Be Frugal, Be Free

I’m a different type of financial planner. I drive an older, small car. I don’t own a lot of fancy clothes. I don’t dye my hair or wear make-up. Why? This is how I chose to live. It makes me happy. I don’t expect you to make the same choices that I do. I’m not going to tell you how much to spend or on what. I just want you to spend your limited money on things that make you happy and healthy. Cut out all the rest.

What’s the point of spending less than you earn? It buys you freedom. It buys you choice. I don’t want any of you to feel trapped, like I have. I don’t want you to be stuck in a bad job or shitty relationship because of debt or lack of savings. I know it can feel impossible. But it’s not. Take back control of your own life!

Need support? That’s what I’m here for.

Here's a little more about me

I'm an independent fee-based financial planner and life and living benefits insurance broker. "Independent" means I work only for you, not some big bank or insurance company. I'm associated with several insurance companies, but I am not an employee of any of them.

I work around your busy schedule, so evening, weekend, and early morning appointments are available. My office is at 6932 Roper Road, but we can usually also meet at your workplace, home, or another location of your choosing.


I strongly recommend Your Life Money Coaching. Meena's work is simply fantastic. She took the time to really understand my situation and my goals, analyzed my various options in depth, and presented me with her findings in a clear, useful document. She responded to my follow-up questions and generally provided the very best service.

Thanks to the contents of the analysis provided by Your Life Money Coaching I have moved forward with a solid financial plan and the confidence to take reasonable risks. My financial future is more secure thanks to the information that Meena has provided.
