Words of an Entrepreneur: Lanay Gilbert

February 25th, 2021

Paying bills and stressing over them was a normal part of being an adult for me, but Crystal King showed me that it does not have to be that way. I could not answer simple questions about my spending at first, but by the end of our first session, I could see exactly what was happening with my finances. She reviewed my credit report and bank statements with me to help me to see my pattern of spending. I was absolutely amazed!

We discussed both my household and business spending to account for all of my capital and spending habits. I gained an understanding of where the majority of my money was going, where I could cut back, and what I needed to cut out altogether. Crystal also recommended apps that would help me to keep track of my finances and she even created a personalized chart of what was happening with my money. Before our second session, I had already begun to make changes to how I spend and will never look back.

Each session helps to create a clearer view of how I can finance my own business or even afford loans that I may apply for in the future. Crystal is very objective and understanding, so not being judged for my spending habits really helped me to open up more. The more I explain, the better she is able to help me to make spending decisions that fit my life and my goals. Having someone listen without judgment has been priceless.

I feel more confident about how I spend and I feel more grounded as an entrepreneur. Meeting with Crystal and following her recommendations can greatly help to lower the risk of businesses closing. I’m glad that I had the nerve to take this step and I’m beyond grateful for the order that Crystal has added to my life!
