Y'all know I love a good strategic planning session with Jesus and I found a friend who also shares the same love! Raven is back for part two all about Faith + Finance! 

Raven is a serial entrepreneur hailing from Timmonsville SC. She currently resides in Cincinnati, Ohio where she manages an accounting firm as well as traveling locally and nationally as a financial coach, heralding the message “Going For Wealth”. Raven graduated from Clemson University, is Certified Public Accountant(NC) and a Certified Fraud Examiner. 

Raven’s desire is to equip individuals with the knowledge and resources needed to break poverty and debt cycles. Facing financial troubles herself because of the ill choices she made in her early 20s, Raven has completely transformed her finances. On her 28th birthday, her net worth reached the multi-millions and she was able to quit her job in Corporate America to run her businesses full time. 

Raven is now blessed with the opportunity to teach others how she was able to pay down a mountain of student loan debt, credit card and car debt, while managing to travel internationally, open 2 businesses, create nonprofits, and enjoy life.

Raven is on a mission to debunk every money myth and show others that achieving financial freedom is not as hard as you may think. Raven does not teach others how to become rich, but she provides practical steps on how to Go For Wealth to live a life you deserve.

Today I was joined by Melissa and Murphy (M&M). They have been married for nine years. A little over five years ago Murph began listening to the Dave Ramsey's Show podcast. In January 2014 they began Dave Ramsey’s baby steps with a total of $229,000.00 in debt. This daunting amount consisted of it student loans, lines of credit, credit cards, medical bills, IRS bills, cars, you name it we had it. It took Mel the first year to get on board, but once they started to gain momentum in their debt snowball they saw a huge shift in not only their finances but many other areas of their lives! One thing that they can express to you is that this journey will transform you in more ways than one! Today, THEY ARE DEBT FREE and they believe that through what they’ve learned they can encourage others to get their fitness/finances in order.
