Natasha was such a big help! She’s extremely knowledgeable and fired up about personal finance. She’s also been through some difficult financial moments, so she speaks from experience when she helps you to develop your financial plan. She completely understands what it’s like to be a self-employed artist and to be working with a constantly shifting income. When I was done my sessions I felt confident and had a very workable plan to move ahead and achieve some financial goals that I’d been thinking about for some time. She helped to put it all into action.”
