Taking Control of Your Finances to Live the Life You Want
Do you feel in control of your financial life? Without it, it’s hard to live the life you want. Learn the basic math, mindsets, and behaviors to build towards financial freedom. We'll explore the influence of your family background on how you’ve lived your financial life and discuss the hidden assumptions of consumption and debt in our capitalist system. The goal is owning all of your time, attention, and energy without worrying about money for the rest of your life.
In this women-only cohort, you will join other like-minded women on a path to self-discovery and financial empowerment. Your coach, Naomi, will be your judgement-free cheerleader and guide as you do this important work for yourself and your future.

There is only one person responsible for your financial health: you. Yet you probably spend little time thinking about or learning how to manage your finances. There’s no benefit in waiting to fix that. Most people live unconsciously or avoidant about money. As a result, people get victimized by the capitalist system, living in financial fragility and feeling like they never have enough. You can remove that worry and scarcity in your life by taking control of your relationship with money and build the life you want.
This course is work. It’s doing math, it’s emotional work, it’s a serious reexamination of your lifestyle and beliefs. It’s also worth it. People who have finished the course report saving $100-$800 per month more because of the changes they made. In other words, the course pays for itself many times over for those ready for it.
Module 1: Understanding money.
Module 2: Reducing consumption.
Module 3: Writing your manifesto and making a budget.
Ultimately, financial freedom is about being able to take care of your loved ones while making creative contributions to the world without waiting until you're 65. Read about SOFF founder Douglas's experience of achieving financial freedom by age 42.
You have two months to complete 32 lessons (about 45-60 minutes apiece). You'll have support and accountability from other students in an online discussion board, as well as your coach. You can take this course at your own schedule, anywhere in the world. The class community is important, so be prepared to share and contribute on the online discussion board; it's where a lot of the learning comes from. This course has a money-back guarantee; if you finish it and after a few months, you haven’t moved substantially towards your financial goals, we’ll refund you 100%.
After making several attempts to get my financial house in order over the last decade, I finally found what I needed to stick with it: a community of women that challenged me to look behind the numbers "curtain" and deconstruct the false beliefs about money that I've been carrying around for 30 years. -Lindsay
The experience was transformative in terms of making me feel in control of my financial choices and confident that I can make informed choices financially and learn in those areas I am uncertain about. There is less mystery to my money now and so less uncertainty and anxiety as well. Being in a group of like-minded women made me realize I'm not alone in my values and that was important affirmation that I needed to translate what I wanted to do into action. -Jordan
