"Before my financial coaching with Anita, I totally subscribed to the false narrative that I just wasn’t a ‘numbers person.’

She completely turned that upside down and showed me ways to keep track of my finances that not only made sense but felt really rewarding.

I saved $750 in one single month and with each passing week, that amount grows, now that I understand where all of my money is going. (And staying!) My budget is completely demystified and it’s genuinely life-changing.

It feels more important than ever to understand your money as things shift in the world around us. I feel so much relief and I want everyone to learn from Anita the way I have."

Your financial reality is REAL whether you look at it or not.

Not facing this part of your life does not make it go away. Not gaining clarity about where your money is and what it's doing leads to reckless spending, more debt, and the very common paycheck-to-paycheck cycle.

You CAN learn to manage your money.

You CAN feel peace around money.

and...

YOUR STORY up to this point DOES NOT have to be your reality.

"In a very short time, I started noticing a change in behavior."

"I am married and my wife works, with two teenagers. We have always had a healthy salary, but always seemed to have money challenges.

We never tracked spending or planned for purchases. Would go through cycles of taking dividends from personal corp to cover shortfalls, and unplanned spends, then get behind on the taxes owing for those spends. Typical bad habits; pay off too much of a credit card or impulse buy, then not have enough for incidentals, take another dividend to cover...

After working with Anita for a few months, I now have a comfort level and understanding of budgeting concepts and how to apply them to YNAB. I have a much clearer picture of our spending (actuals) vs just the big or obvious items. In a very short time, I started noticing a change in behavior; I would question eating out, delay purchases that were not budgeted for, and did a lot more saving and debt paydown.

There is no way I could have done this on my own. Anita has been an invaluable resource, with exceptional knowledge and patience. She has a very positive attitude and is a true partner/coach, who I continue to work with to keep me honest and on track. Along the way we have encountered some challenges that would have for sure stalled me if I was on my own. I would also say that her flexibility and quick responses have been a huge help to address questions/best practices.

I would give Anita a 10/10 and would absolutely recommend her as a partner in your budgeting/personal finance journey."

As an Abundance Coach, I know how important mindset is,

yet there are also the practical elements of how to make money work for you, no matter how little or how much you make.

Whether you make $20,000 or $200,000 a year if you are using your bank balance to make on-the-spot decisions or swiping that card just hoping for the best...

you're not going to be able to create wealth.


Think about the amount of stress that comes from not having clarity about if you really have enough.

If you would like peace of mind that you can cover the bills, have some fun along the way, and create a savings plan for what's important to you...

YOU NEED A BUDGET!

This B-word will change your life!

What You'll Get From Our Work Together...

"It wasn't a magical number I needed, it was a great teacher and a great tool."

"As a 41-year-old woman, it is embarrassing to admit I have no clue what I'm doing with my money. I make a very good living, well above the average income, yet I've been living paycheck to paycheck for as long as I can remember.

I've always put my head in the sand and pretended everything is fine and "one day" I'll be good with money.

It was always, "When I make $75,000 I'll be fine and won't be living paycheck to paycheck." Slowly that magical number kept creeping up and I discovered it doesn't matter how much you make, more money doesn't mean all your problems will disappear, in fact, they may grow.

I've "tried" a few different types of budgeting but never really stuck with one because they were all manual processes and still never helped me understand how money works. It was only when I started working with Anita did she simplify what I thought was a complicated thing. She explained to me how money works and how to gain control of it.

I'm no longer living with the crippling anxiety of checking my bank account or credit card statement. I know where my money is going and where I need to make changes in my habits. She's illuminated something that's been a deep, dark part of my life and it turns out... it's not so scary.

I'm working on removing shame and other negative emotions from my money management and inserting pride and confidence.

Anita and YNAB have truly changed my life and it wasn't a magical number I needed, it was a great teacher and a great tool."

"If I saw something I liked I just bought it without thinking. Every dollar I earned was spent thoughtlessly, but not anymore!"

