About the Instructor:
Jennifer Strimbeck: started my debt-free journey like many of you. I had done a fair amount of things with money that I explained away with one circumstance or another. The truth was I was not willing to see that, I was the problem, that every day I had choices I had to make to either help or hurt my family and the goals we had to win.
I had tried several things in the past to dig out of the hole I was in. I used debt consolidation only to go back to the cards I had “paid off”. I had gone to the websites to find coupons and fill out surveys to try to pinch the pennies. All the while I was missing the big picture. I was not paying attention to where my money was going instead, I was chasing more money coming in and not paying attention to where it was slipping away from me.
At the start of my journey, I had $78,559.54 in consumer debt plus my mortgage. In my past, I had used common methods for reducing debt that most think are smart money decisions. I had used debt consolidation before and ended up reusing the cards I had “paid off” and got myself in more of a pickle. Feeling overwhelmed and not knowing where to turn, I had to find a new path. I finally got to a breaking point and found another program. I found a plan and worked my way out of the debt my family was in. Now I take that passion to help others find their way out of their struggles. In 2016, I started teaching others the program that I followed that helped me to pay off my debts in 18 short months. At the start of 2018, I became certified as a Ramsey Preferred Coach.
Giving others the peace of financial freedom and giving others the capability to give themselves a better tomorrow is my goal.
