Our Story:

When Luke and Amanda first met, Luke was a frugal and number-oriented minimalist. While Amanda loved a good bargain, there was little intention behind many of her financial choices. She was caught in the convenience of Amazon’s “buy now” feature and her bank account showed it.

After an open and heartfelt conversation surrounding why Amanda’s savings account never truly seemed to be going up, despite a great full time job, Luke offered to help.

So began a thorough financial review of all fixed and non-monthly expenses  – the same process by which we now work through with our consulting clients – as well as a clear look at Amanda’s TJ Maxx habit. With this new clarity of WHERE the money was going, a spark was lit.

With this clear picture of what her lifestyle truly cost, personal finances were no longer a source of stress and anxiety or shrouded in uncertainty. Line item after line item, Amanda and Luke evaluated their value and if worthwhile – evaluated ways to optimize or save, and if not – cut from their budgets.

As lifestyle costs continued to decrease, and a passion for personal finance growing, Amanda and Luke put their freed up money to work, paying off college loans and a rental property mortgage in full.

Having worked through this process first hand, Amanda and Luke are driven to improve financial literacy and empower others with tools, education, and support to be more mindful about their dollars and cents.
