I was raised with little money. Hubby was raised with a country club membership. They say opposites attract. But that doesn't match in the real world, with real bills, with real financial needs...when one of you thinks the B word is on par with the F word.
A lack of budget was destroying our marriage, seriously.
Hubby wouldn't listen to me. He would throw his glasses in frustration, I would cry and beg for him to work on the spreadsheet because that part was hard for me and he did them all day at work.
I felt like the bad guy and abandoned. I felt frightened and frustrated.
He felt cornered, overwhelmed and as if he was failing because there wasn't enough money to land us in the black every month.
It was a long decade after the crash of '07.
But then we found Dave Rasmey and Ramsey Solutions.
Granted, I do not believe God and Bible Verses need to be part of my financial journey, but the steps were easy to follow and the advice was solid.
It SAVED our marriage!
When Rich was unemployed again in 2018-2020, we were lucky that we had worked with a Ramsey Solutions Consultant and wanted to help others the way we had been helped.
We became certified in 2018 and have since been helping others get their finances under control, teaching them on how to budget, how to shop better, how to save and how to MOST importantly discuss finances without arguments.
You see, money isn't just about money...it is about our relationship with ourselves and others. It represents how we feel about ourselves.
The real work isn't looking at one's checking or credit card accounts.
The REAL work is uncovering the WHY behind your spending.
Any one can download a financial app. You come to Herrington Consulting because we help you uncover your truth behind your spending so you can work at the ROOT of your decisions, not just the symptom of spending.
We offer the Ramsey Financial Peace University Course as well as 1:1 Coaching
My spending was out of control. Mary & Rich helped me discover it was about my not feeling worthy. Now,I feel worthy and spend less.

I had over $200,000 in student loans. I couldn't sleep. Now I have a payment plan, security, and less frightened.
We just went GF due to allergies and Celiac diagnosis. It was costing us over $2500 a month. Mary helped us get to $600 a month!
