Couples Guide to Financial Fitness
so you can be on your way to financial peace of mind
a happier marriage!
I help couples like YOU work out money challenges
to MEET money milestones, SECURE a happy marriage, and BUILD a financially peaceful future.
When couples come to me, they're usually feeling...
They've bought the books, listened to the podcasts, and downloaded the apps, but nothing has worked and they feel like a failure.
They are a failure because adults are supposed to KNOW how to manage their finances intuitively or they should be making more money to not have this problem.
They feel like they have done something wrong and let their partner or family down because they made an extravagant purchase, invested poorly, or are not making enough money.
They are STUCK! Even THINKING about milestones like college or retirement fills them with dread and makes them panic. And THAT just makes them want to AVOID...so the envelopes go unopened and the taxes are filed late.
Just plain MAD at being STUCK! And then blame starts...they blame their spouse, they blame themselves, and they blame the situation.
Will they make it? Will the marriage make it? Is divorce the only way to fix this? Really worried they don't have what it takes and wondering if they should just give up.
Thinking about how to make money better, but so hard to talk about it with the person who is SUPPOSED to be closest to you. If they talk, there will be a fight for sure, so it's better to say nothing. Meanwhile, they feel alone -- it is hard to feel connected when you can't talk about your real fears and concerns about money.
As a committed partner in a marriage, you want to feel connected, heard, and taken seriously in all ways, especially finances.
That's where I come in.
What if you could have exceptional money communication skills and financial peace of mind right now? Imagine the possibilities...
No more Fighting
Calm and helpful money conversations even when it's hard or complicated.
No more Disconnection
Being able to work as a team enhances your feelings of connection.
No more sleepless nights
You are getting a full and peaceful night's rest because you know there is ENOUGH.
No more end of month money stress
That "surprise" bill which can be covered, no problem! You know the bills are covered before they are due.
No more Fear, Guilt, and Shame
Understanding these emotions and how they impact your money as a couple reduces avoidance, which automatically leads to missed payments and lack of planning.
You have a plan so you are KNOWING your finances instead of guessing them and hoping for the best.
Let that sink in for a moment...
no fights, no sleepless nights,
no unexpected stress over money, AND a solid plan for your future...Sounds great, doesn't it?
This could be YOURS!
As a Couples Money Coach, I help you
Understand you both have a part in reaching your money milestones together to reduce blaming and promote building.
Go from not opening envelopes to a system opening bills to anticipate and mitigate your potential financial red flags BEFORE they become problems..
Go from hiding to openness to creating trust and the ability to share and consult with eachother.
Learn skills and tools to communicate about all financial decisions so that you can talk safely about MONEY (and anything else).
Become a Team
If you work together as a team, you will have a happier marriage.
This is CLOSER than you think! It is YOURS when you're ready
And...it is ONE DECISION away!!!
Are you ready???
Are you ready to STOP fighting over money?
End those arguments which have you going to bed mad and if this will be the last straw that leads to divorce!
Are you ready to unpack the emotions which get in the way of using the skills which you KNOW are good for you and your money?
Anticipate and mitigate your potential emotional red flags BEFORE they become problems with money.
Are you ready for financial intimacy and closeness in your marriage?
Increase the connection and "WOW" in your marriage because you are in sync over your money.
Are you ready to face your financial future as a couple with CONFIDENCE instead of FEAR?
Freely discuss retirement, vacations, college, the kids, YOU NAME IT (without that lump in your throat).
Are you ready to become Financially Fit?
Just as fitness improves health, financial fitness WILL improve the health of your marriage.
If your answer is YES,
you are in the RIGHT PLACE!
Meet Your Couples Money Coach
Hi, I'm Carine
I've been in your EXACT shoes!
My husband and I have had to find ways to communicate and get organized about money while raising our 4 kids -- not easy, but so worth it! The problems happened when we DID NOT communicate! I know these 3 things to be true:
Money and lack of money are the number one causes of marital conflicts which lead to DIVORCE.
If the money conversations DON'T happen, greater damage to finances and financial security WILL happen.
There IS a way to communicate and strategize to move past difficult emotions and make good decisions.
I can show you how!!!
