FAST Money Management Program

Find peace with your finances

Achieve balance with your budget and debt

Save and invest wisely

Tomorrow’s retirement will be secure

Why you need to get started now

Maybe you’ve taken classes, read books and researched personal finance but nothing seems to work,  and you are super frustrated that you can’t get your money under control.

Maybe you haven’t started, but you know you need to and you just don’t know where to start.

Time is your biggest friend or your worst enemy when it comes to money.

9 out of 10 women will need to be 100% responsible for their finances at some point in their lives, most likely when they are over 65 years old. 

That may be because of divorce or the death of their partner. Women out live men by an average of 5 years. 

You can’t wait until you are a senior to understand how this works.

You are either in, or entering your prime earning years. 

You want to enjoy this time as well as maximize your financial plans to ensure the type of retirement you want. 

Your prime earning years will be the years you can most effectively launch and execute a plan that ensures your financial freedom from today through your retirement.

So what will you get from this class?

  • Self-paced, on-line classes with live videos
  • Tools to measure your wealth and monitor its growth
  • Tools for setting and achieving your savings goals
  • Tools for managing your debt and creating realistic plans to get debt free
  • A budget model that allows you easily see where your money is coming from and where it’s going
  • A budget model for your next year that balances your spending,  plans your debt payoff and includes savings goals
  • Worksheets for planning your retirement (cause you know you want an amazing life in retirement and you don’t want to be worrying about running out of money!)
  • A truly amazing support system with weekly live Q&A and a community of people just like you

Why does this class work so well?

Other classes focus on one piece of personal finance

Maybe they focus on getting out of debt, retirement planning, or budgeting, which is great.  But if they only focus on one piece, you are quickly left feeling like something else is out of control.

This class puts ALL the pieces together

I’m going to teach you how each of the five pieces, Budgeting, Debt, Saving, Investing and Retirement work, and how they need to work together.  This class gives you everything you need to really take control of your money.

Other classes only teach theory

There is nothing more frustrating than learning some cool new idea or concept, and then feeling like you have absolutely no idea how to implement it in your life.

You will leave this class with a plan that works

This is a hands on class.  After each lesson, I will walk you through applying it to your life.  Each lessons builds on the next so by the time you are done, you will have a complete financial plan that works specifically for you.

Thank you for creating this course!  Not only does Linda know the material extremely well, she does an amazing job of explaining it in terms anyone can understand.  She also is incredibly caring and its obvious she wants her students to succeed.  This is a must class for everyone.


Why am I teaching this class?

Hi!  I’m Linda Hannon

I help women understand  how personal finance works. I love being able to teach all the things about money that you never learned before.  The confidence and peace you will find is priceless.

I spent the last 30 years as a Controller, Chief Financial Officer and business consultant to both public and private companies.  Over that time, I learned how to create long term financial plans that allowed the owners to see and achieve growth and profitability.  I was really, really good at it.

On the flip side, when I was 37, I had no personal financial plan.  All the things I did to make my companies successful were not happening at home.  That changed the day I realized I was behind in saving for my son’s college and my retirement.

Over the last 20 years I developed the 6 step FAST Money Management Program for managing my own personal finances.  I follow the steps once every year.  It got me out of debt, allowed my son to graduate from college debt free, and I will be able to retire before I’m 62 (If I want).

I started teaching my 6 step system to women I know and I was surprised and excited to see the sense of peace it brought them.   It was particularly gratifying to see them reach their Big O (as in Ohhhh….is THAT  how it works) moment. I want other women to feel this too!

Imagine what your life would be like if you had your personal finances under control

  1. Know you will never run out of money.
  2. Have no stress about paying bills because you know how they fit into your long term financial plan.
  3. Know what to do when the inevitable crisis occurs, so you do not blow up your long-term plans to get the situation under control.
  4. Know what your life will look like in retirement.
  5. Live a lifestyle that makes you comfortable and happy, confident that you can afford your home, your car, and the things you make your life complete.
  6. Have an easy process you can repeat every year to make sure you are on track and you stay that way.
  7. Be at peace with your money

There are real reasons you don’t have your money under control

  • Where do you start?
  • Who do you go to, to ask for guidance and advice?
  • Who do you trust to take care of you and your money?
  • Where do you find the time to learn all this?
  • How do you overcome the fear?
  • Every time you reach out to a professional for help, you run into high pressure sales people trying to sell you something.
  • You’re embarrassed and don’t want to sit in a room full of other people to figure this out.

You aren’t alone

  • A recent survey by Prudential showed that only 20% of women felt they could manage money and only 14% thought they were on track to have enough for retirement.
The fastest, easiest way to overcome these challenges is with our FAST Money Management Program.

You can learn how it works through our class, The FAST Money Management Program (6 Steps to Master your Money and Create a Plan That Gives You Financial Freedom).

Spend about an hour a week  for 7 weeks, and when you are done  you will understand how money works and you will have created an easy, one page personal financial plan for YOUR life.

This class can work for you if you are feeling:
Worried or Scared?

Do you worry about how much money you owe?

Are you scared you won’t have enough money to retire when you want to?

Do you know people in retirement that are in dire financial situations and you worry that will be you one day?



When you get an unexpected bill does your stomach knot?

Do you dread looking at your bank or credit card statements because you are afraid of what you will see?

Are you buying things you are afraid you can’t really afford?


Are you ready to let go of the worry, fear and stress?

Are you ready to find out how this all works and put a plan in place to make sure you are financially secure for the rest of your life?

Are you ready to take control and find peace with the money in your life?

This was such a great course!  Personal finance is so stressful.  This course confirmed for me, that my husband and I are on track and doing all the right things.  It’s such a relief to have the new confidence I got from this class.
