Hi! Welcome to my blog. I'm excited and honored that you made it here. So for starters, if you're in the military, let me start off by saying THANK YOU for your service. I'm so glad you're here and I'm grateful for your curiosity and interest in becoming more empowered in your personal finances.
Now, a little about me:
My name is Stephanie Sorrell and I am an Accredited Financial Counselor®. My mission is to empower and equip the military community with financial life skills. I am starting a new business and I hope that you will join me on this journey. We have a very large military and a shortage of financial education within that community. I hope that I can bridge that gap.
I will primarily focus on younger military service members because I feel there is such a lack of financial education that is provided to them. And I want to be able to help them. I want them to be able to stay away from the mistakes that I made. This new business will put more education in the hands of the service members.
Who am I serving?
Young military members. Those people who do not have financial education, those who come from a background where there was not a lot of discussion about money at home, those who may have witnessed some poor money management skills and even those who just want to learn more.
So what can you expect from me?
The plan is to give you practical tips and strategies to become more confident in your spending and saving. From blogs and interviews to live videos and resources, I am here to serve YOU.
Why am I doing this?
I want to prevent others from making the same mistakes that I did. I was wearing shoes that were full of financial mud and financial mistakes. I was a very young person who bought a house and made several financial mistakes with that house. I continued to make poor financial decisions for years and years and years. I finally wised up at one point. That’s when my financial education began.
Be sure to check out and follow me on Facebook because I love going live to share even more info and I think you'll surprise yourself with what you can learn and accomplish from watching my regular 5(ish)-minute live videos.
Let me know any feedback, questions or topics that you want to cover!
