Interview and picture taken from VoyageATL (October 3, 2017)
Today we’d like to introduce you to Thermie Jean.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve always been a numbers person as a child and now as an adult I have always been able to identify, on a logical standpoint the problem verses the solution overlooking the grey areas. To be honest, the grey areas are only here to distract a person from solving the underlying problem. Being that we live in an era where technology has advanced to such a level of a hands-on lifestyle, it has not only evolved on an intellectual structural basis, but it has also somewhat mentally crippled parts of our brain convincing us to be fully dependent on it. As a result, a major bulk of the population particularly the youth, (the future of this world) cannot function without. I call this the “microwaved mindset”, where we would much rather heat up a meal for 2 minutes in the microwave risk the activation of cancerous cells from the heat of the microwave, as opposed to making a hearty meal from scratch. My concept applies to the reason why our country ranks high in the entire world for poverty, yet we are the most powerful? Me being a numbers and logical person can see this does not add up. This of course falls on credit’s lap. If the majority of the nation lives below the middle class (which is vastly becoming extinct), then we clearly don’t have decent credit, and the interest rate(s) due to our poor credit is high. Now, couple that with the crippled microwaved mindset, and we have a problem.
This why I created The Eimreht Firm, LLC. Credit Repair and Finance Consultation. My firm brings the experience in helping create, solidify, and improve financial knowledge. By utilizing a solid, proven approach that the client cannot backtrack, The Eimreht Firm provides an in-depth education on the foundation of credit as well as when, and why you should use credit especially when it is deemed necessary. In addition, we pride ourselves on keeping our clients satisfied at all times with our work.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Of course I had challenges along the way, but I never gave in and I still haven’t. My reason is my heartbeat. I have a beautiful daughter from a previous marriage that looks up to me. I knew I had to continue to be the best mother for her and I couldn’t miss a beat because she is watching my every move. I have more to live for now more than ever. What saved me was my Faith in God, upbringing. Being raised in a Christian home, I knew that God humbled me so that I can learn to crawl, walk and run again but most importantly understand and value those steps with appreciation of the second go around. I’ve learned that with growth and consistency comes sacrifice. I view challenges as a reminder that I’m closer to my goal. I’ve always seen the light at the end of the tunnel, but I never acknowledged the impact or how broad the tunnel can get. Your actions as well as the direction you choose in life is your tunnel and that to me is a determining factor on the time you will spend in the tunnel. What I find most cringing is that you can see the light that skin has been deprived of; however, you can’t feel it because you’re in a tunnel you created based off of senseless decisions. The beauty of that is once you identify yourself with who you’re designed to be, then you are capable of seeing that it was your power that put you in the tunnel so it requires that same power and transitioned determination to get you out of it! Use it to your advantage and keep pushing through.

Whether on the phone or in person at our Atlanta location, the initial point of contact is “FREE”. Under the FCRA, it is illegal to charge “upfront fees” to the consumer prior to any services rendered. A good credit repair firm educates the consumer and disputes “errors”.

We have an innate passion for helping you maintain a positive and productive lifestyle through a wide range of financial services.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Simple, just being a child, period. Life is easier that way. I guess that’s why as children we have so much faith in the world. My job and my goal is to bring that feeling back to our society, our community.
