Does anyone have any information on Financial “Coaches”? Looking for one in the Atlanta Area. I saw a show where a “coach” assessed a person’s spending habits and helped out with budgeting. All I have been able to run across are financial planners whose services are more geared toward investing, and less toward budgeting. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Check out: http://www.daveramsey.com/ – Then on the right under “Financial Counseling”.

I have never been to a Debtors Anonymous meeting, and I doubt there are any “coaches” there, but there are probably long term members who can tell inspirational stories about how they got out of debt and stayed out of debt. You can find out more, and if there are meetings in your area by going to their website. I don’t have the link but you can find it easily doing a search. Just type in Debtors Anonymous.
