Most of my career was spent in the fashion industry. Like so many young people, fashion and beauty was sort of an extension of what I loved in my social life. It was fun and fast and exhilarating. And, though it was riddled with incredible experiences, it always felt like work.
I briefly modeled for Saks Fifth Avenue where I had the opportunity to meet fashion designers and their reps. When I was asked to be a rep for a line or two, the entrepreneur in me was born. I traveled all over the country and spent time in New York. I loved it but my love quickly faded. I grew tired of traveling so often.
Shifting to a more local scene, I worked for major cosmetic companies and a regional magazine as well as a TV station. That was also a fun time but it still felt like work.
It was not until I found finance that I realized when you truly love what you do, work does not feel like work! I love getting up every morning to do what I do.
The reason I love finance is because most families really need help navigating in the financial world. When I teach concepts like the Rule of 72 and Compound Interest, I can see light bulbs coming on for people. They get so excited to understand these ideas.
Teaching people various ways to grow and protect their money has become such a passion that I feel like the luckiest gal around that this is really what I get to do with my time. Work does NOT feel like work anymore.
I deeply enjoy helping people make good decisions and create retirements that can actually last a lifetime.
Changing your relationship to finances and investing in the right things will absolutely alter the course of your life.
Not only am I finding I can change the lives of my customers, but I can help others find their passion for finance by growing my team.
I have some exciting news to share with you soon. Stay tuned!
