Hi, I’m Barbara, writer of Tipped and owner and coach for Tipped Finance. Maybe you want to start preparing for retirement, maybe you want some accountability in meeting your savings goals, maybe you are sorting through all of life’s financial demands and need to bounce your ideas off of someone who understands.
I built a career in the Service Industry and throughout that time I made every financial mistake possible. I’m not a Stock Broker or Certified Financial Advisor, however I know what it’s like to live on a tipped income and dig out from under my own mistakes. I also know what it looks like to build real wealth and get very good with money. It doesn’t need to be complicated but it does require stick-to-it-ness. If that is where you struggle and you need someone in your corner, cheering you on, and helping you sort through the noise then schedule a coaching call with me and let’s get started.
“As I logged hundreds of hours of listening and reading, deep diving the world of personal finance, I kept coming across the same advice for corporate 9-5ers being doled out time and time again. Listeners or readers would write in, guests would come on, and the same information was recycled and the same jargon extensively used. I heard questions like how to ask for a raise, advice on talking to your HR rep about your 401k option, tips on how millennials should cut out their daily latte, and questions like how to ask your parents for help with your six figure student loans.”
At no point did I see myself in any of the readers or listeners’ questions, at no point did the guests offer actionable advice for someone like me, someone who had a career in the service industry. At no point did a financial advisor ever give me their card and ask to sit down with me to discuss my investment strategy. Personal finance is personal, but in a space as large as this one, why wasn’t I seeing any persons like me? As people we connect to the stories of other, and we do better when we understand what is possible in the context of our own worlds.
Tipped, is my response to this void in the personal finance space – because your career is real, your money is real, and your future is real. Let’s plan for a better one together!
