The Power of Change
“I started as a client of 101 Financial in 2007. I had just gone through a difficult divorce and was at one of the lowest points in my life. For 25 years I was dependent on a husband, and suddenly I found myself at the helm ALONE, with five children who had yet to complete their college education.
I was at rock bottom, my confidence level was at an all-time low, and I was in debt way over my head with a credit score in the 500s. Then someone introduced me to 101 Financial. I was so ashamed, but he convinced me to give it a try. I will NEVER forget that turning point in my life. Thank you Jerry Jona and Lewis Lindsey for never giving up on me!
Not only did I discover a great system, I learned to THINK DIFFERENTLY. I learned to think progressively, to seek out fresh and innovative techniques, to juggle, to negotiate, to pay off debt, to set life goals and to strategize.
Today I am a CHANGED woman. The incredible power and confidence that came with 101 Financial has provided me with the ability to get my children to their college graduation and beyond. By the time my last child was a senior at LMU, tuition and expenses had capped $52,000 for one year, and I DID it, on an income of less than $35,000, all by myself! My oldest now has her own business, I have two Engineers, one Attorney, and my youngest child sells real estate.
101 Financial provided me with the skills that I so desperately needed in my time of despair. I consider it a milestone in my journey. The education is phenomenal, but moreover I am indebted for the change that occurred WITHIN myself, a person who today is much stronger and much more unconventional.
I have been able to conquer debt, outmaneuver the banks, and gift my children with a college education. But more importantly I have shown them that positive change can occur when we allow ourselves to be a catalyst for it. I’ve shown them what it means to overcome adversity, to face challenges with conviction, and to have the faith that God places people in your life for a reason. My life is a reminder to them to never doubt the power of self-reliance, and the possibilities that can be accomplished once you OPEN yourself to new thought processes!
Today I have the confidence in KNOWING that I can achieve whatever I set my mind to. I will NEVER go back to living in fear or to giving in to conformity. I am more determined and dedicated than ever to helping others and empowering them to achieve their goals. Today I am honored to assist countless parents and children with the financial aid process for college; not for financial reward, but to pay forward what has been afforded to me through the remarkable power of financial education and personal development!”
