This review is long overdue. I complete the OPD program in 2018 after being in debt for over 10 years. Without the help and guidance from money mentors I would not be where I am now. Not only have I managed to stay out of debt but from all the financial wellness courses I took, I have thrived. I have my life back. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
