Welcome to Firebird Finance!
For those of us who are sick of the 9-5 and are looking for “something more”, welcome! That something more could be the freedom to take a lower paying job that’s more fulfilling, spending more time with family, or traveling the world. Whatever your “something more” may be, whatever drives you, is the why behind your life and should be the why behind your finances.
Hi! I’m Emily, a financial coach working towards my “something more.” For now, that means striving to get out of the ‘trading time for money’ cycle. Then, as I build my future family, along with my amazing wife, Kayla, I’ll be more present for my kids and better able to pursue other interests, like traveling and spreading financial literacy.
What I strive for on this journey may change over time, but for now I just want to be able to give myself and my family options for the future; allowing us to make more choices that don’t need to be driven by the size of our wallet.
Where Do I Start?
You might read what I have above and think. “That’s great. I want to pursue this kind of financial security and freedom as well, but where do I start?” Great question! Here are some of the articles that I’ve written for those just starting out.

The best is yet to come!
