“Our society has a giant problem: most people are financially illiterate. And it’s not even their fault. Because we don’t learn how to manage money as kids, we are easily convinced by corporations to go into debt as young adults—buying things we don’t need, with money we don’t have, to impress people we don’t like.
Then we spend years mired in the mess we’ve made: credit-card debt, student loans, car payments, and the myriad other ways we borrow from our future. The average indebted American household has $97,775 in non-mortgage debt. Gross! But if we can teach students to stay out of debt, we can end the suffering that is compounded by debt.”

There are two truths you should know if you find yourself currently under a crushing amount of debt: 1. You do not need to perpetuate this burden on your children, or even your children’s children; 2. You do not need to suffer in silence or alone.
There is an undeniable disparity in the way that handling finances is taught in schools, and often times people find themselves in trouble long before they realize that there is a better way to handle their money.
My team and I are committed to helping alleviate the financial burden felt by our clients immediately, and helping to give them the tools to build a better future for themselves and their families.
