Finding Wall Street is a resource for financial and professional growth for women. Wall Street in a conceptual sense represents financial and economical power. As individuals we all want to find our own financial and professional power within us. Our mission is to inspire you on your journey to success, however you may define it.
The Women behind Finding Wall Street
Lauren (Editor in Chief): Hi! My name is Lauren and I founded Finding Wall Street in September of 2014. I have been interested in personal finance since high school, but when I began college it became much more real to me. I hit financial milestones earlier than my friends as I began my “real” career at the age of 19. I began work in a small software firm where I did book keeping. Throughout my undergrad studies I continued to research credit, loans, and retirement on my own, but my degree really strengthened my investment and saving strategies.
Finding Wall Street became a vision of mine in 2014 when I realized I was hitting financial milestones and my friends had questions about how they happened. I am very aware of the national statistics regarding financial literacy, my generation’s debt outlook, and the current loans college is forcing on us. These realizations and my passion to inspire others is the foundation of Finding Wall Street.
I’d love to meet you, don’t be a stranger, and feel free to reach out!
