Biographical Info

My name is Francesca Vanderwall and I am in a long-term, complicated relationship with money.

When I was 3 years old, I knew about interest. When I was 13 years old, I learned how privately my mom struggled with money. When I was 21 years old, I started managing my own investment portfolio. When I was 25 years old, I got through my wedding workouts by listening to the Suze Orman podcast. And now that I'm (redacted) years old, I've devoted myself to helping others develop a healthy relationship with money. Sometimes we talk numbers; sometimes we talk feelings. Both have a role to play.

Lots of personal finance resources focus on things like how to use insurance, Roth IRAs vs Traditional IRAs, and 401(k)s. These are all tactics. However, tactics are just tools. They don't mean anything until you put them in a bigger context. That's why you need strategy. Because strategy allows you to combine various tactics into a winning formula. Mistakes cost money. Uneducated choices cost money. Doing it yourself costs both time and money. And that's where I come in.
