Want to grow your income, get your finances in great shape, and achieve your most important goals – without burnout, guesswork, or overwhelm?

And without having to figure it all out by yourself?

Welcome to the Financial Freedom Accelerator Program!

A comprehensive, in-depth, year-long program to help you take your finances and your life to the next level.

In the Financial Freedom Accelerator Program you will learn how to take charge of your money and heal your relationship with money to create better options, gain peace of mind, achieve your goals more quickly, and build a life you love even if you …

  • lack confidence

  • don’t have effective systems in place

  • and financial freedom, or even ease, feels out of reach.

Go from having no holistic plan, feeling stuck, and not knowing where to start …

                         … to having clarity about your goals, a values-based system in place, the confidence

                             to make the best use of your dollars, and a growing net worth.

You’ll get experienced guidance every step of the way, plus you’ll learn with a small group of like-minded women.

"After only the first 6 months in the FFA Program, I was in disbelief. I knew this journey would be transformative, but I didn’t imagine this!"

- Diane S

Hi, I’m Doris.

I created this program to provide the tools, guidance, and support I wish I’d had decades ago when I was trying to get to a better place with my finances.

I knew that I wanted financial security, first and foremost. I also wanted more for myself, but I had no clue how to make that happen.

If this program had existed back then, it would have been a game-changer.

I would literally have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars and I would have enjoyed so much more of my life,

         with far less financial stress,

                   if I’d had a knowledgeable guide and a proven system to follow.

I would also have made soooooo many different choices as I built my business and grew my net worth.

 

Now you can bypass years of frustration, wasted money, and lost opportunities

to create a rock-solid, holistic financial system that makes and saves you money within

one year, with support and guidance every step of the way.

The program is offered in a safe, No Shame, No Blame, No Judgement environment where there is no such thing as a “stupid question”.

In the Financial Freedom Accelerator ProgramI teach you how to achieve money mastery first, and then Financial Freedom – one practical, doable step at a time with me guiding you the entire way.

In the process, you’ll build skills and confidence that will benefit you for a lifetime.

"WOW! I received so much from our time together. I've gotten way more in touch with what I want. I've valued that at a higher level, and taken significant steps to achieving my goals. Made big [financial and life decisions] - all to see/free up possibilities for what I really want, and to better support myself in creating a new business that is fulfilling and meaningful to ME. I'm already recommending this course and your coaching to other women!"

The Real F-Bombs for Women

Have you ever experienced this:

You look at your finances and you’re concerned that you’re behind.

At your age, you worry that you should be further ahead, to give yourself better options today and to live well in the future.

You want to make more, save more, choose smarter investments, and make better use of your money.

And you want to stop having to work so hard for it all.

But where do you start?

Do you start a side gig? {What would you do?}

A full-on business? {That seems so risky!}

Grow an existing business? {The thought of working even harder makes you cringe.}

Ask for a raise? {Cue the fear response.}

Still, you’re determined so you dig in.

➡️ You read multiple books on budgeting and growing your income.

➡️ You digest so many podcasts you can’t even remember their titles.

➡️ You create spreadsheets and download apps.

You try everything

           … and yet it still feels like your “system” is a series of random parts duct-taped together.

You’ve tried so many things and you’ve definitely made some strides forward, but holy Hannah it’s hard!

And nothing works for long or as much as you’d like it to.

It’s like you’re spinning your wheels, stuck in some sort of pattern you can’t quite put your finger on.

😤 It’s all so FRUSTRATING.

When money starts to accumulate in your savings account, you worry that it’s not doing enough for you.

Then there’s the endless to-do list of things you know you should be doing, but you keep ignoring.

⚠️ That pile of investment statements you mean to look at and deal with, but never do.

⚠️ The credit card and line of credit debt you intend to tackle, but you’re not sure how.

⚠️ The money you intend to save, which somehow disappears before the end of the month.

⚠️ The extra income you want to generate – some day, somehow.

Five years go by and you’re still facing the same challenges and you still feel overwhelmed.

😨 And that’s when FEAR sets in.

What if it’s too late?

Will you ever feel in control?

Will you ever get to a place of ease?

If you’ve experienced any of these feelings, you are not alone.

