What They Say
Before working with Mala, I didn’t have a clear idea of how much money I spent each month. I chose to avoid looking at my finances, which carried a lot of emotional baggage and prevented me from investing MORE in my business.
Every month, Mala and I would sit down and look at how much money I was spending on my business and how it went toward my personal expenses, such as rent and going out. Living in NYC, I knew I spent more money than the average person, but actually seeing what kind of money I was spending on entertainment and food each week was a real eye opener!
The three most significant improvements in my life/business after working with Mala were; I have boosted my savings from $3k to over $12k in just one year! I also am able to save enough for my taxes each year, so I don’t have any nasty surprises come April. I now have habits in place to analyze my spending and see exactly what I spent vs. what I earned on a month to month basis
One of the things I absolutely LOVE was seeing how my earnings get spent each month - it makes running my business run so much smoother and lets me invest in my business guilt-free!
If you’re considering hiring Mala - DO IT! She will provide you with the accountability you need to develop healthy spending & tracking habits - both of which are critical to improving your financial situation. Doing it on your own is so much harder to schedule, but once you’ve gotten the ball rolling, the payoff is massive.

Working with Mala was so great because she took such a holistic approach and really adjusted her approach based on my unique needs and level. I work in finance, so I didn’t necessarily have too many issues with balancing excel sheets and/or spreadsheets in general - but I did have a ton of issues with old money scripts and managing my thoughts around money. Mala helped coach me through the process of uncovering old money beliefs in a very gentle way that ended up being super transformative for me.
Thanks to working with Mala, I have 100% more clarity on where and how I’d create profit in my business. I had a brand new set of affirmations to follow to improve my emotional issues when it comes to money. I had more confidence in my business because I could clearly identify where my money was coming from.
My income over the three months that I worked with Mala increased by over 100% from the 3 months prior. I was hitting consistent revenue numbers for 3 months in a row - in a way that I hadn’t been able to months before:)
Working with Mala was the support I needed to take the next step in my life when it comes to my business. My business began to transform - as a result of the work we did together and it’s because of her that I’m leaving my 9-5 job to run my business full time shortly!
Thank you Mala!

I have been working with Mala since May 2018. At the time we began working together, I was thousands of dollars in debt, with no end to it being in view. I was worried about back taxes that were owed and whether or not I would ever be able to fully retire (I was 66 at the time).
Now, It is August 2019, just a little over a year later, I am COMPLETELY out of debt!!!!! I have an emergency savings account for the first time in decades, and ample discretionary funds to have fun (Mala even helped me to create a shoe fund to indulge my guilty pleasure each month)!
I cannot sing Mala’s praises enough. She provides exceptional customer service and works WITH you. She takes her cues from you in helping to customize a budget, but she gently helps you to think through barriers that you might be creating for yourself. She is nonjudgmental and extremely supportive and encouraging. I initially thought I would sign up for one three month contract (12 weeks). I voluntarily signed up for a second three month contract, and now I work with her on a once a month basis. I consider her more than a financial coach; she has become a trusted friend, with whom I willingly share other life concerns.
Mala’s fee is very reasonable—and it is truly a worthwhile investment! The return is remarkable!!!!
P.S. Although I can technically retire today, fairly comfortably…..I am going to continue working for three more years. It is nice to know, though, that I can change my mind at any point and be okay financially.
