I’m thrilled to share photos from another talented Edmonton entrepreneur.
Meet Kelsey! Kelsey is a Financial Consultant based in Edmonton. During her personal branding session, I learned about many other amazing talents Kelsey has such as interior design and event planning. She truly does it all!
Here is a little background from Kelsey on what she loves about her career in finance.
I've always been a bit headstrong when it came to being a "financially independent woman". I started a small investment account when I was 18 because I was lucky enough to have parents who instilled the value of a dollar, early on. I worked 3-4 jobs throughout university to keep myself on the right side of the ledger and was able to dip my toe into real estate market at 22, purchasing my first home. Not to say I was necessarily financially well educated at that age, but I definitely always had a strong sense of financial "smartness" instilled in me.
My desire to make a career change into the financial services and education field came after noticing my sense of financial literacy was more of an anomaly than a commonality within my generation. Financial Education is not a topic that we, as millennials, have received much (if any) knowledge and training on. Yet, being able to make smart and knowledgeable financial decisions is key to our future success and the only way we can retire early enough to enjoy it!
I came into this career with a fire to educate people on how to understand the products and financial services available on the market and how to make the most of them. I am passionate about showing people how they CAN achieve financial freedom. Talking finances can be a difficult subject but I am here to help show people it doesn't have to be scary or complicated! And by empowering people to be knowledgeable, teach them that they can easily take control of their financial futures.
