The Beyond The Green Story
AJ Schneider founded Beyond The Green in 2020 after coaching clients 1:1 for two years. She was inspired to start Beyond The Green after pulling herself out of debt and transforming her money mindset.
At the worst stage in AJ’s financial history, she was in $10k worth of credit card debt that had been sitting in collections for years, she hadn't touched her $34k worth of student loans, hadn't filed for taxes in 5 years which amounted to $10k and had started to accumulate $9k in debt to her family.
AJ was in constant fear when it came to money, and she felt hopeless and lost because of her financial situation. Finally ready to make a change, AJ reached out to family member who taught her how to budget and helped her transform her financial reality.
AJ started Beyond The Green because she knows how important it is to have a support system, and that is what she and the Financial Freedom Coaches will be for you. They will hold your hand and help you see the light at the end of the tunnel.
