“This book is such a great read because it reveals powerful, life-changing tools Kembala used when she was my financial coach. Kembala is the real deal! With her help, I stopped living paycheck to paycheck, eliminated over $20,000 in student loans, $10,000 in credit debt and raised my credit score to well over 700. What I received in coaching sessions, you can now have at your fingertips…”

“After college I had credit card and student loan debt. Kembala worked with me to lay out a plan of attack. With her motivation and help in looking at my debt more tactically – I did it! I paid off roughly $16,000 in not ten, but three years.”

“Money is a language, and Kembala is fluent! She brings an insight and expertise to financial matters that are second to none. She was a guest on my ESPN radio show in Honolulu, Hawaii where she provided my listeners with key advice on financial management and spoke on money topics including why a lot of professional athletes have gone broke and made the segment interesting! Kembala’s the one to help you gain money control and that, you can take straight to the bank.”

One of the most valuable resources I have encountered since becoming involved with the financial literacy community is Kembala Evans. She is a multi-talented professional with broad experience in organizational development, technology, marketing and media relations. Her eloquence and passion for the cause of financial education make her an unusually effective speaker, host or moderator at public forums of any size and scope. Kembala has been a trusted colleague, advisor and friend whom I would recommend to any commercial or non-profit organization without reservation.

“Kembala Evans came to speak to my members of B.I.G., an organization that focuses on support and empowerment of women in business. Lots of positive feedback was received from the audience on what a great job Kembala did on delivering her topic of “Your Money Matters.” Kembala has a down-to-earth style, and delivers financial information in a way that was easy for the participants to understand. And she delivers great value, as many members commented that they were ready to take lessons learned at the event and move forward to improve their financial lives. I highly recommend Kembala as a motivating financial speaker and coach to any group or organization who wants to enrich and educate their membership!” Patricia LaCroix

“During a period in my life, I had about $10,000 in credit card debt, $24,000 student loans and a very poor credit score. I was behind on bills and my car got repossessed. I really needed help! Thankfully, I was able to work with Kembala to improve my finances and develop better money skills. Her genuine care for my well-being and the focus she displayed to help me achieve my goals was very impressive. Under Kembala’s guidance, my money habits improved dramatically. I eliminated ALL credit card debt, paid off ALL student loans, caught up on expenses and bought a new car (paid off early). I saw my credit score improve from 532 to over 800. I also bought a house in the process. It’s all because I worked with Kembala and wanted to make a change in my life.”

“Hi Kembala, I got your book after attending your workshop at Gail Borden Library in Elgin, IL. Your book has been very helpful in helping me organize my finances. Since the workshop, I’ve gotten a better job that pays a lot more than what I made before. What I made in a month on my old job, I now make every two weeks. I got your book before the increase, it helped change my mindset on money.”

“Since attending Kembala’s seminar, I’ve started saving over $1,000 a month. Kembala helped me to see all of the financial headaches I was actually “giving myself”, and how to liberate those wasted funds from the money pits that I was unwilling to recognize. Those funds now go to my two new, favorite, and much more beneficial causes of ‘Savings’ and ‘Investments’!”

James, Seminar Participant

“The financial coaching I received from Kembala has forever changed me and shifted the direction of my life. With coaching from Kembala, Kembala is honest and helps you to be honest. She is also very encouraging and positive. Because of her coaching style, I have faced my finances and my relationship with them. I am more focused to get out of debt than I have ever been. Kembala’s coaching has taught me to not just pay bills off but also consider the reasons that caused me to spend what I didn’t have. I really focus on need versus want and I consider saving to make purchases instead of using credit. Paying off debt gives me peace of mind that I didn’t have before regarding my finances. I am on my way to being debt free.”

“The knowledge Kembala has imparted on us has been tremendously valuable. We use the information provided to this day, such as the FSA benefits for our kids’ care. More importantly, the step by step discussions and plan laid out not only made us accountable but it also ties in matters of the head and heart as it relates to money. This is not always an easy road to travel but necessary to achieve your financial success. We are far better off today for having had the opportunity to benefit from all of Kembala’s wide range of knowledge.”
