Rashida S. Thomas

Meet Rashida


In 2012, I left school with $99,000 in debt. By the time I started taking it seriously 3 years later, I owed $135,000.

I was running away from it. (victim / avoidance)
I was too ashamed to get help. (fear)
I could never envision my life without debt. (lack of faith)

And finally one day I hit my breaking point.

Years of brunches, degrees, traveling, drinking. I had nothing to show for it.

It wasn’t long before I found myself on a therapist’s couch dealing with the anxiety around my finances.

I had to face my fears.

I had to create my plan.

I had to activate my willpower.

Since then:

  • I’ve paid off $10,000+ worth of debt in 18 months.

  • Became a Certified Financial Education Instructor

  • Held financial educational workshops in Dallas, TX

  • Helped young professionals eliminate tens of thousands of dollars in debt

Now I speak and host events helping people overcome their financial anxiety so they can get on a path to eliminate their debt .