I know these F-Bombs – Frustration and Fear – intimately. I’ve felt them at a deep level, particularly in the early years of my financial “education”.

Since that awful day many years ago when I became a widow and inherited $400,000 of debt (you can read my story in my book, Protect Your Purse), I’ve worked with, and talked to, thousands of women who struggle with the same frustrations, blocks, and fears.

✨ Thankfully, there is a clear path out of frustration and fear. ✨

And the good news is that it works for everyone.

"I'm so glad to be part of this cohort and so very grateful for the opportunity to learn with Doris. My life is changing before my eyes."

The Financial Freedom Accelerator Program

The Financial Freedom Accelerator is a comprehensive program that helps you create a complete financial system and provides clear actions steps to get you to your big, beautiful goals with twelve months of in-depth coaching, connection, and guidance.

No more guesswork.

No more confusion about where to start and what to do.

It’s all laid out in a comprehensive plan, supported by live online teaching Retreats, recorded lessons, private coaching, group coaching, and all the tools you’ll need to succeed.

Because of the high degree of personalized guidance and feedback that I offer in this program, I am limiting enrollment to a maximum of 10 women.

This will help you connect more deeply with your fellow participants (all women) and build friendships as well as a strong community of support.

 

Months 1 to 6:

The first half of the program is designed to take someone from having no money systems and no knowledge of personal finance through the process of:

  • creating a healthy money mindset – the power behind their financial system
  • clarifying your core values
  • identifying meaningful goals
  • building a simple, values-based financial system that optimizes the use of your money
  • dealing with any existing challenges, like debt, no savings, or persistent money blocks
  • understanding how to set up your personal versus business finances if you run a business
  • optimizing your finances and your skills to increase your savings and grow your income

 

Months 7 to 12:

In the latter half of the Financial Freedom Accelerator Program, I teach you how to:

  • invest your money using an evidence-based approach, even if the thought of investing terrifies you and you don’t know the first thing about it
  • build winning behavioral habits based on lessons from Behavioral Economics
  • understand which protective documents you need and how to put them in place
  • learn the fundamentals of negotiation and practice them with guidance
  • seamlessly integrate all parts of your money system to make the highest, best use of your dollars and save thousands every year
  • grow your business income or create an additional source of income through a side gig
  • create a Financial Blueprint for 2023

 

Throughout the FFA Program, you get access to my premium courses:

  1. Master Your Mindset
  2. Take Charge of Your Money
  3. Investing Made Simple 4.0

 

You will also receive a reading list of 3 books carefully selected by me to help you make faster progress. We will analyze and implement the ideas from these books throughout the program.

The program starts on Monday, September 12th.

See below for the full schedule.

Are you eager to get going before then? No problem – I’ve got you covered!

You’ll get access to all my premium courses as soon as your register.

"This group and my other women’s group is the first time in my life that I’ve had a group of women, friends, partners, in my life that have supported me in this way - believing in me so fiercely that it’s changed what I believe about myself. It's literally magic!"

- Diane S

By the end of the Financial Freedom Accelerator Program ...

You’ll:

  1. Have healthier finances and a healthier relationship with money.
  2. Have an A to Z plan to keep growing your finances.
  3. Be making more money in your business or a side gig.
  4. Make the best use of your money. Everything from spending to savings to your investments will be congruent with your goals.
  5. Have the best rates possible for insurance, mortgage, and loan payments because you will have negotiated them yourself – with confidence.
  6. Know your financial independence number and understand your risk profile.
  7. Understand what research has to say about an investing approach that works versus popular methods of investing that won’t serve you well.
  8. Have the right accounts for you.
  9. Have an investment portfolio – even if you’re in debt to begin with.
  10. Feel confident about your finances and your future.
  11. Have new friends who are there to cheer you on and help you get past hurdles.
  12. Be saving thousands of dollars by avoiding unnecessary fees and renegotiating key aspects of your finances which yield big wins.
  13. Have experienced a mindset shift, with a solid mindset practice in place. 
  14. Feel the joy, pride, and satisfaction that comes from knowing that you are building the most important element of a financial system – a strong belief in yourself.
  15. Be on track to live your highest, best life.

