A couple of days ago, one of my client couples came to visit for the last time as part of their program. I really wish every client left my programs just like this, but is most cases they do not. This client came bearing a gift.
They informed me, while I was opening the bag, that they had to use their credit card for the gift. Talk about mixed emotions! What they gave to me was well worth them using their credit card.
To be honest, like so many of my clients, I really wondered whether they could make the change. I know what it is like on the other side of debt and poor financial management, but I wonder if others will ever feel it on this side. This client was no different. In fact, back in April of this year I was not sure they would ever come back. They did and they came back committed to make a difference in their lives. The “thank you” card they wrote me shared that they have been fighting their money problem for 22 years. How long for you?
Since that April re-committment day, life has hit them hard with things that they did not expect. When they re-committed they did not know everything that they would face in the days, weeks and months coming. They can, now, face those things with a new sense of success.
Since April they have paid off seven credit cards!! Yes, seven. They still have more to go, but they should pay off another three over the next 2-3 months. Wow! I am so proud of them. I am proud of their success and proud of the gift they gave me. How does it look to you? It looks good in my office!
