Reviews

We found this course to be quite beneficial. More than once we found ourselves saying "yeah we did that" when the program talked about examples. Thank you.

I was blown away at the information we learned. I'm truly going to do the budget sheet, starting over fresh in 2014.

I was skeptical at first as to whether or not this would be helpful, even though it was a requirement. I was very pleased. I am so very thankful that I learned some things I did not previously know, and I am encouraged from the information I obtained by taking this course.

The content was concise and easy to understand. Examples were presented clearly and relevant to real life situations.

I found this program very helpful for me to become a better money manager; not to be afraid of money matters. Thank you.

The online course was very convenient.

We wish we had done this years ago.

The course was written in an easy to understand format which I actually enjoyed. I learned a lot and was able to get all my post-course test answers correct. I would highly recommend this course to anyone but would be very helpful to high school and college students, newlyweds and well, really anybody - I am 72 years old and thought I had my financial life under control but life threw me a curve ball. Thanks.

A wonderful program, well put together and easy to get through. I find I am retaining this organized material very well.

This class was very helpful. I like that I could log off and take a break without losing my time.

Very useful course. Reinforced areas that I knew but ignored.

Course was well organized and provided a good learning experience.
The course was very interesting and informative. There were a lot of topics I was familiar briefly with, however after taking the brief class, it has opened my eyes to the many ways I can achieve the things I not only need but want. After the class I learned that I should put myself on the payroll as well and start saving in even with the smallest amount. Thanks for the bringing knowledge which will allow me to be better prepared in financial situations.

This course was very helpful, and we plan to use the goal setting and budgeting tips in the future.

I am thankful for this course. I wish I had taken it earlier in my life.

This course would have been better if taken prior to actually filing for bankruptcy.

I wish I had this information when I first started using credit. I believe the credit industry should require new/1st time credit users to complete this or a similar course before receiving credit.

Helpful in understanding how to deal with some unexpected downfalls that can lead to damaging your financial future.

We were so very happy for this course and we believe it will help us in our walks of life. Thanks a million.

I was so pleased with this course and it was very, very helpful. and I wish people could have had this course even they were not filing for bankruptcy.

I was pleasantly surprise by some of the things I learned, I believe everything works for a reason and I will definitely come back to this site to learn some more. Thanking you very much

Thanks this was very helpful. Wish I would have used this tool before I got into BANKRUPTCY!!!!!!!

I'm so happy you had the read out load option and offered this class online. Thank you so much. Also I like the fact that I can go back and review any chapter online for free. 

This course was a real eye-opener and will help me with my finances in the future moving forward.

My wife and I would like to say thank you to Money in Motion and we will definitely keep up to date with you as our favorite website. Thank you so very much.  You will be recommended to everyone we know.

We really like the idea of a budget and will use this and other tools to really make a difference for our financial future.

I feel this information will help us get back on our feet.

Very helpful in understanding our situation and rectifying it.

Good information for success.

There was a lot of excellent material covered. Thank you for creating an enjoyable and entertaining course for what is usually a very dull topic.

We thought the course was very helpful. It helped us remember things we have learned before and we learned additional information as well.

Thank you for all the useful information. I know I will refer back to the program from time to time.

This course helped me in such a great way to open my mind to the hopeful future of personal finances and so I can pass it on to my children as well. Thank you.

I found all the information I learned to be very helpful.

I was not expecting to learn anything new from this course … but I did! And it's information that I plan on sharing with my adult children and one of my co-workers who is always struggling financially. I was flummoxed when I seen how much available cash was left in my budget after all of my expenses. AMAZED!!!! Thank you and God's blessing on all of you who are helping people like me get their financial lives back on track!!

Thank you for a good tool that I can use to help secure my financial security.

This whole test and course was amazing. I have made some poor decisions in my life to get to here, but have the right attitude, goals and tools now to balance my life. Thank you so very much.

I am grateful for the vast information that was put together to help people like me. It's an eye opener. Thanks for working so tirelessly to help people who are ignorant in money management.

So much material to digest in a short period of time. WOW. Quite a few interesting suggestions. I printed out some things to have as I proceed.

This course was really helpful and I believe it will help me budget my finances in the future.

Thank you for providing a realistic and practical course that applies to a vast majority of people that are filing bankruptcy.

Thank you for your interest in my financial well-being.

Thank you for this info. It opened my eyes to a lot of things I was not aware of.

This course was great!! Now I have some very handy tools.

I really learned a lot from the program. I wish I had got this information a long time ago. Perhaps things would have been different and would not have found myself in this situation. Thank you.

This course helped me to begin to think about goals again ... and starting over. (Thank you).

I like the course because it explained about the different types of insurances and loans that I did not know about it.

I did learn a lot going through this course. It should be taught in all High Schools as a prep to the real world. I have printed the chapters and intend on re-reading them to help re-enforce building better habits.

I was surprised at how I really enjoyed the course. I learned quite a lot.

I would be interested in budgeting tips for seniors that receive income only once a month, like myself, which is how often I am paid. A lot of the budgeting tips were applicable to people who were employed and paid on a weekly basis.

I appreciated this course online, so that I was able to start and stop when needed. It was a lot of material to cover. I learned quite a bit, even at my old age. What I did know, it was great to go over and review some areas that was forgotten. Thanks again.

I found this course, long, yet VERY helpful. I've heard this all before, but it is wonderful to have a refresher course. Since my divorce, bankruptcy, and a life style change, is it a good tool to use to keep me on track to where I am and to where I intend to go. Thank you.

I enjoyed this course. I feel I can use the information in my everyday life.

I started this course as just a way to finalize a bankruptcy but ended up learning things I wish I had known or thought of years ago. I thought budgeting was crunching down not being able to spend a penny but this has taught me differently.

This course was just amazing ... I should know about this many years ago to don't go desperate using my credit cards to paid my bills. This was a great lesson. Thanks.

I thought this is a very good course. I learned a lot of information. I think everyone at some time ought to go through this. It’s a good education program.

THIS COURSE WAS VERY VALUABLE. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COURSE TO BE OFFERED TO ALL HIGH STUDENTS!

This was a good course and wished it was available to me before I got into debt and needed to file for bankruptcy.

At first we were unsure if this course would be helpful. After taking this course, we found it very helpful. Thank you.

Thank you! This was very helpful.

This is something good for everyone to take. This will help in understanding how you can keep from getting into money problems or debt.

I learned a lot and will tell others about this program. I wish I would have taken it at the age of 16. I wish this was offered in school. It didn't make me feel stupid, it simply taught me things my lifestyle or family past didn't teach me before getting in debt. Thank you

Very user friendly for me to understand

This helped me to also know I did all I could before having to file for bankruptcy. Also refreshed some of the financial information that wasn't as clear.

Thanks for the course!
