How Khaleila Davis Went From $100,000 In Debt to Being a Personal Finance Advisor

Growing up, what was never vividly taught in school was financial literacy and managing finances. Many young adults fresh out of university learn it on a whim while navigating through their first-ever spendings out of their own salary. Financial literacy and developing a personal financial goal is an important part of planning for one’s future. 

Khaleila Davis, a speaker, author, entrepreneur, financial literacy educator, and founder of Ava Olivia Unlimited, LLC, has made a career out of helping others improve their personal financial knowledge. Khaleila believes that by teaching the fundamentals of basic budgeting, financial management, and attaining financial goals, clients are able to make smarter decisions when it comes to their finances. 

Everyone’s ultimate goal in life is to be financially free and debt-free. With this, one has to have smart skills to budget, be keen on increasing one’s funds, and be disciplined on maintaining a savings plan. Khaleila believes that in order to attain self-determination, one should be confident enough in one’s knowledge of personal finances, entrepreneurship, and leadership.

Like the experiences of most people, Khaleila has had a triumphant story of her own. From being in debt of $100,000, she was able to be free of it within 2 years! 

Being in debt, living paycheck to paycheck, and earning below your means is something that makes most people feel powerless and undetermined. Without the benefit of financial freedom, one is not able to prepare for the future as they are just living through the day. After all, enjoying the world requires a pocket with funds. 

Khaleila has worked her way to being the financial coach that she is today. She has a proven track record of training clients with tangible, actionable ways to improve their finances, many of which are done through 1 on 1 consulting, informative panels, seminars, and even workshops for larger audiences. 

Her career is proven effective as she has been her own personal finance coach. Owning multiple properties and being a serial entrepreneur, Khaleila incorporates her faith into her financial teaching. 

“I am sold out to all things Christ and believe I am who I am and have what I have because of my relationship centered in Him,” says Khaleila. 

As an acclaimed author, with her book entitled Faith and Funds, Khaleila talks about how one can manage their money, no matter how much their income level is. She teaches youth groups how entrepreneurship can be attained at any age with the right attitude, habit, and knowledge of personal finance.

With a personal finance curriculum rooted in a biblical lens, she gives credit to God for the success she has attained today. Khaleila offers advice on the basic elements of obtaining good personal financial habits that align with biblical principles. She demonstrates through personal experiences how consumers can align spiritual and financial truths to succeed in a society of consumerism.

From the start, a personal financial goal should be to stop generational poverty by making smart financial decisions. Are you ready to take the first step into a financially free life through faith?
