Thank You!

“Hi everybody, my name is Christine and I just wanted to tell you all that I enjoyed Debra’s class. She speaks English where you can clearly understand it, even anyone that doesn’t understand ‘financial.’ Where to invest, what to do with your money and not to waste it as a widow, she tells you everything that you need to do. She’s great.”

- Christine

“Hi, Debra’s presentation was very clear, she had good materials, she had a wonderful PowerPoint. I’m a teacher and so I very much appreciate when someone can clearly teach, explain, and give examples that really clarify what her point was, and it made me want to talk with her on a personal basis after the presentation.”

- Kim

“Hi, I’m Melissa. I attended Debra’s class and I found it to be really, really informative and empowering. She didn’t talk ‘money,’ unlike my financial planner that I currently have. So, yeah, I would recommend this to everybody. We all deserve to know the truth about money and Debra does just that! Thanks a lot.”
