+ What's the difference between a Financial Coach and a Financial Advisor?
A financial advisor is a person who holds professional licenses and is qualified to give specific financial advice for compensation. A financial coach, while very similar, does not necessarily hold financial licenses and, if not, is not qualified to give specific financial advice ("buy this specific investment/product", etc).
The benefits, however, of a financial coach are many.
One of the biggest benefits and differences is that financial coaches do not give advice, suggest products/services/investments/etc and then get paid based on those recommendations. For some, this model (getting paid based on advice they give) can cause some concern about whether or not the advice is truly in the client's best interests or not.
A financial coach's role, then, is much like that of a Chief Financial Officer. Their duty is to ensure that the primary financial needs of an individual or family are being properly managed and they help hold accountable those who give specific financial advice. A financial coach helps clients ask the right questions of their advisors (and of themselves) and empowers them to take control of their financial lives and act as Christian stewards and managers of all that God has entrusted to them.
A Christian financial coach, in particular, will help to provide spiritual accountability as well and will "wave a red flag" when the advice received from others seems out of line or out of sync with core values, needs, and goals.
NJW financial coaches, then, partner with you to help you understand what you want, value, and need and provide the accountability you need to help you do the things you need to do.
+ Is there a money-back guarantee?
There is! Our One-on-One Coaching Program provides a money-back guarantee that we call our "Worry Free Guarantee".
The One-on-One program is made up of 4 different meetings over the course of 6 months. However, at the end of meeting #1 (The Spotlight Process Meeting), we will discuss whether or not you (and/or your coach) feel that this is the right program for you. If either you or your coach feels that it is not a good fit FOR ANY REASON AT ALL- then you will receive a 100%, full refund - no questions asked! If you decide that it's not for you, then you've got nothing to lose!

+ What if we are not Christians? Will this program work for us?
The NJW Christian Financial Coaching program is unashamedly Christian and biblically based. However, we believe that all truth is God's truth - whether people recognize where it comes from or not.
Because of this, we believe that God's way of handling and viewing money will benefit and work for ALL PEOPLE because His way is right, true, and effective for all who practice His principles.
We invite you to explore what biblical financial stewardship is all about and hope that it would lead you to discover the One who oversees and provides for it all. As Jesus has said in His own words, "Come and see!".

+ What happens after the inital 6-months are over in the 1-on-1 Coaching?
At the end of the initial 1-on-1 Coaching program, you will have the option to continue working long-term with your coach.
Just like you do with an Attorney or CPA (or many other professionals), having a Financial Coach in your corner year-round is exactly what some Christian families are looking for.
After making so much progress in the first six months, you know how important it is to stay focused and accountable for the long-term. Having access to professional help when you need it is incredibly beneficial if you want to maximize the potential of faithfully stewarding all that God has entrusted to you and hearing Him say, "Well done!".
Our Long-Term Coaching program is based on a year-to-year agreement based on a discounted rate (save $500 off the 1-on-1 Coaching price) and gives you the following:
2 semi-annual meetings to help you stay the course, determine next steps, and continue to reach your long-term goals and plans.
Get year-round access via phone/text/email to your coach to ask questions, get advice or connect to discuss any financial concerns that you may have.
We will discuss whether or not you feel this is a good option for you at the final meeting of our initial 1-on-1 Coaching program.
