I started working with Steven last year around the time I established my New Year’s resolutions and have since reached 2 of 3 financial goals I set in January. The first was buying a house, and the second was buying a car. At the time, I didn’t actually believe I’d reach these goals during the year, however, Steven helped me establish a plan for monitoring my finances that worked. After a few consultations, I had a much better grasp on where my money was going and the newfound clarity made planning for the future much easier!
