LIGHT CYAN (#E1fAF9).jpg


You never know how much you can spend, so even buying a cup of coffee gives you a ping of fear and makes you ask yourself, “Should I be spending my money on this?”

You search online for answers, only to feel overwhelmed and confused . From IRAs to investing, budgets to brokerage accounts, there’s so much, you have no idea where to even start.

You aren’t confident in your decisions so you don’t make any decisions at all. And not making any decisions adds to your lack of confidence.

Dealing with your financial life feels like whack-a-mole. There’s no rhyme or reason to your approach, you just try to deal with whatever pops up.

After years of struggling with failing at budgeting, falling short in savings and putting off investing, you’re finally ready to make a concrete plan to stop falling behind and finally get ahead. With the right resources and tools to get you going in the right direction, you don’t have to constantly struggle.


Imagine feeling

like you’re someone who is

good with their money


Imagine what you’ll feel like after you’ve organized your personal financial life.

You have a clear picture of where you are and where you want to go. You know how much you should be saving, you know that you’ve set aside time to focus on your finances, you have a plan to pay down debt and you really care about your financial life.

  • All of a sudden you can buy something for yourself and you don’t second-guess if you’re spending money you should be saving.

  • You have investments; money that you’re investing for your future self and your family.

  • You have a positive relationship with money. You’re grateful for it, you use it as a tool and it is not a source of pain, fear and drama.


Even though you’re stoked to feel in control of your finances, you probably have some questions…


FACING YOUR Personal finances can be tough.


There can be a lot of emotions - blame, shame and guilt - about where you should be.

It’s easy to resign yourself to the thought that, “people like me don’t know how to deal with money.”

Without guidance it’s difficult to put energy into something you feel like you can’t change.

i feel you.

And that’s why I created

"Paco is killer at being able to talk about money in a tangible way. She speaks truth into money, makes it less scary and more appealing to want to dive in and resolve instead of avoiding. She creates an environment where it's safe to talk about money, how to make it and more importantly, how to keep it. Her approach is unique, authentic and straight-forward. No fluff, no bullsh*t information, just straight up knowledge and opportunity to implement shifts and changes in your personal or professional finances."

here’s why this course is different

Not a snooze fest We realized that most finance stuff is drier than a sand sandwich, so we went out of our way to try to make it fun with a heavy helping of dad jokes, a teacher that has been called the "Jon Stewart of finance”and enough analogies to make your high school literature teacher tear up with pride and joy.

We make money approachable AF There is no unnecessary jargon; if you want that turn on CNBC. All the financial concepts are broken down to the granular level so they’re so easy to digest. No more pretending to understand things because you’ll actually just understand it.

Accountabili-buddies Get support, energy and feedback from the community. Make new financial friends.


“I’m very, very good at ignoring what’s going on with my money, but Paco’s course allowed me to take a realistic look at how I earn and spend money in an accessible and warm way. She offered straightforward advice and outlined excellent tools for getting my finances in line, making me feel more in charge of my money future.”

I know, i know - You think people like you just aren’t good with their money

Being good with your money and getting your financial life in order isn’t something people are just born with. Sure, some people might naturally be better than others, but everything about finances and money can be learned. So much of your financial success is consistency, showing up and setting up the systems we’ll teach you.


You can’t afford not to invest in yourself.

Everyday that you run away from getting your financial life in order, you’re missing out on building your financial future. Stop digging yourself deeper into debt, losing out on investment earnings and having an unorganized crap pile of a financial life. You literally have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Hi I'm Paco.png


I’m Paco.

I help people get their money right so they can stop freaking out and start focusing on what matters. I’ve taught this course to hundreds of people around the world.

When I was a financial planner, I realized all the important financial information is given behind closed doors and only available to the people who can afford to have access. One major flaw in the business model is that the people who need the most help are the ones can’t afford it; so they’re ignored by the financial services industry.

I wanted to create something that was artful and informative; something that could change the way people saw the financial world and their place in it; something that would inspire and excite and give anyone, no matter how much money they make, a way to find some peace and some power in their life.
