How To Avoid Squirrel Moments With Your Money

We all have moments when something shiny distracts us from our ultimate goal. Join your host, Laura Coleman, as she discusses squirrel moments and how you can help avoid them in your future. Squirrel moments? Yes, you know things like, we are on track to have the money for adoption or fertility, BUT look at that shiny new car. We have a goal to have $2500 in our emergency fund, BUT oh look at that weekend getaway to New York. We have a goal to pay off our debt this year, BUT oh look I need to buy a new pair of shoes.

Squirrel moments are those things that distract us from what we truly want, but they are so shiny and alluring that we forget what our reason behind our goal. Laura provides some tips on how you can avoid those squirrel moments that delay your goals.


I’m looking forward to Qube Money coming out because it will help with personal spending money being reigned in. I love that my clients will be able to set aside the money into a Qube or pot of money and still use the convenience of a debit card. If you get distracted by a squirrel moment, you just need to look at the Qube and see if you have money for that squirrel moment. You’ll also be able to see what you are taking money away from if you do decide to use it. It’s creating purpose and intention with your money.

You can also sign up to be a Beta tester right now. Lifetime Memberships are available right now for $216. After the app launches, the price is $8 a month. I bought the Lifetime Membership and signed up to be a beta tester because I don’t want to pay a monthly fee later.

See what Kelli said about the Preparing Financially for Adoption Course!

“I believe one of the biggest struggles families can face is financial struggles and the last thing you want or need is to tie your roller coaster emotions that adoption can bring to poor financial decisions. Preparing financially for Adoption is a resource I wish we had available to us when we adopted! What a gift it would have been to have the structure and accountability to keep us on the same page and communicating before, during and after our adoption process.

The spreadsheets provided are gold for staying organized which can relieve a lot of stress. There are also guides for date nights and talking about the $ that I find valuable even now! Money is something that is easy to let one person handle or to choose to not talk about and it’s so vital to stay connected on this topic especially when you are making big life decisions for your family such as adopting.

Because Laura is a Money Coach and an adoptive mom you can trust she is giving you sound and valuable information.

There are so many things that are required to invest in to prepare for adoption, in my opinion this course should be one of them!”
