About Ruthie Slingerland

 

Ruthie has a passion for entrepreneurship and marriage. She helps overwhelmed women dare to dream, discover their strengths and draft their future so they can have the successful and balanced life God has for them.

Ruthie’s entrepreneurial journey started at the age of 19 when she launched her career as a Christian music artist in her native Puerto Rico. Over the course of 4 years, she performed her songs and ministered to thousands. Soon she realized she needed to step off the stage; a difficult decision that eventually lead her to coaching as a new form of ministry.

For over a decade, Ruthie worked in the language and education field as a professional Spanish interpreter, university language instructor, and adult educator.

Missions have always been near to Ruthie’s heart, especially being able to help women of all backgrounds create a sustainable form of income without sacrificing their family’s quality of life. She was recently in Peru serving as an interpreter for her church staff. Ruthie encouraged women to tap into their God-given talents and find financial freedom by learning to create a plan and save.

The Slingerlands have a successful online Amazon business that has given them the ability to become debt free, live in the location of their dreams and homeschool their four children while traveling often.

Ruthie loves languages, enjoys singing to the tune of Jamie’s guitar & communicating deeply with others.
