SAVING MONEY WHEN YOU’RE YOUNG SETS YOU UP FOR LIFE:
To achieve independence. To care for your family. To give back to your community.
BENEFIT FROM A VIRTUOUS CYCLE:
THE KEY IS STARTING YOUNG:
To achieve financial goals at a young age you must form good habits early, adopt the right mindset, give money time to grow, and avoid obstacles to saving money in the first place.
Learn (early). Succeed (early). Rinse. Repeat. You can be set for life!
WHY WE STARTED: THE PROBLEMS
The reality is that most young people are not saving enough money.
In fact, most Americans live paycheck to paycheck.
Even worse, most young adults are in no position to even start saving:
saddled with college debt, underemployed, and not financially literate.
HOW WE ARE UNIQUE: A ROADMAP FROM START TO FINISH
We deliver what is truly needed to solve these problems; a Roadmap and personal process, so you can succeed in school, work, and in life.
We focus on ‘starting young’.
Through story-based lessons we teach broad life skills, soft skills, and match specific solutions to specific problems.
Since you can’t save if deep in debt, we help you choose the right initial career path and avoid excessive college debt.
Since you can’t save if you can’t earn, we ensure you are adaptable and skilled to stay employed and employable in a changing world.
We offer a refreshingly frank conversation about the challenges young people face to save money.
We address the broken systems that perpetuate these problems.
We emphasize that, in the end, it is your responsibility to overcome these challenges.

A sherpa provides expert guidance on Himalayan climbs. A sherpa prepares, teaches, and supports the climber before and along the journey. We want to be your financial sherpa. While many financial firms use names that evoke an image of the peak, summit, or pinnacle (i.e., symbolizing the end point, retirement), we recognize that many people, particularly students and young adults, are at the very beginning. Your Sherpa, LLC is with you at basecamp, ready to teach, inspire, and guide you to financial success and better life outcomes.
"Many young adults are choosing schools they can't afford and careers that do not generate the earnings power needed to pay off college debt. Many others can't apply their degrees or stay employed in today's changing world, despite many job openings. My goal is to produce financially savvy and career ready young adults. This requires content that teaches actionable lessons and broad life skills about earning and saving money. "
