My Journey

Have you dreamed of being debt free and living a financial stable journey? Want to build wealth and your future to come living your best life with faith and mindset? Let us tell you our journey and you can learn from us. We help bring people on a journey of wealth and a future legacy through their faith and mindset.

Believe and Budget is all about believing in yourself!

Believing in doing something good for the greater world!  Planning similar to how you plan for vacation, the weekend, or a girl’s or men’s night out on the town. Believe and Budget is also about motivating, teaching, and coaching you so you can enjoy a financially stable journey to share to the next generation of your family and friends!

My name is Kailey.  I love to share my passion of believing for the greater good, building positive relationships, budgeting the money we are given, and watching people enjoy the life the good Lord gave us as an outcome.

Younger years?

I became so interested in budgeting, finances, and believing from growing up.  I grew up in a household that was well off then well life happened.  My parents did teach me about money a little bit. My dad and mom helped me open my first bank account — free checking! My dad taught me to use a credit card only on gas to build up my credit and pay it off 100% every month! My mom bought me my first car — an old grandma car guys don’t get too excited about it!

Where money hit hard?

My parents got a divorce, my family did not talk much about the finances and kept us living a life we were living like when my parents were together.  A life where we could not afford – Christmas’s were still big, school activities were still 100% in our lives, and even more I played on a select team traveling from state to state.  I did not know any better until my dad started to open up about money when I was in my first year of college.  I could not believe what he would tell me.  I thought to myself, how could he not afford to send me to a private college and why did I need to get a loan?  I was so spoiled with living this way…however, in my mind, I was not going to change my decision… I still went to the private college to play soccer anyways. After my first year, reality hit and I did not want to be living a life that I could not afford and not get myself out of.  In one day, I applied to a public college, transferred, and moved in with my older sister and her husband.  That year I took a financial class to learn more about finances and paying my debt while I was still in school. 

College home run and well DEBT…

Being taught in college about finances changed my life! I had the debt — I needed to get out of it! I got out of it faster than lighting. Then began wanting to do something more with what I learned. It enhanced me to want to motivate, teach, and coach others to make this game change in their journey too!

Can you do it to?

Living beyond your means can STOP now in your generation and even change the rest of your families journey too!
