Here’s what I know.
You’re busy. Like, stupid busy. You’ve got your work, your family, and your life to manage. You do OK financially, but you sure aren’t saving like you thought you would. And shouldn’t you have less debt by now? And like…a college fund started?
Sure, you’ve got a system for your money. You've got a few different bank accounts and credit cards to keep things separate, at least one budgeting, saving, or investing app on your phone, and probably an old Excel spreadsheet somewhere...except none of that actually helped you feel in control of your money, did it?
You’ve definitely made some progress over the last few years. You’re not worried about getting the bills paid (at least not all the time), but you want to stop treading water. You’re sure there’s stuff you’re supposed to be doing, but who has time to deal with that stuff?
Ooh! I do! Pick me! Pick me!

Here are a few ways we can work together:
DIY type? Let’s do a Power Hour (and a half).
One of my absolute favorite ways to work with someone is with a Power Hour (and a half). It’s a 90-minute meeting where I ask you a bunch of questions, you answer them, and then I tell you what to do. BAM. Doesn’t that sound refreshing? Like plugging in an address into your Maps app and it just like, tells you where to turn first, and then what happens, and then what you do after that. I can draw you that map (and then you drive. That's where the DIY comes in).
And if after our Power Hour (and a half) you are like “cool…but what if there’s a detour?” – I’m all over that too. My ongoing support is super popular for a reason: there’s unlimited access directly to me via email, plus monthly 30-minute catch up sessions. This is a great way to make sure you stay on track and have a place to ask questions and handle things like a goddamn pro if something changes (which is practically guaranteed in this business we call life).
$197 USD for Power Hour (and a half).
"the impact you have had has given me my family."
I'm SO glad we connected! I truly have a relationship with money I didn't even know was possible. Thank you. Next month, we're going to celebrate our anniversary by staying overnight, by ourselves! at a local resort. Before working with you, I would have pulled out the credit card, *hoped* I had enough money to cover it, did it anyway, and then spent SO much energy *wondering* if I should have done it, before, during and after this "nice" thing I planned for us. Now, we're just going -- it's in the budget! And, the *experience* that brings me, and my whole family, is incredibly moving: I get to just be with my family and have fun, instead of being with my wondering about money. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You gave me tools, yes, but the impact you have had has given me my family. It's the most important thing. *happy tears* -Laurie J.
Want a little more help? Let’s work on your foundation
A Foundation Package gets you a customized money map, just like the one I talk about above in the Power Hour (and a half), PLUS then I'll hop in the passenger seat with you and give you turn-by-turn directions, real-time detour updates, and pleasant company as you get up and running the right way. No, you may not call me Tom Tom (that's extra).
This is perfect if you're more of a dreamer than a do-er (Hi! My name is Lynne and I'm a planning-but-not-doing addict). We'll hop on my private conference line and share screens so everything will be in real time and I'll be with you for every step.
- Unlimited email support between our sessions
- 90 minute initial meeting, followed by two one-hour meetings and a send-you-on-your-way 30 minute wrap up meeting before I release you into the wild
- We'll meet every few weeks over the course of 2-3 months (depending on scheduling).
$197/mo for 3 months, OR $497 paid up front (16% discount).
Ongoing support is available here too as an add-on. We’ll discuss when we’re getting close to wrapping up whether it’s right for you!
"the warmest heart."
Lynne is at once grounded in practical, technical advice on budgeting, with the warmest heart, which is the more important piece for those of us who feel a lot of shame or resignation about the state of our financial lives. -Katie G
Want to go deeper? I'll take you from panic to peace
From Panic to Peace is customized just for you and your goals and current financial (and emotional) state. This longer-term, specialized package is perfect if you want to work on deeper issues surrounding your money, know that you do well with lots of coaching and accountability check-ins, and are ready to invest in a stronger, more positive, sustainable relationship with your money.
Starting at $897
PSST. Hey you, business owners
Are you looking at this and thinking “cool, but what about my business? That’s where the money mess really is!” OOH have I got you covered. In fact, I absolutely LOVE working with business owners to manage their cash flow confusion, cover their asses come tax-time, and make sure they’re spending enough on the things that matter (Paying yourself! Taxes! Insurance!) and just enough on everything else. You’ve got two basic options (or you can do one of the above):
Taking Care of Business
TCB is a monthly retainer program wherein I do allllll the bookkeeping for your service-based business, work with your tax preparer come January, PLUS meet with you regularly to answer your questions about things like “am I doing OK?” and “can I afford X”?, and generally help you increase the consistency in your business finances and ease your worries. Includes unlimited direct email access to me and general feelings of peace and happiness. Your CPA will cry tears of joy when you start working with me, and so will your business-owner friend who you keep emailing with questions like “how exactly am I supposed to pay myself? And where am I supposed to put my receipts?”
Starting at $500 USD/mo
"Lynne has magically been able to make sense of it all."
My finances were complicated and overwhelming to me. I have many transactions across multiple businesses. For a long time, I had no idea if I was in the black or red and my yearly tax situation was a total disaster. Lynne has magically been able to make sense of it all and been integral with figuring out how I'm doing financially with my business and personal finances. I am now able to accurately see my spending and income, and she has trained me to be more mindful in all areas of my business. I've been paying off my credit card debt and have started paying monthly taxes, so there are no surprises at the end of the year. - Michael Riscica, YoungArchitect.com
Just the books, please
Just the books is just what it sounds like – bookkeeping and tax document preparation (only). The information you need, when you need it, so you can make decisions and not lose sleep about your business books again.
Starting at $150 USD/mo for weekly updates.
