Katie is the next everyday heroine to be featured in our Everyday Heroine series. She started out in a low-paying government position that was not fulfilling. Now, she earns $160,000 annually and has made the jump to an organization that she loves. She and her husband have over $100,000 in savings and $230,000 in their investment accounts. In this interview, Katie shares with us how she turned the philosophy that healed a cancer diagnosis into a life philosophy that has served her well on the road to financial abundance.
We start off by delving into Katie’s background to understand how her attitudes toward money developed, especially as the child of a CPA. We then stroll down her memory lane to discuss significant money milestones. She picked up subtle lessons from what her parents taught, and recalls how they rallied around her personally and financially when she most needed it.
Throughout Katie’s extraordinary journey to fulfillment, she maintained a close connection with her parents and supportive friends and coaches. Her experience overcoming cancer coincided with a new philosophy of managing and earning money. We talk about how Katie was able to take charge of her professional life, tap into opportunities, and regain control of her financial life by seeking help – both personally and professionally – for guidance on her career and life alike.
