My Financial Struggles and Success
My name is Jared Lyman and I understand that money is more than just numbers. Life comes at us and there are expenses we have to pay for. At the same time our income is generally fixed, and often we end up thinking there is never enough. We become scared or fearful or shamed.
I’ve worked in banking for over 20 years. I’ve reviewed thousands of personal financial statements and I understand what’s needed to eliminate debt.
Shortly after graduating college I created a simple “budget” to pay off my debt. I quickly realized it was going to take me 20 years to get out of debt, even with extreme cut-backs. I would never be able to save for a down payment on a house! I was overwhelmed and with all the negative and self-defeating thoughts I gave up and kept on living outside my means.
A few years later I discovered a much better way to track my expenses. More importantly, I learned to approach money with an abundant mindset, not sheer willpower, which rarely lasts and is never enjoyable. This change in thinking has helped me live within my budget for the past 14 years, pay off all my debt (except for my mortgage) and purchase a nice home. I can help you do the same.
Why Choose Me
Working through my own budget helped me I understand the fear, despair and shame that comes along with debt and how to overcome these challenges. I understand sheer willpower is not enough.
I will help you create a plan to eliminate your family’s debt.
Think of it along the lines of a diet. Back in the 80’s diets we were all about reducing calories through will power. Then we learned that by understanding our mindset we could move past sheer will to better control our urges.
It’s the same with money. Rather than focus on what we can’t have we can focus on what we truly need and want. Eliminating purchases we don’t really want naturally reduces our expenses, increases our net income, and allows us to live a lifestyle we truly enjoy.
As a banker I learned that more money does not mean an easier life. I’ve seen those with a net worth in excess of $50 million who didn’t qualify for a loan. I’ve watched as others with incomes in excess of $1 million had to declare bankruptcy.
I’ve also had the privilege of helping others who “don’t know anything about money” but realize their finances are “in a mess” to live the lifestyle they want, pay off their debt and save for the future.
Family is the Most Important
I understand that for many parents debt is a large hurdle in their life and marriage. I see a lot of parents protecting their children from large financial burdens but at the same time not being able to provide everything they want for them. I use my personal experiences and my financial knowledge to help parents pay off their debt so they can focus on other matters.
My goal is to help families live debt free and obtain the mental skills to live an enjoyable, financially abundant life.
Get Permanent Financial Results
As we work together, you’ll begin paying off your creditors and begin to notice that money is not a dominant factor of your daily life. You’ll have the means to pay your monthly bills, go to the grocery store, the movie or out to dinner, all without worrying if you can afford it.
Once living on the plan becomes automatic you won’t even notice as pay days come and go. At the same time your savings will begin to grow.
