Teacher Comments

It was excellent & very informative. I feel personally & professionally empowered. Thanks!
It was great! Thanks for everything! We hope we can make a difference!
The importance of a financial plan-even when there are very little assets involved.
Unlike some workshops, I was never bored or sleepy & time just zoomed by!
Great workshop! It gives a model to take to the classroom.
