Frequently Asked Questions
If you are thinking about starting to make your money work better for you, why NOT now?
People let me know they pay off their credit cards, set up their first savings accounts and fill them to four-digits, and “magically” find the money to their teeth fixed after! (Trust me, it’s not magic, it’s intention and motivation.)
What's kept you from starting your money journey? I'd love to be the kickstarter to your engine and signing up for a paid class is a GREAT motivator. As they say: when we pay, we pay attention.
Plus, the earlier you start to pay down debt and save -- the more resources you have. It's really that simple.