"I loved the private coaching sessions. Every single time I felt I was advancing and overcoming an obstacle I could not have resolved on my own. Sometimes simply talking to Doris and airing out my "blind spots" was all I needed to move along. I sometimes started the session with apprehension as to what I did not want to hear, but I was also always grateful and relieved by Doris' words and advice. "

The Challenge of Doing It Yourself

    • It’s hard to know where to start and what to do.
    • It’s lonely figuring it all out by yourself.
    • Working your way through all the books and online materials is overwhelming.
    • It takes forever to sort it all out on your own. And who has a pile of extra time on their hands?
    • When something doesn’t work, how do you figure out what the problem is?
    • Let’s face it, between procrastinating and life’s distractions, it’s easy to get off track. Before you know it, years go by and you still haven’t achieved some of your important goals.
    • Mistakes can be costly. You don’t want to waste money trying an approach that won’t work for you.
    • It can be scary and intimidating, especially when it comes to investing your money or trying to tackle a chunk of debt.
    • It’s humbling and discouraging. That’s why the negative voice in your head gets so much airtime and reminds you of all your mistakes. You worry you’re not good enough or don’t have what it takes to achieve your goals.
    • The voice in your head doesn’t respond to polite requests to pipe down. How do you deal with the constant negativity? How do you stop the voice from dragging you down or keeping you stuck?
    • You don’t know what you don’t know. How are you supposed to find your blind spots?

 

I get it. I’ve been there and faced all of those challenges,
which is why I spent twenty years figuring it out and going from a net worth of
negative $400,000 to multiple seven figures.
I can show you how to do the same thing for yourself and save you 19 years of stress, overwhelm, and wasted money.

"Working with someone who has done what I am doing (I no longer say 'trying' to do and that is in large part thanks to Doris) is worth its weight in gold. I get to sidestep the mistakes that Doris made and benefit from her 20/20 hindsight vision. She's got the professional experience and expertise and the personality and people skills that I trust and need.

The program focused on me as a whole person - I have not seen this holistic approach to finances and building financial freedom elsewhere. It is very empowering and the only way that this journey feels authentic and sustainable for me."

"100% worth paying money to meet and get to know women who are doing something similar to me. Building a community in that intentional way is priceless. We know that the people we spend the most time with influence us and this was a way of consciously curating who I surround myself with. We also fed off of one another's energy in such a powerful way. It was also beautiful to watch people step into these empowered, strong, authentic versions of themselves. Really revolutionary to see the changes in the other participants (and it is always easier to see in others as opposed to yourself)."

My Money-Back Promise

I know what it’s like to read about a program that sounds like it could be a great fit, but you wonder, “What if I don’t like it?

What if I don’t resonate with the coach? What if the material doesn’t meet my expectations?”

When you invest your time and your money, it’s important that you feel confident you’ll get great value in return.

I know that my students and clients get great results and an excellent return on investment when they implement                                                        what they’ve learned, but I get that you don’t yet know that for yourself.

I want you to be fully satisfied with your purchase. That’s why I’m offering a Money-Back Promise:

If you’ve attended the first retreat, watched the video lessons for the first month, completed the exercises, attended the first group coaching session, and you don’t find the program useful, send me an email and I’ll happily refund your full payment, within four weeks of the program start date. No hard feelings!

This provides you with a risk-free opportunity to experience my program and my coaching for yourself.

"Doris is super smart and knows the right balance between pushing me to where I know I can go (and often places I don't yet know I can go) and also respecting my limits. She strikes the perfect balance.

Doris is helping me to dream big, make plans, make the dreams happen and also fully recognizes that sometimes part of that process means that you’re going to not do anything other than rest, process, and let things sink in. Super important for anyone who is recovering from any kind of trauma. Doris is also an amazing balance of being incredibly intuitive and totally grounded, logical, and practical. It's a rare combination."

- Anne P

Who is this Program for?

