The Mesquite Group was created to help people who are considering filing bankruptcy, or who have already filed, get a realistic look at their budget, understand how they spend money, and pick up tips that might help them manage it better in the future. Our counselors, teachers, and administrative staff are outstanding.
One of our goals has been to treat our clients and students with great dignity and respect and to extend the same courtesies to their attorneys and staff. We have accomplished this.
We now find the numbers are not working for us. We kept our prices low and our service personal, but it has been challenging to maintain our bottom line, so
December 31, 2019, will be the last day to register for our courses.
You have until January 31, 2020 to complete your course or class and receive a certificate of completion.
If you are a returning student, we encourage you to complete your course as soon as possible. We will issue certificates of completion until January 31, 2020.
If you have questions about our services or need a copy of your certificate please contact us at email@example.com or call us at 817-769-4069. We will maintain archived copies of certificates past January 31, 2020.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a great new year.

For years, adult clients have asked us, "Why didn't we learn these money management skills before we got out of high school?" They believe financial problems might have been avoided if they had only known how money works in real life (IRL). We listened and have introduced a program for teens – Money IRL.
From one month to the next, if you find yourself with more month than money, wondering if you can ever retire or looking to get out of debt – you could benefit from working with a financial coach. You do not have to navigate the current economy alone. In one-on-one phone sessions, a coach will help you set short term and long term goals and guide you toward positive changes in financial behavior.
The Mesquite Group proudly offers self-paced continuing education classes (CEUs) for personal finance professionals. Topics are relevant to current issues affecting the financial counseling community and all classes are pre-approved for credit with AFCPE®.
My telephone counselor was extremely kind and understanding. She explained and answered my questions very clearly and did not make me feel unworthy or insulted in any way. She was very kind, understanding and helpful. Continue with the great work you are doing. It was a delight to have the help and understanding I received from the counselor.
