About Saks of Savings
Saks of Savings Financial Coaching was founded because no one should be denied their dream of home ownership. If you need help qualifying for a mortgage, or feel overwhelmed by the mortgage process, then financial coaching is right for you. A Saks of Savings Financial Coach will guide you and provide a plan to purchase your first home.
I have always been told that I have a knack for explaining complicated topics in an understandable way. This skill came in handy in my first career as a Special Education math and science teacher.
While I was very effective at raising the achievement of my students, I always felt that the most powerful way to help others was in a one-on-one setting. Then it occurred to me that I could combine my talent at teaching and guiding others with another passion of mine, personal finance.
My passion for personal finance came from a discovery of the Financial Independence (FI) movement. When I started exploring the FI movement my aim was simply to achieve my financial goals faster. I didn't realize that it would also increase my health and happiness along the way. Spending less money never caused me to feel deprived. Not only did embracing a simpler lifestyle help me meet my own financial goals, it truly became a passion, just ask my wife!
Founder of Saks of Savings
The lifestyle I discovered helped me pay off more than $40,000 of debt and save 30% of my income for the future.
I feel strongly that not only can Saks of Savings Financial Coaching help you meet your financial goals, but that it will lead to a happier life as well.
