Patrice C. Washington: “You’ve Got to Give God Something to Bless”

patrice12Patrice C. Washington is the Founder and CEO of Seek Wisdom Find Wealth, a boutique personal finance consulting firm based in Atlanta, GA where she creates practical products and programs that help individuals and families reach their financial goals. Patrice also works with Fortune 1000 brands and institutions to create relatable personal finance content and curriculum.

Every week Patrice’s advice is heard by millions who listen and love the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning show during her “Real Money Answers” w/ Patrice C. Washington segment.

Patrice is also the best-selling author of three books on personal finance.

“I’m most proud when I receive e-mails from men and women who say my writing has changed their life,” she says.

Beyond books, Patrice’s work has been highlighted in hundreds of magazines and websites over the years. Her wisdom’s been featured in everything from Ebony, Essence and Upscale Magazines to being a featured writer for sites like The Huffington Post and

Patrice has appeared multiple times on NBC, The Steve Harvey Talk Show, Bloomberg TV and the Dr. Oz show, as well as been interviewed by Forbes and SUCCESS Magazine. On top of all of that, she’s a wife to an amazingly supportive husband and the mother to an amazing kid known in social media as the #MiniMoneyMaven.

“It’s all a been a wonderfully humbling, gratifying and fulfilling experience, but at the end of the day, the only reason I do what I do is to help you live and leave a legacy that matters. I want you to have the life you desire and deserve and quite frankly, I believe mastering money is the key to making that happen.”

Patrice and I discussed:

  • How she went from a 7 figure business at 25 to losing it all – and built herself back again
  • Why personal finance is about personal responsibility
  • Her observations regarding differences in how men and women approach money
  • Getting your head out of the sand when it comes to money
  • The truth about spirituality, God, and being abundant

… This was a great chance to speak with someone who not only loves finances, but really works to empower women to own their finances and know their numbers. I’m deeply passionate about this because we’re in a society that tells us not to value money, yet inflation is crazy, and – if you let them tell it – you’re only worth but “so much.” We can’t afford to let anyone control our value, or our financial stability. That’s our responsibility and we need to take it back.
