Let’s co-create a financial plan that gets you started with optimizing your money beyond the fear and anxiety and without the sales pitch.

Here's how most smart and responsible women who finally feel like they have a handle on the basics of their finances go about deciding how to optimize that money...

They ask friends and family for their tips and knowledge, but find that most of the advice is not applicable to their life or still leaves them wondering where the heck to start.

They sign up for the webinars and coaching groups, then feel frustrated when the end result is a sales pitch that doesn’t answer their questions.

They read all of the personal finance books and listen to all of the podcasts, so they feel like they know what they’re supposed to do, but overthink how to apply it to their personal situation.

Sometimes they run the numbers to see where their money's going or if they’re on track for retirement but get stuck when it’s time to start moving money around . . .

 . . . only to realize they're just not sure exactly what that next step should be . . . like should they start a Roth IRA, pay off debt quicker, save for a house or something else? And also, what is that “something else?

So they end up doing nothing because they don't want to make a mistake they'll regret and keeping things the way they are feels safest.

Eventually they get busy with life stuff and even when though they start making more money, they're still dealing with endless debt and feeling out of control with spending. And I don’t blame them! Figuring out how to set spending and savings intentions and then sticking to them is the Holy Grail of personal finance - endless theories on how to do it, but all seemingly leading to more wasted time and money. And knowing that you could be saving more money toward things like buying a home or taking a year off to travel, yet continuing to see no progress toward those things can be soul-crushing. I've been there. I know.

BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY!

Business Colleagues

CAN YOU IMAGINE?

Having complete clarity on how much you can spend each month while also building up savings and paying off debt?

Knowing exactly where you stand so you can stop questioning whether you can GrubHub dinner or if you should make what's in the fridge work for dinner . . . 

Realizing the exciting possibilities in your life that you may have previously thought weren’t what “people like you” could do?

Feeling free of the guilt that keeps you in what feels like an endless cycle of feast or famine with your finances?

Being able to say “YES” with confidence and excitement to getting tickets to the next Taylor Swift tour, no matter how much they cost?

Feeling validated in your knowledge, skills and clarified goals to tune out the noise and stick to your plan . . .

All without fear of losing it all, of having to give up control of your money or feeling paralyzed by all of the options available to you? And without a sales pitch?

Have we met?

Hi! I'm Kelley, and I'm an experienced financial coach on a mission to help smart, responsible women and couples find clarify and confidence with their money. I created The Find Your Financial Bliss™ Coaching Program after making huge changes in my life that I previously only thought “other people” did. I know how it feels to live paycheck to paycheck even though you feel like you've figured out the day-to-day aspects of money. I know the frustration of feeling stuck in analysis paralysis with what comes next - to feel like your life has so much possibility but feel murky on what that actually looks like.

I’ve coached hundreds of people who knew that they were not making the most of their money and their energy, but had no idea where to start or how to make changes. I’ve been there myself.

There was so much holding me back:

  • Perfectionism as I searched for the best path forward but never finding it because I wasn't sure if it was the "right" one

  • Scarcity issues that had me impulse spending while also hoarding cash and not spending it on things I REALLY wanted

  • Identity disconnects that had me blowing my savings and racking up debt

  • Lack of clarity on who my ideal self really was

  • Fear of making the wrong decision and having regrets in the future

  • Guilt over these “first world problems”

Oh, and an entire bag of shoulds, coulds and woulds that kept me  stuck in an outdated version of myself.

Then one day I realized that I needed to make some big changes or life was just going to keep happening to me.

 

I undertook three big initiatives to get myself moving:

1

I examined myself more objectively - I knew what to do, but why wasn’t I doing it? I committed to walking my talk.

2

I reflected on my unconscious money habits and mindsets and what money really means to me, then got to work on changing the stories and habits that no longer served me.

3

I got super clear on my ideal self and how SHE would behave, then I got started on becoming Kelley 2.0.

Within 6 months, I resigned from a job that was no longer in line with my values and eventually moved my family across the country to the home of our dreams – all without compromising our long-term financial health or putting myself at risk of the poverty I felt in my early career days. 

