You missed out!

You're a smart and successful woman who seems to have it all . . . but something's missing.


When I first met Madison, I asked her how she felt about her work-life balance. She sighed and said, “What balance? I’m so crazy-busy that I can’t even remember the last time that I spent an afternoon just hanging out. Even life feels like work these days.”

We got to the heart of it. Madison told me, “I always thought that once I had this salary and position, I’d be happy. I wouldn’t be like those ‘other people’ who were so driven that they didn’t have time for relationships or fun. But here I am. I’ve pushed my own life, and my happiness, to the back burner so that I can be this big success. Sometimes, I wonder why?


Madison didn't have the flexibility and freedom to spend her days the way she wanted. Her success only led to longer work hours, higher levels of stress, and even more demands on her time. Deep down inside, she bought into the idea that personal sacrifices are simply part of career advancement and wealth.

But Madison isn't alone. Every day, women are inundated with messages of the American dream. If we get a good education and work hard, we’ll reap the rewards. And those rewards come in the form of salaries, bonuses, raises, promotions, and the “good life.”  It’s not just monetary – we often define ourselves through our work. It’s a central part of who we are.

But the truth? The more successful we are, the less time we have for ourselves. And it can leave you exhausted and wondering if it’s all worth it.

Ironic, isn’t it? Here was Madison – a successful, independent, career woman – and yet, she didn't have control over her own time. But what if she switched the success formula, so that TIME became her most important variable? Time to take long refreshing breaks from work. Time to take care of her own health and find joy. Time to do what she wants when she wants. And if Madison wants to jump into her dream life decades earlier than she ever thought possible, why not?


Madison had the resources, but she didn’t have a plan, or direction, for her life. Where was her North Star? She joined me in the Financial Freedom Accelerator, and I could see her excitement build as I shared the Dream-Plan-Save-Do framework. By the end of our third session, she had a full-scale plan drawn out that included a clear vision of how she wanted to spend her days, a strategy to build her Dream Fund, and the logistics of how she will carve out more time for travel (one of her biggest loves).

Madison rediscovered joy. She let go of some of the things at the office that could be delegated. She reclaimed her personal time. 



You won't believe this! I rearranged my work schedule to make room for a plein air art class in the summer, and my Dream Fund is growing – I’m getting close to reaching my magical year of travel. I’m taking back my time, my life, my future!

I am so proud of Madison! She has made some remarkable shifts since participating in the Accelerator and a coaching session. Madison realized that she can be successful while carving out amazing personal experiences. And she knows that it’s all about priorities – she’s making better spending decisions. Madison has a clear path to financial freedom and she’s happier than she’s been in a long time.

Dear friend,

I built a fabulous career, just like Madison. Then one day, a friend and colleague stopped by my office. She said, "Brenda, I feel like I can't even stop by to say HI anymore. I can see you're looking over my shoulder at the clock on the wall." And she was right. I was so busy just keeping up with my work that I couldn't be bothered to ask a friend, "Hey, how are you doing?"

It was a wake-up call. When was the last time I felt carefree? The truth of it was that my life was what fit around my work. I defined myself by my career. And I had no time to find me, to rediscover what makes me smile.

Today, my life is focused on joy. You can find me travelling the USA in my RV with my three cats. I built financial freedom so that I can spend my days hiking mountain trails, navigating canyons, and watching sunrises over the ocean. As a financial coach, I want to help you move your journey forward - not just your journey to wealth, but your journey to joy.

💖 I am here for you.
