One on One Personal CoachingThe Couples Conversation
The ProblemOne of the biggest reasons cited for marital instability is a lack of communication. The inability to have an honest money conversation around money creates a relationship that is foundationally compromised.
Couples are far more than the sum of both parts.
All money decisions are emotional and with couples this is especially hard because each side of a partnership is going to bring their own money stories into that partnership, and the partnership itself is going to have its own money story.
The inability to have an honest money conversation where you can actually focus on the person, your spouse, or your partner, is a huge source of strife in relationships. That is to say, if you can't have that foundational conversation with your partner, chances are good that shame or other issues will become an unspoken tension that carries through the rest of the relationship, and that then is going to drive a sense of unsafety within that relationship.
Relationships, fundamentally, start off with physiological needs. Can you break bread together? Can you be intimate together? Can you create shelter together? Do you feel safe with this person?
How This Works
We facilitate these vital conversations for couples and create a structure for them. We work with each individual and we the couple as a unit to help remove underlying behavioral causes that create tension, distrust, and fear.
These foundational issues left unexamined create more bad behaviors and the cycle continues. Let's break that cycle!
Clarity of VisionThe vast majority of couples never have a serious discussion around money, nevermind the emotional life they carry into the relationship with money. In fact, most couples never discuss what they are building together. No wonder the #1 reason for divorce involves financial difficulties. Thankfully, this is a skill that can be learned and brought into your relationship. Financial coaching starts with getting clarity on the sides for every partnership: you, them, and the partnership itself. We will explore what serves each of you, and what each of you truly wish to build together in this life
Financial EducationThe realm of finance is often marked on a person's knowledge map with a sign declaring "here be dragons". This makes sense. So much of what is discussed around finance is vague legalese and opaque terms that are beyond the education of the vast majority of everyday people. With couples, there is often a mismatch in knowledge that drives many other issues in the partnership. When you sign up for coaching, you will receive a foundation in personal finance taught in simple accessible terms.
Emotional GuidanceMoney is emotional and it is the emotional landscape of money that prevents the personal growth we crave. With couples, it is even more complex as the relationship is part of the discussion. I understand this on a deep embodied level. My own journey involved a lot of learning and curiosity for myself and my wife. It was not easy, just worth it. Coaching provides a space free of judgement to explore and understand each other and your relationship around money and rewrite your stories from scarcity and fear to abundance and joy.
Systematic ApproachIn the end, the system always wins. Therefore, we will teach you a systemic approach to managing your financial life that will create an inevitability of success. Just because it is systematic doesn't mean it is rigid. We will adjust this approach to fit your needs.
Proven Track RecordMy first coaching client was myself. Starting from a place buried deep in debt, unsure of how to get out of it, I coached myself along the way. Mistakes were made, setbacks were suffered, and through it all I was able to find a way forward. I took that methodology and applied to my very first clients who were able to increase income and get out of debt within two years. Fast forward to present, over a hundred clients have gone through the program and found their own paths forward.
