6 great reasons to join the Finance for Freedom course
If you want to be truly happy and content in life, then you know that you need to have your money under control. It will give you peace, security, choice and most of all freedom!
But it’s so hard to find the time isn’t it? It’s difficult enough finding the time to do everything! Juggling work, family and running a house, leaves little time for anything else, so you keep pushing it to the back of your mind.
Next month will be different.
Before you know it, the end of the month is approaching again, and you are stressing out about when pay day is. You are keeping your fingers crossed every time you hand over your card, feeling slightly ill as you check your balance, and hoping that the washing machine doesn’t start that awful rattling again.
If this sounds familiar, please don’t think that you are alone. This is a similar picture in households all over the country. It’s one of the biggest challenges that many people face.
That’s why I created my Finance for Freedom course. It’s designed to help women, just like you, to change their lives beyond comprehension.
Here’s 6 reasons why it could be well worth your time investing in this course.
1 You’ll never need to worry about pay day again.
Truly! This course will help you to organise your money effectively, and change your spending patterns, so that you never need to worry about pay day again. By making great money decisions, and organising your money cleverly, you will find that you have money in the bank for the things that mean the most to you.
It will help you to change your thoughts, behaviour and attitude towards money. You will find it easier to say no to things, find that there are things that you no longer want and you feel great about it. It’s about you, and what makes you feel good. You won’t feel that you are denying yourself, but will feel empowered, motivated and confident that you are making the right decisions, like these previous clients.
“My habit of buying things at the start of the month has changed and now I buy things after all necessary bills and expenses have been paid. This meaning I am not left short for the things that are essential. This has had a positive impact on both me and my finances as I’m am not stressed at the end of the month or left wondering how I am going to buy the weekly shop.”
“I hope my days of burying my head in the sand and reckless spending are a thing of the past. Planning food budget and menus, having set a figure per month but spending cash only on a weekly basis is a new habit. The three R’s is a new habit and it is now on a small card in my purse and can be viewed every time I open it.”
2 You’ll save money (and time!)
You will spend less money, with hundreds of clever tips about how to cut down on your spending, both on necessary and unnecessary items. However, you won’t feel like you are spending less money, because you will actually have MORE money to spend on the things that really matter to you. But you will notice the difference at the end of the month, when you still have money in your bank account!
You will also save time! Managing your finances will be so simple, that they won’t actually take much managing, You will have more time to spend doing the things that you love. I asked clients on my Your Money Sorted course how much they would save each month.
“Hopefully around £300 each month by the time I pay off my credit card. Hopefully more!”
“£250 for house savings monthly – however, I will begin to use the extra savings to help me repay some debt early.”
“Probably about the same, £240 if I keep my good habits going.”
It’s what you can do with this money that makes the real difference though! Making good decisions can turn those savings into serious amounts of cash!
Seriously, money worries cause nothing but pain. They nag away at the back of your mind, or right slap bang at the front of it, and eat away at your happiness, and eventually your health suffers too. You don’t feel as if you are living life and making the most of every moment, it’s more like you are surviving life and trying to make ends meet each month. That level of stress is not good for your physical well-being, and it’s certainly not good for your emotional well-being.
“Money was always something I worried about. I didn’t really want to face up to it, I just tried to make sure I had enough to last the month. This course encouraged me to take control of my finances and manage it better so that I can relax more and perhaps afford holidays without the worry of debt afterwards. It’s been an extremely worthwhile experience and I’ve already made significant savings. I’d highly recommend the course.”
“Sharing the first step, accepting the problems I had with debt, resulting in action and not so much beating self up. I found the tutor support excellent especially when dealing with unexpected emotions. I found the reading very informative and easy to follow. The net result of increased self awareness and self confidence to be able to be back in control of the finances is absolutely priceless.”
4 You’ll feel secure and have money for emergencies
This is life-changing. Having money in reserve for emergencies, is proven to increase your well-being, because it allows you to feel secure and safe. At the beginning of the course, we plan to save £500 to give you an emergency savings buffer, which will stop you from having to make high cost borrowing decisions, if the unexpected happens. As the course progresses, we will look to build an emergency fund of 3 -6 months worth of expenses, so that you and your family are well placed to cope with any emergency, such as illness, redundancy or a larger household expense.
“I don’t feel so panicked when I think about my money situation now, not because all my finances are perfect but because I feel that I have a better knowledge and understanding to deal with them.”
“I think I’m much less worried now. Being a freelancer makes me anxious about work etc but now that I know info such as how much is a safe amount of money to have saved should I ever be out of work for longer than expected, I can stop worrying as much!”
5 You will be able to retire before you hit your late 60’s
What do you see yourself doing in retirement? Relaxation? Travelling? Spending time with family and friends? Being able to eat out frequently? Treat your loved ones?
For me, the thought of still being in teaching until I am 68 is just not something that I want to contemplate. And who knows what will happen in the next 20 years? My retirement age could easily rise further. The thought of that made me take action.
Do you want to retire before your late 60’s? Can you afford to?
If you want to retire early, then you have to start planning it now and you have to make your money work well for you, so that you can afford to put more towards your retirement, without scrimping and saving now! These are comments from previous clients on my teachers’ retirement course.
“Really taking the time to think and break down what I actually want for my retirement, rather than focussing on having enough money. When it boiled down to it, my ideal retirement will not require as much money as I first thought.”
“It made me feel more in control of my pension. I am now more motivated to achieve my goals.”
6 You will have MORE money to spend doing the things you love
This course is not about being miserable with money. It’s not about denying yourself. It’s about deciding what is MOST important to you, and it’s about making that happen. Having MORE holidays if that’s what you want. Eating out MORE, if that’s your priority. Hiring a cleaner, to make your life easier. Or ordering freshly cooked meals straight to your door if that would help to reduce your stress.
It’s up to you. Because the whole course is designed for you. It’s interactive and personal, yet you still have the encouragement and support from me and all the other women on the course.
“The positive feedback was the most useful thing. Eileen you are so wonderful to deal with and really made me realise that my situation wasn’t as bad as I thought it was. You were always available for any questions and responded to everything very quickly. It was like having my very own, personal finance coach with me whenever I needed you.”
“I enjoyed the relaxed and confidential atmosphere, thinking through problems and solutions together. The tools that you provided Eileen with quick links to relevant websites for me to research a bit more. I really found the holistic approach to finances really helpful look at all aspects of saving and making money.”
All these quotes are from real clients, who have done my courses, and given me feedback, so that I can continually improve my courses.
