John and Jennifer's Story: Who they are
In November 2014, the Crofts expanded their practice and became the franchise owners of the entire province of Saskatchewan, opening up and establishing offices in Regina and Saskatoon to serve clients needing debt relief. Due to the increasing and popular demand of their services, the Crofts grew their practice yet again in October 2015 and opened an office in Mississauga, Ontario to serve even more clients.
Drawing on more than 13 years of combined work experience in real estate, finance, insurance and investments, John and Jennifer have a layered understanding of finances and the consequences of poor financial management.
Armed with that experience, along with a passion for helping people, they moved their family from BC to Alberta in 2010 to start their first 4 Pillars Consulting firm in Northeast Calgary. The business offers assistance in personal and business debt restructuring, credit rehabilitation and financial literacy education. One year later, they expanded their franchise territories to serve the entire city of Calgary and surrounding areas.

4 Pillars Mississauga Personal Debt Case Study & Outcome
After seeing an online ad for 4 Pillars Consulting Group and having read their clients' positive testimonials, I decided to call them. I knew that I desperately needed help with my financial nightmare, and I tried other avenues that didn't help, so I thought I'd at least call them.
It was a fantastic decision. I spoke with Sonia Oliviera on the telephone, and she invited me to come to her office for a consultation. I did go, and found Sonia to be very helpful, with a friendly and professional approach. I came to Sonia after having spent the last couple of years trying to fix my personal and business debt loads on my own, without having any success at all. My debts were spiralling out of control, and interest charges plus persistent calls, texts, and letters from my creditors were making my life very tough. I actually did seek professional advice from four previous sources, but only one was partway able to help me, and yet they were not very easy to work with or to reach. Still, I would've used them, because they were the best I'd come across thus far, that is, until I found Sonia.
Sonia was different, because she treated me like a client who was also a person. She treated me like a priority. I felt very poorly about myself due to my situation. I was stressed and intimidated by my creditors, and I was living with the stigma of carrying a high debt load. Sonia nicely yet firmly told me on a couple of occasions to relax, because I had given control of my situation to her, and that she would help. She understood what this was doing to me, and she effectively helped me. She made me realize that my debt wasn’t what identified me as a person, and she also helped me with my finances. Sonia has integrity, and even though she is busy helping other clients, she still finds time to return e-mails and telephone calls in a timely manner, which my other prospective organization wasn't always able to do.
Sonia works with me and for me, so I finally listened to her advice to stop negotiating with my creditors, and to let her handle them for me. Her advice worked. Sonia worked hard to negotiate a workable solution to my financial predicament, and she is still there for me to offer further financial guidance as I need it. I am not just released from the stress of debt, but I am continuously learning, through 4 Pillars, to recognize the patterns that drove me to this situation, and to prevent the same thing from happening to me again.
As I write this testimonial, I feel like I am one of the many 4 Pillars success stories that I originally read about. I thought I'd be able to fix my problem, but I couldn't do so without Sonia's professional help. Thank you Sonia and 4 Pillars for treating my financial situation with respect. Thank you Sonia for convincing me to stop stressing about my creditors, and to let you handle everything on my behalf. You do so very well. I definitely recommend you Sonia to anyone needing a financial life revival.
