"My name is Pranav, and I have taken Carolyn’s investing classes. I took these classes because investing and finance aren’t taught in school. Carolyn makes the investing classes easy and fun. Thanks to her classes, I have become much more knowledgeable about investing, saving, and finance. If you guys are looking for an amazing investing class that’s fun at the same time, this is the way to go."
- Pranav, Middle School Student (11 Years Old)
"I highly recommend Carolyn’s classes. She helped our family start the conversations about money with our middle school aged son. She introduced financial concepts in a fun way with videos, interactive games to simulate budgeting and investing, and had break out sessions. Her guest speakers shared real life examples that were relatable. We learned many valuable lessons within a short period of time. We look forward to more classes!" - Melissa, Parent
"The classes were easy to understand and I liked playing the games. I learned to how to save and invest money and to avoid debt and money predators." - Tyler, Middle Schooler
"Carolyn was overall a great teacher and taught useful information about how to be smart with finances and why it’s so important! As a college student, I believe finances can be stressful to manage without the right knowledge on how to even start. Her classes helped me gain a better understanding on credit cards, interest, how to safely spend/save and so much more. I’m glad I was able to take her classes!"
- KM, First Year College Student
I have always been hesitant to learn about personal finance because I felt like I didn't even know where to start or what questions to ask. But your classes have made me feel more confident and much less afraid to ask questions. I have learned so much and I'm so grateful for all the work you did to make it happen!
- Rainey, College Graduate
"I highly recommend Carolyn’s courses for both young adults and adults that are not familiar with the financial world. Information was well presented within an hour, kept my attention by having it interactive and fun! She made the concepts simple to understand and gave us great references to research further. I look forward to taking future classes!"
- Anita M, Parent
"Carolyn’s classes were very helpful. Learning the fundamentals of investing, credit, budgeting, etc. in a way that was not intimidating, but easy to understand was extremely valuable."
- DL, Early in Career Professional
"Carolyn's experience was very helpful because she was able to provide me with real life examples. She was very patient and flexible and even helped me while I was on vacation. Now I feel more confident about money topics and best of all, I got an A in the class."
- High School Sophomore (Money Math Class)
"Carolyn provided me with encouragement and a sympathetic ear during a mock interview. She advised me and answered my questions about the interview process with a considerable amount of patience and knowledge. Our discussion gave me the confidence and insight required to successfully interview for my first job."
- College Graduate (Kick Start Career, now a Software engineer @ a Fortune 500 aerospace company)
"After working with Carolyn, I was able to clearly articulate a future vision for myself and define my priorities and achieve employment. With Carolyn's supportive coaching, I was able to gain confidence and have a successful job interview. Carolyn's know-how, encouragement, and support really helped me. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for career advise and help."
- College Student (Marketing Ambassador @ a technology company)
"I had my son work with Carolyn because he was having a difficult time finding employment. Within the first hour, Carolyn found that his resume did not reflect his true experience and accordingly revised it to highlight his best attributes. We started working with Carolyn early enough to maximize his time off in the summer. After a mock interview session with her, he had gained confidence and was hired two weeks later."
- Parent of a College Student (Resume and Interview Skills)
"Carolyn has been my professional and personal mentor for 9 years. She is a strategic, goal-oriented, results-driven, and inspiring leader. Her guidance has helped me gain confidence in my professional abilities and achieve several financial goals. She teaches me how to live a healthy lifestyle and regularly checks in with me to provide encouraging support. Carolyn is a committed and dedicated person that enjoys sharing her knowledge. I’m so grateful for the positive impact she has on my life."
- Senior Manager (Work/Life Balance)
"Here are some of the most valuable lessons that I learned from Carolyn:
-Always plan ahead, be it a deliverable or a vacation. When we plan for it, it will happen.
-Family is important and it is a priority for most of us. However, it is equally important to make time and take care of ourselves too.
-Work Hard, Play Hard. Be sure to create "memories" when you are on vacation. You will cherish this later in life when you look back."
- Finance Professional (Career Guidance)
"I've always been interested in the business field careers and the knowledge that she taught to her students are keys to a good financial future. The way she teaches her students isn’t your normal classroom. She makes sure that everyone is engaged with learning and that no one is left behind.
I walked away with so much information about not only the basics of finance but information such as how to build a good credit score and how to budget properly that wouldn’t be taught in most schools. Most importantly, she taught that being rich isn’t about having possessions but it's to enjoy life to the fullest while being financially stable. "
- Jiasheng, College Student
"For context, I am two years into my career with a bachelor’s degree. I am currently investing passively in a 401k through my employer and admittedly haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about my personal finances. My family didn’t share much about their habits or investments with me, and I definitely didn’t learn the importance of it in school.
In the few classes I have taken with Carolyn, I have learned so much and feel motivated to take charge of my financial wellbeing. Carolyn is able to create a friendly and knowledgeable atmosphere for her students in her classes that is rare. I felt so comfortable asking questions that I probably would have been too shy to ask with other teachers. I highly recommend trying her classes out as soon as you can!"
- Jessica, Early in Career Professional

I wanted to have all my colleagues listen to him. He did such a great job. You should be proud."
