“I would have never been able to be debt free in 9 months without mpowered”

At 13 years of age, Turea thought she had everything figured out. "I thought I could do it all myself and I started running around trying to act like a grownup, but in reality, I didn't know anything."  By the time she was 16, Turea was pregnant with her first child and felt clueless of how to be a good wife and mother.  After being abandoned while pregnant with her daughter and deep in debt, Turea started looking for help.

 

“You have to persevere. Don’t let the past destroy your future”

Khadijatu is no stranger to facing adversity.  She was pregnant the first time she was laid off from her job, which “started a whirlwind of financial issues.” When she was evicted again with her newborn, she knew it was time to move on and find a new path for her and her daughter.  Read on to find out how Khadijatu transformed her financial future and created a new life for her and her daughter.

 

 

 "I feel optimistic for the future, like I can contribute postitively to society."

Jasmine Douglas always knew that she had a talent for styling hair and capturing the beauty within her clients. It wasn’t until a death in the family and the loss of that job in 2014 that it dawned on her that she could follow her true passion and open up a business utilizing her skills as a stylist to rebuild her suddenly precarious financial situation. Read her story on how financial coaching helped this dream become a reality.

 

 

“Mentally and psychologically, I can think more clearly, and I can take better care of the girls because there is less stress.”

“It’s okay, he’ll be back soon,” was often repeated in Miriam Peña’s home starting in late 2008.  Miriam, her sister, her 3 nieces, and her mother were certain that their recently deported husband, stepdad and grandfather would be back.  Read Miriam's full story and find out how mpowered helped when the unexpected kept happening to her family.

 

 “There’s a lot more security and peace of mind now that the debt is gone.”

Angela Sasseville is an entrepreneur and the owner of Flourish Counseling and Coaching. Her business excels at providing a safe place for people to be vulnerable and discuss pressing personal issues. After 10 years in operation, Angela credits her business’ ability to grow to 6 employees in 2016 to the work she started in 2009 through mpowered’s Debt Management and Financial Coaching programs.  In a classic case of role reversal, she needed a safe place to be vulnerable and seek assistance with a personal issue: her family's financial situation. Read on to learn how Angela and her family came out stronger after tackling their debt burden.

 

 

          “Now I can dream again and that makes me feel happy and confident”

Rochelle Johnson is a fine artist, so she’s familiar with how a painting can progress from a blank canvas to a glorious masterpiece. She’s also keenly aware that a masterpiece requires a lot of time, energy, and effort to make it perfect. The same holds true for her personal finances – they haven’t always been perfect and she’s worked hard to get them where they are. Read her full story here and find out how 2 years of coaching helped her take control of her finances and dream again!

 

 

“My financial coach really helped me understand my payments so I could take care of my house and be a good neighbor.”

Magbe is a single mom that works two jobs because she’s decided that she doesn’t want to just get by, she wants to get ahead. When her family’s living situation became unbearable due to her neighbor’s constant smoking that irritated her son’s asthma and constant criminal activity in the neighborhood, Magbe took control and worked with Habitat for Humanity and mpowered to find a better situation for her and her family.

 

“The hardest thing for me to learn was finding the balance between worrying about debt and still enjoying life.”

Looking back on 27 years of business ownership, Jane Gallagher has plenty of stories to tell.  Ups and downs in business, amazing clients, and finding a way to make it work despite everything she's been through top the list when she's reminiscing.  One constant theme that has weaved throughout these peaks and valleys is her own journey with personal finance. Everything changed when she took the crucial step of engaging with a financial coach at mpowered.

    You assured me you could help me… and that is the day my miracle began. From August 2005 to February 2010 you [helped me pay off my debts] in the amount of $29,480! The further good thing was that my credit scores went way up. I am today considered a great credit risk. So not only do I thank you for getting me to that place, but for helping [me] figure out I did not ever need…
