Love the recent interviews

The interview with Dawn’s daughter was a delight. What a smart & enterprising young lady. What a bright future lays ahead.

Today’s interview with Joshua Becker was very interesting. I’m always happy to see the “community leaders” working together & supporting others in the community .

Keep up the good work & remaining the calm voice of reason during this time of turmoil.

Hands Down, BEST Personal Finance Poscast

It’s been a bumpy 2020. Dawn has been there to calmly chat with us about money. There is no shaming or yelling at any of us (unlike other “go to” financial podcasters) and everything is explained in a way that even my school-age children can follow along and understand.

Feeling stressed about your finances? This is where you need to stop and listen and you will feel more empowered about it afterwards.

Just what I needed!

Dawn's extensive financial knowledge and her philosophy on life is exactly what I needed in this consumer-saturated culture. So easy and fun to listen.
