Meet Patrina Dixon of It’$ My Money, a subsidiary of P. Dixon Consulting

Today we’d like to introduce you to Patrina Dixon.

Patrina, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
For many years I was not a good steward of my money. I spent money as fast as I earned it. One day I said, “there has to be a better way”. I started following financial gurus and became vigilant on getting my finances in order and being a great steward of my money. As I went along the process, I began paying all of my bills and paying them on time, paying off debt, started saving, buying appropriate levels of life insurance, and investing. Once I started on the right financial path and after learning it was not as hard as I thought it was I felt it my obligation to teach everyone. The biggest change for me was making up my mind, once I did that rest was much easier.

Before I began helping people, I obtained more knowledge in the financial space through reading and studying the gurus, then I set out to become certified and actually acquiring financial certifications. Next step was to become acquainted with several financial experts and we began to the exchange of knowledge. I also attended many conferences to broaden my financial knowledge which helped me to help my clients. I continue read and watch all that is going on in the financial sector so that I can coach my clients accordingly.

I have several platforms delivering free financial content, such as my Facebook group (It’$ My Money Squad), my podcast (The Money Exchange) which is across many platforms such as Apple and Google podcast, Spotify, Stitcher, SoundCloud and Pandora, as well as The It’$ My Money Blog – at www.itsmymoneyjournal.blog.

Has it been a smooth road?
It has been a very interesting journey. Not all smooth but absolutely worth it. Some of the struggle I have had is being able to juggle all I have going all as well as my business. Starting out I didn’t have interns on my team. Then i got to the point I needed help. I brought on interns but they have turns over in the past two years so I find that up training is needed more that I expected. So I decided to turn lemons into lemonade had the tram work on an onboarding tool which we still use today. I work hard to create varies streams in income into the business and focused on the services more clients were purchasing.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the It’$ My Money, a subsidiary of P. Dixon Consulting story. Tell us more about the business.
My business helps individuals learn strategies to increase their savings, budgeting their money and earn extra income with side hustles.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
The face of the financial industry looks very different than it did ten years. With all of the experts out here, they are still many people living paycheck to paycheck and have not invested and don’t have sufficient emergency funds. This tells me there is still a lot of work be done. All of us are working hard in sharing the information and making ourselves available to help those that need it.

I am working hard to expand the footprint of It’$ My Money™️ across the world in an effort to help decrease the current financial status of people in many communities.
