As a traditional financial consultant for over 30 years, Jane Honeck CPA, PFS counseled individuals and business at Honeck-O’Toole Certified Public Accountants. Jane founded the firm in 1982 after working for a Big 8 accounting firm in Portland, ME. With a desire to be more than the typical accounting firm, Honeck-O’Toole focused on building relationships.
In just a few short years, the accounting firm became a highly respected and very successful practice. Jane’s expertise and experience allowed her to follow the career path of many of her peers and she developed financial workshops with the intent of expanding her client base and providing even more services to her existing clients. On the surface she was exactly where she needed to be. But, for Jane Honeck, it wasn’t where she wanted to be at all. She realized more and more that solving money problems and creating a healthy financial dynamic was more than just what we do with our money. She knew there had to be more to it than just providing the customary financial services.
By this time, Jane had already experienced the benefits of relationship building and the proverbial light bulb went on in her head. She charted a new course for herself and her clients. She trained under empowerment pioneers, Gail Straub and David Gershon and became a Certified Empowerment Trainer with the Empowerment Institute of New York. From there, she developed new and more specific programs to help her clients. The programs combined her extensive money management experience with her in-depth awareness of human consciousness and reflected her passion for helping clients discover the money beliefs that underlie their relationship with money.
Jane knew that teaching the mechanics of money was not enough to move them toward long-term financial change. She knew the solution was in mastering the why: the unexamined beliefs that drive our financial lives. Recognizing the importance of this work, she wrote her award-winning and internationally published book, The Problem With Money? It’s Not About the Money!
Recognizing that all areas of our lives are affected by these same beliefs, she works with a broad spectrum of issues to help individuals, couples, families and businesses get positive outcomes with their decisions by leading with their values. Her depth of experience, range of knowledge and open-minded explorations provide meaningful insight as clients explore different perspectives and new opportunities.
Jane deepened her knowledge of human behavior and the change process through various programs at the Gestalt International Study Center in Cape Cod. Through their program she became a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as well as a GISC Certified Coach. She is currently a Professional Associate at the Center.
Jane’s extended family keeps her life full. With three sons of her own, four step-children with partners and eight step-grandchildren, there are always plenty of life’s lessons and opportunities. Jane and her husband Wayne live in Freeport, Maine where Jane works as a Money Coach, Personal Financial Specialist and CPA.
