Leave your money stress with your marriage — behind you.
Money coaching for middle-aged divorced women who are ready to take control of their finances and live life on their own terms.
Let me guess — when it came down to the labor division in your former marriage, you managed the household. You juggled everything from cleaning and meal planning to child rearing and maintaining the complex, ever-evolving family schedule and social calendar.
Meanwhile, your ex managed the money and took care of your family’s long-term investments. They may have even given you an allowance to cover the household spending.
It seemed easier at the time. You already had more than enough on your plate. And you’ve never felt like you were that great at math anyway. You were happy not to think about money and assumed you’d never have to.
So you didn’t learn how to manage your money and now you worry that you never will.
But it doesn’t have to stay that way.
You don’t need to slog through confusing financial advice in order to snap out of money paralysis, let go of stress, and create your dream life — you need a clear-cut plan tailored to you.
Here’s the thing: you’re not alone.
56% of women defer to their spouses to make financial decisions for the family.
It’s easy to beat yourself up after the fact or regret not taking on a more active role in your family’s money management. Because now that you’ve found your way through a “gray divorce” you feel like you should already know how to do all of this.
Shying away from learning how to manage your money feels easier in the moment, but it leaves you on unstable ground.
You avoid looking at your bank balances. You ignore your unopened credit card statements for as long as possible. You don’t know if you’ll be able to make it on your own, but you also don’t know the alternative.
I get it. There’s a lot to learn.
But the good news is that you don’t have to do it alone.
You’re beginning a new chapter of your life and you deserve for it to be your best yet.
That’s what we’ll do together.
“Give a woman a dollar, and she can put it to good use. Teach her about how money really works, and she can change the world.” Linda Davis Taylor (author/podcast host/champion of financial literacy and well-being)
So how will money coaching help you learn how to manage your money?
Here’s my system for success:
1 What you’ve got
Have you ever gone grocery shopping without checking the pantry first? If so, then you know you often don’t end up getting what you need. So first we’ll check in on your money “pantry” and take stock so we shop prepared.
2 What you want
What do you want your money to do for you? Whether it’s making sure you can cover your monthly expenses or looking forward to retiring comfortably — I’ve got you. We’ll get clear on what you want for yourself now AND in the future. With that clarity, you can move toward the next chapter of your life.
3 What’s standing in your way
Much like when you redecorate a space, you’ve gotta clear out the old for the new. So we’re gonna do some serious spring cleaning on all your thoughts and beliefs about money that are decidedly *NOT* sparking joy. Money peace, here you come.
4 What we’re gonna do about it
Finally, we’ll take the guesswork out of what you need to do to achieve your goals (no matter the size). Armed with a personalized step-by-step action plan and ongoing support to knock out obstacles in your path, you’ll confidently move forward with your money. And the best part? We can adjust course as your plans change in your new life. You deserve to live life on your own terms.
MONEY COACH FOR MIDLIFE DIVORCÉES
Hey there, I’m Myra!
Let’s make your money work for you.
Have you ever noticed that most traditional financial advice is for young people? I’m glad they’re getting the guidance they need, but let’s be real — that advice doesn’t work for what you’re going through.
Starting over financially in your 50s (or later) is a completely different game.
When I got divorced at 53, my money problems couldn’t be solved by advice designed for people younger than my 27-year marriage. Neither can yours.
You need someone who’s been in your shoes to help you take control of your finances and build confidence with money no matter where you’re starting from.
Is money coaching for you?
Talking about money has long been considered a no-no. So bringing it up with friends is hard. But talking through our problems often makes them easier to overcome.
So even if you think that:
- Budgeting, saving, and investing are all so overwhelming. You don’t even know where to begin so it’s just easier not to think about it.
- You’re struggling with how to stop spending money on unnecessary things.
- Budgets aren’t for you. You’ve tried them a million times — nothing sticks.
- You don’t make enough money for tracking spending to be worth the time.
Talking to a pro can help you get out of your head and spring back into action. And that’s exactly what I’ll help you do with my money coaching.
You CAN learn how to manage your money.
And I’m here to make it easy.
