We are proud to join the celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD) across the globe on Monday, March 8. Not only does the day commemorate women’s achievements and raise awareness of challenges that persist today, IWD also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
Each year, International Women’s Day encourages us to celebrate our female role models, confront the inequalities women face and focus on the change we want to see – and create – in the world. This year in particular, the theme is #ChooseToChallenge, which reminds us all that we can choose to challenge and call out gender bias. We can choose to champion and be an ally for gender equality. We can choose to seek and lift up female achievements – collectively.
All of the chapters in my money story could be summed up with three words: make it count. As a Financial Advisor, I’ve had a decades-long fascination with squeezing value and meaning out of every dollar and helping my clients do the same. I even named my business Make Your Money Count, LLC. But the essence of my money story focuses on faith more than finances.
