Accomplish Your Financial Goals
One Week at a Time
Identify Your Most Important Financial Goals
If you’ve been caught in an endless cycle of setting goals and failing to reach them, it might be you’re not identifying the most important ones. Your most important financial goals can’t be accomplished overnight and need to be broken down into acheivable short-term actions.
Learn the Strategies of the Game with Others Like You
It’s not uncommon to feel alone in your confusion about what to do next with your money. There are millions of people like you who have made financial mistakes but who want things to be different. Come learn the rules and strategies of the game so you can accomplish your goals together.
Break Free of the "Conventional Wisdom" Trap
Conventional wisdom might be good in some areas, but it’s not when it comes to your money. A “one sized fits all” approach is good for the companies dispensing the wisdom, but a customized approach is better. Break free of the conventional wisdom trap and customize your plan with us.

“Lesley and I love Vaughan’s teaching. We have learned things we should have known, in fact we probably have learned before, but have just forgotten.”

What Makes The Academy Different
I know what it feels like to be confused about what to do with your money. I’ve been there too. It’s taken me years to understand the jargon and the acronyms, which are often used to make the financial decision-making process confusing.
Because of this, I’ve created the Moore Money Academy. Like the academies of old, this one is made up of a community of people who gather around to discuss foundational principles and the topics of the day on money. On a weekly basis, I pick the principle and guide the discussion so it doesn’t get out of hand. But I let real people ask real questions about the real things that are going on in their financial lives. This builds trust in me and the community so that you can accomplish your most important financial goals one week at a time.
I use tools that tell a story with words, pictures and numbers. My storyboards animate financial scenarios over time so you can see what happens to your money when foundational assumptions like rate of return, inflation, or tax rates change. The things you’ll learn through the academy will fundamentally change your understanding of how money works and you’ll be able to make decisions about what to do with your money based on real knowledge rather than the “conventional wisdom” that really isn’t right for everyone.
The longer you’re a part of the Acadmey the more your confidence will grow as your financial situation changes. You’ll be able to live a fuller, more impactful life. And you’ll be able to live it today rather than waiting for some distant retirement date decades in the future. Together, we’ll help you accomplish your most important financial goals one week at a time.
Impactful Teaching & Conversations
On A Weekly Basis
Weekly Webinar with Q&A
The best way to tackle important topics is to do it regularly with a bunch of people who are going through similar issues.
If you can’t be there live, all sessions are archived so you can catch them later.
Continue the discussions with me and the other members throughout the week inside each lesson.
Plus A Special Bonus
The Moore Money Academy includes an exclusive “Financial Tune Up” class you won’t find anywhere else. Using your paystub you receive every month, you’ll learn more about how money flows through your financial house than anywhere else.
The following 5 Lessons will take 72 minutes to complete and include action items along the way to “tune up” what you’re currently doing.
Income Tune Up
When A Pay Raise is Really A Pay Cut
You’ve gotten a raise, but you don’t feel like you’re better off. Why?
Although any raise is better than nothing, something I call your “personal inflation rate” will determine if you’re moving forward or backward.
In this 12 minute lesson:
Taxes Tune Up
Did The IRS Steal Your Refund?
If you wrote a check to the IRS last April, you might be wondering if the IRS pulled a fast one on you. There was a tax cut last year, right?
There’s real reason to be concerned, but it’s not what most people think. Uncle Sam gets 1st crack at your income and this lesson shows you all the areas that aren’t obvious at 1st glance.
In this 23 minute lesson:
Discover the ONE number that is most important when making tax decisions, so tax time is less stressful
Learn the foolproof way to ensure you get the tax refund you want, because it’s great to get a windfall in April
Find a simple method to increase your take home pay next paycheck, so that you have a little breathing room next month
Benefits Tune Up
Are You Insurance Poor?
You’re shelling out an arm and a leg for insurance through your work benefits program and you have no idea if it’s right for you. Or, you have to pay for it on your own and you feel like you’re getting ripped off.
This lesson will get you on the right track when it comes to protecting you and your family when the unthinkable happens.
In this 13 minute lesson:
Pre-Tax Savings Tune Up
Don’t Max Fund Your 401(k) without knowing these things first.
If you feel like your “money guy” is giving you the same advice he gives all his other clients, you’re probably right.
Max funding your 401(k) or IRA is only one example of a one-size-fits-all philosophy that permeates the industry.
Understanding the fundamentals of pre-tax savings and knowing when to use it and when to look for other options is the heart of this lesson.
In this 14 minute lesson:
After-Tax Savings Tune Up
Half Billion Paid in Early Withdrawal Penalties!
Tax Deferral is great, until you need the money…
In 2012 Uncle Sam raked in close to $500 million in early withdrawal penalties because millions didn’t have money in an accessible place.
You’ll learn in this lesson that access to capital can be more important that accumulation of capital.
In this 10 minute lesson:
What Do You Have to Lose?
Confusion about your financial future
Shame over your past financial mistakes
Anger at the financial establishment for leading you astray
Wonder about what to do next to accomplish your next most important financial goal
Sorrow over not being able to be an impact to those most important to you

B udgeting has been given a bad rap. Millions have tried it and given up. Thousands of articles have been written about it. Hundreds of apps have been developed. Lots of “financial guru’s” swear by it. Yet, most give it a try and give up before they experience the real freedom it gives. Why…
I know something is coming in the mail today, a bright new Apple MacBook Pro. I’m excited. I bought my last new computer back in 2012 so it’s time.I’ve been planning for it to arrive for the last few days. After I got the UPS notice that the delivery window would be between 3:15 and 7:15 pm, I cleared my schedule…
Buyers remorse is a powerful emotion. We’ve all had it before. “Why did I buy that? I know I don’t need it, but I wanted it. I shouldn’t have…”
