Stage 1 teaches you how to start your Money Success Roadmap journey by taking step-by-step actions including creating a basic budget, a realistic meal plan, and a one-month plan with SMART goals.
The second stage is where you should feel capable, self-assured, and prepared to truly dive in.
In this stage, we'll discuss how to identify your sinking funds, how to make a plan for them, your beliefs and money myths, how to save $200 every month, and how to make a 6-month plan with SMART goals.
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.
“Remember, you don't have to be perfect at it, but it is creating a plan cuz we wanna start looking toward the future and mapping out how we're going to get there. And so that is kind of the beginning of this road, is identifying where we wanna go, where we're at, and how we're going to get there. Even if you can't see the whole road, right, you know where you want to go. And so we've gotta figure out how you're going to get there.”
