Are you here for the same reason we are?

No matter what stage of life you’re in, you want to Make Dollars Make SENSE.

You’ll notice that SENSE is capitalized. Why? Because around here it’s an acronym that stands for Smart Economics Naturally Seem Real. Why is that important? Because that’s where the rubber meets the road. When you can Make [your] Dollars Make Smart Economics Naturally Seem Real, then you’ve found your key to financial success.

Let’s break that acronym down into pieces:

Smart Economics – That is, you’re making your money do the most good for you.

Naturally Seem Real – Your work is paying off – making good financial decisions is part of your nature.

So, you may be asking, “How can we help you?” And, quite honestly, that is the first question our financial coach will ask you – because your situation is unique, and only you know what you want your financial future to look like.

Why are we here?

We are here to inspire you to use your finances to make an impact on the world.

The cool part is: We want you to define what the definition of “impact” is.

You want to build water wells in Third World countries? Impact!

You want to send your kids to a good school? Impact!

You want to eat the finest foods while traveling the world on your yacht? Impact!

The problem is, the average person can’t make a significant impact on the world because they don’t have their finances in order. According to the 2015 study by NerdWallet, the average American household has nearly $16K in consumer debt (credit cards, car loans, student loans, etc.). Keep in mind that this number doesn’t include home mortgages.

We think that is WAAAAAY TOO MUCH! Our ideal number (also our current personal number) is $0.00 in consumer debt.

You may not think it is achievable to get from where you are.

We thought the same when we started.

We learned how to do it, and we want to walk you through every step of the process.
