What is your business and where is it?
My Wayne, PA based firm, Entrust Financial LLC®, partners with clients to help them make good financial choices in all aspects of their lives so they may be confident of their financial security. In fact, my firm's mission inspired me to write Balancing Act: Wealth Management Straight Talk for Women.
Through the lens of true life stories of many women and men, readers learn the steps they need to take to maintain personal financial success. And 100% of the proceeds from the book are funding a scholarship at Temple University for students with financial need.
Entrust has a strong commitment to using a holistic approach, beginning with the investment plan as the foundation of each client's financial house. From there, often with the assistance of a team of professional advisors, we address financial concerns that go beyond investing. Our clients value financial independence so they can pursue the style of living they prefer.
What motivates you to make divorce healthier?
There may be no time when making good financial choices in all aspects of life is more important or more high-stakes than when individuals are faced with divorce. Money and financial decision-making can be emotionally-charged and difficult in the best of times. A divorce proceeding can exponentially increase the challenges.
What is the solution? It is to partner with a team of advisors who listen, understand, educate and facilitate. This solution enables both spouses, the family, and the professional advisor team to pull together on the journey of establishing for each spouse a new style of living, perhaps now as the single parent head of their own respective household. The founding principle of this solution for families with children is that the spouses may be divorcing but the family is not.
My firm is passionately motivated to promote good financial decision-making so divorce becomes a fresh start for two new households rather than a bitter ending with lifelong negative consequences for the family.
Why did you decide to participate in Make Divorce Healthier Symposium?
I am participating in the symposium because of my passion for helping women become increasingly confident in the pursuit of financial well-being. The planning required for financial well-being is complex and requires intention and action.
The symposium provides a crucial forum for addressing a number of arenas for healthier divorce, including financial. In the financial arena, knowing how to put all the economic cards on the table is a first step in formulating a game plan to address individual and family needs–so financial resources can serve everyone's interests. Serving everyone's interests during pivotal times leads to healthier results.
What do you hope to take away from the Make Divorce Healthier symposium?
I hope to refresh my skills in the arenas affecting healthier divorce that go beyond the financial, skills such as counseling, current legal trends, and transition skills to assist former spouses and families as they begin their new lives.
My goal is to hone my personal and professional skills as well as to build my network of professionals, thereby strengthening the recommendations and service our Entrust team provides to benefit clients.
Are you a changemaker?
