How did you get started in this business?

I started Ascended Wealth Creations out of a deep desire to help people who were vulnerable to financial scams. Growing up in Peoria, I saw firsthand how devastating poor financial advice could be on families and individuals. I combined this with my core Christian values and a solid grounding in ethical business practices to create a venture that would offer genuine and transparent financial guidance.

How do you make money?

Our primary revenue comes from personalized consulting services and workshops. We help individuals recognize and recover from scams and provide them with tools and knowledge to protect themselves in the future. We also have partnerships with various organizations that share our mission, which helps diversify our income streams.

How long did it take for you to become profitable?

It took about two years to become profitable. Initially, a lot of time and resources were invested in outreach, education, and building trust within the community. Profitability came as our reputation grew and more clients began to see the value in our services.

When you were starting out, was there ever a time you doubted it would work?

Absolutely. There were many moments of doubt, especially when facing the challenges of changing deeply ingrained perceptions about financial security and scam prevention. However, my faith and the visible impact we were beginning to have kept me going.

How did you get your first customer?

Our first customer came through a community workshop. We provided valuable information about recognizing and preventing common scams, and one of the attendees was so impressed that they signed up for a private consultation.

What is one marketing strategy that works well to generate new business?

Educational content has been our most effective marketing strategy. By offering free webinars and resources that address common concerns around scams and financial safety, we’ve been able to establish authority and trust, which in turn generates new clients.

What is the toughest decision you’ve had to make in the last few months?

One of the toughest decisions was choosing to expand our service offerings to include more proactive financial education, such as investing and saving for the future. It required additional resources and shifting some of our focus but was necessary to fully support our clients’ financial well-being.

What do you think makes you successful?

My success stems from a combination of relentless determination, empathy, and integrity. Staying true to my values and consistently striving to provide genuine help rather than just selling a service has resonated well with our clients and built long-lasting relationships.

What has been your most satisfying moment in business?

The most satisfying moment was receiving a letter from a client who, thanks to our guidance, recovered from a significant financial scam and was able to retire securely. Knowing we had such a profound impact on someone’s life was incredibly rewarding.

What does the future hold for your business?

The future looks promising as we plan to expand our educational programs and explore digital platforms to reach a wider audience. We’re also considering strategic partnerships that align with our mission to increase our impact on financial literacy.

What business books have inspired you?

“Good to Great” by Jim Collins has been incredibly influential, teaching me about the importance of disciplined people, thought, and action in transforming a good business into a great one. Another favorite is “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey, which has shaped my leadership style and personal effectiveness.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

I would tell my younger self to worry less about the inevitable failures and focus more on the lessons they teach. Every setback is an opportunity to learn, grow, and refine your approach.

Are you willing to be a mentor?

I believe in giving back and sharing the knowledge and experiences I’ve gained. Being a mentor not only helps others but also enriches my own understanding and appreciation of this journey. If anyone is passionate about creating ethical, value driven businesses, I’d be more than willing to guide them.
