Being born into poverty isn’t a choice, but staying there is. 

Nicka Johnson is a proud North Omaha, Nebraska native. She is passionate, charismatic, and committed to supporting her clients as they dismantle the economic and financial gaps. By eliminating the pitfall of financial hardships one can change their relationship with money.

Using the power of social media to show her own personal financial journey, that quickly captivated the audience and led to the birth of Budget to Success. Through a journey of financial disparities and her raw passion Nicka has coined the phrase in her community “is that in your budget.” 

With poverty at the forefront of her childhood upbringing, experiences like teenage pregnancies, single-parent environments, and absent fathers were very common in her community. Nicka learned that while her family dynamics may shape who she is they won’t determine who she will become. She intentionally chose to end the cycle with her and is no stranger to overcoming adversity. She wants to walk with you—as a financial coach to pair generational trauma with economic understanding. 

Nicka isn’t your average Financial Coach. The work she does in her native community is reflective of grassroots activists. She has created her own lane within financial activism as a resilient black woman and serial entrepreneur. Nicka is highly regarded as an avid truth-teller. She is willing to explore what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. She will address individual trauma by analyzing clients’ budgets and further explore how history has impacted their relationship with money. 

Nicka’s goal is to equip clients with the tools and resources to succeed through bridging the economic gap. So often we wait until the last minute to get our finances in order. As a result, we avoid the awkward conversations that often lead to living paycheck to paycheck, job loss, divorce, bankruptcy, and many more unfortunate events. It’s time to be proactive and not reactive about our finances to build generational knowledge and sustainable wealth!

Let’s get comfortable talking about the things that make us uncomfortable.   

Budget to Success focuses on educating our clients through teaching the importance of financial literacy, focusing on budgeting, savings, and credit. In addition, Nicka is passionate about determining financial gaps, drawing parallels, and exploring the next steps. 

Since 2018, Budget to Success (BTS) has unlocked substantial economic opportunities for our clients. We have celebrated homeownership, credit score increases, car purchases, and so much more! We provided individualized coaching because Success varies per client. We want to see our community and culture transform. The BTS family has seen clients overcome addictions, businesses launched, 800 credit scores, and six-figure salaries. 

Remember, only you can define the level of success you desire through budgeting, savings, and credit. Join the Budget to Success family and identify your areas of financial need, grow your economic understanding, and excel forward with us by changing your relationship with money.  

It’s time to fasten your seatbelt and buckle up because we are about to go on a financial success journey. We want to celebrate with you!
