An excellent program that really helped us integrate everything together. Now I know why finance can be very pricky at times.

I went through the financial understanding intervention and would recemmond the program. It helps understand a finance perspective to decision making and quite frankly bake in those arguments before going to finance for approal. It definitely helps reduce a lot of emotional drain and effort
