What Is Financial Wellness?
Does this all sound too good to be true?
I can assure you it’s not. After getting out of the Army, Susie worked for Army Community Service as a budget counselor and financial educator. Helping soldiers and their families become free from debt and start saving for the future became a passion of hers.
After many years of living what she was teaching, she was still hit with the overwhelming consequences of a fallen market which led to them “just staying afloat” like so many Americans. After a series of bad choices, the downturn in the housing market and a longer than expected time to find a job took, Susie and Shane found themselves wiped of their savings and the bonus Susie received from the Army that was supposed to be invested. This cycle continued for many years and they were heart broken – seeing their bonus checks year after year going to either paying off debt or trying to keep up with the Jones’.
Then in 2016, they received some wise counsel changing their future financial trajectory! Susie and her husband Shane took a class that saved their future called Financial Peace. This course, once again, changed their perspective on money. They started making monthly budgets and took control back over their money – telling their money where to go! From there, they worked their way out of $35,000+ worth of debt in under 14 months! Susie and Shane started to build a solid plan to live their best life in retirement and ensure their son’s future.
Susie is now a certified budget & personal finance coach. She received the Ramsey Solutions Master Financial Coach designation in 2022. Having the experience and knowledge, Susie would love to pass it on to you!
