Meet The Founder

Hello! I'm Leslie Walton, the founder and inspirational force of A Cents Of Change. I've always believed in the potential of every individual to achieve financial wellness. My journey into financial empowerment advocacy goes beyond just crunching numbers; it's about understanding the emotional and psychological relationships we have with money.

    My Story

    With over a decade of experience in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, I've gained invaluable insights into the challenges and triumphs of financial growth. I've taught over 120 workshops on business and budgeting since 2018, offering guidance and tools to foster financial independence.

    One of my key focuses has been on empowering women and minority-owned businesses. Through extensive research, interviews, and one-on-one consultations, I've had the privilege of witnessing the transformative power of financial education. It's not just about increasing wealth—it's about building confidence, reducing stress, and enhancing overall well-being.

    In addition to this, I've been instrumental in helping determined returning citizens find their entrepreneurial footing. Through our initiative with Determination, Inc., we guide these individuals from the inception of their business idea to the realization of their dreams.

    At A Cents Of Change, we're not just changing numbers, we're changing lives. My commitment is to help each woman embark on a transformative journey towards financial empowerment, ultimately reducing wealth disparities and fostering healthier, balanced, and fulfilling lives.

    Welcome to a world where we build solid foundations for financial futures—one community, one woman at a time. Together, let's make a change that counts.
