Overview: Coaching Process
01
Financial Assessment

The first thing we need to do is learn about your finances. We conduct a complete financial assessment with where you are now, and help you understand how to be more efficient with what you have. This session allows our coaches to determine how we’re going to shape our coaching to cater to your individual needs.

02
Cash Flow Management

We then identify problem areas and help you understand your cash flow. In order for you to lay down the foundation to building wealth, it’s crucial that you understand what you have coming in, and what you have going out. This allows you to create an spending plan so that your money can be allocated properly in order to achieve your financial goals.

03
Investment Analysis or Debt Reduction

Depending on your current situation, we either focus on debt reduction where we set you up on a cash flow plan to reduce your debts faster than you ever imagined, and/or, we analyze your investments. This is where our coaches will evaluate your investment portfolio and provide you with opportunities to put more money in your pocket every year.

04
Roadmap to Financial Freedom

Finally, we wrap up all of the pieces and ensure that you feel comfortable and confident in your plan moving forward. At this point, we will walk you through the process to achieve the financial freedom that you’ve always dreamed of, using the resources and tools from our previous sessions.

05
Accountability & Plan Refinement

Your finances can change quickly. We understand that. This is one of the reasons why we provide our clients with accountability and plan refinement to adjust to these changes. This step is also crucial to ensure that you’re executing on what you’ve learned through our program.

06
Outgoing Financial Report

On the final step, our coaches will take you through a wrap up report where you’ll be able to see how much your finances have changed over the 6 months of coaching. This is where you’ll be able to see the financial impact that your hard work and dedication had on your finances.

Meet Our Coaches

I’ve been collaborating with Enriched Academy since 2017 to develop our Financial Coaching program into the effective, results-driven program it is today. Together with my colleagues at Enriched Academy, we are on a mission to make financial freedom accessible to all Canadians across the country.

We do this by developing a practical understanding of basic financial principles including net worth, managing cash flow, and creating passive income to fund retirement. My coaching strengths include debt reduction, cash flow management, investment analysis, self-directed investing and private lending.

Prior to joining Enriched Academy, I was working in Toronto in the live events industry, and living a comfortable, but far from extravagant lifestyle. After working long hours, and become too wrapped up in the rat-race, I decided to focus my financial goals towards a 6 month trip to South America and Southeast Asia. With a little bit of dedication and hard work, I managed to save 40% of my one year income to fund the trip. I quit my job, got rid of my apartment, and left Toronto to go on an adventure of a lifetime. The Huffington Post even wrote an article about me.

For many people, this kind of adventure leaves them broke or indebted upon their return. I actually kept enough money aside to move back to Toronto and live a comfortable life in a very expensive city. It’s been over four years now and I continue to invest 30% of my income and I’m on track to retire at age 40.

How did I do this? I have to give credit to my parents who taught me to be fiscally responsible from an early age, just like we believe at Enriched Academy! I also practice what I preach and apply everything I teach my clients to my own financial life.

We do this by developing a practical understanding of basic financial principles including net worth, managing cash flow, and creating passive income to fund retirement. My coaching strengths include debt reduction, cash flow management, investment analysis, self-directed investing and private lending.

Throughout my adult life I have always been intrigued by making money and wondering why people use it the way they do. Financial matters can be deeply personal and difficult to discuss. I have helped many clients get through the type of money discussions they needed to have but did not really want to have with anyone else.

My professional career has mainly been in the investment industry, and I am well-versed in helping people invest in mutual funds, ETFs, stocks, bonds and other financial resources. However, my true passion is to educate and empower my clients to manage their own investments. I believe that with the right knowledge and some initial guidance and support, everyone should be able to successfully manage their own finances.

Prior to joining Enriched Academy, I was an avid real estate investor and accumulated five Ontario rental properties in under 10 years. I don’t feel that timing or luck had anything to do with my success, but rather my ability to execute on the knowledge that I had. I am living proof that clear and concise goals lead to financial success, and this idea forms an integral part of the overall financial strategy for my Enriched Academy clients.

In spring of 2021 I moved my young family to Nova Scotia in search of a more relaxed way of life and to find the work-life balance all Canadians should have. Retiring early is not a goal of mine – but I do plan on having the income from my passive investments cover our living expenses before I reach 40.

My parents are the most frugal and hard-working people I know, and from a young age I’ve always said, “I want to make money with my brain and not my body.” I look forward to discussing your beliefs about money and lifestyle and challenging you to achieve the success you want.

Throughout my adult life I have always been intrigued by making money and wondering why people use it the way they do. Financial matters can be deeply personal and difficult to discuss. I have helped many clients get through the type of money discussions they needed to have but did not really want to have with anyone else.

