Meet The Founder
Meet Leslie Walton, the visionary and catalyst behind A Cents Of Change. Leslie is a seasoned pro, holding a Bachelor's in Accounting and a Master's in Business. But she's more than her degrees. With a decade of real-world experience, Leslie brings a practical, no-nonsense approach to financial growth and business startups. Since 2018, she has captivated audiences in over 120 workshops, empowering them with actionable strategies for their financial and entrepreneurial futures.
Leslie's laser focus is on lifting up women and minority-owned businesses. Her hands-on research, in-depth interviews, and one-on-one talks have been a launchpad for real change. But here's the kicker—it's not just about fattening wallets. For Leslie, financial education is the gateway to personal confidence, stress relief, and a better quality of life.
But wait, there's more. Leslie's impact doesn't stop at established communities. In partnership with nonprofits like Determination, Inc., she's been a guiding star for returning citizens looking to carve out their own entrepreneurial path. From sparking the initial business idea to watching it blossom, Leslie's been there every step of the way.
At A Cents Of Change, it's more than a numbers game. Leslie's commitment is to ignite a personal revolution in every individual she works with. She's all about leveling the playing field, building healthier lives, and yes, changing the world.
