I work with people who barely make $1000 per month or about $12,000 per year and people who make over $20k per month or over $240,000 per year.
I also work with people who make over $40k every month and have debt, no savings, and don’t own a home. These folks make almost $480,000 per year.
That's a huge difference in income. You'd think they would need different coaching.
While all of my coaching is personalized, I've come to realize that it's not based on income. People need different coaching because they're different people, not because they make different amounts of money.
Long-Term Financial Health Needs to be a Priority
Saving more money and being financially secure is less about how much money you make and MORE about what you do with what you have. It’s about your behaviors and what motivates your behaviors, not about how much you’re able to bring in.
If you made $20k per month and spent $19k every month, you’d be able to save $1000 every month. That sounds great to most people, doesn’t it!
At that rate, if the person I’m coaching started at age 30 saving $1000 per month, they could retire at age 67 with almost $4 million in the bank.
Sounds good, right? Nope. It's not going to last.
Let me explain.
At their current rate of spending, and taking into account inflation… they’d run out of money by age 72, just 5 years after retiring.
