Top 10 Reasons You Wouldn’t Hire Me to Be Your Financial Coach

How do you know if you should hire me to be your financial coach? Yes, you should be ready to do the work and make the investment in yourself. But I’m one of thousands of coaches who could potentially help you master your personal finances. So how do you choose?

During a recent discovery call, I chatted with someone who was already working with another financial coach. He felt dissatisfied with the coach’s cumbersome and restrictive plan, so he searched for a better alternative. 

Sometimes it’s even more important to know what you don’t want from a financial coach. So, even if you want to master your money, I understand that I might not be the right financial coach for you.

Here are the top 10 reasons that you wouldn’t hire me to be your Financial Coach:


#10 – You enjoy sleepless nights, tossing and turning, worrying about money.

#9 – You want a financial coach who puts you on the same cookie cutter plan as all his other clients. 

#8 – You enjoy watching tumbleweeds blow through your savings account and love paying out a large percentage of your income every month to credit card companies.

#7 – You think financial dignity and mastering your money are highly overrated.

#6 – You want a financial coach who can’t sympathize with your situation and has never experienced financial distress. 

#5 – You enjoy arguing with your significant other about money.

#4 – You love the sense of shame and anxiety that washes over you when you check your bank account balances.

#3 – You want to work hard until you’re 99 years old because a comfortable retirement in a tropical location doesn’t appeal to you at all.

#2 – You enjoy wasting your hard-earned money on things that really aren’t important to you or your family.

#1 – You’d rather hire a financial coach who cuts up your credit cards, puts you on a restrictive budget, and berates you for your foolish money mistakes.

If you said, “Yes! That’s me!” to any of the 10 reasons above, we’re probably NOT a good fit to work together.

My ideal coaching clients are eager to change and want to say goodbye to money shame and chaos.

As their Financial Lifeguard, I compassionately, yet firmly, guide my clients to a place of lasting financial dignity that aligns with their personal goals.

The #1 reason you DO want to hire me? If you want to wake up every morning feel great about your money!
