Hi, I'm Dee!

It is my passion to help moms and their families to get out of debt and stop living a stressful life to make ends meet. You deserve to spend your time with your loved ones and lead a relaxed life without compromising on the work-life balance. I’ve been in your shoes, working 60 hours and sometimes more every week. Back in the days, I was happy about making 6 figures working as a project manager for corporate America but the demands of constant travel and work stress took a toll on me.
