​Dr. Brenda

​I created the Early Exit Academy to help ambitious, hard-working women and men master their money ... and their lives. We specialize in guiding students to financial FREEDOM​. ​

  • T​he freedom to travel the world on a moment's notice.
  • The freedom to quit your high-stress job and follow your dreams.
  • The freedom to choose how to spend each and every day.
  • The freedom to sleep peacefully without money worries.

​Despite a late start, I built a $1,000,000 net worth on one income as a single mom. Now I'm sharing my knowledge, tools, and unique approach to help others ​reach financial freedom.​ ​And once you  have freedom, you can escape the workforce early, if you want. How does that sound?

​​Each course is fueled by an adventure theme, engaging content, action-oriented downloads, and a supportive online community. And for a hands-on approach, try the 14-week Jumpstart Workshop.

Hi, I’ll be your navigator on this incredible journey!

Hi! I’m Dr. Brenda

I used to have a high-stress career, but one day it vanished. And the doors opened to a new kind of life. One that allowed me to explore what I really wanted out of life.

Now I’m on a mission to help you become financially free and escape the paycheck to paycheck lifestyle.

Do you really want to be punching the clock until you’re too old to enjoy life? Let me help you design a more rewarding life with fewer money worries.  


​Jumpstart Workshops

​We offer three “live” Jumpstart Workshops each year. Workshops are limited to 20 participants and are held over 14 weeks. Each Workshop includes weekly hands-on lessons, Masterclass sessions, one-on-one coaching calls, and a team atmosphere.

​Jumpstart Workshops

​You want a personal guide and motivational coach to jumpstart your journey to financial freedom. You are highly motivated and ready to put in the effort to create your dream life.  ​And you'd like some one-on-one advice from Dr. Brenda.


Academy Courses

We offer two all-inclusive Academy courses – one for Young Escape Artists and another for Midlife Dreamers. Each highly-engaging course will take you on a journey to financial independence and the life of your dreams.

​Young Escape Artists

​​You’re young and disenchanted with the traditional world of work. You’d like to become financially independent at a young age and create a lifestyle that embraces your uniqueness—the concept of FIRE (Financially Independent Retired Early) appeals to you. You’re ready to take charge of your destiny.


​Mid-Life Dreamers

​You’ve been working your entire life. You are feeling burned out by the whole affair. Or you might enjoy work, but would be in big trouble if your job disappears tomorrow. You want the financial freedom to leave your job on your own terms and to prioritize other aspects of your life.


Crash Courses

Crash courses are compact lessons focused on specific topics – they’ll help you tackle one goal at a time.


​Get out of Debt Now

​You are ready to tackle debt and you want to do it the smart way. Plus, you’d like to be debt-free as quickly as possible. Course includes a BONUS session on side hustles.
