“As a young professional, Purse Strings helped me learn more about my financial state. I recently graduated from college and started earning a salary. This was a very helpful course for me to better understand where all my money is going and how much I should be saving every month for financial success in the future. This is an amazing community of women and I know where I can go to have all my questions answered related to finance or to make sure I’m set up. I feel very supported.”

“I learned a lot about the basics of finances. We went line by line through our paycheck and looked at all the deductions, so I know where my money is being allocated. I recommend this course for anyone who needs an understanding of the basics of money and a better understanding of what’s going on in their financial world.”

Oh my gosh! I just read your newsletter and then went onto the link for Purchasing a Home. I learned a ton and as a former attorney with realtors and mortgage bankers for siblings, I thought I was already well-versed in the subject. The site is friendly, professional and encouraging.
