Hi, I’m Kim Staudenraus, a Christian, Dave Ramsey Certified Money Management Coach, Certified Professional Coach and Endorsed 48-Days Coach. Someone who has made mistakes and continues to make mistakes while learning and growing both professionally and personally in my walk with Jesus Christ.
My belief is that mistakes help you grow, learn and succeed! Learning is an endless process. Anyone can be successful if they are willing to work toward improvement, are honest and focused on the right things. I firmly believe in the following statement:
Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.
Wake Up Call
In 1993, I was tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt and had nothing to show for it. I was making good money and was shocked when the bank told me my debt to income ratio was to high to buy my first home. At that moment I decided to start living below my means, pay off all my debt and live on a cash only basis, like I was taught to do while I was growing up.
In 1999 I was introduced to Dave Ramsey and even though I was raised to not be in debt, I sure had debt, yep one of those life mistakes I learned from. Dave provided a great reminder about the freedom of living a debt free life. At that time I still had a car loan, a few thousand dollars credit card debt and a mortgage and was able to pay all that off in six months.
100% Debt Free
Today I am living in total financial freedom…I am 100% debt free.
I had learned so much from my own incredible and difficult journey of becoming debt free that I wanted to share it and help others become debt free. I invested in training at the Lampo Group with Dave Ramsey and in 2006 became the first Dave Ramsey Certified Money Management Coach in the Central Florida area.
Money Management Coaching & Mentoring
In 2006 I founded Tranquility Financial Visioning, LLC to coach, teach and mentor people like you on how to become debt free, increase your income, improve your career, as well as properly balance work, life, and Christ.
Through the years I have become very familiar and well versed in life as a whole and have learned that money has an impact on all aspects of your life, from your job to your relationships, family, and the balance of them all. In addition to providing one-on-one coaching, I am your virtual mentor through the Life & Finances blog and the Life and Finances Youtube channel which is a natural extension of Tranquility Financial Visioning and focuses on topics that will help you deal with your money, job and family.
In addition, I am also a Certified Professional Life Coach, and write a coaching blog, Striving To Do Life Better which covers a wide range of life improvement and personal development topics. I believe we all have things to share and help others with in life and money, that we are all a coach to someone, that is why this site exists, to coach and mentor people like you who are looking to succeed in ALL areas of life.
So Many Deserve Credit
- In the financial realm, I credit Dave Ramsey for his large arena of information that is used and referenced in some of my posts, from his website, radio show and of course the training I received from him and his team and thank him for allowing me to share that information in addition to my own life and coaching experiences.
- In the career and business development realm, as an Endorsed 48-Days Coach, many thanks goes to Dan Miller for his support and education for a full and complete balanced life.
- Fowler Wainwright International for my training and certification as Certified Professional Coach
- In the realm of life experiences I credit so many who have touch me, especially my parents who taught me to always lean on Christ and look to HIM for all guidance, to my friends, employer of 23+ years, and my ex-husband.
All of these sources and more help me encourage, coach and mentor you through example on how to become a better person, improve your work environment, build a business and improve relationships.
Most Important Jesus Christ
However, my most important influence and focus is Jesus Christ. I strive every day to represent Him in His Glory and thank Him for my success.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters Colossians 3:23 NIV
Dealing with life experiences is something we all go through and living in financial freedom is a feeling that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy, a freedom that is far reaching from just the financial side. I am here to help you restore home and find financial freedom with as much accurate honest information as I can provide.
My goal is to help you the process of getting out of debt , manage money, improve your career, build successful businesses as well as the things that really matter in life, like family, friends and relationship with Christ. All through one-on-one coaching, my blogs, Youtube and speaking engagements.
With HIS help,
