Does your life and financial plan reflect your Childfree future?

I help you learn how to live a life of Childfree Wealth.  Childfree Wealth means you have the Time, Money and Freedom to achieve your dreams.  Do you want help with your life and financial planning?

Manage your money

Invest in your future

Achieve your dreams

Most of us never learned how to manage our money


Not knowing how to manage our money is costing us both dollars and peace of mind.

Your finances keep you up at night


You keep earning more but have nothing to show for it

Your finances are hurting your loved ones

You have paid ‘experts’ for ‘help’ but they don’t understand the childfree lifestyle

You need help investing but don’t know where to start

You want to retire but don’t know if you ever will be able to.

You deserve to learn how to manage your money.

Meet Dr Jay Zigmont, CFP® 

My wife and I are childfree. I know that the ‘standard’ financial planning advice doesn’t fit a Childfree lifestyle.  Your choices are different and need to be valued. 

I grew up broke.  I was never taught how to manage money.  I earned my first million by the time I was 21 and spent it before I was 25.

It wasn’t until much later that I learned how to manage and invest my money.  I know you can learn how to manage your money and invest.

I have been a coach in all areas of life and business for over a decade.  I have a PhD in Adult Learning from the University of Connecticut and I am a Fee-Only, Advice-Only, Fiduciary, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and Childfree Wealth Specialist.  I am the author of the book Portraits of Childfree Wealth.

The bottom line is I have the experience and training to help you learn how to manage their money and achieve financial freedom.

3 Simple Steps to 

Financial Freedom

When you learn how to make your money work for you, it will get you from where you are to where you want to be.

1. Schedule a Meeting

  You tell me about where you are and where you want to go (what your goals are). 


2. We work together on a plan

We develop and implement a  financial plan to guide you on the path to your goals.

3. You achieve financial freedom

Sleep easy knowing you are doing the right things to secure your financial future.

My Promise to You

I am a Fiduciary and Fee-Only

I am legally bound to put your interest ahead of my own.  I keep things simple.  No surprise or hidden fees.  The only thing I charge for is my time, and I only get paid by you.

I am Childfree

I know that being childfree means different choices for you and your loved ones.  Your goals and needs are different.  

You are in charge

You decide what to do with your money.  I’m not taking control.  You invest, your way.  I provide Advice-Only.

You will learn

You will learn how to manage your money and I will be at your side along the way.

A year from now, where will you be?

You have a choice.  A year from now you can be deeper in debt and making progress in the wrong direction.  Or you can sleeping soundly knowing you are on your way to financial freedom. 
Taking the first step may be the hardest, but it is worth it.

How it works.

 Here’s what you get:

  • The first meeting is completely free.  The goal is to get to know each other and see if I can help you.  No pressure, just a chance to talk about where you are and where you want to go.
  • We meet for an hour via Zoom.
  • If it is a fit, you get signed up.  Monthly retainers start at $500 per month.
  • The monthly retainer includes up to an hour meeting via Zoom, access to our Right Capital software for financial management, and ongoing support via email.  (You schedule meetings as needed, but they cannot be ‘carried over’.)
  • We follow our unique, iterative, Modular Financial Planning Process
  • If you have a special project you need me to do above and beyond the monthly retainer, (or would just like to book an hour) I charge $500 per hour.  No surprises, you tell me when you need more.
