Grandma’s Jars provides professional financial coaching that is made to fit your goals, lifestyle and priorities.
We will work with you to set up a budget plan that works, teach you how to use it, and then meet with you monthly to provide guidance, support, and accountability.
There is an old saying “give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he will have food for a lifetime”
At Grandma’s Jars, teaching you how to budget is just the start. Once you have mastered budgeting, we show you how to use it to build a strong cash reserve, pay off debt, and set and achieve financial goals that are important to you.
We are passionate about our budgeting system and coaching program because 15 years of experience has taught us that it really works. However, we also understand that it’s not for everyone. While we will lead you through the process step by step it will require your time and effort.
One of our key requirements when taking on a new coaching client is that you are as committed to the program as we are to helping you succeed.
