Hi There!

My name is Brittney. Here is a little bit about me and why I started the Miss Build A Budget Academy. 

I grew up in a single-parent home as a child. My home environment presented some obstacles that had the potential to impact my financial future negatively. Statistically, my money patterns were to include being swarmed in debt, striving to keep an average credit score, attending an in-state college, and possibly working a nine to five job depending on every paycheck. However, those statistics never became a part of my financial journey. Before I attended college, I began to develop a money mindset. I set into motion 21 money-changing steps that encouraged me down a path of financial independence.

I was fortunate enough to create a budgeting system along my journey that completely changed my perspective about money. Along the way, I developed a deep determination to decrease my loans and become debt-free right after I graduated from college. These habits helped me pay off $50,000 worth of student loans in my mid-twenties.

My goals always consisted of reaching financial freedom. It became essential for me to remain a good steward over my finances as an independent woman. However, I still desired to travel and enjoy life. While reducing my debt, I was still able to enjoy the little things in life through budgeting and living below my means.

The 21 Day Budget system helped me develop a healthy perspective about money, pay off $50,000 worth of student loans in my mid-twenties, afford to travel throughout the year, build a savings account, maintain an 800 plus credit score, own a home, and pour into my hobbies.

Guess what? I was able to accomplish these goals by working as an elementary school teacher.  I know! It is mind-boggling. Well, I did it! I continue to live financially free today because of the steps I took in college! In my book, I share the 21-day budgeting strategy that changed my life. I believe it will encourage you to do the same! Life can pass you by, or you can learn the tools to help you live your BEST LIFE NOW! Let's begin your journey towards financial freedom!

Testimonials

"What I liked the most was the accountability. You showed up to check in on us. You shared what you use and did demonstrations on how you did things. You also shared some of your story. I like your idea of a “21” day budget. Many of us don’t know how to get started. I hope your work will reach the masses because we definitely need it!"
