I offer a hands-on, real-life, upbeat approach to a subject that has so many paralyzed. My services are designed to move you to the next level. Wherever you are, the focus is on you. The reality is, even if you win the lottery or inherit a fortune if you do not have money management skills, your fortune can be short-lived. Don’t waste any more time. Let’s get started!

Throughout my career

The #1 thing I hear

is no one ever taught me how to manage my money.

My name is Lana Williams. I am a Financial Coach. I started working at a bank right out of college, in a management training program where I worked in every department of the bank.  My career has since been entirely in the financial sector including banking, investment advising, and bank industry consulting. My life changed when I decided I wanted more from life than working long hours so I could own a bunch of stuff. I gave up my career, moved into a lower-paying position, and started to live. I would not have been able to do that without the money management skills my parents taught me and my years in the industry. If I know anything, I know that there is a huge lack of personal finance education; yet it is probably the single most important. I am committed to changing that.



80% of Americans

live paycheck-to-paycheck


39% of Americans

have enough savings to cover a $1,000 emergency

I have worked in just about every aspect of the financial services industry. One thing I can attest to is:  how much money you make isn’t as important as how you manage it. I am an advocate of financial literacy and believe it can greatly increase a person’s quality of life. I want to reach as many people as I can. Therefore, I offer resources such as an eBook and online courses for even the most modest budget.

As a Financial Coach, I help my clients develop healthy money habits that will last. I educate and work one-on-one with them to create a financial plan that reflects their goals. We structure budgets, create savings strategies, and implement debt payoff plans. I also serve as an accountability partner and support. In addition, I offer online courses for those who are more comfortable doing it themselves or are not sure they are ready for coaching.

To further assist those wanting intrinsic change, I partner in InnerLight Solutions, an integrative coaching firm that serves clients using a combination of Life and Financial Coaching.