The Financial Freedom Accelerator program is for you if you:

  • want to make more money
  • want more me-time
  • want results now, not in five or ten years
  • want a simple money system that is effective and easy to maintain
  • want clarity on your goals and the best way to achieve them
  • are tired of feeling overwhelmed by your finances and all the moving parts
  • are tired of trying to figure it out alone
  • have had enough of feeling like you’re not where you should be and that financial ease is only for other people
  • want to create better options for your future
  • want waaaaaaay more from your money and your life
  • want to feel in control of your money and your future
  • want to make savvy financial decisions with confidence, instead of second-guessing yourself and worrying about making mistakes
  • are willing to do the work to learn
  • are ready to divorce financial overwhelm
  • want a Done-with-You system to guide you through the steps that matter
  • understand that coaching and guidance will save you a great deal of time, stress, and money

 

You have to be willing to put in the time to learn and to implement the material in the program.

I’ve deliberately structured the program so that it is incremental and doable by crazy-busy women.

I get that you’re juggling a dozen balls in the air right now. There is built-in flex time to allow for those moments when life happens.

I’ve distilled years of research and information from multiple domains – finance, behavioral economics, and psychology – into bite-sized chunks and I will show you how to put every element in place, but you nonetheless need to do the work in order to reap the rewards.

The good news is that it’s absolutely worth it.

If you’re willing to invest your time, you can learn while building your confidence.

And you will benefit for a lifetime.

"My work with Doris didn't meet my expectations; it exceeded them. I would recommend Doris's coaching to others because she is adept at spotting patterns and calling out self-defeating behavioural s**t exactly when I need it, in a clear and compassionate way!

Doris is brilliant at synthesizing info and providing a list of do-able action items that yield impactful results. And she's fun! ('Cause let's be honest, coaching would totally suck if it wasn't fun at least some of the time.)"

- Eva S

This Program is not for you if:

The programs aren’t for you if:

  • you’re not willing to carve out time to learn and work on your finances.
  • you’re looking for instant results. Not gonna happen. There is no mystery here. There is simply no other way to get to financial freedom other than to do the work. Once your financial system is set up, you’ll be able to maintain it with little effort; but first you have to learn how and put the system in place.
  • you’re looking for a Done-for-You system. That’s not what I’m about. You will never be financially free, or confident, until you take responsibility for your money and remain accountable for the decisions. Your financial security and financial freedom depend on it.
  • your family is struggling to afford the necessities. These programs are designed for people who have sufficient income to fully cover essential expenses and priorities. If you don’t have enough cash flow, as a family, to pay for essentials, then this isn’t the right time for you to participate in these programs. Focus on growing your income and reach out if you need help. If you’re really struggling, take a look at the Scholarship option below.

Your Future Depends on Your Decisions Today

Fast-forward the clock and picture yourself ten or twenty years down the road.

What does that look like? What’s changed?

How confident are you about your money and your choices? 

More importantly, have you achieved your most important goals and are you able to benefit from the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re financially solid?

How would it feel to be able to live life on your terms and to ditch the overwhelm that comes from having ineffective systems, no clarity, and no compass?

Wouldn’t it be great to look back with total satisfaction and think, “I’m so glad I took the opportunity and the steps necessary to figure out this years ago. What a relief to not still be dealing with that today!”

Here’s the thing: Your future depends on your choices today. Where you end up will, in part, be a function of the choices you make and the actions you take today.

If you’re thinking, “I’ll figure this out later,” – will you really? When, exactly, is “later”?

As Kate Beeders said, there is no date on the calendar called, “later”.

Will you regret putting off learning this important information and getting experienced guidance to fast-track your results?

Will you look back and say, like so many women I talk to, “I wish I had done this years ago. If only I had.”

The one thing you can say for certain is that the sooner you learn how to take charge of your finances and your mindset, the more money you will save, make, and grow.

And the faster you can create the life you really want, which is doable with the right approach and some effort.

Time isn’t money, but it can certainly be costly to waste it – a lesson I learned the hard way.

You’re going to work hard anyway over the next year; make it count!

"Doris is my financial fairy godmother. I f***ing love her!"

Meet some of the program Graduates …

These women built an incredible bond over the course of twelve months while they supported one another through challenges and growth.

This photo was taken at the end-of-the-year celebration, with one graduate flying in from another province, and another driving up from another city. It was a fun and laughter-filled evening as we acknowledged all that they accomplished.

Take a look at the list above. That’s just some of what they achieved in one year, and they’re just beginning! This is what happens when you have a supportive group of like-minded women and an experienced guide.

“Doris is the best person at explaining financial information that I’ve seen.”
