Mom's Shared Wisdom
This Mother's Day we're celebrating the women we love the best and acknowledging how they've shaped the way we think about money.
We asked the hemming& staff to share with us what they've learned (or observed) from their mothers. Here's what they had to say:
“I learned how to manage my money from my Mom. She was my first boss, giving me chores and requiring me to report back for a weekly allowance. It taught me to organize my earnings into three categories, saving, spending, and giving. She helped me open my first bank account and taught me how to balance my check book.” – Autumn Soltysiak, Advisor.
Advisor Dawn Hemming's mother always used to say "when in doubt, don't." It taught her how to deeply trust her intuition, and she finds that "it's the best source of intellect and common sense," all of which is necessary for financial success.
Jena, our Operations Specialist, learned a very important financial lesson from her sister: “Life is short, don’t be afraid to spend money on the things that bring you joy.”
Thank you to all the Moms, Grandmas, Aunts, Cousins, and Friends that have helped us along the way. Happy Mother's Day!
