Wealth of Wisdom was founded by four passionate financial experts on the New Hampshire Seacoast. We are served and supported by our W.O.W. Board of Directors, comprised of local leaders from a diverse array of industries—technology, design, law, finance and marketing—each with prior non-profit experience. Here’s what motivates us to share Money Wisdom:
Karen Parker FeldI launched Wealth of Wisdom as an antidote to the widespread anxiety and financial insecurity that exists in our society. Despite the array of information and tools out there, many people feel uncertain and overwhelmed when it comes to planning for their futures – and deeply skeptical about who or what they can trust. My goal is to bring people together in a safe and empowering setting, to learn from one another, share best practices, and help each other along. There is strength in numbers, and a wealth of wisdom to be shared in building a brighter future.
Sean McMullenI believe we must create a bridge between the actions people need to take to secure their future, and their ability to achieve their goals. W.O.W. builds that bridge by sharing financial information in a concise, social and entertaining manner. Today, it goes against the grain to discuss money matters with people outside your immediate family. The small-group setting of our Money Wisdom workshops allows participants to develop their knowledge and confidence together, offering information, encouragement and support to one another. The W.O.W. team cares deeply about the well-being of others.
Stephanie GriebelI want to break through the inertia that keeps people from facing their financial affairs. The sense of the unknown in life can be overwhelming and downright scary. It leads people to feeling paralyzed, getting bogged down in details, or living a life of procrastination. Helping people realize it’s not that hard is W.O.W.’s goal. Through a series of small, simple steps, participants can achieve a sense of control and create meaningful improvements in their financial lives. By building the spirit of W.O.W. we can stand strong as individuals, while supporting our community. W.O.W. is about empowering people to live their most meaningful life – one that embraces simplicity, security and success.
Barry BettersOur relationship with money can sometimes be dysfunctional. As with other relationships, our interactions with money can cause anxiety, stress and even shame. But, just as you can repair your relationship with a person, you can work toward a healthier relationship with your finances. The W.O.W. workshops will help you to understand your issues around money, and empower you to identify and fulfill your highest aspirations. Break through societal norms and expectations that lead to regretful decisions and poor financial outcomes! Armed with knowledge, confidence and a supportive community, let’s make different and better choices for ourselves and our community.
Allison BoliaWe live in an era of increasing social disconnect, overextended schedules, and widespread misinformation and misconceptions. As a result, people feel a sense of isolation in sorting out their finances—and often it never ends up becoming a priority. The stigma of debt and financial illiteracy can deter willing individuals from taking the first step: deciding to make a change. W.O.W. recognizes the value of having a trusted friend to turn to discuss these difficult subjects, without judgement. We created W.O.W. to provide this information and support, because we want to see you succeed.
