About

Jose FigueroaHello, I am José Figueroa !

I am a Christian personal finance coach and blogger. I help families by teaching them how to get control of their money using biblical principles so they can dream again and have hope about their financial destiny.

My mission and passion is to help you win with your finances so you can be a blessing to your family and others. Is it possible? Yes!

I understand from personal experience that managing finances can be challenging and overwhelming.

But I know I can help you because I have gone through the process of learning to manage money successfully.

In a period of less than 2.5 years my wife Stacey and I:

  • Were able to pay-off almost $50K in consumer debt.
  • Save a 6-month emergency fund.
  • Were able to pay for our son’s college education without borrowing money.
  • Put together a structured plan for retirement.

More importantly, we are honoring God with everything He has entrusted to us. And that’s the biggest blessing.

I know I can help you and your family.
