Hey, I’m Ashley Patrick, a personal finance expert and founder of Budgets Made Easy. I help busy moms create systems to save money and pay off debt so they can reach their big dreams faster and easier.

I was able to pay off $45,000 in just 17 months including $25,000 in student loans in just 10 months. I’m a Master Financial Coach and have a bachelor's degree in psychology and will help you get to the root of your money problems.

Since my journey started I have been featured on Fox Business, Yahoo! Finance, Food Network, USA TODAY, MSN, CNBC, NerdWallet, and many others.

“Another thing that I encourage couples to do, and my husband and I are very good at this, is we dream together. We talk about, okay, what if we got all this money someday? What if or what do we wanna do when we retire? What do we wanna do with our goals for next year? And really dream together because something that might be happening is your spouse doesn't have a goal that they want to work towards, and it may not be the same goal as yours. So you really have to compromise, communicate, and work together toward the same goal. So sit down and just dream together. Find out what they really wanna do with their life and see if you can come together, maybe compromise a little bit and work together towards your financial goals, which you definitely gotta get on the same page in order to make it work.”
