Let me tell you a story; it starts with five important women in my life: my nieces Kristin, Audrey, Sophie, Elsie, and Hannah. I wanted to give them the best high school graduation gift that an uncle could. Since I’ve devoted my life to finance, I decided the best gift was financial independence. So I went on an exciting mission to teach them about investing in the stock market. Bad news, they weren’t nearly as excited as me! They didn’t study finance and, in some cases, had no interest at all. But I knew that even people not interested in finance still need to prepare for the future.
So I set out to write my book, How to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock Market, with the goal to make long-term investing advice as simple as possible. I even enlisted one of my nieces as an editor and let me tell you; she didn’t hold anything back, she told me, as a young person and a woman, exactly where the chapters were confusing. Thanks, Elsie!
This book reduces everything I’ve learned about investing over my three-decade career down to the most simple, step-by-step system. So when each of my nieces turned 18, I gave them three thousand US dollars and helped them set up an investment account. Then I helped them invest that money following the lessons in the book.
And now they are well along in their careers, but the bad news is, I failed.
Why? Because I was unable to consistently follow-up with them to help them contribute each month to truly build their wealth.
If they were actually following my system, they would be well on their way to financial independence.
So … to solve this problem, I created the Women Building Wealth for my nieces and for all women interested in financial independence to provide them with a system to help them stay on track to achieve that goal.
