Today I’ve got my friend, the magical Patrice Washington who is an award-winning author, transformational speaker, media personality and hope-restoring coach. You’ll definitely be filled with hope and inspiration after you tune in to hear Patrice’s story, wisdom and rise in this powerful episode.

In her early 20’s Patrice was flying high as she built her 7-figure mortgage-broking business with her husband until it came crashing down with the 2008 recession and they lost everything. Not only did the recession take a hit on Patrice and her husband financially, but at the start of 2008, Patrice was in the hospital about to deliver her baby prematurely. Fortunately, she left the hospital with a healthy baby, but that came along with a huge amount of medical debt after her insurance company canceled her policy mid-stay. Patrice went from earning 7 figures to scraping together change to survive.

But Patrice never gave up, cultivating her faith and humbling herself enough to ask for help, Patrice dug deep to pick herself and her family back up and through that time discovered that true wealth is not just about money, but it’s about so much more like your well-being, and your relationships.

Today Patrice deep dives into how she managed to rebuild wealth, wellbeing, and success after losing everything, and why living intentionally, seeking wisdom and chasing purpose, not money is what truly makes a fulfilling and wealthy life.
