I was super intimidated and overwhelmed when it came to investing. I had a huge fear of losing everything and felt silly because I thought I should know more and better...I've carried a lot of shame around money over the years because money is emotional! Michelle helps you with the practical and the emotional! And she makes it fun! - Jenn B.

Make a Plan
Now that we’ve looked backwards, we can go forwards and make a plan. In these sessions, I will guide you through my Financially Fierce Workbook, we will review your past expenses together and discuss refinements, determine your future savings goals and how they fit into your current spending habits. You’re going to have to get really honest here with what you really want – spending money mindlessly or intentionally? I’ll share my personal tips that have kept me on budget for years!
Work the Plan
Now that you’ve created a plan that you’re happy with, we’ve got to work the plan! In this module, I will introduce the Financially Fierce Cash Flow tracker, which will incorporate your new spending and saving targets and KEEP you on track! I’ve been using this tool for 10 years, and it identifies additional opportunities to put more money away AND plan for sporadic expenditures that arise. No surprises anymore!
Make your Money Work for You
In this module, I’m going to guide you through the investing landscape, and review your current portfolio and investing strategy. If you’re new to investing, we will create a structure to get your money working for you right away! I will share with you a simple and cost-effective method of investing that will save you at least a thousand dollars in the first year, and will keep paying returns year over year. You will leave this session confident and more knowledgeable that your money is working and growing for you, without becoming a stock market expert! I will introduce my monthly Net Worth tracker to incent you to track and watch your net worth grow every month!
Am I On Track for Financial Freedom?
Last, but not least, in this session we will build your retirement plan! We will take your current situation with all your assets and liabilities and input it into my financial planning software that will allow you to see if you are on the right track for retirement. It will calculate if your current savings plans that we’ve just finalized, will adequately cover you at retirement, based on the age you intend to stop working. We can play around with different scenarios so you can see what your options are – retiring early, changing jobs, selling/buying additional real estate. This final step will give you PEACE of MIND that you are on the right track!
Let me tell you a little secret. The most important factors to financial freedom are consistency and TIME. The sooner you make this commitment to yourself, the SOONER your money will literally start working for itself, and the sooner money will not be a hinderance, rather a supporting factor to living the life you want to live!
ABOUT YOUR WEALTH COACH...
Hi! I’m Michelle, thank you for stopping by, I’m thrilled you’re here! Professionally speaking, I am a Canadian Certified Professional Accountant and JRNI certified coach with over 20 years of corporate finance experience.
I am obsessed with personal financial wellness and acumen, and while I’ve been formally coaching for about a year, I’ve been doing it informally with friends and family for ages. I believe that money does not make you happy, but it can set you free. By that I mean, it can certainly be an enabler in moving towards a purposeful and happy life, and I want others to feel the confidence in their money story that I do. You can, it’s in you.
Some of the most transformative work I’ve done to date is the work I’ve done with my coach. Yup – coaches have coaches too! She created a space for me to find my self worth, to hear my intuition, to trust how things are unfolding, and to flow and not force. Oh, and she cheered me on the whole way while I’ve walked this path from corporate finance professional to wealth and self worth coach! I have so much gratitude for the opportunity to work with her, and I want to be able to facilitate these immense changes I’ve witnessed in myself, for other people.
Imagine how good it will feel to be financially fierce! Join me.
Michelle is very friendly, personable, and approachable. You get the sense she authentically cares about you and wants to help you find resolution...She demonstrates a high level of professionalism, confidence, emotional maturity and strong interpersonal communication skills.
Michelle was such a good sounding board for me! She asked relevant questions leading to better understanding/clarity for both of us. Michelle is so warm and friendly, I immediately felt at ease with her.
