Leslie Callison: Financial Coach and Professional Organizer serving southwest Missouri

Leslie Callison



For many people, the burden of unmanaged finances and the burden of stuff create an overwhelming sense of anxiety, perhaps guilt and shame, and a loss of where to start to correct the problem(s). 

This is where Unburdened steps in. My goal is to provide instruction, strategy, and accountability for those needing help with basic financial management issues and/or clutter and organization issues that lead clients to a place of peace with, control over, and freedom with their money and their belongings.

Organizing: Physical Spaces

If your mind is not at rest in your home, that is a problem. 

Your home is meant to be a haven and a respite from the world. If it isn't, let me help. Decluttering can change your life and can release a weight that has been dragging you down physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.Doesn't matter if it's a junk drawer or a garage--I've worked projects of all sizes--and I'm ready to help you reduce the overwhelm!

Organizing: Photos & Videos

What good are photos and videos if no one ever sees them? 

You have boxes, phones, and old camera cards  full of photos that you have no idea what to do with. Or maybe videos that are on outdated technology so that no one in your family has seen them in years.  

I can organize both print and digital photos, curating them in a way that they can be enjoyed now and years from now as they are passed through the generations. This could include organization of the physical photos, scanning and digitizing physical photos, and creating physical products such as a photo book.

I can also convert VHS tapes and the old 8mm reels to digital format (if the reels are in good condition), so old home movies can once again be viewed and enjoyed.

Organizing: Finances

Are you controlling your money or is your money controlling you?

I can help provide clarity on your financial situation and help you develop a strategy to remove financial stress, which may include establishing savings, paying down debt, and/or setting up a system for managing income and expenses. We will go beyond the numbers, looking at your values and goals to make sure the way you are using your money aligns with those things. This is different from working with a financial advisor. I cannot legally offer investment advice, but working with me will set you up to reach a place where you are ready to sit down with an advisor and discuss building your wealth.

About Me

For nearly 16 years, I had the privilege of serving as a high school educator, and I truly loved teaching. When I was ready to transition out of the classroom, I realized that educating others wasn't something I could give up. Now, however, I can focus my teacher heart entirely on the things that truly bring joy, peace and freedom to my life--finances and organizing--and help others bring that same joy, peace and freedom to their lives.
