More About Ebony
From pain to purpose, Ebony Murphy, CEO of Virginia-based Budget & Financial-planning agency, Blessed Budgets, has successfully built a business and life that faithful dreams are made of. Born and raised in the parts of Orlando, Florida more prone to violence and poverty than tourists and mouse ears, Ebony developed both a love for numbers and helping others at an early age. As the youngest in her family, and the daughter of an Air Force Veteran and a college professor, Ebony’s path to helping shape budgets and financial futures across the globe started with her dishing out financial advice to friends and family. Soon afterwards, her love of finances and compiling figures gave life to the dream of officially starting a business that would educate, empower and equip people with the tools necessary to be debt-free. While she enjoyed helping others, Ebony, herself a United States Air Force Veteran, served as the first official client for Blessed Budgets. After leaving the Air Force, surviving a costly divorce, battling for child support and custody and finding herself homeless and living out of a car, Ebony was able to rise above it all to erase more than $50,000 in debt through proper budget planning. The numbers enthusiast, who is now completely debt-free, started Blessed Budgets in 2015. Blessed Budgets, which focuses on budget planning and empowering entrepreneurs, newlyweds, new college graduates or those who simply need help with mapping out their financial independence, gives Ebony the perfect fusion of giving back and satisfying her own love for crunching numbers. Ebony maintains that her ultimate goal is to “teach what I’ve learned, to save people time and money in personal and business finance.” When Ebony isn’t assisting clients with customized budgeting plans and extensive Excel worksheets, she’s spending time with her son while strengthening her Christian faith, which she credits for both her life- where she’s come and where she’s going- and her business. While her journey started out in struggle, there’s only one word that can possibly describe Ebony Murphy: Blessed.