My professional career has mainly been in the investment industry, and I am well-versed in helping people invest in mutual funds, ETFs, stocks, bonds and other financial resources.

I have worked in the financial services industry for over 30 years. I started out as an insurance agent and went on to become a full-service advisor before launching Canada’s Money Coach in 2010. I have helped thousands of clients achieve their financial goals by creating a clear picture of their financial situation, building a realistic budget and saving plan, and implementing a “get out of debt and stay there” strategy.

I am thrilled to be working with Enriched Academy because they are truly committed to ensuring every Canadian understands their finances and how to successfully manage them. Like many of you, I wasn’t taught about money matters or how to manage my finances. I made many mistakes over the years before I finally “got it”, and I know that my experiences are similar to what many Canadians across the country are experiencing. My “hands-on” background and many years of advising clients is the best education possible to help you take control of your financial life.

Whether you are a small business owner with an inconsistent income trying to manage your personal finances, or a long-time company employee nearing retirement, I can help.

It’s never too late to become more financially literate, take control of your money, and make your financial dreams come true.

I have worked in the financial services industry for over 30 years. I started out as an insurance agent and went on to become a full-service advisor before launching Canada’s Money Coach in 2010. I have helped thousands of clients achieve their financial goals by creating a clear picture of their financial situation, building a realistic budget and saving plan, and implementing a “get out of debt and stay there” strategy.

I have always approached personal finances from a practical and optimistic perspective. I believe we can all live the life we truly want if we take the time to examine our financial situation.

Prior to joining Enriched Academy, I spent 12 years managing a law firm in Toronto. During this time, I found myself frequently giving advice to our employees. I decided to combine these two passions and trained to be a financial coach.

I specialize in helping people with cash-flow and debt management issues. I assist in helping them regain control of their finances and plan for a more solid future.

Growing up in a single parent home, I learned what it meant to live frugally. After I became a single parent myself, I had to develop strategies to get out of debt with very limited resources. It was a struggle, but I now take great pleasure in watching my own children use sound financial judgement as they launch into their own adult lives.

I have learned that a sound financial strategy can go a long way in helping us navigate life’s hurdles and stay in control as we track towards our intended goals.

Having gone through many life transitions and navigating the financial realities that come with those changes, I have developed a compassionate, yet pragmatic approach to personal finance. My goal is to empower others to effectively manage their money and secure their financial future.

I have worked in the financial services industry for over 30 years. I started out as an insurance agent and went on to become a full-service advisor before launching Canada’s Money Coach in 2010. I have helped thousands of clients achieve their financial goals by creating a clear picture of their financial situation, building a realistic budget and saving plan, and implementing a “get out of debt and stay there” strategy.

I am thrilled to be working with Enriched Academy because they are truly committed to ensuring every Canadian understands their finances and how to successfully manage them.

I have always approached personal finances from a practical and optimistic perspective. I believe we can all live the life we truly want if we take the time to examine our financial situation.

Prior to joining Enriched Academy, I spent 12 years managing a law firm in Toronto. During this time, I found myself frequently giving advice to our employees. I decided to combine these two passions and trained to be a financial coach.

I specialize in helping people with cash-flow and debt management issues. I assist in helping them regain control of their finances and plan for a more solid future.

Growing up in a single parent home, I learned what it meant to live frugally. After I became a single parent myself, I had to develop strategies to get out of debt with very limited resources. It was a struggle, but I now take great pleasure in watching my own children use sound financial judgement as they launch into their own adult lives.

I have learned that a sound financial strategy can go a long way in helping us navigate life’s hurdles and stay in control as we track towards our intended goals.

Having gone through many life transitions and navigating the financial realities that come with those changes, I have developed a compassionate, yet pragmatic approach to personal finance. My goal is to empower others to effectively manage their money and secure their financial future.

One of if not the best financial decision I made, it paid for its self 10x over at least. Stick to the system, and it works, yes you might slip into old habits but as long as you go back to the system it's works. Contact me anytime, I will share my story.

Need More Information?

You can find your answers here.

Everyone can use a little clarity with their finances. And sometimes a gentle kick in the pants is all we need. A financial coach brings an unbiased and highly knowledgeable perspective to help you understand your current situation, set financial goals, and identify alternatives. A coach will also give you a layer of support and accountability to help you achieve those goals!

Our sessions are held virtually so we can share screens and talk face to face. You do not need to be tech savvy to join coaching, but we suggest being familiar with how to use the internet, Excel documents, Google Drive, and our online tools. We can also help you fill out the worksheets if you require. Just come prepared with your homework.

