The Financial Guides were founded by Tammy Johnston, as financial advisors who take a holistic approach to working with their clients. With over 19 years of experience in the financial services industry, Tammy focuses on first educating her clients on how money works and how to ask questions. Through many years of hearing students in the Financial Journeys class ask where were you when I was a kid, and do you have anything that I can use to teach my children, Tammy came up with the concept of Financial Foundations. The first set of four is currently available for ordering with the second set scheduled for late 2012.

As part of their commitment to supporting good works and charity, $10 from the set of every book is going to charity. For direct sales the $10 donation goes to World Vision Canada, Tammy Johnston’s favourite charity. For sales made through charity websites and email mail outs, the money goes to the sending charity.

Tammy Johnston

Tammy started working in the Financial Services Industry in 1993. The first 9 years of her career were spent working in regional offices, for independent agents, and as Brokerage Manager for two different MGAs. Her focus was on training other agents and helping them solve problems for clients. After spending close to a decade as an employee Tammy decided to venture into the “sales world”. Determined to be more than just another insurance salesman, Tammy founded The Financial Guides. She set about working with clients in a totally different fashion. Feeling that everyone needs a sound financial education she created her first class “Financial Journeys”. The goal was to provide the accurate, unbiased, basic information in simple English that we all require, but can’t easily find. Knowing that the best way to learn is by having fun and being comfortable, Tammy takes good care of her guests with excellent food and lots of laughter. Further expanding her educational and value added offerings Tammy created “Sandwich Safaris”, “Business Builder Nights”, “Small Business Class”, and "FInancial Journeys Summer Camp". Putting time and care into helping with the necessary tasks required to run a successful financial household Tammy works with clients to set up budgets that actually work, reviews credit and debt to make sure it is working for the client and not just against, and makes sure all the pieces of the puzzle fit together properly. Knowing that all financial aspects affect one another she looks at the whole picture. Honestly tells you what is working, what could be improved, and what is missing. Tammy’s clients understand what they are doing, why they are doing it, and have hope for the future. The newest project by The Finanical Guides is our Childrens' Financial Book Series.
