Do You Have A Financial Coach?

A person who has participated in sports at any level understands the importance of having a coach.

The same is true for your finances. A financial coach will help you accomplish far more than you ever could on your own.

Let’s describe some characteristics of a great coach:

  1. Knowledge  A great coach will bring deep knowledge to the person they are serving.
  2. Teacher  Knowledge that cannot be transferred is worthless. Excellent coaches possess the ability to share their wisdom with players.
  3. Encouragement  Players, even the greatest ones in all sports, routinely give credit to their coaches for their ability to encourage them and draw the very best effort out of them.
  4. Accountability  Coaches hold players accountable for their performance, and provide discipline accordingly. Not to punish them, but to help them make progress toward the shared goal.
  5. Vision  Leaders have vision. Proverbs 29:18 shares “Where there is no vision, the people perish …”  A great coach will be able see potential in a person’s life and help them see it.

Proverbs 15:22 speaks to the importance of wise counsel (coaching): “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.

Your financial journey will be helped greatly when assisted by counsel from a wise coach.