Yes! If you have a question about your homework or need a second set of eyes/ears on a financial product or idea you have, you can email your coach directly. Please allow your coach up to 48 hours to respond as they work with multiple clients and may not be able to get to you right away.

We don’t sell products or manage your investments, but we can help point you in the right direction. Our ENTIRE focus is on educating you and helping you understand your financial situation. We want to show you where you are today and how to get to where you want to be, and help you plan all the steps you will need to take along the way. After that, we guide you through that process with expert support and accountability.

We do! But we don’t guarantee a certain result because this is a customized program and every client has different goals. We stand behind our material and don’t recommend our coaching services unless you really want to, and are ready to make a change. We’re here to make a difference in your financial future, and our program works if you stick with it and do your homework. If you complete the first two sessions in the first 30 days after your enrollment, and don’t think coaching is for you, then you can apply for a refund.

Of course! None of our clients are the same, and we treat each of our clients differently depending on where they are on their financial journey. We’ve seen it all and will cater our coaching to whatever your goals are. If you’re just starting out with a new job, need to get out of debt, have investments, entering retirement, etc. just let us know what your goals are, and we can help you achieve them.

YES! We welcome your referrals with open arms - financial literacy and financial freedom are something all Canadians should share! If you loved our coaching program, please share your success with your network. You can share THIS LINK on your social media, via email, text, or word of mouth. Your referrals can sign up for a FREE Financial Assessment Call to see if coaching is a good fit for them. And if it is, and if they successfully complete all 6 sessions of coaching, then we’ll send you AND your referral a $125 cash bonus as a Thank You!

Our coaching program is an investment in yourself and your future. Consider it the same as taking a College/University course in personal finance – that’s what our program is. Our program works for those who are ready to make a financial change in their lives, and who are coachable. However, if we feel that coaching is not right for you, we will give you your money back, at the discretion of the coach. We are here to help you and make a difference in the lives of Canadians.... because everyone deserves financial awareness. If you feel like you’re not fully ready for coaching just yet, you should look at the online Wealth Mastery program.

Coaching is not designed just for wealth building. It is tailored to your personal circumstances, and we have helped many coaching clients with debt reduction and elimination. We work with you to come up with a strategy to support you on your financial journey, from paying someone else, to paying yourself first.

No one should ever feel “uncomfortable” with their investments. Whether you are ultra-conservative or super aggressive, our goal is to educate you on the options available and help you evaluate the risk and make an informed decision for yourself. In addition to risk, we will also help you with balancing your overall portfolio and understanding the various costs and fees associated with your investments.

Absolutely! We love connecting with our clients for check-in and accountability sessions to help you continue your wealth building journey. If you are interested in extending your coaching program, you can CHECK OUT THIS LINK or discuss with your coach directly for more information.

Imagine joining a gym for the first time or taking part in a class on a brand-new topic. Sometimes you wish you had an instructor or coach to guide you through building those new muscles or correcting your form; or someone to ask questions to in class when you get stuck on a topic that is just not making sense. Well – enter in our financial coaches. As you work through the program, our financial coaches play the role of expert bootcamp trainers. They tweak your program to help you get the maximum results. Like a coach, they expect you to do the required lifting and exercises and will hold you accountable to your commitments. So, like any change and a good coach, they will help take you to the next level so long as you are willing to do the work required. The coaching program itself includes six, one-on-one sessions with your coach, tickets to our annual live events, partner/spousal inclusion, and lifetime access to our online curriculum.

Great question! And it’s one that we get a lot. We can cover a variety of topics depending on your needs. Coaching can help with budgeting and expense management, saving, debt reduction, investing in stocks, real estate and other passive income strategies, registered accounts (RRSP, TFSA, RIF, RESP etc.), retirement planning, wills, and insurance. Each client is different, and our coaches ensure you get a perfect fit with your situation and needs. Please note that we do not teach advanced investing techniques like day trading or options. We’re all about creating a diversified portfolio that delivers solid returns over the long term.

In the easiest way possible, a financial coach provides clients with education, information, and accountability so that you can make the best possible position to create initial wealth or become the most efficient with the wealth you've already created. Financial coaches tend to focus on fundamental financial needs and usually take a more personal, hands-on approach to working with clients. While a financial coach works with you as a partner, you are ultimately responsible for your success. A financial advisor/planner works to manage and build on wealth that already exists and can work with you on all stages of your financial life. Most people work with them on investments and future planning. With more of a focus on managing your assets and long-term planning, advisors tend to take an analytical approach in their work. Your working relationship with your financial advisor may not include as much communication as with a financial coach, but your advisor should still check in with you throughout the year.

Our coaches have a diverse background experience and qualifications which you can learn more about here.
