Hi, I’m Tim. I’m an author and Certified Financial Coach who knows a ton about personal finance. But I’m not settling for just teaching you money principles. I want to teach you how to take these principles, mold them to fit who you are, and build the life you want. I don’t like typical money advice. I’ve tried to fit into a mold by using typical money advice, and I had less control of my money and went further into unnecessary debt. Now, I live to teach you how to break the mold in your own life and find your version of financial freedom

Two Core Beliefs of
Atypical Finance

You Are Unique

You deserve to have the life you want. You deserve to have a money management method that is uniquely fit to who you are and where you want to go. Stop settling for typical money advice. You are atypical and unique and your money should reflect that.

Budgeting is the Root System

Budgeting is the root system of your financial tree. Your budget is used to supply and inform all other areas of personal finance from saving, to debt payoff, to retirement, and even your career. A budget helps you get to where you want to go faster and frees you to spend money on what you want. Simply put, if you feel restricted by your budget, you’re doing it wrong.
