Garrett Philbin - Be Awesome Not Broke
I help people take the stress out of money so they feel free to be who they are and do what they love.
“I inspire people to discover what’s possible in their lives once money is no longer a roadblock.”
Meet The Coach
I am equally comfortable in both worlds – the practical and emotional/behavioral sides of money. For people to be successful, they need to master both sides too.
Without understanding what drives your unconscious behaviors around money you will inevitably revert to old patterns, whether it’s six months or six years later. You may be able to create a budget but will always find yourself “falling off the wagon.”
Without a practical knowledge of the “How” – how to align your spending with your values or how to create a plan to make it happen – you won’t take consistent action and reach the goals you set.
My role as a coach is that of a teacher, accountability partner and guide who will help you master both your relationship to money and become intentional about how you use it.
The Initial Four-Step Core Process
Individual money coaching is designed as a positive and productive way to explore, discover and transform your unconscious patterns and behaviors around money that keep you from being successful. Through the 4-step Core Process we explore together your Money Biography, identify from whom you’ve inherited patterns (both positive and negative) and how to manage their influences. We then determine which of your gifts, talents and abilities are most valuable to you and how to leverage them to achieve your highest potential. The Money Coaching Process is highly experiential and during these sessions you will learn how you are “hardwired” around money in ways that are generally not fully conscious. By the end of the fourth session, you will have a clear understanding of your core money patterns and their origin and can begin to work on your “Money Coaching Action Plan.”
Money Coaching Action Plan
Change of any kind can only take place under certain conditions. In Money Coaching, these conditions are threefold:
1. An understanding and new level of awareness of what the problem or issue is
2. The willingness to change, which literally involves doing something different than what we’ve been doing previously
3. Implementing new strategies and actions for change
On-going Coaching: Support and Accountability
As your money coach, I will work with you on an on-going basis to support you and help you to stay on track and accountable to creating the changes you desire.
One of the core beliefs in Money Coaching is that awareness needs to be followed through with action in order for meaningful change to occur. I am committed to working with you on an on-going basis and consider myself a partner in your success. On-going support and coaching programs are designed to your particular need. This can be accomplished in a series of weekly or bi-weekly sessions to help you implement the changes you desire.
Learning about the Eight Money Archetypes is a dynamic and exciting way to become aware of your underlying patterns and behaviors around money.
These Archetypes are present in all of us. You will take a Money Type Quiz and we will take a look at the unique blend of types that are currently active in your life, which are beneficial and which ones need your attention to create the right blend of factors to help you move towards prosperity and a more purposeful life.
This is for you if you feel like you have no awareness around where your money is going, and each month you look back and ask “where did it all go and why am I not further ahead than I am?”. I will help you get clear on where you currently are financially, we’ll set clear and tangible goals based on your priorities/values, and I will be with you every step of the way as you make those goals happen.
