About Andrea Travillian - Founder Aspirify, Writer & Coach

​HI Welcome to my ​virtual home!


You are in the right place, ​if you are ready to get excited about your life again.

You may wonder how I can help? Let me share my story with you.

Grab a cup of coffee, a snack, sit back, relax and listen in.

My name is Andrea.

I​ have always been a Type-A, go hard all the time person. Who also always worked on becoming better.

​I was attending personal development workshops and retreats in high school!

​I thought I knew exactly who I was and what I wanted.

​Till life decided to show me otherwise!

​After years of learning who I am and how to be happy I now teach others to do the same. You can learn more about my journey here, or keep reading for how you can find out who you are!

​Self Discovery ​Process

​The three steps we will use to help you find yourself and start a new chapter in life.

Discover

​In this phase we dive into ​figuring out ​who you are today.  ​​You are no longer the same person you were when you started your career and family. We are continually changing. It is time to know the new you so you can create a life you actually want!

​Heal

​ In this phase we work on changing the negative patterns we discovered .​ Part of self discovery is realizing why we may keep making the same mistakes. Here we make ourselves better, honor what we are missing and make sure we don't keep making the same mistakes.

​Thrive

​In this phase we work to help you understand exactly what you want from the future. Then create plans to help you achieve them. This is not your traditional goal setting - this is goal setting basd on the new you.

​The "Professional" Bio

Did you hate confusing math problems in school? Do you hate dumb jokes?

Well, I have a combo for you.

A wealth coach, a wedding planner, a former expat, and a​n ​self discovery coach walk into a bar. The order going to the bartender is a vodka tonic. Who had the cocktail?

All of them, because they were all the same person, ​me!

Yes, I have been a wealth coach, a wedding planner, ​I lived overseas (Australia), and am now an emotional/spiritual coach. ​

​Now dumb jokes aside here are the formal details of my life:

​My official training is in finance with a degree from the University of Iowa. Upon completion I worked the following (in both the US and Australia):

  • Banking - as a teller, assistant manager and back office operations.
  • Mortgage origination
  • Corporate finance - budgeting and forecasts
  • Taxes - one season at HR Block and I was forever indebted to my CPA for being amazing at what he does.
  • Retirement investing - back office while working in Australia for a superannuation company.

During this time I also completed my MBA from Creighton University.

In 2002 I left the corporate world, because I was tired of being micro-managed and started an event planning company. (Because I wanted to micro-manage others!)

This was a natural jump for me because not only was I a natural planner. But while in school I did about every hospitality job to pay the bills. From bar-tending, to waiting tables to being a restaurant manager. Plus I am not your typical finance person and I can talk to just about anyone - I love being social!

While loving the event planning world the hours did not fit my family goals. Thus in 2007, I planned my final wedding and opened a bookkeeping business.

That bookkeeping business morphed into a wealth coaching business for small business owners.

Along the way I got my coaching certificate, from the International Coaching Academy.

In 2017 after a series of major transitions that pushed me to rediscover myself. I decided it was time to assist others in ​finding themselves. ​So they too could feel as excited about their future as I do mine.

That is when Aspirify, Inc. was born.
