Hi, I’m Lauren Rilling
Owner/Founder, Financial Coach
Little confession: I used to dread checking my bank account. If ignorance was bliss, then I was practically in heaven (spoiler alert: it wasn’t). I had no plan other than making it paycheck to paycheck and saving what I could whenever possible.
The one saving grace is that I was taught to avoid new debt. Once my college loans were paid off, I set out to complete grad school 100% debt-free, while making a teacher’s salary and while my husband was attending seminary full-time.
Two and half years later, we had paid our way through $30,000 of tuition, both graduated with masters degrees, managed to cash-flow an around the world move, survived two months of unemployment, AND celebrated the arrival of our twin daughters… all without debt!
I didn’t know exactly what curveballs life would throw at us, but God did. He generously provided as we learned how to be intentional with our money, finding joy in sacrificing momentary wants so there would be enough for our needs and biggest priorities. We learned first-hand how to budget for irregular income, how to live in “emergency fund mode,” how to save for big purchases, and how to financially navigate a path forward despite the unknowns.
The financial disciplines we learned gave us so much freedom, not only with money but with our life choices. I was able to stay home with the twins, for example, instead of going back to work immediately. This newfound passion for financial wellness led me to help family and friends, and eventually to complete formal training as a Ramsey Solutions Master Financial Coach.
Since 2016 I’ve had the privilege of guiding clients to debt-freedom and beyond. My team and I are honored to serve you and excited to get to know you!
To Your Success,
If you can tune into your purpose and really align with it, setting goals so that your vision is an expression of that purpose, then life flows much more easily.- Jack Canfield
