"It was fast! You don't realize how quick it goes by. I feel like I learned so much in such a little amount of time."

Shelby was always clear and cut what she needed from us. I would text her and she would text me back literally within 20 minutes. I never really came to class not knowing which direction we would go into. There was always a plan.

"Its time for me to give back to myself and appreciate myself a little more"

Just really need to focus on me and challenge my own self. It was myself vs me and understanding that it would take time for me to get better and grow.

The payment plan made a world of difference! It really changed the external factor of the money. It gave me a lot of peace of mind because I was able to spread out the payments.

It was very helpful allowing you to have flexibility around your other payments and your other bills.
