Student Review on Financial Bootcamp for Engaged Couples:
A course that can save your relationship!
"When we enter into a relationship, we cannot believe that something like finances may affect or even destroy our engagement or even marriage. And it can. It happened to me once and, if I would’ve watched this course before that, I might have saved it. Taffy doesn’t try to sweeten reality or sell beautifully wrapped lectures with no value. She understands how financial problems and misunderstandings can affect a couple and gives practical, smart advice and tips about how to avoid them. I understood so many things about my financial habits and how they affect my partner, I feel like a veil was lifted from my eyes. I finally understand what went wrong with my first marriage and how easily I could have saved it. After watching the course, I talked to my boyfriend about our financial habits and we decided to keep separate accounts, not to take credits (at least not me…) and we found a better way to manage out money. We felt a lot better after clarifying all these aspects". Alexandra Moore

I've been happily married for 19+ years and have dealt with it all from coming into the marriage with financial baggage (from being homeless, having debt, spouse having filed bankruptcy in a previous marriage and me having to deal with the creditors calling), to having less than stellar credit, starting over establishing credit, buying a house, becoming parents, being audited by the IRS and more. I know what I am talking about when it comes to money and marriage.
I have counseled many couples when it comes to premarital financial counseling and they are succeeding. I want that for you to.
