The SimpleMoney Club

It’s the next best thing to having a financial planner on speed dial!

Are You. . .

. . . intimidated by money?  (You're not alone, most of my clients were.)
. . . someone who wants to simplify your financial life?  (Don't we all??)


. . . someone who likes to DIY with your money, but want a professional to point you in the right direction?  (I see this more and more.)
. . . pretty savvy with your money, but want to reach your full potential?  (There is always room for improvement!)

If you said yes to one or more of the above, the SimpleMoney Club might be for you.

Let's face it, there is plenty of information out there about personal finance.  But how do you know what is "good" information, and whom can you trust?  As a Certified Financial Planner with over 21 years of experience, I'm here to map it out for you.

No matter where you are on your journey to financial abundance, you are sure to benefit from the step-by-step pathway offered in the club.  You'll have regular opportunities to get your questions answered and ongoing challenges to keep you motivated and moving on your path. 

Join me on a fun, educational adventure!

"I took the Simple Money course because I was avoiding learning about financial issues. Investing scared me, and I really had no idea how to plan for the future. So I decided to invest in myself by learning new terms and concepts. The surprise has been that the coursework has helped me uncover obstacles and preconceptions that have limited me. Each month's projects give me greater insight into my financial state and also give me a sense of mastery and comfort. I am breaking through a lot of denial and getting things done! Thank you, Dawn, for creating a systematic, interesting and meaningful process."

"Despite the fact that I'm in my 40s and have raised a couple of kids to adulthood - I was an absolute infant in the world of finance. I understood how to live frugally and pay my bills and that was it. Dawn has been able to explain the basics I didn't know, as well as the complicated stuff I always thought was way over my head. Clear and to the point, without dumbing it down. And the simplicity angle is sure to connect to anyone with a minimalist outlook! Simplifying your finances is a such a relief."

"Simple Money is a great program. It combines routines to keep us mindful of what we spend and what we bring in - planning for emergencies, repairs, retirement, and fun - along with the concept of simple living, which means creating a space that makes us feel joyful! I think its greatest value is the peace of mind it gives me, allowing me to sleep at night. Everyone should develop these skills. "

"Whether you are feeling pretty confident about your financial savvy, or totally lost, the SimpleMoney membership course has something for you. I have basic financial knowledge and had a plan when I got married, but now 15 years and 3 kids later, with a tight budget, I was feeling the need for an update/checkup, and this has worked great. Dawn is personable, funny, and she knows her financial stuff. She shares her own perspectives, experiences and her financial knowledge readily, without making judgement about the financial situation people may be in. She is encouraging and tries to break financial projects down into manageable chunks. That said, she does not do the work for you. If you are ready and motivated to take an honest look at your financial picture, it is a great cost-effective way to figure out where you are, and a plan for where you want to be. "

The plan is that there will be material in the Club suitable for all levels of personal finance proficiency. 

Initially, there will be a bias toward beginner-level material, but each month material appealing to various degrees of knowledge will be offered.

Listen, there is no way to sugar coat this.  If you want to reach financial independence and abundance, you'll have to put in some effort.  It will take time.  Time well spent to gain the independence you desire and deserve.

However, that should not deter you.  All important things are worth the effort!  What I can promise is that if you will commit to the process of learning and taking forward steps in your financial life each week, you WILL see progress and positive momentum.

No problem.  You can cancel your membership at any time.  Just email Dawn at [email protected] and I'll be happy to cancel your membership.  If you are an annual member, a prorated refund for the unused months will be computed based on the regular monthly price.
