Hey, I'm Alysse
I am the Founder of Saffron Money, money coach, soul surfer, earth lover, and I am passionate about making wealth creation accessible to all. I vehemently believe that with the right tools & guidance, everyone can create 7-figure wealth. And that's what we do.
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 having 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 was overcome by this overwhelming feeling 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 hard for me and in a place that allowed me to take the plunge without further planning.
Two weeks later, I fly back to Maui and have been here ever since.
4+ years later, I am still here - adventuring, surfing, and helping women learn to be good with money so they can confidently take on the world.
