Tariq J.

To protect I.D. Picture is not actual person

“Tariq J was a truly inspirational story.  He tells of saving during the practicum. He tells of purchasing his first car.  He tells of getting into a car accident the next day, and the resulting consequences of what the knowledge gain of the FIT Academy had to do with his financial decision-making.  As he tells it, he was laying in his bed thinking through what steps he had to take, and notes the binder from the FIT Academy as a resource.  He read it through, specifically about credit. He knew that if he left unpaid bills on his credit card or even phone bill, it might have a negative outcome referencing his credit. He adjusted, and used some of his savings to stave off the creditors, as he got back on his feet.  As soon as he was able, he went back to work, and was able to shore-up his savings, and pay off all his debts, get another car, and as-well, write for scholarships that had him gaining access to the Community College educational system free of any expenses for the next year.  He spoke at the graduation ceremony. I am proud of his accomplishment, and I am certain he will help others obtain this same knowledge of how Financial Independence Training has changed his life.“


Thank you,

Tariq J.
