Creating Passive Income with Ashley Patrick

I’m so happy you’re joining us today because I’m interviewing Ashley Patrick. She’s a personal finance expert and founder of Budgets Made Easy. We’re talking about how she helps a busy mom saves money and pay off debt but really she’s opening the curtain and letting us see behind the scenes of what it’s like for her to create her business, create streams of passive income, semi-passive income, how that looks, how much she’s making. It is such a fabulous conversation because Ashley is just very humble and she tells us about the struggles and the successes. And, I know you’re going to take so much from this conversation. Enjoy…

Ashley shared these insightful notes:

  • “…People want this like I can sell this and that really started giving me hope because at that point I think that was close to the end of year two of struggle and just wanting to give up but then I just keep going, and that’s really important for you to just keep going because you just never know what’s the next thing might work and you have to fail, you have to try things. The first thing you make may not be a success or the 2nd thing that you make may not be a success and you just have to have that experience of testing things, trying things out because what works for one audience may not work for another. What works for my audience may not work for another person in my niche. Everybody seems to just be a little different. So, it’s really just trying different things to see what works for you and that takes time.”
  • “Being able to help other people will have that option of choice as well because if we still have all that debt that we had, I wouldn’t have been able to stay at home with my children because I would have to work to pay bills. So, you know, that kind of being debt-free gives me or gave me that freedom of options and that’s what I want for other people.”
  • “A lot about different mindset, you know, not worrying about your competitors and those types of things. You know business coach, like I’ve hired business coaches and stuff to help me with that as well so not being afraid of like investing in the tools that you feel like you need to kind of overcome that. But a lot of it just takes practice and reminding yourself that you can do it, you are good enough and to not worry about your competitors, don’t even look at them, don’t worry about them…”
