"Stop living from DIRECT DEPOSIT to PAYDAY LOAN to TITLE PAWN to LOAN from your mom to DIRECT DEPOSIT."

So, #whathadhappenedwas...

Over the past twenty years, I noticed a pattern with clients complaining each year that they didn't understand why they were struggling financially. 

Folks with income ranging from $10,000 to $400,000 a year shared the same story of living from paycheck to paycheck.

I call them the secret poor...

What Our Students Are Saying

Going through the course I feel this is a safe environment and it will give me lots of information. I am excited about changing my thoughts and relationship with money!

Nancy Williams

I appreciate the crawling phase before easing into something major. It prepares your mind and a new way of thinking to get you where you need to be. The step process is crucial and will definitely make you think.

Deborah DuBose

Loved my experience with the Crawl Before You Ball course. Buffie created an inviting platform for us to share our history/relationship with money. We were encouraged to say "NO" without an explanation. The discussion was very intense but cathartic.
Buffie, Thank you for your time and commitment to the community!

Crawl Before You Ball

Author Buffie Purselle

Buffie believes that readers must first tackle their financial, mental health before embarking on the journey to financial freedom. The disconnect with budgeting rarely stems from a lack of mathematical ability. Instead, the book deals with the "why" we make the daily financial decisions that wreak havoc on many areas of our life.  If your parents didn't have a good relationship with money and struggled with daily economic anxiety, likely, you will also.  This behavior is learned.  Readers will learn how to break those generational financial curses and how to make their money work for them.   

All PreOrder Books will be personally signed by Buffie Purselle

Whew. I didn’t realize how many people I felt responsible for. I’m
A single male but I have just taken on this toxic masculinity in my mind that I have to provide for everyone and always pretend like I got it
