Jessica Weaver, a Wealth Advisor with Foran Financial Group with Raymond James Financial Services, joins Laura Greco of SuperPower Mommas to discuss how to improve your confidence by gaining clarity with your finances. Jessica’s mission is to help more women gain control, clarity, and confidence over their finances and the next chapter of their life. Jessica has been an advisor for over 8 years, but during the past few years has transformed her work. It all started when she noticed how uninvolved women were with their money, even with her own parents and grandparents. She knew there needed to be a way to make an overwhelming topic like money more approachable to women. And along with her career she is a momma of a one year old. Listen now as Jessica and Laura explore the importance of becoming comfortable and gaining clarity with money and being a momma in this modern world.
Hello, and welcome. You’re listening to SuperPower Mommas, and I’m Laura Greco, your host, and I’m so excited to be talking with you today. We are speaking on this topic of how to improve your confidence by gaining clarity around your finances, and I have Jessica Weaver with me, and she is a wealth advisor.
Jessica’s mission is to help more women to gain control, clarity, and confidence over around their finances. She’s been working in this wealth management for about eight years, and what she noticed was that how women are not as involved in their finances, or the understanding of money, and it becomes overwhelming to them as a topic.
So Jessica’s mission, of course, is to help to bridge that gap, and help women to be more engaged, and she’s a mom. I met Jessica at a meeting that we both are a part of called, Believe, Inspire, Grow. She gave a beautiful presentation, she wrote a book, and anyway, I’m so excited to have her with us, so please welcome Jessica.
Hi. Hi, Laura. How are you?
I’m great. How are you?
I’m so excited to be here, and to be talking with you about Super Power Mommas. This is awesome.
Yeah, and you’re going to share your wealth with us. You’re a mom now, your little girl is about a year old now, right?
She turned one last week. I can’t believe it. She’s starting to walk now, too. It’s amazing.
Isn’t that great?
It’s a fun time, yeah. It gets better, and better.
Yes, it does. Yes, it does. And, you’ll learn more, and more as you go.
Oh, I’m sure I will.
So anyway, I love that you are looking to help people improve on their confidence, especially moms, or women. That will really help them to gain clarity with their fiances, and then gain that confidence as they go. So, we have a traditional question that we always ask mommas when they come on our show, or anyone, which is what is your momma super power?
I think my super power is really thinking outside the box when it comes to your money. My whole mission is to make money not a taboo topic, that it’s approachable, that we need to be talking about it, and we need to be constantly trying to improve our relationship with money, just like we have relationships with our husbands, with our kids, our family, you have a relationship with your money, and that relationship, it needs its own TLC. It needs to be nurtured, all right?
Yeah, and I love how you say, “Money,” often, and deliberately. That can be an energetic trigger, couldn’t it?
It is, and people think money, and sometimes its too painful to deal with, so they avoid it. It overwhelms them, it stresses them out, and so, I make it a point of let’s talk about it, let’s talk about the big elephant in the room, and address it, because that’s the only way you can move forward with your life. We always think we need to figure everything else out first, and then I’ll address the money. But, I’m the complete opposite. I strongly believe, and I’ve seen it happen time, and time again with the women I work with, that we need to get the money under control, because it allows you to do all these other wonderful things with your life.
Beautiful. Jessica, I’m going to ask you this question, so you’re a mom of a one-year-old, and you’re doing your business, right? You’re running your business, an
