How may I help you achieve your goals today? I want to help take the fear out of dealing with Money. Sometimes it’s hard to talk about it with your Spouse or Family. Friends and family are notorious for giving out bad financial advice. After all, most people probably learned their habits and what they know from them. Talking to a professional, non-biased, non-commissioned financial coach may be just what you need.

Warning: You're About to Discover the Path to Financial Freedom

Are you stressed out about Money?  

Financial Education and a Plan is the Key that Unlocks Your Financial Freedom  

"Everyone is born rich.  Sometimes we're just a little short of cash." - Bob Proctor

 Hi my name is Joe Gonzales, and I'm a Certified Financial Education Instructor, and I have been involved with Finance and Banking for almost 30 years.  Over that time, I've had some success, and some failures. My experiences (OK Failures), made me study much more and I found out what I was doing wrong for so many years.  

In my own small business which I formed after I left banking, I realized that I was usually talking a different language than others.  And that's when it hit me....... People have NOT been educated in the Financial world, and it may be the most important skill we possess.  I realized that if everyone was always working so hard, but then somebody else was always taking advantage of what they didn't know, it may be impossible to get ahead.   SOMEBODY ELSE WOULD ALWAYS BE TAKING THEIR MONEY!   

I didn't always feel this way though
I remember when I was a teenager.  I wanted to be a banker.  My friend's dad was a banker, and he was a big and powerful guy, a former NFL football player.  He was smart, and everyone admired him, including me.

After high school, I decided to pursue my Finance degree in College at Bowling Green State University in Northern Ohio.   I graduated with honors in 1991, and I landed my dream job in Corporate Banking just as we were emerging from a real estate recession from the late 80's.    

Or so I thought it was my dream job!  

Major Lesson #1  -  

My career was going well up until 1999.  I was making decent money.  In fact, I made my first six figures out on my own in 1999.  Life was great.     

I was saving money.  I was paying off my credit cards.  I thought I was doing everything right.  

Then BOOM -  ​the roaring 90's came to a screeching halt with the Dot Com crisis and the Russian bond crisis (sound foreign to you?).  The stock market plummeted, and the financial markets went into turmoil.  
The company I was working for as a commercial real estate broker ended up going bankrupt. People were without jobs virtually overnight in the commercial real estate industry because of movements in the Treasury bond market (government securities - the safe bets supposedly).   
After feeling so good about making and saving my first big chunk of money (to me at the time), I lost just about everything!  

​I had been taking investment advice from my buddy from high school who worked for Merrill Lynch as a Broker.

Heck, what did I know?  Why not give my business to a friend?  But did he have the experience at 28 to be managing other people's portfolio??   Or was he just trained in sales and what to say?  ​

I got greedy with the Dot Com stocks.  I even rolled over a 401(k) into an IRA with him since I changed jobs.  
After all, the market just kept going up and up right?  

​How could I lose?  

After all, he was giving me advice on their stocks right?   They knew what to do right?  

​Well when the market crashed, and our stock prices kept falling, all I kept hearing was "Joe, you can't catch a falling knife."  

That means, you don't want to sell a stock.  Keep it for the long term.  It will bounce back.  

Hardly.  We rode those suckers down to Zero.  

Years later, Merrill Lynch would be fined hundreds of millions by the government for their actions in how they represented stocks to investors.   Do you think they work for you?  

Major Lesson #1 learned.  

Major Lesson #2  -  2001 to 2008 - time to rebuild.  

After my company collapsed in the financial crisis, I found myself back in commercial banking again.  

For the next 8 years or so, I worked hard on my career, and re-built what I lost and then some.  

At this point throughout my 30's, I'm working my butt off and getting promoted.  They're rewarding me with Stock Options and Bonuses and a nice paycheck.  

I'm doing my duties.  Saving money again. Spending it as well.  

Now I'm married.  Bigger house, fancier cars, more toys. 

Everything's going great again.  

Until -  

Lesson #2 Hits -   The Financial Crisis of 2008 - 2010 strikes the Housing and Banking industry.  

And the World as we know it nearly collapses.  

People lose their jobs. 

I nearly lose all my savings in 401(k), stock options, etc.  

My house (and everyone's) was collapsing in value.  
Luckily I wasn't in any significant debt other than my house and car.  

But Lesson #2 showed me that something major is going to happen every 7 - 12 years.   

By this time, I'm 40 years old.  I had worked 18 years making really good money.  

I wasn't in debt over my head.   I was saving money.  ​

But each time I got ahead, the market came and took it away.  

