Under a mountain of debt?

Common Frustrations Surrounding Your Money and Debt
Your finances are always on the back burner. You don’t consider it important because shit, you make good money—more than the average American.
Lack of Knowledge
You feel like you suck at numbers and budgeting. You don’t know when and how to save, especially with a fluctuating paycheck. You feel like you don’t fully understand your debt and what you’re doing currently is barely making a dent.
You sense that sometimes you overspend in certain areas, but you’re not sure where. Other times, you feel like, “WTF?” It feels like your money disappears each month and that’s a huge frustration.
A Fun Life Takes Money
You don’t want to miss out on happy hours, vacations with friends, the latest sale at Nordstrom’s or placing another Amazon order. Your lifestyle takes money and you don’t want to give that up.

We are about to have a baby and we knew we needed to get rid of the debt. Justine has guided us every step of the way and I’ve never felt like I was deprived of anything. When we make a decision, we go all in. In just two months of coaching, we paid off $7,000 in debt. Trusting Justine with our money conversation has helped us so much.Bart and Amelia
Justine walked us through our budget so that it was easy to understand. She was able to see how we justified expenses and got us in-line when we were making excuses. I felt very comfortable talking about debt without embarrassment and I think it has a lot to do with her demeanor. Great job!Cody and Lauren
I always had a good cushion of money in my bank account, but I never really budgeted before. After talking to Justine about getting rid of my student debt, I feel like I’m actually making progress! I made a $2,700 payment towards debt AND paid for a trip to Amsterdam in cash all because of Justine’s coaching. Do me a favor and hire her!Julia
