Patrice Washington is a nationally recognized best-selling author, featured columnist, television commentator, transformational speaker, spokesperson, radio host, and leading authority on personal finance, entrepreneurship, and success for women and youth.
A licensed real estate professional by her sophomore year in college and a real estate and mortgage broker at 21 years old, Patrice took her boutique brokerage from the dining room of her 700-square foot condo to a 7-figure real estate empire by age 25. After losing her fortune in the recession, she dedicated herself to not just rebuilding and reinventing her own life, but also to helping the masses move from debt management to money mastery.
Nationally known as America’s Money Maven, Patrice has had tremendous success with her “money mindset” approach to personal finance. Her teachings go beyond coupon cutting, budgeting, and credit repair, and focus on shifting mindset, earning more, and living your purpose. Patrice is committed to redefining the term wealth and encouraging women to have wealth in all aspects of their lives by pursuing their dreams, being fulfilled, and earning more without chasing money.
Today, Patrice is a recurring voice on NBC, FOX News, Black Enterprise, The Huffington Post, Essence magazine, and more. She’s been profiled by The New York Post, Success, and Women of Wealth and is known as the personal finance voice of the top-rated and nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Radio Show, where she hosts her own weekly segment, Real Money Answers with Patrice Washington. She is also the consulting producer for Steve Harvey’s Funderdome.
Each year Patrice electrifies tens of thousands as a sought-after speaker from colleges to churches and conferences nationally and has shared the stage with renowned speakers such as Lisa Nichols, Laila Ali, Paul C. Brunson, and Steve Harvey. Most recently, Patrice appeared on Centric TV’s The Round, delivering a dynamic and empowering talk on success.
Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, Patrice shares her personal story of losing her business, her life savings, and even her newborn son. Those life experiences put her on a path to become one of the most sought-after experts on the true definition of wealth. “Becoming wealthy has 100% nothing to do with money,” she says. This emotional and powerful interview will have you rethinking how you invest your energy and time.
