Chris Fohlin

Advice-only financial coaching for individuals, families, and small businesses.

Chris Fohlin is a financial coach who works with individuals and small businesses. He works with clients to build financial security, eliminate and avoid debt, and build wealth on the path to achieving financial and life goals.

Operating on an advice-only model, Chris will educate, inform, and recommend steps for you to take on your financial journey. Advisors who collect commission by recommending certain products can lead to a conflict of interest between the most lucrative product for the advisor versus what a client truly needs. Fee-only advisors may charge a percentage based on how much money you invest with them. This fee is a never-ending annual expense that significantly reduces the potential of your money to grow over time.


“Everything we do in life — from enjoying life to working Monday through Friday — ties back to money and how we manage it. It’s one of the most important topics throughout our lives and yet we discuss it the least. Maybe we are fortunate to have learned good financial lessons from our family, or maybe we were passed bad advice. My goal is to teach others the ins and outs of successfully managing their own money. Working together, we’ll make sure we’re ready for unexpected events, eliminate debt, fund goals like buying a home or saving for college, and build wealth that will carry you through retirement. You’ll learn what it feels like to be in control of your money rather than the other way around.”
