EMPOWERING You Break the Cycle in Your Life to Find Your Purpose and to LIVE in Financial Freedom

Design & Renew Tribe

What does being a member of the  Design & Renew Tribe mean?

It means that you are part of a community of people that are all trying to find their purpose and seeking financial freedom. You are on a journey to better yourself, your finances, and those around you. Being a member of our tribe means you are going to get the support, education, success, and exclusivity that you want and need! We offer multiple options to fit your needs, your budget, and your lifestyle!

Financial Coaching

Almost 80% of our population lives paycheck to paycheck causing stress, frustration, lost sleep, damaged relationships, and hopelessness. We know that most people don’t choose this lifestyle, but instead, it is the way they view money. As someone who has been in your shoes, struggled with living paycheck to paycheck, maxed out credit cards, took out student loans, I know the frustration and stress that you feel. Now, as a coach we act as a counselor for you and your money, helping you change your money mindset, therefore repairing your relationship with money. Through education, support, and coaching we help you get hope back into your finances and your life so that you can have the financial freedom you’ve always wanted!

High School Coaching

Over 55% of students don’t know what they want to do after high school, or how to get there. And only 45% feel college or career ready. And with average costs of bachelor’s degrees exceeding $100,000 and the national student debt over $1.4 trillion many of it going into default, something must change. We know firsthand the weight of student debt, the struggles with finding the right career when there are so many to choose from. We want your teen to know what career path is best for them before leaving high school. To know how to get to that career with no debt. And how to manage their finances so they can enjoy life today, but also be prepared for the future to leave a strong legacy for their children.

This is a good place for you if

  • You’re tired of living paycheck to paycheck

  • You’re overwhelmed by debt

  • You’re having struggles in your marriage due to your finances

  • Money stress is starting to take a toll on your mental or physical health

  • You aren’t stressed about money, but you know there is more you can learn

  • You want to be more educated on using money and planning for your future

  • You have been recently divorced or widowed and find yourself in an entirely new place in life and are struggling to get your finances back on track

OR you have a high school student who is:

  • Feeling unprepared for life after high school

  • Not clear on the best career path for them

  • Unsure if college is the best fit

  • Overwhelmed with the college process including finding the best school, admissions, financial aid, etc.

  • Looking for help/guidance on the scholarship process in order to get a debt-free degree 

Don't just take our word for it...

"Traci is extremely knowledgable about personal finance and improved my budget a great deal. I was specifically interested in paying off debt and not only did she give me resources and help me make a plan, but she made it very personal by sharing her own experiences, struggles, and triumphs of her personal finance journey. I think everyone should place a high priority on personal finance and I highly recommend Traci as your coach!"
