Money matters are difficult to reign for most people. Saving nowadays is such a hard feat, with prices of essential items steadily increasing, including other financial responsibilities like paying off debt. Likewise, earning a decent income is not always an easy thing to do during a worldwide pandemic. Alaina Fingal experienced this predicament as well, and that’s what inspired her to create The Organized Money.
No matter what budget method Alanna tried on herself, she always ended up failing and not making her budget work for her. Alaina thought something in her was broken until she realized that money management was more than just math.
There are many aspects that need to be factored in, but the bottom line is that money management is mostly behavior. Alaina realized that if personal finance was 80 percent behavior, then it would be impossible to handle money until people knew more about themselves accurately.
This epiphany led Alaina to create The Organized Money, a digital repository of helpful resources that are all about wealth-building through organizing money matters. The company’s mission is to help people achieve financial peace through life organization. They believe managing money starts with personal habits. Once these habits are redirected or fixed, people can attain financial freedom.
The company’s general approach is broken down into three areas: getting organized through paper planners, managing money, and monetizing what their clients know. They analyze their client’s personality and tendencies, habits, routines, and lifestyle so the company can develop a personalized money routine and budget plan that will work for their clients.
While there are basic sets of money principles that apply to everyone equally, the company understands that there are a hundred different ways to obtain the same result. Instead of the cookie-cutter financial advice easily thrown around, each client is given a unique approach, specially catered to their lives.
Alaina and her team also share her relaxed approach to finances through the videos she uploads on her YouTube channel, which has amassed over 30,000 subscribers and 2 million views.
As an accountant, certified financial coach, author, and content creator, Alaina is more than equipped to lend a helping hand to people who need to organize their life so they have room to manage and make more income. Practicing what she preaches, Alaina now has over six streams of income and earns money even while she sleeps, after a few years. She has also paid off over $25,000 in debt.
Through Alaina’s impact as the CEO of her company and an entrepreneur, she is changing the shape and momentum of businesses that are owned and operated by women across the country. HuffPost recognized her works and efforts and featured her as one of the “The Budget Pros of Instagram.” She was also featured in the Emma app as among the “Top 50 Personal Finance Youtubers in the United States.”
Now, Alaina wants to pass her knowledge on and teach others who are willing to get financially organized so they can achieve the life of their dreams.
Not many financial coaches factor in using life organization and habits to change the people’s perspective about money. For Alaina, however, being self-aware is one of the best ways to financial freedom.
