What inspired you to start Women, Wealth, & Worth?
As a trader on Wall Street, I began noticing the increasing number of women who were coming to me with deep fears around money. There was an uncertainty, along with a desire to seek confidence financially—but they didn’t know how to gain that confidence.
I wanted more women to lose the fear and become financially confident and secure, so I created Women, Wealth, & Worth to provide a judgment-free, shame-free space for women to talk about money and step into their money power mindset. We help women acquire the confidence they yearned for and hadn’t found prior to meeting me.
What is the mission behind Women, Wealth, & Worth?
Our mission is to inspire women to make smart strategic money decisions, and to step into a money power mindset. Knowledge is power and we share this power with women to help them transform their financial lives. We are also on a mission to eliminate the gender wage gap. Our salary negotiation services have helped hundreds of women eliminate their gap and build more wealth as a result.
Can you describe the services that you provide?
Firstly, we offer one-on-one financial coaching. It’s important to note that a financial coach is different from a financial advisor in that we don’t sell any products (such as investments or insurance). Instead, we create a shame-free and judgment-free environment for women to gain financial confidence and knowledge. Our main areas of focus include education on budgeting, debt elimination, the credit score, investing (both stocks and real estate), and retirement.
Secondly, we provide one-on-one salary negotiation consulting for women who are mid-career level seeking to either make a complete career change, or advance from a managerial position to the C-suite. Understanding the negotiation strategy alone is super powerful, as today women only make 81 cents on the dollar, and it’s even worse for women of color.
We also conduct speaking engagements at various Fortune 100 companies and organizations to discuss the gender wage gap, financial wellness, and salary negotiation.
