Financial Coach Academy Reviews

“I can’t even really believe I was calling myself a financial coach before taking the Financial Coach Academy. I could not recommend this program enough to anybody who is motivated to grow their coaching business and learn from the best of the best.”

MEERA MEYER, Life Money Balance

“Before enrolling in FCA, I had a passion and a dream but hadn’t made any steps toward launching my financial coaching business. I have my MBA and can confidentially say that the FCA program is like an MBA for financial coaches. I am still amazed that with the help of the FCA I’ve been able to build a business from the ground up and in just 16 weeks!”

AMANDA BOUZAKINE, Broad Park Financial

A Financial Coaching Program That Covers It All

The Financial Coach Academy™ will walk you through step-by-step how to become a coach and efficiently run your business.

After more than a decade of running our financial coaching business and years of running this course, we have identified the five core concepts that every financial coach needs to be a successful coach.

The Academy has assigned each of these concepts a module, and within each module is a series of lessons, videos, handouts, materials and actions to help you work through mastering this concept. Because the course is designed to have you build your business and grow your coaching skills as you work through it, by Module 2, you’ll take on clients.

And by the time you finish all five modules, you’ll have the coaching skills to serve clients confidently and a business that is 100% up and running. Who knows, you might even start to enjoy selling your services. (WARNING: This is a common side effect of completing Module 4.)

Get Training Created By And Specifically For Financial Coaches

Financial coaching is a different kind of business.

You need financial knowledge and numbering crunching abilities people usually only associate with financial advisors.

You need the ability to help people change their behaviors and mindset which are usually traits associated with business or life coaches.

You also need the drive and discipline of any other entrepreneur running a business.

Being a financial coach takes mastering a unique blend of skills and traits.

It’s one of the many reasons we love being financial coaches and think financial coaches are so freaking awesome.

That’s why our program doesn’t just focus on financial theories or coaching skills. It covers this trifecta of skills to serve as your foundation.

The Only Financial Coach Training That Provides Specific and Detailed Guidance on All 3 Areas:

Expand Your Coaching Skills

It’s one thing to teach a client a financial concept. It’s a whole other skillset to coach them to change their behavior. We teach you how to be an effective coach who gets better and quicker results from your clients.

Gain Financial Knowledge

We teach you all of the same financial concepts we teach our own clients. You will build upon the natural skills you already have with money and get more financial exercises to work through with your clients.

Get A Business Blueprint

Build the systems and master the tech needed to run a business that’s as close to auto pilot that it can be. And no, you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars every month on fancy software to do it.

We are the creators and instructors of the Financial Coach Academy, but first and foremost,

How We Structure Our Financial Coach Training

And How We Get You To Take Action

Anyone can learn how to be a coach. We want you to become a coach.

In the Academy, we teach you and provide everything you need to become a successful financial coach. We show you how to do it all (everything from creating materials for your clients to materials for your marketing) but we don’t stop there.

You know the saying “knowledge is power”? Yeah we call BS on that. We believe “applied knowledge is power” and our goal is that you are applying all the tools, skills and strategies we give you. Our goal is that you are attracting clients, inviting them to work with you, coaching them toward amazing results for their life and money and most importantly, that you’re loving the journey.

That’s why we nudge you in loving ways throughout the course to continue making progress and to go out, talk to people and actually DO THE THING (financial coaching). We are coaches. The course isn’t designed without giving lots of thought to what YOU need in addition to knowledge in order to confidently coach your clients and make a living doing this work.

Our course is designed for the coach who is ready to take action and become a coach, whether that’s as a side hustle or making coaching your primary source of income. And it’s for coaches who feel a bit nervous too. Don’t worry, we got you.

Know Exactly Where You Are With the Rubric

Every module also includes a rubric, which is your guide to the lessons and their associated actions in that module. We’ve separated each lesson into four action steps: learn, design, build and finesse.

Watch the lesson videos and absorb what we’re teaching.

Plan, brainstorm, and sketch out how that lesson applies to your coaching, using all the templates and examples we provide as guides.

Create and build each step of your client journey for your business. Watch as your business starts to come together – step-by-step!

Specific steps to help you refine and perfect what you’ve built over time to make it more authentically you!
Here’s The Module One Rubric

Notice the turtle? We’ve included those little guys in the rubrics to callout the places coaches commonly get tripped up. And then we help you move past them!

How long does it take to complete the Academy?

That’s the question we get asked most frequently. Our answer is that’s really difficult to say because it’s a self-paced course but the average is 4-6 months.

You can go at your own speed so there is no set time. And because some lessons will be easier than others based on your own skillset, how quickly you complete the course is really up to you. We aim to provide the whole shebang with this course so keep in mind you are building your business and practicing your coaching as you go. This is not a course you will finish in a day or a week because you simply can’t launch a business or learn how to coach in that amount of time. In fact, we recommend you don’t try to get through it in less than a month’s time.

But we don’t want you waiting to coach clients until you complete the entire course. By the end of Module 2, you have enough of your business built and you have enough coaching skills to help people, so we encourage you to go out and start getting clients while you finish the remaining modules. The goal is that you start coaching relatively quickly while you continue designing your program and building your business.
