Hi there - I’m Dr. Paris Woods!
I'm a bestselling author, Harvard graduate, and financial freedom coach for Black women and women of color.
Despite a top tier education and years of hard work, up until my 30s I was living in a tiny studio apartment, spending a lot of my income paying off loans, and feeling pretty broke at the end of each month.
My career seemed to be on a great path, but something just wasn't right financially.
That's when I realized I would have to get intentional about my money.
I set out on a journey to make a lot more money, manage it better, and start investing.
In just a few years, I eliminated $70,000 in debt, doubled my salary to earn more than $150,000, and devoted time and effort to learning how to invest my money in a smart, long-term, and diversified way.
When the pandemic hit and my whole team was laid off, I found myself in such a strong financial position that I didn't need to desperately jump into the next job that came my way.
Instead, I took advantage of my newfound freedom to travel, hang out with friends from around the country, and try out my dream digital nomad life.
After enjoying several months off, I had the opportunity to accept a role I was thrilled about at a mission-driven organization in a city I loved.
Ultimately, the decision to change my view on how to earn, spend, save, and invest my money meant I didn't have to make any drastic decisions or be forced into taking the next job that came my way when I was laid off.
And the best part is - my own journey to financial freedom inspired me to help other women achieve results like this every single day.
I'm on a mission to help more women of color build wealth and achieve financial freedom the smart way, so they can live a life they love.
