Around three years ago my wife and I needed help financially. We had recently had our second child and had not properly realigned our lifestyle habits with the fact that there was one fewer income and a couple extra mouths and a larger mortgage. We were spending around $700/month more than we were making.
We needed to put a budget together and hold ourselves accountable to it. Something history proved for the past year or so that neither of us was very good at doing. I asked a close friend how he and his wife were able to adjust to very similar circumstances, going from two incomes, no kids, to one income, two kids. He recommended Corry.
Corry was exactly what we needed, at pretty much at the exact time we needed it. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t easy, and we didn’t get along at first. We needed tough love, and a lot of hard truths, a couple of reality checks, which Corry had the experience to show us and help us get our financial situation turned around.
Fast forward to the present, we are living in a beautiful location, a couple of blocks from our kids’ schools. We’ve got our spending and budget under control, including some contributions to RRSPs. Our savings portfolio is performing better than I can remember, and we’re purchasing an investment property at the end of the month that we expect to see $300+ in monthly cash flow.
Corry has been amazing with our kids, very flexible with accommodating our busy schedule. She is professional, honest, funny, always happy, outgoing and bubbly almost to a flaw. My wife and I would recommend her to anyone that needs a financial planner, or a kick in the pants, or a balanced personal budget.
She’s been a miracle worker in our lives.