It was then I realized I must be doing something wrong.  

Or the market was fixed.  

Or both.  

At 40 years old I thought "If it's not working for me after 18 years in Corporate Banking, WHO CAN IT WORK FOR?" 

If a guy with a Finance degree, earning six figures consistently with little debt and 18 years of experience has trouble keeping money, then how does somebody who is making less money, or has less financial education manage to deal with their money? 

You see, it's NOT YOUR FAULT!    

My research and personal education process made me realize the System is rigged. 

Now all of a sudden, I started thinking of Banking differently. 

I realized the whole purpose of Banks and Brokerage firms is to move your money from your hands to their hands, and to move Debt from their hands to your hands!  

When I started to look at the world OPPOSITE of what I was taught, everything started to fall into place.  

You see, the friendly neighborhood Banker might be friendly, and he might be your friend, but he works for a Bank.  A FOR PROFIT institution.  Their whole purpose is to MAKE MONEY.  FROM YOU.

Most People Just Blindly Place Their Money in the Hands of "Professionals" 

We are taught to trust the bankers, the brokers, insurance agents, etc.  Don't get me wrong, the over-whelming majority of them are extremely nice and well-meaning people.  

But they WORK FOR SOMEONE ELSE USUALLY!  And that Company has to make all the profits they can.  

And many people haven't even learned how to properly budget, or understand the basics of using spreadsheets or all the fancy financial jargon, or just hate numbers!   If you're afraid of something, chances are you won't even look at it or deal with it.  

Guess what?  What we Fear the Most, we Need the Most.  ​

How Many Relationships Are Ruined by the Stress of Dealing with Family Finances?  

Remember that long form sales pages are about relating to your reader. Don't jump right in and start talking about your product.

Instead, tell a story. Write about how things feel. Write about problems, frustrations, experiences, triumphs. Think about a movie or TV series - it's all about the characters and how much you care about them. And you only care about them if you can relate to them.

​Trying to sell too soon is the most commonly made mistake - not only on long form sales pages. Even if your page is short and visual, without relating to your customer, you can't make sales.

Also remember that what you're looking at is only a template. Maybe you want to spend more time on the story. Maybe you want to add several more headline + text blocks, to really elaborate and evoke emotions. With Thrive, you can easily do so (just duplicate some of the existing blocks). Let the template inspire you, but don't let it limit you.

Using Image Sections to Add a Visual Element

Below is an example of a simple image section: use images or icons to illustrate a point you're making. This can assist in your story telling or be used to showcase features (although only if you use it further down the page, after the product reveal).

Keep it simple. You can use the icon feature in Content Builder for the images.

Don't over-explain in these text sections below each individual image.

Let the images do the talking. If something needs more explaining, add a text block below.

Get Your Points Across by Using Lists

  • Create a nice list of points here.
    What are the points about? Anything you want. This could be a summary of the page so far, for example (remember those scanners?).
  • Make your content easy to digest.
    You can think of the layouting/formatting task on a sales page in this way: the goal is to present nice, appetizing, bite-sized morsels for your reader. Don't hit them over the head with big words or long paragraphs. Make it easy and fun to experience your sales page.
  • Once you know this, you'll want my product.
    That's the result you should aim for with your content. Once your reader understands the story and all the points you've made, they will truly understand the value of your product (or service, or whatever you're selling).

In this Text Block, Start Transitioning to the Solution You're Offering...

You've set the scene. You've captured your visitors' attention. You've related to them and told them everything they need to know to truly understand what your product is about. Now it's time to start introducing them to the product.

Keep one thing in mind: your product is the solution. At first, don't talk about it in terms of a product. Talk about how you found a solution and about how this same solution can help others too. Why do all this? Because if you set it up right, you will be the opposite of the slimy, used car salesman stereotype we all despise... you will not be pushing product, you'll be doing everyone a favor.

Here is a Smaller Sub-Heading for Extra Emphasis

Try mixing paragraphs with sub-headings of two different sizes (H2 and H3). You can use smaller sub-headings like the one above to make an important point or for quotes that relate to your story.

Ever notice how non-fiction authors love to use quotes throughout their books? That's because quotes are a nice change of page and they lend authority and gravitas to what you're saying.

Similarly, you can use subtle text highlights, text boxes, short paragraphs, sub-headings and other text formatting to draw your reader's eye to important parts of the text. This also helps break up the page, to prevent wall-of-text-syndrome.​

This is Where the BIG REVEAL happens

Here it is: YOUR PRODUCT NAME

Now it's time to present your offer as the perfect solution to everything you've been talking about so far in your story.

