the puzzle pieces

the "puzzle pieces"






"I'll do a better job managing my money next month!"  Does this sound familiar?


Have you started budgeting only to find yourself abandoning your plans mid-month?

Does it seem your student loan is consuming your paycheck?  Perhaps, your use of credit cards has become a frequent practice and you want to stop charging.


Life sometimes throws us a curve, such as a life event or family circumstance. Perhaps 

you find yourself "in charge of" bills and finances for the first time.


Some of us say, "It's better that I not chart the total amounts owed on my credit cards.  Looking at each balance separately seems more manageable!"


Are you unsure as to "how" to begin, so you simply don't think about it?


You are not alone!  


Take your first step today.

Do any of these statements sound familiar?

  • "I'll feel better if I have a new outfit for the occasion."

  • "I don't feel good in any of my clothes.  I am just going to buy a few things!"

  • "This is an incredible sale!  I can't afford not to buy it!"

  • "Life is challenging right now.  I'll feel better if I go shopping."

  • Are you connecting self worth with things, as opposed to relationships?

  • Is your closet filled with clothes, but you believe you have nothing to wear?

  • Is the latest tech gadget too tempting to ignore?

Do you find yourself too ashamed to talk with anyone about your debt?  Does your debt leave you feeling "less than" when thinking about what you have to offer those around you?   You are not alone!
