Do you feel like you don't have control of your finances? You're not alone! Many people struggle to maintain strong personal finances while building savings and lowering debt.

In this step-by-step video training course, Ashley Corley, a management consultant at a Fortune 500 firm, a volunteer overseeing leadership development of 5,000+ women across the Southeast, and founder of the Foundation First concept, shares her secrets to success in managing personal finance.

I've watched multiple people in different stages of life struggle day to day because of not understanding how to manage their personal finances. I don't want anyone else to struggle, which is why I created this course for you.

There are countless benefits to developing, managing, and maintaining strong personal finances from understanding your current financial picture, to optimizing your cash flow to achieve maximum potential, to creating spending plans that match your financial goals.

In addition to the compelling lectures, video trainings, and templates/resources, I am also available to answer questions on how to build your financial picture.

Nothing is kept secret; I reveal all I know. Additionally, I constantly will be adding to the course at no extra cost to you!
