Financial coaching and education
When you have extra money, it’s easy to talk about all the responsible things you should do with it. But when you find yourself not having enough money to take care of you and your family, you go into survival mode.
Remove that stress by taking control of your life. The OSU Extension Financial Coaching and Education program gives you the tools to break down your challenges into smaller, manageable pieces of a plan that works!
This free program has been created for individuals who want to improve their ability to become financially stable.
Individual coaching appointments are available in-person at the Coshocton County Extension Office or virtually online via Zoom.
MONDAY – FRIDAY, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM (also flexible, virtual evening hours)
For more details please contact: Emily Marrison, Educator Family and Consumer Sciences at 740-622-2265 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Financial Coaching consists of at least 3 sessions (1-1.5 hours each), over a 3-month time period, without children present. Please be prepared to share 1 month of receipts and a list of set expenses at the first session.
