Greg Scott, Founder of The Financial Fit Club
After growing up in a poverty stricken environment I was determined to make a good income in my adulthood. I accomplished that after completing four years of education and climbing the corporate ladder. I felt that I had made it. I escaped my poverty stricken past and was now making a nice income but something was missing. I was drowning in debt; I had no savings, and I was living paycheck to paycheck. At that point I realized that it's not about how much you make it’s about how much you keep. I then sought out financial education everywhere. I attended every free financial class and seminar I could find and as a result I was able to build an emergency fund, get out of debt, stop living paycheck to paycheck, and build my credit score up to above an 800. Through that experience I was inspired to create a financial services company that actually cared for its clients and provided them education versus just selling products. Most financial services companies only care about you as far as they can sell you products like investments, bank accounts, credit cards, loans and insurance policies. They also want to give you technology and apps to solve your financial problems; however, something we know at the Financial Fit Club is that money is personal and people aren’t algorithms.
Anyone can put together a financial plan, but how many people actually follow it and stick with it?
99% of our clients achieve their financial goals and I truly believe that 100% of them would say that a large factor in their success is the accountability, support, and education they get from their financial trainer.
Technology is great for the DIY’er, but most of us need a human to turn to for financial guidance: Should I pay off my student loans or invest? How do I pay down my credit card debt? What should I do with my tax refund? How do I stop living paycheck to paycheck? How do I strategically build up my credit score?
When you come to the Financial Fit Club, you have my personal assurance that your financial trainer will not only have the knowledge and tools to help you achieve your financial goals, but your trainer will also care about you and your unique journey. You don’t have to solve your money challenges alone, we’re here for you. Now let’s get Financially Fit!
