Never once did Marissa make me feel guilty about how my finances looked…

All my life I have had people tell me “Start a retirement account, invest in stocks, have a plan.” Yet, no one ever showed me how or helped me start the process. I have been financially independent for 5 years, however I never truly knew what I was doing. I didn’t have a savings built up, I wasn’t using my credit card responsibly, and a culmination of other events led to true anxiety about my finances. I would refuse to look at my bank account just for the fear of the number I would see. When my friend gave me Marissa’s number and I met with her for the first time, I was beyond embarrassed. I thought, “There is no way she has dealt with anything this bad.” But she was exactly what I needed. Never once did Marissa make me feel guilty about how my finances looked. She just focused on moving forward, and it wasn’t nearly as bad as I made it seem. Now just 3 months later, my credit card debt is controlled, I have an investment account, a retirement account, a savings plan, a budget, AND life insurance coverage on top of what the military offers to prepare for my future after the Army. Marissa has been there for every random freak out session, each anxiety-filled meeting, and every excited text. Going to Marissa was the best decision I ever made!