“YNAB is an amazing tool for tracking and planning your spending which are both crucial in wealth creation, but there's a bit of a learning curve and THAT is where Anita comes in!

Spreadsheets, for me, can be overwhelming but after going through the steps with Anita it all became second nature and surprisingly fun! Daily tracking is the fastest way to get control of your finances!

My personal issue was overspending. If I saw something I liked I just bought it without thinking. Every dollar I earned was spent thoughtlessly, but not anymore! Now I take a pause, check my app and see if it's worth it ❤ Do I want this new purse or do I want to build up my vacation fund faster? THIS. IS. A. GAME-CHANGER!

Do it!"

"I never dreamed this was possible for me."

“For the first time I actually understand my money and finances, literally all thanks to Anita and YNAB.

I have ADHD and am a compulsive spender. My money was always a mess and I never knew where it had gone. I was always afraid to look at my bank accounts and would avoid them until it was too late.

I had tried to use YNAB in the past and failed, and honestly I would have again if not for Anita's patient guidance. It wasn’t easy, but after a few months I FINALLY get it! My life has been completely changed with her help and I am now on my way to a healthy savings and no longer avoid my bank accounts.

I never dreamed this was possible for me."

FAQs

What is the time commitment?

This depends on where you're starting from. Most clients opt for the 7-hour package, which can be used for 90 or 60-minute sessions, depending on progress. We generally start with one or two 90-minute sessions followed by 60-minute sessions once the basics are covered. We generally complete the 7 hours within 8 weeks. I also offer a 3-hour or 1-hour package which can be used as needed for a tune-up.

Where do we meet?

We'll meet via Zoom video call and utilize screen sharing through the app. Don't worry if you don't know how to do this; I'll walk you through it.

What is the cost of working with you?

The most popular option is my 7-hour package priced at $1,069 if paid in full or $389.66/mo for 3 months if you choose the payment option.

The 3-hour package is $497 and single 1-hour sessions are $200.

DIY Option - Free for 35 Days, no payment required. $14.99/mo or $98.99/yr after trial.

I've never tried budgeting before. Is this for me?

Absolutely. I meet you wherever you are in your financial journey, whether you're a budgeting newbie or have tried other methods.

Will this work if I don't get paid on a regular pay cycle?

Yes! The method I teach doesn't care when you get paid. This can be incredibly helpful for freelancers, small-business owners, or gig workers alike. No matter when you get paid, we'll only be working with money you actually have, regardless of when it comes in. We'll create a custom plan that matches your life.

I have my own business. Can I use this method for that too?

Yes! This works for personal and business finances. You can run your business using the exact same principles. I'll also offer some extra tips for managing business finances using this method.

Do you need access to my bank accounts?

No. If you choose to sync your accounts to the program you'll do so on your end and through the latest encryption technology and enhanced login measures. I'll never need or want your login information. There may be times you choose to screen share while logged into a bank account, but this is not necessary and I'll never have access to your accounts.

Will this be painful?

I strive to make budgeting as fun, interesting, and easy as possible for you. Trying something new can sometimes feel uncomfortable, but it doesn't take long to get your footing. People are often surprised how quick and painless the process is with a coach by their side. The rewards far outweigh any initial discomfort.

Are you going to tell me what I can and can't spend money on

No. I don't judge how you spend your money, whether that's getting your nails done, lattes, or sports cars. We'll create a plan that makes sense and affords you the things you love in life. After all, what's the point of a budget if it makes you miserable? The beauty of this method is that you'll begin to see where your spending aligns with your values and where it might not, allowing you to spend even more on what's really important to you.

When will I see results?

If you are attending our sessions and implementing what we discuss, you'll see results right away. The first change you'll notice is a sense of peace knowing that all your money questions can be answered in one easy-to-access place. Next, you'll notice the difference in spending decisions when every dollar is being accounted for.

Once you've been budgeting for a few weeks you may discover you have leftover money to play with. By the end of our work together you'll feel confident in budgeting and may even begin setting aside money for future months. We call this "Ageing your Money".
