The Money Coach

Lynette Klafani is my idol. Well if I had $100,000 in credit card debt or $40,000 in student loans to pay off, she would be. Why you ask? Lynetee Klanfani, better known as The Money Coach, dug herself into almost $150,000 of a mixed use (both bad and good) debt hole. What makes this story so tremendous is that she also dug herself out in only THREE Years! Ok, so maybe she is my idol.

Lynnette earned a Master of Arts degree in Journalism from the University of Southern California, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of California, Irvine. She currently has three children and has conquered all forms of media. You can find her in print, on the radio and live on TV (Dr. Phil,Tyra Banks, & CNBC). She’s even sat down with Oprah Winfrey. I ❤ O!(I love Oprah)

Lynette is so money. Currently she has five (count ’em) book titles that you all should rush out to buy (or get from the library; Lynette understands that times may be hard). They are:

  1. The Money Coach’s Guide to Your First Million (McGraw Hill)
  2. Investing Success: How To Conquer 30 Costly Mistakes & Multiply Your Wealth!
  3. New York Times bestseller Zero Debt: The Ultimate Guide to Financial Freedom (Advantage World Press).
  4. A sequel to Zero Debt, called Zero Debt for College Grads: From Student Loans to Financial Freedom
  5. Your First Home: The Smart Way to Get It and Keep It

Stay tuned for the book reviews! You can also visit and make arrangements to hire (such a business woman) Lynette Khalfani at her own website

She is truly an inspiration and I was fortunate enough to meet Lynette at a book signing held at my university. She told me to always stay positive. Something so simple yet, at the time, it really spoke to me. I thought: though the road may be rough ahead it is the only road leading you to success.

Managing your money can be daunting and point blank hard. It isn’t easy feeling the pressures from all sides to ‘buy’, to define yourself and your worth by what you can touch and show off. Even more difficult than managing however, is losing and dealng with money and money issues that have spiraled out of control.

When you save or invest, your money can only grow. But when you spend, and it doesn’t even matter what you spend it on, your money can only diminish. And no, money does not regenerate itself. Something so simple…
