Want to know a little secret about me?
It is something that I am not very proud to admit, but thankfully is now in the past. I consider myself well educated, competent, highly motivated, and inquisitive. Yet, early in my adult years, I did not take time to understand investing principles nor did I find it of interest. It seemed like something my husband could handle, and so I deferred all things money related to him. I was busy building my career and being a mother.
Fast forward several years later, I found myself no longer married and needing to take control over my finances and investments. However, investing my money in the stock market was a scary concept because I was afraid to lose money. I saw money as scare and it was a source of stress for me, so I just didn’t invest.
My how life has changed for me over the years. I was introduced to a method of investing money that married with who I am as a person and how I practice law. One of the biggest game changers for me was attending the American Dream hosted by Matson Money. Through this workshop, I discovered that my true purpose for money (and really life) was to find peace and joy. At that moment I knew that if I was to ever have peace truly, I needed to see money differently.
I recognize that I am truly blessed with all that I have and I have experienced. I would not change those trials for anything because they have created the person I am today. Through the fires, I was refined, sharpened, and strengthened. I have learned to stand for what I believe in and take a stand for those I care about.
This feeling has empowered me to gain control over my fears, gain control over my finances and freed me to invest in our markets. So, whether I invest a hundred dollars or hundreds of thousands of dollars, I am in charge of my future.
This new filter I see life through drives me to help others gain the same sense of freedom. This is why Kinghorn Law takes a holistic approach to address what is important to you. I want all families I meet me to understand this is possible.
