Coaching

Money is simple. Our relationship with money is often very complex.

For the last twenty-plus years there’s been a big push to improve citizens’ “financial literacy.” The efforts have proven to be an utter failure. That’s right, after twenty years and untold resources, financial literacy scores are worse than ever.

As tragic as that fact is, what I find more tragic is this: financial literacy does not correlate to financial behavior. That’s right — even if financial literacy efforts were successful in improving scores, higher scores do not correlate to, much less cause, positive financial behavior.

To break it down even further: knowing how money works doesn’t guarantee responsible money habits.

Okay, so if financial literacy doesn’t change financial behavior, what does?

I’m so glad you asked. The answer: Financial Socialization. Continue reading “Services”

personal bio

I was born in The Volunteer State but I spent my early years in the Badger State where I learned to love autumn leaves and German-influenced architecture. Just in time to start elementary school we moved again, this time to the Land of Enchantment. From there we spent a few years in Big Sky Country before finally ending up in The Centennial State, aka Colorful Colorado.

I was an unusual child and I had an unusual childhood. I attended seven different schools between 1st grade and high school graduation, was terribly shy as a child, and struggled with at least one undiagnosed learning challenge. Suffice it to say, I did not shine as a student.

My experience as a “tomboy” in a family and in an era not particularly welcoming of non-gender-conforming individuals left a deep impression. I played baseball before Title IV and thus wasn’t allowed to participate in the boys-only Pony Leagues once I turned 12. I liked dirt bikes and pen knives; I wanted to study Tech Arts not Home Ec; my hair was too short for a Farah Fawcett haircut and you wouldn’t have caught me dead in a Gunne Sax dress (or any dress for that matter).

The point is, my experience of being shunned and ridiculed for not conforming to social norms as a child/teen, formed the bedrock of my commitment to social justice, empathy, and inclusivity as an adult.

Accolades

Two thumbs up

The presentation Elizabeth provided was well done. She was very knowledgeable on the topic and she showed it. That in itself gained the trust of the people within the audience. Her presentation style was great. She engaged the students in conversations throughout the presentation, which kept everyone alert. I could tell that she really cared about the topic and wanted people to understand how certain things affects your credit score.

Flattened learning curve

As busy as I am, I know I never would have made it through the learning curve without Elizabeth.  Now I can focus on the bigger picture and create a plan I’m comfortable with.

Awesome & Eye-opening!

It was really awesome and eye opening to hear Elizabeth’s advice regarding money management! What a woman of great wisdom, advice, and inspiration. Personally, I feel like she made managing money seem more possible than it ever has been before. Money has always been a negatively emotional subject for me, but now I see the light and I can truly say that I now speak of money with positive energy.
