We are Chris and Heidi Poirier. We've been together for nearly 20 years! Starting out very young and having some rocky situations, including having a child right out of high school we were blessed to be connected with people who were willing to be open and simply talk.
Talking about their successes & failures, people that opened up about why their marriage of decades failed, money problems, success and failures in everything from raising children to business successes and failures. People that have created great wealth and some that keep trying the same thing with the same result while struggling with some of the fundamentals. In addition to what is probably one of the most important, the influences of people teaching us "This life is what YOU make it!" and providing us the encouragement to open our businesses.
Chris is driven by the opportunity to help people. Seeing people improve and enjoy their lives, there is not much of a better feeling than being part of that positive change.
After attending college for personal finance & business management, in addition to trying money management societies' way, it became clear, this system doesn't work. How is a broke 18/19-year-old with a child supposed to get ahead with this? Answer: They're not! After realizing debt is a risk no matter what his professor tried to say, Ramsey, Burkett and the Bible starting making sense.
So in 2006 we slowly started implementing Ramsey's teaching in our home. During this time conversations about being debt-free and smart money habits began (mostly initiated by him), it didn't take long for others to start asking questions It began with "Go read this book, go listen to this" and so on... Before we realized it we were doing mini-coaching impromptu sessions, explaining why they needed to be debt-free, how to get debt-free, how to create a plan, have a strong emergency fund, improve spousal communication and so on.
Heidi is an accomplished businesswoman, wife, mother and sister.
Heidi spent many years building relationships in the face to face sales world. She is very passionate about the products and services that help improve our lives. She believes very strongly in advocacy, and people sharing knowledge to enrich others.
Other interesting facts about your coaching couple:
*We always try to conduct sessions together, two reasons, this allows us to spend more time together, but also gives two perspectives during coaching to provide the best coaching experience.
