Hello to all!
I’m Robin Althoff and I currently reside in Culpeper, Virginia. Culpeper is about 45 minutes north of Charlottesville, VA and about an hour west of Washington, DC.
I am currently building my dream business as a financial coach for young adults and entrepreneurs. After five successful years of teaching economics & personal finance in the public high school setting, I have taken a year off from teaching to pursue this dream to impact more lives and help those who failed to receive the proper education when they were in school.
I look forward to engaging in great conversations and getting to know my fellow peers here in this program! Thank you for creating this forum for us!Claudia MartinsParticipantApril 11, 2020 at 3:53 amPost count: 1

Hello, I’m Tambreshia Richardson. I live in Dallas, TX. I am currently a Manager Financial Analyst for an aerospace company. I have a financial background in corporate as well as I spend a few years teaching 6th grade math. I mentor youth and help prepare them financially for college. I also have my own credit restoration/tax preparation company in which I am looking to move away from being hands on with that to position myself as the financial coach.Tia JohnsonParticipantJuly 21, 2020 at 12:49 pmPost count: 9
That is impressive. I would love to connect to learn more about your experience.Belinda PoreeParticipantAugust 7, 2020 at 10:24 pmPost count: 7
Hi. My name is Belinda Poree. I live in Harlem in New York City. One of the most expensive cities in the world. A studio apartment in a low-income neighborhood can run you about $1.5-$2k a month here. So many people here are living paycheck to paycheck and I was one of them. I don’t have a financial background. All that I learned about finances was through trial and error and self-teaching. After paying off massive credit card debt in 2 years, a co-worker asked me to teach her how to do what I’ve been doing. I know what works for me but I don’t want to give people false information. I am taking this course because I want to be able to efficiently and effectively help others who are going through what I went through. I want to learn how to help people who are stuck and don’t have the financial education to free themselves.Devin StubblefieldParticipantAugust 20, 2020 at 7:02 pmPost count: 13

My name is Guy Purdy and I’m from Maui, HI. Recently got my life insurance license and was preparing to get my securities license but came across this training program to become a CPFC. I decided it was in my best interest to take this course as it is more aligned to my plans on becoming a Financial Coach. I feel there’s a strong demand for this type of business and it would be very rewarding to help educate people on becoming financially sound.Patrick SchmittParticipantMay 5, 2021 at 2:32 pmPost count: 3
My name is Patrick Schmitt, from Chesapeake, Virginia. I’ve been involved in training for the military as an active duty service member and in my subsequent federal position. Most of this training was at the tactical or command level, but I know from experience that if the personal side of things is not squared away, the service members will not be able to execute the mission effectively. Success of our service men and women in their personal lives directly equates to success downrange.
My goal is to provide coaching and education resources to junior military personnel, setting them up for career and personal achievements. I am excited to start a business providing this much needed information, and look forward to working with you all to support this effort.
PatrickEric ColbyParticipantJune 1, 2021 at 5:38 pmPost count: 9
My name is Eric Colby from Portland, Maine. During 2020 I completed the NFEC Financial Education Certification during COVID. I have since decided to become a financial coach for a few reasons. Fist to learn how to better help my family and not make the mistakes I had made in the past. I am the poster child of what not to do with your finances while growing up. I learned the worst habits from my parents, but on the flip side people always wondered how we always did ok in life. I learned a hard lesson when I decided to serve my country and the pay was much less than my lifestyle. Then life threw a nasty curveball and I was injured and was separated from the service. Separated with a lot of debt, injured and I was homeless with my wife and kids.
I ended up at the public library reading books on personal finance and business. Long story short after several years, I decided it was time to become certified which led me here to NFEC so I can help more people so they never have to go through what I went through in life, and it was a result of my upbringing and lack of financial education. Now with the knowledge I gained from life experiences, reading, the NFEC course and putting my family on a path to debt freedom I am so passionate about helping others do the same so they don’t have to live pay check to paycheck. I look forward to connecting with and working with you all.
Wishing you all the best,
