Reach Your Financial Goals with Enrich
Whether you want to save more, pay down debt, or build toward a big financial goal, knowing where to start is often the hardest part. After all, most of us weren’t taught financial planning in school.

Get Personalized Results
Personal finance is personal. There is no one size fits all answer to reaching your personal finance goals, that’s why Enrich starts with a personalized assessment. By answering a few questions about your current money state, how you feel about your finances, and where you want to be, you’ll be on the path to better financial health.
With this quick check-up, you’ll get:
- Your financial situation assessed: A quick overview of where you’re at right now — and what motivates you.
- Recommended content: Skip the search time. We’ll drill down our library of free tools, courses, and content to deliver what will really help you reach your goals.
- A personalized action plan: Enrich works with you to build an actionable plan you can actually use.
Plus, completing the assessment and getting your results takes as little as five minutes.
Discover Your Financial Personality
Everyone sees money a little differently. Your life experiences, viewpoints, and even what you learned about finances as a kid all play a part in how you spend and save money.
The study of our beliefs about money that influence our spending and financial behaviors is called financial psychology — and understanding how your financial psychology works is key to reaching your goals. Through a quick assessment, Enrich can help you learn a lot about your unique money personality.
The assessment drills down to core topics like:
- Emotional responses
In a few quick minutes, you’ll be able to see not only what makes your money personality unique — but how you can use both your strengths and weaknesses to reach your goals.