 

I’m not saying you need to quit your job or move to Arizona, but I created Find Your Financial Bliss™ in order to help other smart, responsible women get clear about where they are, get confident about where they want to go and get started on living life on their terms with joy and purpose.

INTRODUCING THE

FIND YOUR FINANCIAL BLISS™

COACHING PROGRAM

An online
Group 
Course with
1x1 Financial Coaching

Clarify where you are, where you really want to go and how to get there without a sales pitch or giving up control of your money.

HERE'S

HOW

IT

BREAKS DOWN...

When you commit to Find Your Financial Bliss™, you'll be joining a group of like-minded women and couples who are looking to shift their relationship with money before working privately with me on the practical aspects of their financial planning. We’ll use my BLISS framework which guides you through the psychological and practical aspects of your personal finances to get you from “Where am I?” to “This is where I’m going.” We’ll personalize the lessons during our 1:1 coaching sessions to make sure you’re super clear on the specifics of your situation.

In this step, we set the groundwork, get to know each other and gather all of the information we’ll need to answer your questions, starting with  evaluating your financial well-being both practically and emotionally. This will help us understand where your starting point is, financially and holistically, making it easier for you to identify where you'd like to go next and how I can best support you to get there.

Week 1: BEGIN

Lay the  groundwork

During week 1, we set the groundwork, get to know each other and make a plan to navigate the course materials and live meetings together. You'll learn how I blend the concepts of financial therapy and financial planning in order to help you transform your entire financial identity, beyond just dollars in the bank.

Week 2: LOOK WITHIN

Go deep on mindset

This is where you begin to confront and overcome the fears that have kept you in anxiety, analysis paralysis and shame with your finances. Before we create that Blissful Spending plan or draft your Blissful Life goals, we need to work through your money psychology to discover & process what's getting in the way. We'll identify the Money Scripts you've internalized and shine a light on which stories need to be edited for who you are today. 

Phase 5:

SETTING THE PATH

Week 3:

IT'S POSSIBLE

Be the change

Now that you have more insight into your mindset and the ways you may be getting in your own way, it’s time to talk about how we go about shifting. The purpose of this step is to understand how we change and then drafting Affirmations for Bliss that will accelerate your transformation.

Week 4: SPECIFICS

Optimizing your money

As this point we shift to one-on-one work and I put my practical financial planner hat on so we can dig into the how's and why's of personal finance. The work we do in from here on out will be personalized to your specific goals and challenges.

Examples of what we can work on:

  • Examining your cash flow to find extra money to put toward savings or paying down debt

  • Creating a plan to accelerate your debt pay-off

  • Getting start with a retirement savings plan

  • Automating your finances to ensure your bills are paid, your savings are growing and you can live your life free of money stress

Together we will co-create an actionable Money Optimization Plan and you'll start taking action to push past shame, guilt and fear to take your money to the next level. 

How to maintain your momentum

Weeks 5 & 6:

SETTLING INTO BLISS

For the last two sessions, we’ll finalize your action plan and prepare to wrap up, unless you opt for a continuation plan. You'll have a clear idea of what to focus on next and I’ll be here to support and encourage you as needed. You will be well on your way to finding your financial bliss!

WHAT MY CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

test1.png

Tina, Senior Officer,

Consulate General of Canada

Working with Kelley empowered me to take the right steps with my personal finances - my time with her has been transformative for my bank account, but more importantly the well-being of my whole self. I had no idea what my problem with money really was or how to change my relationship with it. And then came Kelley.  :) 

My very first session with Kelley was the best therapy session of my life. Working with Kelley was the first time I was actually able to identify my financial priorities, to accept them, and to get to work on making plans to achieve them. The cumulative result of our work has put me in control of my finances. It is hard to quantify, but her presence as a trusted adviser, her listening and truly hearing my underlying concerns, and her work with me step-by-step to find solutions is something I am beyond grateful for.

 

The peace of mind I have now regarding my finances empowers me to be a generous (not to mention functional) sister, daughter, wife, aunt, friend, professional, and community member. I am able to participate in life, face challenges, and move forward with financial confidence and security. I can take that trip and actually ENJOY it knowing I planned for it. I can say the same thing about all of my expenses now - from housing to holiday gifts.
