Galia Gichon Featured in Real Simple Magazine!

We are so excited to share that our own, Galia Gichon, was featured in Real Simple Magazine this month talking about how to avoid impulse buying around the holidays. Hear what she had to say about her experience:

In the December 2013 issue of Real Simple Magazine, I was asked to work with an ‘Impulse Buyer’, Jovette, who generously overbuys gifts for her family and then herself. While her intentions are great- she completely overspends and – more importantly, isn’t meeting her goals of saving for a home. She does not have any credit card debt but is not saving either. (If this sounds at all familiar to you, don’t worry, help is here!)

The key to helping Jovette, was to help her change her habits so she was not tempted to give in to impulse buying. I gave her lots of great tips to keep her on track.

Read the article on the Real Simple Blog.

Lastly, but just as important, I helped her keep her eye on the prize of what she really wanted – saving for a new home! The other women being helped in this article were a ‘Sales Stalker’ and a ‘Big Spender’. Learn from these women how they can resist temptations during this holiday season.
