    I was really unsure about what sharing everything going on--let alone, honestly, how little info I actually had/understood about financial realities. Need tangible help and less stress. #forreal (I almost didn't go as I was so tired from a full week.) Thank the stars I went! Alexis provided a safe space to share info, ask questions and create actual immediate and longterm plans. She provided facts, insights and encouragement. TG is knowledgeable, experienced and focused on simplifying and increasing the quality of my life! Her listening ear, sense of humor and respectful candor make her an excellent communicator and trustworthy guide. I left with a plan and peace of mind! Thank you, Alexis, aka Thrifty Girl! How can people stay in touch with you? You rock!
