Hey, I'm Alysse
I am the CEO & Founder of Saffron Money, money coach, soul surfer, earth lover, and I am passionate about making wealth creation accessible to all. I believe that with the right tools & guidance, everyone can see a path to a 7-figure portfolio.
The process is simple: financial education + financial plan + accountability partner
so you can learn exactly what to do and where to put your money for your present and future self.
After graduating from Cornell University, I went right to work in Investment Banking in San Francisco. And let me tell you, Wall Street is no joke - crazy hours, ridiculous expectations, deadlines, and oh... bro culture. If you want to find some Chads in monogramed Patagonia vests, look no further.
It wasn't all bad though, I worked with some incredibly talented people and received an amazing education about money and how our financial system & economy works.
I also learned that making money is not the same as keeping money. And thus, I decided early on that I wanted to generate some serious wealth for myself. It wasn't necessarily the money I was after, but rather the options money could provide.
After 5 years of the Wall Street grind, Maui happened....
I had the opportunity to visit Maui for a beautiful long weekend in March of 2018. As I was sitting on the beach with my red-eye flight back to San Francisco just hours away, I felt this overwhelming sensation that Maui was the place for me and the life I wanted to live. My soul felt satiated - I had never felt this way before, and was feeling I wasn't willing to give up.
So I did it.
The next day when I got back to the office, I gave my notice! It was scary to jump off the cliff, so to speak, but it was scarier to think of passing up the opportunity to find fulfillment. It also helped that my money was working for me and in a place that allowed me to take the plunge without further planning.
Two weeks later, I head back Maui and have been here ever since.
4 years later, I am still here - adventuring, surfing (if the waves are good), and helping women learn to be good with money so they can confidently take on the world.
