The Financial Whisperer, Pegi Burdick, author of It's NEVER about the Money ... even when it is
Pegi began her journey as Vice President of National Sales of a knitwear company owned by a woman and staffed by women. Its client base was all females. It was in this environment that she began to understand the unique intricacies of how women communicate, grow, and interact with each other. It was truly an eye-opening experience.
Unresolved financial conflicts between the owner and the management team frustrated her, and she left for a more sane, predictable environment, unsure what that would be, but she was open to anything that made sense.
Pegi then became a mortgage broker - a position in which the relationship with clients is rooted in trust. As she learned the business, she was amazed at the ways in which so many women had mismanaged their finances. The trusting relationships Pegi developed with these women also afforded her much deeper insight into the intimate details of their lives, and she learned that many of them were coming out of abusive relationships. They were burdened with house payments they couldn't afford, and had children to feed, but were not receiving financial support from their estranged husbands. The stories and the struggles of her clients inspired her to develop the concept for a business, Home Loans For Women. The company strived to help those women keep their homes and repair their finances, and 5% of the net profit went to support organizations that helped victims of domestic abuse.These experiences armed Pegi with the knowledge, skills and passion to create The Financial Whisperer.
