Have you ever wondered how people get hooked on trading and finance? I began dabbling in trading at the young age of 25 while working for a local hometown bank in Somerville, TN.

It was when I committed to it after taking a Harvard Finance Course in my spare time that I truly found my Passion. I believe an individual's story is a testament to the power of education and pursuing your dreams. By taking the initiative to learn investing, I was able to unlock my potential and reposition my career to a path i'm truly passionate about.  

Are you ready to live more intentionally, stop working 24/7, and truly LOVE your life? 
I was too...


It's easy to get caught up in the race of corporate life and lose sight of what matters. That's why it's inspiring to see someone like me take control of my life and create a life that reflects my passions. At the end of 2018, I became extremely sick due to my Thyroid. As I was recovering, I realized a few things, while my corporate job was amazing, I needed a backup plan to supplement my salary income. So, I looked in my toolbox and dusted off my Realtor's License & made it active again. I already had my Tennessee Real Estate License in 2007.  I just needed to sit for the Real Estate Texas Law Exam to secure my Texas License.  

From Corporate Life to Dream Life:
A Millennial Single Mother's Journey to Building a Passionate Life She Loves!

In 2020, I had a 200% ROI in under 1Yr....Me=iFinanceGeek. I just kept rinsing and repeating my strategy to get results.  And, I started to fall in love every aspect of investing. And, this time, this Millennial Single Mother was going to write her own rules instead of letting the Baby Boomer Generation (i.e. Parents) tell me what I should be doing with my life, like previously when I graduated College.

It takes courage and determination to build a life that you love, but it's possible. By taking risks and pursuing your dreams, you too can create a life that reflects your passions and desires and build a lifestyle of FREEDOM that is exclusively for you. If you're feeling stuck in your corporate job and are looking for inspiration to take control of your life, look no further than my journey. With hard work and perseverance, anything is possible. You can start building the life you love today by grabbing my freebie. #JoinUs

"This was Personal...I wanted to Master Markets!"

In 2009, I put my TN license in retirement because I was committed to climbing the corporate ladder and seeing what success results I could achieve.  So, I would just need the validate the legitimacy between states and start the process in Texas. I wanted to put all of my Finance experience into play in order to make this a viable source of supplemental income so I could create my own personal freedom. This time, I wanted to trade more than my 401k. This was personal. I wanted to master Markets that I could not conquer before. In September 2019, I started trading actively instead of passively. By October 2019, I was awarded my Realtor’s License in TX. My plan to building a profitable side hustle was well underway. Then, the pandemic happened. No worries, I still listed my first home for sale and I knew it would be a little more challenging to sell considering the market factors that were at play.
