Interview with Ashley Massengill (@ashley_massengill)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I began working on my own credit in 2017 and launched my own credit repair company after seeing my own results.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

The most interesting thing that has happened to me was being able to donate $20,000 cash to my old high school for college scholarships in 2019. To help seniors pay for tuition. 

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

Hire a reputable mentor and take training on marketing, sales, and retention as soon as possible. I became a millionaire within my first 18 months of launching my first company. But it would have been a lot quicker had I had someone to help me avoid many of the mistakes that I made along the way. 

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

I have had many people who have inspired me in one way or another. I’ve actually taken about 15 online training from other multi-millionaires. This wasn’t until after I’d been in business for 2 years though. Learning from them really just made me realize that I can go fast alone but I can further with help. There were certain systems, software, and resources that they had in place which afforded them the opportunity to work smarter and not harder. I was making millions alone but I was killing myself while doing it. 

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I have personally donated $300,000 in the last 3 years. I’ve paid for ppl to go to college. I’ve gotten families out of shelters. I’ve stopped evictions, paid for weddings, mentored over 1,000 people, and was recently awarded in June 2020 for reaching over 1 million dollars in my mentor program alone.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

“Scared money don’t make no money”. Lol, Many people try to wait until they feel “ready” to launch their business mentally and financially. But the truth is, sometimes you just have to take a chance before you have all the answers. Because you may NEVER be ready. In February 2017, I over-drafted my bank account to launch my first company. In my first 30 days, I made $10,000. Which was more than triple my salary at the job I was at, at the time. (USPS) I then quit in March 2017. God told me to jump and so I jumped. And I asked questions later. I can’t imagine where I would be right now, had I waited until I was “ready”. God is not the author of confusion. He wouldn’t bring you to it if he’s not gonna bring you through it.
