Hi, I’m Alison!
In my 30’s, I was making a high six-figure salary, raising my kids, and absolutely killing it. And then, after not really budgeting, just winging it, and relying way too much on credit cards, my world came crashing down. After my divorce (which cost waayyy too much!) I was left completely broke. And that’s when I decided I would just stop looking at my bills and ignore the collection calls (NOT a good strategy.)
When it finally got to the point where I had to declare bankruptcy, I knew I had to put on my big girl pants and figure it out. I decided right then I would start over and never allow anyone else to handle the finances in my home again.
I knew that I needed to be financially independent and understand everything there was about budgeting and, most importantly, change my belief that I was a failure or clueless about money.
I literally started at rock bottom to rebuild. I learned the practical stuff from books and finance experts and did a lot of work on my money mindset with coaches, personal development gurus and more books. And I lived without a credit card for three years. Yup, if I didn’t have it, I didn’t buy it.
Not only did I rebuild my finances, but I now enjoy looking at my bank account, investing and planning my budget every month. I love not worrying whether my credit card will be declined or whether I will have to dip into savings to pay bills every month. I never have a pit in the bottom of my stomach worrying about my financial future (even with a disabled son and husband!) I’ve created a great relationship with money where I’m in charge!
And that’s what I want to teach you.
