If you're thinking about doing your budget and making a spending plan to manage your money but keep putting off, you're not alone!
More often than not, we tend to procrastinate and make excuses when it comes to managing our finances especially in doing our budget.
Listen to today's episode as I discuss how being mentally ready to handle your finances help to get your finances back on track. I also discussed how getting organized in your daily tasks and breaking it down into smaller action steps help you to achieve your goals faster.
I'm Ashley Patrick, ex detective turned debt-free CEO of my very own business and stay at home mom of three. Not too long ago, my dreams of staying at home with my kids seemed impossible. I thought I'd have to stay miserable in a high stress demanding job, just so I could retire someday.
After gaining the confidence in my own ability to manage my family's finances and a simple step-by-step plan to make it happen, I was able to pay off $45,000 in just 17 months, which then allowed me to finally quit my job, stay at home with my kids, and build a debt-free business.
Now, my mission is to help moms like you conquer debt and free themselves from the mental load of handling their family's finances.
“We feel overwhelmed because we feel like we have all this stuff to do but if you break it down into smaller steps, you feel like you're actually getting something done.”
