My Real Story

In 2006, my life came to a grinding halt. I was hit by a car and in a flash my whole life as I knew it was over. I faced a 5-year recovery and my biggest fear was realized, I was dependent. I didn’t know if I would ever work again, I only knew that I would never return to the only career I knew. This was when I realized that the only way to get through this was to remember all of the lessons I had learned growing up, and I had to start with the numbers.

My parents instilled in me from a young age how important it was as a woman to be financially independent, work hard, and do whatever it takes to always be able to take care of myself.

About Holly Wallis

I LOVE numbers, especially in the form of money. I crave order, patterns and predictability, and numbers never fail to deliver. When I look at the numbers, I am in control. I see choice and endless possibilities. This is a long-engrained passion for me. One I didn’t really realize until much later, but I remember the day it started like it was yesterday.

My Dad, an accountant, was in the basement of our house at a little desk in a dark corner doing the books for my Grandfather’s business. I saw grids and lists and so many numbers organized neatly in columns, I was instantly intrigued. I asked what he was doing and he explained to me the importance of keeping track of the money going in and money going out. He handed me an extra ledger book that he had, and from that moment, I was hooked. I kept track of my weekly allowance and recorded the receipts from the money I spent at the toy store downtown.

What I learned that day led me towards my marketing career where I was responsible for managing a $100 million budget right down to the penny, and I loved every second of it, so much that I pursued a degree in Business Management.

These lessons were invaluable when I started my first business and after years of budgeting, planning and saving, I opened my own brick-and-mortar location. Overnight, I assumed all the risk and the responsibility of tens of thousands of dollars a month in expenses and a team of staff that depended on me for their livelihood.

I believed then that to play this new and completely foreign role of leader I had to work the hardest and I wore that like a badge of honor; after all, lead by example. I ran myself ragged trying to prove myself and it was never enough. I was still asked for more.

I gave everything I had to my business and the people in it, including my own paycheck, for years. I was terrified that people would think that I was taking more than I was worth. In my mind, I had no value, I had no control, and I had no idea what I was doing.

I realized at that moment that it didn’t matter how much I gave, I wasn’t giving the right thing. I wasn’t being true to who I am or what was most important to me. At that point, I didn’t even know who I was anymore and nothing seemed important. I had the opportunity to start from scratch, and the only way I knew how to do that was to put pen to paper and get crystal clear on where I was at that moment, and it started with the numbers.

Throughout my journey, I have discovered resilience and resourcefulness that I never knew I had. I was faced with the choice to either give up or reinvent my life into whatever I could possibly imagine for myself and so I did over and over. When life gives you lemons, make money.

I started my own business and it has grown exponentially year after year. It still does, and so have I. It is not a fluke, I planned it this way. Although I got lost for a while, doubted myself at every turn, and made every mistake in the book, I learned that I can always trust the numbers and my instincts, and be confident in my financial independence.

Along with my knack for numbers, I have channeled my passion for sharing knowledge, being curious, and discovering possibilities when all is lost into my coaching program to help women close their money knowledge gap so they can get ahead of their finances and reclaim control of their lives with financial independence and security.
