"Just following up on your presentation last night and wanted to let you know that I was so glad I went. There were things that I hadn’t realized, you opened my eyes. Even my husband came home feeling the same way. Once we got home he actually sat down with the kids for almost an hour to discuss your presentation."

"Thank you. I personally loved your book, and I am going to make my own cereal box bank. It is also an amazing idea having give, invest, save and spend because it is a perfect balance between needs, wants and feeling good. I also liked how interesting the book is and how it makes you want to build a bank of your own. I think everyone should have their own bank."

"Thank you for doing this. I know it’s not easy with so many people not wanting to talk about money, and preferring to live in a world of denial. But as you said, it’s the power of one! One person can make a difference, and it has a ripple effect. And soon, no one will be afraid of talking about money."
