Let’s start with introductions, my name is Maureen and I am a financial advisor for Savant Wealth Management and work out of their Chicago office. I will start out by saying that I love my job! . If you are unfamiliar with the term financial advisor, I have the opportunity to work with young professionals and families to help them map out financial goals and then work with them to help them accomplish those goals. I am the definition of a finance nerd and love talking with my clients, family members and friends about personal finance, financial organization, budgeting…you get the idea.
While I absolutely love my job, this is not the job I dreamed about as a kid. Growing up it was my goal to be either a fashion designer or interior designer. I know what you are thinking, how did you go from those two uber creative career paths to finance? Honestly, the jump wasn’t that far. I dive into this in much greater detail in this post but the common thread between all three professionals is the ability to problem solve and create a customized product. Which is what inspired me to start this blog, the Financial Fashion Planner.
I created this little corner of the internet as a creative outlet. As much as I love talking about personal finance and being personal finance advocate, I equally love putting together work outfits and designing spaces in my home. This blog has already evolved so much over the first few years and am excited to see where it takes me and the new topics I dive into.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you walk away feeling more empowered financially, fashionably or somewhere in between.
