1. What does Women's History Month mean to you?
Female empowerment and love in remembrance of the impactful figures of the past and present all while laying a strong foundation for the future. You would be surprised to find how many powerful voices are still being unrecognized within school curriculums and mainstream media, especially African American women. This is why it is important that we control our own narratives and create our own mediums to tell our stories. I love that Glambitious Magazine tells the stories of Black Girl magic that might otherwise go unheard.
2. How are you using your gifts to propel women forward?
By founding Amount Financial Services Agency (www.AmountFinancial.com), I help individuals and couples work through money issues or blocks and come up with ways to create breathing room in their households as well as mapping out their wealth building strategy. As a serial entrepreneur for over 14 years, I have sat down with countless women through my coaching programs and have had so many tell me that their finances were out of control and causing them to suffer from extreme depression, anxiety and hardships. Many of us come from households where money was never discussed or taught and we continue this cycle of just trying to figure things out well into our adulthood. Becoming a money coach has helped me create true impact and propel our community forward by creating strategies for generational wealth and breaking generational curses. I dealt with financial traumas in my life and was blessed with exposure to learn how money truly works and with getting my financial certifications, I make it my mission to spread this knowledge to those that need it most.
3. What advice would you share with readers who are hesitant to pursue their passion?
The mistake many of us make is thinking that we have unlimited time. Life goes by fast and I mean extremely fast. Don’t sit on your passion waiting for the ideal time to pursue it. By that time someone else will have already put your amazing idea into action.
4. How can readers support your efforts in 2019?
Through Amount Financial, I offer Money coaching and group coaching, digital courses, financial events and more.
Also, we are launching our personal finance conference titled, Coin-fidence, April 12-13th at the Vault on Peachtree in conjunction with our amazing partner Chris Campbell of Northwestern Mutual.
The Coinfidence Conference is about becoming money confident, creating a financial game plan and gaining exposure to wealth building tactics. Produced by Amount Financial and led by money coach, Dr. Nicole Garner Scott, this two-day experience is going to include fireside chats with national wealth experts, workshops, high-level networking, culturally relevant resources, and access to money - minded professionals all provided in a very simplistic, easy to understand flow.
