Melissa the Coach started because of my own story – I am living proof that what I learned and what I teach WORKS! I am thankful for the people who choose me to help them.
RESULTS: We paid off $43,544 of consumer debt in less than three years and have STAYED debt-free since then! THIS is why I do what I do – to bring hope to others.
Everything I teach is either from my own personal education of reading books, blogs, listening to podcasts, and learning from other financial coaches as well as my own experience or the experience of helping people through coaching.
It’s NOT theory. It’s proven actionable steps that produce results.
Coaching is financial problem solving for short and long term goals.
“Debt hanging over you feels like strangling. And being debt-free feels so good. Thanks for being a teacher to so many and an encourager to me.” Amy
“Our fridge died last night. Thank God for savings!” (text message from a client)
“I would also suggest connecting up with Melissa for some business financial planning. I use her service often. Melissa does way more than just say don’t spend money here but spend it there, she has you figure out your financial plan from top to bottom including how much you charge etc. As her client, she also holds you responsible! Oh, she has a killer story too!”

Thank you so much for our meeting this morning, Melissa Thomas!!!! People. You need her in your life. She’s the best. Christen Weaver
“I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the holiday season ? I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you again. To see how this year is ending vs how last year ended is truly unbelievable. We’ve knocked out so many debts, we have a solid emergency fund for both personal and my business, we are renting out our house in Kansas while it’s on the market and saving the rent money in a separate account just to cover expenses on that house if something were to happen or the renters move out, and today I made a deposit into my business account from the past week that was bigger than what I made all month at my full-time job. I’m SO excited to start the new year heading in the right direction and I know we never would have gotten this far without your help! I don’t get to join in on much of your facebook stuff anymore because I’m so busy between the two jobs, but I do still try to go back and read/watch your posts when I can. I’m hoping once Travis gets back from deployment we can start some coaching sessions with you again to learn more about the “investing” part of things since our debt should be pretty close to paid off. Have a Merry Christmas!!!!” Ashley Butts

Melissa has been instrumental in leading people to understand how to improve their financial concerns. Her down to earth understanding of how to teach you to go from monetary stress to financial freedom is easy to follow. You can be successful at making decisions that will help you become good money managers. You will not meet anyone more passionate about helping people become more aware of their money situation. Melissa is totally confidential.

Melissa made it so simple and easy to do. She helped us separate our business from our personal. We now pay ourselves regularly and are crossing off those monthly payments on our “Debt Snowball” schedule. Love having money in our checking accounts!

I LOVED our budget class. I have never created a zero balance budget, and I just finished mine for April. I’m a little nervous that all of my money is assigned to a line item, but I’m excited because I see where my money is going…and we are living on our budget! I’m looking forward to being debt free, thanks to Melissa’s advice and teaching. I highly recommend taking the time to learn how to manage your money.
Amy Campbell — 5 star Melissa’s straight-forward, no-nonsense approach appeals to me on many levels. First, she asks great questions and then is a terrific listener and when she replies I know she really understands what I need. I feel confident that I too can grow in my finance skills with Melissa’s guidance, coaching, and patience!
Holly Bussell Powell — 5 star Melissa sat down with me and made us realize that we needed to tighten up our budget. While we’re still working toward that end – her advice has been invaluable and I appreciate her willingness to go above and beyond to help folks get their finances straight.
Jessica Vargas Mote — 5 star Before we met with Melissa, my husband and I were sure that she was going to tell us that we needed to take big drastic steps to get on the right path. We were pretty sure we weren’t going to find our answers. One meeting later, we felt relieved and refreshed and could see the logic. We wrote out our budgets and got to work. When we stumbled and stopped using the budget, we felt that difference in our family’s happiness; we went from managing to struggling, which takes you from light-hearted to stressed. So we found our way back because Melissa didn’t just give us a budget, she taught us how to prioritize and create our layout. We are thankful EVERYDAY for her work!
Juliann Rager — 5 star Melissa’s dedication to seeing people improve their lives through kind and considerate financial planning and “mess sort” is amazing!!
