“I thought the Summit Financial Wellness information from the classes in our Cohort was very helpful. I now realize how important it is to break down what you are spending your income on. I will use my knowledge gained by writing down my spending habits, fixed, variable and periodic. I am more aware of how I manage my money.”
— Antonique Adams
“Barbara Sistrunk was so knowledgeable about Credit History, how Credit works, the FICO Score and the class prompted me to revisit budgeting. As a former small Business owner, the class motivated me to get back in Business and to follow through with more counsel from Summit Financial Wellness.”
— Luvenia Clark
“The instructor was OUTSTANDING! The class (Credit Strategies) reinforced the importance of shifting my mindset around money. Also, the lack of knowledge around credit hurts us. I’m recommitting to learning more.”
