My name is Allyson and I am an Accredited Financial Counselor (AFC) and the one that runs this site.
I am currently making a living as a full-time Financial Counselor for service members in the Air Force. I have been teaching and counseling people to choose their life goals and find ways to meet them, for over 20 years.
I have worked with teens to adults assisting with educational, career, and financial goal setting, learning, goal-reaching, and life-changing.
Because I have been an active military spouse, a guard spouse, and now I work with the military, I understand all things military money as well!
I did divorce my military spouse after a long and difficult marriage.
Well, difficult is an understatement. My ex was downright abusive. I suffered several assaults at his hands (and feet). I can truly say I understand why women are afraid to leave abuse and very often the fear is rooted in finances.
Friend, it is my greatest passion in life to empower you, to gain control of your own money so you have the strength and courage to leave your horrible, abusive, or difficult marriage. Then to master your money so you can stand on your own and find freedom and abundance with your money.
I am now a single working mama who devotes my days to caring for, loving, and encouraging my two amazing littles because I understand that time goes fast, and they won’t be my “littles” much longer.
My little family loves to spend time together in all kinds of ways, but our very favorite is to leave the day to day needs of our home and head out for an adventure. We typically travel fairly close to home, but our adventure circle is ever-widening as we try new places all the time.
I am so happy to have you here. Look around and I hope you choose to stay awhile and work on celebrating your Fabulous Life along with us.
If there is anything, I can help you with, please feel free to reach out and let me know. Remember, there are no ‘dumb’ questions and if you are wondering about something chances are good that someone else is too!
