We have answers to your questions

What is the Storing Treasures Mission and how can you impact people positively when it comes to their financial lives?

Our mission statement is “Discovering Your Financial Personality Inspires Progress”. This is at the crux behind who we are. Lets take a look at how we specifically thrive to help others:

DISCOVERING – At the heart of every change comes a moment where we uncover something new about ourselves. “You discover something that is already there, something that has existed but is generally unknown.” This initial discovery is the key to beginning the journey of understanding yourself and others in a completely new light.

YOUR FINANCIAL PERSONALITY – We are awash in “fixes” for our financial lives. The Internet gives us immediate access to financial tools; bookstore shelves are inundated with the latest book from successful money gurus; advice is just a radio click away for general information. All of this is positive. However, the one area that seems to be lost in all of this information is the main driver behind our financial decisions…..our behavior. I have been counseling families for over 20 years and I can personally attest that the most important factor to financial success is understanding and applying how we think and behave. By understanding our financial personality and those around us, we can begin to make decisions that work for us and our family….not for someone else.

INSPIRES PROGRESS – What is Progress? For most families, it means taking control of their financial lives. Lowering debt, increasing saving, reaching financial goals, improving communication, enhanced giving to others, etc. are all worthy pursuits that show we are making progress. But how do we know if we are making progress? What tangible expression of our hard work demonstrates our starting point and that progress is actually being made? We want to make sure you have a clear expression of your progress and reach the financial goals you set for yourself.

Understanding yourself and setting your unique roadmap is what Storing Treasures is all about!

How does Financial Personality help with long term financial success?

Programs on the market today tend to categorize ways to financial health as absolutes. In other words, a system must be followed one specific way for there to be success. Financial Personality allows you to determine your strengths and weaknesses (not to change you!) so you can stick with your plan for life.

Why did you name this new program STAFF?

STAFF has many meanings which fit perfectly the vision for this process.


  • An instrument used to aid in walking
  • A rule or graduated stick used for testing or measuring
  • The personnel who carry out a specific enterprise and support an organization
  • Something that serves as a staple or support

STAFF is meant to support others as they work towards financial freedom.

I see that STAFF is being promoted to organizations. What if I am not affiliated with an organization that is offering STAFF and want to complete on my own?

We have programs available for individuals and families as well. Please contact us and we can get you started on the STAFF journey.

What type of education and business experience do you offer?
