I’ve been working with Sylvia since 2018, she has helped me create and kept me on track to achieve my financial goals. She also helped me address my relationship with money! She’s a source of inspiration and anyone would be lucky to work with Sylvia!
Having Sylvia and Will help me and my wife organize our personal finances has been a gift from God. Our money has been disorganized for so long that I wasn’t sure how we’d ever get on track. They created the safe space to openly discuss what’s going on and to create a plan that works for us. I finally feel like a responsible adult and I have Sylvia and Will to thank for that!
