So, #whathadhappenedwas... Over the past fifteen years, I noticed a pattern with clients complaining each year that they didn't understand why they were struggling financially. Folks with income ranging from $10,000 to $400,000 a year shared the same story of living from paycheck to paycheck. I call them the secret poor...

I have always been pretty good with managing my personal finances, but I have to admit that there was a time in my life when I went against my better judgement and started ballin’. I figured out how to get back on track financially and decided that I should share my story with my clients.

Ten years ago, I selected a small group of my clients with whom to share my story. I gave them the steps that I took to get back on track and asked them to keep in touch with me during the process. A year later, each participant told me that my talk significantly changed their life! I am proud to report that they are ALL now home owners and they all have a minimum of two years of what I call “what it costs you to be you each month” in the bank!

I decided to finally sit down and formally write about my journey. I am now ready to share my story with everyone! My book, Crawl Before You Ball, will be available in January 2016! We are starting pre-sales of the book now.
