As a single mom of 3 who currently works nights, I struggled with guilty spending to make up for feeling absent in my children's life. Not only that, I was trying to keep up with the due dates of my expenses in my head, which was ultimately causing me to pay bills late. I wasn't saving, I didn't know where my money was going, and my credit score was NOT where I wanted it to be. Being the daughter of immigrants, and understanding that my kids were going to model the behavior I displayed, I decided that this disastrous financial train stops with ME! But I knew I needed help. After going through the Girlfriend's, Budget! Level Up Program, I now have a money management system that works for me! All my bills are paid on time, I paid off my credit card debt, I increased my savings by 35%, and my credit score shot up 84 points... all in less than 60 days! My money mindset has changed, and my confidence is through the roof! Now my kids can experience a life of financial security and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you Elle and GFB!

"I’M COMPLETELY DEBT FREE THANKS TO ELLE’S FINANCIAL FREEDOM PROGRAM!"
“Before working with Elle I had a huge problem with overspending. I struggled with depression for a long time, so I would spend large sums of money on clothes, shoes, and other items I thought would make me feel valuable. I knew I made plenty of money to cover my living expenses, but my finances were completely disorganized, and my shopping habits were out of control. As hard as it was to face reality, I reached out to Elle for help. I showed up, did the work, and finally invested in myself for once. Elle taught me how to let go of my haunting past, establish boundaries for myself and others, create a money management plan to help me reach my financial goals, and finally allow myself to experience financial happiness. Now, I live life free of money stresses. I am completely DEBT FREE, I get to enjoy traveling all over the world, and I am able to give back to the community. I can’t thank Elle enough for completely changing my life! Watch my success story here.
I FEEL MORE CONFIDENT KNOWING I HAVE SOMETHING TO FALL BACK ON!
I had experienced some hurt and betrayal in past toxic relationships, which left my emotions and my money in a state of disarray. I found myself paying bills late, not keeping track of my expenses, and living paycheck-to-paycheck with no savings in sight. Both my confidence and my credit score were at its lowest, and I needed help. Going through the Girlfriend’s, Budget Financial Freedom program has freed me in more ways than one. Elle has been an amazing money coach and mentor in my life. She helped me start my savings, become more independent, get my money organized, and grow my confidence. But above everything else, she held me accountable! I love maintaining my spreadsheet, which helps me visually keep track of how I’m progressing toward my financial goals. I did the work, and now I don’t have to worry about bill collectors, late fees, or toxic relationships affecting my money. I am a new woman, with a new life, and I am so grateful!
I began working with Elle and her team 2 1/12 months ago, and I have gotten nothing but positive interactions and results. I came to Elle with a specific goal, to actually learn how to be better about my money. Elle and her team do not only help you manage your money, but they dig deep and evaluate the real links to the mindset that you have about money. The change in mindset is EVERYTHING!
After two months I was able to pay of almost $5,000 in debt, increased my savings, and increase my credit score by 50 points!
I HAD NO IDEA THE VALUE I WAS ABOUT TO RECEIVE BY INVESTING IN MYSELF.
Before working with Elle and the GFB Team, I didn't have a well-mapped-out plan for my money. I struggled with keeping my finances organized, which caused me to put more debt on my credit card than I would have preferred. I've always been very social, and I have a very active circle of friends, which meant I spent a lot of money going out to eat. However, since joining the GFB Level Up Program, I've experienced a HUGE shift in my money mindset and look at my funds differently now. I'm more intentional with how I spend my money because I know I have goals I'd like to reach in the future. I've been in the GFB Level Up Program for four months and have already seen so much progress. In just these few short months, I've created a sustainable budget that fits my social lifestyle. I already PAID OFF $7,719 of debt, obtained my business LLC, and started my business FB group. I had no idea the value that I was about to receive for the investment I was making in myself, and I am eternally grateful for GFB! If you're on the fence about joining... here's my advice: DO IT!!!!
I PAID OFF OVER $33,000 OF DEBT IN JUST 11 MONTHS!
I joined the Level Up program over a year ago and it has been one of the best decisions I've ever made! I struggled with getting my finances together before and saving was an issue for me. Within the first 3 months of working with Elle, my credit score increased 113 points and I also paid off over $10,000 in debt. After 11 months in the program, I paid off ALL my credit card and loan debt totaling $33,000 and my savings is the highest it's ever been! I definitely feel more confident when it comes to money management! The Mindset Mentor of the program, Coach Dee, has really helped me by teaching me different tools for elevating mentally. As I continue in the program, I'm looking forward to the progress I will make financially and mentally. So thankful that I decided to be apart of this awesome program!
JUST WHAT I NEEDED, A PERSONAL TRAINER FOR FINANCES.
I wasn’t bad with money but I wanted to be great. After my first consultation with Elle, I knew right away she had the knowledge and attitude to get me on track to where I wanted to be financially. I loved that Elle asked the right questions to help get me the best results... She held me accountable to my budget like a personal trainer for finances!! Using GFB. I now pay more attention to every penny That comes in and goes out , My savings is growing and my credit score increased! Truly thankful that I invested in myself with such a valuable program!
IF YOU THINK YOU NEED HELP MANAGING YOUR MONEY... YOU DO!
Before working with Elle, my money habits were very spontaneous and sporadic. I wasn't keeping track of my spending while having an "I will pay it another time" attitude. I am a single parent handling all of the financial responsibilities. My money struggle has always been spending too much on eating out and buying unnecessary things for my kids. As a result, my credit score dropped dramatically, and I constantly had anxiety about utilities getting shut off before the next check came. I hit rock bottom when multiple bill collectors were calling my phone non-stop. I finally came to the conclusion I needed accountability with my spending to get me going on the right track. The detailed budget that GFB helped me create was by far the most beneficial. It makes a difference visually seeing where your money is going and the impact it has on paying down debt and bills on time. Also, having the accountability was most helpful for me. My anxiety level has tremendously dropped when it comes to paying bills on time. Now, my kids are on a budget just like me. I allow them to pick and choose where they spend or save their money. If you think you need help in managing your money… you do! What is the harm in allowing GFB to help you release negative energy around your finances, and teach you how to stop living paycheck to paycheck? In just four months in the program, I paid off $2,250 in debt, including a credit card paid in full, my savings increased, and my credit score went up by 65 points. This is the best investment you will make.
I KNEW MY LEGACY HAD TO START WITH ME FIRST!
I am a community activist and independent consultant, a military wife, mom of 4 girls with a full-time job. Before joining the GFB Level Up Program, I had an issue with my money mindset by overspending and neglecting my finances. When I started to think about my community and helping others live a more holistic and thriving lifestyle, I knew it had to start with me and my finances first. In just FOUR months of joining the program, my credit score increased 97 points, I paid off over $5,600 in debt (including one student loan paid in full), and I added a comma to my savings account. The thing that helped me the most was the accountability to keep me paying attention to where my money was going. I now feel so empowered in how I handle my finances and the knowledge I can pass along to my girls and my community.
