Budget 101 Testimonials

“It helped me get out of $15,000 in credit card debt.”

“It took me a while to get the hang of sticking to the budget. But now I have been stricter with myself and have been good about updating my budget.”

“This class was great for understanding budgeting is not scary and helpful once you try. It helped me understand what I was spending and be mindful of where I wanted that money. My personal “why.”

“I would love it if more people could take this course.”

“I strongly recommend this class to anyone with any debt or dislikes their relationship with money. Learning to do a zero-based personal budget is a valuable life skill. This class can help people of any age or income level achieve financial goals that may have previously seemed impossible.”
