Clients who are no longer worried about money . . .
I've had the pleasure of coaching some amazing humans. Through their willingness to focus on their financial wellness and their desire to live more intentionally, they have accomplished more than they imagined possible. They inspire me.
The first thing I did after paying off the final chunk of massive and embarrassing amount of credit card debt, was to send a picture of my cut-up credit card to Terri. I can personally recommend Terri as a supportive and friendly counselor who helps without judgment. She encouraged me to make small victories - save a $1000 emergency fund and pay off smallest debts first - so that I could build momentum toward bigger financial goals. As a result of her counseling, I do not have a credit card in my wallet, I am consumer debt free, and I am on my way to building a six-month emergency fund!
When I started this journey, I had consumer debt of $59,200. In three years I am within $3,300 of paying off my final debt except my house, which will be paid in full in six years!
I had kept a “loose” budget and was always over-extended at month-end, which left me less money for the following month. I told myself there was no way that I would be able to find extra money in my budget to pay off $59,200. I believed that because I was single, that the goal of paying off my debts would be virtually impossible. I came to believe that I had nothing to lose and potentially everything to gain.
After living with financial intention for a little while I felt disappointed that I hadn’t found this way of living sooner. I’ve since realized that it’s never too late to start on this journey! I have hope for my future which I never would’ve had had I not found this way of life. So thank you, Terri, for your unwavering support and for introducing me to this incredible way of living with intention. This has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself and my future.
I was juggling ~5K of revolving credit card debt and a hefty student loan balance (only having 25% paid off in 9 years). Personal finance is not taught in most schools and debt is a societal norm. I knew how to pay my bills and charge everything else. It never really occurred to me that I could choose to live and spend differently! Terri’s authentic and encouraging approach empowers you to make intentional changes. She’s like a financial Jiminy Cricket! She’s been in your shoes and knows what a difference sacrifice and planning make. One year later and I’m credit card debt free and making a real dent on my student loan balance. Purchasing my first home and investing are next up. Time is on my side and with Terri’s support and guidance, I will continue to reach new horizons!

I was turning 50, was recently divorced, and starting to panic about not having a financial plan for my future. What is it about turning 50 that starts you thinking about things you didn't think about at 49?
I got intentional. I got focused.
I followed a simple plan (and my heart), worked hard, paid off a giant chunk of debt, and saved a six-month emergency fund - in two years.
I felt empowered. I felt relieved.
