Ericka Young

Equity Educator / Author / Coach

Ericka is a best-selling author, speaker, and coach. She founded Tailor-Made Budgets a financial coaching and speaking firm in 2005 after she and her husband Chris climbed out of nearly $100,000 in debt. Ericka enjoys helping people create a solid path to financial freedom. While her daughters entered their teen years, Ericka began to realize the need for effective equity training, diverse perspectives, and inclusive environments both inside and outside her home. This journey led to her speaking on not just finances but also diversity, equity, and inclusion in workplaces and in the community where she lives.

At Next Pivot Point, Ericka facilitates training on racial equity, intersectionality, recognizing privilege, and unpacking racism. She is busy working to create a world where everyone is welcome in all spaces, and they have the financial resources to participate fully in those spaces. 

Ericka is the author of NAKED AND UNASHAMED: 10 Money Conversations Every Couple Must Have, an Amazon #1 best-selling book. Learn more about Ericka here.
