About Melissa Blevins {Money + Blogging + Business Simplified}


Well, Hello There! 

About Melissa Blevins {Money + Blogging + Business Simplified} 5 I’m Melissa Blevins! A former banker and Realtor® with a massive passion for helping other women take control of their family’s finances and create the life they’ve always dreamed of!

In 2004, I was working as a Pharmacy Technician at the local drugstore when the Branch Manager of the bank across the street approached me about a teller position. I had no banking experience, but she must have seen something in me that made her believe I would succeed, and from the very first day, I was hooked! I wanted to learn everything I could about the personal finance industry.

Growing up, my family STRU-GGLED, living paycheck to paycheck every single month, and I was determined to never live like that as an adult. But the lack mindset was still there, engrained in me from childhood. I’ve had to retrain myself to focus on abundance and prosperity and let go of the money blocks!

As a self-proclaimed free-spirited nerd, I have a constant tug-o-war with my logical, practical (nerd) side that knows what needs to be done with regards to budgeting, saving money, paying off debt, & staying out of debt, but my wild-child, free-spirit likes to march to the beat of her own drum by making impulse purchases, overspending, and getting so far off-task from anything related to my goals. The struggle of the free-spirited nerd is real, ya feel me? I realized that with my personality type, I couldn’t follow the one-size-fits-all financial plan, created for everyone. I needed to focus more on behavior change and self-awareness if we were going to finally pay off our debt and achieve financial freedom. After trying for YEARS to pay off our debt and spinning our wheels, we are almost debt free! Hallelujah!  I’m making it my mission to help other free-spirited nerds achieve the goals they so desperately desire! Sound a lot like you? There’s a tribe for that! I’ve got some freebies to get you started on the path of creating a better life for you and your family!
