Over one full quarter, you’ll experience:
- One 1:1 Session with Melissa Mitt, Accredited Financial Counselor® Candidate
- Three PAL Group Coaching & Accountability Meetings (1/month)
- Values workshop to uncover your true values to inform your goals
- 1:1 check-ins with your dedicated accountability partner
- Collaboration and comradery with women who are changing their lives and their community
“The PAL program was so incredibly helpful for me. I excel at getting into the weeds of an issue and then getting overwhelmed with the steps to get where I want to go. This helped so much between the coaching and accountability partnership for focus on a few things, not get overwhelmed, and get back to focusing on the big picture. My goals changed during the process, but 100% for the better. My goals are now aligned with what I actually want instead of what I feel ‘should’ be happening or what I’m afraid of. There’s still plenty of work to do, but I am feeling drastically better about my goals and my own ability to reach those goals.”-Selena

“Melissa’s Values Aligned Financial Goals workshop was super clarifying and encouraging. The values exercise helped me get clear on what’s most important to me (Authenticity and Accountability), as well as reconnect with my motivation. I really appreciated Melissa’s thoughtful questions that helped me develop simple (not overwhelming!) action steps. She was so supportive and patient with our processes, and I came away feeling rejuvenated. I definitely recommend working with her!” – Crystal

What is the difference between The Pledgettes Accountability League and The Pledgettes Membership?

You’ll form a bond with your PAL and those relationships can continue beyond the structure from the 3-months of the League or you can sign up for the next quarter too!

Why does PAL cost less than other accountability groups?
Since launching The Pledgettes, we have been told to raise our prices (we appreciate the hype women and allies who believe in the value we do). However, we are here to be a hub for values-driven women and personal finance. We want The Pledgettes to be a part of your personal financial journey AND for you to have money to do more. Make more values-driven money moves, build your Financial A-Team, and achieve your Financial Goals (which all take money).
And we believe that every confident money move you make in alignment with your values and goals has a ripple effort for you to build more wealth AND a collective impact towards healthier, wealthier communities.
So yes, support our business and the community and tools we provide for you to take an active role on your personal financial journey and then use your money!
