Financial Intimacy

Umpteen years ago when I visited the FIT campus before making the commitment to attend the school, I was paired with a student who was assigned the duty of showing me around. That person was Jacquette M. Timmons. She then, as now was very focused and diligent about executing the task at hand. She was not long for the fashion world, however, and through the encouragement of a mentor, found her passion in the world of finance.

The Fordham MBA has since 1995 developed Sterling Investment Management into the full-service investment education and financial coaching firm it is today, empowering people to be smarter about and with their money. Fast becoming a sought-after speaker on money matters, Jacquette presented at the Tides Momentum Leadership Conference just last month. To see her Tides presentation, click here.

An outgrowth of Women, Money and Romance™, one of the many financial workshops Sterling offers comes Financial Intimacy: How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Your Money and Your Mate. The book, in store on October 1 but available for pre-order now, “goes beyond telling couples how to manage their debt and invest for the future; it shows couples how to make those conversations routine and painless.” (Beverly Goodman, Senior Editor, SmartMoney: The Wall Street Journal Magazine).  Click here for the Publishers Weekly review.

Congratulations, Jaye!
