As a daily money manager, it’s always a special treat for me to get a note from a client. People come to us for solutions to their personal finance challenges, and it often takes hard work on both our part and the client’s part. I relish the success stories, and I thought I take a moment to share one with you.
This client came with the burden of a large amount of credit card debt and wanted to get the debt cleared out. We worked on a long term budget. In order for the plan to be successful, the client had to stick to the budget for a couple of years. I believe the trick to being successful with the budges was to create a budget that wasn’t so stressful that it was destined to fail.
I recently heard from the client, and this is part of the note I received
“I just HAD to reach out to you today to let you know I am COMPLETELY DEBT FREE!!! I can’t begin to tell you what this feels like – to finally achieve financial freedom in the truest sense. I think I actually achieved that after you and I worked together. I finally stopped using my credit cards irresponsibly and implemented an austerity program to myself. It was all sooooo worth it. I created a sense of pide in myself by being responsible.
I have been waiting for this day for a long time – I knew when it came, you would be the first person I wanted to share it with. Liz, thank you so much for believing in me and helping me see my way to financial freedom. I consider it my good fortune I found you. Thank you.”
