I bought into a partnership, and a year after, a year and a half, it fizzled. She had maxed up the store’s credit card and definitely left me with a mess to struggle with the debt. It was, it was overwhelming when we were, you know, constantly worried about, you know, how are we gonna buy inventory? How are we gonna pay, you know, this bill and that bill? And, and it just feels, it’s embarrassing really, to feel like you have all this debt and you don’t know how you’re gonna dig your way out, and you’re constantly worried, well, how much longer am I gonna be able to stay open? 

Life Changing Financial Education, Support, and Strategy For Her Small Business

When I first saw Jamie online, just her spirit of compassion, and you could tell she had a genuine sense of wanting to serve people, Jamie just shared information in a way that was like common language. It wasn’t the, you know, you think about the financial mentors, the accountant, big accountants, and they had use all these big words that are not easy to understand if you’re not well informed or well versed in those terms.

And she just spoke to you, to us through the computer as if she were a friend. Right across the table at a, at a coffee shop. She gives you these Excel spreadsheets that are all set up and she has them color coded so that you know exactly where to enter. She has instructions. You just plug in your numbers and then it does magic.

What surprised me the most was how quickly I was able to implement everything and see results. It became fun at the end of the month to do the numbers. The first month I rolled money over, I was like, wow, you know, I have money in my profit account. 

After taking the the class, I definitely felt more confident. We’ve paid down the credit card by half, and so that gives us a lot more buying power. And we have money in the bank that we didn’t have before. 

Hands down, don’t even think about it. Just do it. Just do it because it’ll be worth every penny that you pay for it, and it will pay for itself. And the proof in that is we just moved my boutique to a better location.

I know that, that this move is in thanks to Jamie’s class.
