NICHE: Who We Serve

We serve those who love to serve others. Our focus is on providing support to financial coaches who are motivated to help others save for their future, manage debt, and break the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle.

Value 1: Clients before coaches | Coaches before employees | Employees before profits

Business should be in service of the public, not the owners. We base all our decisions on the above priority.

First, what is right for the end client; second, what's best for the coaches we serve; third for our employees; and our profits are dead last. See our other values in our FAQ below.

Origin STORY

We were on a field trip to a genetics lab when we were bitten by a radioactive spider . . . .

No, wrong story.

We (Garrett & Josh) began this journey with a conversation about how to help financial coaches limit their liability by staying away from investment, legal, or other prohibited advice.

As we talked, we both realized the great need financial coaches had for building, growing, and scaling their businesses. While a lot of great resources existed for the coaching process, we saw a vacuum for true guidance on marketing, sales, business operations, technology, legal compliance, and everything else required to run a successful business. Or more accurately, to be able to turn coaching from a side gig into a career supported by a successful business.
