GAVE ME THE CONFIDENCE TO BELIEVE I AM NOT IN A BLACK HOLE
"At one point in my life, discussing finances, credit, and my debt was an uncomfortable topic. As a videographer, I remember filming content one day for Financial Footwork, and Coach Hill telling me a story that stuck with me ever since. Hillary shared a story about a Vegas trip gone all wrong, with the big takeaway being how one financial decision could set you back for months or even years from your goals.
This story really resonated with me because I had recently made a poor financial decision (that I was embarrassed to even admit), where I had spent too much money on a trip and new camera equipment. It affected my credit score so negatively that it went from 665 to 565 because of my minimal payments during the first couple of months of COVID lock-downs. Through talking with Hillary, she gave me the confidence to believe I wasn’t in a black hole and there was something that could be done.
Moving forward, I developed a new plan to tackle my debt and create better financial goals. Currently, I have a 702 score and my fear to talk about topics like credit and money are no longer there. I’m thankful for that story and talk with Hillary because it always reminds me that I can be one step closer to my financial goals, through diligence and responsible steps. "