While we were holding back before, it's now time to be very specific. Talk about your product, what it is, what your customer gets when they purchase. At this point, after all the buildup, your readers really want to know what you have to offer, so don't hold back.

  1. Show a product image: it's always a good idea to have a visual representation of your product. It makes it more tangible and more "real" in your reader's mind.
  2. The power of the points list: use this list to emphasize the most important benefits of your product.
  3. Benefits over features: for every feature your product has, try to translate it into a benefit (i.e. a positive end-result your customer will get).

What People Are Saying About Our Solution

“Customer testimonials are a powerful conversion element. Display them here to demonstrate that your product has many customers and that those customers are very happy with their purchase.

“Here's what the perfect testimonial looks like...”

“The perfect testimonial looks a lot like this one: it has a heading (this shows the best part of the testimonial), one or two paragraphs of text, an image, a name and (optionally) a role to go along with the name. Also note the use of quotation marks in the testimonial text.”

“Can you ever have too many testimonials?”

“It's a fair question: can you have too many testimonials?

The answer is: you can, but the problem is usually not the amount but the quality of the testimonials. If you have good, enthusiastic and real testimonials that mention specific details and benefits, don't shy away from adding 10, 15, 20 or even more to the page.

Just don't add a ton of boring or generic testimonials.”

A Few More Testimonials to Prove it Works for Real People

John Doe UI/UX Designer

“Keep displaying testimonials for social proof.”

“Here, we have a second testimonials section, right after the purchase section. Now that we've asked the reader to pull the trigger, they might feel some resistance and testimonials can help reassure them.”

We like to do what many others have done already. There's safety in numbers. Testimonials can be used to give your visitor that sense of safety."

Shane Melaugh
- Job Title or Role

“Pick the right kinds of testimonials to show here...”

“If you have any testimonials that include stories of how a customer had some doubts about your product, but was then won over by the high quality, your friendly support etc. those are perfect for displaying in this area of the sales page.”

About the Author

When selling online, it's easy to forget that people prefer buying things from other people. If there's any element of personal branding in your product, use this section to write a few paragraphs about yourself.

Keep it short, as this page is about your product, not your life story. But a few personal details mentioned here can help build rapport with your reader. It's a reminder that there's a real, trustworthy person behind this product and they aren't buying from a faceless corporation.

It's Time to Start Addressing Your Visitor's Last-Minute Objections

After the first call to action, use testimonials, case studies, more points lists and more text blocks to address all possible objections your visitors may have. Knowing these objections is very important... and you can learn all about them by talking to your customers and visitors. Give them a way to communicate with you and you'll quickly learn what's on your reader's mind as she goes through this page.

This part of the sales page can be a lot longer than it is in this template. There may be many objections that come up and you can address them all. If you dedicate a separate text block or a sub-heading to each one, your visitors can easily find the ones they have on their minds and skip the rest.

Use Sub-Headings Before Every Major Objection You Address

People are risk averse. We dread making a mistake and wasting our time and money on something that turns out to be rubbish. This is the part of the sales page where you can appease all those worries. One of the most important things you must learn about people in your market is what kinds of objections they have, so that you can effectively address them here.

Advantages vs Disadvantages

Here's a section that you can use for many purposes. For example, you can use it to showcase how your solution is better than other solutions out there. Or, compare the problems your reader is facing right now with the great solutions they'll enjoy once they purchase.

The Pros List

  • Proin arcu nulla, varius sit amet ligula ut, porta convallis dui.

About

Hello!  My name is Joe Gonzales, and I’m sick and tired of people being taken advantage of in the rigged financial world!  So I’m doing something about it based off of my own personal experiences.   Please see further below for my story and a little about me.  

Through my website, e-Learning Center, online, and personal consultations, my mission is to help adults who feel like they’ve been taken advantage of by the financial system and just can’t get ahead. I’m going to help you keep more of your hard-earned income while taking the fear and stress out of dealing with important financial issues.  

I will do this by providing tremendous value with my financial coaching and mentoring. My programs are an inexpensive, high value-add financial education process that can save you lots of money, time, frustration, and stress by simplifying things and guide you around the financial jargon and pitfalls and lead just about anyone to a fortune.

Joe and Tina Gonzales

Joe & Tina Gonzales

But WHY HIRE ME?  

Because I care, and I really want to help people.  I can and will, and you will see why if you keep reading.  

