Notable Quotes:

  1. "It's very hard to change and adapt...we do need to have the ability to assess and understand what can I do and what I can't do anymore." - Alex Bechara
  2. "There is a huge misconception about who we are...living within our means is definitely a great way to start." - Alex Bechara
  3. "Financial advice is a really good place to start, but it's also not the only tool out there...being educated enough to understand your current personal situation." - Alex Bechara
