Specialty Toolkit:

 A 90-day Financial Coaching Program that Delivers Results

*This Specialty Toolkit is included in the Financial Coach Academy®. Explore The Academy® here*

Financial Coaching is more than simply budgeting and talking numbers.

Your new client commits to coaching and you are thrilled. A new client! You can’t wait to show them how to use money as a tool to live a better and easier life. The first 90-days of coaching a new client are incredible and they’re also crucial. How you coach your clients early on sets the pace, tone and perspective for their future success.

During the first 90-days, we see the most immediate results because there’s so much we can do to have a positive impact. But the allure of fast and immediate changes can be self-limiting. The goal isn’t for our clients to just manage their money better today, but for their lifetime. We have 90 days to help them transform into a person who:
 

  • has learned the skill of managing their money well,
  • is organized and eagerly plans ahead for upcoming expenses,
  • has a consistent and steady way of managing their money that works for them,
  • trusts themselves to set goals, believes in their goals and knows how to create a plan for their money to make those goals happen,
  • looks to their future and sees themselves continuing to do good things with their money,
  • saves with intention and is prepared for upcoming whammies and
  • has a strong purpose for the role money plays in their life.

The first 90-days are so much more than “do this and then do that.” You are showing them changes and improvements they can make today, while simultaneously planting seeds for the future. In this Specialty Toolkit, you’ll get access to a proven program structure that gets your clients the kind of results that increase client retention, creating an immediate return-on-investment (ROI).

With this 90-day financial coaching program you will confidently lead your clients through a program that gets results and creates raving fans for life.

A 90-day Financial Coaching Program that Delivers Results

Coaching Begins Before the First Session

Demonstrating Your Expertise and Coaching With Confidence

From Here to There – Painting a Clear Picture of the Client’s Financial Journey

Your Financial Crystal Ball – Introducing the Plan Ahead Method™

A 90-day Financial Coaching Program that Delivers Results
You will see an example of what a 90-day coaching program might look like as you work with your client. The specific topics are laid out in a week-by-week, session-by-session format for you to follow. The main objectives of each session are provided in this simple to read and reference lesson.

This lesson is 4 minutes and contains 1 handout.

Key Roles
Coaching Begins Before the First Session
Coaching doesn’t just happen during the coaching session but with every touchpoint in between. Your prepwork for the client prior to their first coaching session is where it all begins. In this lesson, you will better understand the power of your prepwork and its important role in your 90-day program. You will see the best types of subjective (mental, emotional, logistical) and objective (financial) questions to ask. You’ll also see how to package them together for a professional presentation to the client, making it easier for them to complete. Finally, you’ll learn how to use the prepwork to help you mentally prepare, identify priorities, and ultimately go into each clients first coaching session feeling confident and ready.

This lesson is 28 minutes and contains 3 handouts.

Key Roles
Demonstrating Your Expertise and Coaching With Confidence
Preparing for your coaching sessions in a consistent and client-centric way is one of the most effective ways to get your clients results. By having a clear process, you can go into any coaching session feeling confident you know how to best help your client. In this lesson, you will learn how to pay attention not just to the words the client uses, but the 1) repetition 2) longevity and 3) emotions behind their words. Our Coach Confidence Prep process ensures you’re delivering a consistent standard of coaching each time you prepare for a new client.

This lesson is 41 minutes and contains 1 handout.

Key Roles
From Here to There – Painting a Clear Picture of the Client’s Financial Journey
This might be one of the most important lessons throughout all of our Specialty Toolkits and The Academy®. I’m willing to bet that when you look at someone’s budget or numbers, a picture begins to form in your mind. You can see “the cobweb” (how it’s all connected), but more importantly, you can see how to unravel it. This is your superpower as a coach. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to embrace this gift and how to tie it to your coaching program and the journey the client is taking with you.

This lesson is 101 minutes and contains 1 handout.

Key Roles
Your Financial Crystal Ball – Introducing the Plan Ahead Method™

This budgeting method takes into account life’s fluctuations, the timing of real life expenses and spending and helps clients to see their money much more clearly. It’s also entirely customizable to the client and their situation. The best part? Clients LOVE it, so they’re excited to budget!

This lesson is 61 minutes and contains 1 handout.

Key Roles
Creating a System to Control the Chaos (Saving With Intention)
The things you enjoy spending money on are most likely not the same things your clients enjoy spending money on. And that’s OK. Your job is to help a client identify what is most important to them, then align as much of their money toward those things as possible. But what are those “things” and how do you help a client identify them? In this values-based exercise, every spending decision can easily be put through a filter that is unique to the client and based on what will bring them the most fulfillment.

This lesson is 41 minutes and contains 2 handouts.

Key Roles
Uncovering the Client’s Powerful Financial Purpose
Tackling your financial life is a worthy endeavor in and of itself, but without a clear focus and purpose as to why you are putting in all the hard work, it can be easy to fall off track. This is why we want to help our clients gain clarity around their financial purpose. Knowing what truly drives them to be committed to their financial life will help them be successful for the long run.

This lesson is 18 minutes and contains 1 handout.

Key Roles
Cultivating Financial Excitement and Momentum
Goal setting is not an easy exercise for most people. After years of feeling stressed and frustrated with money, setting financial goals can sometimes feel like a pointless endeavor. In this lesson, you will learn what happens in our minds when we set goals so you can help your clients to better understand the power of this practice. You’ll also see a variety of ways people set goals and instead of simply “having a client pick a goal”, you’ll help them gain the awareness and skills that will last them a lifetime. You’ll never look at goal setting the same again!

This lesson is 80 minutes and contains 5 handouts.
