Celebrity keynote speaker and author Patrice Washington wants to redefine wealth and prosperity. In fact, this inspiring young Black woman says that wealth has nothing to do with money at all. At least, not in how you pursue it. With a focus on personal development and well-being as well as financial expertise, her message goes beyond budgeting and debt management. She empowers people to find true purpose and happiness in their lives.
So what is Washington’s bold new message? And why should you book this inspiring and original young star for your next event?
A fresh take on personal finance
Those who chase only money rather than purpose often achieve neither. But those who seek purpose and fulfillment build both wealth and prosperity in their journey. That truth lies at the core of Washington’s message. Whether making a television appearance or delivering a keynote address, Washington changes the way her audience thinks of wealth.
Washington first entered the public eye as a personal finance expert, and eventually became known as “America’s Money Maven.” But her background in financial psychology led her to look even deeper into human behaviors. Why do we handle—and sometimes mishandle—our money? And who achieves lasting prosperity? Through this process, she redefined “wealth” from something you can find on a spreadsheet or in material possessions. Instead, she defines it as something bigger, something that includes the spiritual aspects of creating true fulfillment in life. Only then do we shift from a life of scarcity to one of opportunity and abundance.
As a motivational speaker and financial coach, Washington sees prosperity as a birthright. Through her podcast, books and speaking engagements, she assists all of us in reaching prosperity through purpose, discipline and joy, not self-deprivation.
Washington shines in media
Washington’s message has reached millions while gaining mass critical acclaim. Featured by Steve Harvey as a personal finance expert on both television and radio, she has also appeared on Dr. Oz and Fox & Friends. SUCCESS magazine named her on a list of the top “16 Motivational Podcasts by Black Hosts You Need to Listen To.” She has also been featured in hundreds of publications including Essence magazine and The New York Post.
Her holistic approach to wealth has also led her to host the Redefining Wealth podcast, available on platforms including Apple, Audible and Spotify. Here, Washington helps millions redefine wealth through personal transformation and well-being as she tackles issues of career and work-life balance, health and personal finance.
Washington also shines as a bestselling author. Her books include Real Money Answers for Every Woman, Real Money Answers for Men and, most recently, Redefine Wealth for Yourself: How to Stop Chasing Money and Finally Live Your Life’s Purpose. In this newest title, Washington engages and inspires readers to live their best, most prosperous lives through stories, exercises and principles including her “Six Pillars of Wealth.” At every step, she inspires us with practical methods to create goals, change habits, prioritize relationships and live with purpose in work we love.
