BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:

Financial Parent Academy

Duluth, Ga

ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
The Financial Parent Academy is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that helps parents, children, college students, and growing adults with financial education. Our mission is to equip families with the necessary information to take control of their financial future and pass down knowledge for generations to come by teaching financial education.

The Financial Parent Academy is the cure for the 21st Century to help eliminate the financial illiteracy epidemic that continues to spread rapidly across the U.S. The academy is a place where both parents and children have an opportunity to learn financial education. They have a chance to attend programs that have been designed to fit their specific needs. The difference between our academy and other financial institutions is that parents have a place for their children to go to help reinforce the financial information they teach their children at home.

We offer Financial Parenting Workshops, Kid Workshops for students in grades K-12, Adult Workshops, Youth Entrepreneur Camp, on-campus assistance at schools/community organizations, after-school program assistance, and personal one-on-one counseling.

At FPA, our students are family to us and we show that by respecting their needs, showing them appreciation, and walking alongside them as they reach their financial goals

THE STORY:
I started in the financial industry back in 2008. I was working in the corporate world and was introduced to an opportunity to teach adults financial education. While teaching adults for several years I would always hear people say, "I wish someone would have told me this when I was younger." I remembered feeling the same way when I was learning the information. After having my daughter Madison in 2013, I made up my mind that I would be the change I wanted to see in financial education. I started my journey by publishing my book, Financial Parenthood: The Keys to Raising a Rich Kid. The book walks parents through the different phases of financial development that children go through and what type of information children should be exposed to in the financial world before they leave home at the age of 18 years old.

Still, after writing the book, I knew I had a bigger calling in life to reach more families and give them a bigger platform to succeed on. That's when Financial Parent Academy was birthed.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:
I am featured in the 2017 edition of “Who's Who in Black Atlanta” and named a 2017 "Person on the Move" in the Atlanta Business Chronicle. I was chosen to serve on the National Financial Educators Council Personal Finance Speakers Association. For my service, I received a National Financial Educators Day Award from the National Financial Educators Council. I was chosen this year to serve as co-chair of the Atlanta Black Chambers Financial Services Committee for my commitment to serve the community.

OUTLOOK:

When I am not working, I love to spend time with my daughter, Madison. I also like to spend time at the park once a week to reflect.

In the next 5-10 years, I see the Financial Parent Academy with our own building and providing outreach services around the U.S.

HEROES:

My mom was my number one mentor growing up. She helped set the standards for my attitude to success. As a business owner, I decided to invest in my professional life and get a mentor. Nancy J. Lewis has helped me learn the real meaning of being authentic in business and staying true to who I am.
