Recently, I had a conversation….I think I’ll start every blog post off this way because honestly, most of what I write about will be sparked by a conversation I’ve had with someone…even if that someone is me! 

I know we all have limited time and if you’re anything like me, you want to get right to the point as quick as possible, so I will not write lengthy blogs and I won’t have long videos. 

I’ll strive to keep each post to 500 words or less and the videos will be 2 minutes or less.  If you want more information, you are welcome to join my private Facebook group where I answer specific questions and share more tips and advice.


Perhaps I should tell you a little about me.  I’m Brandy and I’ve been living an abundant life since 2010 when my husband and I realized we no longer owed on credit cards, car payments, or store cards.  Five years earlier, we owed over $75,000 in consumer debt!  That’s a story for another time.

I started this blog because I wanted to create a space where women, in particular African-American professional women, could learn the things our parents didn’t teach us about money.  I want to write to the young professional who makes plenty of money and still lives paycheck to paycheck.  I want to write for the female entrepreneur who sacrifices saving for her future because she’s determined to see her business succeed.  I want the women in my community to have a voice they can identify with when it comes to relevancy and reality when talking about money.  I want to be a voice for women like me.


My passion is seeing people experience freedom when they realize they can budget their money wisely.  I love connecting with people who are serious about making changes in their financial situations.  I’ve spent several years learning through trial and error what would work for my family and families like ours who want to save more money.  I’ll write about things my friends ask me about.  If they want to know, you probably do too. 

My faith has been a mainstay in everything I do with my financial choices.  I’ll write about how applying Biblical principles will allow you to experience true abundance in your life and not just your finances.  I’m pursuing a project where I want to provide financial education to the community surrounding my church.  I will definitely write about what I learn from that process.

Back to the conversation….recently, I had a conversation about…Oh, look at the time.  I guess you’ll have to come back to hear the rest of the story.  Smile
