“Where did the money go?”

“I always had the dream of writing a book, but it wasn’t until I was recuperating from a serious car accident that I took action. Amanda Johnson has been my book coach since 2010. Yes, it took quite a while for me to get my book HarMoney™: A Step-by-Step Guide to Your Money …Your Rules, Your Way! done. But here’s why…I was working with a brain injury that made writing very difficult. Amanda was always there for me, guiding me, building me up, and providing sound advice when I needed to hear it the most. Many have commented on how incredible my storytelling is. I owe a lot of that to Amanda’s coaching, support, and taking the time to really get to know me, my mission, and my purpose.
Throughout my ordeal, she not only got the RIGHT book out of me, she helped me realign the “new me” with my dream of fulfilling my purpose here on earth. For that, I’m eternally grateful. I can honestly say she brought me back to a level of happiness, productivity, and satisfaction I never thought I’d have again.”
