Has anyone ever told you, “Mind your own business”? Well, it’s Susan Greenhalgh’s business to “Mind Your Money.”

That’s the name of her new financial-coaching business. The Providence resident formed her own company in November to use her skills to help people achieve “financial peace of mind” – or even sock away enough money to live the good life.

She appears at community events and can counsel clients in their homes or other convenient locations. She also does videoconferencing sessions with clients.

In addition to a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Bryant University, Greenhalgh has more than 25 years of experience in business, most recently working as chief operating officer at Rhode Island Public Radio.

She offers $300 and $499 packages, as detailed on her website, www.mindyourmoneyllc.com. The sessions include personal-finance skills, checking and improving credit reports, determining net worth and eliminating debt.

She also negotiates hourly rates.

“Most of us didn’t learn how to manage our money at home or at school, so it’s important we get that training,” she said.
