Stemming from Friday’s episode which focused on the possibility of a recession, Farnoosh invites money coach Nicole Stanley to share her advice on how to manage the stress and anxiety around the volatility and uncertainty hanging over the stock market and economy. How to build confidence right now? How to re-examine your budget to feel more in control?
Nicole is the founder of Arise Financial Coaching, a company dedicated to helping professionals who have tried everything finally ditch debt, save more, and enjoy financial confidence. In five years, she went from battling financial anxiety to building her family’s net worth to over $250K on an annual salary of $56K. In 2020, after her husband became furloughed, Nicole officially started her coaching practice and became the sole breadwinner in her household. She speaks candidly about that pivot and the initial challenges.
Fun fact: The average Arise client saves $20K in six months without giving up the things they love. Nicole lives in Denver, CO with her husband and two children.
