Ever since I was a child, I’ve wanted to travel—go places I’ve never been, see things I’ve never seen, do things I’ve never done. Why? Because experiencing new things allows me to grow as a person.
As a result, in my thirst to be a catalyst for women who want to increase their knowledge and confidence about money, I thought, Let’s do something different. Let’s get women out of their normal day-to- day routine. Have them unwind in a tranquil environment where they can expand their knowledge among others like them. Give them a comfortable space to open up, to share and overcome their wealth challenges. Sound good? I thought so, too, like a great combination—a retreat.

I grew up in a small town in Southern Virginia with my grandparents. During that time, my grandmother became the primary breadwinner for our household. My grandfather made a decision that at this point in his life, he would stop working. Didn’t know exactly what I was seeing transpire right in front me but “It had an effect on me.” My grandmother and I became very close. We would talk about many things.
One day we had a conversation about my father. My father wasn’t an active participant in my life. She asked me “Should I take your father to court for child support?” Now I was 8 or 9 years old and didn’t realize the implications this decision would have over my life. In my boldness, I told her “No, if he didn’t want to support me than we don’t need his support.” WOW, I just made one of my first financial decisions.
This decision would impact my grandmother and me, for the rest of my life. You see whenever we would go through a financial challenge, I saw the effects of it on her and I felt it in our household from what activities I could do, to what foods we would eat.
This experience left a STRONG impact on how I viewed life and money. From that point, I subconsciously decided that I needed to learn how to become financially independent.
But my relationship with money deepened when I was in college. We flirted a bit, like all young girls do. Then I found myself becoming more interested in learning about finances, including budgeting and investing.
