Many church leaders help their congregation members get through tough financial situations. This often takes the form of 1-1 counseling and budgeting help. But are your lay leaders trained financial counselors or are they just “good with money”? We offer training programs to help your lay leaders learn proven financial coaching processes to help your church members live in financial excellence!
High School or College groups
Too many kids are graduating school without the life skills they need to maintain a healthy financial lifestyle. They’re simply not taught the basics of financial management in most schools. Then they enter the world as adults and the first thing that comes in the mail is a credit card offer.
If that isn’t setting our kids up for failure, we don’t know what is. We offer fun, entertaining classes designed to capture the attention of young adults and help them avoid the mistakes we’ve all made with money. They’ll learn to make smart financial decisions and avoid debt so they can invest for their future. Talk about changing the world through a generation – imagine our kids today knowing how to avoid debt and build wealth instead of sending them into the world to figure it out by themselves!
We offer a wide variety of training options for businesses of all sizes. If you have team members in leadership positions that need development to grow as true leaders, we can help. We are experienced mentors who can help your managers become leaders in any environment.
With 70% of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, your workforce is likely distracted while on the job. They’re not thinking about their work performance. They’re thinking about how to pay their next bill. Our seminars and classes help relieve the financial stress your employees are feeling at home, and let them focus on being productive at work instead.
In addition to training for your employees, we can train your leadership teams to help their employees battle their financial situations. What better way to earn loyalty and build trust with your team members than to help them solve their personal problems from the heart?
If you have a special topic, let us know. We’ll custom tailor the presentation to fit your desired topic. It’s as easy as asking.
“As Executive Officer of the 357th Network Support Company, I greatly appreciate the opportunity that you have created for my Soldiers in enabling them to take control of their finances. The presentations that you have given to my company over the last couple of years have proven extremely beneficial for my Soldiers. This has given them the ability to examine their own financial behaviors and have given them the knowledge to establish a sustainable financial plan.
Since your first presentation at the 357th NSC, I know that many of my Soldiers have implemented your financial suggestions by establishing an emergency fund and are beginning to eradicate their debt. Typically, when Soldiers learn that they are about to receive a yearly financial brief, many mysteriously disappear; however, many were disappointed to learn that they the missed your presentation this year. I am glad to see that my Soldiers are interested, interactive, and engaged in your presentations and I know that the leadership and Soldiers look forward to seeing your presentation again.”

“I had asked Matt to come to my National Guard unit to give a presentation on eliminating debt, managing your finances, and building wealth. He arrived about a half hour early to set up and was ready to roll on time. His presentation held the attention of my Soldiers for the entire hour, and he was gracious enough to stay after to answer any questions the Soldiers had wanted to ask him in a more private setting. He stayed until all who wanted to ask a question had an answer. His military background has given him a lifetime of experiences and this translated well with the audience. I would highly recommend Matt to speak to your group. He has a unique ability to hold an audience, and the information that he gave my unit works.”

“Thank you for giving your presentation, “Simple Budgeting Techniques That Actually Work”, to the Sheboygan Falls Senior Dining Group on May 4, 2011.
I was very impressed with how quickly you established rapport with our group by your relaxed, comfortable style and sense of humor, your ability to perceive the individual concerns of our group and your obvious knowledge of your topic! You spoke in a clear, understandable way with good response to our questions. Your hand-out sheets helped us follow along with your talk and the group quiz nicely summarized your key points; both were nice take-homes. You kept our attention and interest from beginning to end, and we were well pleased with your visit.
You were among the best presenters we’ve had, Matt, and I would recommend you as a speaker, without reservation, to any group.”- Toni Becker, Mgr, Sheboygan Falls Senior Center
“I LOVED the seminar entitled “You”re Not the Boss of Me”! Amazing. It was like you were talking about my husband and me personally. You addressed absolutely everything in a very interesting (and at times, funny) manner that was also easy to understand. All I can say is, I am extremely thankful to have come across your invaluable service and to have you in my corner.”
