Today we’d like to introduce you to Natalie Essman.
Hi Natalie, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I fell into the financial planning industry. I was a single Mom, waitressing and doing an internship at a Chiropractors Office. They wanted me to work there full time but I was making more money waitressing. I was at a crossroads. I was offered a position doing loan processing, market was hoping, it was 2004. Processing allowed me to see that most people were in the same situation with their finances. It didn’t matter how much money people made. It allowed me to see how we are so undereducated in this area of our life, how much stress money causes and how much it affects the family dynamic. Number one cause of divorce is money! I have always loved money, numbers and psychology. I always wondered why there is more scripture on money than any other subject so I started diving in and became a little obsessed.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No, it has not been a smooth road! Entrepreneurship never is but isn’t that the best part? I’m a firm believer in it being about the journey vs the destination. Without struggle, there is no progress. The largest battle we all face is the battle of our own mindset.
