Hi, I’m Deb Meyer.  My passion is helping families grow, protect, and share wealth. WorthyNest® was created in 2016 as a space safe for families to share their concerns about a traditionally taboo subject … money.

You know how intelligence is both biological and environment? It’s the same with money. You may have a genetic predisposition to spend, save, or share. But your surroundings as a child also shaped your attitude.

Did your family live paycheck to paycheck, or did it seem like there was always plenty of money to go around? 

Did you start working at an early age? What was your motivation? Was it financial necessity, a desire to save, or simply because your parents “forced” you?

 

Both of my parents were college educated and worked outside the home. They instilled a strong work ethic in me, and I began working at age 14. My first job was serving as a waitress inside the dining area of a senior residential facility.  All of my roles – hostess, waitress, receptionist, paralegal – had the common theme of service, and I saved every penny earned.

My dad’s career in manufacturing was shaky at best. He worked his way up the corporate ladder to plant manager, but his plant would shut down and he’d be searching for the next position in a new city. We moved several times; I lived in four states prior to settling in Wisconsin in fourth grade. As a CPA, my mom easily secured a job in each new city.

My parents were frugal even in the “good” times when they were both employed. They never drove fancy cars, and my dad always reminded us to turn off the lights to save on electricity bills. They knew their priorities and saved diligently so my sister and I could attend Catholic elementary and high schools.

 

Did your spouse have a different upbringing? Do you find it difficult to communicate about money? Perhaps one of you takes “control” of finances and the other isn’t interested?

As a married couple, you BOTH should know what is happening. Awareness is the first step. Then, come together and decide on joint financial goals. Next, test the goals and discover the likelihood of achieving them. Finally, monitor progress.

That’s financial planning in a nutshell. It’s where money and values meet.  

 

Or maybe communication isn’t your problem. Instead, your hard work has been financially rewarding. You want to responsibly manage wealth and do so in a way that aligns with your Christian values. You are thinking about the legacy you’ll leave for kids and grandkids.

That’s where I come in. I’m a trusted advisor who always has your best interest in mind. I bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be. If you’d like to discuss your personal situation, please schedule a complimentary intro meeting here or call me at (636) 344-0415. For clients living outside of greater St. Louis, we can meet virtually.
