Welcome to my little piece of the internet world!
My name is Amy Esplin White and I help professional women build wealth while managing their home and family. My goal is to provide worthwhile content related to personal finance, parenting and all the fun stuff in my life.
Recently my husband and I paid off $293,000 in debt, as I’ve shared my progress and worked towards this personal financial goal I’ve realized that my story has resonated with many people.
I know first hand how hard it is to struggle financially and hope that by sharing my personal experiences I can help other avoid the mistakes I made. Quite frankly – debt sucks! My goal is to help anyone who is willing, reduce their costs, save money, learn to budget and get out of debt.
I’m an Xennial money expert who like many people in my age range (born between 1977-1983) am struggling to raise my kids (3 adult kids, my own 3-year-old and two grand kids) while balancing the needs of our parents who are in or about to reach retirement.
Managing money with so many different issues pulling on the purse string can be overwhelming at times. I feel like we are constantly being pulled in a variety of different directions all while trying to save our money for our own retirement.
I’d like this blog to be a resource for other xennials struggling with their personal finances. I doubt I’m the only person trying to balance the financial needs of my kids, parent and personal life!
As an MBA with a background in small business finance and human resource management I have an eclectic skill-set that helps me provide analytical answers to some of the tough questions surrounding personal finance.
I’ve found that when you run your home like a small business with an emphasis on financial accountability and the need for a strong balance sheet, you don’t make as many financial mistakes. It all comes back to having a plan and sticking to your financial goals.
I enjoy researching various subjects. If you are interested in a particular aspect of personal finance and need help, please let me know and I’ll do my best to help answer your questions.
On a personal level, I love photography, rock climbing, hiking, canyoneering, wakeboarding, and wakesurfing. I tried scuba diving for the first time this year and absolutely loved it. I enjoy reading and try to stay up to date with current events.
Mostly I just love spending time with my husband and our four kids and my grandsons.
In the business world, my boss is a serial entrepreneur, so I have a very eclectic skill set. I’ve helped start multiple businesses and currently provide over-site and management to a few of the more successful companies.
