It's the motivating factor for the majority of people.
It can make us tense up or breathe a sigh of relief.
Money has been the cause of divorce, fractured families, and unfulfilled dreams.
It's also saved lives, stimulated family unity, saved marriages, and united communities.
Money and what to do with it can be a touchy subject that can create awkward silences at the dinner table and sleepless nights where you find yourself counting dollars instead of sheep.
Enter Katie. Like your own personal fairy godmother who's heard your cries, Katie sweeps in with a smile and financial solutions.
Katie is a financial planner and professional investor and she's opening up shop right here in Sayre. Katie is not what you'd assume a financial planner would be. She's warm, calm, and personable with an undercurrent of polished professionalism. Katie is what you want when having to face debt, estate planning, questions that don't add up, or just trying to wrap your head around an ever-changing financial market.
"It's ok for people to be insecure about their money," Katie told me. "I'm here to help people come up with good solutions and good plans. I want to help people by helping them with their finances."
Katie means this.
I spend a good deal of time talking to people before I photograph them. To do what I do I need to know them and what's important to them. Katie talked at length about her goals of serving others, of helping them make the hard financial choices in life a little easier. Money mixes with every part of our lives whether we like it or not. Katie is here to make it all a little more relaxing and comfortable.
Katie isn't stuffy.
She's calm and smiles easily.
She complements genuinely and expresses her gratitude with thoughtful understanding.
Katie, you're gonna be a help to many, many people as you help them navigate these waters. Getting to have you on their ship will be a blessing.
