Why a Retreat?

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.

Meet Zaneilia
Zaneilia Harris, Author & President of Harris & Harris Wealth

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.

I became fascinated with stories in Money Magazine that profiled people’s financial challenges and potential solutions. In reading the scenarios, I could see myself helping others with sound financial advice, so I wrote it down in my personal journal of my dreams and aspirations as a career I would pursue.

Despite learning about the things you shouldn’t do, under family pressure, my first snafu out of college was co-signing on a loan for a relative. Family can have a strong pull on you! Can you imagine the burden I felt when he didn’t keep up with the payments? I was furious! That taught me to put up boundaries when it comes to helping my family.

I love them but I have to protect myself first and make a conscious decision on how I want to help and NOT allow them to dictate how my money should be spent. So, I understand these emotional pressures that come with being the financial responsible and successful one in your family. These are some of the reasons that influenced me and why I pursued working as a financial planner to women. I’m happy to say that my purpose and my profession are now one. I am able to help women solve their financial challenges and achieve their dreams.

I’m a 20+ year veteran in the finance industry, President of Harris & Harris Wealth Management, the author of Finance ’n Stilettos, a member of the CNBC Financial Advisor Council, a financial educator, a blogger, and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ who is passionate about finances and sharing her expertise with other women so they can become financially savvy. My expertise has been featured in the WSJ, CNBC, Forbes, Kiplinger and US News and World Report.
