Earlene Coats is a speaker and coach who is partnering with parents and communities to fill the gaps in life skills and financial understanding that is not taught in our school system. She empowers women and young adults to live a life the love and achieve their dreams using their gifts and talents. She is on a mission to develop millions of financially savvy young adults who are good stewards of their money, time, gifts, talents and giving back to their community. Imagine living a life you LOVE while inspiring those you love to break out of the norms taught today. Having built multiple successful companies and lead large organizations, Earlene has learned the importance of finding our purpose and the financial choices we make every day. Some of what she was taught in the earlier years has significantly cost her both time and money. She shares these life lessons to help others avoid those mistakes along with simple practical steps that can be put into action immediately.