ABOUT ME:

First and foremost – I’m married to my beautiful wife Tina, and we have two grown married children Dustin and Haley, and their spouses Kristin and Jeff, and one grandchild, Ryan!  They are my reason for everything.

Technically speaking –  I have a Finance degree with honors from Bowling Green State University (Class of 1991).  I’m also a Certified Financial Education Instructor, from the National Financial Educators Council.
Professionally, I’ve spent the last 24+ years in the professional financial field.  I am a graduate of a Top 20 Bank Management Associate program; followed by 22 years of corporate banking and commercial real estate finance where I worked with local clients all the way to some of the largest real estate developers in the country.  I also at one point had personal signature authority for loans of up to $35 million, and have reviewed, approved, and put together hundreds of financial transactions worth billions of dollars.  Blah blah blah.  It’s just numbers.  But I do love finance and I’m proud of hard work.   

HOWEVER, that’s not why you should hire me.  

The reason you should hire me is because I’ve been where you are, and that’s why I care so much.   I’m just like everyone else.  And I want to help people avoid the mistakes I made that were so painful.  

I’ll venture to say that I’ve made more mistakes than most.  I’ve suffered, and I’ve learned from it, and I’m still learning.  

You see, just because I worked for a bank doesn’t mean I understood everything.  Finance is a complex world, full of different traps, pitfalls, and areas of expertise.

I may have gotten a little cocky at times.  And the financial world will take advantage of everyone.

They say that Money flows from dumb people to smarter people.

That’s how the rich get richer.  

Because they know how to work the System, and most of us don’t.  

I was dumb.  I made lots of mistakes, and lost lots of money.  The Dot Com crisis, the 2008 – 2010 Financial and Housing crisis, stock market panics, stock option losses, 401(k) mistakes, tax mistakes, spending habit mistakes, expensive toys, houses, cars, etc, along with all the fees and costs associated with everything.  These mistakes have probably cost me well over $1,000,000.  And losing that much money may be worth about $5 – $10,000,000 in terms of lost retirement nest eggs.  Painful to think about.  

But after my last big beating in the 2008 – 2010 era, I finally started doing something about it.  I decided to sell our dream house and cars and downsize our lifestyle and start over. 

I realized that no matter what I did, despite being a highly paid banker with 20+ years of experience, I still wasn’t getting ahead, and I kept losing my life savings in the stock market every 10 years!  This was after I was saving, had no credit card debt, was taking advantage of company matching in my 401(k) and doing what I thought was all the right things!

It was after I quit my job and went out on my own as a Broker and as an Entrepreneur that I started to figure things out.

Instead of working for a Bank, I was now out on my own, and started seeing things from a different perspective.

The perspective of “Why are they making all the money and I’m not?”

I started delving into reading.  Lots of books and self-study, seminars, documentaries, etc.
And I was figuring out how to re-build our life with my beautiful wife, who I had felt that I greatly disappointed and felt like less of a man when I lost our money.

But I’m happy to say, we’ve recovered pretty well over the last 7 years.

And I continue to learn every day.

I read.  And read.  And research.  To avoid the same mistakes.  

And because of what I have learned about myself and the importance of helping and serving others, I decided to turn pass on what I have learned to others.

I’m not a broker.  I don’t work for a Bank or Insurance company.  

I receive no commissions.   

I’m simply a consultant and financial coach to YOU, based solely on your personal goals.  

I’m your Advocate.  I work for nobody but YOU.  

And in this crazy financial System where everyone is taking advantage of people’s lack of financial skills and lack of financial education, you need somebody on your side to help guide you through that maize and make it easier on you.  

Every second of every day Money impacts our lives.  

We’re either making money or spending money every second.  

It affects your relationships, your marriage, your kids, your job, your future.

Yet people decide to not deal with it.

They put their statements in a drawer and avoid talking about it.  

And things just get worse that way.

Financial Mistakes, like interest, will keep compounding if we don’t deal with them.

We have to take the fear and stress out of dealing with Money.  

Banks and Brokerages are FOR PROFIT institutions.  

Remember what I said, Money moves from dumb to smart.  

Their Objective is to make money first and foremost.  

Off of people.  

Think about it.  

And then hire me to help you prepare for what’s coming.  

It will be among your best investments ever.  

I promise.  

I guarantee I’ll help you take the fear out of dealing with money and you’re return on investment in me will be worth hundreds of times more as you encounter things down the road of life.   

There is Hope and a Plan for your Future.  

Let’s Unlock it.
