A Bit About Ashlee & Binder
Hi – I’m Ashlee a lifestyle blogger empowering creative entrepreneurs to be debt free and live life on their own terms.
I’m a 23 year old entrepreneur and owner of this blog. This space is all about my journey to paying off over $171K in debt, finding my passions, and most importantly, building my business from the ground up.
Hi there – I’m so happy that you found my little corner of the internet.
On this blog you’ll find bits and pieces from my personal life, tips on saving money and paying down debt a substantial amount of student debt. I believe that sharing is caring so every week you’ll find helpful resources, and wisdom about reaching your goals, doing away with the burden of debt, and even tips for you to start your own profitable blog today.
I briefly mentioned that my husband and I are in loads upon loads of debt. I truly hate the weight that debt has on my shoulders. I feel like I can hardly breathe. So, through this journey of paying off debt – I thought I would blog the tips and tricks to saving money that I’ve learned along the way. We quickly built up that debt – and it’s supposed to take a minimum of 10 years to pay it down completely. I, however, don’t subscribe to that logic. I think we can pay off our debt much sooner if we just put our minds to it.
Believe it or not – but I think my husband and I can pay off $171K of student loan debt in less than 4 years. (I'm really shooting for 3). Call me crazy, go ahead! I will even admit to it. But, once I have a goal in mind, you better believe that I'll achieve that goal. Come hell or high water.
When I'm not blogging about our debt journey, you can find me drinking tea, reading, or gardening. (Because I’m an old lady on the inside).
I also am passionate about giving you the tools that you need to help pay down your debts or gain your own freedom from the strict 9 to 5 job – that isn’t for everyone. Trust me. During my day job, I'm dreaming about buying a tiny home and traveling the country. But, alas, debt.
On this blog, you’ll also find resources that can help you start your own profitable blog today and ways that I, myself, can help you achieve your dreams sooner rather than later.
If you haven’t had enough yet – here’s some super fun facts about me!
- I spend way too much time online. Like – way too much. You can never be absorbing enough entrepreneur information, right? Also, Pinterest and I are BFF's. Like – for real though.
- I love, and I mean love all the 80’s and early 90’s movie classics. You can find me watching French Kiss and Pretty in Pink on a weekly basis.
- I live with my hubby of two years and our two rescued puppies Chloe and Moose.
- Gardening is my go-to stress reliever. If I’ve had a stressful day and the weather is good enough outside – that's where you'll find me. Pulling weeds and probably talking to my vegetables. Cause that’s what normal human beings do, right? Hmm…
- I’m an avid reader. I seriously have over 500 books in my home right now. Most of which I’ve read. Anyone want to start a book club?
I’m only one email away. If you have any questions or want to get in touch with me to collaborate or partner up – feel free to send me an email. I’d love to hear what you have to say! Talk to you soon.
