more confident in the decisions we have been and will be making. Thanks again.”
Rohit K. said: “I could relate to you right away and didn’t feel like I was talking to a celebrity or rich dude. You are very perceptive and were able to explain everything in simple terms without getting into technicalities. Now I have a strategic direction for investing and achieving my financial goals. What you are able to do is a gift for anyone who is seeking honest and pragmatic financial coaching.”
Christina C. said: “I liked that you focused on the big picture stuff instead of getting into the details. I never really considered the term coaching with finances before, but that’s exactly what you did. There’s a lot of noise in the “money advice” arena but you kept it simple and your perspective was valuable.”
Juan K. said: “Thanks again, Chris. While money was the topic, you addressed the human responses and concerns which put me at ease, and built confidence in my decisions. I’ve heard what you shared before but being able to follow along and ask questions gave me a solid foundation, and now I have direction for doing more with my money.”
Greg H. said: “You are personable and tried to understand where I’m at in life, and what might suit my personal situation. It wasn’t a dry conversation with just stats and info I can find on google. Now, I know I need to analyze the cost/benefit of investing in housing. After talking with you, growing a retirement fund became a new priority.”
Jeremy F. said: “For those that are serious about achieving their financial goals I would definitely recommend your coaching. The biggest reason is you “walk the walk”. You’ve been there, done it, and now live life on your own terms. That is credibility to me. I liked being able to bounce things off someone that truly gets it, and was reassured the steps I’m taking are in the right direction.”
Stephen S. said: “My wife and I are both good with money, but the only problem is we sometimes are unable to move forward because of different opinions (like buying a house vs renting, deciding an amount to put in investments, etc.). We had a lot of ideas, but you had good questions that helped direct the conversation into a series of steps towards our goal and come to a compromise that works well for both of us.”
Chris P. said: “Thank you again for taking the time to speak with me. Your insight and perspective was valuable and would help anyone navigate the workplace and take control of their finances. I enjoyed your coaching and hope to speak to you again in the future.”
David M. said: “I was afraid I wasn’t on the right track to achieve financial independence and speaking with you gave me reassurance that I can reach my goal. You were very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and flexible in answering all my questions. Thank you for your time.”
Daniel A. said: “It was nice to speak with someone who can provide helpful perspective. Now I have a better sense of clarity about my situation and feel I’m on the right track. We covered a lot of ground in one call and it felt like a really productive use of time. I really appreciate your time, thanks again.”
Brian M. said: “Though I had questions, I really didn’t know what to ask. Enter Chris. He swiftly sifted through all my random questions and pin-pointed how I could keep everything where it was but from this point forward invest a little differently. Then I mentioned I was being tortured by my wanting to build a detached garage-apartment at my home but wasn’t sure if it would be financial suicide. Chris was able to give me answers with such focus and alacrity, like it was nothing. He clearly demonstrated his expertise in just a short time and I am confident now about where I am headed financially.”
