When my parents attended my graduation from Belmont University in December 2005, my dad handed me two books: The Richest Man In Babylon and Becoming Your Own Banker. He said, “Read these two books, you will have a test on them and you owe me $20.” (Notice that is in quotes because that is exactly what he said- I will never forget that moment). Begrudgingly, I handed over $20 and started reading. From then on, my life was forever changed. What I quickly learned from Becoming “My” Own Banker was that I was recycling my money. From buying a new transmission to Christmas presents for my family, I began to see the power of “borrowing” from myself and paying myself back. I stayed in Nashville until the spring of 2007, when Texas started calling me back home. After waiting tables and teaching for a couple of years, I made the decision to go work in the family insurance business. It was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made, and it has also been one of the most rewarding ones. Whether it be looking for home insurance or teaching IBC, I get to develop relationships with our clients and help them on a daily basis. What a blessing! When out of the office, I can be found spending time with my husband, Jacob, and our 4 legged children or with the rest of my family!
