Secure Your Future

“This was the most open and safe space I’ve ever had to talk to someone about my financial position - something that’s really hard to find and I found that very therapeutic. 

It was so reassuring to know that I wasn’t alone in trying to figure out how to make my finances work for me, and my family.”

– Vanessa, Design Director, LA

Frequently Asked Questions

Financial Coaching

What is Financial Coaching?


Money is in the category of things we’re expected to know all about, and be experts at, but no one ever really teaches us about it. 😏 Financial coaching is about helping you achieve your financial and life goals, by addressing both the numerical side of personal finance: i.e. how much you should save, what to prioritize, how to budget, and the behavioral side of money i.e. why you might struggle to save, how to build healthy habits around money, or how to overcome the stress around financial decisions.




Who is a Financial or Money Coach?


Name a challenge we face in life, and there's bound to be a coach for it. Struggling with your weight? Get a fitness coach. Want that promotion? Hire a career coach. Want to feel more fulfilled on a daily basis? Get a life coach. Looking to reach financial goals or build wealth or seeking guidance on making sound financial decisions? Say hi to your Financial Coach! Our coaches are certified experts, who are trained in both the behavioral and personal finance side of money. They’ll help you understand your relationship with money, organize your financial life, help you identify, and build your life goals, establish and uphold personalized habits and behaviors around money. All in the spirit of helping you achieve your goals in a non-judgmental space.




How is a Coach Different from a Financial Advisor or Planner?


Financial Advisors, usually are more like money managers - they help you understand your investment options and help you pick the right investment mix for your portfolio. They’ll usually expect you to have a minimum amount of wealth they can manage before they take you on, meet you a couple of times a year, and often have complex fee structures. Unlike a financial advisor, our financial coaches don’t handle your money, and won't provide investment recommendations. Rather, they do the more important and necessary work to help you face the emotional and behavioral challenges you may face, while pursuing your life and financial goals. They’ll be with you as often as you need them to provide insight, knowledge, support, encouragement, accountability, and actionable tools to help you make informed decisions.




Is Financial Coaching Right for Me?


Whether you grew up with generational wealth, or are an immigrant working hard towards your American dream, we believe everyone needs a coach, we can all be a little better with money! Our programs will be extremely helpful to you if:

  • You believe money, or money worries are holding you back from truly following the career path you want
  • You believe you’re working hard, but still feel you don’t have enough money each month
  • You aspire to building your own startup or side business one day, and want to get ready for that leap
  • You’re going through a change in circumstances - whether getting married, or planning on having kids, and want to make sure you’re financially prepared
  • You’re planning on big financial moves - whether it’s buying a house one day, or spending summers in europe and don’t know where to start
  • You’re looking to get organized around your money life, whether that’s getting a handle on your debt, always wanted to learn how to manage your day-to-day finances
A coach is here to be your wing-person, your personal money expert. The same way, a tennis coach might help you master that backhand, our coaches will help you master money.




Why do I need to think about the emotional or behavioral side of money?


It’s easy to forget how much impact money decisions or thinking about money can have on your daily lives. It’s often the main reason why couples fight, it can be a source of stress at work, and source of conflict within families. It can also mean why you might be in a job or relationship you hate, or never take that leap to start your business, believing you don’t have enough. But it’s not about how much you have, or how much you make, it’s about how you react to circumstances and decisions around money - from a point of scarcity and anxiety or one of abundance and confidence. Our programs are designed to help you understand and build a strong foundation with money, that enables you to make sound, rational decisions around money, stick to your goals, and achieve the financial freedom you want.





Coaching Sessions

How are programs structured?


Each program starts with a holistic review of your personal financial picture, as well as a deep dive into understanding your emotional relationship with money - which is often the core cause of why most people struggle with money. This is the first step in any engagement, and is made up of four key components: 1. Money Emotions and Behaviors 2. Finances Today 3. Daily Money 4. Future Self Our sessions are designed to systematically take you from building the fundamentals around a healthy relationship and behaviors with money to getting practical and specific about how to achieve goals, and other milestones in your life.




What do I have to bring to my session?


We’ll send you details in advance of your session, but the most important thing you can bring is an open attitude, and belief in yourself! We know talking about money can be difficult, and uncomfortable - our coaches understand the courage it takes to open up, and offer an unbiased, and non-judgmental safe space for you to explore all facets of your money life. In addition, you'll be asked to complete activities and exercises each week, that will really help you get the most out of the experience.




Will the sessions be confidential?


Completely, and also totally free from judgement or bias. We’d be the first to acknowledge we were bad with money, and have had our struggles throughout, but facing those challenges with help has been transformative. We ask that each participant, understand and agree to our program and session norms, and we will ensure we enforce them through out working with you. All our video calls, and communications are secure, and all your information comply with local privacy regulations.




How do the sessions happen?


Sessions are typically held over video conference, and at a time that works for you, we’d recommend finding a space that you consider safe and with enough privacy. You’re working on a critical part of your life, and you should feel completely free and confident in saying whatever you like, standing up and pacing around if it helps, or even screaming into the void for a second to let it all out.




Why group sessions? How do group sessions work?


In many ways, group programs can be more effective, and powerful, as they tap into shared accountability and mission for participants. Our group programs are specially curated to help a select group to work together towards common goals, and also more economical vs. 1:1 coaching. The program is designed to support you both at a group and individual level, and we make sure to uphold the highest standards of discussion.

Who is this program right for?


This program has been specially designed to help participants build a strong foundational relationship with money, so that they can truly pursue their careers free from stress about money. This program will be extremely helpful to you if:

  • You believe money, or money worries are holding you back from truly following the career path you want
  • You believe you’re working hard, but still feel you don’t have enough money each month
  • You aspire to building your own startup or side business one day, and want to get ready for that leap

This program is not for you:
  • Only want to focus on investing, we’ll cover that in our next program, but we believe this course is an important prerequisite before you jump into investing
  • If you’re looking for investment advice or figure out your taxes - we won’t be talking about investments or taxes, we’ll definitely cover why you might have an emotional reaction to thinking about both those topics, and how not to stress about either.




What’s the time and work investment


The program is 1 hour weekly sessions over 5 weeks, where we’ll cover the key components of resetting your relationship with money. Each session will end with an introduction to a take-home activity that should not take you more than an hour, this exercise will form the basis of the following weeks session, and is necessary pre-work to make sure you’re getting the best out of the experience. The total time commitment estimate for the program therefore is about 10 hours over the course of the 5 weeks.




What happens after I complete the program?


Following the completion of the program you’ll automatically be a member of the community, and have the opportunity to continue working with your peers and the coaches towards the career and financial goals you’ve identified, either as part of a group or 1:1 with a coach. Additionally, you’ll automatically get access to on-going events, and other resources through our Mighty Networks channel where you can continue to tap into the expertise and support you need to achieve your goals.




Can I participate in just one session? Can I try it out?


The program has been designed to help you through a journey of transforming your relationship with money, which requires both commitment and focus, and so we don’t currently offer a trial or dropping in on one session. But if you're interested in learning more, just email us at hello@readysteadymoney.com, and we can help you understand how this might be right for you.




What if I don’t like it? Or I can’t join every session?


We’ll work with you to make sure you’re getting the most out of the program. We’re running multiple sessions each week, which means if you miss one there is an opportunity to catch up, although we don’t encourage that as we’d like you to stay with your money circle throughout the program.




Is there a refund?


We don’t offer a refund for the program, but we’ll allow you to transfer your spot to another participant before the kick off of the program
