LaShandra Butler was born and raised in a single parent household in Buffalo, NY. She is a loving wife and proud mother of three.
LaShandra attended college in Buffalo, NY. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from D’Youville College and her Master of Business Administration with a focus in finance from Medaille College.
LaShandra has 17+ years of experience in the financial industry including Finance, Budgeting, and Accounting.
Her passion and desire to succeed and help others in this arena started when she was denied for pre-qualification in 2014. She learned the reasons for her denial and began to work.
With her drive and determination to buy her first home, she decided to put her best foot forward and apply all she had learned professionally to her personal situation. She was driven to succeed because at the time, LaShandra was a single mother to her son who has special needs.
Within 90 days, she put together a budget plan to cut unnecessary spending, increase savings, and minimize debt. She pulled her credit report, identified what was affecting her negatively, and communicated with creditors and credit bureaus in efforts to clean her credit profile.
Carrying out her plan, she doubled her savings account balance, paid down debt, and boosted her credit score by 74 points. Needless to say, she became a first-time homeowner. After buying her first home, she took her experience and decided to document the process, research, and study. She is now a second-time home buyer and has energetically completed the entire process in less than 30 days. After these accomplishments, she knew she wanted to help others achieve their financial and credit goals.
She started with helping others with finances and budgeting, which she believes leads to financial discipline. She now desires to reach and help as many people as possible. She founded My Boss Budget Coach, a company established to assist individuals with achieving financial goals through budgeting, specifically focusing on home buyers. After many client inquiries and requests My Boss Credit Repair, a credit restoration program that focused on restoring credit, building credit, credit education, and financial budgeting was launched. Since then, the program has transitioned into something even greater, My Boss Financial Solutions.
