Personal Finance Coaching Services
Get your finances in order with cash flow management
When you have made the decision to pay down debt, save money, invest money or make a major purchase, Money Measures can help in your journey. In order to make payments on debt and set money aside for investing or making a major purchase, the money needs to be in the bank to start with. Helping you see when the money will and won’t be in the bank is how Money Measures can help – including managing fluctuating income and expenses.
Our approach is to work with you to help you pick up financial literacy skills that set you up for a lifetime of success. Sometimes a budgeting app or tool just isn’t enough to get you where you need to be, especially if you have a financial situation that is “outside the box”, such as lumpy income from being self-employed or working in commissioned sales.
Whether you are trying to pay off long standing debts or working towards a specific goal such as purchasing your first home, Money Measures offers financial coaching services that can help you achieve your financial dreams. We go beyond the basics to remove the mystery from the numbers and help you understand the math.
About Elaine: Your Coach
Elaine Bechthold worked for over a decade in the financial services industry before using her experience to manage a large farm operation, including using her cash flow management techniques to purchase a second farm. Over the years, she has dealt with everything from business finances, farm finances, and arranging finances for relatives that she was a caregiver for. After a lifetime of professional and lived experience managing money, she has made a mission out of helping Canadians understand and work with their own finances.
Working with a community technology incubator, she developed the personal finance app, Money Measures, which incorporates her cash flow management technique and makes it easy for Canadians to budget, plan, and save for what they want. In addition to Money Measures, Elaine offers financial coaching services to give people the tools they need to get a real handle on their finances, no matter how complex their situation is.

How your coaching sessions will work
Your sessions will consist of one-on-one video or phone calls with Elaine. Unlike a financial planner or financial advisor, Elaine does not offer financial advice and will not try to sell you any investments. She may recommend the Money Measures app, but that is all and it is available at a low monthly cost – your coaching will not require it.
Elaine will teach you a cashflow management system that you can work with yourself on an ongoing basis with just a few hours of initial coaching – if you are a math whiz you may only need one session. Costs are reasonable and are made available when you get in touch – sign up today to find out more.
Coaching & Seminars Available for Groups
Businesses, groups, and organizations can get in touch by email to arrange “Lunch and Learn” and other seminars with Elaine which are customized to their needs.
Debt comes in all shapes and sizes. To us, debt reduction means getting you to include long and short-term debt payments into your budget so you can start conquering your debt. We want to set you up to not only eliminate debt, but stay out of debt. We do this by working with you to create a realistic plan to tackle your payments. Along the way, we help you by building financial literacy skills that allow you to see when spending decisions are in line with or contrary to your goals for eliminating debt.
Our financial coaching services allow you to start saving money more effectively so that you can break free and be truly financially independent. We work with you to create a realistic budget that allows you to maintain your regular living expenses while still being able to put money away for retirement, your first home, a new car, or whatever your goal may be. We do this by helping you identify essential and non-essential payments – a place to start when it comes to prioritizing spending.
Managing fluctuating income and expenses
It can be difficult to build an effective financial plan when you have fluctuating incomes and expenses, making your overall financial picture seemingly unpredictable. Our specialty is looking for opportunities to make the seemingly unpredictable predictable. These services are perfect for entrepreneurs, seasonal workers, farmers, salespeople, and agricultural workers who experience these unique challenges. We help you better navigate cash flow so you can overcome debt, save money, and become financially independent, even with fluctuating income and expenses.
Building financial literacy
Financial literacy is critical when it comes to weathering financial storms. Getting an understanding of what your essential and non-essential payments are is a great place to start.
